Chirutha Review


The highly-anticipated movie Chirutha is released to a weak mother-son sentiment, but excellent dance and stunts performance by the debut Ram Charan. Everybody expected that Puri Jagannath will create another magic on the lines of a Pokiri, but he gave something which might resemble a Super thanks to his complete concentration on stylish presentation of the hero and caring least for the story. There is neither expectation nor curiosity.


Charan (Ram Charan) turns a juvenile convict and gets released after 12 years as a young and energetic revenge-seeker. In the flashback, his father (Surya) is murdered by a baddie (Asish Vidyarthi). Coming out of the jail, he gets the information that his mother was no more. Running parallel to his revenge motif, Charan also falls in love with Sanjana (Neha Sharma), daughter of a rich man Karthikeyan (Prakash Raj). Next step, he gets passport with the help of a police officer and goes to Bangkok and joins a travel agency. Sanjana along with her friends arrives in Bangkok as a tourist. Charan is her guide. A young baddie (new guy) teases Sanjana and misbehaves with her. Naturally, Charan makes a big fight and saves the girl. The screen couple-in-the-making escapes to an abandoned island off Bangkok. There, Charan reveals that he loved her. He also reveals that he has been in Bangkok to kill the killer of his father. The killer has graduated himself from a smalltime killer in Hyderabad to a notorious international criminal with network in Hong Kong and elsewhere. The guy who is after the modesty of Sanjana is none other than the son of the hero's prime target! Meanwhile, the girl's father is desperate to undo the love between the two. In the climax, hero's mother comes alive on the screen! How, the hero wins his Sanjana and kills his target and also gets united with his mom forms the crux of the story.


Ram Charan has rendered excellent performance in the dance and stunts departments. Considering the fact that Chirutha is his debut film and that he is the son of megastar Chiranjeevi, it would be too much to expect much from Ram Charan. He deserves rich appreciation for his energetic performance and commitment to reach the expectations of the audience. Definitely, he is successful in his first strike. The audiences are prone to a constant feel that Puri Jagannath has not touched upon the other aspects of histrionics other than action and dance. In several scenes, including climax, the words of the hero are heard as the audience will see either long or rear shots of the hero. Despite being a debut hero, he wonderfully bears the entire weight of the movie himself.

Neha Sharma is sensuous and shown in a hot mood from start to finish. True to the modern trend, she also did the glam doll stuff with little or nothing to do with the story. Her dances and hip shakes, particularly in the last song, is a good watch. However, her dialogue delivery would make her an alien to Telugu audience. The second (and also the last female role) is played by another lady (as the agonized mom to hero). The footage is limited to a single scene.

Asish Vidyarthi's villainy is dramatic. The artiste, who did the son to Asish, has a fresh look.

Ali alone could make considerable impact on the audiences in the role (a male who says he made himself a woman). The scene in which Ali touches Brahmanandam and hugs him has some comedy punch. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam has a lengthy footage in the film compared to his recent films. MS Narayana for the first time appears in a non-routine role in the film. Not a boozer! But a funny travel agency operator.

Prakash Raj's role is inadequate, and at the same time not much happening. He utters a couple of impressive dialogues. For instance... Better bring up a dog rather than a daughter. Sayaji Shinde appears in just a forgettable role as a police officer in a couple of scenes, running up to a minute or two each.

Babloo and Uttej played the friends to Ram Charan. But, the audience hardly remembers their roles.

Technical Details

The story is weak. Screenplay and direction by Puri Jagannath will sure disappoint the audience in a big way. Some of the scenes are routine, outdated, but shown with gloss.

Puri Jagannath tried to justify the title Chirutha through hero's words to the villain: "My looks are like Chirutha." The same looks are used at the heroine too!

The villains chasing the lovers and the latter escaping into a jungle-like location, followed by romance… This and all make better for nothing stuff. From start to finish, the links connecting the characters are just dramatic. First half is completely devoted to show the hero in action and dance. The second half brings some twists but to a standard climax.

The scene in which Puri Jagannath tried to establish the mother-son sentiment turns weak and evokes no pathos. Another scene of the gasping hero expressing his love to the heroine is pale. Both are just dramatic!

Comedy is inadequate. Dialogues are average. You can notice censoring (deleting) of the word Fuck through the heroine's lip-movement in silence.

Puri Jagannath repeated the Desamuduru scene in which the heroine shows her middle finger (a vulgar expression) to a baddy.

