As we gear up for the release of Vrithra, here are 10 occasions Sandalwood filmmakers convinced us with their innovative titles

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.

1. Om

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.
