Folks, I have a question.

Who finances this habitual failure Ram Gopal Varma’s films.

Lately, the bozo has developed the reverse Midas touch.

For a director making movies for nearly a quarter-century, RGV has been most unimpressive at the box office in recent years.

The below box office numbers tell the sorry story of RGV’s decline:

Southern loudmouth Ram Gopal Varma thinks stealing from Hollywood movies and then boasting about it is a badge of honor.

Here’s the chutia RGV in his own words:

When I made Sarkar….I copied scenes from Godfather. I copied lines from Godfather. I copied character traits from Godfather. Probably that I’ve did it [sic] including if the shot is inspired or copied from Paranormal Activity even in Bhoot Returns.
– Trash film peddler Ram Gopal Varma

Source: Bollywood Hungama interview with RGV

The context for RGV’s braggadocio was during an interview with Bollywood Hungama to promote his upcoming release Bhoot Returns when the host asked RGV about Barfi expropriating scenes from several Hollywood, Japanese and Korean films.

Describing Sarkar as his acknowledged tribute to Godfather, RGV says talk of Indian directors ripping off scenes from Hollywood films is a subject not worth serious consideration.

“Because eventually at the end of the day everything anybody does is coming from some source. It could be a film, it could be a novel or it could be something someone said. It could be something someone read or whatever.”

What an effete defense from a movie-maker without a single creative cell in his body.

RGV also seems to be hinting in the interview that acknowledging the inspiration as with Godfather or Paranormal Activity is enough if there is copying.

Ha ha ha.

Obviously, notions of creativity and originality are completely alien to this gaandu a.k.a. RGV.

Boy, I am thrilled beyond words that RGV’s films are kissing the dust these days and nobody gives a flying f*ck for this jackass any longer.

Indian movie critics have torn apart Telugu loudmouth Ram Gopal Varma’s latest film Department.

Hello, is any one surprised?

RGV has been making trash for so long that he’s now achieved the hitherto thought impossible – he makes tawdry Tollywood look respectful in contrast!

Here take a look at the odium heaped on Department:

Upper Stall

The film, to put it simply, is easily the most deplorable film seen in a long, long time and in a country where we largely make hell of a lot of mediocre films every year, that is one hell of an achievement.


Varma’s latest, Department, takes the director’s increasingly schizoid cinematographic tendencies into a whole other league, and gives us, besides watery eyes and potential nausea, the filmmaker at his most insipid.


The camera angles are often much too casual to be considered ‘cinematic’….There are no punctuations except exclamation marks, no speed-breakers except songs, which are terribly screechy and grating with Nathalia Kaur’s item number hitting rock-bottom, and no way out for these restless law-enforcers than to take the law in their own hands.


In my head, I always imagine Ram Gopal Varma, sitting in his office, legs up on the table, going through a checklist on the last day of a film shoot. Hyperactive camera angle – check. Lots of fake blood – check. Added some element of “Satya”, “Company” or “Sarkar” to the film – check. Leading ladies showing off cleavage – check.

How else do you explain a film like “Department”? That someone (Varma) thought they could make a film with such tacky production values, a convoluted and weak script, and some scenes that could be straight out of a soft-porn flick, and still convince a major studio to fund it and market it as a A-grade movie, is baffling.

Bollywood Hungama:

…it’s the erratic and inconsistent writing that bogs down DEPARTMENT

Times of India

…jarring camerawork, flimsy acting and over-the-top violence.


…extreme pain and abuse-inducing film
