Acclaimed filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma and Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu have lauded Oopiri, the Telugu version of Thozha. The reclusive Mahesh Babu tweeted: Brilliantly acted and directed .. Oopiri is an outstanding film .. Congrats to the entire team.
“Oopiri a combo film of Tamil nd Telugu stars being such a big hit in both markets proves that cross casting can double the market size. People behind Commercial Masala films assume audience to be brain less idiots whereas people behind Oopiri respect audience’s intelligence,” said Ram Gopal Varma.
The weekend numbers in Tamil Nadu are expected to be on the rise with the film garnering positive word of mouth from both audiences and critics.
