Naan Sigappu Manithan, despite the novelty of its subject, falls into the same pit that so any other Indian movies do. Thiru, who also penned the script, messes up the narrative by crowding it with silly songs and sillier situations/ locales and needless subtexts, and in the end narcolepsy looks like a mere excuse to tell this tale of blood-soaked vengeance.

The fight before the interval bang sets a moment for the film and post interval, the film goes into serious mode. There are several funny moments in the second half too.
Written by Vakkantham Vamsi, Race Gurram revolves around the story of two brothers Ram (Kick Shyam) and Lucky (Allu Arjun), who do things differently. While one brother follows rules and regulations, the other tries to achieve it in his own way. How Ram becomes a rival to Lucky? What will happen next? The rest of the film will answer these questions. As usual, Allu Arjun has delivered wonderful performance in Race Gurram. He impresses the viewers with his action, dance and comedy timing. With his trendy costumes, the actor has set a new style statement for himself in this movie. Shruti Hassan has also done her best and rock you with her glamour. Saloni Aswani and Shaam, who have important roles in it, have done justice to their characters. As Kill Bill Pandey and Mr Bean Prakash, Bramhanandam and Prakash Raj tickle the funny bones of the viewers. As MLA Govardhan, Posani Krishna Murali also creates a laugh riot in the cinema halls.

and others have also done justice to their respective roles. Race Gurram has sound production elements and SS Thaman’s soundtracks and background score are the main attractions in the technical department. His songs have already become chartbusters. His background score helps the director to heighten the effect of many scenes. Cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa has also done brilliant job, which is one of the big assets of the film. Especially, his picturisation of beautiful locales in song sequences is a visual treat. R a m - L a k s h m a n ’ s choreography of fight sequences is good and one of the attractions in Race Gurram. The dance choreography is another big asset of the film. The selection of costumes and location is fantastic. The art direction is good and beautiful. Goutham Raju’s editing is also commendable. The director is successful in tapping out right kind of work from all the technical department.
Race Gurram has its share of positives and negatives. This film is a strictly one time watch for those who are craving for entertainment. Movie lovers may not be pleased with this pop corn entertainment and a film that doesnâ€™t take itself seriously.

Abhishek Varman with some superb performances and hillarious punch lines surely has a lot of freshness in the seemingly not so fresh story. Arjunâ€™s innocence and Aliaâ€™s bindass attitude with some wow going intimate scenes will surely bring a wide smile on your faces. On the other side, Amrita Singh as a typical Punjabi mom was too good with some really catchy lines and Revathy as a sweet simple Tamil amma did all justice to her role. The on-screen chemistry between Alia and Arjun surely did wonders for the film and you will just go woo when Alia surprised Arjun with a sudden passionate kiss when the latter admits his love for the Tamil beauty. There are a couple of intimate scenes and kisses which follows and the duo has done it with real ease.

As you all know the ghost ‘Bhootnath’ went back to heaven in the first film (BHOOTNATH, 2008). In the second part, the film opens with everyone in heaven laughing at him as he has failed to scare a child and has caused embarrassment to the ghost community. And so he comes down to earth once again to prove that he is a scary ghost.
‘Cinema integrates people rather than separating them.’ There is a dialogue in the film that says if songs become hit, the film becomes superhit. Do you agree? I think so, if the songs become popular, the film also proves successful at the box office. But then, it is just a dialogue in the film. If it works for us, then it will be great. You have not changed your costume throughout the film. Why is that? Well, I am a ghost. Where will I go to change my clothes? Didn’t you feel you should try out more costumes to make your character look better? No, I did not. Because, think about it ... where will a ghost go to get his clothes?

Why is that you dislike the term Bollywood given to the Hindi film industry? It’s an Indian film industry and we would like to be known as that. I find it a little derogatory as to why have a synonym which sounds similar to what we have in
the West. What is cinema to you? Cinema brings people together. When we sit inside a dark theatre, we don’t really bother about which caste or religion the person sitting next to us belong to. We enjoy the same movie,
hum the same songs, laugh at the same jokes and cry at the same emotion. In this disintegrating world today, cinema is that one medium that integrates people rather than separating them. I am happy to be a small part of the fraternity.

