Colors Swathi in Tamil film

Swathi (Colors fame) is now playing lead role in a Tamil film titled Subramanyapuram. After giving 'Color' to the popular TV show with her charm, Swathi appeared in few Telugu movies including one of the lead roles in Danger and supporting role in Adavari Matalaku Ardhale Verule.

Subramanyapuram is a film about a group of friends who don't care for anything. They become problematic in their place. Now a charming girls enters between them and what happens then is the story. The film is directed by M.Sasi Kumar, who earlier worked with directors Bala (Sethu) and Amir (Mounam Pesiyathe). In addition to directing the film, he is also producing it and acting in it.

Chiranjeevi party is Labor Party

As reported by a media source, the name of Chiranjeevi's party will be 'Labor Party' and the theme song of the party would be 'Nenu Saitam' from Tagore. The song even got a national award for the content.
Talking to the media today, Allu Aravind said that fans will have to wait for couple of more months and above information is confirmed by him. 'We all waited patiently for so long.. we should wait for couple of more months', said Allu Aravind. There were some pamphlets that read - Leader is Chiranjeevi, Radhasaradhi is Nagendra Babu, Vyuhakartha (strategist) is Allu Aravind, Dalapati is Pawan Kalyan and chief advisor is Mitra.

Harirama Jogayya is one politician, present Congress MP, who is being very vocal about Chiranjeevi's entry. He even publicly announced that if Chiranjeevi established a party, he would join it. Talking to a news media today, Jogayya announced that Chiranjeevi is blessed. 'Even during NTR time, the public did not go to NTR and requested him to start the party. He started the party and people voted for him. Chiranjeevi is in much better situation. He is being requested by the public and fans to come in to the politics and do good to them. He is blessed for that. What else is needed for someone to step into politics'. This he said in response to a question on if Chiranjeevi will have any hurdles.

When asked to compare on Balakrishna's entry, Harirama Jogayya said that there is lot of difference in the approach of the two. 'Chiranjeevi is willing to start his own party. So it is his own party, own mandate. Whereas Balakrishna is taking TDP's side. He is not the CM candidate. He is only canvassing for the CM candidate. So even if he wanted to do good for the society, it will not have the same impact. The comparison would have been different if Balakrishna also wanted to start his own party'.

Jogayya even confirmed that the public seemed to be very vexed with both YSR and CBN and that would be an added bonus if Chiranjeevi setup a party. There are good chances that Chiru party might tie up with Loksatta and left parties. Lok satta party and the leader Jayaprakash Narayana has a clean image and one of the most respectable politicians. Also, it is heard that a large number of leaders from both TDP and Congress would join Chiru's party. If this happens, it will be almost a political revolution in the state.

As per the media sources, party office will be launched on 15th of August and Chiru will start his tour in August. The party will have a mandate of social justice as the main criteria. Rural development and drinking water is any another key point in his mandate. Even there would be a department of anti-corruption in the Government.

All the TV channels have one job today - About Chiru party, running bulletins, gathering feedback etc. Overall, the feedback is very strong and positive. People are expecting him to clean up the mess in the politics and do good to the state. Even though Chiranjeevi himself did not say any word on it, Allu Aravind confirming the strategy excited all the fans and celebrations are taking place through out the state

Shriya is hot and getting hotter!


With an appearance in Mission Istanbul, Shriya Saran is finally being recognized in Bollywood for her flexibility and hard work over the last few years. Her career is now expected to move into the Red Hot Zone.

She started her career with a bang in Santosham in 2002, opposite Nagarjuna. She received her first award in 2005 when she won the Filmfare Best Telugu Actress Award for Chatrapathi. She also won the Best Hindi Female Debut Award for her role as Aaliya in Awaarapan in 2007. However, she really hit the big time with last year's groundbreaking movie Sivaji. Her star status was confirmed when the Hindu Makkal Katchi morality squad reported her to the police for wearing a clinging outfit at the celebrations for the movie.

But Shriya is very flexible and also works well in the English language - she's currently in two movies: What's Cooking and The Other End of the Line, which costars Jesse Metcalfe with whom, rumour has it, she is romantically linked.

How does Shriya feel about acting? "I love to do challenging and performance-oriented films if the offers come my way. I was lucky enough to get such roles quite early. I have proved that I can carry off well both in glamorous and performance-oriented films."

Audiences worldwide can expect to see Shriya featuring in Hindi, Telegu and English films coming their way this year.

