These days a smart option has emerged for the cine industries wherein they are going for hits of other languages and remaking them on their own with some customization. The fact that it is a proven script builds their confidence to do so. However, it is not a tried and tested formula, so don’t be sure it works every time.
The latest release in the Tollywood circuit is ‘Kirrak Party’ and this happens to be the remake of a Kannada Bumper hit. The Telugu version has the vibrant hero Nikhil Siddhartha in the lead and this had also raised the expectations. However, the film has come out and the final report has arrived.
It became a big hit in Kannada but it turns out that here it is only an average treat. The opinion is that the length was high, the story lost its direction at one point and the focus was more on entertainment and the campus feels rather than providing a proper landing to the plot. Overall, the film is getting pass marks from the youth audience.