This film also bombed in box office. hero was jayasurya. After that she acted in a couple more Tamil films but they bombed at the box office.

by ace director Krishna Vamsi. This too was a failed attempt. It was followed by another failure with Chanti, paired against Ravi Teja. She finally got a big break in Telugu with Gowri in which she paired with Sumanth. She didn’t have to look back afterwards. The stupendous success of Mass with Nagarjuna strengthened her position in Tollywood. Charmme’s most indistinguishable and critically acclaimed film so far is Anukokunda Oka Roju. It was a heroineoriented thriller and had her playing the lead in it. Her performance in the movie was acclaimed by critics.

harmi Kaur, who will soon be seen in upcoming Telugu womencentric film “Pratighatana”, didn’t take any remuneration because she really loved the subject of the film, which is inspired by the Nirbhaya rape incident. The film’s music composer M.M Keeravani also worked free of cost. “Charmi loved her character so much that she decided to do it free of cost. Keeravani wanted to offer his music as a tribute to Nirbhaya. I think this is their way of playing tribute to her,” the film’s director Thammareddy Bharadwaja told IANS.

Charmi plays the role of a journalist in the film. “I think this is the most powerful role of her career. She fights for the victim and has some very strong lines to mouth. I’m sure the audience will be moved by her performance,” Director Bharadwaja, who is wielding the megaphone after six years, said he won’t take any long breaks hereafter.
One tends to think that you know a fair bit about acting after your first movie but when you work with someone like Krishna Vamsi you realise acting is a life long learning experience.

ampoornesh Babu (Sampoornesh) is the most wanted king pin of a robbery gang that’s behind some daring robberies in the city. The police commissioner who finally nabs him with great difficulty is astonished to learn about his tragic past. Sampoo’s only mission is to save his girlfriend. Attributing the success of the movie to the tremendous reach and influence of the social media, he said the first promo had one lakh hits, which was on par with a blockbuster. He also thanked producers D. Suresh, Allu Aravind and Tammareddy Bharadwaj for their support. Incidentally, the hero, Sampoornesh Babu, fights, sings and dances like other Tollywood heroes. Quirky, buoyant and full of energy, Babu has become a cult figure among his fans.
I think looks don’t matter anymore because audiences want to be entertained. I have always believed in my confidence and that’s what has helped me today. I also feel talent is equally important, and when you have both, I feel nothing can stop you.
Kavya, the dimple-cheeked heroine, said it was fun to act and added that she
would be appearing in guest role in ‘Kobbari Matta.’ Film critic and actor Kathi Mahesh said Hrudaya Kaleyam was a creative take on the present Telugu cinema. Shankar said he used Red Epic photography technology to shoot the film and added that 5-D camera does not give the depth.

he building, begun in 1230, replaced a previous cathedral of the IX century, entitled Santa Maria. The cupola (or Dome) was added in 1264, but in the 1300s the church was completely transformed: the central nave was raised and illuminated by trifora (threearched) windows, the façade was worked on by, amongst others, Giovanni Pisano, the chorus was changed, and above all, the transept was widened, in the ambitious attempt to transform the cathedral into the biggest temple of Christianity. Of this last insane widening, begun in the first half of the 1300s and interrupted by the terrible plague of 1348 (as well as by the collapse of some of the structures), there remain traces of the structures effectively built on the left side of the current Duomo: the so-called ‘facciatona’, the columns of the three naves and a part of the left side, where you can see what is certainly the most brilliant door of the Sienese Gothic. The door opens onto the staircase that leads to the lower Baptistry of San Giovanni.

Lakshmi Manchu has been one of the few actresses in Tollywood, who has been constantly doing films with an edge. Time and again, she has proved herself, and now she is back with an unconventional role in Chandamama Kathalu. On the eve of the filmâ€™s release, we caught up with Lakshmi Manchu for an interview. Letâ€™s see what she has to say.
Q) How is the pre-release buzz for Chandamam Kathalu ? A) The buzz is amazing, and I should thank the media for promoting our film well. I have my fingers crossed, and hope people like my role. Q) What made you accept a role like this ? A) The day I heard the script, I knew I wanted to do this film. Very rarely in Telugu films, one gets to portray a unconventional role like this. I want to break the mould of stereo types with this film. Q) Tell us some thing about your role ? A) I play Lisa Smith, a super model in this film. My character goes through a lot of ups and down, and how if fight back is the whole story.

