After the moderate success of Chakravyuha, Puneeth Rajkumar, who is in need of a big hit, is back with Dodmane Huduga, which is also spelt as Doddamane Hudga. The Kannada movie hit the screens on Friday, September 30.
It is the reunion of Puneeth Rajkumar, Suri and V Harikrishna, who were earlier part of Jackie and Anna Bond. While their first film was a blockbuster, their second film had bombed at the Sandalwood box office.
Dodmane Huduga has Radhika Pandit, who had romanced Puneeth Rajkumar earlier in Hudugru, playing the female lead. Actor-turned-politician Ambareesh will be playing an important role in the Kannada flick, which has Sumalatha, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, Srinivasa Murthy, Krishna, P Ravi Shankar, Rangayana Raghu and others in the cast.
The film has Satya Hegde's cinematography and Deepu S Kumar's editing. V Harikrishna has provided a few foot-tapping songs.
Dodmane Huduga is a family-oriented action movie. The film has drawn curiosity with its power-packed trailer. The audience have pinned high hopes on the flick. Can the much-awaited Kannada flick live up to their expectations? Find out what they are saying below:
