Keshava Review: Nikhil Siddharth started his hit streak again? - 19-05-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
The combination of Sudheer Varma and Nikhil Siddharth gifted us the film Swamy Rara which was one of the best comedy and crime entertainers. Now the both together came in
to make out a new film named Keshava and it is going on the saga of revenge drama.

Nikhil Siddharth is having lot of hopes on this movie as his earlier film Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada is some what good in minting collections.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Nikhil Siddharth, Ritu Varma, Isha Koppikar and others
Director: Sudheer Varma
Music Director: Sunny M.R
Producer: Abhishek Nama

NARRATION:
Keshava - NIkhil's parents will die in a car accident during his childhood in which he and his sister will be survived with huge injuries. He grows up and wants to take revenge out for their parents. He want to find out who made this car accident and why. Later on he brings out interesting ways to kill them.

Meanwhile police will be trying to catch the serial killer Keshava and entire police department will go heat on his issue. The film deals with how he took the revenge but did not go caught with police.

SAFE SIGNS:
Nikhil Siddharth's role is very much intense in good script film. The looks of him with beard is so much natural too. He got some well expressions in the entire movie.

Rithu Varma worked as his college mate for Siddarth.

Vennela Kishore character is so unique.

Pelli Choopulu fame Priyadarshi as hero's friend is just fine.

Isha koppikar was taken for police character and the actress really did well.

Keshawa engages the audience with it for sure. First half is very much good and engaging.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The main problem with this movie is second half should have been dealt perfectly well. The director did not concentrate much on the screenplay of second part and it ruined the entire film. The kind of grip in narration interest created on the first half did not pose out for the second half at all. This is not acceptable to normal audience.

Also this film is going to be appealed for special section of audience as it does not have minimum entertainment base unless few laughs. Negative points and boring scenes are dealt a lot in the second half a lot .For B and C centres this movie will surely be a average to below average one.

APNC VERDICT:
On a whole the movie Keshava has some interesting appealing points to discuss with. Director Sudheer Varma grabbed the excellent revenge drama in the first half and lost the same on second half with some illogical and useless scenes. Director would have narrated the film with equal grip all the time. That was missing. Main positive thing to watch for is Nikhil Siddharth's performance songs and cinematography. If at all the second half was good this would be another Karthikeya or Swamy Rara for sure.
Venkatapuram Movie review, The crime thriller didn't satisfy until last frame - 12-05-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Venkatapuram movie makers tried to impress with some interesting notes of trailer and other positive promos.The makers are so eager to bring some different film onto the Telugu cinema. It looked like a murder mystery altogether and lets see how it worked out.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Rahul, Mahima Makwana and others
Director: Venu Madikanti
Music Director: Achu
Producer: Shreyas Srinivas

NARRATION:
Anand - Rahul is a guy with happy going in his life. He works for pizza corner shop. Chitra - Mahima Makwana enters into his life all of a sudden and he starts liking her. Mean time about 4 5 incidents change the life of both. This leads to the murder of Chiatra and the hero knows it only through a TV news.

He was also involved into the case by police. SI Durga prasad - Ajay launches the victim as Rahul who is stated to be the murderer. This lands Rahul into big problem. The questions like What happened to Chitra why Rahul killed her are going to be revealed in the end of the film.

Also Read - Sharwanand's Radha movie review, Not great like Express Raja or Run Raja Run

SAFE SIGNS:
Happy days Rahul turned out as good actor and did his best. He impressed with the looks and action of his.

Mahima Makwana is so cute and was wonderful in her character.

Ajay Ghosh too did a wonderful job.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The bigger minus for Venkatapuram is the first half itself. The dragged scenes are so much boring that it will be testing your patience. Mahima and Rahul chemistry was not shown so great on the screen but with some little rapport Rahul will be flinging to do anything for the actress. This is so illogical and can be questioned for sure. Dragged scenes in the second half are too much worried.

Screenplay was good in parts but when it comes to the climax scenes director looks like so much of wrapping it off. Venkatapuram title itself too has not much justification. The debut couple needs more maturity in chemistry making.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Diractor Venu the new comer has given story and screenplay along with direction for this movie.

Achu Music can be said highlight for this movie. Songs and background musics are so suiting.

Cinematography is another positive point. Where in the major highlight would be the best story director raised out and wrote in.

