By Charan Tupurani

Directing a movie and impressing the audience with the debut movie itself is always a tough task for every film maker. Few of the directors might get successful in the very first go and few might come back with refreshing ideas in their second movie and score a success. Here is a list of directors who’ve scored success with their 2nd movie, while we were mostly unaware of their directorial debut.

1Shekar Kammula

The director of the recent happening movie Oka Manasu, which is having a lot of positive vibes in audience had made his directorial debut with Mallela Theeram lo Sirimalle Puvvu which stared  Sri Divya. This movie got great appreciation from the critics but was again unnoticed by the audience.
