Director Prasanth Varma brings 'Hanu-Man,' a superhero action-adventure, to the screen with Teja Sajja leading the cast in this pan-Indian cinematic endeavor. Embracing the Sankranti race, the team exudes confidence, claiming their film possesses all the elements to captivate family audiences and transport them to a new cinematic realm. Despite their optimism, experts identify a few flaws in their strategy.

Scheduled for release on January 12, 'Hanu-Man' faces competition from 'Guntur Karam.' While Mahesh Babu's film remains unaffected, the challenge lies in securing sufficient theaters for Teja Sajja's venture, especially in B & C centers dominated by mass heroes. The clash intensifies as 'Guntur Karam' gains favor due to screen allocation difficulties.

In the midst of visual effects, the film contends with impeccable timing, challenged by the simultaneous release of noteworthy films like 'Saindhav,' 'Eagle,' and 'Naa Sami Ranga' alongside Mahesh's production.

Controversy surrounds the attempts by 'Guntur Kaaram,' 'Naa Saami Ranga,' 'Eagle,' and 'Saindhav' makers to sideline 'Hanu-Man' from the Sankranti race. Dil Raju's significant influence on theaters, exceeding 80%, creates a formidable obstacle for 'Hanu-Man' in Hyderabad and Nizam regions, despite Mythri's backing.

Director Prashanth Varma acknowledges the pressure to postpone the release but stands firm, citing the pan-Indian nature of the film and its alignment with the grand opening of the Lord Ram Temple in Ayodhya. The spotlight now shifts to the box office performance of 'Hanu-Man.'

Featuring Teja Sajja as the hero, Amrita Aiyer as the heroine, and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in a pivotal role, the film, produced by K Niranjan Reddy, boasts a multilingual release in Telugu, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, and Japanese languages, earning a U/A certification from the censor board. Prasanth Varma emphasizes that 'Hanu-Man' was the first to claim the Sankranti release date and remains resolute in maintaining that position.
