Being the immediate film of Prabhas after the huge Baahubali series, the expectations on Saaho have been skyrocketed. As the film was made with a massive budget of Rs. 350 crores, the comparisons have been started immediately and everyone felt that it would give a tough competition to Baahubali.
But forget about Baahubali, but Saaho is nowhere near to a normal hit film too. The over hype, lack of a standard story, and cliched screenplay, killed Saaho.
One film old director Sujeeth, taking up a huge budgeted film, that too experimenting on a huge star like Prabhas is nothing but stupidity. There is no clarity on how Sujeeth is going to make the film, but everyone was in awe of the project, due to the Baahubali impact on Prabhas.
When the film has a huge budget, even the country’s biggest super star like Rajinikanth, kept his stardom aside for Robo and 2.0 and gave more importance to the script. But Saaho is completely dependent on Prabhas stardom.
The elevation episodes for the hero may go well with his fans, but the normal cinema lovers expect the content and nothing else. Ignoring this simple logic and investing so many hundreds of crores on Saaho has turned out to be a nightmare for the producers now. Hope Prabhas realizes his mistake and take up a small film as his next, to kill the over expectations on him.
