So far, some action scenes were shot in specially erected huge set at Ramoji Film City. Presently some more action scenes and some chasing scenes are being choreographed in Vizag.
It is reliably learnt that all the action scenes are very important in the movie. This is the hatrick film in the combination of NTR and Rajamouli.

Venkatesh's movie in brisk progress

The shooting of a film being directed by young director Boyapati Srinivas and produced by D Sureshbabu on the prestigious banner of Suresh Movies with Venkatesh and Nayanatara in the lead is going on a brisk pace.
It may be mentioned here that Venkatesh was injured while participating in the shooting of the film some time ago. Following this, the shooting was temporarily postponed.
Later, Venkatesh has become busy with the shooting of 'Aadavari Maatalaku Ardhale Verule' on the banner of Sri Saideva Productions. After the release of the film, again Venkatesh returned to his home production's flick 'Tulasi'.
Though the title of the film was not yet officially announced, it is reliably learnt that the unit had confirmed this as the title.
The shooting of the film which is presently going on at a brisk pace is likely to hit screen in September. One had to wait and watch whether Boyapati Srinu, whose debut film 'Bhadra' was a hit, could succeed in his second attempt or not.

'Dubai Seenu' to release on June 7

Directed by Sreenu Vaitla and produced by DVV Danaiah on the banner of Universal Media 'Dubai Seenu' with Raviteja and Nayanatara in the lead is all set for release soon.
Speaking on the occasion, producer DVV Danaiah says, 'We are planning to release our film 'Dubai Seenu' with 225 prints across the State on June 7. It is well aware that 'Venky' which came in the combination of Sreenu Vaitla and Raviteja was a big hit. We are confident that this movie would repeat the history and would be a very big hit. Raviteja's role in this film is a mass character and is a total entertainer. Likewise, Nayanatara not only filled the glamour slot but had good scope to perform. Moreover, Sreenu Vaitla's recent film 'Dhee' was a big hit, and our recent release 'Desamuduru' was a blockbuster. Hence there were lots of expectations on the movie and we are sure that we will reach the expectations. We are confident that 'Dubai Seenu' would be another big hit on our banner.'

Shivaji Exclusive Trailer

Friday, May 25, 2007

Reason for Shivaji Delay

This is about Shivaji, sources in Chennai claim that, the actual reason for the delay in the movie release is not the post-production work but the business problem, which has not been done. The reason behind this they cite is that a ruling party politician’s son was reportedly interested in buying the rights of the movie and offered a sum of 85 crores, which the producers declined and said they would be able to do business to the tune of 120 crores and explained in what way it was possible - as the first 2 weeks the ticket prices could be hiked to 180 Rs.

So the politician’s son, immediately got a rule passed by the government that the ticket price in Tamil Nadu shouldn’t exceed 40 Rs., this happened in January and regarding this issue, there was a problem in the release of Tamil Pokiri also.

Now at that prices, the distributors are hesitating to buy the movie and Rajnikant is away to Himalayas for meditation, and the producers are in a fix as their price is not coming up to their expectation and they don’t want to under sell the film, hence delaying the movie umpteen times.

The voice behind Shriya in Sivaji

Cinema is an unusual place for a Mechanical Engineering graduate from the BITS, Pilani, to be in but Kanika says she finds the place
very interesting. S
he started her acting career as the heroine in Susie Ganesan's Five Star, a film produced by Mani Ratnam's Madras Talkies. And now she lends her voice to Shriya in the Rajnikanth starrer Sivaji. Earlier, the actress has also dubbed for Sada in Anniyan.

She done a movie with Srikanth(Ottesti Cheptunna). Earlier reports came that shriya voice is dubbed by sandhya. But that rumor mills are shut down with this.

Director @ 21

AVERAGE age of a debutant director in Tollywood is 30 years.But here is a guy named Suman Pathuri, with no filmi background,is going to director a Telugu commercial film at a tender age of 21. He is from Sanjose,CA and well trained in film making at Academy of Art University,San Francisco.Eariler he worked as co-director for Vennela.

Kishore(remember Khadar in Vennela?),Ravi Varma will be seen in other important roles.

Devi and Charmi! is love in air?

Latest buzz is that Devi Sri Prasad fell flat to the charms of Charmme. Intimacy is said to have developed between the duo when the music director visited the sets of Pournami, an MS Raju movie, in which Charmme played the heroine. His last scored music for Rakhi, which is considered the swan song of the heroine in Telugu industry. Devi Sri is said to have used his spell to cast her in Shankar Dada Zindabad, but in vain. Megastar himself declined the recommendation as she had declined the item number in Stalin, pushing the chance to Anushka. All said and done, Devi Sri’s obsession goes unending. Though Charmme announced on her birthday (May 17th) that she had no marriage plans for the time being, idle talk is ripe about the probable wedlock of the duo.
Did Charmme say goodbye to her screen mentor Krishnavamsi?

