Mythri Movie Makers created a name of its own in no time. In a short span of time, the production house has earned the image that it would produce only entertaining commercial movies with solid scripts.
The banner’s reputation took a beating with the release of “Savyasachi” that had incoherent script.
Given their track record, no one is blaming the producers. They have put in huge money and gave the required support to the director.
In fact, they spoiled the director by giving him too much money, feel some industry insiders. Of course, this is also an alarm for the the producers to be alert for their next productions as leniency will cost dearly.
On the other hand, director Chandoo Mondeti who has been claiming that he has many scripts on hand and has some great ideas, is now said to be feeling guilty.
All are pointing figures towards him for this mess, as it didn't work in favour of Mythri, neither did it help Naga Chaitanya to have a decent action hit. The director could not handle the concept, despite big money being given to him.
Naturally, producers are now doubting his skills. Chandu Mondeti got appreciation for his first film “Karthikeya” as the thriller was well-handled.
His second film “Premam” was a Malayalam remake, but it was well-received by the audiences. Though some critics felt that the film was much better in Malayalam, Premam was a hit in both Chandu Mondeti and Naga Chaitanya's careers.
There was talk that he had simply copy-pasted scenes from the original, so many attribute the success to the Malayalam content.
Technically speaking, “Savyasachi” is his real second film and it was a test for his skills, but he failed totally.
