Director happy with Oohalu Gusagusalade success

Telugu film Oohalu Gusagusalade is going great guns at box office

First time director Srinivas Avasarala is extremely happy with the response he has received for his recent Telugu romantic-drama Oohalu Gusagusalade and this has motivated him to make more films.

“Most low-budget films that are apparently good are only raved by critics but rarely by audiences as they look for entertainment factor and when that’s not found, they discard a film. I’m happy that my film was liked by audiences and critics alike,” said Srinivas .

“The success has given me the confidence to innovate and make more films. I haven’t started working on anything yet but I plan to start soon,” he added.

Starring Naga Shourya and Raashi Khanna, the film in its opening weekend minted over Rs. 2 crore at the ticket window.

There was a lot of Woody Allen influence on Oohalu Gusagusalade. Avasarala says it was his tribute to auteur.

“I’m a big Woody Allen film. I felt happy when people like the references to the legendary filmmaker in my film, which is a tribute to him. Woody has a lot on influence on my writing and that has apparently turned out to be my strength,” he said.
