It's now inevitable the clash between Prince Mahesh Babu and Stylish Star Allu Arjun has been confirmed with their films Sarileru Neekevvaru and Ala Vaikunthapuramulo are locking horns on the same day that falls on January 12. As per the initial trends, Ala Vaikunthapuramulo is dominating Sarileru Neekevvaru in the following areas.
* Ala Vaikunthapuramulo's first single Saamajavaragamana became a humongous success and stood as the chartbuster. The song is being heard everywhere at the moment. Sarlieru Neekevvaru title song is also a success. But then, it's felt a routine composition from DSP. Incidentally, patriotic song in Naa Peru Surya got wider popularity.
* Sarileru and Ala posters were released recently. While Allu Arjun got good applause from movie folks, Sarileru poster was trolled by netizens as it was more or less similar to Mahesh stills in his previous films.
* Having gone through some updates, Sarileru might be a blend of Mahesh Babu's previous films such as Athadu and Okkadu. But then, hardly there's any clue on the storyline of Ala Vaikunthapuramulo.
Bottomline: A film's success doesn't depend upon initial domination in the competition. If at all the film sustains the momentum until its release and lives upto the expectations, it will get emerged as the winner in the battle. Let's see which film will become the winner in Sankranthi battle.
