Vikrant Rona advance booking opens in single-screens with more 2D than 3D options
Vikrant Rona was not shot in 3D, but converted to really capture the beauty of the sets

One of the biggest talking points of Kannada superstar Kiccha Sudeep’s release this week, Vikrant Rona, is that it is coming to theatres in 3D. The film was not shot in 3D, but painstakingly converted over the last several months. The team has been going to town about this, as well as the sheer number of VFX shots and yet, when advance booking opened for the Karnataka region, the film seems to be getting more 2D outings than 3D in single-screen halls. What’s baffling is that theatres that are equipped for 3D screening, like, for example Urvashi, Swagath Shankar Nag, Cauvery, Mukunda among many others have the 2D-version of the film. Swagath Shankar Nag, strangely enough has four shows in 2D and two in 3D. Also, while advance booking has opened in 2D in 33 centres, 3D is only 17 so far. Multiplexes are yet to open booking, so, obviously this count will change, but still, what is going on?

The team had also claimed that they had tied up with CineDubs to allow audiences to watch the film in the language of their choice, provided they download the app, allow the app to sync to the theatre they are at and then play the audio track they want on a pair of headphones. All audio tracks would be available in 5.1 Dolby, they had said. The big question on everyone’s mind, of course, is how feasible this is actually going to be.

Vikrant Rona is Sudeep’s first collaboration with Rangitaranga and Rajaratha maker Anup Bhandari. The film was shot at specially-created sets at a studio in Hyderabad, with a few minor portions set in Kerala. The film revolves around the mysterious disappearance of people in a village, which coincides with the arrival of a police officer, Vikrant Rona. The fantasy-action-drama is rumoured to have a Rangitaranga connect, although it is set in a time period before the events of that film. Vikrant Rona has been produced by Manjunath and Shalini Gowda for Shalini Artss, and co-produced by Alankar Pandian of Invenio Origin.
