Vijay Deverakonda and Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s ‘Arjun Reddy’ is a pathbreaker on many fronts. The way the hero’s character was written stunned many as he had a lot of flaws including addiction, over aggression and many more. But the audience accepted the movie and this made a lot of filmmakers come up with similar scripts.
It looks like the upcoming flick ‘Siddharth Roy’ belongs to the same category. Deepak Saroj who played a lot of child artist roles has become a hero with this movie and the teaser came out recently. It focuses entirely on the lead actor’s characterisation. He sleeps with whoever he wants, he drinks, smokes, and wanders around like a madman without any emotion. Amidst all that he is a genius and this creates a lot of curiosity on the character.
But the way ‘Siddharth Roy’ was presented leaves you with mixed feelings. One cannot root for a guy who does every wrong thing possible and this movie looks like ‘Arjun Reddy’ taken to an extreme level and mixed with ‘World Famous Lover’. While the makeovers are impressive, the teaser makes it clear that there is no shortage of boldness in this movie.
Yeshasvi is making his directorial debut with this flick while Radhan is giving the background score. The release date is expected to come out soon and we need to see if the movie is a complete rip-off to ‘Arjun Reddy’ or offers something unique.
