Maharshi Fourth Single: Best of The Lot

No Comments

Maharshi songs composed by Devi Sri Prasad have failed to live up to the humongous expectations on the film.

Choti Choti Baatein song was okay but the other two songs were very mediocre.

Devi Sri Prasad has finally arrived with the fourth single that was launched on Wednesday evening.

The song that goes Padara Padara Padara isn’t a regular commercial duet but a theme song that gives away the plot of Maharshi.

It is an energetic number with powerful lyrics penned by Shrimani and mesmerizing vocals of the veteran Shankar Mahadevan.

The song is reminiscent of DSP’s Aakasam Thaakena from Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana which is also a song with farming as its backdrop.

The fourth single may not be something that rocks the music charts but will surely click in the film with proper situation and striking visuals.

The final song from Maharshi will be launched just few days ahead of the pre release event that will be done on May 1.

First song from De De Pyaar De is a decent hit with Rakul looking at her ravishing best. Here is a glimpse of the second song that is about to be launched soon.

Tough Days Ahead for Jersey

No Comments

Nani’s ‘Jersey’ has crossed coveted $1 million mark but this is not an exceptional achievement for a Nani starrer. The sports drama ought to cross $1.5 million to set a record for Nani.

From long time, Nani’s films are not moving beyond $1.1 million gross. “Jersey” has got great reviews and the word-of-mouth is also strong. This is a right film to go beyond and become number one hit in his career at USA box-office.

But it will face major problem of retaining enough screens in its second weekend as “Avengers: Endgame” will occupy all of them. This is the major worry for Nani’s movie.

Nani’s aim is to join $2 million club as stars like Varun Tej, Nithin, and Vijay Deverakonda have such movies in their kitty.

“Jersey” theoretically is right film to achieve this feat but the timing of the release is bad.

When Will Sharwanand Release a Movie

No Comments

Sharwanand has been working on director Sudheer Varma’s gangster drama from long time. The film went to the sets last year and is still progressing with no date for release.

Although first look of the movie was released in March this year on the eve of Sharwanand’s birthday, the makers have not yet announced the title.

There is no buzz or promotion about this film. Many people have forgotten that Sharwanand is doing this gangster movie. Such is the confusion about Sharwanand’s films.

Sharwanand who scored massive flop with “Padi Padi Leche Manasu” needs to pull his socks up to generate buzz about his movies.

The untitled gangster drama stars Kajal Aggarwal and Kalyani Priyadarshan

Nani Investing Heavily in Film Production

No Comments

Looks like Nani is quite serious about film production. He didn’t take remuneration for his recent “Jersey” since the budget went beyond stipulated target and it was not an out and out commercial film.

He guessed the film would have limitations at the box-office. So, he took partnership in the film thus involved in its film production indirectly.

Last year, he produced “Awe” which was also decent successful venture. This year, he will be teaming up with Dil Raju and Swapna Dutt to co-produce films.

He will be taking partnership in Dil Raju produced Indraganti’s multi-starrer. He will also be acting in and this film will be launched this month end.

On the other hand, he is also bankrolling a small-budgeted movie in the direction of Anudeep that will star comedians Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi. Nani will not act in it. He will produce it with Swapna Dutt of “Mahanati”.

Besides acting in two or three movies a year, he also wants to produce small films.

Twinkle’s repartee to Modi’s ‘gussa’ poke

No Comments

Actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna on Wednesday reacting to social media comments on her actor-husband interviewing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whom she has often criticised, said she was rather pleased with the turn of events.

Modi speaking to Akshay Kumar on Tuesday in a “candid and completely non political” conversation took credit for maintaining peace in the Kumar-Khanna household.

Twinkle next day tweeted she was rather pleased as it showed that the Prime Minister was not oblivious to her existence.

In the interview Modi did not miss the fact that Twinkle has been caustic towards him and said that he keeps a close tab on the social media and follows the couple’s tweet.

“I come to know a lot of things from the social media. I even follow you and your wife and that’s how I know she gets really angry with me, which is good. Since all her anger is focussed at me, your family life must be quite peaceful,” Modi remarked.

Reacting to it, Twinkle on Wednesday tweeted: “I have a rather positive way of looking at this. Not only is the Prime Minister aware that I exist, but he actually reads my work.”

An avid social media user, Twinkle, in 2017, had criticised the Modi government for imposing hefty taxes on sanitary pads.

She juggles many roles as a mother, newspaper columnist, film producer, former film actress and interior designer. Her first book “Mrs Funnybones” sold over one hundred thousand copies, making her India’s highest-selling female writer of 2015.

No Comments

Actress Shraddha Kapoor is shooting for the next schedule of her upcoming film “Saaho” in Karjat in Maharashtra.

Shraddha took to her Instagram stories on Wednesday and posted a boomerang video of her travelling.

She captioned it: “Karjat time! ‘Saaho’.”

“Saaho” also stars “Baahubali” actor Prabhas. “Saaho” is set to hit the screens on Independence Day on August 15 next year.

The film is being shot in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu simultaneously. It promises to provide a pan-India appeal.

Apart from Shraddha and Prabhas,”Saaho” also has an ensemble cast of Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Pandey, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay and Murali Sharma, amongst others.

It has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Director of photography Madhie has lent his creativity to the film, with veteran Sreekar Prasad as the editor and Sabu Cyril as the production designer.

A UV Creations production, the film will be presented by T-Series and its Hindi distribution is being taken care of by AA Films.

Rajamouli about Jersey

No Comments

Rajamouli is an avid moviegoer in spite of being a busy and successful director.

He watches almost all the films on day 1 amid morning show crowds to catch the pulse of the audience. It is probably one of the success secrets of the Baahubali director.

Rajamouli used to be a bit liberal in showering praises upon the movies he watched. He used to put obligatory tweets too.

But of late Rajamouli is being very selective about tweeting about the movies he liked.

He stopped posting obligatory tweets after he is being followed by the National media and movie fans across the nation. Which means if Rajamouli tweets about a film then it is genuinely special.

Rajamouli tweeted about a movie after a very long time and it is about Jersey. He didn’t tweet about a single movie after Geetha Govindam that was released eight months ago. This shows that only a few films are able to reach the bar he has set for himself.

“Heart warming and joyful.. #Jersey is full of superbly written, crafted and Directed scenes… Well done Gowtam Tinnanuri… A film which everyone involved can be proud of..

Nani “Babu”… Just love you anthe..,” tweeted Rajamouli in praise of Jersey.

Saaho Heroine Turns down Rajamouli’s Offer

No Comments

Shraddha Kapoor who is making debut in Tollywood opposite Prabhas in “Saaho” is in much demand.

Though she is good friends with Prabhas, Shraddha reportedly turned down an offer from Prabhas’s guru S S Rajamouli.

According to Bollywood media, Rajamouli offered a role to Shraddha Kapoor for his upcoming film “RRR” to star opposite NTR Jr.

Since Alia Bhatt has been cast opposite Ram Charan in the film and the foreign actress Daisy walked out of the movie for family reasons, Rajamouli reportedly changed his decision not to cast another foreign actress and approached Shraddha Kapoor.

As per Bollywood media, she has turned down the mega project as she is tired of being part of big films that take many months’ time to get finished.

She has been shooting for “Saaho” for the past two years and doesn’t want to do a similar big-budgeted movie like “RRR” that is being mounted on large scale with estimated budget of Rs 350 Cr.

“RRR” has NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn as the principal cast. DVV Danayya is producing this movie.
