Top kollywood director Shankar’s ‘Snehitudu’ which was released last week amidst huge expectations failed to impress tollywood movie lovers. This came as surprise to many because Shankar enjoys tremendous craze among people and with the presence of goan beauty Ileana thought to be a sure hit. But everything went topsy turvy with the film being a carbon copy of bollywood hit ‘3-Idiots’ which many watched and fresh in memory. Along with it Vijay’s lack of fan following in tollywood proved to be a hindrance in the film’s performance and even Ileana failed to illuminate on screen paling in comparision with her yesteryear glamor. Many who watched the film felt she looked like a patient. Though the film did well in kollywood with Ilayadalapati Vijay’s mass following next only to Rajinikanth helping the cause, the film is making astronomical losses in Andhra Pradesh. Buzz is overseas distributors who bought the rights solely going by the stature of director Shankar falied to recover even their prints cost which proved to be a disaster suffering huge losses.
