Ajith Kumar's dream run, which started with Arrambam, has continued as his Veerudokkade, the Telugu version of his Veeram, has opened up to positive reviews. The audience from Andhra Pradesh seems to have given good reviews for the dubbed version of the Tamil flick.
As far as critics are concerned, Veerudokkade got mixed reviews as they did not find it as a regular masala movie with nothing new in it. But it appears like audience have liked it as they found the film as a perfect commercial entertainer.
After the success of Veeram, there were attempts to remake it in Telugu rather than dubbing it. There was a huge demand for the remake rights, which made Vijaya Productions plan for its remake in Tollywood. The talks were on and Venkatesh and Nagarjuna were approached. But the actors, in spite of liking the project, turned down the offer for different reasons.
It forced Vijaya Productions to change their strategy and sell the dubbing rights. Omix Creations came forward and purchased the dubbing rights.
However, the early reports emerging from trader says that Veerudokkade has got a good opening at Andhra Pradesh Box Office. Though the figures are not available at this stage, the industry observers say that the first day collection has met the producer's expectation.
