Director is the surreptitious person behind every frame that we see on screen. Every filmmaker who made an impact in tinsel town has an exclusive style and making of his own. Undoubtedly, the new entrant into this list is Venkatadri Express director, Merlapaka Gandhi.

After-a-long-time, Gandhi is the one who has instrumentally elevated the screenplay and comedy of a Telugu film (Venkatadri Express). Merlapaka Gandhi earlier made a short film ‘Karma Ra Devuda’, which won several awards including best film award in Hyderabad short film festival. Being a film school graduate with zero hands on experience, he proved his mettle with his first big-screen film.

The subject of the film is very simple but the way he narrated it is refreshing. Not just us, but many reviewers said the same, “The script is well written with perfect screenplay and comedy is perfectly handled.” The debut-director was highly successful in featuring actors Sundeep Kishan and Rakul Preet Singh in their roles.

The 25-year old Merlapaka Gandhi is the son of a famous Telugu writer Merlapaka Murali and is a resident of Tirupathi. Gandhi pursued his direction course at LV Prasad Film and TV Academy. 

All-in-all, we would like to credit the super success of Venkatadri Express to the director who accrued film over the past few years. His innovative ideas and style will indeed pave a way for many would-be next gen. filmmakers.
