In recent times Telugu writers in the film industry are not playing the second fiddle to directors, many of them are turning as filmmakers by wielding the megaphone. Industry analysts are in dilemma to express their exact opinion on writers turning directors is correct or not. They go that it’s not a good idea but some success stories of top writers turned directors are making them change their opinion. At the same time, some failures stories of top writers who failed as directors are making the analyst stick to their decision.
Success stories of Trivikram Srinivas, Sukumar, Koratala Sivam etc., inspired many writers like Posani Krishna Murali, Veeru Potla, Kona Venkat and others to take the plunge into filmmaking. But unfortunately, Posani Krishna Murali, Veeru Potla, Kona Venkat who tested their luck as a director are failed to prove themselves as director.
Now, one more ace writer Vakkantham Vamsi who turned as a director with the recent release ‘Naa Peru Surya’ has joined in the list of successful writers who failed as directors. Vakkantham Vamsi longtime dream of turning as a director is full filled with Allu Arjun’s ‘Naa Peru Surya’ but the mission was failed miserably at the box office with mixed talk. The current situation of Vakkantham Vamsi is ‘Operation Success but Patience Dead’.
‘Naa Peru Surya’ is running with mixed talk and collections are also not up to the mark. But makers of ‘Naa Peru Surya’ are still trying to create hype on the film with its promotions. Let us wait and see will producers promotions of the NPS help the writer turned director Vakkantham Vamsi to get above average mark for his debut film or not!!!