'Desamuduru' to celebrate 125 days function soon

Directed by versatile director Puri Jagannath and produced by DVV Danaiah on the banner of Universal Media 'Desamuduru' with Allu Arjun and Hansika Motwani was released recently and was proved to be a blockbuster.

The film is going to complete 125 days successfully in the next few days. Chakri's melodious music turned a boon for the film.

Performance of Allu Arjun, Chakri's music, Puri Jagannath's directorial abilities turned pillars for the success of the movie.

Producer DVV Danaiah had decided to celebrate 125 days function by the end of May.

'Veduka' to hit screen on May 31

The audio of 'Veduka' directed by Jitender Y and produced by Ponnamaneni Venkateswara Rao on the banner of Akshaya Films with Raja, Poonam Bajwa in the lead, which was released recently is getting a positive response.

The producer held a meet to reveal the release date.

He says, 'Anoop gave melodious tunes to all the songs. The success of the audio had hiked the expectations on the success of our movie and we believe that as a good omen. The way the characters of Raja and Poonam Bajwa were moulded was quite different and would be very attractive to the audiences. I wish the film would give a good break to Raja. I compliment our director Jitender for moulding 'Veduka' in an attractive way.'

Director Jitender says, 'The audiences had a habit of welcoming different movies. I believe that our film 'Veduka' would give a new experience to the audiences. The entire film is quite interesting and would do complete justice to the title.'

'Lakshyam' shoots action scenes

Action scenes are being choreographed for 'Lakshyam' produced by Nallamalupu Srinivas (Bujji) on the banner of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Productions introducing Srivasu as director with Gopichand and Anushka in the lead.

Presently the film is being shot at Victoria Memorial School in Dilsukhnagar of Hyderabad, where some action scenes are being canned under the direction of fight master Vijay involving Gopichand and some other fighters.

It may be mentioned here that the recent film of Gopichand, 'Okkadunnadu' was proved to be successful.

The success of the film had increased the expectations of the forthcoming film 'Lakshyam' of Gopichand among the audiences as well as in the industry circles.

Newcomer Mithoon impresses with 'The Train'

Mithoon gets his big break finally with 'The Train' and he's done quite an impressive job for a newcomer. The movie sees the sensual Shilpa Rao making a mark for herself. With every song being either average or good, the soundtrack should do great with the audience.

KK does it again. With the emotional and sentimental track 'Beete lamhein', he re-establishes his hold on great singing. Kshitij Tarey, who's a new name to reckon with, joins him.

The poetic lyrics by Sayeed Qadri teamed with Mithoon's music makes for some nice sentimental music. Slow in its pace, the number also has continuous light guitar strumming that makes it pleasurable to hear.

'Mausam' is one track that cannot be missed. Especially since the composer renders his own voice to the track. Who would have known he has such a great voice!

Again, with melodic lyrics, this track has an array of musical arrangements that add to the feel of the number. Sentiments are packed in this track too, making it a great romantic piece.

'Teri tamanna', with the duo of KK and Zubin Garg, is next on the list of 'worth-it' songs, though its popularity could be termed doubtful. It sounds nice with electric guitars strumming their way through the song, but there's something lacking that might prevent it from reaching the top.

Shilpa Rao and Mithoon once again make 'Woh ajnabee' worth a hear. Rao's sensual and seductive voice sounds amazing and makes the track enjoyable.

To end the album, Mithoon brings forward 'The Train (An Inspiration)'. The composer decides to go absolutely literal with the number, as throughout the song one gets to hear various sounds associated with the train. There's the chugging of the train, the cooing, and Qadri's lyrics too lend support. A job well done!

Mithoon is going to have his hands full after this album and, hopefully, the likes of Reshammiya will take a back seat. Not only does Mithoon prove his mettle as a composer, his voice makes a mark and will be noticed. Way to go Mithoon!

'Rang De Basanti' to be re-launched

UTV has ambitious plans up its sleeve. Besides spreading its wings in the international arena [co-producing THE NAMESAKE and planning international co-productions with Will Smith and M. Night Shyamalan], the corporate house is dubbing its 2006 hit RANG DE BASANTI in English.

In fact, UTV will re-launch RANG DE BASANTI as a crossover release in the international market. The original Hindi version was of 2.50 hours duration, while the international version will be of 2.10 hours duration -- 40 minutes shorter. Also, the title will be changed to COLOUR OF SACRIFICE.

The international version for global audiences will have a limited theatrical release in the next few months.

'Jayam' Ravi debuts in Telugu

'Jayam' Ravi and Vishaal are two young heroes in Tamil who are of Telugu origin. Almost all the hit films of the former were remakes of Telugu blockbusters, the most recent one being 'Nuvvustanante Nenodantana'.

