Telugu film industry is trending on new paths of late. Regular commercial films with formulaic action are no more respected by audience. Though, it might take little more time to completely come out of this toxic masala trend but the message is loud, clear as young stars like Ramcharan (Dhruva), Junior NTR (Nannaku Prematho) and Naga Chaitanya (Premam, SSS) are promoting new age ideologies.
At this juncture, bang re-entry of Chiranjeevi for 150th flick with a commercially sugar coated social message film ‘Khaidi No 150’ shocked many. Everyone knows what VV Vinayak is capable of and how cautious he will be while dealing star heroes by following a formulaic, well measured, rotten composition.
Apparently, ‘Khaidi No 150’ first look succeeded in portraying Chiranjeevi with younger, leaner look but concept behind the film is nowhere scripted in these posters. Agreed that, first look is just meant to please the Fans and they achieved what they wanted to.
In contrast, ‘Gauthami Puthra Satakarni’ Diwali poster had an inherent scope to showcase Balayya in a warrior look in sync with substantial essence in script. Content wise, GPS posters had the mark of director Krish felt in it.
Finally, Chiru made an attempt to awake his defunct Fan base with ‘Khaidi No 150’ first look while Balayya struck to his craving for experimentation with a sword wielding warrior getup in ‘Satakarni’ Diwali wishes poster.
