Even though critics ripped R... Rajkumar's gut apart, the movie is not a flop and is steadily climbing the graph in its box office collection, thanks to a past week that has no new credible releases. Prabhu Deva, who is humorously called by 'Prabhu and Deva' by Salman Khan , is the director of this high octane masala entertainer packed with peppy numbers. News is that Prabhu Deva is overwhelmed by the positive response from a commoner who really loved his 'maar maar maar' ya 'pyaar pyaar pyaar' rhythm of filmmaking.
It is reported that a sixty something viewer of his film came to him after its screening and told him that there is a certain rhythm in his direction. Only a director who is gifted with good sense of montage and 'mise en scene' gets the right rhythm in visualising a movie. Prabhu cherishes this experience so much because the word of appreciation came not from an industry insider but from a commoner.
Prabhu Deva's films always made headlines because of their top of the line star cast and mammoth returns. Prabhu is a much 'wanted' man in Bollywood because B town believes that no one else can breathe such an entertaining sensibility into movies like Prabhu. Prabhu started off as a dancer in Kamal Hassan's landmark film Micheal Madan Kama Rajan in Tamil. Even though he is the son of national award winning choreographer Sundaram, he started out as a junior dancer in films and it is the film Gentleman,directed by Shankar changed his destiny. The unique dance sequence of 'Chikku Bukku' made him famous and led him to more successful films like Kadhalan. Prabhu's innings as a director was kick started through a tamil blockbuster Pokkiri which he remade in Hindi as Wanted.
Prabhu is happy with the positive response he is getting for R...Rajkumar from single screens and multiplexes all over India . He said "My producers are happy, my actors are content too and then a common man has come and said something good to me by picking on the technical nuances that even I as a filmmaker didn't think of consciously. These are enough reasons to be content with the film."
Prabhu Deva's next film is with Ajay Devgn and it is titled Action Jackson
