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:

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.

Also Read - Singam 3 Aka SI3 Review - A one time watch for action episodes

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.
Shatamanam Bhavati Review - Sankranthi's biggest wholesome entertainer - 13-01-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Dil Raju is the biggest positive point and selling out point for a Telugu Cinema all the time. The new film of his is hitting the screens finally titled Shatamanam Bhavati starring Sharwanand and Anupama Parameshwaran in the lead roles. Dil Raju is turning out to be one good family producer these days. Lets see how  Director Satish Vegesna handled this project.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Sharwanand, Anupama Parameshwaran, Prkash raj, Jayasudha and others
Director: Satish Vegesna
Music Director: Mickey J Meyer
Producer: Dil Raju

NARRATION:
The movie is having a backdrop of Atreyapuram village in which Raju Garu - Prakash raj lives a peaceful life along with Jayasudha and grand son Sharwanand - Raju. Raj Garu is a happy person but he is always bothered about the facts that his sons and daughter who live abroad hardly visit him.He is not happy that they never visit but he upsets all the time when they plan and fail to come.

Also Read - Gautamiputra Satakarni Telugu Movie Review

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.


Also read - Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150 Movie Review


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.

Gautamiputra Satakarni Telugu Movie Review - Sluggish war drama with dialogues as main asset - 12-01-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA: Satakarni the greatest Indian warrior who ruled the entire country keeping in Amaravathi as his capital in 2nd century is a bigger famous personality not much known to Indian people. Greeks have the idea of Satakarni and how he wanted to keep peace in entire country by conquering everything under his roots. Krish got this epic saga on screen with none other than Nandamuri Balakrishna. NARRATION: Gautamiputra Satakarni the greater warrior's final and exhaling chapter is being discussed in this movie. Satakarni takes the nearer places along with Saurashtra into his kingdom and makes everyone his proclaimed Kings now there is Demetrius who wants to rule the India and wants to be the next Alexander. But Satakarni who hates to see foreign kings on the Indian soil just holds them still and smashes out. SAFE SIGNS: Sai Madhav Burra Dialogues are said to be major positive thing for this movie where the way Balakrishna uttered them are too good. Interval bang scenes and first 20 minute are major highlights. Balayya just nailed in the character of Satakarni upto the emotion. Hemamalni did her best as Gautami Balashri. Shriya is so glamorous in this age. HAZARD SIGNS: The biggest minus for this film is Krish did not explain who is Satakarni but he just got straight away into the story. Even then the story did not take place but Satakarni keeps on going dealing with wars back to back. Movie moves to the way where in hero deals with either war or fight in between there are very few scenes. VFX is better than Rudramadevi but when compared to Baahubali it has nothing to do with at all. The war episodes can not be compared to Baahubali or atleast with Rudhramadevi. Krish should have taken proper care to explain the saga of Satakarni first and then the intro should have happened. The look of Balakrishna is so worst and can't be loved by their fans either. ADDITIONAL PHASE: Chirantan Bhatt's Background music was a positive thing for interval bang and climax VFX is better than Rudramadevi. Cinematography could have been better. APNC VERDICT: Finally, Gautamiputra Satakarni is a Sluggish war fare drama in which Balakrishna nailed in the lead character. Director Krish would have concentrated more on story rather than on war fares for sure. The short run time is a possible positive thing for this film. Considering the festival season there might be some good weekend collections but a long run or hit strategy might not work for sure. Watchable for once.
Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150 Movie Review - 11-01-2017
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Along with Baahubali Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150 is the most excited movie of the years 2016 and 2017 combined. The Mega star who is making his comeback into Telugu cinema after about 9 years is pulling his euphoria at theatres from the past 2 3 days. Directed by Vinayak and produced by Ram Charan himself this movie has Kajal in the lead role. Everyone are so excited for this film including the industry heads too. Lets see how it has gone in the
theatres finally.

NARRATION:
Khaidi No 150 is Khaidi name of Kaththi Seenu as he is a cheater and small thief in the area. Who is a resemblance of Shankar the guy works for the problems of Farmers in the state of Andhra and Telangana. Seenu meets Shankar in some stunning situation and replaces himself in the post of Shankar later on.

Seenu goes to know that Shankar is one of the bigger person and scientist who helps the Farmers but how the corporate is killing out them. Suddenly the hero Seenu realizes his potential and starts standing for the poor farmers. There the war between Seenu and Corporate sectors starts which has some twists and shocking turns too.

SAFE SIGNS:
This movie was a remake from Kaththi where in Vijay played the lead role. Obviously Chiranjeevi the come back mega star stood as the one and only pillar for this entire film.

Before Chiranjeevi the subject itself was a far standing one.

Kajal was sticked to glamour role only.

Interval bang, Coin fight, Tunnel scene, Climax were bigger highlights for this film.

The new case of showing in Farmer's problems in some commercial aspects are too good.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The movie has some good adaption but few scenes did not disclose very much like the original Kaththi. The makers should have shown some care at that times. Few scenes worked where Chiru was seen in artificial action. There are few comedy scenes but they did not work really well. Movie lagged a bit in the first half. Second half is more racy.

Back ground music is bigger highlight for Tamil film while in Telugu it was a bit let down.
Vinayak's several moods from villian are annoying. There are scenes where Kajal looks much younger than Chiranjeevi.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:

VV Vinayak did the best job in adapting it into Telugu version.

Mega star just nailed a ton with his kind of steps and moves for the songs given by DSP..