APNC VERDICT:

Finally, Finally Venkatapuram movie is a new age thriller with some interesting things to discuss for. Story line itself is so much impressive but the new director was unable to handle it really well. The story treatment can be in new way but Venu did not look into it in a better way. The curiosity raised for the interval bang but for the second half it did not carry out really well. The film has a young team working on it but the old saga of screenplay is so annoying. The thriller experiences are caught good by cinematographer for sure. Watch for the performances, songs and cinematography.
Sharwanand's Radha movie review, Not great like Express Raja or Run Raja Run - 12-05-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Actor Sharwanand is bringing up back to back hits like RUN RAJA RUN, Express Raja and Shatamanam Bahvati with some amazing content in his films.Though he has some predictable stories the comedy and fun was taking the films on to a good level. Now Radha is new film of Sharwanand where in the hero is tackling it in non festival season lets see how it worked for him.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:

Lead Cast: Sharwanand, Lavanya Tripathi and others
Director: Chandra Mohan Chintada
Music Director: Radhan
Producer: BVSN Prasad

NARRATION:
Radha Krishna - Sharwanand is a police officer who is transferred to Hyderabad. His attitude is always fun loving and wants to serve the department is such a funny way. He will be getting into an issue with to be chief minister candidate Sujatha - Ravi Kishan.

Radha brings up detailed silent investigation on villain Sujatha and finds out he is a hard core criminal who wants to grab the state into his hands . The rest of film shows how Sharwa tried to stop Sujatha being the chief minister of the state and how Radha faced problems i it.

SAFE SIGNS:
The total film will be run on perfect ought comedy base. Sharwannad as Radha Krishna made it happen long way. Radha is a pure fun loving cop and the character was did superb by Sharwanand.

The character was tailored take the young hero to another level in his career and Sharwa does full justice and comes with good output. His comedy timing and romantic angle was well used by director.

Ravi Kishan from the fame of Race Gurran did his best.

Sharwa and Lavanya's chemistry is good.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The film's biggest minus is its story as no one will show any proper interest on this predictable drama. The hero is not that mass person but the story suits a lot for mass hero only. Villian's track is almost like seen in Race Gurram movie.

After the main twist reveals in second half which one is already predicted by maximum audience movie has no main saga point to watch for the last 15 minutes are quite predictable and routine.

Lavanya is always trying to show herself in some traditional and normal characters which is so quite boring.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Director's safe game is ok but it was not that impressive the last 15 minutes.

Saptagiri comes at parts and did ok.

Shakalaka Shankar comedy worked out

Music is good by songs are not so great on screen.

APNC VERDICT:
On a whole the film Radha is prolonged routine drama with some finest comedy here and there. Sharwa was seen as mass police officer for the first time and he gets decent marks for the character. You can watch it once for Sharwanand, Shakalaka shankar comedy scenes, First half and audible songs. After Mister kind of family movie debacle this film might pinch family audience for sure into the theatres.It has some decent elements on family background so lets see how it is going to work for.
Baahubali 2 Review: Rajamouli raised the Indian cinema standard to another level, Must watch film - 28-04-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
The most awaited films of this generation would be hitting first place with Baahubali and Baahubali The Conclusion for sure. The Rajamouli directorial Baahubali The Conclusion raised lot of hype and bar for the conclusion because of the questions the first part raised out. Basically Prabhas starter film has bigger question Why Kattappa Killed Baahubali and it will be answered with this epic drama. The film released today in theatres and lets see how much impact it left out at the box office and at the minds of audiences.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Prabhas, Rana, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah and others
Director: SS Rajamouli
Music Director: MM. Keeravani
Producer: Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni

NARRATION:
The second part is story of how Amarendra Baahubali was killed and Mahendra Baahubali the son of Amarendra takes the revenge. Amaranedra Baahubali was about to take the king chair in Mahishmati kingdom where in his fells in love with Anushka - devasena mean while.

Also Read - Baahubali 2 day 1 expected collections


Sivagami the step mother of Amarendra who already promised to marry Devsena with Rana - Bhhallala deva cancels the king place with Prabhas and gifts it to Rana in turn gives Devasena to Prabhas. Considerably the distance between Prabhas and Sivagami comes so huge. This leads Kattappa to kill Baahubali and the reason should be watched on screen. 

SAFE SIGNS:
Prabhas is the one whom we should discuss about. He excelled in his professional way as Mahendra Baahubali and as Shivudu too. The way he dealt with the emotions scenes while leaving Mahishmathi and understanding the intentions of Bhallala Deva are pretty much good.

Anushka has got excellent stature in this movie as Devasena and Kuntala Rajyam was shown off with an excellent gesture.

Interval bang was pretty much interesting for this movie where in climax, pre climax episodes will be like never on Indian screen. Kunthala Rajyam was well portrayed with beautiful scenes. All the views in the film will gain lot of attention.