– I want to break out from the stereo types in Tollywood
Q) There are many stories in the film. Do they have any connectivity with each other ? A) Yes ! at a point of time during the course of the film, they do have a connection. Q) How did you manage to pull off scenes featuring smoking and drinking ? A) Initially I was very sceptical to smoke or drink on screen. But as my character demanded these scenes, I went ahead and did them professionally. A lot of research and preparation went into my role. I observed a lot of lady characters who smoke or drink in films and did it in my own way. Q) Did your dad, Mohan Babu garu watch the film ? A) No ! he did not watch the film. I will show him the film soon and am very eager to know, how would he react to my bold character in this flick. Q) Why have you been so selective with your films ? A) I need to first like the role that I am offered. I just don’t want to do every role that comes my way. My character should excite me and should be challenging enough for me to portray. Q) What’s your take on politics. There have been strong rumours that you are entering active politics ? A) Yes ! I have been approached by many parties to enter politics. I am definitely interested to join politics, but this is not the right time. May be after three or four years, I will surely get into active politics. Q) Tell us about your future projects ? A) I am done with a short film, which I will release once the elections are done. One of my own films is in the pre-production stage, and will soon go on sets.

Darshakendra K.Raghavendra Rao
OF THE MONTH
A Legend of Telugu Cinema from South India,career spans 4 decades during which he has directed 110 films to date and has produced over 25 films in various Indian Languages.
e started his career successfully in 1975 having a long association with the icon of Telugu Cinema, the late N.T.R (ex-chief minister) and continues into the 21st century having worked though 5 generations of stars that include NTR & ANR, Krishna & ShobanBabu, Chiranjeevi & Balakrishna, Nagarjun & Venkatesh, Mahesh Babu, Jr. NTR & Allu Arjun.
e is credited with having longstanding relationships with some of the biggest stars of Telugu cinema noteworthy of them being 12 films with the late NTR ( a resurgence with which he went on to become the chief minister), 8 films with Chiranjeevi ( the most by any director) and 17 films with Sridevi (the most by any director).
90 | MAY 2014 | WWW.CINESPRINT.COM
His foray into Hindi cinema in the 80’s included blockbuster hits like Himatwaala, Tofha, Justice Choudary, Farz Aur Kanoon, Jani Dhost, among others(16 films). He is credited with the resurgence of Jeethandra as the jumping jack of Hindi cinema. As per independent estimates, the box office impact of his Hindi films adjusted for inflation in today’s terms is over Rs.200 crores and puts him among the most successful directors in Indian film history. (Source IBOS Networks). He has also credited with directing all 3 generations of families that include the Late NTR, ANR (Annapoorna Studios), D.Rama Naidu (Suresh Productions) and L.V Prasad ( Prasad Labs & ACS). His assistants include successful directors like B.Gopal, Kondandaram Reddy, S.S. Raj Mauli, Chandrasekar, YVS Choudary, etc.
craft, which not many people have been able to match till date. With the arrival of new actors in early 80s and the themes which gained prominence, K Raghavendra Rao began working with the younger lot. Venkatesh’s debut film Kaliyuga Pandavulu, Nagarjuna, Vijayashanti starrer Janaki Ramudu and Chiranjeevi’s Kondaveeti Raja were few such films. Kaliyuga Pandavulu is a fine example of rise of angry young man, who fights against the atrocities in the society and Raghavendra Rao, who had been dabbling with family dramas and mass entertainers till then, shifted his focus to a more urban milieu. Krishnam Raju starrer Trishulam and Krishna starrer Agni Parvatham are two other such films which depicted people fighting against atrocities. The year 1990 holds a lot of significance in K Raghavendra Rao and Chiranjeevi’s career. The two had joined hands for Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari, a fantasy film which would stand the test of time and needless to say, everything about this film became popular. It was one of the iconic moments in the history of Telugu cinema.
He twice saved the film career of Sridevi. When her first starring role in the Telugu film Anuragalu (1975) flopped, K. Raghavendra Rao cast her in the hit film Padaharella Vayasu (1978), which made her a star in Telugu films.
The ease with which his films appealed to people of all age groups across the state is another proof of his dominance on his

