2019 Telugu Cinema Box Office: Films that brought money

We generally report of hits and flops of big movies and mid-range movies in our Year-end reports but this time we have extended the list. We are presenting a comprehensive list of all the films that brought in money for its distributors or producers. We have included any film, irrespective of its budget, genre and star cast, that collected more than the ‘buying rate’. 2019 has been a middling year for its content. Not half a dozen straight Telugu movies are worth appreciating for its best content. However, more than 20 movies had collected money making it a decent year business-wise. About 190 straight Telugu movies and 80 dubbed movies hit the screens this year.

Highest grossers but failed to cheer up distributors

2. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy – Rs 143 cr WW share
(Rs 104 cr in Telugu states, Average in AP & TS but flop in other languages and areas)
