The trailer has spiked the interest of the viewers. Will it live up to their expectations? Find it in their words below:
Priyanka: Real Star Upendra has let down his fans big time. #UpendraMatheBaa. The film has nothing to offer even to an average viewer.
Wondering how #Upendra opted for the film at the first place.
Shashi Prasad SM: I never ever thought a day will come where I will #walk away in the middle of a #Kannada #movie starring @nimmaupendra #pathetic #UpendraMatteBaa
It's a remake, one can watch it on social media or read it on wikipedia ;) I watch it like a common man, who most of the time walk away if they don't like it. Case closed
S Shyam Prasad: Interval Even Andhra caste surname is retained. So much for a remake. Slower than a serial. #UpendraMatteBaa
#UpendraMatteBaa Going from bad to worse
