Kannada superstar Vishnuvardhan's 200th and last film Aptha Rakshaka stormed the box office ever since its release. The film released in nearly 120 screens across Karnataka. The film has grossed nearly Rs. 5 crores in just four days of its release. The film's gross is more than Rs. 40 crores net in 100 days. Aptha Rakshaka replaced Mungaru Male, which was the highest grosser in Sandalwood so far.
Aptha Rakshaka, the sequel of Apthamitra (which was remade in Tamil as Chandramukhi with superstar Rajinikanth in the lead), is directed by P. Vasu and Gurukiran has scored the music. Coincidentally, Soundarya who starred in Apthamitra, passed away in a plane crash a few days before its release in 2004 and now, Vishnuvardhan passed away before the release of the sequel.
In short, Aaptharakshaka reminds you of the great talent that the Kannada industry has lost in Vishnuvardhan. This one is a must watch.
