The much-hyped Rudhrama Devi is releasing in Tamil Nadu tomorrow. The delay in its release is probably on account of Thenandal Films’ (its production banner ) decision, which did not want the release of Rudhrama Devi to clash with that of Puli.
Rudhramadevi is indeed a remarkable film in the career of
Anushka Shetty and
Allu Arjun. Anushka has made a tremendous effort to take on the character of erstwhile Rudhrama Devi. Anushka turned out to be a perfect fit for the role, which was initially offered to biggies like Nayantara and
Priyanka Chopra. As for Allu Arjun, even in the posters he exhibits a sense of nonchalant arrogance, which draws people to the film.
Since Bahubali raised bars for Rudhramadevi, and the Bollywood audiences wanted a better piece, the dubbing rights of Rudhramadevi in Hindi were more than that of Bahubali. And by this time you would have known that this is a record created by Rudhramadevi, outshining other south Indian movies’ records.
Now that the Tamil Version of Rudhramadevi is releasing on October 16th, it will surely strike accord with the audience since Anushka is a familiar face in Kollywood. Her Telugu flicks Arundathi and Bahubali have done well in the dubbed version of Tamil too. One cannot say much about the taste of the Hindi audience since they might have been complacent with the grandeur of Bahubali and may resort to their native Hindi films.
Now we eagerly await to see whether Rudhrama Devi will work wonders in Tamil Nadu, as it did in Andhra Pradesh. But given the popularity of Anushka here, one is sure the film will be a commercial success.
This magnum opus flick is claimed to have a large release in Tamil Nadu. If sources are to be believed, it will be screened in over 400 screens. This applies for both 3D and 2D versions. Let’s give this epic film a grand welcome!
