A Telugu Hero Would Have Created More Impact

Filmmaking job is half done if they find the right casting. But somehow Valmiki movie looks like a half-filled glass for this particular hero, who did splendid performance but still failed to attract Telugu folks.

Though the makers of Valmiki aka Gaddalkonda Ganesh have officially confirmed that they have tried many heroes before trying Tamil hero Atharvaa for the second hero's role, somehow he looked like a misfit in the whole setup. Rather a new face like him, some Telugu heroes like Raj Tarun, Naga Shourya and even Allu Sirish would have been a good fit for that.

Also, the presence of a Telugu hero would have brought more attention to the character and its agenda in the movie. Somehow the impressive acting of Atharvaa and the high pitched voice dubbed for him are completely out of sync on many occasions. The unfamiliarity hasn't done justice to some scenes.

Maybe next time if someone is remaking films that have multiple characters, better they pick up Telugu heroes only. Though Harish picked Telugu beauty Dimple Hayathi for the item song, unfortunately, he failed to do so for the second lead.
