There was huge hype when Arjun Reddy hit the marquee. When Geetha Govindam came, there was frenzied anticipation among the fans. Even NOTA had great buzz around it. But, for some strange reason, Vijay Devarakonda’s Taxiwala does not seem to have any hype or buzz.
The film’s trailer is very ordinary and unexciting. It reminded one of Nayanthara’s Dorah. All these have gone on to weaken the buzz. Neither the trailer nor the songs have managed to whip up fan frenzy. So, only Vijay’s look and action have to draw the audience. Though the makers feel the film will become a blockbuster, the hype or buzz is clearly missing.
Unlike NOTA, Taxiwala is an entertainer, but will it manage to woo the audience? The film might please Vijay Devarakonda fans. But, will it please the general audience too? If he fails, his stock might come down considerably.
