The other new releases of the week, apart from Lover are W/O Ram and Aatagadhara Shiva. W/O Ram is Manchu Lakshmi starrer, and Aatagadhara Shiva stars unknown faces to Telugu cinema. Both the movies are nonstarters and washout.
W/O Ram was a better prospect commercially with decent content, but the total absence of buzz on the ground and weak execution of a relatable story have cost the movie big time.
Director Chandra Siddharth’s Aatakadhara never had a chance. It needed extraordinary content to pull the audience. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
