His films involves satirical subjects, High volume of violence and black comedy just like our puri jagannadh films deal with. Both their movies have dialogues which will slap you right on the face with the kind of logic and satire in it. Just like pulp fiction for tarantino, Puri has pokiri for him which made him a star director. The path breaking blockbuster was later remade into several Indian Languages and catapulted him to national recognition. Main similarity we can find in their movies are those cuss words in dialogues.
6. Krish – Frank Darabont:
Frank Darabont is well known for his classic “The Shawshank Redemption”. It is now widely considered one of the best films of all time. Still it holds top position in IMDB’s “top best movies” list though it is released in the year 1994. Krish (Radhakrishna jagarlamudi) is Indian version of frank for sure. Same like frank, krish movies deal with philosophical things and their screenplay. His movies Gamyam, Vedham, Krishnam Vande Jagadhgurum and Kanche never performed well at box office but those films received many awards and outstanding reviews from critics for its acting, story and realism. Same applied to frank darabont’s classic the Shawshank redemption which is a boxoffice disappointment but garnered well with awards and reviews.

Charlie Chaplin is considered one of the most influential person in the history of film industry. He is known for his slapstick comedy films. He directs his own films.

Same with srinuvaitla who only depends on comedy content for his every movie. Some of the similarities are “Both Chaplin and srinu vaitla are criticized for their routine and repeated comedy content based films. Another similarity is they involve in controversies by adding some scenes intentionally on some film actors, celebrities or political persons criticizing them for comedy in their movies. Chaplin’s movie “The Great Dictator” in which he directly satirized Adolf Hitler and srinu vaitla’s movie Baadshah in which he directly satirized Ram Gopal Varma are the small examples for that similarity.