Also Read - First internet review of Baahubali 2 The Conclusion is out

HAZARD SIGNS:
Coming to the negative points there are not many though unless few logical explanations got missing and story was not too strong as everyone thought it would be like. Attire of Baahubali and Rana could have been better. Very little bit lengthy episodes are unable to manage.

Tamanna character was almost zero in the second part. She did not even have a dialogue in this. They tried to make some laughing scenes but it did not work well at all. Kattappa - Baahubali scenes at Kunthala Rajyam are positive on comedy but did not go pretty much awesome.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Rajamouli's hard work and his team's dedication was clearly seen in every part of the film. His vision was captured well on the big screen by all the technicians.

The major highlight for this movie would be Background music and VFX effects. The excellent work of Keeravani and Sabu Cyril seriously showed the reward on screen.
Performances of actors and actresses too are behind the major part done by these two.

The movie had bigger things to discuss for like cinematography and action sequences.

Senthil excelled in it where action stunts are taken pretty much care of. Two war fare dramas were shown in the first and second half consecutively raised the film into another range.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally, Baahubali The Conclusion is one big and wonderful conclusion that Indian panorama would wait for. Indian film history has never seen such a great two part film with huge grandeur earlier. Baahubali is a game changer trend setter and everything in the history of Indian cinema. Collections would be crossing 1000crores for sure worldwide until the full run.

Rajamouli's vision, Senthil's magical cinematography, Prabhas performance, Sivagami's struggle, VFX from Cyril, Keeravani's music makes this Epic war fare drama a must must must watch. Raising the bar of Indian cinema to a greater extent Baahubali the conclusion and Baahubali the beginning both will remain as the pride of Indian cinema.
First internet review of Baahubali 2 The Conclusion is out - 26-04-2017
The famous Umair Sandhu review is out for the most awaited Baahubali 2 movie already. The review was extended to be as fantastic norm as the result. The critic Dandhu states that Baahubali 2 can be easily comparable by Harry Potter series and Lord Of The Rings as well.

The writer states that Mind blowing story screenplay with amazing dialogues have saved the film to a international extent.The writer gave out explanation that box office will get the big time block buster now in soon time. He said the movie will be classical and epic in the history of Indian cinema. Grand sets VFX, sound, editing and cinematography are the higher stated ethical positives for the movie.

The execution by Rajamouli is so much bigger and considerably film is going to mint huge revenue. "No Indian storyteller comes close to what S.S. Rajamouli shows the vision of his screen " The end note by Umair Sandhu.

Coming to the performances issue Umair said that Baahubali 2 had some beautiful and stunning performances from all the actors and actresses in it as the story itself has given some strong and subjective roles to the people in the movie things did work out well.

"Prabhas and Rana should give special mention as per the action of their as the tug of war is carried out so well. Anushka Shetty gave career best performance in the film. Bijjaladeva and Sivagami emotional scenes did manage to leave some good impact. The final answer for why Kattappa Killed Baahuali cannot be expressed though but the reasonable scenes for the epic question's answer did good on screen. Supporting roles from nazzer and Subbaraju are too good." stated Umair Sandhu.

CGI works are the positives in war fare where one would remind the range of a Hollywood action film watching Baahubali on screen.
Varun Tej's Mister Review - 14-04-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Director Sreenu Vaitla is posing out series of plops like Dookudu and Bruce Lee such that he did not get any proper offer for his career as well. The director is so in problems financially too after the disasters. None of the heros gave a chance but Varun Tej tried to work with Vaitla on this basis. Now the film Mister starring Varun Tej and Lavanya Tripati, Hebah Patel is out. Lets see how the film went.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Varun Tej, Lavanya Tripati, Hebah Patel and others
Director: Sreenu Vaitla
Music Director: Mickey J. Mayer
Producer: Nallamalupu Bujji and  Tagore Madhu

NARRATION:
Chai - Varun Tej is the one who lives with his parents in Spain. His grand father Nassar lives in a small village in Andhra Karnataka border. Hebah Patel - Meera comes to visit Spain on some holiday and lives with Chai's family and turns out to be good friend for theirs. Chai thinks that she is loving him but after few interesting scenes he gets to know she is already having a boy friend

Chai will not take it deeper and leaves her. Boy friend of Meera gets a warning at the same time from Meera's brother. Boy friend of her turns against to her and states the situation to his inability. Meera seeks help of Chai and he comes India to bring the couple together where he meets Chandramukhi - Lavyana Tripathi over there. The new woman too is facing problem from this gang and Varun tries to console the things.

