Prior to the release of the film ‘NOTA’ there was a mania of sorts on the radical stud Vijay Deverakonda but as soon as the film released and it was discovered this was a damp squib, the post mortem has already started. A common reaction is coming from many hardcore fans of Vijay as far as this movie goes.
They say “Before the release of ‘Arjun Reddy’ it got a talk that there are a lot of cuss words and that actually attracted us to watch the film but ‘NOTA’ has nothing of that sorts.” That way, it appears they wanted to see some hardcore words from Vijay’s mouth and that didn’t happen as they expected which was disappointing.
As a result, the fans expectation didn’t work and the film backfired. Unlike the regular movies wherein the openings would be extremely high for a crazy hero and the graph falls if content is bad, ‘NOTA’ didn’t really get to that stage. What remains to be seen is, how will the Tamil audience receive this as it is made primarily for them.
