Marlon Brando the Vito Corleone Must be Rolling over in his Grave.May 02, 2020 07:27 AM
After reading the article, ‘Jagan's Story Has The Depth Of God Father,' I was indeed shocked. The statement was astonishing by filmmaker Mahi V Raghav who perhaps could have done a better job in portraying the life of Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy.
Now that he couldn’t do justice to Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy biopic he should be careful and stop making such callous statements. Don’t raise the stakes that you might have to chase the North Star. Pick up a dictionary and read the meaning of Humility. Such bombastic statements wouldn’t rescue if in case the sequel Yatra two turn into a disaster. The OTT platform which Mahi is endorsing seems like insurance if there is a series of flops in his career. Even Netflix viewers are choosey and they look for good content.
Mahi states that Jangan’s story has heroism, ordeals, pain, admiration and success. Hence there is plenty of masala for a Tollywood flick. Maybe there are enough takers for these traits in the Telugu land but the audacity to compare his life with God Father is preposterous. In fact, a fiction like God Father would look more realistic than Yatra 2 biopic on Jagan Mohan Reddy. Besides all the traits that Mahi stated is found in a more realistic depiction of the Gangster Vadarajan in movie Nayakan played by Kamal Hassan. The brilliant portrayal of Amitabh Bachchan as Bal Thackeray in the movie Sarkar was amazing, in fact, the character Subhash Nagre showed heroism, ordeals, pain, admiration and success.
Jagan is still a rookie in Politics, and God Father is a classic in the gangster genre. Where is the comparison?
Ponder over while listening to God Father Theme song.