For a long time, 'Jayam' Ravi and his family were planning to make a direct film in Telugu to establish his box office marketability here in Tollywood. Finally, time has come.

'Jayam' Ravi won Tamilnadu state government's Kalaimaamani award this year. Naturally, he is jubilant for having achieved such an honor so early in his career. Now comes his first film in Telugu. 'Aggiramudu' is the most likely name of the film. In all probabilities, his elder brother, Raja might direct this. Search is now on for a heroine.
Meanwhile, the actor is most likely to get married before the end of this year. His family ahs already started looking for a bride for him.

Rajamouli to direct Ramcharan Tej

Ram Charan Teja, son of Padma Bhushan, Mega Star, Dr Chiranjeevi, is presently busy with his debut film 'Chirutha' directed by versatile director Puri Jagannath and produced by C Aswinidutt on the banner of Vyjayanti Movies.

After completing his first film, he would play hero in a film to be produced by Allu Aravind on the banner of Gita Arts. According to sources in Film Nagar, Ram Charan Teja would work in the direction of SS Rajamouli, which would be his third project.

By that time, Rajamouli's home production 'Yamadonga' would also come to an end. This shows, how Ram Charan Teja is meticulously planning his career, with the first film from a versatile director like Puri Jagannath and third film with a dynamic director like Rajamouli, who did not face any kind of flops in his career.

Being the son of a Mega Star, there will be lots of expectations on him in the audiences in general and Mega Star and Power Star fans in particular.

It is not that easy to reach their expectations and hence these many precautions in choosing his directors. All the best Cherry!

Chirutha to go to Bangkok again

Megastar Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan Teja’s maiden film, Chirutha, is fast finishing its schedule. As its Hyderabad portion of shooting is nearing its completion, the team is gearing up for to leave for Bangkok again to shoot a major portion there.

Chirutha began its regular shoot in Thailand. Now the team is leaving for the same place to can important scenes over Ram Charan Teja and its heroine Neha Sharma.
Manisharma is composing music to the film. It is produced by Ashwini Dutt.

Shivaji postponed again

Director Shankar makes grandeur movies. He has highest success ratio in South India that is why every big time producer wants to make a film with him. But the producers who actually get the chance to produce movies with him feel otherwise. They always kept on blood pressure raising situations by delaying the film endlessly. This time the grand production house, AVM, is suffering. Shankar does it again with Shivaji. The film is again postponed.
It is not releasing on May 31st as it was announced earlier. It hits the screens on June 15th instead.
Remember Shankar’s last release Aparachitudu was also postponed several times.
The reason for delaying the film is cited as lack of sufficient publicity. Till now, no trailer for the film was released. It is height of maintaining secrecy. Nowhere in the world has it happened like this.

Athidhi 4th song shoot begins at RFC

New schedule of Mahesh Babu’s Athidhi has begun on Tuesday, May 22, 2007. A duet is being canned at a specially erected set at Ramoji Film City. Raju Sundaram who has choreographed all the three songs earlier is composing steps for this song too.

Directed by Surender Reddy and produced by Ramesh Babu on Krishna Productions Pvt Ltd, Athidhi is romantic action drama. Manisharma is scoring the music. Bollywood heroine Amritha Rao is making her Telugu debut in this film.

NTR and NTR together in Yamadonga

As Reported earlier NTR lent his voice for a song in YamaDonga. Here are few more snippets about that song and the film. This song is on NTR and Mamata Mohandas in the film. And in real, NTR and Mamata Mohandas gave their own voices for this song. Mamata Mohandas is already familiar to Telugu audience with her voice (she sang Rakhee.. Rakhee song in NTR's Rakhee). This song has 4 stanzas (2 charanalu 2 pallavulu) and is filmed in 4 sets. The song is completed recently at Padmalaya studios.

• Confrontation scene between Yamudu (Mohanbabu) and NTR. This scene is supposed to be another highlight in which NTR will say a lengthy dialog that will leave the audience stunned.
• Also, some extraordinary graphics were added to this film. As sources say, NTR will be on screen with legendary NTR in graphics. Earlier similar graphics were used to show legendary NTR in the film Kalisundaam Raa. It is of no doubt that fans will go crazy with this type of highlights in the film.

SS Rajamouli is the director. MM Keeravani is the music director. Mohan Babu is playing the role of Yama dharmaraju while Rajeev Kanakala plays Indra.

Raju Bhai Review

After a successful Satyam, a disastrous Dhana 51 and a damp Brahmastram, director Sooriya Kiran is back with Raju Bhai. Starring Manchu Manoj Kumar, it is his third movie after Donga Dongadi and Sree. The actor has now lost oodles of weight and is looking much better than he did in his debut. Raju Bhai is no great shakes, but it definitely beats the heat. The flip side is it's again 'the same old, the same old'.

