Shamili’s Telugu Choice

She hit the headlines with her swimming pool act in her recent film Adhineta. The real story is that Hamsa Nandini was actually playing a tough cop in the film and the tall and svelte beauty was also seen doing some tough stunts and beating up the baddies in the film. So how did the pretty face land up with a tough role like this? The flashback is that at the audition, Hamsa was almost an immediate choice. The lady is tall and while auditioning for the stunt scenes she took less than 2 minutes to impress the film makers. So we can see the pretty and slender Hamsa getting tough in the film. Let us hope this action and hot blooded image of hers gives her few more projects and shape up her career.

Akshay jumps from 10th floor!

On Thursday evening, in Delhi to promote Kambakkht Ishq, Akshay decided to conduct a press conference in a unique way.

He opted to join the melee of press persons at the Citywalk mall by jumpimg down from the 10th floor.

Laughs Akshay, “I think everyone was bored with just the routine questions and answers. So I decided to make the get-together exciting for both the parties at the press meet and for the onlookers.”

Wasn’t it dangerous to jump down from such a high altitude? “All precautions were taken. Besides what’s life without taking risks?” quips Akshay.

Saif's changed after Kareena: Deepika

 Deepika does full-fledged comedy in Sajid Khan's Houseful.

"It's not just a few comic scenes here and there. It's a hardcore comic role. And I wonder how I'll manage it. Main koshish karungi. Sajid has a great sense of humour and I'd go by his vision. Sajid just told me to follow him. If my director has so much confidence in me I can't let him down."

Problem is, Deepika has a very sober image. "But that doesn't mean I don't have a sense of fun. I plan to have a ball doing Houseful. I'm a reserved person in real life. But that doesn't mean I can't be funny for the camera."

So after working with sister Farah it's bro Sajid. "I'm very fond of both of them. At a time when the entertainment industry
wasn't too confident of me Farah trusted me completely. She didn't even audition me. Farah was the one who spotted in me a talent and actually cast me opposite Shah Rukh."

She has worked with all the older actors Shah Rukh, Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan before coming to co-stars her own age group.

Aishwarya gets Karate training

aishwaryaRajnikant’s mega budget next Endhiran starring him along side Aishwarya Rai seems to have garnered a lot of curiosity as the makers are keeping the production a close guarded secret. But the audience interest about it seems to be multiplying day by day as inside details are being leaked out. We managed to find out one such inside info about Aishwarya Rai’s character in the film.Our sources reveal, “After having learnt sword fights for her English movie The Last Legion, Aishwarya has been training herself in Karate for Endhiran.
A noted stunt master Ramesh who has been running a Japan Shito-Ryu karate school in the South for over 30 years, which is affiliated to the World Karate Federation is training the actress for the movie. Ramesh is teaching Aishwarya the basics of Karate for now. In the movie Aishwarya Rai and the other girls in the film will be learning Karate from her hero. Rajnikant is already trained in Karate so he will not have to train himself. Some interesting scenes were shot recently in the VIT University in Chennai.Aishwarya Rai has always been a quick learner.Even during the making of the The Last Legion Aishwary Rai had trained herself in the sword fight.
She took her skills forward in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Jodhaa Akbar. Her trainers have always been enamoured by her quick learning skills. Apparently Ramesh was also charmed that the actress was able to repeat the karate movements easily.Ramesh has also acted in Mani Rathnam’s Iruvar (1997) which was Aishwarya Rai’s first ever film. He has also acted in over 400 movies made in South India since 1986 with almost all the leading heroes of Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam languages.

Hiten Tejwani, friends train Rakhi's men

 These celebrity guests aided 13 grooms to hone their talents. Hiten honed the acting skills of Pranav and Kripal... whereas Deepak mentored the dancing talent of Elesh, Ali, Atirek, Manas, Raman and Chittiz while Raja Hassan explained the nitty-gritty of music to Kapil, Ather, Manmohan and Ashwin. Considering Rakhi is a performer herself she would like to see glimpses of talent in her would be husband too. So the men of honor quickly split into three groups to give their performance of a life time.

