Nithiin gets a consolation prize, finally!


Nithiin had pinned so much hope on 'Extra-Ordinary Man' last year. Released in theatres on December 8, the action entertainer was crushed by Nani's 'Hi Nanna' at the box office. "This is the best character I have ever played," the 'Bheeshma' actor said before its release. So, its tragic failure was unexpected as far as Nithiin was concerned.

While the movie was a disaster at the BO, the 'A Aa' and 'Rang De' actor got a consolation prize this week. He can take heart from the fact that Netizens are lauding the storyline and core idea of 'Extra-Ordinary Man'. "Vakkantham Vamsi is a super-talented writer but a below-average director. The films he wrote, like 'Kick' and 'Race Gurram', had fab content. However, as a director, he doesn't know the execution part. 'Naa Peru Surya' in 2018 and 'Extra' now have proved it," a Netizen opined.

While 'Extra' was an extraordinary disappointment in theatres, it is garnering some positive responses after its recent OTT release. The idea of a junior artist taking on a powerful person and becoming a hero in real life has been appreciated by viewers. Unlike other flops featuring Nithiin (like 'Check'), this one is going to be different. It will be remembered by OTT viewers as a decent film.
