Amidst huge expectations, Nivin Pauly-starrer Richie hit theatres on December 8. The movie, directed by Gautham Ramachandran, is a remake of Kannada superhit Ulidavaru Kandanthe. Being the first straight Tamil film of Premam star Nivin Pauly, there were a lot of expectations of Richie. But the movie has opened to a mixed response from audience and critics, alike.

Actor-director Rakshit Shetty, the man behind the Kannada original Ulidavaru Kandanthe, recently watched Richie, and was all praises for the team. ‘No other actor would have reprised the protagonist role better than Nivin Pauly’, Rakshit tweeted. He added that he enjoyed watching Gautham Ramachandran’s ‘perspective’ of Ulidavaru Kandanthe.

The actor took to his Twitter handle to express the same. Rakshit’s tweets come at a time when there are discussions going on social media comparing the two films – Ulidavaru Kandanthe and Richie.
