After heavy-duty films like Baahubali and Saaho, Prabhas’ tried to give his image a makeover by doing Radhe Shyam. But the experiment backfired badly.
Prabhas is again doing front-loaded action films like Salaar and Spirit. But amid all these, he has also started shooting for a light-hearted entertainer in the direction of Maruthi.
In a recent interview, the film’s cameraman, Karthik Palani, said that Prabhas’ film with Maruthi is a fun film. He added that it’s not heavy at all and it will be quite different from the kind of films he is doing now.
Prabhas’ decision of doing a light-hearted entertainer can turn out to be a masterstroke. Fans also want to see Prabhas in roles like Bujjigadu, Mr. Perfect, and Darling. It would be nice to see Prabhas having fun with his role with a lot of ease after a long time.
But Maruthi’s last film Pakka Commercial’s failure is acting as a red flag. He has never done a big film with a big star. Directing a megastar like Prabhas isn’t a joke.
His recent form also hasn’t been great, so it would be very challenging for Maruthi to handle a star like Prabhas and deliver a film that will satisfy not only his fans but also the common audience.
