Saaho is Kapoor's first Telugu language film, while it is Prabhas' first film after the Baahubali franchise. The film is clearly a box office hit but critics have called it "an over-indulgent, over-stylised film in which looks have been prioritised over substance, swagger over script."
The high-octane action-thriller recently cruised to a comfortable third position among the top grossers this year, in terms of their box office business on the opening day. Ranked after Salman Khan's Bharat and Akshay Kumar's much-loved Mission Mangal, Prabhas' film beat the figures of Dharma Productions' Kalank and Kesari.
The film also features Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Mandira Bedi in negative roles. Other actors in the cast include Arun Vijay, Murli Sharma, Tinnu Anand, Evelyn Sharma, Sharath Lohitashwa, and Lal Vennela Kishore.
Saaho has been in the news as the makers were accused of plagiarism on two separate occasions. French director Jérôme Salle had said that the action thriller's plot was copied from his 2008 film Largo Winch. In August, a Bengaluru-based artist Shilo Shiv Suleman had said that the makers copied her installation 'Pulse and Bloom' for the set of the song, 'Baby Won't You Tell Me', without permission. The installation was showcased in Burning Man festival of 2014.
Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho was released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
