Nivetha Thomas and Regina Cassandra headlined the action-packed flick Saakini Daakini released in the cinema halls today on the 16th of September. This Sudheer Varma directorial is an official remake of the South Korean movie, Midnight Runners. The project also stars Johnson D M, Lahari Shari, and Rajiv Kumar Aneja in significant roles, along with the rest. Netizens have posted their reactions to the flick after watching the film on its opening day.
One of the movie buffs wrote on Twitter, “Korean filmmakers try to infuse creativity into a situation and then produce a good fun film. In the name of remakes, our filmmakers show how badly they can de-creativise them. #SaakiniDaakini another example of our immense remaking talent.” Another viewer penned on the micro-blogging site, “Just now watched the movie, career best performance by my fav kukki , you rock the shoe cutie @i_nivethathomas #SaakiniDaakini stellar performance by @ReginaCassandra As usual unique script by one of my favvv @sudheerkvarma.”
Bankrolled by D Suresh Babu and Sunitha Tati under the production banner of Suresh Production in collaboration with Kross Pictures, Nivetha and Regina will essay the role of two trainee cops in Saakini Daakini. The flick talks about how they solve the mystery of a girl’s kidnap on their own without taking help from anyone.
Santhosh Mikey McCleary is on board the team as the music composer, whereas Richard Prasad has headed the cinematography department for the venture. While Viplav Nyshadam has done the editing for the film, Gandhi Nadikudikar is the art director of the movie. As it is just the first day of the release, the final verdict of the drama is still unknown.
