Are directors to be blamed completely?

A lot is being talked about the recent comments that Megastar Chiranjeevi directly or indirectly made towards director Koratala Siva, and the disastrous result of their film Acharya. Whatever Chiru’s intentions were, while making the comments, the incident has certainly brought to front a major issue in the industry.

Whenever a film turns out to be a disaster or turns out to be a failure, it is the directors that are usually blamed for the failures, and rarely anyone else. While it is true that the director is the most responsible person when it comes to making sure whether a movie is being made perfectly or not, there are several times when just the director’s efforts are not enough, and a lot of things that are not clear to the outside world, play a huge part.

Very often, we hear that top actors keep meddling in the storyline and how a film should be handled, and such films mostly run out to be disappointing, because a director hasn’t been given full freedom to whatever he thinks is right. As such, it is always to be kept in mind that the director of a film shouldn’t always be blamed for a film’s failure, and it is to be remembered that there are a lot of other factors that are at play as well.
