Tamil hero Karthi rings a bell among Telugu audiences too as he impressed Tollywood with his self-dubbing and subtle acting with the movie 'Awara'. Since then he is getting good openings for his movies in Telugu as well, but is failing to convert those big starts into bit hits.
Not just Telugu versions, but the Tamil originals of his latest flicks like Biryani, Bad Boy and Sakuni too failed miserably. This pushed our hero into deep thinking as to the kind of flicks he is picking. Finally he has come up with a realistic and rustic flick titled 'Madras'. Released yesterday, this flick received rave reviews from all quarters as critics heaped praises for its technical brilliance and emotional intensity.
'Madras' ended the four-year-long wait of Karthi for a 'blockbuster' talk on day one at box office. Unlike all the time, Madras was not dubbed into Telugu this time and now that the movie turned hit surely some distributor will bring into Telugu.
