The makers of the film have announced that Kalpana will see the light of the day tomorrow in over 90 screens. In Bangalore alone, it is releasing in 22+ theatres. It is said that the number of screens might be increased in the next week if it get positive feedbacks.
The trailer of the film and promotional materials have generated huge hype around the movie. Especially, the avatars of Sai Kumar and Uppi have impressed the audience. Though some of the songs are good in the album, the release of the album in hush-hush manner and lack of publicity have not popularised the album.
Kalpana was supposed to release in October. But the plans of release got changed, as there are many films (Tamil and Kannada) hitting screens next month. To avoid the theatre issues, the movie bosses wrapped up the film quickly and made it ready for release this month. Adding to that Upendra's birthday season has given good publicity to the movie.
Kalpana stars Upendra, Sai Kumar and Lakshmi Rai in the lead roles. Shruti and Umashri have done key roles in the movie. It is a remake of Tamil hit movie Kanchana, which starred Raghava Lawrence and Sarath Kumar. The upcoming movie is directed by Rama Narayan.