Music by Mani Sharma is an asset to the film. Picturisation of all songs are good, with maximum focus on the hero. Naturally! A majority of the eight songs turns speed breakers to the progression of yet a weak story.

Stunts by Vijayan have maximum punch in this film. The same wing can be taken as a plus point to the film.

Cinematography is good. Production values of Vyjayanti Movies are good.

Mahesh Athidi Audio Released in a Grand way

Audio of Mahesh Babu's Athidhi was released on Thursday, September 27, 2007 at Marriott Hotel in Hyderabad. It was held in a grand manner. Superstar Krishna and Mahesh fans too surged to the venue. Superstar Krishna released the first audio album and handed over it to his wife Vijaya Nirmala and he gave the first CD to UTV representative Sunil Vadhwa. Athidhi is directed by hotshot director Surender Reddy and is produced by Ramesh Babu on Krishna Productions Private Limited banner. UTV is distributing it.

Krishna said that the film has come out so well. "It will entertain fans and general audiences alike. I am sure that Mahesh sets new record with this film again. Athidhi will break Pokiri's records," Krishna said. "Mahesh Babu is most handsome hero and you don't find such a charismatic hero in South India. Manisharma always gives best to Mani and to my films. He has given superb tunes for Athidhi too," director Surender informed.

Lyricist Siri Vennela too praised the film and hero Mahesh Babu. "He comes as a guest to the people who love him and also greets his opponents in the film," he said. Mahesh came with his wife Namrata and his entire family members attended the function.

Mohan Babu-Chiranjeevi fans lock horns

The vexed flare-up of emotions between the fans of Mohan Babu-Chiranjeevi has once again surged ahead on Monday night. A newly launched TV channel NTV, vying for a place in the field, has sensationalized a flimsy issue last night, dragging into the rut the names of Mohan Babu and Chiranjeevi. According to information, some drivers associated with the film industry came to a take-home restaurant located between the Plots of Allu Arvadin and Mohan Babu. At the same time, some dancers and persons of Allu Arjun’s side ordered parcel of biryani and some delicious non-veg dishes. The rift arose. Who should get it first? In the melee, a person belonging to Allu Arjun’s side fell down into the mud-covered road. Later, the other group gathered the mass and is said to have attacked the actor’s supporters. In view of the location and the presence of Mohan Babu’s men (as they passed though the lane to have dinner at a nearby hotel) made NTV construe that a rift had occurred between Mohan Babu and Chiranjeevi group.

Following the news scroll, supporters of Chiranjeevi were said to have lifted away a print of Yamadonga from the theatre screening at Amalapuram (East Godavari district), last night. Unconfirmed reports said the print was thrown into a pond. As retaliation, Mohan Babu’s supporters have resorted to burning the effigies of Chiranjeevi and Allu Arjun in Tirupati and Anantapur. The Amalapuram incident might prompt the fans of NTR also to join the issue.

The tug of war between the fans of Mohan Babu and Chiranjeevi is still fresh in the minds of the people. That time, it was Mohan Babu who came out first with a statement appealing for calm. But, now, no star has come forward with any appeal. There is a feel among the industry that this simple outbreak of emotions between the two groups for no direct involvement of their stars into the issue might result in protests once again. The outcome of Telugu Cinema Vajrotsavams (TCV) witnessed bitter burning and counters burning of effigies of Mohan Babu and Chiranjeevi by their respective fans.

Happy Days censored today

Sekhar Kammula

Ragging cheste friends avuthara? Yes, according to a student in Sekhar Kammula’s Happy Days. According to TCP sources, the Censor Board members didn’t agree. Evaraithe college lo kotthaga join avutharo, you are expecting to get a warm welcome and looking for a friendly smile but what you get instead is something contrary.

The thought of ragging sends shivers down the spine! There have been umpteen deaths associated with ragging and ragging is banned in almost all colleges and the college prospectus says that clearly in its rules and regulations still it happens and not much is done about it. The members felt that it was a negative aspect and the system should not be supported by a powerful medium like the films.

The other words used in the dialogues written by the director too was objected like nee yamma, nee abba, pori abe saley, etc., but looks like the first word went under the scissor. Only a lady seemed to support the director today and she was seen arguing that the word ‘nee yamma’ was also used in films like Samarsimha Reddy. By the way Kamalini Mukherjee plays a brief role of a lecturer. This one seemes to have got U/A.

