All the tickets for the film are being snapped up on account of his(the director of the film) reputation, otherwise there is not much of a good film.
Is this sentence correct?
Please help me.
even if 'on account of' and 'owing to' are synonyms (=because of), I can hear a slight semantic difference between them. The former means smth like 'by reason of'. 'Owing to', on the other hand, means smth more like 'thanks to', which is closer to your meaning. It is thanks to the film director's reputation that the tickets are sold out, or else there would have still been some/ many left for sale.
