Gopichand’s long delayed film Aaradugula Bullet is finally releasing this weekend. The film that is directed by B Gopal was delayed several times right before its release because of the financial hurdles. Nayanthara played the leading lady and Prakash Raj played another important role in Aaradugula Bullet. The makers finally announced that the film releases on October 8th and the trailer of the film is out. The trailer brings a bad impression on the audience as the trailer cut looks stale and old fashioned.
Aaradugula Bullet is a formula based commercial template film that will not appeal to the audience as the trend has changed completely. The quality is poor and the trailer hints that Aaradugula Bullet will offer nothing for the audience. Manisharma composed the music and background score for Aaradugula Bullet. Tandra Ramesh produced the film under the banner Jaya Balajee Real Media Pvt. Ltd. The film will clash with Vaisshnav Tej’s Kondapolam which is releasing on the same day.
Actor Prabhas has congratulated Seetimaarr team including his good friend Gopichand for the success of the movie.
In an Instagram post, he said, “My friend Gopichand scored a Blockbuster with #Seetimaar… Very happy for him !”
The ‘Baahubali’ actor added: “Kudos to the movie team for coming forward to release the first big film post the Covid 2nd wave, despite the prevailing circumstances.”
Directed by Sampath Nandi, the film is produced by Srinivasaa Chitturi under Srinivasaa Silver Screen.
Tamannah, Bhumika Chawla and Rahman have played key roles.
Though the Telugu audience are ready to rush to theatres and watch films, the ticket pricing GO in Andhra Pradesh turned out to be the major barrier for the filmmakers. Most of them are not ready to risk and release their films till the GO gets revised. It is now clear that the GO may not be revised anytime soon as per the recent happenings. Gopichand’s Seetimaarr is the first biggie that is releasing after the second wave of the pandemic. The film is hitting the screens tomorrow and will take the advantage of the long weekend.
Several filmmakers are eagerly waiting to see how Seetimaarr performs at the box-office. The box-office numbers of Seetimaarr will open doors for several medium-budget films if the footfalls are good. Movies like Love Story will release in September and several films will release during October. For now, Tollywood is focused on Seetimaarr’s release. The film is a mass entertainer directed by Sampath Nandi. Gopichand and Tamannaah played the lead roles in this sportsdrama that is set in the backdrop of Kabaddi.
With just a few days left for the release of Seetimaarr, Megastar Chiranjeevi has wished the team all success.
In a video launched by the film’s team, Chiranjeevi, along with Sampath Nandi, is seen watching the trailer of Seetimarr and appreciating it.
In the Megastar own’s words, “I have just watched Seetimarr trailer. It is impressive. The film is based on rural sport kabaddi. I know Sampath Nandi for long time. He is good at narration.”
Chiranjeevi states further: “Gopichand, Tamannah and Bhumika have played key roles in this film. A bunch of fresh girls were trained in kabaddi.Films with such stories are the need of the hour, especially at a time when our girls have won in Tokyo Olympics.”
“I recently felicitated Olympic winner PV Sindhu. India is proud about women’s victory.Seetimarr is about how will it be if kabaddi is played by women. What are the hurdles and insults they face and achieve finally. Films like this should come and motivate all. I wish all the very best, Sampath. Good luck to entire team,” he added.
The movie is bankrolled by Srinivasaa Chitturi under the banner of Srinivasaa Silver Screen. It will hit screens on September 10.
Gopichand and Tamannaah starrer Seetimaarr, is scheduled for a worldwide release on Sept 3rd
The sports-drama film is directed by Sampath Nandi. Gopichand will be seen as a coach of an Andhra Pradesh Kabaddi team, whereas the Milky beauty will be playing the coach of a Telangana Kabaddi team. Digangana Suryavanshi plays the role of a reporter. The film is bankrolled by Srinivasaa Silver Screen, with music by Mani Sharma.
Apart from Tamannaah and Gopichand, the film also features Bhumika Chawla and Rahman in pivotal roles.
