Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is set to hit the silver screens on October 2nd amidst sky-high expectations. The trailer has added more buzz to the film.
However, Sye Raa will be facing stiff competition from Hrithik Roshan’s WAR in Hindi. Both these films are releasing on the same day, so theater sharing is expected to be a big problem.
As of now, Sye Raa will be getting less than 25% screens in multiplexes(Hindi circuit). WAR will be getting a much-wider release in North India.
It needs to be noted that Sye Raa’s Hindi rights were sold for a fancy price. The film will be distributed by Anil Thadani. The periodic drama will have to attain a very positive word of mouth right from day 1 if it is to have a good run at the ticket counters in North India. This is the biggest challenge for Sye Raa now.
In Telugu, Sye Raa does not have any big competition. We can expect the film to get off to a very good start.
