After 2010 hit Brindavanam, it took until 2013’s Baadshah for Jr NTR to score a hit. In between he has done flicks like Shakti, Oosaravelli and Dammu that sank at box office without any trace. All the plans tumbled again, when he thought of delivering back to back blockbusters after Baadshah. Harish Shankar directed Ramayya Vastavaya flopped big time, pushing Jr NTR into huge tension. And then he started working on ‘Rabhasa’ being directed by Santosh Srinivas, and there are Puri’s ‘Kummesta’ and Sukumar’s action-love story are on cards.
It just takes one two big blockbuster movies in a row for Jr NTR to get back into the big league of lists that are dominated by Pawan, Charan, Mahesh and Bunny. His directors should literally be catalysts in delivering such a big chain-reaction for Junior to rise like a phoenix on silver screen. Is Srinivas capable of that? Will Puri work wonders for him? Could we believe in Sukumar’s intelligent stories? Only time will decide!
