Oka Mogadu is coming in Style

Balakrishna’s latest film Okka Magadu is all set to hit the theatres on Jan 11, the day on which Narasimha Naidu released few years back. Balakrishna donned different getups in Okka Magadu and few of them would surprise the audience, sources said.

YVS who is an ardent fan of late NTR is giving his best to make this film stand out as the best ever film in Balakrishna’s career. The audio of this film is going to release on Dec 14th.

The audio of this film got very good talk among the film circles and YVS says this audio is the best of his career. Mani Sharma, who gave the biggest musical hits to Balakrishna such as Samara Simha Reddy and Narasimha Naidu composed foot tapping tunes for Okka Magadu, YVS told. He has huge expectations on this movie and that is the reason why he is spending a lot of money without compromising at any instant.

This is probably the highest budget film of Balakrishna. Hope OM lives up to the expectations of YVS and thus proves to be the best of NBK.

Ram Charans’s film on Rajastan backdrop

Everything is getting ready for Ram Charan’s second film. Produced by Allu Aravind and directed by Raja Mouli, this flick may soon hit floors. According to sources, the filmmakers are now trying to rope in Bollywood bombshell Kangana Ranaut to play opposite Ram Charan in this flick.

It is being said that it’s a complete masala film on the lines of earlier Raja Mouli’s films. Raja Mouli, who prefers special backdrops to bring the freshness and tempo in his scripts had Kerala, Srilanka and Madhya Pradesh for his films Simhadri, Chathrapathi and Vikramarkudu. According to sources, Raja Mouli is preparing a script on the backdrop of the Rajastan this time.

AR Rahaman’s best of ten from his heart

Recently, A R Rahman was asked to shortlist his 10 best compositions. These are the films he chose:

Roja: starring Arvind Ramaswamy and Madhu Bala, Roja marked his debut and led to a long-lasting impact film industry.

Urmila Matondkar redefined fashion for heroines with her gorgeous costumes in Rangeela. Aamir Khan was at his best, and Rahman's music was outstanding.
Bombay: Mani Ratnam and Rahman paired up once again after Roja. Unfortunately, this film was mired in controversy as it explored the relationship between a Hindu boy and Muslim girl.
Dil Se: Lyricist Gulzar and Rahman teamed up for this, one of the best albums of the 90s. The train song, Chhaiya Chhaiya, rendered by Sukhwinder, established him as a singer overnight.
Taal: It was an association between Bollywood showmen Subhash Ghai.
Kandukonden Kandukonden: The film had Aishwarya Rai, Tabu, Ajith and Mammooty. It was directed by Rajiv Menon and the songs were outstanding.
Zubeidaa: Directed by Shyam Benegal, this film yielded actress Karishma Kapoor's best performance to date.
Lagaan: The only Indian film to be nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar in recent memory.
Rang De Basanti: Only a genius like Rahman, can make singer Daler Mehendi sound the way he did in Rang De Basanti.
Guru: Guru became the first big hit of 2007, and the song Tere Bina sung by Rahman went on and on during the Abhi-Ash wedding.
