4 Hours Duration For Oka Manasu?


If grapevine is to be believed, the original duration of Oka Manasu was about 4 hours. Editor had reportedly very tough time in editing the film and cutting short the duration by over 1 hour. Even recently another 15-16 minutes were chopped from the film to make it slick.

“Only for the editing of the film, it took nearly 2 months,” said a source in the know. Director, editor sat on the film’s editing table close to two months and finally shaped up the film by reducing few unwanted scenes.
Directors Sekhar Kammula, Srikanth Addala, and to an extent Rajamouli, Trivikram too suffered with the same problem in the past. While Rajamouli (divided Baahubali into two parts and delivered blockbuster with first part), Trivikram (Trimmed A.Aa by 18 minutes before release) proved to be successful and exception, others failed.
Let’s see where Ramaraju stands. Even his debut film Mallela Theeramlo Sirimalle Puvvu received good reviews but critics panned the lag in the film.
