Chakri Toleti is working hard to show his creative talent on silver screen so that he can stun movie lovers with his taking. He tried his best directing one other than Lokanayakudu Kamal Hasan in ‘Eenaadu’ which is a remake of Naseeruddin Shah’s ‘Wednesday’. However the film failed to catch the imagination of South Indian movie lovers though the original was a run away hit. Similar is the case of Thala Ajith starrer ‘David Billa’. The film is a sequel for Ajith’s ‘Billa’ directed by Vishnuvardhan. While the original was a runaway hit, the second bombed at the box office.
Film critics feel that Chakri is getting inspired from Hollywood flicks and is trying to imitate them to the core rather than think innovatively. Some others started commenting that he is just taking his films like the child photographer in ‘Sagarasangamam’. This Viswanath’s classic has a child photographer who takes snaps of Kamal’s dancing stills, only to shock Kamal as everything used to be visible except him. Incidentally Chakri was the child photographer in the film.
Chaktri is leaving no stone unturned to score a terrific hit in tollywood and film nagar sources inform that he met many heroes with his new project. Buzz is he even met Nagarjuna who is known to encourage creative talent. It has to be seen whether Nag gives Chakri the green signal and offer him a new lease of life.
