RGV strategy to kick up row in Telangana!

RGV strategy to kick up row in Telangana!

When a director like Ram Gopal Varma makes any film, particularly if it is a political film, one cannot expect it to be away from controversies.

Because, Varma thinks only such controversies will fetch publicity to his film, though it is a different matter that such cheap publicities will hardly bring audiences to the theatres and make his film a hit at the box office.

So, his upcoming film – Vyuham (strategy), based on the political life of YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, is also not above any such controversies.

He is definitely going to depict the characters of opposition leaders like Telugu Desam Party supremo N Chandrababu Naidu and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan in a cheap way, kicking up protests from the rival camp.

But what is going to kick up a big controversy is a scene in Lok Sabha, where there would be a heated debate on the bifurcation of combined Andhra Pradesh. The scene was crisply shown in the second teaser of the film released on Tuesday.

The scene shows the Jagan character angrily protesting the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and Sonia Gandhi character seriously splitting a Chapathi into two pieces.

According to a film critic, this scene has been incorporated obviously to kick up a controversy in Telangana.

It is a known fact that Sonia Gandhi had taken the risky decision of dividing Andhra Pradesh to form Telangana state, keeping in mind the sentiments of millions of people in the region and the intensity of the movement for separate state.

“By comparing the bifurcation of the combined state with a chapathi, Varma will definitely be stirring a hornet’s nest. Maybe, he thought it would fetch a huge mileage to Jagan in Andhra as he opposed the bifurcation, but in Telangana, it would send negative signals for the film,” the critic said.

If at all Varma’s film fetches any political mileage, it might for Jagan in Andhra, but in Telangana, it would have to help the Congress rather than the BRS!