Plot: Babaji (Dhandayudhapani) is the local Don types. Raju is jobless till he saves Babaji's son Vasanth from some rival parties. Raju gets into Babaji's gang, doing jobs for him that take muscle power. He meets Anjali (Shiela), (who has only her father-Tanikella Bharani) who he fights with, but obviously falls for later. She tries to convert him to be decent and leave the rowdy gang. But in a police raid in an unrespectable area, Raju is caught. Anjali breaks up with him, but there is more truth than that meets the eye. Raju's sacrifice and whether he wins her love back is the rest of the plot.

Hightlights:Music and Dance are feather in the cap for this movie.

Last Word It's an average entertainer, with the hero being made into a 'tough guy-turns into sacrificial goat'. Nothing we haven't seen before. Raju Bhai has some sentiment, some comedy, a few good songs, a good lead pair and regular fight sequences. That sounds good, but for almost 3 hours, there has to be more substance. Otherwise, its again regular fare. Been there, seen that.

Prince kosam Peter vesina master plan

Peter Heins made a story, then narrated to Mahesh Babu. Mahesh liked it but there was a small..oops big hitch. The problem was that if Mahesh were to do this film, he would have had to undergo martial arts training for six months in Vietnam and the whole film would be shot in Vietnam and surrounding forests. Inko problem undhi aagandi. The budget would be thirty crores and the actor told him to cut it down to twenty as the producer wouldn’t gain. Also the working period of the movie would be for 200 days in which the action sequences would be for 80 days.

Generally for a movie a team works for twenty days in a month, so for 200 days they would have to shoot for 10 months and the post-production would come upto one year and the training part would take not less than 8 to 9 months..meaning a total of two years would go into that movie. This incident happened during Pokiri release and if Mahesh Babu would have done this film, aayana fans mind block ayyedhi and we wouldn’t get to watch a Mahesh Babu film for two years.

NTR turns Singer

NTR has already surprised everyone by shedding his weight. He is now slimmer and looks very handsome. Now, he springs another surprise. NTR has sung a song for the first time. He lent his voice for Yamadonga and crooned super hit song, "O Lammi Tikka Reginda ... " from Yamagola. Music Diector M M Keeravani remixes the song for Yamadonga. A month ago, it had been recorded.

The newer version, of "O Lammi Tikkaregindi..", is sung by NTR and heroine Mamata Mohandas and it features both of them in it. Mamata has already sung for Rakhi.

Those who have heard NTR’s voice are raving him. “He crooned like a professional singer. Perhaps this is the first time that a song is shot on the lead pair that is originally sung by themselves,” a unit member said.

In the early stages of filmmaking, actors used to sing songs for themselves. But after playback system is introduced actors stopped singing. So Rajamouli brings in that magic again.

Yamadonga is the hottest project in Tollywood now. It is also being made in gigantic manner. It stars NTR, Mamata Mohandas, Priyamani and Mohan Babu in the lead roles. The film is slated for July release and is produced by Cherry and Urmila Gangaraju on Viswamithra Creations banner.

Mahesh Babu to endorse Hero Honda

This is the hottest buzz in the Film Nagar,Mahesh babu is soon endorsing World's Largest Two Wheeler Company Hero Honda,The deal is already per the sources. Let's wait &see !

Ram in YVS 's Rey

Director and producer YVS Chowdhary is planning another film with Ram. Last year, he introduced Ram with Devadasu and it turned out to be a blockbuster. Presently, YVS is making Okka Magadu with Balakrishna. Soon after this, he is planning another love story with Ram. It is likely to be titled ‘Rey’ - short form of ‘Orey’.

This title is chosen because YVS feels a song in Okka Magadu, which goes with ‘Rey’, will become very popular as it was happened with ‘Okka Magadu’ song in Seetaiah.

Can Prabhas wait too long?

It is observed that the current movie moghuls of Telugu industry Dil Raju and MS Raju had continuous hits with Dil, Arya, Bhadra, Bommarillu, Manasantha Nuvve, Okkadu, Nee Sneham, Varsham, NVNV. Both of them gave a disaster after the success streak with Munna and Pournami and the common factor for both these films is ‘young rebel star’ Prabhas.

Coming to Prabhas, he is on a holiday for two months and he is planning to do his next film only in October with Puri Jagannath but Film Nagar people don’t think so as Pawan Kalyan is very interested to work with Puri Jagannath and also it is said that Jagan has a script for PK and also registered a title Kantree. If this combination materialises, Jagan will have the credit of continuously worked in three films with members of Chiru family.

I can’t do comedy anymore: Venky

It was pleasant to watch Venky being forthright and spontaneous in the programme on NDTV. Some of the answers were like this, on heroines who suited him more, “Divya Bharti though I had done one film (Bobbili Raja) with her, Soundarya and Sridevi, Trisha recently from AMAV.”

