Srinu Vaitla’s popcorn fare, Bruce Lee opened in the theaters today. An out and out Telugu entertainer with a queer title has been promised to be a fitting entertainment for the time and money expended by the audience over this weekend. The film that stars Ram Charan Tej in the lead has more reasons for making it a must watch. The reason being the guest role played by his father, the iconic Megastar Chiranjeevi.
The film makers have already made it a point that there will be deserving return of Chiru on the screen with this film after eight long years. Interestingly, the last cameo that was done by the star was also for one of his son’s films, S S Rajamouli’s Magadheera. Now, Chiru is back with a bang, making quite an entree in the film. Chiranjeevi’s killer guest appearance has become the talk of the audience more than Charan’s performance and other aspects that surround the movie.
Bruce Lee, an action entertainer has been touted to be one of the most seasonal commercial films with all required elements. Srinu Vaitla’s trademark film making is well followed and admired by the Telugu audience worldwide. However, the director’s last film Aagadu starring Mahesh Babu could not do much at the box office. Vaitla sure is counting on this one to take off to roaring heights.
Die hard fans of Megastar who have been eagerly waiting for the actor’s reprisal have been actively sharing the screen shots from theaters on to the social media. While we sure discourage this act, the rage only explains the kind of influence Chiranjeevi had been having on the Telugu film goers over decades. The hysteria continues on the internet and elsewhere, as Bruce Lee sees some real action going on inside the theaters all over the world.
Bruce Lee stars Ram Charan Tej and Rakul Preet Singh in the leads. The film’s music has been composed by S S Thaman.
