Heroes like Rajinikanth and Pawan Kalyan can show the storm to the box office, when their movies highlights the mannerisms, more than the subject. Several movies in the past has proved this logic.
For instance, Gabbar Singh plot was taken from Salman Khan’s Dabangg, but the remake version is nowhere compared to the main movie. The strategical changes, director Harish Shankar did to the film, were lauded by Pawan Kalyan fans all over, making the movie, a blockbuster.
This happened because, Harish Shankar, being a hardcore fan of Pawan, wrote the screenplay from the fan’s point of view. Hand on the neck, the popular mannerism of the Power Star, was used for several times in Gabbar Singh and the walking style in the exhibition scene, after countering the baddie, is another thumbs up, which added up to the success of the film.
All these logics were missed in Panja, as the Tamil director Vishnu Vardhan is unaware of the star’s craze, here in Telugu. So at this point of time, where Pawan Kalyan has acquired a huge stardom, other than fans of the actor, none would be managing to present Pawan, better.
However, though director Bobby is a fan of the Power Star, Sardaar Gabbar Singh disappointed, as it is to be noted that, it is Pawan Kalyan who wrote the screenplay and story, for the film, but not Bobby.
Currently, Pawan has okayed to act under SJ Surya’s direction. But being a Tamil director, that too who earlier gave a disaster like Komaram Puli to the actor, Pawan fans are worried about the project. It should be seen, it gives the shock of life to the fans or surprise with a huge blockbuster.
