Considering the success of the film’s Hindi dubbed version on YouTube, it has been re-released in theatres in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar after they reopened.
South Indian movies have begun to receive pan-India recognition, thanks to the OTT era. But dubbed movies also seem to be doing well, which would definitely help actors grow fans outside their states. The Allu Arjun starrer Naa Peru Surya, Naa Illu India (2018) recently grabbed the attention of Hindi speaking audiences on YouTube after the release of its Hindi dubbed version Surya – The Solider.
Considering its YouTube success, the Hindi dubbed film has been re-released in theatres in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar after they reopened. The film is said to be doing quite well, although theatres are allowing only 50% audiences due to the pandemic. This has encouraged film distributors to increase the screens for Surya – The Soldier. It may be noted that the Telugu original had received mixed reviews when it was released.
The coming of age drama is directed by Vakkantham Vamsi, who has woven a strong plot and extracted brilliant performances from the cast, especially Allu Arjun. Naa Peru Surya stars Anu Emmanuel opposite Allu Arjun. The rest of the cast includes Sarathkumar, Nadhiya and Vennela Kishore. Vishal Shekar took care of the sound score, Rajeev Ravi the cinematography while Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao looked after editing. Sarathkumar won the SIIMA Award for Best Actor in a Negative Role for this film.
