When you decide to become a filmmaker, you enter the industry with a lot of dreams and creative juices. But reality hits so hard in here that all those fancies get evaporated. Yes, in today’s time, the only thing that matters in entertainment is success. If that is not there, then you would be abandoned in no time.
At the same time, success is also a credential for your talent so this is one reason why a constant hunt is on for success formula. In Tollywood, a new formula has emerged. Almost all stories are being written with two flavors, horror comedy or thriller comedy. This is more so for small and medium budget movies.
Stuff like gentle love stories or breezy romantic entertainers with college backdrop are not sustaining at the box office. The treatment of the script should have good slice of humor. This is why the recent release ‘Karthikeya’ worked. Two other examples are ‘Geethanjali’ and ‘Prema Katha Chitram’. It is also heard that Lakshmi Manchu has entered this fray with her new movie ‘Pilavani Perantam’. This is slated to be a horror comedy. As you can see, this concept has struck many young writers and they strongly feel these subjects have the market right now.
