Puri Jagannath’s ‘Cameraman Gangato Rambabu’ starring Pawan Kalyan and Tamanna plunged into unwanted controversy after the first day of screening. The film got average talk with film critics giving thumbsdown to the film for the substandard direction and screenplay except for few powerful dialogues. However from the very next day it all started with TDP burning the flexies of the film in Kurnool alleging that the film makers mocked their leader Chandra Babu Naidu. The moment it was subduing telangana parties started attacking theaters and film makers offices alleging that the film hurt their sentiments.

A close look at how the attacks erupted, one gets the feeling that all this was due to some rumors and analysis by various websites of the film. Most of the websites wrote reviews in similar manner that it was below avg film but for Pawan’s action and Puri’s punches. In some sites they wrote that the film’s characters resembled that of rivalry between YS.Rajasekhar Reddy and Chandra Babu Naidu, relating negative roles in the film Chandra Sekhar Reddy and opposition leader twice CM, trying to make his son Rana Babu CM. However they got all wrong as they tried relating CBN to that of both the villain characters Kota and Prakash Raj. So the dispute died down.

However one doesn’t know who lit the telangana feelings but some sites surely must have done or otherwise no one would have even thought about the film. So media should report in a responsible manner rather than cook some rumors which results in huge losses to all.
