Pawans jalsa for 29 crores

UTV has offered to pay 29 crore for the distribution rights for the film Jalsa with Pawan Kalyan in the lead. The UTV offer is for the entire country. Allu Aravind has not yet made up his mind and will take some more time to decide his next Cinema.
Meanwhile Jalsa has shaped up very well and the Pawan- Ileana combination is expected to create magic at the box office.

Sankranthi box office report

The Sankranthi results are out now. Ravi Teja's Krishna has emerged as the real winner among the Sankranthi releases. It stands at No.1 position, facing stiff competition from three other festival releases. Krishna is a mile ahead from them.

The much-hyped Balakrishna and YVS Chowdhary's Okka Magadu turned out to be big dud at the box-office. This further helped Krishna which is directed by V V Vinayak. The film was not that hot, prior to release but the tables have turned now with the audiences enjoying its comedy.

Trisha who first time did the glamorous role also played key role in its success. Krishna also became a big rage in overseas that is a first time for a V V Vinayak film. And the big surprise is the rise of Sumanth's Pourudu. It now stands in second position. Sumanth made in roads into B and C centers with this movie. It netted about Rs 4 Crores of gross in the first week. Yet, in cities it moves on a slow run.

Balakrishna's Okka Magadu was written off by his fans and as well as general audiences as it lacks content. M S Raju turned director’s Vaana could not show off his magic this time. The film failed to attract the urban youth who have already seen such films in the past. Added to it, the grim climax did not gel with the multiplex audiences.

'Bheema' of Telugu to change Climax scenes?
'Bheema' is the movie that struck Tamil screens for Sankranthi, talk for this flick is not good, in this movie hero, heroine and other important stars die at climax is what is shown, this is resulting in minus marks for the flick. If the same climax is released in Telugu, even our audiences are sure to make it a flop, as such makers are thinking of changing the climax scenes for which again they have to re shoot the sequences. As such this movie was much much delayed due to many reasons, having released it with this outcome need to wait and watch what makers would do, whether they change climax or they release as it is to be seen.

Gopichand's Ontari audio released

The audio of Ontari, starring Gopichand and Bhavana, is released tonight at Prasad Labs, Hyderabad. Aditya music is marketing the album. The colorful function was attended by Dr. D. Ramanaidu, Pokuri Babu Rao, hero Rajasekhar, Prabhas, R. Narayanamurthy, Gopichand, heroine Bhavana and others. Made on Eetharam movies banner, it is produced by Pokuri Babu Rao and directed by BV Ramana. Music is by Mani Sharma.

Dr. D. Ramanaidu released the cassette and presented the first number to Prabhas. Rajasekar released the CD and gave it to Dil Raju. Speaking on this occasion, Ramanaidu wished good luck to the entire team. It may be noted that Ramanaidu mistook the title of the film as Pokiri instead of Ontari, which was immediately corrected by people on the dais. Highlight is that Ramanaidu too took it sportive. "This film Ontari will become a blockbuster like Pokiri," he said.

Rajasekhar said that he was surprised that Eetharam banner had shot the songs abroad for Ontari, which is first of its kind in its history. "This shows the commitment on the part of the producer and director towards mass elements. Generally, Pokiri Babu Rao is the sort of a person who would prefer a location like Singarayakonda for shooting a film like Meccenna's Gold. It's amazing that he took the unit abroad for songs." Pokuri Babu Rao said that he always filmed blockbusters with hero Rajasekhar. "Later, Raghavendra Rao did blockbuster Allari Priyudu, followed by my film Anna, which broke the previous record. The same thing happened with hero Gopichand, whose previous films on Eetharam banner – Yagnam and Ranam. The hero gave another blockbuster Lakshyam with producer Bujji. I hope Ontari will break the record of Lakshyam. If not could it break, at least it would level it," he said.

Hero Gopichand said that his characterization in the film came out wonderfully. He further praised the music director Mani Sharma for his superb work. Heroine Bhavana thanked the filmmakers for their patronage, providing her debut in Tollywood with a friendly unit. She hoped that the film would bring her name and fame in the industry. R. Narayanamurthy spoke in his own rebel's style, jovially pointing at the zeal of Pokuri Babu Rao for mass elements at "this stage of your career." Hero Prabhas too expressed his good wishes to the team.

Sequel to Aditya 369

Nandamuri Balakrishna officially confirmed that he is doing sequel to his blockbuster Aditya 369 that won him the wider audiences. "We have decided to make a sequel to Aditya 369 and I believe this is the right time to contemplate it," he informed. Shivalanka Krishna Prasad who originally produced the film will also produce the sequel too. Director for this film has not yet been finalized though.

Aditya 369 is a science fiction based on Time Machine concept and it is a unique film in Telugu. Directed by Singeetam Sreenivasa Rao, the film had music by Ilayaraja.

Balakrishna said the sequel will begin later this year.

Balakrishna started speaking to the media about his Sankranthi release Okka Magadu. He said he is game for experiments and sequels. But Balakrishna believes that remaking old classics involves big risk. That is why he said no to the proposal of remaking his father Late NTR starrer Yugandhar (which is remake of Amitabh's Don).
