Dhananjay’s 25th film ‘Gurudev Hoysala’ which was released on the 30th of March across Karnataka is now being streamed in Amazon Prime within one month of the theatrical release.
Though ‘Gurudev Hoysala’ got a good opening, it was an average at the box-office. Performances of Dhananjay, Naveen Shankar and Prathap Narayan were much appreciated by audience as well as the critics. Even though the content of the film was good, the pace and other various other reasons made it an average fare.
In spite of that, the producers were quite safe as they had sold the satellite and digital rights of the film much before its release. They even gifted Dhananjay a Toyota Vellfire car worth more than one crore.
