Dictator, a copy of Hollywood movie
The mercury levels are soaring high at the Tollywood box office for this Pongal. As many as four big budget extravaganzas are in the fray for the audiences’ verdict in the New Year. The expectations on the films Dictator, Nannaku Prematho, Soggade Chinni Nayana and Express Raja have skyrocketed among trade circles and audiences alike.
Grapevine is that Dictator Telugu movie featuring Nandamuri Balakrishna in dual role bears similarities with Denzel Washington’s Hollywood movie ‘The Equalizer’. Director Sriwass was completely fond of the 2014 neo-noir crime thriller and asked his writers Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan to adapt it to Telugu nativity.
Balakrishna plays a supervisor at a super market who has a dubious past in the film. He would be rescuing the leading lady Sonal Chauhan from the evil clutches of mafia and it is from there the flashback episode unfolds in this action entertainer, says the buzz around Dictator.
Produced by Eros International and Sri Vedhansh Creations banner, Dictator movie is hitting the screens on January 14th. Anjali and Aksha are playing other leads. Shraddha Das and Mumaith Khan appear in a sizzling item number with Balakrishna in Dictator.
