There was this South bandwagon going on through the pandemic developed by the media mainly to put Hindi cinema down as within the digital world that was the need of the hour to get views or likes. Now post the pandemic there has been a record number of dubbed releases from the South and most of them have met their disaster fate. 



The bigger thing than the final fate is that there are just no takers of South films from the first day as shows get cancelled and they open to such limited audiences that even if there is some likeability in a region where South films are more appealing it will still not get much collections due to the no show on the first day, 



There will be the branded films like KGF 2 and RRR which either have value from a previous film or the director has some value due to his previous film which you know have great chances to score. Then there will be a Pushpa type which comes along and suprises but even that will always be a rarity. Also Pushpa had a budget and scale which also gives it a chance. But the sort of releases which we have been seeing are basically tack fests and met their deserved fate.



Some of the bigger Telugu releases which are probably the best bets did not even bother with a dubbed version as they knew the likely results. The box office collections of South films released in Hindi in 2022 are as follows and the fate outside KGF2 and RRR is a total disaster. Anything can be written to paint a certain picture but numbers never lie.


Khiladi - 1.4 crore


Valimai - 2.1 crore


ET - 6 lakhs


Radhe Shyam - 17.41 crore


James - 50k


RRR - 275 crore


KGF 2 - 427 crore


Raw - 2.3 crore


Major - 9.6 crore (2 weeks)


Vikram Hitlist - 6 crore (2 weeks)

Note - This film has not done well but has held at those low levels. The film started with a 25 lakh first day and may well end up with around 10 crore nett lifetime driven by Mumbai circuit as third week should be better than second due to lack of releases.


777 Charlie - 1.65 crore (1 week)



There are going to be many more South dubbed releases this year or are being planned to be released and the disasters will continue to pile up.