The shy Kapil Mathur from Jaipur surprised everyone with a whole-hearted interpretation of ‘Choo Kar Mere Mann Ko’ and Ather Parvez from Kashmir sang ‘Main Shayar Toh Nahin’ in the most romantic manner for Rakhi. Not far was our NRI Guju boy, Elesh Parujanwala impressed every one with his Punjabi moves to ‘Dil le Gayi Kudi’. Pranav Damle and Kripal Singh from Mumbai also wooed Rakhi with their acting skills...

Boni Movie Review

With the sole objective of starting a ‘Pulihora’ centre in their lives, two orphans DD (sumanth) and Chinna (trinetrudu) grow up together and they join the gang of Giri (tanikella) as recovery guys. Fights, street brawls and other rugged things become their agenda and soon DD wants to take a higher step so he decides to join the more ruthless Das (jayaprakash).

Sumanth was repetitive, though nothing special about his act but he carried it well. Krithi was stunningly beautiful and looked hot in the songs. Tanikella, Ahuti, Jayaprakash were the senior cast and did their bit well but their role could have been chalked even better, Trinetrudu was natural and showed potential, Chandramohan was regular, the others did not have much to add.

Evaraina Epudaina Movie Review


Madhumita (vimala) is a beautiful girl with an even more beautiful heart. She looks after the old age home and also has a granny (Rama Prabha). One day, her granny meets with an accident and she lands up in hospital and this accident is caused due to Venkat (varun) who also has a granny admitted into the hospital due to this. Venkat falls in love with her and he is a happy go lucky guy who takes things easily. Venkat uses his brains and slowly, he is successful in getting Madhu’s attention. However, he does a small mistake and this results in the break up of engagement of Madhu’s sister Bhargavi (reshmi) and Venkat knows he is the cause for it and wants to make up for it. Soon, the truth comes out and Madhu breaks her relation with Venkat. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.


Varun Sandesh did a good job given his versatile performance and he was there on the screen for almost 90% and carried himself well. Vimala Raman looked truly gorgeous and she had a lot of sex appeal in her which will make her good for glamour roles too.  Kota was brief, Anu Haasan was neat, Giri Babu was upto the standard, Surekha Vani was okay, both Venu Madhav and Ali did their bit to generate comedy, Reshmi looked beautiful and Rahul was also quite brief. The others like Rama Prabha, Sakuntala, Kovai Sarala, Radha Kumari, Brahmanandam just came and went.

Sneha Ullal is feeling the heat

The Bombay girl Sneha Ullal is feeling the heat as she wants to be as successful as her compatriots from Mumbai. The actress is seeing the success of Hansika Motwani and Tamannah and is yearning to be as successful as them. The actress who has had moderate success in Ulhasamga Utsahanga has a certain image in Tollywood. She is as yet perceived as the cute girl and now she wants to break free of that image to go a few notches up in the popularity charts.
The actress is ready for anything to be more successful and as an initial first step she is going ballistic in her expose in her next film Current. She has also signed a new Kannada film with Upendra. Insider news is that she will be seen in a two piece bikini in that film.
Sneha is reported approached many producers with an open offer to do raunchy scenes in films. Let’s see how best this beauty would capture audience hearts in the days to come!!

The shooting of this film is happening at a brisk pace.  It would be interesting to see whether Surya’s playback singing succeeds in creating any kind of magic or not.