Dasavatharam release postponed to june 13th

Kamal Hassan's much-awaited Dasavataram is officially hitting the screens worldwide with over 1000 prints on June 13th. Previously the flick was scheduled to release on June 6th, which date later got shifted to June 12th. The latest shift by a day is due to delay in the subtitle works meant for languages other than Telugu, Tamil and Hindi, according an official statement. Also a big relief prevails among the film unit with the Chennai court quashing a petition filed by a religious group against the film.

NTR looks good and handsome

NTRjr was bubbly hero in his Rakhi, but he reduced his weight by 20 kgs by the time of Yamadonga- that story was on request of director SS Rajamouli.

The lean and thin NTR did well in Yamadonga but at the same time his lady fans were disappointed with his thin figure and openly asked him to put on some weight.

But he continued with same weight for Kantri too.

While participating promotional activities of Kantri, NTR's lady fans requested him to put on some weight and as for the their request NTR is put on 5 Kgs of weight now.

Now he looks good and handsome and his fans must be happy with present figure of NTR. His new add on weight is seen on his face when he came to NTR's tomb on 28th May for offering his tributes to his grand father.

Dashavatharam to be screened for George Bush.

With the court clearing the Public Litigation cases against Dasavatharam, the crew is gearing up for a second-week June release. However, another mammoth task in front of the producers is to screen the movie to the US president George Bush. As per latest reports, talks are on with the help of the producers’ US counterparts with Whitehouse officials to arrange for the screening.

It is learnt that since Bush, as the US president, is heading the efforts to make the world’s nations sign the Nuclear Non-proliferation treaty, it would only be apt to screen him the movie that urges that nuclear energy should only be used for constructive purposes and not to cause destruction.

Genelia is real innocent girl

While addressing the media, Genelia said, “People ask me why I continue to do the role of an innocent girl. I feel such roles fit me and I enjoy essaying such characters as it is very close to how I am in my real life”.

To a poser on whether she aims to win awards for her performance, she humbly declines the same and states that she is yet to rise up to that level and at the moment not too keen to feature in such films.

She was also quick to add that it is the acceptance of the people which is very vital and she wishes to concentrate on that segment alone for the time being.

Story:

Kundarika ( Balakrishna ) is a follower of Lord Krishna but for the wrong reasons. He does all the mischievous things that Lord Krishna did in his reign. Once when his family members ask him to marry he leaves his village and runs away. After his family members perform a yagnam he comes back to his village. In the neighboring village Lakshmi ( Sneha ) is a big devotee of Lord Krishna. One night Lord Krishna appears in her dreams and asks her to marry Kundarika. So Lakshmi's father approaches Bala Krishna but he refuses. Later after some persuasion from Lakshmim, Kundarika accepts the marriage.

In the mean time Amrutha ( Tabu ) a dancer comes to their village. Kundarika is mesmerized by her beauty and goes into a relationship with her. He offers all the gold in the house to her. But after the marriage he stops visiting Amrutha. Knowing this Amrutha's mother calls Kundarika for a meal and serves poison to him and grabs all his wealth. The rest of the movie is how Kundarika turns to Lord Krishna's devotee and get backs to his family....


Highlights


Nandamuri Balakrishna's action in the movie is the top notch. He managed the dual roles of Lord Krishna and Kundarika very well. He adjusted from the woman's man role to devotee role very well. Balakrishna as Lord Krishna made the audience think of Sr.NTR .

Sneha's acting has done a good job as wife of Balakrishna. K.Vishwanth as always stealed the show with his acting. Mohan Babu's guest role is brief but brilliant. Raghavendra Rao's direction showed in the songs. Also he succeeded in showing the movie differently when compared to his previous movies.

The taking second half of the film is simply awesome. Second Half of the movie dominates. Kiravani's tunes added to the movie.


Sidelights:


L.B. Sri Ram as Narada did not fit the role. Bharavi's story is not as effective as his previous ones. The graphic work in the movie is too weak to handle. The story is the first half seems a little bit dragged. There is no much comedy in the movie. The comedy scenes involving Sunil, Ali and Dharmavaram Subramanyam pertained to a few giggles in the audience. Raghavendra Rao's selection of character artists for Lord Krishna's wives did not please the audience.



Bala Krishna Fans will be more than satisfied.

How Shriya growed from tollywood to hollywood?

Many of us fail to recognize the steady growth of actress Shriya's career. Her career path has risen phenomenally and her acting in a Rajinikanth movie can be termed as the pinnacle of her career. The svelte actress has come a long way in Tollywood since her debut, starring opposite Nagarjuna in Santosham, which was a smash hit. She has done leading roles in many big budget films and has been a prolific and much-sought-after heroine in Telugu after that.

