About Sarrainodu Movie:

Sarrainodu is a Telugu vigilante action film written and directed by Boyapati Srinu and produced by Allu Aravind’s Geetha Arts. The film stars Allu Arjun, Aadhi Pinisetty, Rakul Preet Singh, Catherine Tresa and Srikanth in the lead roles, while Brahmanandam, Sai Kumar, Jayaprakash, Pradeep Rawat, Suman, and Adarsh Balakrishna in supporting roles.

Boyapati Srinu wrote the script with Allu Arjun in mind for the lead. He wanted to cast Samantha Ruth Prabhu who acted with Arjun in S/O Satyamurthy (2015), but it did not happen. Rakul Preet Singh leading role and Catherine Tresa supporting role. It is Singh’s first collaboration with Arjun and Tresa’s third collaboration with him after Iddarammayilatho (2013) and Rudhramadevi (2015).

Sarrainodu was released on 22 April 2016 and received mixed reviews from critics who praised Arjun and Aadhi’s performances, action sequences, cinematography and music, but criticized its screenwriting and characterizations. It was a Blockbuster at the box office and became the 2nd highest-grossing Telugu film of 2016 after Janatha Garage.

It was subsequently dubbed into Malayalam as Yodhavu and was released in Kerala a month after the original version. The core plot was reported to be loosely based on the 2004 film Walking Tall.

The film was later dubbed in Hindi and released on YouTube by Goldmines Telefilms on 28 May 2017. Currently, the Hindi dubbed version of the movie holds over 400+ million views on YouTube.
