Kiccha Sudeep and Upendra-starrer Mukunda Murari will see the light of the day on October 28. The movie is releasing big and is expected to take a huge toll on the business of other successfully-running movies like Ramya's Nagarahavu, Puneeth Rajkumar's Dodmane Huduga and a few other flicks.
Mukunda Murari has generated a lot of pre-release buzz as the movie features two big stars uniting for the first time. The Sudeep and Upendra-starrer is releasing in over 200 screens in Karnataka. The film is expected to snatch many screens from other biggies like Ramya and late Vishnuvardhan's Nagarahavu, Nikhil Kumar's Jaguar, Prakash Raj's Idolle Ramyana, Yogaraj Bhat-directorial Dana Kayonu and Suri's Dodmane Huduga.
Hence, Mukunda Murari is set to affect the business of other big films in the opening weekend. However, trade experts say that Upendra and Sudeep's film should garner good reviews to survive in the game of survival of the fittest.
Mukunda Murari is the Kannada remake of Bollywood hit film Oh My God. While Sudeep is stepping into the shoes of Akshay Kumar's character, Upendra is enacting Paresh Rawal's role. Nikita Thukral, who recently married her boyfriend Gagandeep Singh Mago, Ravi Shankar, Devaraj, Prakash Belawadi, Avinash, Tabla Nani and others are also in the cast.
Th Nanda Kishore-directorial movie is jointly produced by MN Kumar and B Jayashree Devi under the banner of MNK Movies. The film has Arjun Janya's music, Sudhakar S Raj's cinematography and JM Prakash's editing.
Oh My God was a commercial hit movie and was highly appreciated by critics for its message. It was remade in Telugu as Gopala Gopala in which Venkatesh and Pawan Kalyan played lead roles.
