Ala Vaikunthapuramulo also stars Tabu, Sathyaraj, Jayaram, Rajendra Prasad, Sunil, Navdeep, Brahmaji, Rao Ramesh, Murali Sharma and Rahul Ramakrishna.
Tabu, who last appeared in a Telugu feature more than 10 years ago in 2008 had previously said that she plays an "interesting character" in the film and also mentioned that since she had already worked with producer Allu Arvind, the experience of shooting Allu Arjun's upcoming film would be easy for her.
The film marks Hedge's second collaboration with Allu Arjun after Duvvada Jagannadham. Rolled out by Geetha Arts in association with Haarika & Hassine Creations, Ala Vaikunthapuramulo is scheduled for a Sankranthi 2020 release.
While Konda Polam is definitely a story of a man coming of age and realising his priorities, it lacks the ‘epicness’ it foretells.
In an industry that insists that star kids are the next best thing, the title Most Eligible Bachelor is annoyingly declarative. But thankfully here, the title is not an assertion, but an interrogation.
The emotional beats are inconsistent and overly melodramatic, bordering on preachy in a few instances.
