Beating the robust competition in Tollywood, Tamil hero Surya carved a niche for himself here. His films get humongous openings at box-office, and people just love to see his antics in mass-roles. This stupefying craze helped his poor Sikander clock around 3.5 crores from AP and T box office on opening days alone despite movie receiving a tight slap from critics.
However, a heap of issues have spoiled the show of Surya and Samantha, as the film is more of an enchanted romance between lead pair rather a revenge story of hero. Also the 165 minutes length of movie is literally boring and dragged the flick to death. Identifying this issue, makers have now trimmed the movie by 20 minutes. Have they shortened Samantha’s romance to make Sikander like a pot boiling action flick?
Probably not, only Samantha’s dazzling presence is savior for the now. Her fairytale romance with her childhood crush Surya will at least entertain audiences in this otherwise predictable soap-opera kind flick. Also it is her ‘bikini’ talk that is engulfing youths and impelling the desire to watch it on silver screen.
