No one will say Aravinda Sametha is a bad film but truth be told, the movie is not a blockbuster and interest is waning by the day as audience can no longer relate to the genre of the film rooted in factionism.
When films related to factionism did well beginning with Premichukundam Raa followed by smash hits like Samarasimha Reddy and Indra, it was because factionism was still existent then. But today, Rayalaseema is by and large free of this curse.
Therefore, making another faction film will no longer appeal to the current WhatsApp generation who prefer urban lifestyles, lip-locks and steamy scenes thanks to the influence of Bollywood and You Tube.
Trivikram executed the film well but the genre is not something that audiences are interested in anymore.
People react disgustedly to news of murders and barbaric killings in society today and absolutely look down upon such acts.
Today, everyone is a materialist to the core and even the bygone factionists, those who survived are probably busy checking their WhatsApp messages and trying for credit cards, personal and home loans.
Aravinda Sametha shows that films should be something audiences can relate to, that the choice of genre is probably something as equally important as execution.
