Well known and most respected Choreographer of Indian dance circuit is Shiva Shankar Master who was bestowed with National Award for ‘Magadheera’ is going through an image damage process. Yes, it is by the sake of ‘Nagavalli’ and the reason being very badly choreographed dance movements on Anushka who has severely upset the skillful classical dancers after examining the sequences in this movie.
Although Kamalini offered a feel of respite in the very first song, the intensity in the dances of Anushka was totally faded down, an opinion shared by one of the choreographer. When the same combo of Shiva Shankar and Anushka worked their magic in ‘Arundhathi,’ in this case they were declared a scar for entire movie. Whether it was the lack of concentration of P. Vasu or Shiva Shankar Master or Anushka? A tough question only they three can answer.
