Not many films released this year due to the pandemic. However, before the lockdown we saw quite a handful of films released in the cinema halls that entertained the audience. And as we are in July, like every year, we conducted #BLBestOf6 which is our half-yearly polls in which you select the Best out of the best. Today, we are declaring the results of the Best South Film of the first half of 2020. We had some amazing nominees like Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, Sarileru Neekevvaru, Psycho, Jaanu, Forensic, Anjaam Pathiraa. But one dominated the rest and it’s none other than Allu Arjun-Pooja Hegde starrer Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
Yes, Stylish star Allu Arjun‘s rom-com was a sleeper hit at the box office. It was a Sankranti special release and fans were overjoyed to see Allu Arjun collaborating with Pooja Hegde after Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava and Duvvada Jagannadham. Their chemistry in the film was one of the talking points of the film. Their dance numbers especially, Ramulo Ramula and Butta Bomma were a huge hit among the masses. Samajavaragamana, a romantic track was also a hit. With Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, Allu Arjun has collaborated with director Trivikram Srinivas for the fourth time. His previous three collaborations being-Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava, Julayi and S/O Sathyamurthy.
