Other than 2PointO, what is that latest film of Superstar Rajnikanth that truly got a meritorious story more than his usual elements? Kabali, Kaala and now Petta, seem to be playing to the whims and fancies of ‘style’ but lacking the real substance.
Finally ‘Petta’ released in Telugu hinterlands along with Tamil version and got only a below average talk from the first day first show. This is because the film’s second half is very slow and it reminded another Kaala and Kabali. After giving so much hype in the first half, those films failed miserably in the second half, and that repeated again in Petta too.
While hardcore Rajnikanth fans are chilling out in these poorly etched second halves, others are saying that its high time movie makers leave the #Rajnified quotient of a film but really focus on content that is #modified to suit modern generation’s tastes.
And with such poor content in hand, we wonder what Ashok Vallabhaneni is talking about allocation of theatres. After this below average talk, will theatre owners continue to patronize Petta? Let’s see!!
