Journalist-turned-producer Ravi K Punnam feels filmmakers should focus on realistic stories to connect emotionally with the audience.
"Although producers' concern is to make profit by churning out films, but we should also make films that are realistic and connect with the audience on emotional level," Ravi told IANS.
In the recent pas, he feels, realistic theme-based movies have done well.
'Masti' is about five missing girls and the search to find them forms the rest of the story.
"Films such as 'Ee Rojullo', 'Oka Romantic Crime Katha' with realistic and offbeat subjects have done well at the box-office. Moreover, none of these films had any big stars in it," he added.
Ravi, who has produced Telugu drama-thriller 'Masti', which is set to release soon, says his film deals with a realistic subject.
He added: ",'Masti' is about five missing girls and the search to find them forms the rest of the story. It's a small budget film with relatively new faces."
The film, directed by Chacha, stars Sushma, Deeksha Panth, Nazia Adil, Rekha and Madhu Bala.
It also stars Kota Srinivasa Rao, Pradeep, Prem and Katam Reddy.
