letter to Krishna Vamsi on Chakram
was a hot and sunny day, it was very sultry outside but I
was a little excited inside, why not?? I had good reason to
be so, I was going to watch krishnavamsi's latest release
I walked into the theatre with full of expectations, promising
myself a treat.
I came out of the theatre with more than a sigh of relief.
You all can guess what happened to me inside...
When I came out of the theatre I hardly remembered a scene
from movie. As the scenes came and went by, I just kept on
shift+deleting them and was hoping for the ordeal to end soon.
That night was almost peaceful except for few nightmares...courtesy
saw krishnavamsi a lot, the next few days, talking shop. He
was desperately trying to defend his movie and the values
he wanted to impart....Obviously, I didn't agree a lot with
what he was saying, so I decided to give him a piece of my
I am an ardent fan of ur films. U were different from the
ur films used to haunt me for days........ Each
of your earlier movies (not sri anjaneyam) left lasting impressions
on my mind.
what's happening with you these days? It was pain watching
your previous effort itself, Sri Anjaneyam...then I thought,
you deserved a benefit of doubt.
this time why were you trying so desperately to defend this
project even after failing in most of the aspects of film
making? This raised a doubt in my mind about your capability
to judge your future projects... Well I directed no movie....but
I see no fault in expressing myself....
here are a few points that pissed me off from your latest
thing that stands out in all ur earlier films is ur terrific
characterization. What happened to that magical touch??
koti character in Khadgam, tanikella bharani in samudram,
jagapathi babu and prakash raj in anthahpuram chandra mohan
and brahmaji in chandralekha, raviteja in sindooram are just
a few to name.
u show me anything like that or even remotely resembling characterizations
in Sri Anjaneyam and the so called Chakram??
I can't stop myself going into detail....
The worst characterization in the movie if you ask me is....Chakram,
the problem solver!!!
The way our hero cures the colony people, the quick fixes
are the worst part of the movie... I heard few giggles in
... every one with a sane mind will never
be able to understand the rationale in the way the problems
are solved. They looked so far from reality and I am so disappointed
with all the whole episodes that I don't even feel like mentioning
them and substantiate my stand.
Even the glossy "kal ho naa ho" has more meaningful
problematic circumstances and solutions but our case is a
total let down, and what the hell our hero is preaching to
jeeva?? Sir, I don't get it, does anybody in the world change
with just few words??
ah, lakshmi - I character, played by asin,
All she has done in the movie is getting impressed when chakram
says that he want to build a super specialty hospital and
then start hating him when he said he is in love with another
girl and wants to keep her as a concubine, as if she has no
pardon me if I ask, u showed her as a well educated person
and knows chakram from childhood.
Then how in the hell she could possibly behave the way she
I wonder how couldn't she use her head to figure out what's
behind his behaviour??
And on top of that, that awful song - sony, cellphone!! Oh
god, is this really your idea or what??
(by the way, whose idea is that graffiti "stick no hearts"
and "admit love", did you try to say something?
well we didn't get it)
we know somebody from childhood, we know them inside out,
we know their behavior patterns and how credible a person
they are, then how could she get carried away by the sudden
changes in his behaviour. Her character just seemed to be
programmed to respond to outside influence, and is in very
bad taste. By foul playing, he hurt her badly twice.; once
with his behavior and once with his death. It served no purpose
other than what u thought as a great twist in the tale.
u think it would have been more logical if Chakram explains
her the fact, cancels the marriage and make his death as painless
as possible. If he did the right course, it would have been
more fitting to their characterizations u showed initially.
It would have been more meaningful, had he stayed with them,
made her in charge of the building of so called super specialty
hospital and make his dreams come true.
What is this Lakshmi II character (played by Charmi)?
.What good it does if she stops studying her medicine and
start working as a pizza delivery girl??
I agree there are no petty jobs, every job is meaningful and
worth in its own right.
Is the money she earns is going to help maintain her family
I am not sure.
Did she retire as the same pizza delivery girl???
Did she continue her medicine and assisted Lakshmi I in her
We are interested to know..
I had enough with these characterizations....
I felt all the phone call blood cancer episode was very phony
(pardon my pun).
How long do you think it will take the tests to produce results?
How long do you think it will take for a doctor to call his
close friend to inform his grave situation?
What's the foreign friend doing all the while between blood
sampling and marriage day??
I am no doctor and I certainly don't know what the procedures
are for confirming blood cancer, but my mind is not accepting
all this shit. care to explain??
saw so many FUNNY movies in the recent past But I care a damn
to write anything about them. I wrote this because I believe
you are far better than what you are delivering now.
my opinion another scene that fell flat on its face is Brahmanandams
a very crucial scene, what u tried to convey in that scene
is chakram and his dad accepted the inevitable and the legacy
of chakram is passed on to his father - noble intentions,
sir, did u really think that so called comedy is good enough
to convey ur intentions? you made so many people squirm helplessly
in their seats.
agree, by the comedy tracks we have seen so far, we are programmed
to laugh at such scenes but u too resorting to such type of
comedy(?) is unbearable to all of ur fans out here. u can
do better than that.
would you be offended if we ask you about the fate of super
haven't completed yet, another one that's bothering me is
ur shots. u became repetitive... .
I saw the akela crane sweeping shot first in chandralekha
and I must say I was impressed, then I saw the same shots
in murari and now in chakram, sir, what's our crime? Are we
sentenced to akela crane sweeping shots punishment in every
one of your movies.
These days I began to hate the poor akela crane itself.
though you tried to dig out some reason linking the first
day's response to HOLI mood of the people,
the bottom line is, chakram completely failed to TRANSPORT
the audience towards what they came for - to my understanding,
entertainment, and if u don't agree with what I have said,
know mine is the easiest job - criticizing,
and urs, the toughest - trying to entertain public at large,
but believe me, I did put in my best to make this not a waste
of time, for both of us.
taking is getting better and better, no complaints there.
U can't mess it up, even if u try to.
really wrong with the film?
u ask me, u did not work enough on the story...... and we
wont agree with what u r saying on the telly. The intentions
r good, but u failed to transform them in to movie format
as was the case ins Sri Anjaneyam.
come up with something ori(vir)ginal next time.
said all this sir, u r still my fav director and I am waiting
with the same anticipation for ur next film like a child who
is about to go in to a candy store.
and we hope u realize the fact that we are only this demanding
because it is u and not somebody else.
little trivia for the reader, before we say adios,
define the characteristics of family members in krishnavamsi's
Answer: they r very affectionate, especially the father and
mother hug and kiss hero/hrn as the case may be,
r always positive,
they pamper hero/hrn
and they have undying trust in protagonists.
sir, its good to have such parents/relatives in real life
but all ur fans out here r getting bored having to see the
same characterizations time and again.
guess what?? when the santa visits me this christmas, I am
gonna ask him a new set of family characters for ur films
