The success event of 'Operation Gold Fish', directed by Saikiran Adivi, was held on Saturday in Hyderabad. Released this Friday, the film has been received to a positive response from the audience.
Speaking on the occasion, Aadi Saikumar said, "The film has been getting a lot of applause. Everyone is saying that it's very good. The feedback for my performance as Arjun Pandit is great. I did this film feeling very proud every day. My friends and family members are very happy. The collections are also very good."
Director Saikiran Adivi said, "The talk is very positive across all centres where our film released. So many worked really hard for this success. Abburi Ravi, Aadi Saikumar and other cast and crew members did a phenomenal job. Cinematographer Jaipal Reddy, music director Sricharan and Aditya Music have stood as great pillars of support. I am very happy about the audience's response. Their reviews are amazing."
Parvatheesam said, "Everybody who has watched the movie is loving it. I urge them to spread positive talk. I hope the collections will only go up from the second day."
Karthik Raju said, "Making a film is a big ask these days. Releasing it is yet another big deal. Since my father is a distributor, I know the pain. The director worked hard for more than one and a half year on this project. Nobody wants to make a bad film. Everyone works towards a good product. 'OGF' has got well-etched characters. I urge everyone to write reviews a week after a film releases. Understand our anguish. Many will feel encouraged to make movies in that scenario."
Producer Padmanabha Reddy said, "It takes a lot of struggle and effort to bring a film before the audience. Artists, technicians and everyone had to give their all to 'OGF' to make it possible. I stepped forward with an offer to help when the film's release became difficult. I am the kind of person who believes in moving forward with others. 'OGF' is a patriotic movie. It explores the machinations of Pakistan in causing strife in Kashmir. The plight of Kashmiri Pandits has been shown. We gave our all to bring this movie to theatres. I would have loved to screen this movie for free to one and all but I don't have that stamina. It's everyone's duty to encourage patriotic movies like this one. The collections for the second show yesterday were more than that for the morning show. They are going up show after show."
Abburi Ravi said, "I know how hard the director worked to make the movie. The producer, Padmanabha Reddy garu, too gave his all to bring the film to the audience. I thank Aadi for accepting the role even though he has no song or glamorous episode. He is great as Arjun Pandit. Everyone has to watch this movie just for the director's effort. He came forward with a very good story and I congratulate him on this success. A film like this has to be watched only in the theatre."
