Vijay Devarakonda's fans are furious with Ram Gopal Varma aka RGV for comparing Dear Comrade's collection at the box office with Puri Jagannadh's iSmart Shankar.
iSmart Shankar, which released in the theatres on July 19, is directed by RGV's protégé Puri Jagannadh. The movie, which has become a hit, comes from the director who has delivered a series of flops in recent years.
Last week, Ram Gopal Varma, who was all thrilled with its huge success, tweeted a video of his crazy champagne moment at the movie's success party. The clip created a lot of buzz on social media.
Dear Comrade hit the screens a week after the release of iSmart Shankar and received a successful opening. Ram Gopal Varma, who is known for his crazy tweets, posted a screenshot of the film's collection in RTC X Road cinemas in its second week and took a dig at Vijay Devarakonda's latest release.
Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, "is issmart shankar more Issmart than nonissmart comrade or is nonissmart comrade not more issmart than Shankar? Truth only RAM's VIJAYam knows."
Ram Gopal Varma's post did not go down well with many viewers, who slammed him saying that there is no comparison between both the films because they belong to different genres. They said that Dear Comrade is an explicit story and an emotional roller-coaster. On the other hand, iSmart Shankar is a regular commercial potboiler with no sensible story.
Here is how Vijay Devarakonda's fans reacted to Ram Gopal Varma's Twitter post:

It is such a disgrace that you are demoralizing a quality content film by comparing it to a commercial entertainer. I can't believe an uncontent man like you made content films then and making uncontent statements now. Content cannot be a content for an uncontent man like you.

it's very sad to have Senseless People only in Telugu Rastraalu Because they like #IsmartShankar and discouraging #DearCommrade which has an Explicit Story defining who an actualCommrade is! I will be appreciating people if they loved both the movies and encourage good movies
