Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu
With Power comes Responsibility.
I am a big fan of Pawan Kalyan, I like him for his sincerity, his infectious mannerism, his honest approach towards his profession and I relate with him with his frustration when his films does not live up to the expectation. Not only me, but several fans of Pawan Kalyan (they are Millions) who throng to theatres first day irrespective of his last film performance at Box Office praying to God that this film should succeed, it is a similar experience like watching Sachin Tendulkar play. You want him to perform, succeed and win laurels as in their success is our satisfaction.
I do not blame pawan kalyan, he trusts the director, the script but what translate on the screen he has no control. Camerman Ganga tho Rambabu is a perfect plot for Pawan Kalyan to display his talent but Puri Jaganath is a man in a hurry. He has no time to flesh out the character, to develop nuances, to go to into the details as hit or flop it is not making difference to his life, his life goes on but for fans of Pawan kalyan one more opportunity missed, The entire film looks like a rush job, you can feel the actors just coming to sets and just deliver dialogue, there is no time to get into the skin of the character, they appear lost, there are so many scenes where Pawan kalyan looks confused, not sure of himself and totally lost. The film is mostly indoors, all the songs are shot on the sets, (there is no time to go outdoor I presume) . Puri Jaganath fails in several Departments, he had talent and resource at his disposal but his lethargy shows. His approach towards film making has become very inconsistent, he knows that out of dozens films he makes one will succeed and that one will make him available In the market and make him create wealth for himself irrespective of others losing their wealth especially the distributors, exhibitors, sometime the producers, and the actors who trust him may make wealth but loose their credibility.
Puri has a decent plot which has potential to become a block buster, whenever a superhero does a message oriented movie it has to arouse the interest of the commoner, motivate him, inspire him and raise a comfort level that I am with you. Recent example Amir Khan TV show, His honest approach and his treatment towards evil practices/causes in society awakened all strata of society including Government, NGO etc. and made the common man thinking and the Government sit up and take decisions.
If you start diagnosing about the film you can write pages and pages about what went wrong and what might would have been done, but the damage is already done, The Collections are slipping, the distributors/theatres may loose their money, the only saving grace is Damrukam not releasing as schedule, it would have made a dent in CGR collections.
As a fan of Pawan Kalyan I wait again for his next film and hope the directors will use his talent to the maximum and make us happy and the line they should always remember “ with power comes responsibility.”