Presenter of Sairam Shankar’s new film Hello Premistara, Dil Raju expressed his joy at the good openings to the film. “My combination with Puri Jagan pulled the crowds to the theatre,” he said. He accepted that the film could not impress the audience in the second half as it did in the first half. He further agreed that the film was like the copycat of Ajit starrer Vaali. Director Rajkumar said he had wonderful experience working with big people like Puri Jagannath and Dil Raju. Sairam Shankar said the audience liked his negative role Arjun in the film. Producer Puri Jagan and music director Chakri also took part in the meet. Meanwhile, full details of Dil Raju’s proposed film in November will be known soon.

Chirutha Story Leaked!

This is the story that is making rounds in internet through emails as the story of 'Chirutha'. The truth in this is not known but we have to wait and see if it coincides with the original.

"Durga (Jagapathi Babu) is a big factionist in Hyderabad. He has a sister (Neha) whom he takes care off from her childhood and she is very dear to him. Durga has a rival "Taslim Khan" based in Old city and Neha's life is under threat because of the gang fights between both groups

Neha is always followed by bodyguards and her body guards try to beat up some innocent student in college thinking he might be having links with Khan. Somebody in college calls his friend on Mobile asking to help his innocent friend. A series of Phone calls are shown and msg reaches some one and the phone calls stop with this guy. He is none other than "Charan Tej" who gives life for friendship. He comes to the college in minutes and here is the introduction fight of hero. Elevation of hero is handled excellently by Puri Jagannadh and this is by far the most powerful introduction any new hero got in last decade.

The scenes following revolve around how heroine gets impressed by charan's quality risking his life for somebody he doesn't even know and she falls in love with him in her first look. First half of movie goes really fast with good comedy timing by Charan and his friends (Sunil,Venumadhav etc). There are some gripping moments in the movie when Jagapathi Babu and Charan meet one another and Jagapathi Babu doesn't know that Charan is the same guy who hit his men in college. Interval bang comes in a way where Charan goes to Old city into Khan's den, gives him warning and comes back. By the end of first half, the expectations of people will be set very high about the second half.

Second half deals with how Charan shows the power of youth to fight out both gangs in the city with his intelligence and how Charan manages to win his love by overpowering Jagapathi Babu. The film has to be watched on screen and is a treat to fans and very enjoyable to movie lovers.

YamaDonga Tops Telugu movies of the week

Finally, "Hello Premistara" starring Sairam Shankar, who is Puri Jagannath's brother, hit the theatres this fortnight. The film's release had been postponed due to the recent bomb blasts. With security tightened in some theatres, the audiences have now started returning to the cinema halls.

Despite the new release and bomb blasts, "Yamadonga" seems to be ahead in the ratings and tops the chart.

The coming weeks will see Shekhar Kammula's "Happy Days" and Puri Jagannath's "Chiruta", which is the debut vehicle of Chiranjeevi's son Ramcharan Teja.

The top five Telugu films are:

1. "Yamadonga" - The film is still running in over a dozen theatres after a month of its release. Despite unfavourable reviews, the films is doing good business and director S.S. Rajamouli and actor N.T.R. Jr. certainly have reasons to smile at its success. The music by Keeravani continues to be on the audio charts.

2. "Raghavan" - A dubbed Telugu version of "Vettaiyadu Vilayadu", the film seems to have impressed the audience. The film is a good effort by director Goutham Menon. It has brilliant acting by Kamal Haasan and Jyothika. Some of the good Tamil films dubbed in Telugu are doing brisk business at the box office.

3. "Yamagola Malli Modalaindhi" - This rib-tickling comedy is still running in the theatres and doing average business. Some good performances seem to have made a difference.

4. "Chandamama" - Director Krishna Vamsi's film is a simple entertainer set against a rural backdrop and has made it to the list. "Chandamama" is reportedly going well with the audience.

5. "Lakshyam" - A decent entertainer, the film continues to do well, auguring good times for actor Gopichand.

Shriya's item song in Tulasi

The confusion over Tulasi or Tulasiram is finally settled. Tulasi is finalized after the amicable agreement. The title was originally registered by Raviraja Pinishetty. After much dilly-dallying, he has given in and handed over the title to D Suresh Babu. So it is Tulasi.

Shriya's item song

Shriya who is riding high after Shivaji will do an item song in the film. The song will be canned from September 20th in Hyderabad at a special set. Shriya who had acted as heroine opposite Venky in Subash Chandra Bose is doing a very hot number.

Audio on 23rd!

The music by Devisri Prasad will hit the market on September 23rd through Aditya music. Tulasi is directed by Boyapati Srinivas and stars Nayanatara as the lead heroine.
