Expectations are good for a film but sometimes when there are huge expectations they impact the film. If the film is slightly below the expectations, this affects it. There are instances when films released without expectations were successful. Mahanati falls into this category.
Till this film was released there were no expectations. But when the film hit the screens people were awe struck. NTR Kathanayakudu released on Sankranti had huge expectations from the beginning. Lack of subject and emotions not working out proved to be its undoing. Now we have to see how Mahanayakudu will be received. Audiences have no expectations from this film.
Another biopic in Tollywood is all set to be released. It is Yatra made on the life of YS Rajasekhara Reddy. There are no big expectations from the film. This is because YSR was not from film industry and hence the glamour touch is missing. That too this film is made in the backdrop of YSR’s padyatra. That’s why there is no buzz about the film. However, director Mahi V Raghav made this movie with a conviction. He says that if people don’t see it as YSR movie but an ordinary film they will like it. Malayalam actor Mammotty has played the role of Rajasekhar Reddy.
