Acharya movie starring Megastar Chiranjeevi and Mega Power Star Ram Charan released on 29th April. Koratala Siva written and directed the film. He has been giving blockbuster after blockbuster since his debut film, Mirchi. His four films till Acharya have been big hits and Srimanthudu, Bharat Ane Nenu have become classical hits for Mahesh Babu.
Mega Fans expected a blockbuster with Megastar Chiranjeevi as the lead from the director. Adding Pooja Hegde, Ram Charan to the mix, their expectations have gone high up. But the movie has shocked them on the opening day. Major areas in Telugu States did not register Housefull shows and this is a shock for a huge star like Chiranjeevi and that too his film is releasing after a gap of three years.
This kind of dull reception is never experienced by fans of the actor and they are shocked by this. Now, the majority of the responses from people who saw the film are saying that the film is too dull for their liking and it is outdated too. They are mentioning outdated screenplay and story as the major negatives for the film.
Few social media active fans have already revealed de-aged look of Chiranjeevi from the film and anti-fans started trolling him. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Khaidi No.150 took huge opening on the first day but Acharya seems to have failed in generating pre-release hype and also the talk doesn’t seem to improve after the initial shows. We have to wait and see, if fans of Chiranjeevi will try to spread positive word of mouth in coming days or will they wait for his next film, Bhola Shankar.
