Wondering why times are missing?

Who's up for a three-hour action comedy (with singing, of course) out of India's insanely prolific Andhra Pradesh province? I'll try to explain as best I can. See, there's this popular politician (Prakash Raj) who gets attacked and left for dead by his rivals. Only he's not dead. He's in a coma. Meanwhile, his son (Bollywood—or Tollywood, to be precise—idol "Prince" Mahesh Babu) grows up to be a studly cop. Years later, dad wakes up from his coma and the two go after some evil mob boss. It's way more complicated than that, involving love affairs, dance breaks and a trip to Turkey. But those are the basics. This marks the largest opening ever for a Telugu film. 170 minutes