SAFE SIGNS:
The positive thing for the movie is Varun Tej's cool action. His styling is good and the dance movements, fight sequences added his own venture. He developed a lot on his plot.

Hebah Patel and Lavanya did their part well.

Other comedians are ok.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The routine plot is bigger time negative thing for the movie where in  villain characters and lot of sub plots ruined this routine drama. The comedy confusion thing was lifted into villian confusion thing by Sreenu Vaitla this time. Sreenu's interest of too many villains  doesn't seem great on a upcoming hero like Varun Tej. Comedy is the bigger point for sreeenu Vaitla film but it was a let down. Second half is not at all good and people are clinching it until climax.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Sreenu Vaitla got some good episodes in Spain and the first half passed on ok range. There are punches on Srimanthudu film and Oopiri as well. Songs on screen are good where in cinematography leads the gag.

Mickey J Meyar did not give the back ground music well at all.

Editing is crispy.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally, Mister film did not bring any even results to Varun tej or Sreenu Vaitla where in both are so eager to bring in a hit. Summer holidays might help some revenue for this movie but there is not at all a perfect content in this film. Rich production failed with worst plot of all. Comedy too was not in great flavour as one would watch Sreenu Vaitla movie for the same. This movie is definitely not recommended.
Kaatru Veliyidai (Cheliyaa)Review: Mani Ratnam's another magic works with some clinches - 07-04-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Director Mani Ratnam is known for some amazing films and takings. The director has always some good and positive atmosphere  in Indian cinema especially when it comes to love stories. Director has made the good comeback of his where in they have got the OK Bangaram a decent hit. Cult classical director Ratnam here comes again with Cheliyaa where Karthi will be seen as a military pilot who chances upon an Army doctor played by Aditi Rao. Lets see how the film went.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:

Lead Cast: Karthi, Aditi Rao Hydari and others
Director: Mani Ratnam
Music Director: AR Rahman
Producer: Mani Ratnam

NARRATION:
Main plot of Kaatru Veliyidai (Cheliyaa in Telugu) opens up in Srinagar of Kashmir. In Rawalpindi prison, prisoner Varun ( Karthi ) recollects his love Leela ( Aditi Rao ) Leela is a doctor who works at military hospital Srinagar, falls in love with Varun who is a pilot at Army base (There is a twist how the prisoner comes as Army person later). The basic story is so different like Mani Ratnam films and he dealt it with some good scenes to discuss for.

SAFE SIGNS:
Everyone will fall with the love of Karthi for the heroine his character as young Army man was dealt with wonders.

Aditi Rao glamour is another big positive thing for the film.

First half has Full of Intense moments considering the Kashmir beauty, the valley wonders.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The routine story is biggest draw back of this film. Along with few meaning less conversations which went pathetically slow and very boring. The chemistry between lead pair is good but looks like so much forced at lot of scenes. Love travel was made so decently well but the reasons for it are unfinding. Aditi rao character needed to be described in another possible way as the character lost out of logics a lot as she says a lot about her profession but leaves everything for hero in untimely manner.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Story seems to be a very normal love story but Mani's taking of their characters with some immense and core interest makes this a feel good at lot times. Mani Ratnam made the lead characters always discusses about the love, marriage and live in relationships.

The masterclass touch is too good and interesting all the way Rahaman's music mildly takes us to all new place and makes us feel the love. Rerecording has done very good storms.

Cinematography stands tall for the entire film.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally, Cheliyaa might be appealing to multiple audience just like OK Bangaram does. AR Rahman did the best magic he can do all the way. Visible views of Kashmir, Leh valley, Camera candid shots, Songs, Back ground music, Karthi's performance are what you have to look forward for. As the film is bagged with rights of Dil Raju in Telugu a decent promotions will bring in some good revenues for the film. Lot of boring and meaningless scenes though but this is not a complete disaster at box office. It will clinch with the support of Mani Ratnam cult fans and multiplex movie lovers.
Venkatesh's Guru Movie Review and Talk - 31-03-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Saala Khadoos is a Tamil and Hindi film where in Madhavan was seen as boxing coach raises a student of his into greater standards. Sudha Kongara the director adopted this film into Telugu which is a big risk where in she got into Venkatesh lead character it actually was  a good experiment. The title GURU was all set for this movie trailer too was interesting. Lets see how guru does in theatres today.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Venkatesh, Ritika Singh and others
Director: Sudha K Prasad
Music Director: Santhosh Narayanan
Producer: Shashikanth

NARRATION:
Aditya (Venkatesh) is an aggressive boxing coach who always has the problems with the sports personalities. After a serious issue with him at the heads of association. Aditya is transferred as coach to young women boxers in Vizag. He goes there without any choice and he gets a slum girl Ramudi and Rithika singh over there.

