Prabhas's 'Saaho' fails to impress
After the grand Baahubali franchise, actor Prabhas's most anticipated movie Saaho finally released on August 30. Directed by Sujeeth and made on a whopping budget of Rs 350 crore, the movie was released in 10,000 screens in India in four languages – Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam. Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor is paired opposite Prabhas and the film also features Arun Vijay, Mandira Bedi, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey, and Mahesh Manjrekar among others as the cast. However, the ambitious film has failed to impress the audience. The movie was panned for its poor script and over-the-top VFX and social media has been flooded with memes taking a dig at the makers for ‘wasting a huge amount of money’.
