People show a keen interest in politics only at the time of elections. At other times, they don’t take politics seriously. The same happened with complicated director Ram Gopal Varma’s Lakshmi’s NTR. There’s a very poor response to the film which has presented Chandrababu Naidu as a betrayer responsible for the suffering of NTR in his last days.
The film is released several weeks after the polling. Counting is over as Jaganmohan Reddy won and Chandrababu lost. Naturally, the viewers don’t hold any curiosity any longer. Even the sympathisers of ruling and opposition parties no longer show interest.
TDP sympathisers say that going by the landslide victory of YCP, the Lakshmi’s NTR also should have got a more or less similar positive response. It proves that there’s no strong anti-Chandrababu feeling among the public as is alleged by YCP. Analysts are saying that it is another indicator to show that eventually, the sympathy factor created a massive wave in favour of Jagan.
