Arakshaka which was released recently did not open to good reviews. The critics feel the movie is rather confusing and needs a second look to get things straight. This is said to be one of the reasons why the film did not fair well with the 8th day collection standing at just Rs 3.42 crore.
Speaking on this the director P Vasu says the central character was framed after a detailed discussion with Dr Rangarajan and there is no scope for confusion as some media claims. He says that the narration is powerful and the character has been discussed from psychogenic amnesia angle. The director also says that Upendra has done a wonder job and he is a director’s actor.
