Two Super Hits, But No Break For Director

Fortunately, few directors are able to get film after film even though their previous films are disasters. And there are those who delivered a blockbuster but still waiting for a hero or heroine to okay their storyline.

Despite delivering duds like Kesava and LIE, both the directors Sudheer Varma and Hanu Raghavapudi respectively are working with Sharwanand in their next. But surprisingly, a director who has delivered first hit of the year through Anushka’s Bhagamathie is yet to grab an offer. Yes, he’s none other than director turned choreographer Ashok.

Though Ashok’s debut film Pilla Zamindar with Nani is also a super hit, the director took years to get a project moving. After a lot of delays, finally, Bhaagamathie released and compensated the lack of entertainment at box office early this year. And then, there are no takers yet for Ashok and his scripts though he narrated some stories already to a few star heroes.

They say that Ashok lacks the narrative skills the likes of Vamsi Vakkantam and Hanu Raghavapudi are having. If one could impress with the narration, star heroes will do films no matter even if the story is hollow. Maybe Ashok should correct that aspect.
