NTR's Nannaku Prematho is gearing up to hit screens on 13 January, in the Pongal Race and the team has been working round the clock to meet the deadlines. Apparently, the final cut of the film has come up to 3 hours 40 minutes, which is insanely lengthy.
At times where a film with 2 hours 30 minutes and above is also considered as a heavy-duty, the run time of 3 hours and 40 minutes is close to impossible to get away. Since the final cut cannot pass off the run time limits, director Sukumar is reportedly indulged now in chopping it to somewhere around 2 hours 30 minutes.
These reports that are suggesting the length issues of the film have now turned in to a major concern for fans, as they doubt if it could spoil the core essence of the film. Sukumar's earlier outing 1 Nennokadine also suffered length issues apart from the complex screenplay.
Nevertheless, it looks like the director is on the job to correct his mistakes this time and not repeat the same blunder once again with Nannaku Prematho. With Balakrishna's Dictator, Nagarjuna's Soggade Chinni Nayana and Sharwanand's Express Raja also in the Pongal Race, it is obvious to say there is a great pressure on Nannaku Prematho to come out as a winner.
