Puri Jagannadh gained nothing out of Ismart Shankar success?
With iSmart Shankar success, Puri Jagannadh is trying to make his name resound again. He might have thought that heroes will be lined up to do a movie with him post this success but the scene is quite different now.
While also having fun by going around the two states to thank his fans, he is commenting on heroes, making bold statements. To make it look like he has been there but others did not recognise him, he is making it echo when out of 10 films, his one film worked.
The fact that Puri Jagannadh understood how to triumph Idiot and Pokiri style to evolve again was not shown by the movie. This time Ram, Nabha Natesh could make it work with Mani Sharma's able aid, while he tried the same all the time. Stars are looking beyond him but even Tier-2 are not trying for him is what he might have understood.
When nice films are coming out more and more, his commercial formula worked in a market while industry in a way is looking for new directors. The industry is looking at it as his survival tactic than a believable turn of events while Puri is trying to save this as his comeback. Whether if he can prove them wrong with his next films, is yet to be seen.
