2014 turned out to be a very bad year for Superstar Mahesh Babu. He had two releases this year and both of them failed miserably at the box-office.
First one was Sukumar's ‘1-Nenokkadine’. This film received critical acclaim, but all the distributors lost close to 70 percent of their investments. Though the concept of the film is good, zero entertainment and intense episodes didn’t go well for the Telugu audience.
After that, Mahesh came as a powerful cop in ‘Aagadu’. Successful director Srinu Vaitla failed to repeat his ‘Dookudu’ magic and this movie ended up as of the worst films in Mahesh Babu career.
Once considered as a top director, Srinu Vaitla has faced severe criticism after the failure of ‘Aagadu’.
2014 has become a big nightmare for 14 Reels production house as well. This banner has produced both ‘Nenokkadine’ & ‘Aagadu’ and their distributors lost huge sum of money. As of now, this production house doesn’t have any big films lined up.