When asked about his father’s stint in politics, “I’m in no position to advise anyone, each one should make their own decisions, politics though is not my cup of tea. Yes, he did wonders for his constituency when he was there and for his age, and he being a clean and honest man, things worked out fine. But he is different and I’m different.”

He adds, “I used to watch him since I was a kid, so I see myself more as a producer or a production manager. Acting was just incidental. Direction is too much of a burden for me. I’m close enough with all my technicians and directors and I sometimes give them suggestions, they are happy to take it.”

When asked about the third generation of actors coming into the industry from his family he talks of Arjun his son. “He already has fans associations, they keep writing letters to him. I don’t mind he becoming an actor but he should first go through the regular grinding of education.”

“Two years down the line I find myself doing a bilingual a Telugu-Tamil film, and later a Hindi movie perhaps, maybe some character role a tough cop from South getting into Mumbai or a lawyer, it should be a mature stuff. I can’t do entertainment and comedy, love stories any more, people won’t enjoy it.”

Power Star-Trivikram film in full swing

Devisri Prasad has already composed three rocking tunes on par with Pawan Kalyan’s standard and is finally eager to give the best output as it is his first film with PK. That leaves us with one question about Ramana Gogula. Once a regular with Kalyan’s movies this time he has been given some rest. Some of Pawan Kalyan’s films without Gogula are Kushi, Gudumba Shankar, Balu, Bangaram, current Kalyan film and after the not-so-impressive Annavaram audio Kalyan has preferred Devisri Prasad.

We all know Kalyan involves in all the departments and takes care of every minute detail, and after the completion of Annavaram he started giving time to the script session and after complete satisfaction he has now commenced the shooting.

Raviteja’s film with Vinayak confirmed

Ravi Teja has just okayed a project with VV Vinayak to be produced by Cable TV Kasi and this will be taken up immediately after Dubai Seenu. Trisha will be the female lead.

Earlier there was a news that Vinayak trying his hand in production with venkatesh. But as of now the idea is shelved and project with ravi teja is confirmed. Hope this movie will make Vinayak a good come back after a debacle Yogi.

That's the debut of him into Bollywood. The proposals are concluded and agreements were signed on this project. The casting is yet to be chosen and that will be announced shortly.
So Vaitla is growing as director on National level as well. We have to see if he makes his way to Bollywood if this film turns successful.

Hero Clarified He Has No Relation With Her

A few weeks ago a gossip has seen light that a senior 'Doctor-Actor' was having relationship with a late character artiste's daughter, who was working in Lagadapati's camp.
Knowing about this, last week, the hero condemned this way with one of his close friends: "I had many cheap relations with many. But alleging me in this relation with her is wrong. There is no such 'relation' between that lady and me. We are good friends and that's all. That gossip disturbed me a lot".
Well, in his condemning he openly admitted that he had many relations with many. That's really bold talk without any hypocrisy. But pity, now the hero is undergoing psychiatry treatment in Chennai.

Lakshyam Movie Stills

Producer M S Raju and Aata team are in celebrating mood. M S Raju threw a huge party on Wednesday night as the film has got encouraging response from urban areas. M S Raju gave the party for his team members. He also celebrated his birthday on Thursday with joy.

He is confident that Aata will become big hit this summer.

Can Ram Charan Teja Be Giga Star?

Can Charan Teja, the son of Chiranjeevi, be called Giga star? If his dad is Mega Star, he should be called Giga Star, as he not only succeeds Chiranjeevi, but also surpasses him. Director Puri Jagannath is shooting Charan's maiden film in different countries to add richness to the film. Along with Puri's favorite land, Bangkok, he shot scenes in Malaysia and Singapore.

The newly released working stills of Charan have given more hopes to Chiru's admirers. Charn wears sharp looks in these stills. Chiru's admirers would worry whether his mantle would fall on Allu Arjun, his nephew, alone. Now they are confident that Charan can really succeed his father.

EVV's next film in second week of June

The shooting of a film to be directed by EVV Satyanarayana and produced by Narasimha Rao on the banner of Raasi Movies with Allari Naresh and Kamalini Mukherjee in the lead would be launched in the second week of June.
Search is on for another hero in the film and Uday Kiran's name is under consideration.
Speaking on the occasion EVV says, 'I am very happy that the audiences made 'Attili Sattibabu LKG' a big hit. My next film would be coming up from Raasi Movies banner. That would be a complete family sentiment film. I am sure that the film would stand by the films like 'Aayanaki Iddaru' and 'Aame', which earned me a good name as director. Though the film would have my mark of comedy, the sentiment would touch the hearts of audiences. I am also planning to produce a film with Aryan Rajesh as hero under the direction of a youthful director.'