She is so careless and raw fighting girl he chooses her as boxing candidate and starts up her training. The twist in the tale arises when Ramudiu loves Aditya and not the boxing ring anymore.The film shows how the coach moulded her into positive ways.

SAFE SIGNS:
Victory Venkateh has given some awesome and amazing performance for this movie. Guru is Venkatesh character mark a film and he just nailed it. The emotional characters were good carried by both of them. Venkatesh did not show any useless heroism.

Ritika too did her best and the action of her went very subtle.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The second half is said to be bigger minus for this movie where Jindigi jingidi song did not match with the mood of Venkatehs on screen. The pace of film is so dull at lot times. The film is quite serious and does not have much entertainment. Venkatehs did not display any entertainment with his character too. Guru went technically good but second half is sure a let down.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
The director Sudha focused it so good on interval bang and climax scenes which are very impressive.

Santhosh Narayanan's music was good

Editing is good.

Back ground music too was average.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally Guru movie has some interesting points to deal with Some good scenes including first half, Interval bang and climax fight went on with good note where Sudha Kongara did her best. Though there are some drawbacks like slow dragging narration this weekend Guru will surely give you what you are looking for. Guru is one film which will surely impress you your family as well. Katamarayudu and Rogue are going with some bad talk so lets see how GURU works with positive mouth talk.
Katamarayudu review: This movie brings the mania of Pawan Kalyan back at the box office - 24-03-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Powerstar of Telugu cinema Pawan Kalyan raised the bar of expectations with his earlier film  Sardaar Gabbar Singh and drenched it as a bigger plop in his career. The distributors too faced agony where he made out Katamarayudu a village mass masala film to come back into his arena. Now the film got released into theatres. Directed by Dolly of Gopala Gopala and Tadaka fame this movie has grabbed out all attention currently. Lets see how the film made at theatres

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:

Lead Cast: Pawan Kalyan,  Shruti Haasan and others
Director: SK Satya
Music Director: Kishore Kumar Pardasani (Dolly)
Producer: Sharrath Marar

Also Read - Katamarayudu full story, Exclusive


NARRATION:
Katamarayudu is head of the village near Kurnool. The hero has 4 brothers who are SIvabalaji, Chaitanya Krishna, Kamal and Ajay. Comedian Ali is the lawyer for this family where he gets bail for Rayudu and other brothers in all cases. Katamrayudu does own lot of businesses where the parents of his dies in childhood itself.

Katamarayudu hates women and he stiffs himself for not getting marred, While the brothers wanted to get married and they already has a girl friend each. So they want their brother Katamaratyudu to get married and now they bring in Shruti Haasan who visits their village on a purpose. Shruti starts liking Pawan kalyan and his attitude, Pawan too loves her but doesn't open his mind at all.

Sruthi is the one who hates violence totally. They both get closer before the interval bang, Where she got to see how violent is Mr.Rayudu. She goes on shock and goes out of Katamarayudu's life after this, The second half deals with how Katamrayudu got her back and how he dealt about the family revenge drama of Sruthi Hassan. Nasser plays the father of Sruthi.

SAFE SIGNS:
The film got totally bounced on the shoulders of Pawan kalyan with his dialogues, Manerisms and other drama. First half of the film is so apt for Pawan Kalyan as he went well with an absolute story of comedy and entertainment. Jivvu jivvu laguna song gave goosebumps to the fans. Fights are major highlights and they are about 5 fights in the film.

Shruti Haasan did her best in songs she had some good lines to speak.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The major drawback of the film is story, There is no proper story and the old routine thing was included. The revenge of heroine's father becomes the revenge of Pawna kalyan without any interesting reason. This annoyes the movie lovers to the core. Songs on screen or not that great excluding Jivvu jivvu laaguna. Director Dolly would have taken much care of the quality as well. Cinematographer did not do much in the songs. Climax would have been added like another conceptual fight.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally, Katamarayudu shows how well can a remake movie be fitted into the native language. Dolly adapted Veeram so well that he took the entire theme from the original and wrote lot of own scenes for us. Katamarayudu has the best mass elements Kalyan fans never experienced earlier. With some drags and so so climax which are negatives. Elevations, mass material, completeness, Fights and most importantly Kalyan's one man show makes this routine story a Super Hit.
Gunturodu Review - Manchu Manoj Did his best but with old story - 03-03-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Manchu Manoj is the one who had some hard hitting career with cool ups and downs in his career. The new film of his Gunturodu targeted totally to the mass people all the way. Directed by Satya the film got hit the screens today and lets see how it turned out.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:

