Dheena is getting much-deserved pre-publicity and there is much hype around the film. Directed by debutant Sahana, Dheena is a story in the backdrop of the underworld. Nowadays, Sandalwood is producing too many films related to the underworld. Two recent releases, Ghulama and Birugaali, revolve around the underworld and it is to be seen how Dheena fares at the box office. But director Sahana is not disheartened; he says that Dheena is not just another gangster movie and he has taken care to display that in the film's promos.
Apparently Deepak has finally realized he is more suitable for action roles than romantic ones. After Baa Bega Chandamama, in which he played a soft romantic role, bombed at the box office, the actor seemed decided about an image makeover. Deepak is reinventing himself through Dheena, termed a hardcore action film. Obviously, his physique and style are suitable for action roles and Deepak is eagerly waiting for the results of his efforts.
