Ahead of the release, Run Time of 'Valmiki' is creating doubts in the minds of movie buffs. While 'Jigarthanda' which is the original was 2 hours 41 minutes long, It's Telugu Remake is rumoured to be close to 3 hours. Will that be a blunder?
Films having a run time of around 3 hours has done wonders in the past. There were also films which faced rejection because of excess run time. In which category does 'Valmiki' joins post the theatrical release remains to be a mystery.
Runtime of 'Valmiki' increased because of the inclusion off Varun Tej and Pooja Hegde love track to justify their star status. Remix of Sridevi's chartbuster song has also contributed to the increase of length. What will be the end result of these added attractions?
