Action hero Gopichand who shot to fame with his villainous acts in films like 'Jayam', 'Varsham' and 'Nijam', turned into a hero and scored decent hits. But his track record in recent years has been awful and his recent outing 'Chanakya' proves once again that he lost his touch in selecting good scripts.
'Chanakya' which was released on October 5th was ridiculed by critics and the audience alike. Because of huge competition, the film failed to get decent money even and now there is no chance of picking up and may end up as a huge hole in the pockets of producers. The logic less narration, unnecessary commercial ingredients made this film an outright disaster.
Though there are a few more films lined up for Gopichand, the failure of 'Chanakya' is a huge blow for his already drowning career. Most of his recent films were failures and looks as if Gopichand really needs to do some introspection.