Lead Cast: Manchu Manoj, Pragya Jaiswal and others
Director: SK Satya
Music Director: DJ Vasanth
Producer: Sree Varun Atluri

NARRATION:
The story is of a happy go lucky guy in Guntur city named Kanna- Manoj. He goes into a fight with a criminal lawyer named Seshu- Sampath in which he gets very bigly injured. Now the things go upset when Seshu starts looking for Kanna and targets his father who is none other than Rajendra Prasad. Later on Kanna fells in love with Amritha Pragya Jaiswal who is coincidentally sister of Sampath the villain.

The rest of the story deals how the normal middle class guy like Kanna got a war with Seshu and married his sister.

SAFE SIGNS:
The story is so routine where Manchu Manoj made the one man show. The impressive mass avatar of his and new looks are the things to watch for. He did gave some super dialogues and high action fights too.

Sampath is bigger asset for the film as he rocked with his performance. Sampath's  character has been written quite interestingly and he does a superb job as Seshu. Sampath's character is very strong where it lead a good first half as well.

HAZARD SIGNS:
Biggest minus point of this film is very routine and old story. Also there is not much entertainment which is always present in one or the other Manchu Manoj film. The romantic track between the lead pair is also not at all impressive. Climax of the films gone in vain with a silly entry of Rao Ramesh as minister. The film has lot of repetitions of hero villian track all the way. Manoj though showcased good in the film with cinematography but few songs were not putup properly.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
DJ Vasanth's Music is good.

Director Satya did ok with this movie.

Production values are needed to be good.

APNC VERDICT:
Gunturodu on a whole is purely aimed on to the mass movie lovers. Manchu Manoj impresses in new massy avatar. Sampath's performance gives the movie some extreme moments to look for. Dragging narration and repetitive scenes are the big let down. The racy action episodes and Manchu Manoj are the things to watch for. Looks like Manoj needs to wait for another movie to get a massive hit .
Sai Dharam Teja's Winner Movie Review - 24-02-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
With the last film of his Thikka Sai Dharam Tej gained a plop in his bag and now got his bag back with Gopi Chand Malineni. Winner film got released today with the hotness of horses along with Rakul Preet Singh. Jagapati Babu too played some crucial role in this. Winner trailer looked as a commercial potboiler all the way. The average trailer lead to not great expectations on this routine saga. Lets see how the film went on the screen atleast.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:

Lead Cast: Sai Dharam Teja, Rakul Preet Singh, Jagapati Babu and others
Director: Gopichand Malineni
Music Director: S. Thaman
Producer: Nallamalupu Bujji

NARRATION:
Mahindar Reddy - Jagapathi Babu is one of the best jackies in India. He is having millions of assets with him but he leaves out the house for the girl he loves and ignores his father Mukesh Rishi. Later on when the son SIddarth (Sai Dharam Teja) comes into his life his wife dies and Mahindar reddy leads a life feeling son as his world.

Mahindar Reddy's father after that gonna be getting huge losses in his business where the horses are left out on failure nod. Partners of Mahindra Reddy's father wanted to bring back Mahindar reddy and his father plans to create ruckus between father and son Mahindar and Siddarth. He works on it where Siddarth leaves the house with anger on his father Mahindar.

Siddarth has the serious feeling that the horse races are what took his father away from him and he creates more anger on horse races. After 20 years Siddarth works as creative head of new look magazine where in Sitara is also racer he fells in love with her - Sitara is Rakul Preet Singh. But Rakul rejects the love of his. Sitara's father knowing about this love proposal arranges another marriage for Sitara, now as she wanted to escape from this marriage she lies that she is in love with Siddarth.

Now the whole point is who is the new groom for Sitara and how well he is connected with Sai Dharam Teja.

SAFE SIGNS:
Sai Dharam Teja did his best with a good performance.

Jagapathi Babu nailed in his character.

Rakul Preet Singh
is one big positive thing for the movie with her glamour. Horse races visuals are too good.

3 songs on screen worked well.

Also Read - Allu Arjun's Duvvada Jagannadham teaser is out, full of dislikes

HAZARD SIGNS:
Gopichand Malineni got decent hits like Don Seenu, Balupu, Body Gaurd. He has the tag like minimum guarantee director but with Winner he is totally into routine commercial drama. The same old Don Sreenu screenplay has been irked into this film too. Second half is bigger minus where first half last 30 minutes is good. The main story is so routine and lagged a lot till the climax.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Thaman music also did not work out well.

