In recent times, star heroes are calling the shots when it comes finalising the runtime of their films. While some are liking it to keep it short under 2 hours, some are going for hours and hours. But Ram Charan’s decision has surely stunned many.
Completely relying on Sukumar, Ram Charan has left the decision of trimming Rangasthalam to his director only. And then, the director took a second opinion from Megastar Chiru and decided to go ahead with 3 hours runtime. CUt to present, even Aravinda Sametha is having around 2 hours 50+ minutes runtime and here is an interesting snippet.
After watching the ‘final cut’ of the film, Tarak is said to have got carried away by the heavy-duty emotion portrayed in the second half by ‘wizard of words’ Trivikram. And though few wellwishers advised them both to cut the runtime, NTR left it to his director to take a call on the final cut. Looks like Trivikram is convinced that the sentiment will work out and hence such a lengthy runtime.
From Arjun Reddy to Mahanati, Rangasthalam to Naa Peru Surya, many films opted for this 3 hours and 10 minutes plus or minus scenario. As most of them worked, even Tarak is said to be going with guts for the same.
