Samantha doesn’t fall in love with the commercial pot-boilers, but it is obvious that she is eager to work on a range of initiatives with a wide audience. There is no doubting that the lockdowns and the pandemic have had a big impact on how people watch television. Filmmakers are having a harder time getting people to come to the theatres now that everyone is used to seeing movies online.
As performers and directors, we have thus had to rethink and rewrite. When I initially heard Yashoda talk about this movie, when I started working on it, and even now that I’ve watched the finished result, I felt that it was undoubtedly a theatrical experience. The family man 2 actress talked openly about how Yashoda has everything needed to entice viewers to the movies, saying, “Whether it’s the world, the setup, the visuals, or the thrills, it’s definitely an immersive watch that deserves to be experienced on the big screen and with the right kind of audio to really experience it fully.”
Yashoda makes its premiere on November 11th and also features Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Unni Mukundan. Yashoda is not her Bollywood debut, but because it is dubbed and will be released in hindi along with other languages, it will be her first hindi film to be shown in theatres all throughout the nation.