'Chiruta' on Megastar's b'day

Puri Jagannath had his crew had returned from Bangkok with their precious commodity- Ramcharan Theja, s/o Megastar Chiranjeevi. The crew was shooting Ramcharan's debut film, 'Chiruta'.
The film's second schedule is now on in Hyderabad. Newcomer Neha, who had until now only been involved in modeling, makes her debut with this one. Puri Jagannath says that the film is an action-romance fare. Soon after completing the second schedule, the unit will return to Pattaya and Bangkok again to complete their third schedule.
'Chiruta' will be released on the 22nd of August this year, which also happens to be Chiranjeevi's birthday.
Attempts are now on to avoid clashing with the release of 'Shankardada Zindabad'. Chiranjeevi wants a gap of atleast one month between the releases of both these films. That means that 'Shankardada...' might hit the theatres in the last week of June. Most of the film's shooting had already ended. There are only a few more scenes and post-production works to be completed.

Trisha is a fan of Pawan Kalyan

Trisha won the hearts of Telugu audiences with her performance in 'Varsham'. Later, she bagged Nandi award from the Government of Andhra Pradesh for 'Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana'.
Trisha remained a synonym to victory. When Trisha is there in the film, the chances of success would be bright.
She was standing atop the list of Telugu heroines by giving hits like 'Athadu' with Maheshbabu and 'Stalin' with Chiranjeevi. Very recently, she played opposite Venkatesh for 'Aadavari Maatalaku Ardhale Verule' and that film was also a hit.
Sharing her joy for the success of the film, Trisha says, 'I am very happy for the success of 'Aadavari Maatalaku Ardhale Verule'. Especially I have got 100 per cent marks for my character in the second half. It is a good experience to work with Venkatesh. I am a die-hard fan of Pawan Kalyan. I like him very much. I would like to do a full-length character with him.'

'Lakshyam' to be released in June

Climax shoot is in progress for a film being produced by Nallamalupu Srinivas (Bujji) on the banner of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Productions introducing Srivasu as director with mass and dynamic hero Gopichand and Anushka in the lead.
It is reliably learnt that 'Lakshyam' was considered as the title of the movie.

Producer Bujji says, 'How a youth, who was basically a college student, solved a problem faced by him in his lifetime. In addition to this, how he ensured that no others would face a similar problem in the society is the basic theme of the film. It would be a film with different shade in Gopichand's film career. Likewise, the director designed the character of the heroine in a different manner, where Anushka would also have a good scope to perform, instead of mere shaking legs with the hero and restrict herself to fill the glamour slot. Manisharma scored music for the movie. We are planning to launch the audio by the end of May or in the first week of June, while the film would be released in June itself.'

Aata Review

Story: Siddarth plays Sri Krishna, his father works in a theatre, so he is interested in movies. Iliyana plays Sathya who is being chased by rowdies. Sri Krishna meets Sathya at Antarvedi, Sathya tells him that she is being chased by rowdies and that she has to go to Kakinada. Sri Krishna promises her to take her to Kakinada. In the mean time she starts liking him. She tells him about her flashback "Home ministers son Vikki(Munna) rapes and kills her friend so she protests against him... so he tries to take revenge on her by marrying her ...". But he takes her to Hyderabad and hands her over to Vikki .
First Half is good although interval scene is a big let down.Second half is entertaining specially the comedy scenes between Sunil and Jaya Prakash Reddy. The rest of the story is how Sri Krishna saves her and wins her lady love ... Story has some shades of Gudumba Shankar...

Catch it:Iliyana's glamour, Songs and Excellent cinematography.

Picturization : At Top Notch. specially cinematography by Chota.K.Naidu.

Songs :Title song(Aata Aata) is excellent, Hoyna number is entertaining. All Others are just watchable.Iliyana sizzles in all songs.

Artists : Siddarth as Sri Krishna performed very well. Iliyana as Sathya, looks good, better than in previous ones.

Skip it :Screenplay is bad.Though second half has some very good comedy scenes , but the climax is not much convincing.

Spiderman ‘earns’ Rs 19.17 crore in India !

‘Spiderman 3’ sure seems to have cast a magical web and raked in the moolah at the Indian box office. According to reports the film has managed to collect a whopping Rs 19.17 crore in the first weekend itself. The film released in five languages in India - English, Hindi, Bhojpuri, Tamil and Telugu, with 588 prints all over the country, and that seems to have done the trick, with the film drawing in more than what a majority of Hindi films would do in the same time.

Rs 55 crore for Shah Rukh Starrer Om Shanthi Om?

