Tamil dubbed film Puli hit the Telugu screens yesterday, while few theaters screened the film from night shows on Friday. Athiloka Sundari Sridevi made comeback to South cinema after ages with the Vijay, Shruti Haasan and Hansika co-starrer film. However, it is proved that she made a wrong choice. Neither Sridevi’s role in the sci-fi was impressive nor her character.
Apparently, Puli’s theme reminds us of several Telugu films such as Bhairava Dweepam, Anaganaga O Dheerudu etc. And Sridevi appeared like Manchu Lakshmi in the film Anaganaga O Dheerudu in terms of getup, makeup, characterization and other aspects.
Both Lakshmi and Sridevi might have thought of getting enthusiastic acknowledgment with their respective films. But, they utterly disappointed with negative reception, not just for their films, but also for their roles.
In the film Puli, Sridevi played a negative role. Even, her die hard fan Ram Gopal Varma didn’t fail to take a dig on her for picking Puli over Baahubali. “Just saw Puli and I am surprised that Sridevi chose this over Bahubali ..I don’t know if it’s her choice or wrong advice but I am sad as a fan,” emphasized RGV.
