Fourth Flop For Ravi Tejaa In A Row, Time For Some Career Rethink



Telugu cinema’s  ‘Masala Raja’ Ravi Teja  is serving it  bland these days. He has just delivered what looks like the  fourth  dud  at the  boxoffice  in a row.

The  film is Amar Akbar Anthony(AAA)  and the first day’s  collections  should worry any one who cares  for Ravi Teja’s career. According to  reliable boxoffice  sources AAA has amassed a meager 4 crore rupees in Andhra and  Telangana on  the first day. This is lower than what  Ravi’s last three films Raja The Great , Touch Chesi Chudu and  Nela Ticket ,all flops, had collected on the opening day.

A  major  director from Telugu cinema  explains, “While  the world has moved on  and major Telugu stars are experimenting with roles and characters Ravi Teja seems stuck in a  warp. He keeps playing up the ‘Masala Raja’ image with no concern  for changing trends.  Casting himself  in a triple  role in Amar Akbar Anthony was perilous. He is  the paying the price.”

Shoddy scripting and poor execution are the two main villains in AAA.  Above all, it is an overdose  of Ravi Teja that  has killed  his latest  project even before  it was properly born. And  to name the film after one of Amitabh Bachchan’s most iconic films(where the  Bachchan  did NOT play all the three title roles, only one) is  plainly  suicidal.
