The much talked and largely hyped movie Sikindar came with a lot of expectations but it evoked mixed reactions from the audience. Starring Suriya and Samantha in the lead, this film was meant to be a shot in the arm for all those Tamil flicks which get dubbed into Telugu. However, the outcome was somewhat different.
The common feedback that came after watching Sikindar was about its length. So, director Lingusamy and team got onto the surgery table and trimmed it. Reports say the film has been cut by twenty minutes. The same has happened for the original version in Tamil titled as Anjaan. It is heard that the entire track of Brahmanandam has been removed in Tamil.
It looks like the surgery is a success because the response is getting positive now. Those who have seen the film now are saying it is good and leaves the right taste. Usually film collections tend to drop after first weekend but surprisingly Sikindar has picked up. How much it will benefit the overall collections is unknown but the trend is positive so the film seems to be out of danger.
