Fidaa, featuring Varun Tej and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles, released today worldwide and has been receiving some great response all over. Social media is abuzz with messages about Fidaa indicating the film is one the way to become a successful one. Fidaa has been receiving a positive response from viewers and critics ever since the first look of the film was released by the makers.
Director Sekhar Kammula is popular for delivering some hit films like Happy Days and Anand. One will not find much hype around his films and in their stories given the kind of narration he chooses. The story takes the foreground rather than the cast in a Sekhar Kammula flick, and films like Anand and Godavari are testimonial to it. And Fidaa too looks to be carrying the same essence.
Premam actress Sai Pallavi is making her debut in Telugu cinema with Fidaa and with such popularity after playing Malar in Malayalam blockbuster hit Premam, the expectations were quite high on this film too. Sai Pallavi impressed everyone with the way she has mouthed her dialogues in Fidaa with the Telangana accent, which is rare in Telugu films. One wouldn’t get a feeling that she is not Telugu speaking actress.
After a series of flops, Varun Tej would have pinned high hopes in Fidaa and the pressure to deliver would have been equally high on him. But not getting bogged down by any of this, Varun Tej seems to have gotten the best out of him in Fidaa which seems evident in the teasers and the trailers. And with the kind of response Fidaa has received on the first day of release, Varun Tej would now be the happiest soul on earth.
Producer Dil Raju is currently going through the best phase on the professional front with most of his recent films making some good business. Except Cheliyaa, dubbed version of Kaatru Veliyidai, Dil Raju’s films in the last 2 years have all been hits. Now, Fidaa gets added to the list of his hits and now makes him one of the most successful producers in Tollywood.
