'Chandramukhi' tops Telugu charts[Cinema South India] By B. Anuradha, Hyderabad, April 22 : Tamil superstar Rajnikanth's charisma seems to have spilled over to Andhra Pradesh, as his "Chandramukhi" has opened to a terrific response.

1. "Chandramukhi": With Rajnikanth assuring that it would be his kind of film despite an off-beat plot, audiences are thronging theatres to watch the tricks of the veteran star. Will this prove to be his comeback film?
2. "Mumbai Xpress": Kamal Haasan's comic caper is registering good collections in A centres and is bound to catch up in other centres. Ilaiyaraja's numbers are already a big hit.
3. "Bunny": The teaming up of Allu Arjun and Vinayak has resulted in a huge opening but the stale plot could shatter Arjun's dream of a hat-trick. Good dances and action boost the film, but its similarities with "Aadi" could go against it.
4. "Avunnana Kadanna": Director Teja's overconfidence is evident since he has chosen neither a good plot nor a gripping narration and just rehashed "Jayam". Patnaik has tried to salvage the film with a few foot-tapping numbers.
5. "Sankranth": Venkatesh's family drama has crossed 50 days in more than 170 centres and is expected to survive the onslaught of two big, dubbed films. Director Siva's slow-paced screenplay seems to have worked in this case.
