Director Srinu Vaitla's latest release Aagadu opened to humongous response, but witnessed downfall in its business over the weekend. The Mahesh Babu and Tamanna starrer movie, which has dropped considerably at the Box Office on weekdays, is facing a big threat from Gopichand's Loukyam, which is slated to release on September 26. The reason is that it has Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan's script.
Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan are among the most successful story-screenplay writers of Tollywood. They have worked with ace filmmaker Srinu Vaitla in his all Blockbuster movies like Dookudu, Baadshah, Namo Venkatesa, King, Ready, Dubai Seenu, Dhee and Venky. They parted their ways with the director following their rift with the latter on the sets of Junior NTR's Baadshah.
Srinu Vaitla did the movie Aagadu in association with different writers and the movie has failed to meet the expectations that it had created prior its release. The movie was criticised for its bad scripting. Now, the attention has been shifted to Gopi-Venkat-written Loukyam. Sources from the production team boast that the film has interesting story that is laced with all the commercial ingredients like romance, comedy and action.
On Monday, Gopi Mohan tweeted, "Watched Loukyam 1st copy.Full length Comedy with a touch of love & action.Gopi Chand's career best film for sure :) Gopichand & Rakul Preeth scenes in first half are so good.Rakul will get stardom after this film.Brahmanandam gari character at peaks." He added, "Writer Sreedhar Seepana did a fantastic job involving in Loukyam from Start to Finish.We are very Happy to work Screenplay for his script."
Meanwhile, Kona Venkat, who scored two hits with Power and Geetanjali after he split from Srinu Vaitla, described Loukyam as unlimited fun. On Tuesday, the writer tweeted, "We are coming on 26th to entertain u all .. Watch out for the most entertaining movie.. Unlimited fun !!!" He added, "A full length entertainer from hero Gopichand for the first time..The combination of Chandramohan & Brahmanandam Garu."
Directed by Srivas, Loukyam features Gopichand and Rakul Preet Singh in the lead roles. Its music, which has been composed by Anoop Rubens, has already got superb response from film goers. As per its promos, the film has rich production values. Considering these facts, trade experts from T-Town predict that Loukyam would get fantastic opening and also take a toll on the collection of Aagadu at the Box Office.