Editing is very poor.

Back ground music too was average.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally, Finally the film Winner may not appeal to the audience where in they are looking out for something new these days. On one side we are taking films like Dhruva and Nannaku Prematho where in Winner kind of routine flicks are so boring to the audience with the same kind of making. The way director focused on same old plot is not recommendable. Sai Dharam Tej and Rakul are the saviours for this film. This commercial potboiler makes this winner a looser. One time watch and might not work at box office too well.
The Ghazi Attack Review: A bold attempt one should not miss to watch - 17-02-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Rana Daggubati keeping aside the franchize of Baahubali has always been into some extraordinary subjects over his career. Though they might be hits or plops but he let out with some good scripts all over. The similar way Rana accepted Ghazi script from Sankalp Reddy which shows in how Visakhapatnam people and port became part of the history to protect the Indian navy.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Rana Daggubati, Taapsee Pannu, Kay Kay Menon and others
Director: Sankalp Reddy
Music Director: K
Producer: PVP

NARRATION:
The movie starts basically from 70s time where Pakistan Army sends a special submarine called Ghazi to their soldiers during the Bangladesh war. Ghazi can reach the Bangladesh only through Indian waters and it was also prepared to destroy the Indian war ship INS Vikrant.

This news comes into the ears of Indian navy authorities and the new mission starts then. The mission is to tackle the Ghazi submarine. The Indian navy brings in S 21 submarine with the team of officers Arjun Varma and others. The story shows how the team managed to bring down the purpose of Indian navy.

SAFE SIGNS:
The attempt itself is the biggest positive point for this movie.

Right from hero Rana Daggubati to producer PVP who accepted this story line is so positively wished.

The young hero Rana seen as main officer with some powerful dialogues worked out absolutely well.

The emotional performances of each and every character stands out for the film. War time scenes gave heart to the film.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The melodrama was missing and more emotional content can be surely added. Tapsee's role too had not worked much with the result. The first half is little bit dull where as the second raised to the peak. For those who expect more VFX and war fare drama they are going to be much disappointed. The action scenes were limited as the total actin sequences are picturized under the water.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
The way director Sankalp Reddy narrated it through out seizes us in the seats.

Back ground music by K is too good and appealing.

Cinematography by Madhi was so crucial at times

APNC VERDICT:
On a whole Ghazi is surely a wonderful attempt which shows the guts of PVP and Rana in one frame. Very unique film that Telugu cinema ever saw. The rare performances and gripping narration is on positive side where regular mass audience are not yet sure to get connected. These kind of films never visit the theatres often that too with this much if technical brilliance, Ghazi is one rare kind of one Don't miss it.
Om Namo Venkatesaya Review- Another epic for the combo of Nag and Raghavendra Rao - 10-02-2017
The combination of Nagarjuna and Raghavendra Rao is always a superb one where in the epics like Annamayya got found between these two. After more than 2 decades now Om Namo Venkatesaya is back with a same Balaji/Lord Venkateswara story line.

This combination earlier delivered the films like Ramadasu, Shiridi Sai etc. Lets see how this one has gone with the people of Telugu states.

NARRATION:
The story as earlier we discussed it is of Hathiram Baba the die hard devotee of Lord Venkateswara. The story deals between Rao Ramesh and Nagajruna who are devotee and antagonist who posts out no entry to few people into the house/temple of Lord Venkateswara.

Hathiram fights for the rights of Venkateswara devotees and finally he gets to see his god as a friend and even he plays with him.

SAFE SIGNS:
Nagarjuna has done a wonderful job especially int he second half he did a splendid thing.

Saurabh Raj Jain who played lead role as Venkateswara Swami is outstanding and he got set perfectly in that role.

Anushka is too good in her role.

Akhilanda Koti Brahmanda Nayaka song picturisation is too good.

HAZARD SIGNS:
Cinematography and editing would have been better for this film. The background music is not that much appealing like Annamayya or Ramadasu.

Comedy scenes with Brahmanandam and few others did not work great. Pruthvi Raj was immensely forced into the script for few comedy scenes. Rao Ramesh character has no proper ending at all.

Glamour dose from Pragya Jaiswal is little bit over.

Jagapati Babu and Anushka romantic scenes are little bit annoying for Nag fans. Jagapati Babu character is not properly used at all.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Director Raghavendra Rao moulded this film into another feeling devotional saga. The story penned by Bharavi itself is very positive one for the film and Raghavendra Rao did not miss an inch to proceed it with his own skills on silver screen.

