The remake of Tamil action flick Vettai, directed by Lingu Swamy has been announced long back. And Naga Chaitanya and Sunil have signed the project in which Thamannah Bhatia and Andrea Jeremiah were zeroed in as their respective pairs. The film has flagged off long back and it has been quite in the chatter mills because of its heroine walk-ins and walk-outs [as Hansika has been piped out by Thamannah opposite Naga Chaitanya] and now for its titles.

Initially ‘Bhale Thammudu’ was considered and for some reason, it was replaced by ‘Thadaka’. And the recent buzz is that ‘Chinnodu-Peddodu’ is likely to sit as the title for the film. Well, it is easily understood that it has been inspired from the popular characters ‘Chinnodu’ (Mahesh Babu) and ‘Peddodu’ (Venkatesh) from the recent super hit multi-starrer Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. But, what is puzzling the fans and cine pundits is that are Naga Chaitanya and Sunil ‘Chinnodu’ and ‘Peddodu’ respectively, considering their markets and fan-bases?

One is a star kid born with a silver spoon who has got a versatile streak and the other is self-made comedian who has come a long way in the industry and has recently made a go of as a hero. But unarguably both need to get a foot hold in the industry to reach new heights in their course. Especially at this juncture, with recent disappointers like Bejawada and Mr. Pellikoduku, when the duo set out together with this ‘Chinnodu-Peddodu’ title, there were concerns about the characterization [Of course Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu were certainly exceptional cases]. Even if this project works, it is not going to make any difference in their respective fan base except for fetching them some more remake projects.

So, will this ‘Chinnodu-Peddodu’ work for these heroes and fetch anything for the director Kishore Kumar [Dolly] who is known by his previous debut project Konchem Ishtam Konchem Kashtam four years back and does it help out the much troubled producer Bellamkonda Suresh? Let’s wait and see…
