Star Cast: Sunny Deol, Amrita Rao, Urvashi Rautela
: Anand Raj Anand, Sonu Nigam
Anuj Sharma, Sangeeta Ahir
A must go movie for someone who love watching patriotic films
12 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
Sunny Deol gives a threatening and extremely angry performance as the honest collecter. There could be no doubt in the fact of appreciation from audience. On the other hand, newcomer Urvashi Rautela is refreshing and looks promising. At the same time Amrita Rao gives a good performance. The evil character portrayed by Prakash Raj looks convincing. The rest of the cast has done a good work for the movie.
STORY “Singh Saab The Great” tells us about Saranjit Singh Talwar(Sunny Deol) who’s an honest collector out to reform society. A character who’s spontaneous and takes pride in his honesty, he loves his family and is ready to do things that are morally right. The central theme of “Singh Saab The Great” is “Badla Nahin, Badlav”. Saranjit’s honesty is not
acceptable to Bhoodev Singh (Prakash Raj), leading to rivalry with him. Finally, Saranjit is framed in a case and blamed to guilty of bribery. He decides to fight the injustice and dominant corruption not by revenge but by reforming society. Saranjit keeps it in thought that there is nothing great in revenge but the challenge lies in forgiving.

Star Cast: Imran Khan, Kareena
Kapoor Khan, Shraddha Kapoor...
Imran Khan comes up with a fairly decent act, but lacks certain intense expressions, required in emotional scenes.
14 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
STORY The story of Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is about Sriram Venkat (Imran Khan), a young architect and his struggle to cross a bridge... a bridge that bridges the love and gap between two people.
begins and ends at home. Whilst Dia felt that you have to be the change that you want to bring about.
Venkat is attracted to Dia (Kareena Kapoor), a passionate, strong-headed, young activist from Delhi. Venkat’s attraction towards Dia was physical initially but then got emotional and finally veered into complex territories resulting in a clash of ideologies and mindsets which drove them apart. Bitterly. Sriram believed that charity
However Sriram realizes that he is not over Dia and still loves her and that she is the best change that ever happened... and will happen to his life. But Dia has moved on and is now in an obscure village in Gujarat called Jhumli. Will Sriram be able to win back his love? or it’ll be an unsuccessful love story in Venkat’s life?
Thanks to Kareena Kapoor, who breathes life into the movie and excels in her performance.
Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is enjoyable and pleasant till a point, after which all your expectations from the flick goes crashing down, thanks to Imran Khan’s pathetic expressions. WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013 15
Star Cast: Venkatesh, Ram, Anjali, Shazahn Padamsee
: S. Thaman
K. Vijaya Bhaskar
Suresh Babu, Sravanthi Ravi Kishore
Main aim of the movie is to entertain audience with comedy scenes but the very comedy part has failed horribly. Out of all Rasas, Hasya Rasa is the toughest to perform.
16 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
Only Venkatesh’s performance and Ram’s dances and Jaya Prakash Reddy’s variety role are worth seeing. Heroines have no scope to show their acting talent. Even the Venkatesh’s funny dialogues of English were felt exaggerated some times to irritate rather than amusing. Brahmanandam, MS Narayana and Ali gave some relief from boring but they were understandably given only short time.
STORY Masala Movie is a Makki ki makki remake of Bol Bachchan without adding any Telugu flavor to it. Rahman (Ram) and Sania (Anjali) are siblings whose property is in dispute in the courts. As living at their native place became difficult for them as Rahaman do not have a job to survive. They leave the place for Bheemarajapuram where Balaram (Venkatesh) lives. Balaram is a powerful person in the village who can
never tolerate a person telling a lie but Rahman tells lies forced by the situation and goes on telling lies to cover previous lies. It makes his life miserable and a laughing subject to the audience as the film makers aimed. What happens to Rahman who made his name as Ram when the truth has to be spilled is something to be seen on screen.