The Visuals are said to be bigger effective thing for this movie where Raghavendra rao earlier never dealt with VFX totally.

Songs did well as music director Keeravani gave his best out.

Editing was Good.



APNC VERDICT:
Finally , Om Namo Venkatesaya is a optical thrilling devotional drama where in the hero Nagarjuna leads the entire movie with some clumsy screenplay all over. Ragahvendra rao definitely did not do his awesome magic like earlier films but also did not loose the cap totally. Without comparing Om Namo Venkatesaya with Sriramdasu and epic Annamayya one would surely enjoy this saga. Second half is heart drenching and meaning less scenes are a let down. Overall this film is best one to take the family out this weekend. Commercial hit.
Singam 3 Aka SI3 Review - A one time watch for action episodes - 09-02-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Surya and Hari combination has lot of positive impact on the Telugu and Tamil people too with the kind of fast screenplay and action episodes the designed for the earlier movies of Singam 3 Series.The team Singham is now again back with a bang keeping out on a perspective. Singham 3 starring Surya and Anushka in the lead roles now has Sruthi Hassan too.

This movie has got some good production values as well. Lets see how range did SINGAM 3 (Si3) roar at the box office this time.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Suriya, Anushka Shetty, Shruti Haasan and others
Director: Hari
Music Director: Harris Jayaraj
Producer: Studio Green

NARRATION:
This time Singam 3 story dealt in the borders of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Where in the Mangalore commissioner gets killed the total law and order situation in Karnataka state goes out of the government hands and it comes for the rescue of entire state.

There comes AP Cadre Narasimha Surya to keep the state under control. After the control the hero focusses on two main villains As Reddy who is a Mining baron of Iron and exporter too at Mangalore port another guy is based on Australian who is steel baron named Vittal Reddy. Both the villians are now target for the hero.

SAFE SIGNS:
Surya is the bigger highlight for this movie as he focused a lot on the action part in sentimental and louder action episodes too.

Anshuka played wife of Narasimha.

Surya drenched in his role as strict police officer. His getup too was very working. Action episodes in the second half are too gripping. Two songs that went mass people crazy worked out.

Sruthi Hassan was pretty glamorous but nothing much for her tole to do.

HAZARD SIGNS:
Anushka is said to be the negative for this movie as her looks are not at all appealing. Lack of emotional story like earlier films in the same series did not appeal much.

Comedy thread was big asset in the earlier series but now it is the main parameter to diminish the range of film.

Over action episodes scenes and over louder shouts may annoy the common audience.

Australia episodes and chasings in long version gives no interest Climax is very weak.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
In the name of fast and racy screenplay director Hari totally ignored the concept of giving an emotional touch with some logics in it.

Music by Harish Jayaraj is so pathetic and noisy. Harish is now only limited for love stories may be.

High budgeted film and the production values are also very good.



APNC VERDICT:

Totally, Singam 3 will appeal to those who love much bigger action movies. For normal people it is a crazy irritating louder movie drama with action episodes in it. Emotional content is purely missing unlike other films of Singam series.This film is a non stop action drama which might be loved by Surya fans alone.

Director Hari worked well to execute few scenes really well but other things failed absolutely with some negative impact. Over all a one time watch who loved Singam 1 and Singam 2. If mass audience get connected this can bring a decent revenue at the box office.

Finally one Sankranthi comes where his grand daughter Nithya (Anupama Parameshwaran) visits the family and falls in love with Raju the Sharwanand who is her bawa too. The twist states that Jayasudha knows that Raju garu has another plans and it will disturb the entire family. 

The actual plan and intention needs to be looked on the screen only. The love story between Nithya and Raju is good. There needs some answers too where things are going to work for them.

SAFE SIGNS:
The biggest positive thing for this movie is entertainment is on clean basis. The film looks quite natural and every character looks like one among us Sharwanand played some good lovable role too.

Anupama was also good where Prkash raj and Jayasudha carried the emotions in the film.

Climax is one good asset for the film.

HAZARD SIGNS:

Family dramas like this have routine story all the case. This film though carried some twists in the tale certain logics were missed out. There are certain comedy scenes in the film which look quite forced. The pace goes slow down during he second half.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Director could have blended the emotions in some funny way but not routine sentiment all the time.

Mickey J Meyer music is too good.

cinematography can be good.

APNC VERDICT:
On the whole Shatamanam Bhavati is one good family entertainer for this Sankranthi picturized on Sankranthi festival story arena. Though the story line is so outdated the treatment is fine and good. The natural performances are bigger assets for this movie. The decent moments will make this movie a worth watch for sure. Go with your family for this Sankranthi.