If you thought Bollywood films compare poorly with Hollywood films especially where the moolah involved is concerned, think again. Here's a bit of news that will surprise you. Apparently, rumour has it that the Shah Rukh starrer 'Om Shanti Om' is creating huge ripples in distribution circles. One persistent birdie tells us that SRK's company Red Chillies Entertainment has been offered a mind-boggling Rs 55 crore for the worldwide distribution rights along with satellite, audio and home video rights for the next ten years. The film is being made on a budget of Rs 15 crore, and this means a clear Rs 40 crore profit on the table – even before the film's release!

When quizzed on this bit of rumour, Farah Khan who is directing the film preferred to keep mum on the issue. "I'm not at liberty to disclose...," was all Farah said, "Shah (Shah Rukh) handles the business side." If true, the film will beat even Nikhil Advani's 'Salaam-E-Ishq', a multi-cast film including Salman Khan, which was reportedly sold for 45 crore (all rights mentioned above).

Nayanatara to pair up with Vishal

Vishal gave continuous hits like 'Prema Chadarangam, Pandem Kodi, Pogaru and Bharani', which were dubbed into Telugu. He earned a fixed place in the hearts of Telugu youth. It is well aware that a straight Telugu film was planned with him recently.
The film is being produced by Vikram Krishna on the banner of GK Entertainments. It is learnt that Nayanatara had signed the dotted line to pair up with Vishaal in this film. It is further learnt that a popular director is going to direct the movie.
This would be the first-ever combination for Vishal and Nayanatara. Like Vishal's earlier films, this would also be a different film with action backdrop.
Producer Vikram Krishna says, 'We kept Vishal's mass image in view while preparing and okaying the story for the movie. Those who watched the film would get an opinion that such a film could be done only by Vishal. We are planning to launch the film in June and release it as a Sankranthi gift. We wish the Telugu audiences would make the film a big hit.'
Chances are bright that Yuvan Shankar Raja might provide tunes for the movie.

Preview Aata

Censor formalities were completed for 'Aata' directed by VN Aditya and produced by MS Raju on the banner of Sumanth Art Productions with Siddhartha and Ileana in the lead.
The film bagged clean U/A certificate from the Censor Board.
The film is all set for release with over 150 prints on May 9. The film has music from Devisri Prasad and the audio of the film was released into the market recently through Aditya and Maruthi Music companies, while the cassettes were being sold like hotcakes.
Producer MS Raju says, 'Our film had a good social message 'If you have the courage to achieve, even a battle is like a game. (Sadhinche Satta Vunte Samarame Oka Sayyata). It is a full-length entertainer. Like 'Okkadu' remained a trendsetter, this film would be another trendsetter. Hero Siddhartha is like my son. He kept so much effort on the film and is quite valuable. Our heroine Ileana would look quite romantic in our film. Like the Bollywood classic 'Bobby', this film too had romantic scenes aplenty. Sunil's comedy had come out well. The film had all kinds of elements and the audiences would have the feel of drinking Baadaam Milk in a hot summer while watching 'Aata'.

Tanikella Bharani, Mukesh Rishi and few fighters participated in this shooting for the last 2 days. Pawan Kalyan will attend the sets from tomorrow on. Stunt master Vijay is composing this action episode. Ileana is the heroine and Devisri Prasad is composing music.

Don leaves for Austria

The latest schedule of Don, directed by Raghava Lawrence and produced by M.L. Kumar Choudary under the banner of Sri Keerthi Creations with Nagarjuna and Anushka in the lead, was completed at Hyderabad recently. This is the second film by the Nagarjuna and Lawrence team after Mass. A song was canned in a specially erected set in Ramoji Film City, besides some action scenes. Presently, the unit is in Austria to can some songs. The director made it clear right in the beginning that there are no similarities of the Bollywood Don and this film. Lawrence says, 'In fact, the Bollywood people would remake our Don in Hindi. The entire story and its movement would be very different.' Another speciality is that Lawrence himself is providing tunes for the movie. Camera is by S. Gopal Reddy and dialogues are by Abburi Ravi.

Shankardada Zindabad Release in Oct.

Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Shankaradada Zindabad is progressing at brisk pace. But buzz is that the film would not release until Dussera. Chiranjeevi, the doted father that he is, is more worried about his son Ram Charan Teja’s career than his films now. He wants Ram Charan Teja’s maiden film, Chirutha, be smoother one as expectations are on high.
Though Puri Jagannadh is making the film with superb script and is taking every care to make it a big film, Chiranjeevi also taking keen interest on the progress of the film on daily basis.
Insiders say, megastar wants to have atleast 100 days gap between Chirutha and Shankardada Zindabad. As Chirutha would release on August 22nd, it is clear that Shankardada Zindabad can only hit the screens in late October.
It is also reliably learnt that "Munna Bhai - 3" may release before "ShankarDada - 2"

‘Raju Bhai’ on 18th May With 200 Prints

In that, street irrespective of elders or younger everybody likes ‘Raju Bhai’ and they extend their love and affection on him. Similarly, he also treats everybody as his own people. Hence one glamorous girl throws her love net on her, did he caught in that love net? If he falls then what are the difficulties he faced is suspense said by upcoming hero Manoj Kumar. He acted as main lead with glass cut figure Sheela playing opposite to him in the film RAJU BHAI’.

