On February 24, the day of Shivaratri, there are some medium budget and small releases sheduled.

Then there’s Lakshmi Bomb, directed by Karthikeya Gopalakrishna, with Lakshmi Manchu playing the lead. It is a comedy entertainer and has the heroine playing Justice Lakshmi. Just when you thought Anjali has faded into oblivion, her film Chitrangada directed by Ashok (Pilla Zamindar fame) is set to release, on the same day. This thriller comedy, titled Yarni in Tamil, has had a delayed release due to lot of time spent on completing computer graphics.

Venkatapuram, is a murder mystery starring Rahul (of Happy Days fame) and Mahima Makhwana is directed by Venu Madikanti and has Ajay playing the a cop.

Two films — Gunturodu starring Manchu Manoj and Kittu Unnadu Jagrattha with Raj Tharun in the lead — have been pushed to March. Two small films Nede Choodandi and Police Power are also likely to be postponed.

There is also Yaman, a political thriller starring Vijay Antony and Miya George. The film is eagerly looked forward to since Vijay’s Bichagadu and Bethaludu were big successes.

The biggest Shivaratri release is Winner starring Sai Dharam Tej and Rakul Preet Singh and directed by Gopichand Mallineni.

Theatres presently screening Nenu Local, Om Namo Venkatesaya and Singham will have to make way for all these films for Shivaratri. Ghazi, which is touted to be a multiplex film scheduled for February 17, will not have any bearing on Shivaratri releases.
