Telugu watchlist for February 2023

February 2024 will see a couple of big-ticket, medium, and small-budget Telugu films vying at the box office.

Movies that gave space to big heroes during Sankranthi will test their luck now.

Films with medium-range actors had to wait for convenient dates to show their strength.

Here are major Telugu films which will entertain the audience in February:

Ambajipeta Marriage Band 

To start with, Ambajipeta Marriage Band is a comedy-romantic emotional drama directed by Dushyanth Katikineni.

The Telugu film stars Suhas in the lead role.

The success of Writer Padma Bhushan (2023) increased the audience’s expectations about Suhas’ upcoming film.

Shivani Nagaram is playing the love interest of Suhas in Ambajipeta Marriage Band.

The movie promises a rollercoaster ride of laughter and comedy.

It is produced by Dheeraj Mogilineni and Venkat Reddy and presented by Bunny Vas and Venkatesh Maha.

The film will hit the screens on 2 February.
