The movie is receiving rave reviews and public praise all over Andhra Pradesh and even nation-wide. Nagarjuna"s 3 get-ups, Brahmanandam"s trademark humour and of course, effervescent Trisha and dazzling Mamta Mohandas have proved to be a magical mixture that is drawing people to theatres in droves
With all the talk of King, Trisha, one of the queens of Telugu and Tamil films, decided to watch the movie in a theatre among enthusiastic audiences to gauge people"s reactions first-hand. Since her appearance in public would create havoc, Trisha used the age-old ruse of concealing her beauty in a 'burqa' and going to a theatre in Chennai to watch the public being enraptured by King. Safely concealed in the 'burqa', Trisha enjoyed the movie with the rest of the audience, who were unaware of the celebrity in their midst.
Nagarjuna starrer King, directed by Srinu Vaitla and produced by D. Siva Prasad Reddy under Kamakshi Kala Movies banner, was released on Christmas Day and is running to packed houses worldwide. Being Nagarjuna"s last movie of 2008, King was welcomed with a bumper opening and was declared a super hit in the first week.
