SS Rajamouli has stood out as the pride of Tollywood with the huge collections made by 'Eega', the film which is made without a star hero. The film has also won the National awards in the best regional movie and best special effects category. Previously, his blockbuster film,'Magadheera', also won the National award in the special effects category only.
Will this ace director get the National award as the best director? Or not? Does he has that capability? Or not? These are the questions that are arising in the minds of many movie lovers. It is because Rajamouli has not got any National award till now and his films 'Magadheera' and 'Eega', both have got the award in the special effects category only in National level. Many are saying that the special effects have played a key role in those movies than the direction.
The graphics have played a key role in the case of 'Life of Pie' movie also. But its director Ang Lee has won the Oscar award as the best director, competing with Hollywood legendary director Spielberg's 'Lincoln'. The critics are showing this example.
Awards are never the benchmarks to measure the talent of anyone. Star heroes like NTR and Prabhas also have many times said that they love to act in Rajamouli's direction. So a director like him never needs awards to prove himself.
Let's hope that this director will continue to bring huge profits to the producers and make movies that raise the image of heroes.
