Director Puri Jagannadh who failed to impress Telugu audience lately with his movies is now coming with Ram Pothineni to test his luck with “iSmatShankar”. After jrNTR’s Temper, Puri directed Jyothi Lakshmi, Loafer, ISM, Rogue, PaisaVasool, Mehabooba and all these movies failed miserably at the box-office. But on the other hands, Ram Pothineni is in good form with his back to back hits. Except for Hyper, all his recent movies scored decent hits at the box office.
The trailer of “iSmartShankar” hit YouTube on the Occasion of RamPothineni’s birthday and when you see it Pokiri, Ek Niranjan strikes your chords immediately. In his previous movies, Ram acted as a chocolate boy and stick with love stories only. Mass hero role was never a cup of tea of Ram. All his Mass Masala movies disappointed his fans. We need to wait and see if this Shankar can hit the bull’s eye.
In the trailer, we can find Puri’s standard regular template shots like Charminar, Old City, mass fights and extra mass masala dialogues. It is surprising that there are no traces of heroines in the teaser at all. Manu Sharma is composing the music for this film.
