‘Bheemla Nayak’ is slated to head to theatres on February 25. Sithara Entertainments is getting the post-production works completed these days.
An interesting piece of news about the Pawan Kalyan–Rana Daggubati starrer has surfaced. The running time of the big-ticket actioner is just about 130 minutes. The Malayalam original, ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’, was a nearly 3-hour-long marathon. When a movie is that long, the middle portions are usually flabby and unfirm.
Thanks to writer Trivikram Srinivas‘ intervention, ‘Bheemla Nayak’ has been kept crisp. Director Saagar K Chandra’s vision, too, has been in sync with Trivikram’s.
The crisp run-time will definitely click with the audience. Looks like ‘Bheemla Nayak’ is more an adaptation than a remake.
Also featuring Nithya Menen and Samyuktha Menon, the film has music by SS Thaman.
