A Genuine Attempt to Show The Realities of Cinema
30 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

After Neninthe comes Katha Screenplay Darsakatvam.

Ram Gopal Varma, who comes up with interesting screenplays, fails to project his thoughts with this movie. This is a double edge sword because he is showing the process it takes to make a film and how his "actual" ideas may never reach the screen.

The director describes how tough it is to get a break in the film industry and huge compromises must be made in order to make a dream come true. Each step of the way the writer/director has to bend to other people's thoughts and make sacrifices in order to make his dream come true.

Sunil is really talented. He tried a different role as opposed to what he is known for. The rest of the cast were wonderful. Songs, editing, cinematography were good. However, the film had an overall "bored" feeling to it.

In conclusion, RGV reminds us, making films is a risky business and as more people are involved there is more pressure to make it successful.
