Defying the age and physical constraints, today we have veteran star heroes like Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna still high on demand just because of their thirst to work relentlessly striving to serve something new and fresh for audience with each film. May it be Chiranjeevi’s gracious dance treats in Khaidi No 150 or Balayya’s ferocity at display in Gauthami Puthra Satakarni; one may not need any extra evidences to justify their magnanimous, endless stardom.
Among this year’s Pongal releases, two films from two of our biggest stars aka Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyatavasi and Balakrishna’s Jai Simha are the cynosure of all eyes. Unfortunately, verdict from audience and critics is thoroughly disappointing for both the films but when it comes to the matter of dedication and honesty at work, Balakrishna scored far above Pawan Kalyan.
Yes, Pawan Kalyan seems to have clearly given up his penchant to work. His characterization and shouldering of main lead role in Agnyatavasi invited lots of criticism. Neither he was physically fit nor was there his energy at display. Especially in dances and action blocks, Pawan appeared faint and dizzy. In contrast, Balakrishna’s dances on Ammakutti song or his mouthing of lengthy dialogued with panache invited whistles in Jai Simha theaters.
Age factor takes a toll on everyone’s fitness. When in show business, such simple reasons are laughed off without any consideration. A common voice heard among Fans circles is, Pawan Kalyan should learn a leaf from Balakrishna’s sincerity. This is why NBK and Chiru still stand an admirable inspiration for young lot.
