Shuddhi has been getting rave reviews from the day of the premier show and continued once film released almost two weeks ago. Despite great response, film has not been given good number of shows in multiplexes or single screens.
The team had a hosted special show for film industry and got favorable reviews. Even in the last week or so, popular film personalities like Priyanka Upendra, famous Tamil film-maker Karthik Subbaraj have tweeted in favor of the film.
Priyanka Upendra watched film last week and she tweeted, "@AdarshEshwar take a bow! Compelling, Prolific screenplay, outstanding cinematography, direction n acting! Must watch #LetsShuddhify way2go!" She also has asked her husband Real Star Upendra to watch the film.
Karthik Subbaraj tweeted, "#Shuddhi,a well made thriller that voices out strongly against violence on women.Kudos Adarsh & team for making a sleek & relevant film"
However, none of these accolades from industry insiders nor the audiences has helped the makers in any way as film, which had around 60 shows in the first weekend managed to get shows in single digit in the second weekend.
Actor Shashank Purushotham who has played an important role in the film expressed his dissatisfaction over the reduction of shows despite good collections - "Having made a film with ORIGINAL content, with 9.1 rating on IMDb, 85% (4.4 user rating) on bookmyshow and innumerable good reviews on social media they(whoever controls this)."
He continued -"They could have at least let Shuddhi continue the shows that were running full. I mean they are still making the same money from this film that they would have made from a full house of any other language film (Down to just 8 shows from the 57 we had)."
