This Raja, it is going to rain films across all theatres of the State with as many as five big-budget Odia films slated for release.  The audiences will have a tough time taking their pick as big stars of Ollywood compete with each other to woo them to the theatres. Interestingly, two of the films are home productions for the lead actors, Anubhav’s Haatha Dhari Chalu Tha and Arindam’s Ashok Samrat. While Anubhav, the recently-turned politician has already produced a couple of movies before, for Arindam, it is the debut film as producer.                                               --
