Blockbuster Telugu film Pelli Choopulu has been remade in Hindi as Mitron with Jacky Bhagnani playing the lead role.
Mitron that was out on Friday had a sluggish start at box office. It collected a paltry Rs. 50 lakh nett on its day 1 across India and couldn’t show any growth on Saturday too.
Mitron is also getting panned by Bollywood critics for its weak plot point and failed humor.
Pelli Choopulu was a smash hit and became a turning point for Vijay Deverakonda. But its Hindi version’s director and lead actor couldn’t repeat the magic of the original.
Not all blockbuster films can be as successful as the originals. It is difficult to recreate the magic of movies like Pelli Choopulu that strikes right chords with the viewers.
Meanwhile, its Tamil remake bought by Gautam Menon is yet to take off. Gautam has put the film on hold after actor Vishnu Vishal backed off from it.
