Babu Bangaram Movie Review

Finally, Maruthi has proved that he can also do regular format films dealing with family and emotions, but of course not miss out his mark of entertainment. ‘Victory’ Venkatesh starring in “Babu Bangaram” hitting the screens on 12th of August, is yet another success adding to the kitties of both Venky and director Maruthi. As already reported, “Babu Bangaram” is just simple and ordinary, family and love drama filled with whole lot of fun for which Venkatesh can be said to be a brand Ambassador in the Telugu Film Industry.

Getting into the story, ACP Krishna (Venkatesh,) is a very soft hearted cop to the extent of getting into tears seeing the troubles of criminals too. Sailu (Nayanatara) is a middle class girl who has family issues, that is to be financially independent and to take care of her large family. Her father is absconding from Police, as a false murder case has been implicated on him. MLA Puchappa (Posani) and Mallesh Yadav (Sampath), the goons causing major trouble for Sailu,  to find out the whereabouts of her father. Krishna falls in love with Sailu and solves all the problems while punishing the bad guys.

Why the MLA is after Sailu’s father? What happens with the love story of ACP Krishna and Sailu? What is the reason behind ACP Krishna being so soft hearted and how did he get strong enough to face the baddies? Answers to all these will be known when the theatres open. It is assured that you will have a fun ride with smiles and laughs for the whole two and odd hours.

Story was very easy for a director like Maruthi having senior artistes like Venkatesh and Nayanatara to deal with. Typical and funny Venkatesh is seen back after a long time in the theatres with his great comic timing. Nayanatara was ever gorgeous, and the combo of Venky-Nayan looks to have bagged yet another success. Songs by Ghibran were very hummable and fresh. Special mention need to be done for ’30 years industry’ Prudhvi Raj, as Battayi Kayala Babji and Posani as MLA Puchappa for the comedy.

Over all, Babu Bangaram is a good and a simple entertainer leaving the audience with a happy feeling after watching the film. Maruthi has once again scored a good success after his last “Bhale bhale Magadivoy”. Please, you cannot afford to miss the very first scenes of the film which shows peak of pity by Venkatesh in a different role altogether. Details of that are a secret for now as you need to watch it on the big screens!!!

It’s been proved that when the script and screenplay are handled well and packed with a good dose of comedy, Tollywood audiences will give a thumbs up. That’s what happened with thes movie “Kandireega.” With the right kind of comedy and timing of dialogues, the director has delivered a packed entertainer.

Seenu tries to make Sruthi to fall in love with him. Just then as Sruthi falls in love with Seenu, who also teaches a lesson to Bhavani, there seems to be trouble brewing for him from unexpected quarters. The rest of the story is all about comedy of errors.

Ram is known as a bundle of energy right from his debut film “Devadas.” He has performed vigorous dance steps with ease in songs. Ram is one of the finest actors of Telugu cinema who can bring more to the table with his energy and enhance the effectiveness of scenes. Music for “Kandireega was scored by S. Thaman.

Plus points of this film are the comedy of Ram Potheneni and Sonu Sood, and the screenplay. The film received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike and was a box office success.

Vishnu as Lakkunnodu

Despite hailing from a well-renowned film family with ample talent, few actors still find it too difficult to rise to the stardom.  One among many such actors is Manchu Vishnu.  Though the actor had a few hits as a hero, none could help him attain the much desired stardom.

Pawan as Chief Guest

‘Mega Hero’ Ram Charan who is currently busy with the shooting of his upcoming film ‘Dhruva,’ seems to bring a bag of surprises with his new movie.

Buzz, now there is speculation about Pawan Kalyan being the chief guest for “Dhruva” audio launch. It is heard that Ram Charan alone is trying to bring his uncle, Pawan Kalyan as the chief guest of his movie audio launch event. If everything goes positively, it is good news for Mega fans. Looks like Ram Charan has planned every event of his film on some special days.

“Dhruva,” an official remake of Tamil superhit movie “Thani Oruvan,” which had ‘Jayam Ravi‘ and Arvind Swamy as a hero and villain which is directed by ‘Jayam’ Ravi’s brother Mohan Raja. The Telugu version is directed by ‘Stylish’ director Surender Reddy who is all set to show Ram Charan in the role of a tough cop in this action thriller “Dhruva” that features Rakul Preet Singh as the female lead and Arvind Swamy reprising his own role from the Tamil version.

Earlier, Ram Charan entertained as a cop role in “Zanjeer,” but the movie has let down him in a big way.

