It has almost become a fashion for all filmmakers to plan too far ahead while still working on just a single project. This might be due to the current circumstances where producers are ready to invest in big numbers if there’s enough promise to a project and its future.
However, for every Baahubali and Magadheera, we shouldn’t forget that there’s a Shakti and Badrinath, in the sense that the same success formula wouldn’t work for everyone, and wouldn’t work every single time. Sometimes, directors go wrong with the same formula that turned out to be successful for them in the past, like director Srinu Vaitla, who has always relied on comedy, but has failed to use it to its advantage for the past several years.
With sequels and threequels now dominating the Indian film industry, directors are planning more than a single film to tell a single story. This might be far too much planning, especially when the first movie hasn’t been released yet.