On the banner of Sri Laksmi Prasanna Pictures Padma Shri Dr. M Mohan Babu is producing under the direction of Surya kiran. In this connection, he says super hit film ‘Sittaram Pesudadi’ in Tamil is remaking in Telugu. The audio released recently got tremendous response.

The unit is planning to release the film with 200 prints on 18th of this month. Giri Babu, Tanikella Bharani, Brahmanandam, Sunil, Dharmavarapu, Mallikharjuna Rao, Raghu Babu, Suman Shetty, Dhandayudapani, Rajeev Kanakala and others performed in this film.

Trisha in Rajini's Next ?

Just when everybody thought that Trisha was finished in Telugu because she was not accepting any new offers in Tollywood, she is now back with 'AMAV'! She looks so beautiful and graceful in the film that it is going to be a long time before the audience loses its interest in her.
Ever since Rajinikanth completed shooting his 'Shivaji' talks have started about his new projects. Speculations have already started about the heroine of this film.
Asin was very keen on becoming his heroine in 'Shivaji'. So was Trisha. But Rajinikanth surprised everybody by bringing in Shriya. This time around, many are convinced that Trisha just might become his heroine.
The fact that she is concentrating exclusively on Tamil increases the possibility.
Today, the 4th of May, happens to be her birthday. Tollywood's birthday present to her is the very successful 'Adavari Mataluku Ardhale Verule'.
She is also the heroine of Tamil actor Vijay's new film.

Spider Man-3 Not Upto Expectations

It is darker and more complex than its two predecessors but does it mean Spider-Man 3 will transport the audiences to thrilling new heights? The law of diminishing returns has certainly hit the new Spidey but faithful audiences could still find the film, which reportedly cost over $200 million, engrossing, especially in the last 15 minutes when Spiderman fights not one but two villains.
At least one of those villains, the Sandman, overshadows the film's hero on many occasions. The transformation of an ordinary mortal into the Sandman is one of the new film's most dramatic scenes.
There is a clear difference in the way the two villains are presented. While we see the birth of Sandman about 30 minutes into the film, the rebirth of photographer Eddie Brock into greedy and superman villain called Venom takes place only in the second half.

Sam Raimi, who directed the previous installments, returns to the franchise with the key players intact but adds Thomas Haden Church as the unusual Sandman and Topher Grace as a shameless photographer Eddie Brock whose greed turns him into a monster.
With much emphasis on creating a conflicting web of emotions for Peter Parker and his super ego, the film suffers on the action front. And yet, one would not have complained had the film's darker side and complexities been brought out well. For most part though, Raimi cannot give the proceedings depth. Everything looks sincere but there is no real conviction in the emotional display. There are no moments that stab one's heart or quicken ones pulse.
Even though many of the performances, especially by Tobey Magurie in the title role, and Kirsten Dunst as his love interest, are adequate, they do not endow the film with anything memorable.

Everyone including Peter Parker (the karmic avatar of Spider-Man), his girlfriend Mary Jane Watson and friend Harry Osborn go through motions of trust, betrayal and redemption but in a shallow way. And the sketchiness of the whole thing becomes tiresome after a while, and you almost start praying that Spider-Man be summoned to save a life or two instead of trying to save his own soul.
When the movie opens, Peter Parker, who still lives in a ramshackle building and has problems paying his rent and get a permanent job as newspaper photographer, seems to be secretly enjoying his success as an angel for the distressed.

But when a black substance mysteriously clings to his scooter, things begin to change for the worse, starting with the transformation of the familiar red and blue suit to a deep black. Along with that, Peter becomes stronger but also greedy and callous. He is not surprised when his beloved aunt (Rosemary Harris, a brilliant actress in a small but well performed part) gives a small lecture on the evil of revenge.

Along with Maguire and Dunst, James Franco also picks up from the end of Spider-Man 2 where he learned the truth (at least in part) about his father. A troubled soul, he loves his friend Peter Parker but also feels compelled to avenge his father's death.

To add to the complications, Mary Jane becomes increasingly insecure and is worried by the attention Spider-Man gets from another young woman (Bryce Dallas Howard, last seen in M Night Shyamalan's Lady in the Water). Like many other performers specially the Oscar nominated James Cromwell (Babe), she too is wasted in the film.

Spider-Man 3 has kicked in the lucrative summer season. But one doesn't think that other big budget films in the pipeline should worry too much about the new Spidey stealing the business from them in the coming weeks.
