Sekhar Kammula’s recent film, Anamika had good number of premieres across the United States thanks to the popularity of Sekhar Kammula there. The film is the first remake in Kammula’s career and we are receiving lukewarm response for it. The film is not a faithful remake of Kahaani. The reports we get from the people who watched the film is that the movie is okay for who did not watch Kahaani. And the people who have watched the original are not enjoying the film much.
The film is expected to do good (in terms of collections) today due to May Day holiday and the weekend. We will have to see how it sustains at the box office from Monday! The most alarming thing is the absence of Nayantara from the promotional activity. This film definitely needs a publicity push. We will have to see how Sekhar Kammula manages it!
