The film industry is in a constant state of evolution, adapting to changing trends and audience preferences. One notable trend in recent years has been the shifting landscape of film runtimes. Amidst this changing environment, “Tiger Nageswara Rao” is gearing up to captivate audiences with an extraordinary runtime of 3 hours. The question on everyone’s mind is whether moviegoers will embrace this departure from the norm.
Already generating substantial buzz and anticipation with its intriguing trailer, “Tiger Nageswara Rao” has its lead actor, Ravi Teja, fully immersed in promoting the film on a grand scale, particularly in North India.
The film has successfully cleared the censor formalities and received a U/A certification from the Central Board of Film Certification. Yet, it’s the film’s runtime that’s stealing the spotlight. “Tiger Nageswara Rao” is set to run for 3 hours, 1 minute, and 39 seconds, a notably longer duration compared to the prevailing industry trend of shorter runtimes.
This decision by the filmmakers to offer an extended runtime for an action drama is a bold move, as it goes against the current industry trend. The last film to taste success with a lengthy runtime was “Baby,” which also clocked in at 3 hours.
Directed by Vamsee, “Tiger Nageswara Rao” boasts an impressive ensemble cast, including Nupur Sanon in her film debut, veteran actor Anupam Kher, Gayathri Bharadwaj, and Renu Desai. Abhishek Agarwal produces the film under the banner of Abhishek Agarwal Arts, with the backing of a talented technical crew. The music is composed by GV Prakash Kumar, while R. Madhi takes charge of the cinematography.
With its bold runtime choice, “Tiger Nageswara Rao” promises to be a game changer in Bollywood. Audiences will have the opportunity to experience this cinematic journey when it hits the big screens on October 20, 2023.