Story Ramudu (Ramarao) is an innocent young man in the guardianship of his uncle Panakala Rao (Rajanala), who is both crooked and wicked. The uncle is ready to usurp the property of his nephew Ramudu, and is just waiting for an appropriate opportunity. In the meanwhile, he is made to attend to all the domestic chores. Ramudu, unable to bear the torture, runs away from home. Bheema Rao (Bheemudu) is interested in staging plays which his mother strongly disapproves. After he comes back home from a stage play, he is taken to task by his mother. In order to escape the wrath of his mother, Bheemudu flees his home and lands in the nearby city.
Both of them enter the same hotel and unexpectedly interchange their places. Thus Ramudu entering the house of Bheemudu, falls in love with Santhi and Bheemudu, who now takes the place of Ramudu falls in love with Leela. Bheemudu, who is in the place of Ramudu, now understands that he has to bring Panakala Rao to senses so that the property that really belongs to Ramudu, should be restored to him. Ramudu, now in the role of Bheemudu, starts enjoying the love and affection of the new family members. However, Panakala Rao comes to know of this change of places and attempts to take advantage of this situation. At the end Ramudu and Bheemudu turn out to be twins who got separated during the Godavari Pushkarams. All ends well in the film ending with Ramudu tying the knot with Santhi and Bheemudu with Leela.
Ramudu-Bheemudu was remade in Hindi as ‘Ram Aur Shyam’ by Vijaya Pictures, with Dilip Kumar, Waheeda Rehman and Mumtaz. This picture totally changed the ‘tragedy king’ image of Dilip Kumar and gave him a new image.

Shekhar Kammula, has always been associated with some meaningful films in the past. He is now back with a suspense thriller in Anamika. The movie is slated to hit the screens.
Q) Why have you chosen to remake a film like Kahaani ? Basically, it was not my idea. When the producers approached me to direct this film, even I was apprehensive. After seeing their conviction, and the current scenario in India, I decided to go ahead with this film. Q) Why did you choose Nayanthara as the lead. Did you consider any one else ? We selected her because of her popularity in both languages. Names like Anushka, Anjali and some other new faces were also considered, but we went ahead with Nayanthara. Q) Coming to Nayanthara, Why is she not promoting the film ? I donâ€™t have much say about her promotional activities. I thought promotion would never be a problem, as some huge corporate houses were involved. But now her absence itself is creating a lot of buzz for the film.

Q) Why did you take the help of Yendamuri for this film ? I always wanted to work with Yendamuri from a long time. When I decided to make this thriller, the first name which came to my mind was him. He is a master of thrillers, and was the right person for our guidance. Q) You have gone without the pregnancy factor, which was the biggest USP of the original. Any particular reason for this ? Every one knew about the suspense factor from Kahaani. I deliberately went without it, so that I could bring out more emotions with a normal person who is in problems. Q) You have always worked with new comers. How was it working with Keeravani ? I had a great time working with Keeravani on this film. He has given some great music, which is a big plus for the film. Q) Anamika is a completely new genre from your films. Did you find it tough ? The writing was a bit tough. Once I was done with the main script, I had no problems with the film. You can get to see a two hour high voltage thriller in Anamika. Q) What about the Tamil version. How are things going on for the release ? Things look equally good for the Tamil version. It is getting a much bigger release in Tamil Nadu, and the hype surrounding the film is quite good. Q) If you can recollect, all you films have been releasing with mega family hero films. Any particular reasons for this ? Laughs ! I have not thought about that any time. But this time, I know that Kotta Janta is releasing with my film. It is just a co-incidence and was never planned. Q) What are your future projects ? Once I am done with Anamika, I will be making the Happy Days Hindi remake. Salman khan is co-producing the film. Q) Finally why should people watch Anamika when everyone has seen the original ? According to me, most of the common public has not watched Kahaani. The essence of the film is same, but the way I have executed in Telugu nativity, makes it interesting. Five minutes into my film, you will never remember Kahaani.

Star Gazing Aries
Venus will be in Aries between May 4 and 30th. Your love life will be very agitated in bad but also in good. Some couples who are together for a long time may be fed up of the routine, and they will shake their partner or their partner will shake them up. Other Aries may meet somebody, feel love at first sight but then discover that the story is not that simple and that you should take more precautions with your feelings. After the 24th, you see clearly what you should do: give it a try or break up. At work your progress are fantastic, you deserve a raise.

