Chennai, Oct 15 (IANS) After watching forthcoming Telugu action-comedy "Doosukeltha" at a private screening, director Srinu Vaitla is so impressed with lead actor Vishnu Manchu's work that he predicts it will outshine the success of "Dhee".
Vaitla and Vishnu worked together in Telugu blockbuster "Dhee", which gave the latter much needed hit in the initial years of his career.
"The first half of the film is gripping, while the second half is even more absorbing. Vishnu brings in many surprises firmly in the shoes of his character. With his excellent comic timing with Brahmanandam, he brings down the roof," Srinu Vaitla said in a statement.
"He gives an admirable finish to the film with the climax stunt sequence. Overall, I think the film will definitely outshine 'Dhee'," he added.
Vishnu had recently pulled off a stunt 80 feet off the ground for the film.
Directed by Veeru Potla, "Doosukeltha" is slated to release Thursday. Produced by Vishnu's home banner Lakshmi Prasanna Pictures, it also features Lavanya Tripathi, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Rao Ramesh, Raghubabu and Nagineedu.
