Nani ‘Gang Leader’ is being released on Friday. We have seen in the trailers of ‘Gang Leader’ that this film made under the direction of Vikram Kumar is a revenge drama. However, the kind of craze witnessed for earlier movies of Nani is missing in the case of ‘Gang Leader’. Songs and trailer are attractive but it is surprising why there is no craze. Nani’s previous movie ‘Jersey’ was a block buster hit but this did not increase the craze for ‘Gang Leader’. Nani is doing his best for promotion of this movie.
He visited colleges, gave interviews to channels and even went to Big Boss to promote the film but audiences are not showing any interest in ‘Gang Leader’. The reason is that Nani is not looking like a hero in this film. Hero Karthikeya, who had two successive disasters, is playing villain in this film and this may have become a minus for the movie. In this movie, Nani has played the role of a young man who in the company of women takes revenge. If we see Nani in this film, it does not look very promising. Audiences have no trust in Vikram Kumar. They have not yet recovered from the shock of ‘Saaho’ proving a flop. Thus it is a testing time for ‘Gang Leader’. The film has done Rs.28 crore theatrical business but with this hype it will be difficult earn such a huge money.
