Skanda’s OTT release also draws mixed response
The movie was released in theatres on September 28, 2023, but opened to mixed reviews and ended as an average fare in its thea trical run. Post its OTT release, a section of the audience has been trolling the film for its over-the-top action sequences and the others, who skipped the film in theatres, have posted that they didn’t feel Skanda was a bad film.
Ram worked hard for his character in Skanda by gaining 11 kg to look the part. His fights and dances in this commercial drama were loved by the audience. Yet another attraction of Skanda was Ram pairing up with Sreeleela for the first time. The lead pair shared good chemistry and were loved by the masses in all the songs. Thaman had composed the music for this film.
