Emerging as crazy hero in Tollywood with just four films, Vijay Devarkonda also tried to step into Tamil films. While it is not unusual to look towards Tamil industry after two blockbusters, heading towards Tamil films so early was a mistake. While many star heroes of Tollywood plan to enter Tamil films, Vijay also with his craze tried to score the success in Tamil industry. The feedback to ‘Nota’ movie shows that dubbing a film which he originally did in Tamil was a mistake.
‘Nota’ featuring Vijay Devarkonda as the hero and made under the direction of Anand Shankar with Gnanvel Raja as the producer was released on Friday but received negative feedback. Except Vijay there is no other actor in the movie who is liked by audiences and that is why it got negative feedback. Due to pre-release craze and Vijay’s star craze, the opening in the form of advanced booking was good. However, trade circles predicted that by the week-end the collections will fall substantially.
Going by the pre-release business of ‘Nota’ it is estimated that the film will suffer over 50 percent loss. However, because of Tamil nativity and made in the backdrop of Tamil politics, this movie’s position is slightly better in Tamil. ‘Nota’ is a setback to Vijay who even before completing 10 films had hoped to prove himself before Tamil audiences. By learning Tamil and speaking Tamil eloquently, he floored the audiences there. However, Vijay who had won lot of craze from Telugu audiences has landed himself in a situation where he had to hang his head before them. This is because Telugu audiences took no interest in ‘Nota’ dubbing version. Mahesh Babu, who had much higher craze, had entered Tamil industry after 23 movies with ‘Spider’ but failed to make a mark for himself. Telugu audiences also rejected the movie. Now Vijay’s situation also looks like that of Mahesh.