As per the latest updates of the movie, the shooting is yet to complete the final schedule. Already known that the first look of the film on August 15th on the eve of ‘Independence Day‘ and the movie is all likely to hit the screens on 7th October.

One more telugu movie in Oscar race

Despite churning out hundreds of movies every year, in arguably one of the biggest movie producing nations of the world, Indian movies have not been able to bring home an Oscar. Given that our movies are only capable of contesting in the ‘Foreign Language‘ category, we have put up a brave face and are tirelessly sending the best of the lot every single year.

The latest to make it’s grand entry into the Oscars under ‘Foreign Film’ category is the epic historical drama “Rudramadevi,” a biopic based on the warrior empress Rudhrama Devi of the Kakatiya dynasty.

The year 2015 is one of the best successful years for Tollywood with extraordinary films like “Son of Satyamurthy ,” “Temper,” “Baahubali,” “Srimanthudu” and “Rudramadevi.” The proud movement for Telugu Cinema is that ‘The Film Federation of India‘ recommended “Rudramadevi” directly to the Oscar committee in the best foreign language category. The film director Gunasekhar confirmed it by his tweet.

Rudramadevi is one of the best films in Anushka’s and Gunasekhar’s career . Anushka plays the title role in this movie where Rana as Chalukya Veera Bhadra and Allu Arjun as Gona Ganna Reddy, respectively gave their powerful massive appearance . Krishnam Raju as Ganapathidevudu, Prakashraj as Shiva Devaiah had their hand in the success of the movie.

Catherine and Nithya Menon entertain by playing other roles in this historical flick. This movie got released in 2015 and got the applause of critics. Now director Gunasekhar is planning to make a story of Rudramadevi’s grandson Pratap Rudra, the last ruler of the Kakatiya dynasty, but nothing seems officially confirmed.

Let’s all hope “Rudhramadevi” wins the prestigious Oscar Award which has been a far fetched dream for Indian films since times immemorial.

Maruthi To Direct Akhil’s Second Film

There are directors whose films are good enough to hold our attention and thus draw our notice with the genius of their film making.  One such director is Maruthi, who rose to fame with the youthful romantic entertainer “Eee Rojullo.”  With this super hit,” Maruthi Dasari has become famous for small and low budget films.  After tasting huge commercial success with films like “Ee rojullo,” “Bus Stop” and “Bale Bale Magadivoy” Maruthi, got the chance to direct superstar Venkatesh.

Maruthi’s “Babu Bangaram,” first outing with a star actor is all set for a grand release tomorrow.  According to the latest updates, Maruthi has come up with a new project and is planning to rope in Akhil Akkineni. With this, he could use his skills as a director and make a full fledged entertainer for the young hero. It seems Maruthi has attracted Akhil with his story line. If Akhil confirms the film, this would be his second film.

Akhil’s debut film “Akhil-The Power Of Jua” introduced him to the Tollywood as an actor and a good dancer as well. But now Akhil seems to be quite choosy in selecting the script. Earlier, Akhil was supposed to act under the direction of Vamsi Paidipally but the film was shelved due to some unsaid reasons. Recently Hanu Raghavapudi’s name was heard but  that also did not work out.

Maruthi is well known for his intelligence and strategic use of available resources in film making. Akhil  however, is yet to confirm the project. Meanwhile, Akhil said that he would finalise it after the release of “Babu Bangaram.” So this crazy combination depends on the response of the upcoming film by Maruthi. If everything goes well, the quirky combo of Maruthi and Akhil would surely enthral the audiences very soon.

10-years-for-andala-ramudu-thetelugufilmnagar.com

Andala Ramudu” was like a breath of fresh air. It is a Telugu comedy entertainer released on August 11th, 2006 and it completes 10 years today. “Andala Ramudu” stars Sunil and Aarthi Agarwal. This film was directed by P.Lakshmi Narayana and produced by N.V.Prasad and Paras Jain.

Sunil was introduced to Telugu film industry as a comedy actor, where the actor has appeared as different comic characters and grabbed the audience’s heart with his comic timing and performance. In the year 2006, he appeared in the lead role for the first time with “Andala Ramudu.”

Ramudu (Sunil,) is an innocent guy and deeply in love with his cousin Radha, played by Aarti Agarwal, since childhood. But Radha loves another person Raghu (Akash,) and wishes to marry him. But in a forced situation, Radha ties the knot with Ramudu. But he stays away from Radha as he knew about her love for another man. The rest of the story is how Radha gets to know about the true colour of Raghu and reunites with Ramudu.