The ticket pricing GO issued by the government of Andhra Pradesh made Telugu cinema shattered. Though the situations are favorable in Telangana, the filmmakers and the actors are not ready to take a risk and release their films in theatres considering the low ticket prices and 50 percent occupancy in Andhra Pradesh. The experts are warning of the third wave of coronavirus which is worrying them much more. Amazon Prime acquired the rights of Nani’s Tuck Jagadish and the film will head for a direct digital release.
Gopichand is done with the shoot of Seetimaar long ago and the first copy is now ready. With tough situations surrounding the theatrical release, the makers are finding the best deal and head for OTT release. The deal will be closed in a couple of days and Seetimaar will have its digital release in September. Movies like Drishyam 2, Virata Parvam and Maestro will have a direct OTT release soon. Some more Telugu films are choosing digital paths and the announcements would be made soon.
Manly Star Gopichand is struggling for success for some time. The actor is done with the shoot of Seetimaar and this mass entertainer will release soon. Gopichand is now busy with Maruthi’s Pakka Commercial which is expected to release during the end of this year. His 30th film is announced today and it will be directed by Sriwass. The duo worked together in the past twice and delivered blockbusters Lakshyam and Loukyam.

Gopichand would face an acid test with Seetimaarr which is a sports drama based on Kabaddi. The film’s teaser is out today and it hints that Seetimaar is packed well with action and is balanced with the sport. Gopichand plays a Kabaddi coach who has a backstory with revenge.

Chanakya Movie Review
TELUGU360 RATING : 2/5
Macho hero Gopichand has pinned a lot of hopes on his next film Chanakya which is billed as a spy thriller. Going through a lean patch with a spate of forgettable films, Gopichand is now very confident of making a strong comeback with this film. The interesting promos have generated decent buzz in audience and Gopichand’s impressive transformation is going to be one of the biggest assets for the film.
Chanakya has Gopichand playing a spying agent working for RAW and the story is set in the backdrop of Karachi. Directed by Thiru, the film has Mehreen Pirzada as the leading lady.
RAW agent Arjun ( Gopichand ) captures a dreaded criminal Abdul Saleem in a dangerous mission. Saleem’s boss Qureshi is a high profile Pakistani terrorist leader, who abducts a team of RAW agents in counter to saleem’s capture. Rest of the story is how the RAW and Pakistani terrorist group plan attacks and counter attacks to release their respective team members
The film takes off on high note with an action episode by Indian RAW agents. Arjun and his team attack terrorist camp and captures Qureshi gang’s key person Abdul Saleem. After that undercover RAW officer Arjun’s mainstream life in Delhi is shown. The other avatar of Arjun is a bank officer Ramakrishna. Most the first half is then filled with comedy track involving Mehreen, Gopichand , Suneel , Ali and Raghubabu . Suneel and Gopichand comedy is just mediocre but the other track is disgusting
Ali is a veterinary doctor, Mehreen’s pet dog is in need of mating. The related cheap comedy track is about Mehreen pleading Gopichand to allow his female dog to mate with her male one, and references to usage of condoms on dogs. The first half is pretty flat except couple of action scenes.
In second half things are relatively better as Qureshi and his son Sohail are entered. The film focusses on the core point of counter attacks. But the major problem with CHANAKYA film is , India Vs Pakistan cross border terrorism , RAW intelligence such high profile topics and supposedly super-secret operations are written the way Malakpet Sub Inspector deals with local Gudumba or Matka dealers. There is another character, informer, played by zareen khan . Raw officer Arjun operates in Karachi , his super abilities lack any thrill due to poor direction
Production values are good, few action episodes are mounted at bigger scale. On technical side, cinematography is the best part, background score and thrill factor in action blocks are mediocre. The director Thiru has failed in script work to engage the audience
- Opening sequence, few episodes in second half
- Poor First half
- Cheap comedy track on dogs
- No excitement in this supposedly action thriller
‘ Chanakya ‘ is another disappointing film for Gopichand. A Bigger canvas film with its silliest execution tests patience. For Few action sequences, good amount of budget has been spent but in vain.
TELUGU360 RATING : 2/5
