Top production house Mythri Movie Makers backed a small project titled Happy Birthday. The film was directed by Ritesh Rana who directed a small film Mathu Vadalara in the past. Lavanya Tripathi, Satya, Vennela Kishore, Naresh Agastya, Gundu Sudarshan and others played the lead roles in this quirky crime thriller. Made on a strict budget, Happy Birthday released today in a limited number of screens in AP and Telangana. Happy Birthday also had an early USA premieres and the film opened on a poor note. The word of mouth is completely mixed and there is no increase in the footfalls for the later shows.
Happy Birthday is expected to end up as a dud and it would not recover anything from the theatres. The film was made on a small budget and the makers sold off the non-theatrical rights for decent prices. Kaala Bhairava scored the music and the background score is the only saviour. After a decent first half, Happy Birthday lost trace in the second half and left the audience in confusion. Cherry of Clap Entertainments produced the film and Mythri Movie Makers presented this interesting attempt which is rejected by the audience.
