Within a week of its release, Vijay Deverakonda’s “Liger” is rapidly exiting cinemas. This much awaited film received harsh reviews from both critics and audiences. “Liger,” a movie by Puri Jagannadh, has received criticism for its poor screenplay and execution. It has received heavy criticism from both his own and Vijay fans for his unnecessary use of boxing legend Mike Tyson in this film, which further degraded the production and appeared to be disrespectful to Tyson and his legacy.
Mike Tyson made his acting debut in Indian cinema with this movie. We’re not sure how Puri Jagannadh and his crew persuaded Mike Tyson to accept a role in “Liger,” but in the end, not even the legendary boxer was able to save the movie. Instead, the movie is now being used as fodder for social media trolls and memes.
The much anticipated film is currently having trouble at the box office because of the poor content. It appears to be resulting in significant losses for its distributors. The producers are also considering finding a way to compensate for the losses for distributors and exhibitors.
According to reports, Mike Tyson received a staggering 23 crore for his part in “Liger.” Vijay Devekonda fans and the general audience now believe it was a massive waste of money. The film may not even touch the 50 crore mark in its lifespan.
