Why Telugu directors cannot think different?

Why Telugu directors cannot think different? Why the man like YVS also stooped down to that extent.These are some undigestable scenes from okka magadu

  • Balakrishna molests Nisha Kothari in a train scene. Is that called heroism? Or keeping up the image of him?
  • Balakrishna kills two people by holding them in one hand and holding a electric wire on the other. The shock wouldn’t hit Balakrishna. Is that called heroism? (Directors are bringing damage to Balakrishna by composing only such scenes). In fact there is a covering for that in climax.
  • Ashuthosh Rana, the First Person (may be an alternative term for CM) of the state comes out on roads wearing an underwear. Is that a scene to believe?
  • The CBI officers come to conclusion that old Balakrishna belongs to 1940s from the clue that he eats ‘dampudu biyyam’. Is there any sense in that? It’s available even now in many super markets.
  • Balakrishna gets into flying aero plane and says not to ask how he had come (so we should have question mark faces). He says to know only why he has come and blasts the plane. Yes, he escapes from that and smiles at last.

Genelia says ‘Maa Attayya Dayyam’.

Ravi Babu who made successful Anasuya with Bhoomika is going with Genelia for his next flick titled ‘Maa Attayya Dayyam’ and Radhika will be playing the title role. The script work is completed and likely to hit the sets by this month end.

Chiru gives heartache to Sonia

It was the Chiranjeevi factor that hastened the Congress to announce its intention to set up a second States Reorganisation Commission (SRC) for the creation of Telangana. The party's original plan was to move on the SRC front only sometime around March this year.

Highly placed Congress sources told TOI that the Chiru factor assumed such significance in the party that an ailing party president Sonia Gandhi had to scribble a note to AICC general secretary M Veerappa Moily from her hospital bed last week to seek a report on the impact of the megastar's entry into politics.

This was revealed by Moily to some Telangana Congress leaders at a meeting in the city late on Wednesday night, the sources disclosed. The meeting took place at the Lake View guest house in which seven leaders were present, including maverick RTC chairman M Satyanarayana Rao. "Sonia was concerned about the situation in Andhra Pradesh. Even while convalescing in hospital, she enquired about Chiranjeevi's moves to form a political party. She asked me to submit a report on the electoral fallout of the entry of Chiranjeevi," Moily told the Telangana leaders.

Once it became certain that Chiranjeevi is serious about floating a party (made clear at the 10th day ceremony of the actor's late father), the Congress high command immediately swung into action. Moily, who heads the government Administrative Reforms Commission, got down to work and simultaneously the home ministry was directed to do the groundwork.

"Home ministry officials have worked out the details as to the process of setting up the SRC, its composition, terms and reference, and appointment of chairperson etc.," the sources said. The idea is to keep everything in place so that things can be executed quickly once the Union cabinet clears the setting up of a second SRC, they said.

Keeping in view the fact that general and AP assembly elections are just 15 months away, there is a strong possibility of the SRC submitting an interim report on Telangana in the next six months, the sources added.

According to Moily, Sonia "wants a special reference to Telangana in the terms of reference of the SRC as well as a specific time-frame for the interim report on the separate state."

Balayya beats Mahesh Babu
When it comes to films starring big stars, fans make a big hue and cry. The release of big films is like a festival for their fans. They paint the town pink with rallies and meetings. The fans even spend a lot of money to show their allegiance to their star. Special premiere shows are held to show that their star is bigger than the other star.

The Mahesh Babu starrer Athidhi that hit the screen in October was a big event for his fans. Fans attended the special scening of the film at Gudivada from across the district and paid big money too. Each ticket was priced at Rs. 500. But the fans had no hesitation in paying the amount to watch a special premiere show held late in the night.

Now Balakrishna’s film ‘Okkamogadu’ is hitting the screen tomorrow. A special premiere show for his fans is being held at Bomarillu theatre in Gudivada. To show their might, the fans are shelling out Rs. 1,000 per ticket. This is double the amount than that for Athidhi. But when it comes to showing caste feelings, no amount is too big for these fans.
