If Sarileru Neekevvaru success isn’t useful for anyone, it would be only for Anil Ravipudi. The director has been criticized widely for his poor direction and writing skills. Right from the Pataas till Sarileru Neekevvaru, Anil Ravipudi has failed to offer something new. Thankfully, with no presence of commercial directors, Anil Ravipudi managed to find success with his movies.
But with Sarileru Neekevvaru, his skills have come under scanner. Even when directing a superstar like Mahesh, Anil Ravipudi seemed reluctant to give up some of his trademarks. Exaggerated comedy by female characters and trademark actions written for few characters in his movies have become unbearable. Pathetically, Superstar Mahesh Babu was also made to perform for such scenes.
Thankful to the season and the stamina of Mahesh Babu, Sarileru Neekevvaru has managed to perform well commerically. If Anil Ravipudi continues same format movies, it will be inevitable for him from becoming a Srinu Vytla, a V.v. Vinayak. Hoping he will come out of the box and try for something new.
