South Superstar praises North Superstar

Rajnikanth today heaped praise on Sarkar Raj, Amitabh Bachchan’s latest film. The film, despite great pre launch fervour has failed to evoke a similarly great response.

Rajnikath is the biggest star of Indian cinema and his films have broken all the records at box office one after the other. His Shivaji was a truly magnum opus.

Sarkar Raj may not be doing too well on the box office but there is no doubt that the film and especially Amitabh have won accolades from film critics.

Rajnikath had reportedly asked for a special screening of the film and Ram Gopal Verma readily arranged for the screening of the film.

Rajnikanth, a big fan of Amitabh himself liked the film and called Amitabh to convey his good wishes for the film and appreciation for his role in te film.

NTR trust beats chiranjeevi blood bank !

NTR memorial trust, which is being headed by Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu, has been selected by the government for the award for highest number of blood donations.

Normally, whenever we talk about blood donations, the name that comes to our mind immediately is Chiranjeevi Blood Bank. But the government did not consider it. Instead, it preferred NTR Memorial Trust for the award. It would be presented to the Trust by Governor Rameshwar Thakur, shortly.

Though everybody talks about Chiranjeevi charitable trust, large number of Telugu Desam workers donate blood through NTR Trust every year on every occasion: Birth and death anniversaries of NTR, as well as on the birthday of Chandrababu Naidu. So, no wonder the NTR Trust got the award.

There is also another talk. Perhaps, the ruling Congress does not want Chiranjeevi's name getting fame before he launches the new party. So, it could be underplayed!

Dasavatharam got average openings in mumbai and delhi

The six-screen Mayajaal multiplex in Chennai is holding 45 shows a day of Kamal Hassan’s magnum opus Dasavatharam. Touted to be the most expensive film ever made in India, with a budget crossing Rs 75 crore according to estimates, it’s running to full houses in all the four southern states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala.

Leaving no stone unturned to ensure a grand opening, producer Oscar Ravichandran released 1,000 prints in India and 1,000 overseas. “The first two weeks are crucial for box-office collections and that’s the reason why so many prints have been released,” says Nambi Rajan, distributor of Dasavatharam in north and west India.

“The opening has been tremendous — 100% occupancy in cinema halls — in the south. What will help the movie is the fact that there are no big Tamil or Telugu releases in the next four weeks,” adds Rajan. However, the film, which has been released in Tamil and Telugu and with English subtitles, has done “below expectations” in Mumbai and Delhi.

Says PVR general manager Ranjan Singh, “The opening has been great in Bangalore and Hyderabad but average in Mumbai and Delhi. The rains in Mumbai may have been a damper.” An Adlabs spokesperson says the film is getting an amazing response from towns like Coimbatore as well.

The “lower turnout” in Mumbai and Delhi has obviously drawn comparisons with Rajnikanth’s Sivaji, the Boss, which grossed Rs 100 crore at the box-office last year. Says an insider: “Rajni is a mass entertainer and Kamal a class entertainer. People would have braved the rains for a Rajni film.”

So, what are the box-office expectations for Dasavatharam? According to industry experts, it won’t disappoint exhibitors, one of the reasons being that a huge number of prints have been released and it will make up the money in the first four weeks.

Kamal Hassan plays 10 different roles in the film, from a priest to President Bush, and according to sources, the stunning special effects alone cost Rs 25 crore. “The films starts in the 12th century and ends with the tsunami.”
