Deepavali is one such festival which is celebrated by all age groups with fervor. Apart from the special food and crackers, films are something that audiences look forward to.
Based on the same logic, this season is considered to be a
superb time to release a movie, be it in any film industry of
India. For the same reason, a number of big films are hitting
screens on the same day.
As you all know, even we have films of three biggest stars
locking horns this week - Mukunda Murari and Santhu
Straight Forward. There was a slight chance of Santhu being
postponed, but that just ended up as a speculation.
Mukunda Murari, which brings two superstars together,
is the remake of Hindi film Oh My God, but fans are least
bothered about this fact. Fans just want to see two superstars
together on screen.
Nandakishore, who has proven his capability of directing remakes
is wielding the megaphone for this flick. He has made necessary
changes to suit the nativity, and he has also increased the screen
time for Sudeep, and added a special song with Bhavana and
Top distributor MN Kumar has produced the flick in association
with Jayashri Devi. MN Kumar has ensured that the film is released
in over 260 theaters throughout the state. The film has got
excellent theaters in Hubli region and average set-up in Bangalore
Santhu Straight Forward also brings together two
superstars Yash and Radhika Pandit for fourth time. Mahesh Rao has
directed the flick, he has also confirmed that it is an original
script and not a remake.
Yash's last release was Masterpiece, which got gigantic
openings in the Christmas weekend last year, could not sustain the
collections over the next few weeks. The film ended up as a break
If Yash succeeds with this film, his position in top league will
be reiterated. And this success will be even more powerful because
this comes after competing with a biggie.
Jayanna Films is releasing the film throughout the state in over
260 theaters. They have got good theater set-up in Bangalore and
average in other parts of Karnataka.
We have to wait and see whether Mukunda Murari or Santhu Straight Forward will triumph, but we hope both the films achieve the success at the box office.