STORY The story of Venkatadri Express happens in one night. The family of Sundeep (Sundeep Kishan) is heading to Tirupathi on the Venkatadri Express for the wedding of his brother (Brahmaji). What happens when he misses the train will form the crux of the story.
Venkatadri Express is a decent fun-filled family entertainer
The credit for running a successful show goes to debutant director Merlapaka Gandhi, who has managed to get everything best in place. As an actor, Sundeep Kishan, who has already proved, has reached another height with his perfect comedy timing in Venkatadri Express Rakul Preet Singh does not have enough scope to prove, but she has done her best to do justice to her role.

Star Cast: Arya, Anushka Shetty, Selva, Padu Raman

Pearl V. Polturi
ANALYSIS Full marks to the technical brilliance. But the decision to watch Ilies between whether you love watching abstruse movies or purely entertainment flick. If you love to see the former, donâ€™t miss it. 20 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
Arya looks good in never-before seen costumes. Anushka Shetty looks wonderful at action sequences.
STORY Irandam Ulagam has two separate worlds and it is about the stories that unfold in a parallel universe. Ramya (Anusha Shetty) has a liking towards Madhu Balakrishnan (Arya), but he initially refuses her offer for marriage. But in the dream world, Arya tries to woo Anushka. After turning down Ramyaâ€™s offer, Madhu falls in love with her and approaches her to marry her, but this
time, she rejects his offer citing that she has found another man. How he tries to win her heart and change her stand form the crux of their story. In the other world, Arya struggles to impress Anushka, who is a tough woman. There is also a plot of two clans fighting over Amma (mother love). The story takes a little interesting turn when Arya, on Earth, meets the people of other world.

Villa without any expectation and enjoy the thrilling ride.
22 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
ANALYSIS Firstly, the credit for churning out a brilliant movie should go to director and newcomer Deepan Chakravarthy. Performance wise, Ashok Selvan and Sanchita Shetty are just okay. The biggest hero is editor Leo John Paul. His crisp editing stands out as a winner.
STORY Jebin (Ashok Selvan) is a aspiring writer. He finds it difficult to get a publisher and his fatherâ€™s untimely death makes him emotionally weak. His girlfriend Aarthi (Sanchita Shetty) does her best to motivate him and keeps his spirits high. His father has left behind a villa, which he came to know from his family lawyer. At this juncture, Jebin decides to publish his debut novel on his own by selling the villa for a fancy price. Well, when he visits the house, he likes it very much. He changes his mind and decides to keep the villa for himself. When he plans to start his work on second novel in the villa, his life takes an ugly turn and leads to more unfortunate incidents.

Thira is a treat to the Malayalam movie lovers, who love something different from the usual. Sit and enjoy the two hour journey.
ANALYSIS Once again Shobhana proves why she is still one of the best in the industry. The surprise factor is Dhyan Sreenivasan. He just excelled through the role of Naveen. Cinematography by Jomon T John is appealing. Music by Shaan Rehman is yet another boost to the movie
24 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
STORY Rohini Pranab (Shobhana), who apart from her job of a doctor also runs an organisation for women which acts against women trafficking and helps orphaned girls. Things get into trouble when some girls from the organisation get kidnapped. Rohini sets out on a mission to find those
who are behind her husbandâ€™s murder and who have trafficked the girls. On the same path, we are introduced to Naveen (Dhyan Sreenivasan), who is in search of his kidnapped sister. Naveen and Rohini meet by chance and come to know that they have the same goal. Rest of the movie focuses on their mission to find the lost ones.

