Pooja Gandhi’s Performance
While Pooja Gandhi was highly criticised for playing a goon and a gang-leader, her performance as Lakshmi has been the best so far with a lot of substance given to her character as opposed to other heroines during this day and age.
Directed by Srinivas Raju and produced by Girish, the film was not only a commercial success but also one of the most critically acclaimed films in the Sandalwood industry. Being shown for more than 100-days in multiple centres, it also was a major success in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and so on.
Arjun Janya is the music director of the film and is known for having composed some of the best tracks for the narrative.
As the movie was much appreciated, a sequel to the film, Dandupalya 2, was announced in 2014 wherein Pooja played the main character in this movie again.