First thing, Sunil surprised everyone with his terrific dances. The audience were in shock at the kind of dances routines he performed. His comedy timing was impeccable as usual. He excelled in his sympathy oriented role without dominating it. The highlight of the film is his performance of the Sri Krishna episode.

This film is a remake of the Tamil film “Sundara Purushan” starring Livingston and Rambha. The director, balanced the comic and sentimental elements well. Music was composed by S.A.Rajkumar.

The surprise package of the film is Sunil dancing and he is almost as good as any Telugu hero ever was, with several nifty movies. The film is set entirely in a rural backdrop and is unlikely to strike any kind of chord with the city crowd. The comedy is mostly physical and loud.

The plus points of the film are Sunil’s comedy, dances, dialogues and the cinematography. On a whole, Sunil scores really well as a lead actor with “Andala Ramudu”. This film opened with terrific houseful collections.

Devi Sri Prasad, recently said that he was honored to be a part of Balakrishna’s 100th film “Gautami Putra Satakarni,”  But now, the leading music composer Devi, is no longer a part of Nandamuri Balakrishna‘s prestigious project “Gautami Putra Satakarni.”

Director Krish wanted really good tunes pronto, as he has less time on his hand for this historical movie about the great Satavahana ruler, Satakarni. But, D.S.P., is known for working at his own pace. Not only that, he would be composing music for a massive historical drama, which is a totally different game compared to working on a regular commercial entertainer.

Krish wanted a single minded focus on this project, but D.S.P., is busy with his other commitments and cannot devote complete attention to this movie. On the other hand, he is working for Megastar Chiranjeevi‘s 150th movie.

So Devi Sri Prasad, expressed his decision to leave the project and, director Krish is in search of a new music director for “Gautami Putra Satakarni.” Buzz is that either maestro Ilayaraja or M.M.Keeravani may replace Devi Sri Prasad.

Balakrishna’s 100th film “Gautami Putra Satakarni” is slated for this Sankranthi.

Tollywood dream girl Charmy Kaur, went unseen after the film “Jyothi Lakshmi” which was directed by Puri Jagannadh. Lack of opportunities turned her into a producer of “Jyothi Lakshmi.”  She was expecting good profits but unfortunately, it was a misfire.

Charmy has started a new business joining Puri Jagannadh in selecting the cast for the films. Getting into the details, the charming beauty became very close to Puri with “Jyothi Lakshmi” and was even involved in his other projects.

The latest buzz is that Charmi is still taking care of Puri’s office and so impressed him with her skills at managing the finances for his “Jyothi Lakshmi” that she was the executive producer for that film and other films as well. However, his producers are not interested in involving Charmy in the money matters.

In order to keep Charmi busy with some work, she was given the casting job and the cheque issuing authority by Puri Jagannadh. Now she is very busy roping the actress for the films and Puri has called upon his trusted ‘friend’ Charmy to take care of the production duties. Hopefully, this joint business venture keeps her busy till she gets another acting opportunity.

Ajith in Bharateeyudu Sequel

ajith-Bharatheyudu-2-thetelugufilmnagar.com

An all time action film “Bharateeyudu,” was one of Shankar‘s sensational hits released in the 1990’s. The movie created waves because it focused on a freedom fighter turned vigilante, bent on rooting out corruption. The film stars Kamal Haasan in a dual role with Manisha Koirala, Urmila Matondkar  and was produced by A.M. Rathnam.  The magnificent soundtrack was by A.R. Rahman. It went on to win three National Film Awards including Best Actor for Kamal Haasan’s portrayal, and his performance has also garnered him the Filmfare Awards.

As per the buzz in the film industry, one of the Shankar’s best films “Bharateeyudu” is going to have a sequel very soon which  will again be produced by A.M. Rathnam. The biggest crowd puller Ajith Kumar has been roped in for the lead role. His recent Telugu  flick “Yenthavadu Gaani,” received a good response.  Ajith is all set to entertain the audience in a different look very soon with “Bharatheeyudu 2” but, it is yet to be known if he will play the dual roles or not!

If our guess is right, Ajith may come up with a role fighting against corruption that is growing in government sectors supporting private companies. The upcoming film “Bharateeyudu 2” with the combination of Ajith and Shankar is creating a huge interest with fans. Currently, Ajith is acting in the upcoming film “Thala 57” directed by Siva. Shankar is busy directing Rajinikanth‘s “Robo 2.0.” Hopefully, one more action oriented film “Bharateeyudu 2” will hit the floors once their present projects are wrapped up.

If this powerful duo teams up, then the movie definitely will be a blockbuster hit. Let us see how far Ajith can do justice to the character in the sequel to the remarkable film “Bharateeyudu.