neninthe Ravi (Ravi Teja) is a struggling assistant director who works for a mediocre director ‘Idly’ Viswanadh (modeled after self-deprecating ‘Puri’ Jagannadh). Ravi lives with his mother (Rama Prabha) who is suffering from cancer. Sandhya (Siya) is a struggling side dancer who aspires to become a heroine. She is harassed by her brother-in-law (Krishna Bhagawan) who acts more like a broker. Yaadu (Supreet) is a goon who harasses Sandhya. The rest of the story is all about how Ravi and Sandhya realize their dreams.
Artists Performance
nenintheRavi Teja: Ravi Teja, who is known for his hyperactive energy with lots of attitude, gave a subdued performance in this film. There is lot of honesty and intensity in certain scenes enacted by him. His dialogue delivery is also slow compared to his earlier films; that’s why dialogues like ‘tuduchukunte pothundanukunte…’ and ‘road meda penta…’ are clearly audible in this film compared to Ravi Teja’s earlier films.
nenintheOthers: Actress Siya is appropriate for the role of a side actress who becomes heroine at a later point of time. Subbaraju stands out with excellent performance though he imitated Mahesh Babu at times. Mumaith Khan enacted herself as a heroine in this film. She is adequate. Supreet excels in the role of the main villain. Sayaji Shinde is very good as the hapless Telugu movie producer. Brahmanandam is hilarious as a mediocre director and he provides some entertainment. Krishna Bhagawan is good as the nasty guy. Venu Madhav is hilarious in ‘Tamil director’ get up and in the ‘deep shit’ episode. Sairam Shankar is nice as the fans president. MS Narayana, Satyam Rajesh and Rama Prabha are fair. VV Vinayak donned the guest role of himself. Ali – the aasthana comedian of Puri Jagan’s movies – is conspicuously absent in this movie.

Nagarjuna’s Telugu Movie King Review

Music Director: Devi Sri Prasad

King aka Raja Chandrapratap Varma (Nagarjuna), heir apparent to late Raja Varma, takes over the business of his father after his death and works hard to live up to his father’s name. He has kid brother (Deepak) too and lives with large family consisting of his mom (Geeta) and uncles and their family members. On his business trip to Uttaranchal, he is killed by Swapna (Mamta Mohandas) aided by King’s archrival. Enters Bottu Seenu, a street rowdy, a look-alike of King. Bottu Seenu falls in love with Sravani (Trisha) an aspiring singer who is also sister to don Jnaneshwar (Srihari). To impress Sravani, Bottu Seenu gets introduced himself to her as a software engineer called Sharat. The rest of the movie unravels the mystery behind the killing of King, and the identity of Bottu Seenu.


With three hit movies under his belt – Dhee, Dubai Seenu and Ready, director Sreenu Vytla has garnered the image of a good entertainer. He dishes out another masala entertainer this time with ‘Manmadhudu’ Nagarjuna. King is a pucca commercial formula movie designed to cater to the entertainment seeking audiences. It succeeds tickling your funny bone in most scenes. The first half is breezy and has funny moments with a spoof on music director Chakri (Brahmananadam’s character).

The best part are some hilarious situations, romantic drama between Trisha and Nag, and Srihari’s characterization.

Both of them study in a residential college located at a small town of Godavari district. Balu and Swapna fall in love. Swapna is withdrawn from the residential school because her father comes to know about her love. The rest of the story is all about how Balu and Swapna try to get back to each other.

Artists Performance

koth bangaru lokamMain leads: Varun Sandesh shows improvement in this film compared to his debut in Happy Days. He suited the character of the film very well and he needs to work strongly on getting diction right. His boyish charm wins you over. Sweta Basu Prasad (award winning child actress from Iqbal film) is very good and she perfects her role with her childlike innocent look. However, there is a bit of inconsistency in the dubbing in the initial part of the film.

kotha bangaru lokamOther actors: Jayasudha and Prakash Raj play a perfect couple like they did in Bommarillu film. However, Jayasudha's role is more meaningful and vital in this film. Ahuti Prasad is good as the father of heroine. Rao Ramesh who impressed everybody in his radical portrayal in Gamyam did the key character of a lecturer in the film. He is very good though he appears to have gone little over board in the class room scenes. This film has lots of fresh faces as friends of hero and heroine. And all of them are natural and add some value to the film. Brahmanandam character offers variety.

