If we have to believe Ram Gopal Varma, no one knows how to make 'great films' but they just happen. But the biggest punch is, the same team tries to spoil the image and range of the original creation.
Right now, many cinema lovers are wondering if Akkineni Nagarjuna is also moving in that direction. Using the lyrics of his father late ANR's songs, these days Nagarjuna scored hits with movies like Soggade Chinni Nayana. On that note, will he dare to use a title of his father's classic movie?
Buzz has that Nagarjuna and Nani's upcoming film being directed by Sriram Aditya is now titled as "DevDas". The director is said to have named his two lead characters as Dev and Das, and hence this title. Though there is no clarity over it, many say that Nagarjuna should not spoil such a classic title for this comedy entertainer.
Devdas is an iconic Bengali novel that was made into a film in many Indian languages. Apart from Hindi version, it's the Telugu version that gained that cult classic status with terrific performances from ANR and Savitri as Devdasu and Parvati. That's an immortal film with a tragic love story. Let's see what happens.
