Released in 2016, Kanithan starring Atharvaa and Catherine Tresa garnered a lot of attention. The movie’s plot was so impressive that it was picked up to be remade in Telugu. The Telugu version was named Arjun Suravaram and Nikhil Siddhartha was roped in to play the titular role. The movie was slated to release last year but kept getting pushed. Arjun Suravaram has finally gotten a release date. Director TN Santhosh’s movie is set to release on 29th November 2019.
As seen from the Arjun Suravaram trailer, the Telugu movie has not deviated from the original plot. Arjun Suravaram, like Kanithan, follows the life of an investigative journalist who has been framed for a crime. Arjun (Nikhil Siddhartha) is a brilliant journalist who is well-known in the public. Highly respected amongst peers, Arjun is appreciated for his work. But one day he is arrested for being a part of a fake degree certificate racket. He must now prove his innocence but will he succeed?
Arjun, as seen from the trailer, will put his investigative journalism skills to full use and go after the real culprits.
The movie also stars Lavanya Tripathi as Nikhil’s love interest. Lavanya was last seen in the movie Antariksham 9000KMPH which hit the theatres almost a year ago. Is the actress being choosy for a reason? Will we see more of this artist post-Arjun Suravaram? We sure hope so.
