There are not many films that grab the attention of moviegoers like 'Uppena' did in recent times. This emotional romantic drama directed by Buchi Babu Sana has struck a chord with the audience and the performances of lead cast including debutants Vaisshnav Tej and Krithi Shetty impressed everyone. Vijay Sethupathi's villainism and Devi Sri Prasad's haunting music were the main pillars of this movie.
It earned a gross of 100 crores after the lockdown got lifted and it explains the magnitude of its success. The film was streamed on Netflix and premiered on Star Maa a couple of days back. It got a whopping rating of 18.5 while Thalapathy Vijay's 'Master' which was telecasted at the same time managed to get only a 4.8 rating.
Such huge ratings were not achieved by some super hit films of our star heroes. Everyone who worked on 'Uppena' got benefitted. Vaisshnav Tej turned into a crazy hero with a couple of interesting movies lined up while Krithi Shetty became the next big thing in Tollywood by working with the likes of Ram, Nani and Sudheer Babu already. There is news that Buchi Babu Sana will soon be directing a star hero and Mythri Movie Makers along with Sukumar walked out of this project with huge money.
