Mohan Lal, Not A Star In Tollywood
Mohan Lal is a star for those Telugu audiences who have a minimal exposure towards all the South regional films. In fact, he is a Super Star in Kerala but hasn’t explored any of his commercial viability options in Telugu states. Most importantly, Mohan Lal is recognized by Telugu viewers only as one of the best actors Indian cinema is blessed with. So, stardom is a question lying long distant.
Now that Mohan Lal is planning to tap on Telugu market, he began the innings differently in Telugu with a performance dominated characterization in ‘Manamantha’ releasing on August 5th. Good point is, producer Sai Korrapati is releasing the same movie in Tamil and Malayalam languages simultaneously.
How far Mohan Lal can pull audience towards theaters on first day in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states will be the biggest challenge? Rather, remaining star cast of Gauthami, Vishwant, Raina Rao and others aren’t real crowd pullers. Of course, director Yeleti is also a name with restricted mileage. ‘Manamantha’ being a concept based flick, hope Mohan Lal will not disappoint the public and his producer.
