The Curse of Ram Gopal Varma!

There is a bizarre truth about RGV's films! 

I have written twice about Ram Gopal Varma on my blog, the first one I called 'The truth about the man', and the second 'The De-Evolution of Ram Gopal Varma'.

However, the reason why I am writing this mini post today is to share with you a bizarre observation that struck me after the bomb blasts in Hyderabad a week before the release of his next film 'The Attacks of 26/11”.

Reality competes with Fiction!

It is often said that 'art imitates life' and in RGV's case he has done that numerous times. That isn't a big deal. But have you ever heard of "life imitating art imitating life?" and that too multiple times. I bet not.

Now read this:

June 14 - 2000, RGV's 'Jungle' based on the dreaded sandalwood smuggler Veerappan releases. Movie is all over the news for its theme while the actual man in the jungle has been silent for years. But just after the movie's release, Veerappan once again entered the headlines with the kidnapping of Kannada superstar Rajkumar.

RGV’s movie about the underworld 'Contract’ releases on July 18, 2008 and it has scenes of a terrorist explaining motives behind how and why bombs should be exploded. A few days later there are blasts in Ahmedabad that are eerily similar in manner to the ones explained in the film. TV channels and newspapers too carried reports about these similarities.

In 2010 'Raktha Charitra' the biopic about the faction war in Andhra Pradesh between Paritala Ravi and Maddela Suri makes headline news while the actual people on whom the movie is based are once again all out of action. Paritala Ravi was already dead for some years and Suri hardly made any news at that time. Ten days after the movie’s release, guess what? Suri is murdered, shot in cold blood.

Maria Susairaj, involved in the brutal murder of Neeraj Grover, was a news maker in 2008 who vanished from the headlines only to suddenly and most bizarrely come back into the news as she was released from jail just days before RGV's movie based on her 'Not A Love Story' hit the theatres.

And the most puzzling of them all, Kasab was hanged out of the blue just before RGV started filming the climax of 'The Attacks of 26/11’ thereby giving the film its desired ending and now the most bizarre of all, there is a terror attack in Hyderabad just a week before 'The Attacks of 26/11' is due for release.

Unconnected they all seem but just the number of these coincidences baffle my mind. There could be many other movies under this category of 'life imitating art imitating life’ genre, but the sheer number of movies from RGV that follow this bizarre pattern is shocking.

I wonder if he is a soothsayer or if his movies are cursed!

P.S: Curiosity overdrive, wonder what RGV is attempting to make next. Maybe we should suggest him some good ideas to get rid of some of our problems minus the collateral damage. Please suggest in the comments!

Spread the word:


  1. Surprised to see a quick blog post from you Kartik! It happened that I started to "try" to understand RGV only after reading your blog posts on him back during the days of Rakta Chartitra..n I could only learn that I'm trying to measure the depth of ocean when learning to swim..
    n answering to your question at the end of this post, I don't know what to say..

    we don't suggest the creator about his creation.

  2. dude, i love u man., for writing an article abt RGV who is also my FAV director.., interested to see rgv to tweet this.., hatsoff to u

  3. Amazing.... Me and RGV are so similar.....

  4. Kartik...

    Coincidences and Krittika. Is Krittika Nakshatra involved? Why were you named Kartik? Generally, when a child is born when the moon is in Krittika or atleast in the month of Kartika; that child is named Kartik or Krittika depending on the gender. Kartik...You notice coincidences.

    If Ram Gopal Varma's date of birth as found on the internet is right, he is most probably born when the moon is in Krittika. If Ram Gopal Varma does not find coincidences then he creates them in his own strange way.

    I posted an essay on Drona's son, Ashwatthaman from Indian Epic, The Mahabharata. I thought he was a complete non-entity till I noticed a point which was like a kick to the balls. {You cannot post your comments in my blog. I blocked it. Anyway, you have my e-mail address if you want to contact me.}
    P.S. :- If The Moon is in Krittika Nakshatra in your horoscope then Krittika is your "Janma Nakshatra".

  5. Wonderful observation....well, all soothsayers, rishis and munis in ancient times were the ones who lived by heart and soul, fearless and devotion towards we have rgv.
