Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya and Vishal Reddy’s Irumbu Thirai released in few weeks gap are made of similar plots.
While, Bunny’s film received flop talk, Vishal’s movie is winning rave reviews and is expected to become a super hit.
In both these films, protagonists play army officers with anger management issues. They ultimately get suspended for involving in a scuffle and are asked to meet a psychiatrist to work on their issues.
Apparently, 2002 released Hollywood hit flick Antwone Fisher is an inspiration for directors of NPS and Irumbu Thirai to make their respective films.
Vakkantham Vamsi who proved himself as a good writer hasn't done too well as a director. He couldn’t deal with the subject convincingly and due to bad narration, masses are not enjoying this one. The film needs to recover Rs. 80 crore from its theatricals to be a success. As per current trend, it is likely to end up below Rs. 55 crore mark.
So buyers are looking at thirty percent losses. Overseas buyer is going to be the biggest loser of all as its performance in the overseas market has been disastrous.
On the flip side, Irumbu Thirai is said to have all ingredients requisite for a commercial cinema. As per reports, director Mithran has made the film persuasively to lure action movie lovers. This movie got good reviews and good openings at Box-office.
The film released this Friday and has registered big numbers in first two days and is likely to turn out to be a smashing hit.
