Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar's Raajakumara completed 50 days in record number of theatres in Karnataka. Despite the stiff competition from several biggies from different languages, collections of the film were rock steady.
We have tried to list out five reasons on why the movie was able to get the stupendous success at the box-office.
Reason #1 - Power Star Puneeth: Appu, as lovingly called by Sandalwood and fans, is one of the major reasons for the success. Appu has portrayed the role of an NRI and he has lived the role of Siddharth. His dances and fights are another major attraction, with Appu Dance being the best of Puneeth.
His performance in both Australian and Indian episodes are noteworthy. He has given his career-best performance, especially in the scenes that show the old-age home. With the film, he once again proves that he is one of the best performers in the Sandalwood industry.
Reason #2 - "Raajakumara" Title: Once the makers announced the title as Raajakumara, there was a fantabulous response from the fans allover. Who better than legend Rajkumar's son Appu to play the title role, eh? Along with the title, 'Kasthuri Nivasa' reference has also worked well.
There were efforts in the past from several film-makers to have this title for Shivanna and Appu's films, but they were reluctant to have this title, as they felt it may not suit the script. For this film, Appu gave a go-ahead, as he felt the script would suit the title impeccably.
Reason #3 - A Good Script: Santhosh Anandram, after the success of his debut Mr and Mrs Ramachari, has penned yet another script along with his friend Vijay Nagendra and team. There have been many instances of big-starrer films bombing at the box-office due to bad story/script.
However, thanks to the good script, huge expectations around the film only helped further to get better collections. Along with the good storyline, the team had also got a good screenplay weaved around it, which is the reason the family audiences are flocking to the theaters even in the seventh week of the movie's release.
Reason #4 - Bombe Helutaithe: This song, despite not being massy or with beats, sure makes the fans go crazy, and it can be declared as the best song in the recent past. Since the day the song was launched, it got an amazing response.
As composer Harikrishna pointed out, this is truly one of the best songs to have come out from him. Not to forget, Vijayprakash's soulful rendering, which has taken the song to the next level. With perfect visuals in the film, this is that one song which will touch the hearts of each person watching it.
Reason #5 - The Starcast: The makers did manage to get an excellent starcast for each and every role. This has helped the film to a major extent, as all the artists have only bettered their roles. Veterans Ananth Nag, Dathanna, Sarath Kumar, Prakash Raj and many others have done complete justice to their respective roles.
