Ever since the special glimpse of ‘Ustaad Bhagat Singh’ was released recently, Harish Shankar has been flooded with praises. “Wow! The director shot so much gorgeous content in just 8 days. Fabulous! Amazing!!” This is what fanboys are saying on Twitter and Facebook.
Actually, there is nothing sensational about the purported quantum of shoot that was shot in 8 days. At best, one action sequence and a few police station scenes were shot. What is so splendid about it, given the pre-production works were extensive and took several months? Also, the ‘Gabbar Singh’ hangover is vivid.
Tollywood audience are so much used to big-star films being made at a snail’s pace. That’s why Harish Shankar’s pace (about which a lot of assumptions have been made) is stunning some people. Quite frankly, the director doesn’t deserve all these superlative praises.
