Hit at last! Sri Ramadasu is 2006’s first genuine hit and has the potential to turn into a super hit if family audiences lap it up. The film has opened well all over Andhra including Chennai and the word-of-mouth is encouraging.
The trade was skeptical about a mythological film taking an opening as Nagarjuna fans are mainly the youth who loved his stylishly made Super. In fact the youth audience was very cold to Sri Ramadasu but now they are saying that “it is a must see for Nag’s performance”.
For the first time in recent times, the family audience have come out and ladies in smaller stations outnumber men at ticket counters- a strange phenomenon these days! If this trend continues, then the film will be the big summer hit.
The music of Keeravani and Sneha’s performance as Kamala has ensured that the film touches the mass lady audience. Though Sri Ramadasu is nowhere in the league of Rao-Nag combination Sri Annamayya, the opening assures the fact that there is still an audience for films in this genre.
Meanwhile the Sri Ramadasu unit is meeting on April 7 at Bhadrachalam to get the blessings of Lord Rama! This success meet and the subsequent coverage in channels is sure to boost the film further.
