Sentiment rules the roost in Tollywood
Sentiments overrule everything else in the multi-crore Telugu film industry. The debut director Meher Ramesh is pretty confident that his film Kantri would be a runaway hit. His sentimental argument is that the films of NTR with debut directors were hits.
VV Vinayak became a successful director with his debut film Aadhi and SS Rajamouli gave a hit with his debut film Student No. 1. However, Meher Ramesh should remember that Naa Alludu , the debut film of Mullapudi Vara, was a super flop.
The industry buzz is that Meher Ramesh tried very hard to present NTR in a different angle to please the star’s fans. The fights and songs picturisation are said to be very watchable. As Kantri is due for release on 9th of this month, we will know soon whether sentiments work or not.
