The entire Telugu Film Industry waited for this Sankranthi as two big films clashed horns against each other. One is directed by the top director Trivikram Srinivas and the other is young sensation Anil Ravipudi.
Though Trivikram gained the upper hand eventually, there are some flaws in his movie. Anil Ravipudi has shown what he is capable of with Sarileru Neekevvaru though it got divided talk among the audience.
People who rush to theatres on the festive season anticipate entertainment in the movies especially few rib-tickling comedy tracks.
Anil Ravipudi is considered as a grandmaster in this genre after Srinu Vaitla. To be frank, the comedy in Sarileru is not up to his mark. Most importantly the ‘train comedy’ segment irked some.
Another hype giving factor before the release is the second innings of Bandla Ganesh as a comedian. Bandla Ganesh featured the role of a thief for 15 minutes and his character is unbearable to watch on screen.
On the other side, Trivikram’s Ala Vaikuntapuram Lo is guided by Bunny in each and every aspect. Sunil is a top comedian in the past and the combination of Sunil and Trivikram will have some expectations in the audience.
But, Trivikram didn’t give any scope to Sunil’s character except to dance for Chiru’s song along with Bunny. “Sunil’s character in this movie is strictly is an editing error,” is what fans say.
So, these two directors should give notable roles to their artists for the sake of their films without leaving them as laughing stocks on screen.
