“If our sense of judgement can ensure success, every film will surely be a hit. Everybody can continuously produce back-to-back hits,” said Sharwanand when he met the press on Saturday to share his views on the result of Ranarangam. But, unfortunately, it is not the case.
“In a particular angle, we thought Ranarangam would impress upon the audience with its screenplay, if not the script. I even took it for granted that two kinds of characterisations and getups in the backdrop of crime and action against my family backdrop image would bring the audiences to the theatres. But, somehow, our plan did not work out,” added Sharwa while admitting that the collections were very impressive and the appreciation from friends was also good. “Nobody said that it was a wrong attempt,” he said.
The main merit lay in his candid nature and courage to call a spade a spade which is rare in the industry. Sharwa, as he is popularly called in the industry circles, very humbly confided in the media and openly accepted the criticism on the overall final report. He also said that they did not cheat the audience saying that it was a family movie and instead honestly symbolised action and violence shot in the film in every advertisement.
“In the journey with such films, we learn and relearn new lessons. I need some more time to realise what went wrong and where. Judgements cannot be purchased; they have to be taught. That is the reason every Friday, a new crisis befalls us. As far as my individual experience is concerned, Ranarangam gave me tremendous satisfaction,” Sharwa added. About his upcoming ventures, Sharwa said that the film ’96 was halfway through and Srikaram would go on floors shortly.
