Director Bapu is hailed as the most techno savvy director from yesteryears. He did many great master pieces and more recently he cameup with critically acclaimed Natasimha Balakrishna, Nayanatara starrer ‘Sri Rama Rajyam’. The film won many awards and even was screened at many international film festivals.Many tollywood film makers expected the film to National award but to the utter dismay of all did not win the award.
But many feel one look at beautiful creations of Bapu, then many wonder whether he is just a beautiful copy cat. People cannot but appreciate his creative skills at copying from another language. True Bapu made super hits like ‘Mana Orri Pandavulu’, ‘Vamsa Vruksham’, ‘Toorpu Velle Railu’. None of the films will be forgotten by movie lovers ,however all those films are copied and inspired from tamil and kannada films. For mythological films according to scenes and situations, copies may come.
Bapu’s Sri Rama Rajyam reminds one of Vijay Bhatt’s hindi film ‘Sri Ram Rajy’ on Prakash Productions. This Prem Adib, Sahu Morak, Sobhana Samarth’s film is the only one appreciated by Mahatma Gandhi. No one need be critical of the much acclaimed Sri Rama Rajyam as one should be appreciate Bapu for reminding all of the old hindi classic liked by great Bapuji.
