In a recently held survey, it was found out that if you fail to grab the attention of your audience within the first 10 seconds of your video, the content is likely to go downhill. Well, to make someone spend their hard-earned money and travel all the way to the theatre, it takes a monumental effort to pick a person’s heed.
The makers of ‘Vrithra’ have taken it to the next level by naming their product on a word that is catchy, unique, intriguing and definitely an interest-evoking expression.
We have come across a few occasions where our Sandalwood filmmakers convinced us with their absolutely innovative titles. In the below space, we have listed down a few.
The successful movie that it turned out to be, Upendra’s title for his venture with Shivaraj Kumar was top-gear and took many by surprise. And the story that he dished out with this title, it was indeed a bold attempt.
2. Ulidavaru Kandanthe
Rakshit Shetty’s debut directorial created a sensation of sorts with its title. Based on the ‘Roshomon Effect’, the flick had content that justified the title to perfection.

Yet again, the title of a Upendra movie has made it to this list. In an era where the makers were trying hard for catchy titles, Uppi scored a blockbuster with the first letter of the English alphabet.
One of the best dark-comedies that Sandalwood has ever witnessed, ‘Thithi’ attracted us right away with its breathtaking title. Viewers did not have an idea of what to expect from a movie that has a title which was very depressing. However, Raam Reddy killed it with his execution and taking which eventually enthralled us to the core.
