Eddie Murphy’s “Coming to America” was remade in both Tamil (“My Dear Maarthaandaa”) and in Telugu as “Raaja Vikramaarka”. The movie failed at the box-office despite superb comedy by Sudhakar and the masala duo Rao Gopala Rao and Allu Ramalingaiah. Casting Amala with Chiru was a big mistake and Radhika (mimicking Tina Turner) was irksome to watch. The action sequence with Manik Iraani is one of the best in Chiranjeevi’s career. Raj-Koti‘s music also was not upto their mark compared with their earlier works for Chiranjeevi’s film.