She also made sporadic appearances in Hindi. She became a national figure after she acted with Rajinikanth in Sivaji. Now, she has become so busy that she rarely finds time to rest. She has now bagged offers to work in Hindi films such as Ek and Mission Istanbul. In Tamil, she is acting with Vikram in Kanthaswamy. In Telugu, it is being made as Mallanna at the same time.

She is also working in two English movies, What is cooking? and The other end of the line (produced by Ashok Amritraj). Many actresses feared losing prime roles when they were approached for a guest role alongside Vadivelu in Indralogathil Na Azhagappan . But Shriya accepted it immediately. This not only shows her self-confidence but also her admiration for comedy actors. It is commendable for a heroine to gain this quantum of fame in such a short time. Galatta.com wishes her many more top roles opposite top heroes in many more films!

Mahesh babu fans unhappy

'Prince' Mahesh Babu is one man who has been ruling the roost with his line of successive hits, apart from the film 'Sainikudu' most of his other films rained money at the box office and one can never forget the long lasting impact that 'Pokiri' created not just on the audience but also on the industry as a whole. But there is a flip side to his story.

Mahesh prefers to do only one film a year and the last film that everyone got to see was 'Athidhi' which was a painful movie but made massive collections at the box office. From then on, there is absolutely no news as to when Mahesh's next film will go onto floors.

The latest that we have on him is that his upcoming film has been tentatively titled 'Varudu' which will be directed by Trivikram Srinivas. This has been keeping Mahesh fans in the dark and they are said to be going restless over when the film will hit the floors and when they can see him back on screen. Sadly for them, there is no release for Mahesh this year. Even though the shooting of 'Varudu' starts in June it certainly takes more than 6 months to release.

chiranjeevi party name among these 3?

In all likelihood, Mana Desam will be the name of film star Chiranjeevi’s much-awaited political party. If Chiru camp insiders are to be believed, the mega star will register his party’s name with the Election Commission in about 10 days.

Chiranjeevi had a meeting with his close confidant Allu Aravind, political advisor Mitra and ophthalmologist Prasad Reddy on Tuesday night.

During the two-hour-long meeting, they are understood to have discussed three names - Jai Chiranjeeva, Eye Party and Mana Desam. The actor preferred Eye Party but divided opinion and fear that it may not go down well with the masses persuaded him to zero in on Mana Desam (our country). The others too felt Mana Desam would be apt.

Sources said unless there were last minute changes, Chiranjeevi's political outfit will be Mana Desam. Finally, it appears the D-Day is not far off.

Excerpts from an interview.

Q Why television?
An entry in television is never a full stop for films.
TV has always excited me as it plays an important role in every household. I am even working in films simultaneously.

Q About the soap...
Simran Marapu Rani Kathalu, which will be telecast on MAA TV, is not a daily soap and that’s exactly what excited me. It chronicles various small stories filled with humour, emotions and drama. I will play the lead character in all these stories — each role is different from the other. Each story will end in a month.

Q On juggling between family, films, TV...
I make a timetable and adhere to it daily. I am lucky to get all support from my husband Deepak and son Odo, and this keeps me going.

Q The television industry is said to lure film artists with moolah...
(Smiling) Oh! I did not know that.

Q Telugu TV industry versus Tollywood?
I feel the shoots, schedules and the takes are almost the same in both; it’s only the scale which makes it look larger or smaller.

Q Future projects?
Along with this soap, I am doing three Tamil films I also have a couple of game shows lined up. With so much on my plate, I think Tollywood will have to wait.

In fact Balayya's passion is to act in mythological films. The best performance comes out when something is worked with passion.

Sneha is now acting in the Telugu film 'Ullasamga… Uthsahanga'. She is now spending a lot of time in the south in connection with her film assignments. She loves food and has taken a big liking for south Indian delicacies like sambar. She is gorging on oodles and oodles of sambar with rice, dosa, vada etc. everyday.

The result is that she has put on a lot of weight in a very short span of time. She now looks plump and a bit too heavy to play heroine roles in films.

Balakrishna as police officer in 'Sadhu'

Nandamuri Balakrishna's latest film 'Pandurangadu' is all set for release on May 30. Even as the film is about to hit the screen, Balakrishna started playing hero in a film under the direction of Gunasekhar, which is being produced by MS Raju on the banner of Sumanth Arts.

'Sadhu' is the title under consideration for the movie.

Though the shooting of the film had begun long ago, the entire unit is maintaining a low-profile, in the wake of MS Raju's successive failures.

It is learnt that Balakrishna is playing the role of a powerful police officer in the movie on the lines of 'Rowdy Inspector'. The role would be further powerful than 'Lakshmi Narasimha', the director claims.

However, who are playing the female leads and it is still unclear as to who were the other artistes and technicians in the film.