After coming home she realizes that her marriage is fixed with an NRI and her wedding is due that night. She also learns that the groom’s father is money-minded. She has no choice left but to run away. She meets Anand (Tarun) on her journey. He protects her and helps her. The rest of the story is all about the background of Anand and what happens between the couple.

Artists Performance

sasirekha parinayam Genelia: You would see an entirely different Genelia in this film. She did not wear any make-up. She is completely child-like and playfully innocent. It appears like she dubbed her own voice in certain scenes of the film. Her hysterical performance when she is slapped shows another shade of her. And her performance in the scene in which she banters after getting drunk is very good. She gave wide variety of expressions in this film.

sasirekha parinayam Others: Tarun plays the second fiddle. But his performance in the hospital scene in the climax is ultimate. Ahuti Prasad scores again in this film. But his usage of expletives at end his dialogue is little discomforting to ears. Subbaraju dons a refreshing (away from his usual roles) role in this film. He is excellent. Paruchuri Gopala Krishna is extremely good as the villainous elder. Abhi did a significant role. Monali Chowdary is good in a cameo. MS Narayana is excellent in the tax-payers episode. Vamsi (Paiditalli from Happy Days) has a small, but interesting role

arundhati Arundhati (Anushka) belongs to Gadwal samsthanam in 1920’s. She is known for her bravery in saving the Samstanam by killing Pasupathi (Sonu Sood) an evildoer who creates ruckus in that place. She is praised as Jejemma (named after the famous Goddess in that area). But the spirit of Pasupathi haunts that place. Another girl is born in the same lineage after 3 generations and she is named as Arundhati. The spirit of Pasupati is after Arundhati to take the revenge. The rest of the story is all about how Arundhati puts an end to the evil spirit of Pasupathi.

Artists Performance

arundhati Anushka: This is Anushka’s first performance oriented film and she is simply amazing in two roles. There are many shots in the film where the scenes from the present time will dissolve into to flashback and vice versa. These scenes are done on Anushka are crucial in the film. She has to show the variations between the old Arundhati and new Arundhati. She did exceptionally well with subtle yet impact creating performance. Shilpa and Sowmya dubbed the voices of old and new characters respectively.

arundhati Others: Sonu Sood looks deadly in the role of Aghora. His performance is excellent. A special mention should be given to P Ravi Shankar who dubbed the voice of Sonu Sood. It is a great opportunity for any dubbing artists to get a role like this. The way he pronounces ‘ninnu vadalaa … vasta .. vasta’ is extremely good. Sayaji Shinde got a beautiful role ‘Talla Sayibu’ in this film. He is completely believable in that role. Manorama is very good. Deepak is nice. Satyanarayana and others are good. All other artists are appropriately cast in their roles.

Gudumba Shankar - Review

  • Pawan Kalyan is back again! For those who missed his mannerisms and styles with macho appeal for quite sometime, here is a treat. Director Veera Shankar tried his best to elevate the best of Pawan Kalyan. Pawan Kalyan looked all charming and will definitley impress his fans. The film also runs the credits of Pawan Kalyan for screenplay. That's right for screenplay also. Not only that! But Powerstar Pawan Kalyan's name appears in two other categories too - "Action Sequence and Choreography, Songs concept and visualization".

