Anil Ravipudi has made it a point that he keeps his success track intact with Sarilerilu Neekevvaru film. He managed to write decent hero elevation episodes for Mahesh Babu.
Also, he managed to convince Mahesh to dance in the film like never before and he even made sure that a well-known star like Vijayashanthi, makes a comeback in his film.
For F2, he received many comments that his writing level is not on par with his other films, especially in second half. But Venkatesh's vintage energetic performance and Varun Tej's innocence on screen worked big time for the film.
Similarly, Mahesh's energy and some catchphrases worked big time but the content did not receive positive comments from reviewers or audiences too. In fact, in competition with Allu Arjun's Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo, Sarileru Neekevvaru remained in second place and that is majorly due to below average content.
Big stars do notice such things and no one from Charan to Arjun are that easy-going these days to not take a note of which one worked better.
Jr. NTR is more interested to work with Trivikram Srinivas, Koratala Siva and Prashanth Neel after RRR. Ram Charan after RRR, wants to lock his next based on script.
Allu Arjun is busy with Sukumar's next and he is looking at Murugadoss, for Tamil debut say reports. Mahesh is taking a break from films for three months and he will start shooting for his next with Vamshi Paidipally in April or May.
Pawan Kalyan is only interested in those filmmakers who are ready to work around his schedules and he has three to four projects already in waiting before he can think about Anil Ravipudi.
Prabhas just started his next and we don't know when he will finish it. He might look for Pan-India filmmakers next than those who are strong with regional level content.
On the whole, few industry insiders feel, Anil Ravipudi did score a hit but he couldn't really make a film that will impress big heroes to think about starting their next with him! Do you think the same too?
