Hero Ram is hoping for a second hit this year with “Shivam” after the terrific performance of “Pandaga Chesko” at box office earlier though it is tagged as routine film. Directed by newcomer Srinivas Reddy, the film is scheduled for tomorrow (Oct 2nd) release.
Actually Ram would have not worried if “Puli” has released today and his “Shivam” releases tomorrow. But the overall Income Tax raid effect has pushed this Puli to October 2nd release in AP and Telangana, and that might hurt Ram a little in terms of openings. But the blessing in disguise could be below-average talk around “Puli” as Tamil reviewers have slammed it. Hope Ram overcomes this little pressure with flying colours.