  • Coming to the storyline, Gudumba Shankar (Pawan Kalyan) is a rough and tough guy. Street bred, Gudumba Shankar will do anything for money. He helps Demudu (Kota), a police-officer, in handling the under world but inturn takes his share. This way he becomes a hurdle for all the bad things being done by Bejawada Narayana (Shiyaji Shindey). Demudu (Kota) is a police officer, who takes the help of Gudumba Shankar in this case. In one particular instance, they suspect that one of the henchman (Ponnambalam) is killed by Gudumba Shankar. Demudu advices Gudumba Shankar to go away for some time. So Gudumba Shankar starts off to Vizag. On the way he meets Gowri (Meera Jasmine). She is trying to run away from house to avoid a forceful marriage to Kumara Swami (Ashish Vidyarthi). Kumaraswami is a blind follower of astrology. He is adviced by Guruvugaru (Brahmanandam) that he would become a "king" if he married Gowri. Gudumba Shankar tries to save Gowri from goons and falls in love with her. By the time he is ready to propose, she is taken away by Kumaraswami. Gudumba Shankar decides to get her with his logic than his power magic. So he settles in Kumara Swami's house and deals with the situation that makes Kumaraswami feel that Gowri is more of bad luck to him than good. How does Gudumba manage to do that? This is the best part and should be seen on the silver screen.
  • Gudumba Shankar is a comedy-oriented film. The film totally banks on comedy and to most of the extent comedy is done by Pawan Kalyan himself. He just strolls his way. His impressions of other actors are pretty good. Especially in the scenes when his "Bangaram" car is broken, Venu Madhav eating biryani, and Ashish Vidyarthi leaving the place.

The relevance of his name Gudumba is only explained once that his father used to make Gudumba. First half goes on with entertainment. There are three good songs and some comedy. Second half paces better than the first half. Some parts in the first half could have been cut shorter. Lorry chasing scene and the scenes at the hotel with Gowri seemed to be a bit dragged. The songs that come in the first are picturized pretty well. And also all the three songs come in situtational. First song Le le le almost feels like Kushi first song. Killi Killi song has Natanya Singh shaking leg with Pawan Kalyan. Chiguraku chatu song is good both in terms of lyrics and visual.

Second half of the film paces with hillarious scenes. Rajan P Dev (uncle of Kumaraswami) going mentally insane, Gudumba Shankar making Kumaraswami do weights with background song of Travelling soldier from Thammudu and many more scenes like these attract the audience well.

Emantaaro song is pictured very well. However, the highlight song of the film is Chittinadumuney chooshtunna. Though the size of Meera Jasmine in this film dont fit the expression "Chittinadumu", the song is pictured pretty amazing too.

The film, though lacks good story and is targeted to be a complete entertainer. Director Veerashankar concentrated more on Pawan Kalyan, lookslike. However, the fights in the film are not completely "Pawan Kalyan fights". But When he handles bunch of goons, it looks very realisitc. Good thing is there are no visual effects used in the fights, which became a regular norm in the recent films. The fight that is shot in the forest stands out the best in the film.

Performance wise every artist gave out their best. The highlight of the film is Pawan Kalyan though. After Jhonny this is his film and he did his best to keep his fans excited. He took the whole movie as one-man-show. Be it songs, fights, comedy - it's just the flow for him. Also he hums a Srikakulam tune in his own style. His funky style are evident in the song Chitti nadumuney choosthunna. His macho mannerisms and his slang are impressive.

Meera Jasmine looked total traditional Telugu girl. She has gained weight compared to her earlier films. She did her role very well. Ali and Brahmanandam did their roles well. Brahmanandam performed some good comedy. Ashish Vidhyarthi as comedy-villain and Shiyaji Shindey are apt in their roles.

Technically the best parts of the film are cinematography and music. Chota K. Naidu captured every frame as a beautiful scenary. Every scene bore a rich look. Music by Manisharma is pretty good. The songs are picturized differently. Donot expect some hi-fi steps! Mani Sharma did a decent job with the background too. Editing by Yousuf Khan is good and he impresses with his work in the second half with fast cuts. Satyanand's dialogues are apt.

Story, screenplay and direction are to be scrutinized. Story by Satyanand is OK. The film, and thus few scenes, has the look of some previous films like Premante Idheraa, DDLJ. Screenplay is treated differently. Some of the scenes could be trimmed in length and a few could be removed too! Pawan Kalyan handled the screenplay. Director Veera Shankar focused more on elevating Pawan Kalyan than anything else. That forms the drawback and also the saving grace of the film. If not for Pawan Kalyan, the full fledged comedy and well pictured songs, talk would have suffered!.

