Trivikram may have failed to live up to our expectations, but his films come with a fairy tale ring somewhere. That is precisely why his characters, his dialogues and the situations impress us subconsciously. That also explains why Jalsa and Julayi, despite initially being dubbed somewhat unrealistic, went on to become noticeable hits.
There is little doubt that he has retained his style, wit and humour over the years. He is perhaps the best dialogue writer around. That said, there has been a fall from grace too, at least to an extent. This was more than apparent in the way the dialogues of Teen Maar were written. The verbosity robbed the film's feel to a good great extent.
Trivikram could well surprise us still. Nobody knows when a talent asserts himself. Every creative person would have a lean patch at some point or the other in his career. Srinivas is no exception.
It is hoped that his up-and-coming film with Pawan Kalyan, which will go on the floors soon, will prove to be a cross between the well-executed Athadu and well-written Nuvvu Naku Nacchav (much as we had hoped Julayi would be).
IG wishes him all the best and many more happy returns of the day.
