'Sivaji' leaves 'Dubai Seenu' a distant second

Hyderabad, June 26 (IANS) With a dream opening in 300 theatres across Andhra Pradesh, Rajnikant's "Sivaji: The Boss" has left "Dubai Seenu", the previous fortnight's winner among Telugu films, a distant second.

1. "Sivaji": After "Aparichitudu", the Telugu remake of Tamil hit "Anniyan", director Shankar scores heavily again with "Sivaji". It is expected that the film will stay in the number-one slot at least until the end of this month.

2. "Dubai Seenu": Though ousted from the top slot by the Rajni blockbuster, the fast-paced entertainer from Ravi Teja and Srinu Vytla may recover in the weeks ahead, after the hype around "Sivaji" wears off.

3. "Aaduvari Maatalaku Arthale Verula": The trio of Sri Raghavan, Venkatesh and Trisha has produced a comedy that promises to survive stiff competition and stay on this list for quite a while.

4. "Aata": Support of the youth for this Siddharth-Ileana screen romance is likely to keep it going longer than initially expected.

5. "Dhee": Srinu Vytla's film has done well to cross the 50-day mark. But now the days of the Vishnu-Genelia-starrer in theatres may be numbered.
