Tollywood popular production and distribution house UV Creations is releasing Suriya’s upcoming flick ‘Thaanaa Serndha Koottam’ in Telugu as Gang for Sankranthi, despite heavy competition for the festival.
Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyaathavaasi, Balakrishna’s Jai Simha and Raj Tarun’s Rangula Ratnam are the other Telugu films hitting the screens for Sankranthi, although Trivikram Srinivas directorial released today has got negative talk.
UV Creations has earlier dared to release their medium range films like Express Raja and Mahanubhavudu against top star movies during festival seasons and they attained success both the times. This time again, they are ready for another challenge and they hope the festival sentiment work in favor of them.
The fact is Gang is not a straight film. It is official remake of Bollywood hit Special 26 that starred Akshay Kumar in lead role. Though several filmmakers in South tried to make freemake for the Hindi movie, things didn’t materialize.
Gnanavel Raja bought Special 26 rights and director Vignesh Shivan made few changes to the script to suit sensibilities of south audiences.
The film’s trailer hints that, it has elements for classes as well as masses. While the visuals appear to be classy in Trivikram style, Suriya’s getup and his acts are completely massy.
The big question is how tough fight can Suriya’s film give to other Sankranthi outings!
