Similarly scene is being written in the screenplay of Harish Shankar's career by Film Gods. He gets a Hit, then scores a Flop and then, he struggles to get another opportunity but again scores a hit. Now, everything repeats again.
Certainly, Harish Shankar is not a person who is looking to give Shankar, Rajamouli, Trivikram Srinivas or Sukumar some competition. They have distinctive styles and his seems to follow dumb female characters and create male characters with attitude.
He is much better writer and dialogues are his biggest weapon. He struggles to maintain pace and balance everything but still he has the talent to hold your interest through some tough portions.
It seems like he relaxes when he finds success and work hards when he needs one. After Duvvada Jagannadam, he had to struggle hard to get Valmiki alias Gaddalakonda Ganesh on to the sets and the movie seems to be accepted by B and C centers audiences much better than 'A' centres.
Movie will recover costs say trade pundits and the director needs to look at continuing the momentum than letting the guard down for his own sake.
