A message to the Telugu CMs

Cinema has a huge impact on our lives. Whether this impact is positive or negative has always been a point of contention. Mahesh Babu’s latest release ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’, directed by Koratala Siva, is being a rare movie that has a lot to teach audiences. Koratala Siva is known for making commercial movies with a social message, and has proved his forte again.

Audience talk apart, politicians are deriving inspiration from the movie too. CPI leader Ramakrishna recently proved this, advising the CMs of both Telugu states to watch the film to learn how to respond to people’s problems. Ramakrishna was speaking in Hyderabad. He said that both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh were in a state of anarchy. This laurel from a politician has made the makers of the movie very happy.

Meanwhile, a strong criticism of the movie has come from the media. If ‘Oke Okkadu’ showed the power of a journalist turned politicians, today’s situation saw the theatre erupting into whistles when the media was being verbally thrashed. At the end of the day, it can be concluded that ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ holds a mirror to current society and politics, and that is why it is a hit.