Gudumba Shankar, overall, turns out to be an entertainer. As promised by Pawan Kalyan, to his fans, this is a total mass entertainer. He tried to be different in his own way and the way he is liked by his fans.


VICTORY by Nitin comes with a bang on the current prevailing land mafia in Hyderabad and other parts of the country. Director Ravi C. Kumar is the latest attempt is so much Morelowa key, but in terms of history, content, focus, Manus andperformances it was a hundred times better.

Prayanam Movie Review

Boy meets girl in an airport and it’s love at first sight. He has just two hours to woo her. One may think this is implausible but director Chandrasekhar Yeleti makes it possible in the Telugu movie Prayanam.

The journey the boy traverses in making the girl fall in love in a nutshell forms the story of the film. In a sense, it’s the journey of life too for both of then.

Dhruv (Manoj), a MBA graduate, lands in Malaysia with his two friends on a holiday enroute to Singapore. He runs into Harika (Payal Ghosh who is rechristened as Harika) at the airport while he’s trying to win a bet with his friend as he’s trying to blow a feather without it falling down. He is smitten by her and then decides to strike a friendship with her. He overhears her talking — that she has to meet a prospective groom in Hyderabad and decide about marriage. Realising that he has just over two hours to court her (as her flight to Hyderabad is delayed) he tries various ways and means, hatching plans with the help of his friends. Harika initially is polite and later gets irritated at the sight of him. She even says she hates him. Does hate at first sight lead to love at second sight?

Chandrasekhar Yeleti works on a thin premise but builds up the story pretty well. There are moments of humour, despair, frustration woven into the narrative. The story may seem run-of-the mill in terms of a love story but he infuses some interest by setting it against a single backdrop — namely the Malaysia International Airport, Kuala Lumpur, by having songs in the background (thankfully there are no running around trees), and a slightly different approach towards romance.
There are moments when the pace does slacken but it picks up eventually. Known for his slightly different and hatke approach to cinema, Chandrasekhar Yeleti comes up with a commercial venture in a slightly refreshing vein. The character of Brahmanandam, albeit distracting at times, is humourous particularly in the scenes where he’s caught by the airport authorities and when he is chased by the African gentleman.

Termination Salvaged

Unique moniker-sporting movie director McG isn't really reputed for helming bleak and dramatic projects like the Terminator movies. Best known for his work on the re-imagination of Charlie's Angels (and music videos before that) his movies tend to be bright, frothy and kind of ridiculous.  
Terminator Salvation features only one of those three qualities and even as far as the ridiculous goes, enough people think it perfectly plausible that someday technology will become sentient and undertake to destroy all of mankind.

John was okay with the nude scene

He knew about it when he read the script and was okay with it. He has been stripped of his dignity in the scene. It's not to titilate the audience. He is a director's actor and does whatever the director asks him to. He has many powerful scenes. He sees the larger picture and places the film higher than the character.

A R Rahman paid tribute to pop idol Michael Jackson

I am shocked at the untimely passing away of Michael Jackson, one of the greatest musicians of our time. MJ, for most of our generation was an icon who made uncompromising music. He pushed the milestone of pop music to unbelievable levels
through the 8os and 90s. I am yet to find an artist with that energy, perfection and vision.

I met him personally after the Oscars   in Los Angeles and we vibed very well. He said that he loved India and the Indian people. He said he heard good things about me and he was praising the chord progression of Jai Ho's chorus.

New York is a sham

I must confess I'm not overtly familiar with America's controversial Patriot Act, so I wonder if I'm going to get into trouble for declaring that I feel the need to trash New York.

The movie, I mean, not the city.

Director Kabir Khan's new film tries hard to make a point, loses it in a weak, seemingly unending plot executed by a group of pretty performers each competing for a Worst Actor Award, and finally ends by spelling the name of President Barack Obama [Images] as Barrack. And all this nonsense in a film exasperatingly infatuated with slow-motion, so that even the lousy climax takes a while to kick in.
