Halla Bol is Bollywood Movie- Ajay Devagan and Vidya Balan played the lead roles. Raj Kumar Santhoshi directed the film. It is the film where the politicians try to put a check to a film hero and hero wins over them.

Rajnikanth and Shankar on Robot
A grand gala event was organized to celebrate the silver jubilee of Sivaji which was held at the Centenary Hall of Madras University, Chennai where the artists and technicians associated with the film were felicitated by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. This function was attended by the prominent luminaries of the industry.

While speaking at the function, Super Star Rajnikanth conveyed his gratitude to the current and former Chief Ministers of Tamil Nadu for having watched the film on his request. He also averred that he has been extremely fortunate to have worked under AVM banner and also under director Shankar. He further went on to thank all the technicians of the film as well as his co-stars.

On his future projects, he mentioned that he would be working for his mentor K Balachander’s Kavithalaya productions before he starts his mega project Robot with Shankar. He also prayed the Almighty that Robot should be as successful as Sivaji.

When director Shankar spoke on Robot, he said, “As Robot required a huge budget, I considered Bollywood but it did not work out. Luckily, the success of Sivaji has revived my faith that such films can be tried out in Tamil too. As major forces like super star Rajnikanth and A R Rahman have teamed up together, I am confident that there certainly would be an encore of Sivaji magic”.

Trisha turns glamourous!

Has Trisha decided to shed her village belle image in Tollywood?

She had an ordinary year in 2007 as competition from Shriya, Asin and Nayanthara gave her sleepless nights. Now all that is behind, as Trisha's long delayed Bheema with her favourite hero Vikram is ready for Pongal in Tamil while her Telugu film with Ravi Teja Krishna is also releasing in Andhra for Sankranthi.

And now with stiff competition from her competitors, Trisha seems to have realized the fact that she no longer carry on with her 'homely' looks. In Ravi Teja's Krishna, we get to see a completely new Trisha. Gone are pattu parikinee's (Half Saris) and micro mini skirts are in.

The Chennai beauty has indulged in skin show for the first time in Telugu films with Krishna. She is seen dancing in wet clothes wearing micro skirts. She believes that this new makeover will put her on the right pedestal and give her a chance to be in competition. And already results are showing!

Trisha has bagged the chance to act with Nagarjuna in his next film apart from playing the lead role in Puri Jagannadh's Bujjigaadu Made In Chennai with Prabhas. She is in discussions with two more films in Telugu.

Where is Lawrence at present ?

Director and actor Raghava Lawrence, who has been criticized very badly for the recent debacle ‘Don‘ starring Nagarjuna has now decided to lie low in Tollywood and is now seen in Kollywood. Apparently, the director has decided to spend some time in Tamil industry and to be safe he has roped in the bombshell Namitha for his next film that will take care of the glamour angle and then he has also got Sneha which will take care of the family audience. The film is titled ‘Pandi‘ and currently the shoot is on in a full swing.

Raviteja's Krishna Review

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Nicely packed comedy flick

Strengths: Ravi Teja, Brahmanandam and comedy

Weaknesses: Routine story

Must see scenes:

1. Comedy between Brahmanandam and Ravi Teja

2. Comedy bits in the villan gang

Must avoid scenes: Nothing much to mention

Analysis: It is an out and out comedy flick with very good comedy timing and expressions by the characters. Krishna has a very hillorious first half and a little serious second half with good action sequences. This movie is particularly a good refresher after watching Okkamagadu yesterday. It will surely draw crowds during these Sankranthi holidays. It is a complete entertainer to those audience who watch movies only for entertainment.

Performances: Krishna movie has Ravi Teja as hero whose role is custom made and also tailor made for him. It is a complete mass comedy entertainer and Ravi Teja just lives in the role. His comedy timings and expressions are excellent.

Trisha did a very glamorous role for the first time in Telugu cinema. She proved the fact that she can also go for skin show if necessary. She looks good in the role of a rich man’s sister who falls in love with the hero.

Brahmanandam needs to be applauded here. He did his role with ease and made it in such a way that he brings the whole audience down with laughter. He achieved Guinness Book of Records, if there is anything more than this then i would pray to God that he should get that also. He combined with Ravi Teja created a rib-tickling comedy which will remind us of Dhee movie.

Other characters like Venu Madhav, Sunil, Mukul Dev, Chandra Mohan and others are adequate in their roles.

Music by Chakri looks like he copied from hindi and tamil songs when heard but when seen on screen these songs create a whole new impression because of the taking and dance sequences. They are up to the mark.

Dialogues by Akula Shiva are superb. He timed the comedy dialogues, punches, sattires excellently and made the audience roll with laughter. Akula Shiva is developing with each movie. When compared to Lakshmi and Tulasi he did a better job in Krishna.

Chota K Naidu played jimmics with his camera. He shot Vijayawada in such a way that even the audience of Vijayawada would feel proud of their city seeing the beauty of it like how I felt. He captured Vijayawada in its true beauty and showed it to the viewers. Good work Naidu.

VV Vinayak as the director and screen-player did an excellent job. He should be appreciated first for the issue that he shifted from action genere movie to comedy genere. Though his trade mark vechicle blastings and lengthy chase sequences are present in Krishna, the comedy in this movie dominates every other thing and makes this movie a hit. After the super flop Yogi last year (12-01-2007), VV Vinayak is releasing Krishna exactly after one year (12-01-2008) and is back with a different bang. It was an ugly action flick but this is a beautiful comedy flick. Congrats Vinayak.

Story: Krishna (Ravi Teja) is an educated but un-employed youth of Vijayawada who falls in love with Sandhya (Trisha). She stays with her cousin Babi (Brahmanandam) but is actually the sister of a rich contractor (Shiyaji Shinde). Story shifts from Vijayawada to Hyderabad as heroine moves and along with her hero moves from Vij to Hyd. Here a local rowdy Jatka (Mukul Dev) takes a oath to marry Sandhya and the rest of the story is a tit for tat game between Krishna and Jatka.

He gave 'life' to Pawan 'twice'!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
“With his first seven films celebrating a jubilee run, Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao has attained instant stardom among today's directors. A person who gave life to Pawan Kalyan with his first success "Suswagatham" and now "Annavaram" clearly shows the great director's abilities”…
The above statement is the introduction to director Bheemaneni Srinivasarao in his very own website…
Bheemaneni worked with Pawan Kalyan for the first time for the film Suswagatam which did decent business. By then Pawan has already proved himself with Gokulamlo Sita which released prior to this film. Pawan did a good job in Suswagatam especially in the climax scenes and it is a known fact that it is not Bheemaneni’s greatness that the film clicked. It is just frame to frame copy of Tamil hit “Love Today”.
The second time Bheemaneni worked for Pawan is for Annavaram which released a year ago. This too is a remake of Tamil hit Tiruppachi and the director utterly failed to add Telugu nativity to it.
Actually it is Pawan Kalyan who gave Bheemaneni a chance to direct him again as he promised to work with him, few years ago. Pawan kept his promise and asked Bheemaneni to direct Annavaram and he wasted the golden opportunity.
It is ridiculous to see him claim that he gave life to Pawan Kalyan twice. If that is the case why should he wait all these days for another offer? By this time he must have given “life” to few other stars that are lagging behind with a row of flops. Isn’t it?
