A section of audience felt that Upendra's recent superhit movie Katariveera Surasundarangi was weak in the story part and it was also criticised by some critics for the same reason. But his latest movie Godfather is an exact opposite to it, as it has a brilliant story with no room for glamour and other masala elements.
Godfather is a remake of Tamil superhit film Varalaru starring Ajith Kumar in triple roles. The Telugu remake was planned a few years ago and it was offered to Upendra, who turned down the offer assuming that it was difficult to bring back the life to the characters played by Ajith in the Tamil version.
But K Manju, who had acquired the Kannada remake rights, convinced Uppi that he could do the roles. As a result, Godfather is before you and Upendra has almost succeeded to impress the audience.
