Selvaraghavan's magnum opus Aayirathil Oruvan featuring Karthi- Reemma- Andrea-Parthipan was dubbed into Telugu and released as Yuganiki Okkadu last Friday (Feb 5).
The film has taken a fantastic opening and has been declared a super hit by the Telugu trade.
Yuganiki Okkadu released in 93 screens across Andhra and has grossed an amazing Rs 1.78 crore in its opening weekend (Feb 5 to 7), which is super for a dubbed film.
The film took such an opening due to its director Selvaraghavan who is a major brand in Andhra after his 7G-Brindavan Colony and straight Telugu film in 2007 Aadavari Matalaku Ardhalu Verule were super hits.
The audiences in Telugu are appreciating Karthi and Reemma the most in the film along with GV Prakash's peppy music.
The film is being distributed in Andhra by Gjnavel Raja, Karthi's Cousin who has chopped the original Tamil AO film from 3 hours 3 minutes to 2 hours 21 minutes in Telugu! This has helped the film as all offending scenes in the second half of AO has been removed and it has become a racy entertainer.
