Sukumar's latest is titled Darsakudu as is already known. He says it is an ode to directors of yesteryears till directors recently.
Now, he has gone a step ahead and released a poster of the film, well, to create a buzz. And buzz the poster did create as he has missed out on some popular names of Telugu cinema.
Instead, the poster carries pictures of some Tamil directors. Now, one does not have a problem with Tamil directors, but Sukumar has missed out on some real big names who made a big mark on Telugu cinema.
LV Prasad, KV Reddy, Bapu, Raghavendra Rao, Dasari Narayana Rao, Kodanda Rami Reddy are among those on the poster alongside Tamil directors.
But he missed out on some really big names like Adurti Subba Rao who made his name in social commercial cinema, Vittalacharya who is known for his folksy socio-fantasy films, director KS Prakasa Rao who was a pro in remaking novels into films like Prem Nagar and Ramachandra Rao who made some big budget films like Alluri Seetarama Raju, Devudu Chesina Manushulu among others.
They don’t find a place in the list and one is left wondering if Sukumar is unaware of them or if he missed out on them. But surely he has kick-started a buzz with the poster.