Nadan is a treat to the movie lovers, with neat direction, pleasing music; and adding to that, excellent cinematography and some spectacular performances make the movie more impressive.
STORY Devadas, who is not happy with his marital life, is living separately from his wife Sudharma (Sajitha Madathil) and his children Priyamvadha (Malavika Menon) and Malu. In the flashback scenes, we are shown how the happily living family got separated. Devadas falls in love with Jyothi (Remya Nambeesan), who joins the troupe as a new lead female artist, which causes Sudharama to leave him. Rest of the movie deals with the tragedy Devadas faces in his personal and professional life.
ANALYSIS Jayaram has carried the role of Devadas to sheer perfection Remya Nambeesan as Jyothi and Sajitha Madathil as Sudharama are okay in their roles. Music by Ouseppachan is perfect with apt BGMs and songs that syncs well to the mood of the movie. Other sections too, be it the make-up or costumes, all are well fitted and suit the characters.
WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013 27
STORY The movie starts with the love story of Ajay (Yogesh) and Arundathi (Bhama). They find difficulty to express their love as they are shy. Like every other romantic movies, here also there is an obstacle in the form of a villain played by Tilak, who will be locking horns with Ajay to win the heart of Arundathi.
28 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
Slow pace in the first half. Watch the movie only if you are Yogishâ€™s fan or else avoid it.
ANALYSIS Camera work of Cine-tech Soori, Abhiman Raiâ€™s music and the action scenes composed by Different Dany are the main highlight of the movie. Yogesh is successful in doing the stunts, which is choreographed by Different Dany. The movie is filled with the multi-talented actors in the supporting roles.
WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013 29
STORY Sweety Nanna Jodi deals with the story of middle class girl Priya (Radhika), who hates rich people for their attitude. Siddharth (Aditya) plays the role of multimillionare, who will be very affectionate towards his mother (Ramya Krishna). His mother will be separated from her husband (Jai Jagadeesh).
Star Cast: Adithya, Radhika
Kumaraswamy, Ramya Krishnan
: Arjun Janya
30 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
Ramya Krishna will be more concerned about her prestige in the society and gives value only for money. Siddharth falls in love at first sight with Priya. When he comes to know that Priya hates rich people he portrays himself as a poor guy, and wins her heart. Ramya Krishna, who gets to know the status of Priya, tries to separate her from Siddharth, without her sonâ€™s knowledge.
ANALYSIS Sweety Nanna Jodi is another feminist movie with Vijay Lakshmi Singhâ€™s direction. The audience will not be disappointed because it is filled with two glamorous queens - Radhika Kumarswamy and Ramya Krishna.
Aditya has played the role of a helpless man, who gets caught in between the catfight of his mother and love
Radhika is seen as a modern girl. This movie comes to her as a big break as she has proved that she is still young enough to play the female lead in Kannada movies. Vijaylakshmi Singh is not only successful in giving comeback to Radhika, but also for Ramya Krishna with the movie.

Scarlett Wilson’s Item Song In Vijay’s Jilla Multilingual actress Scarlett Wilson is returning to Tamil cinema again. The actress, who had entered Kollywood with Vishal Krishna’s Samar, is making her comeback in Vijay’s Jilla.
Kamal Haasan’s words make Vivek a Hero Vivek fondly addressed as Chinna Kalaivanar for his satirical style of comedy remained one of the USP’s of the film he acts in, until a few years back. Though he neither lost his witty sense nor entangled himself in a political brawl unlike his contemporary Vadivelu, he is rarely seen in films nowadays. However he made a mark as a Police Constable in Surya’s Hari directed Singam 2 .
Sarika’s Book on Kamal Haasan Having been in wedlock with the man most looked up to, for sixteen years, actress Sarika knows multiple shades of Kamal’s colourful life. especially that his dear daughters shall not know the intricacies of his arduous journey through the years, Kamal Hassan has turned down the book and dissuaded Sarika from publishing it, much to everyone’s disappointment.

