Even when critics nailed it down, Sarkar is doing extremely well at the box office and that shows the kind of content AR Murugadoss will carve, which will touch the hearts of commoners. But where is this director when he is making movies with Telugu stars?
Looking at the way Ghajini succeeded at Telugu box office, Megastar Chiranjeevi offered a film to the original director of Tagore. Yes, after coming to know that Tamil original of Tagore, Ramana, is directed by Murugadoss, he was given the chance to direct Stalin. But the film ended up as a disaster.
Then after looking at the way films like Thupaki and Katthi succeeded, Mahesh Babu can't say no to his Spyder. But then, Murugadoss disappointed him big time by giving a lackluster film. That makes us wonder when this director is able to bring all the praise and box office collection for Tamil heroes, why can't he do the same for Telugu stars?
Some say that he is unable to get that grip over Telugu nativity, while few say that as Telugu heroes are giving freehand to him in terms of story, he is wavering a bit and choosing wrong scenes for Telugu stars without keeping their image in mind. For now, Telugu heroes are simply worried whether to work with him or not.