Dasavatharam release date confirmed

Yes, all the fans of Kamal have a reason to rejoice. The much awaited magnum opus of Padmashri Kamal Hassan will be release worldwide on June 6th. The film is slated to be released initially in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi with 1000 prints.

Producer Oscar Ravichandran has confirmed the release date.

'Bujjigadu-Chiranjeevi Fan' Shifted To Rajnikanth fan

It was 'Bujjigadu-Chiranjeevi Fan' in initial script of the film. The film runs in the background of a village in West Godavari district. But Mohan Babu expressed his stern opposition towards that. He opposed that although not given a role in that. Puri Jagannatha and KS Rama Rao have faced the anger of Mohan Babu in this regard.

After reacting to Mohan Babu positively they agreed to him and offered him a role as well. Hence the title was changed to 'Bujjigadu-Made in Chennai' and replaced Chiranjeevi-subject with Rajni Kanth. The story backdrop also changed to Chennai from village in West Godavari.

Prabhas played the role of Rajni Kanth's fan in that. This is the hot rumor that is making rounds in Film Nagar today at the outset of the film's release.

'Pandurangadu' Decides the Fate of Tollywood

The Balakrishna starrer 'Pandurangadu' is being eagerly awaited by all Balakrishna fans as well as lovers of mythological films. Balayya is playing a dual role in the film and Sneha and Tabu are the main female leads.


The film's success is very crucial in more ways than one. The first is that Balakrishna is desperate to score a big hit. His last few films did not do well at the box office at all. The second and more important thing is for the industry as a whole. If Pandurangadu clicks, then it will open a new chapter in Tollywood in terms of mythological films, already with a success track of 'Annamayya' and 'Sree Ramadasu'.

Balakrishna is also keen to make mythological films like Seetaramakalyanam and Narthanashala.

Director VV Vinayak is also keen to make a mythological and is in touch with JK Bharavi for a suitable subject. We have to see how the film benefits Tollywood.

NTR to do a film with another young director.

Yes, NTR is going to do a film for this young director, he is none other than Lakshyam Sreenivas. Dil Raju is the producer. Manisharma will tune the music. The film is likely to be titled as Sree Ramanavami.

But this film will go on floors only after VV Vinayak’s film. Trisha will be paired opposite NTR for Vinayak’s film.

Mahesh Babu is getting bigger by day. Tamil superstar Rajnikant's daughter Soundarya has now signed him up. Soundarya who has just turned producer and associated with Hollywood giant Warner Brothers has roped in Mahesh Babu and hotshot director Puri Jagannadh for her maiden Telugu production. Yes, the Pokiri team is repeating again. Soundarya has made Mahesh and Puri to agree to work again. The film will begin in January 2008.

Soundarya's company, Ocher Studios, has entered into an exclusive multi-picture deal with Warner Bros Pictures India. She is already producing a film in Tamil with hero Ajith on part of this deal. In Telugu, she has chosen the Pokiri team. It is learnt that the film might be sequel to Pokiri as Puri Jagannadh has been planning to do sequel to this all time biggest grocer in Tollywood. Surely, Mahesh Babu is going high places.

Gunashekar wants NTR first heroine

Gunashekar is now making a film with hero Nagarjuna in the lead as per unofficial talk. The film will hit the floor only after Nagarjuna completes work on his new film 'King' directed by Srinu Vytla and 'Dad' by Lawrence, say sources.

Gunashekar is making a film based on a novel written by Adavi Bapiraju. The character is Gona Gangareddy, a valiant fighter who fought the imperialist British forces during the freedom struggle.
Gunashekar is now keen to cast Smitha Madhav as the heroine opposite Nagarjuna. Smitha acted with Jr. NTR as Sita in the film 'Ramayanam' made by MS Reddy. Smitha is now an accomplished singer and dancer with many stage shows to her credit both in India as well as abroad. Smitha has also completed her LAW course and is very particular and selective at choosing roles. Let us see if she bends for Guna Sekhar.

Hansika should follow NTR

The young Hansika Motwani made a dream debut in Tollywood with the blockbuster hit 'Desamuduru'. Allu Arjun was the hero and Hansika stole many hearts with her innocent face, ravishing body and great looks.

Hansika claims that she is just 17 but anyone who has seen her in Jr. NTR's latest film 'Kantri' will surely find it hard to agree. She looks much older than 17. The other shocking thing is that she has now put on a lot of weight and in many scenes she looked very fat and buxom.

In some close up scenes, her rotund figure was all too visible. It is time Hansika should take immediate corrective measures. She should take a cue from the hero in the film, NTR and immediately go in for a weight reduction course.
