Pawan Kalyan’s much-hyped film Agnyaathavaasi that released on Wednesday, has failed to impress the critics so far.
💔💔💔💔 I certainly didn’t see that coming…no other way to describe the feeling..A bad film which goes nowhere! #Agnyaathavaasi

Despite treading a tried-and-tested path, #Agnyaathavaasi falls flat like a deck of cards. When will Trivikram realize it takes more than just good, powerful dialogues to make a story work? #PawanKalyan does his best but his performance doesn’t save the film from going downhill.

But there is one film critic who seems to have a particular beef with the actor.
సీరియస్ కథకి కామెడీ కథనంతో చికాకుపెట్టి సినిమాను అపహాస్యం చేసిన సినిమా అజ్ఞాతవాసి. పవన్ కళ్యాణ్, త్రివిక్రమ్ కెరీర్ లో అత్యంత దారుణమైన సినిమా.
రిస్క్ చేసి చూస్తే…టైమెమో… మీ ఇష్టం!(ఈ సినిమా పాట ట్యూన్ లో).

Kathi Mahesh, a popular Telugu film critic and director, has been trolling Pawan Kalyan for quite some time. He is not only critical of the actor’s politics, who is the founder-president of the Jana Sena Party, but has made some personal comments against the actor. As a result, the film critic has often been at loggerheads with the vociferous Pawan Kalyan fans.
The Kathi Mahesh versus Pawan Kalyan fans fight has turned into a social media war with filmmakers like Kona Venkat and Ram Gopal Varma sharing their opinion on the controversy.
Kona Venkat, a close associate of Pawan Kalyan, defended the actor and made an appeal on Twitter urging people to remain silent on the issue.
Some Jokers are taking the silence of @PawanKalyan for granted… don’t….

“SILENCE IS A TRUE FRIEND WHO NEVER BETRAYS”….
I request everyone to maintain Silence till 15th January.. I request even Mahesh Kathi to maintain silence..going to any media house or using any platform to speak against fans or PK will spoil the attempt to bring peace 🙏

Meanwhile, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted this:
I just saw this video and I God promisingly felt that Mahesh Katthi is much more handsome and much more beautiful than P K https://t.co/lsYqIQnNUL

I am very disappointed with RGV comparing Sunny Leone with Pawan Kalyan. She is an international star and this guy is a regional hero. I condemn such insult against Sunny Leone. My feelings are hurt!
