When the film's release date was announced, there was a feeling that Sharwanand's Mahanubhavudu would lose out amidst the two biggies releasing during Dassera season. However, the team went ahead with the release quite confident about their content.
But call it luck or coincidence, both the big films haven't been able to sustain the interest of the audiences. And that has worked in favour of Sharwanand.
The film that got average reviews is being well-received by audiences. Added to this, there is no major film lined up for release this Friday. So, more theatres are being added for Mahanubhavudu.
Starting this Friday, the film will be screened at more number of theatres as some theatres that were earlier allotted for Spyder and Jai Lava Kusa will now be given to Mahanubhavudu.
The film's hero Sharwanand's lucky streak continues as he scores a hit whenever he is pitted against big stars. This time too he has come up with a hit, though the film had average ratings and a predictable screenplay.
