Koratala Siva mastered the act of blending social message with commercial elements. The star director scored not one, not two, but four consecutive blockbusters and proved that he is a director who knows the pulse of the audience.
The interesting news is that Siva’s latest movie, Bharath Ane Nenu released amidst humongous expectations and had a lot riding on it. The movie opened to a positive word of mouth but failing to set the ticket counters on fire. The makers have arranged various promotional campaigns after the release and Mahesh himself stepped out to pull crowds for this political drama.
The interesting part is that the makers have released a few uncut scenes from the movie. Everyone who watched these clips is feeling that Mahesh gave his very best to the movie and these sequences should have been included in the final cut. Moreover, Koratala Siva could have trimmed out the initial character establishment sequences and laced in the emotional episodes that bring a lot of depth to the proceedings.
It needs to be said that Koratala Siva missed a golden opportunity to add even more impact to BAN.
