Despite the controversy regarding the way the Hindu gods have been portrayed in the film, the socio mythological fantasy is creating waves in the industry. The onset of the rain also affected the collections. But the records so far shows that the film is on its way to becoming a hit and might even surpass the collections of Upendra`s previous hit, Super.
"As far as my own films are concerned, Kataari Veera recorded the best collection in the first four days. I think people are overwhelmed with the film in 3D.
"Rockline Multiplex had fifteen shows on Sunday. All the eleven screens which were screening the 3D version and four screens with 2D versions was houseful. The same is the case in INOX multiplexes. I am happy that even the screens which feature 2D prints are doing very well. Despite so much pressure, I am happy Kataari Veera... has become the pick of the mass and class alike. I hope the collections remain steady in days to come", says Munirathna.
The film`s hero Upendra is also overwhelmed with the wonderful response for the film. "I can only thank my fans and all sections of audience for backing this venture. The film is turning out to be a major hit in my career", says Upendra.
One admirable feature is that the film is a big multiplex hit as well as a hit in the single screens in cities and interiors. The multiplex audience is flocking to the theatres screening the film to watch the 3D version of the film, while the semi-urban audience are enjoying the film just for pure fun and Upendra`s distinctive style of dialogue delivery.
Though the story is predictable and is a remix of many successful Telugu films, the main attraction is that the film is in 3D technology. Even the family audience and children are thrilled.