A new love story may start this month and it will be exactly the way you want after a complicated beginning. You will be right to follow your instinct and be patient.
The end of May will be really good for you, recognition for all the good work you accomplished the last month. You also have a better attitude, more positive and happier. Everybody enjoys your company more than usually. Only one person will not be so happy because of misunderstanding, like someone who does not like your sense of humor. Love is complicated, someone from the past wants to come back and you are not willing to do that. Or a friend wants to date you and you see the person as a friend, and nothing else. At the end of the month you may meet somebody with an age difference.

Nothing keeping you in bed though, so you keep working, no rest. Love is exciting for Leos in May. You feel you have power over your partner, don’t push the limit even if you are adored you should not take advantage of it. Give him or her some space for free choices.

The Sun gives you a great energy to work but also to have fun. You may celebrate several birthday parties, one with the family and a bigger one with your friends. You will feel frustrated about your love relationship, you have a feeling that he or she is not considerate enough, too busy with friends, and not listening. You will express your feelings of insatisfaction. Your partner will change his or her attitude on the 30th, next month will be romantic. At work, you are really busy because you want to enjoy your weekends completely free of unfinished business.
Mid-May will be a period of big interrogation about love. If you are single you understand that some parts of your attitude are not encouraging any potential partner. And if you are in a relationship, you need to be more open about who your partner is and respecting that he or she is different from you and that you are not “the norm”. Remember that you loved that person for your differences at the beginning. At work, you give the best of yourself, fixing problems that are not even your concern, but if you can do it, you will. That is an excellent attitude.
Enjoy the energy you keep having, month after month, 2014 is an energetic year for the Libras. If you are in a long-term relationship, lots of disagreements will occur: family, money, sex, children, everything will be an opportunity for a drama. Fortunately after the 23, you will be in peace again, you will have emptied your basket of frustration. You are back to passion at the end of the month, enjoy each minute of it. Work is cooperation this month and you cannot do any ride on your own, you need help and support, take it, your boss is asking you to share more.
Sagittarius What an exciting month for you Sagittarius! You are invited to birthdays, engagement parties, weddings etc… you say yes to all. You bring a positive energy and parties would not be complete without you. Your joy is infectious. Love is passionate and you play games, cold and hot, cold and hot again. You want to tease your partner, don’t push too far, if he is a Virgo or a Capricorn he or she may not understand the rules of the game or even that it is just a game. At work, you have to focus, you spend too much time on social Medias, sharing about your exciting life.
Saturn and Jupiter are really well aligned this month and you will have the feeling that all the different areas of your life that were not working well are finally finding an arrangement or a clarification. Your long-term efforts are finally paying off. Keep working at fixing your life. What you do now is very important for the future of your destiny.

You take care of your health by eating healthy, you will get nice results and feel really good in your belly.
Capricorn You talk a lot with your loved one, you express the reasons of your moodiness and you want to make efforts to change it. Pluto is still working on you but it makes you conscious of others and how you can hurt them or affect them. A couple in crisis is around you and you try to help them to communicate, playing the role of a mediator. You are a great listener but in the end, you may see no solution for your friends. Let them sort things out. Your skin is bothering you, check on the solar products you are starting to use. Don’t use old ones.
Aquarius On May 7th 2014 Mercury will enter Aquarius’ house of love and eroticism, and the atmosphere will lighten up: the tendency towards flirts will grow and the attitude will become more playful, more cheerful, more open to experiments.You might now read about sex, find out useful information for the private life or try new things, not experimented before. Attraction will be stimulated by communication and by intellectual compatibility.The last decanate of May 2014 will be a real treat, though: the Sun (the ruler of Aquarius’ house of couples) will also enter Aquarius’ house of love.
Pisces You are in an interesting financial period. You may get more money on one hand and lose or spend more money on the other hand. You may just feel ready to splurge as some bonus comes in and instead of saving it, you just spend it all. You are not going to be reasonable, but you will not put yourself in danger either. Some discussions about money will happen if you are in a long term relationship, you feel you are more generous than your partner. You don’t get along well with a brother or sister until the end of the month. Just back up for a little while and the clouds will disappear.