Goliyon ki Rasleela RAM LEELA World’s classic love stories Romeo-Juliet, Laila-Majnu, HeerRanjha, Shirin-Farhad, set in different cultures have one thing in common - the strong will to unite and remain together against all odds. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest creation Ram Leela is nothing you haven’t seen or heard already, it is the old RomeoJuliet romance, reworked and set against the backdrop of guns and vengeance. But this one will hit you right in the heart. Featuring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the leads, Ram Leela is a high-voltage romantic drama, that will renew your faith in love. Cloaked in the violent love story, Ram Leela is a message that could not have been better timed.
WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013 39
In Focus Deepika, this is undoubtedly a fascinating year for her. She gets into prominence with another excellence through the mischievous Leela who willingly loses her heart to her enemy and stays true to her love even when circumstances change.
A cinematic genius like Bhansali, has undoubtedly taken an altogether different perspective in taking up a common plot as Romeo-Juliet. Not just that, but redefining the epic love saga with an innovative twirl is indeed worthy of praise. Bhansali caliber in causing to penetrating unnatural elements into every sequence accompanying striking brightness in ever frame. The vigorously energetic elements into his characters and passion and sensuality in his leads is truly psychologically overwhelming. At the same time absolutely expected from Bhansali with his trademark lavish sets and excessively high dance sequences makes it all more glamorous. 40 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
Ranveer plays the robust Ram accompanying not easily excited self possession while frequently moving briskly around in a well-shaped body at the same time frequently breaking into killer dance moves. Ranveerâ€™s transition from a charming guy to a desperate lover is overwhelming
Bhansali creates a web of romance, hooliganism and rivalry, all woven beautifully and with great elan. Ram Leela is visually extravagant, sporting an amazing variety of colours, lighting and visual flair, showing off breathtaking and intricate dance sequences and exuding catchy and melodic music. For all its hype, grandeur, money, blood, sweat, music, tragedy, Ram Leela is a film that will be cherished forever in the history of Bollywood.

RAM POTHINENI Ram is the son of Murali Pothineni, the brother of noted film producer Ravi Kishore Pothineni, popularly known as Sravanthi Ravi Kishore.He was born in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, but was brought up in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. He did his schooling at Chettinad Vidyashram and St.Johns School, Chennai. Ram made his debut in 2006 with Devadasu and the film went on to become a blockbuster, running for 175 days in over a dozen centers
WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013 49
He recently Starred with Daggubati Venkatesh in Masala, the remake of the Hindi film Bol Bachchan which was directed by K. Vijaya Bhaskar and jointly produced by Sravanthi Ravi KIshore and Suresh Babu. He got good response form the Critics and audience.
50 WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013
INTERVIEW WITH RAM You seem to have a very fresh look in the film… Yes. Basically my character has two shades in this film and if you have seen ‘Bol Bachchan’, you will realise why I have a very different look in the film.
You have worked with a senior hero like Venkatesh for the first time. How did you feel? Was there any nervousness? No, I was not nervous. I was excited. Everyone looks at things in their own way. For example, if someone is getting ready to do a bungee jump, he/she might feel excited or nervous. It is just the way you look at things. I basically get excited when I do such stuff. I had a great experience with Venkatesh garu. I enjoyed doing the comedy scenes with him.
What are your upcoming projects? Honestly, I have not decided anything. I am buying scripts and keeping them aside. I am also listening to big banners and directors also. Tollywood is currently giving more importance to combinations rather than scripts. I do not want to fight that trend. I will go with it but at the same time, I would like to do some things my way.
What do you look for in a script? I really don’t know. If I like a script, I can tell you minute details even after a year. But if I don’t like it, I just can’t remember anything about it. When someone narrates a script, I will think about 4 – 5 different ways in which the story can move forward. If the narrator comes up with a 6th way, I probably will get excited about it. I personally like entertainment a lot.
Do flops upset you? In the days after ‘Jagadam’, I was quite depressed. “preminchina ammay ni intlo oppukokapothe, entha depression ostundha ala undedhi” (Laughs). My career has a lots of ups and downs, like the Indian Stock Market. I am more balanced now and I keep learning from my mistakes.
Any regrets? I can’t call them regrets, but the most difficult phase for an actor is when he knows that the film will bomb but is hoping that he is wrong. When I sign a film, I trust either the script or the director. Convince me or get convinced. I may not like what a director says, but I might go ahead because I trust the director’s capability. Some of them have not worked out, but no regrets. (Smiles)
Who is your anchor in life? From an industry perspective, pedananna garu is there. I am very close to my family. Basically, an actor needs balance. There are instances where it is easy for you to snap. For example, a relative might be dead but I might need to go and do a comedy scene. So, there will be moments of eccentricity for an actor.
How do you spend your free time ? I spend a lot of time with my family. I also try to come up with new concepts, be it in dance or with respect to scenes etc. I feel relaxed when I do that. WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | December 2013 51
