While Hindi films made in Bollywood continue to suffer a fate worse than death, their Southern counterparts continue to thrive not only in their home territory but also in the rest of the country.
After super-success of Pushpa The Rise(coinciding with ‘Bollywood The Fall’) the execrable KGF 2 ,and now the bizarre Telugu hit Kathikeya 2 , a completely different non-action film is all set to create waves in the Hindi belt.
Sita Ramam is a Telugu-language period romance film written and directed by Hanu Raghavapudi and produced by the distinguished banner Vyjayanthi Movies. Since its release on 5 August the film has gone from strength to strength and is now declared a blockbuster.
A Hindi version of the will be released very shortly. The intense love story stars Malayalam star-actor Dulquer Salman(in his Telugu debut) as a soldier and the two women, Mrinal Thakur and Rashmika Mandanna in his life.
Dulquer who has not had much luck in Hindi with Karwan(in 2013) and The Zoya Factor(2019)hopes to finally make a dent in the Hindi speaking belt with Sita Ramam.
