Crazy Star V. Ravichandran's dream project Apoorva released to mixed responses, last Friday(May 27). Most of the cinegoers were of the opinion that the movie is very slow, this feedback impacted the collections of the movie in the weekend as well. Owing to the responses, the director and producer V. Ravichandran has trimmed the movie by 20 minutes.
When the movie was censored a few months back, the duration was 139.52 minutes. Now the duration of the movie is close to two hours which is a reply to the fans/audiences complaining about the pace of the movie.
Speaking to a leading publication on the occasion of his 55th birthday, Ravichandran has said that the English quotations shown at the start of the movie and a few unimportant scenes from the second half have been edited.
He further said, there is a group which is working against him, creating negative buzz for the movie but he is not bothered about this, as the collections are good. He also stated that he was not happy with the movie being trimmed by 20 minutes but did it, respecting the views of cinegoers. The edited version was screened from yesterday(May 31) and team is hoping for a positive response.
Apoorva which was released in over 150 theaters by Ravichandran's own banner Eshwari, through Jayanna Combines opened to fantastic response at box office despite mixed reviews.
New girl Apoorva played the title role. Kiccha Sudeep and Kempegowda Ravishankar's cameos is one amongst the various factors liked by audiences. Vijay Raghavendra and Spandana Vijay have played their real life characters of a husband and wife, this being debut movie for Spandana Vijay.
