Sujeeth :”The Audience Is Loving Saaho”



Saaho director Sujeeth  is  in a daze.  While Saaho his  2-year labour  of love, has opened to packed  houses across the country,  critics in one  voice have savaged the film.

“I don’t read reviews.And I don’t know what to say about the criticism. Everyone has a right to an  opinion. Prabhas Sir and I  worked  very hard to make this a  complete entertainer.It is a different cinema from what we are used  to .The  stunts and  the  imaging  are  not familiar to our audience.Maybe that’s why Saaho is being criticized.As long as  the audience is  loving Saaho I’ve nothing  to fear.The producers have put a great deal  of faith in me. I don’t the producers,  Prabhas Sir and my mother to feel let down.”

 Right now Sujeeth has no time to  process  or comprehend  the criticism.

He doesn’t know  how to handle the  comparisons  with S  S Rajamouli  and Baahubali

“The  only  thing in common between us is Prabhas Sir. Otherwise Rajamouli is is UP THERE where I can’t even see properly,” says Sujeeth nervous  about   the damage  the Baahubali comparisons can do to  Saaho .

Saaho is  not Baahubali by any stretch  of  the imagination. In fact  that’s what Prabhas Sir wanted,a complete departure from what he had done  in Baahubali. He can’t keep  doing Baahubali over and  over again,” says Sujeeth.

Sujeeth  says he can’t dream of  comparing himself with Rajamouli. “Except for  the fact that  like him, I’d also like to make a  big film and then a smaller one . One can’t be doing the  big widescreen spectacle uninterrupted. It will wear out the  filmmaker.”

What about  future plans?

Sujeeth says he can’t think beyond Saaho. “Right now all I want is for Saaho to be  out and to know the public’s verdict. Too much depends on the film’s success.I don’t know what  I’ll do next. But it will not be something on the scale  of  Saaho.”

This is where Sujeeth would like  to be like Rajamouli. “Raja Sir makes one  very big film and then  a relatively  small one. I’d like to follow that model. But right now I am too inexperienced to make policy decisions on  my career.”
