Autonagar Surya has hit the screens on July 27th and received mixed response from the audience. Audience felt happy with the first half in this Deva Katta – Naga Chaitanya combination but expressed their concern with the second half. They felt that the second half is lengthy and dragged. Audience feedback is few scenes in the second half are boring and they felt unnecessary, including a song.
With this response on Autonagar Surya, makers of this movie did a damage control and chopped few scenes. Deva Katta and his team trimmed the scenes of length 12 minutes in the second half. This after trim version is receiving a better response. Cutting down these scenes reduced the drag in the movie which is the reason for the bad feedback. As per the reports the collections of this movie have improved now.
Director Rajamouli also commented and appreciated on this action. He said “Appreciate Deva Katta for his guts for glorifying an Individual who fights against the union. His dialogues pack a punch. Samantha’s ‘pillalu Mathram vaadi polikatho pudathaaru’ is my personal favorite. The trimming was essential and good the makers did it early on.”
Naga Chaitanya was much appreciated for his performance and his delivery of lengthy dialogues in the movie.
