Other day, Nani’s Gang Leader has opened in theatres to mixed talk all over the Telugu states. From an intelligent filmmaker like Vikram K Kumar, audiences might expect some more punch in the narrative, which is clearly lacking.
A piece of news is coming that actually hero Nani is the one who has changed the climax of the film with a reshoot. Initially, Vikram thought that a weak character like Pencil Parthasarathy can’t handle a head-on collision with hunky racer Deva, and designed an intelligent way to kill him. The director has come up with an out of the box idea and shot a bit of it.
Worried that lack of big fight sequences but upset fans, Nani is heard advising him to drop that plan, and go with the usual hero-meets-villain to thrash him to nuts and bolts kind of ending. Maybe a new and exciting climax would have really worked for Gang Leader, but this made it another routine barb we see at the box office each Friday.
