2016 Roundup: Director of The Year

There are many directors that have delivered big hits and some memorable little gems in 2016.

Sukumar came up with an intelligent revenge drama like Nannaku Prematho and Koratala Siva has lived up to humongous expectations of the trade and fans with Janatha Garage.

Vamsi Paidipalli did a marvelous job with Oopiri, which is easily one of the best films of the year. The way Vamsi adapted a French classic like The Intouchables to suit to our sensibilities is commendable.

Chandrasekhar Yeleti proved his worth again with a memorable Manamantha. Though the film couldn’t perform at the box office, it will be remembered as one of the well made films of the year.  

Young directors Ravikanth Perepu and Tharun Bhaskar delivered surprise hits with Kshanam and Pelli Chupulu respectively and there are a few more directors who have thoroughly entertained us with their work. But the director of the year title should go to Trivikram for delivering one of the best family entertainers of the year with A Aa.

Buyers blindly believed in Trivikram’s brand and bought the distribution rights of A Aa for very high price tags.

In spite of not having a big star in the lead role, Trivikram weaved his magic with A Aa that went on to become one of the biggest hits of the year. It is the highest grossing Telugu film of the year in overseas beating all other star studded films.

It is not easy for any director to live up to the gargantuan expectations without the help of a big star. Trivikram did it in style with a simple family drama thus taking his brand power to another level.
