Yashoda Movie Release UPDATES: Box Office opening, audience review of Samantha Ruth Prabhu film
Sharing about her journey and experience of shooting for Yashoda, which hit the cinema halls today and is receiving good reviews, Samantha said in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, "When I heard the story for the first time, it gave me chills. And that’s why and when I knew I wanted to do this role. Once I said yes to it, and once we were on the sets, it was all about taking it one day at a time and ensuring that we are delivering the emotion while shooting the talkies and delivering the punches while shooting action. And Hari-Harish were a delight to work with because they truly believed in the story and the message that they wanted to put out there. I can’t tell you what that is, you will have to watch the movie to understand what drove this director duo to tell a story like this. And I am glad I got to be a part of it too."
The film attempts to show Yashoda (Samantha Ruth Prabhu) as a vulnerable woman at the outset. Samantha's convictions spill over into the frames; she succeeds in showing emotional urgency. And her action (aided by Hollywood stuntman Yannick Ben and Venkat) lend rapidity to an extent, a part of Pinkvilla reads. Check out the full review of Samantha's Yashoda