Cinematography was too good and few shots were best highlights. Cinematographer Rathnavelu managed to show Chiru in some good young nods all the way.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally, On a whole Khaidi No 150 is a perfect and amazing comeback from Mega star Chiranjeevi. There are few lags in the film but are surely covered with the strong subject. Considering a good story and screenplay Khaidi is going to create some good wonders at the box office. It all depends on how family audience are going to get connected with it. Go with your family and friends this weekend.
RGV's Vangaveeti Review - Don't you know about Vijayawada Rowdyism? Watch This movie - 23-12-2016
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Ram Gopal Varma is looking for a hit from almost one decade where he totally lost the plot of a hit movie after his Raktha Charitra decade back. The director who has immense talent in him did not pick out any kind of positiveness in his movies these days. After declaring out Vangaveeti is the last film of his Ram Gopal Varma got released out the new movie of his and he said he will be resting in Mumbai to handle the Bollywood often.

Ramu got a big function too for giving out farewell. Lets see how his last movie in Telugu cinema field worked out.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Sandeep Kumar, Vamsee Chaganti, Sandeep Kumar, Kautilya and others
Director: am Gopal Varma
Music Director: Ravi Shankar
Producer: Dasari Kiran kumar

NARRATION:
Vangaveeti is the story of war between a Rowdy - Vangaveeti Ranga + His brother Radha against the government and few people in Vijayawada. Radha was killed brutally which turns Ranga to be the big name in Vijayavada city to take the revenge for his brother's huge murder.

Now Ranga turns bigger target after reaching his revenge and then the story passes on how Ranga took over the land of Vijayawada and he normed out all the things in the bigger city.

Later on movie comes to an end where Ranga was killed on the roads of Besant near Raghavayya park decades back.

SAFE SIGNS:
Sandep Kumar as Vangaveeti Ranga and Radha did his best part while Vamsi as Chalasani Venkata Ratnam was too good.

Happy days Vamsi Chaganti seen as Devineni Murali comeback with great mark with this movie for sure. Others who played Devineni Murali and Devineni Gandhi roles were perfectly set.

Ram Gopal Varma focused a lot on the personal back ground of Ranga, Radha and the whole Vangaveeti family. Ramu seriously gone too near to the personal issues of Ranga.

The way he focused his rivalry with Nehru in Vijayawada is too good and the caste politics too were highlighted on greater stand. Vangaveeti title song taking is biggest highlight of this film.

Ramu focused a lot on the story than touching other things. Character elevation of Radha is posted too good.

Interval bang and Gandhi murder stood as perfect peak.

HAZARD SIGNS:
Over violence is biggest minus mark and few scenes are utterly bored. Very slow and predictable screen play. Those who know the story of Vijayawada rowdyism will feel nothing new in this. The routine way of RGV mark scenes were too annoying. Climax is purely weak and should have been focused more better. Clarity is missing on the story at times.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Ravi Shankar's Music and BGM are perfect.

RGV's screenplay was not that great as expected.

APNC VERDICT:
Ram Gopal Varma mark is not totally missing but not to the great standard. Those who doesn't know Vijayawada Rowdyism will enjoy it or sure. This is a good movie and a sure one time watch of you love Ramu's films. But if you compare to the films of Raktha charitra it doesn't work out really great. Ramu has given a decent farewell bye bye to Telugu cinema with Vangaveeti. Considering the zero competition on the ground this movie might work a greater vein for sure.
Ram Charan's Dhruva Review - Best output from Thani Oruvan in Suri's style - 09-12-2016
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
Mega power star Ram Charan has faced lot of loss revenues as well criticism with the kind of disaster results Govindudu Andarivadele and the movie Bruce Lee gave up to him. The hero has got Thani Oruvan from Tamil and tried his best to remake it. He gave up the directorial responsibilities to Surender Reddy and production things to his uncle Allu Aravind. Now Dhruva has been into theatres and lets see what is happening.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Ram Chara, Rakul Preet Singh, Arvind Swamy and others
Director: Surender Reddy
Music Director: Vijay Antony
Producer: Allu Arvind

NARRATION:
Dhruva is a IPS officer who always believes in someone is probing us to take in such kind of things in the film. Right from the drinking powder to treatment in a particular hospital Dhruva trusts that some business mind is leading all of us. Also he states that the politicians and net has are working under a single business mind and he founds him as none other than Siddharth Abhimanyu.

Siddharth Abhimanyu is the biggest doctor/scientist in the town with great honors to him. Dhruva targets Siddarth from the right point and keeps his ultimate focus on him alone. Dhruva takes help of his friends Navadeep and others to keep out the negatives in Siddarth. The game between Siddarth and Dhruva reaches a peak point at the climax and there comes to see who won it in the last game.

SAFE SIGNS:
Ram Charan did well for this movie and he gripped altogether a positive note for this film. His performance was matured and his body is an additional asset.

The second hero aka villain Arvind Swamy just nailed his character and everyone would love the way he dealt with the character of his.

Rakul Preet Singh did best in her Pareshanura song.

Also Read - Ram Charan has super line up after Dhruva with Koratala and Mani Ratnam?


HAZARD SIGNS:
Dhruva has main negative in the slowish first half and comparatively second half is very race. Unlike Thani Oruvan director Suri was unable to adapt the nativity into Telugu script  totally powerful though. The chemistry between Ram Charan and Rakul Preet Singh is totally missing.

Songs placement is also average.

The comedy is totally missing out in the film.



ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Director Surender Reddy positively adapted the film in greater grand. He managed the Tamil script into Telugu with good powerful script.

BGM by Hiphop Tamizha is bigger highlight. Songs are good on screen too.

Screenplay of Dhruva is good and engaging.

Cinematography is Good.

APNC VERDICT:
On the Whole Dhruva cinema has all aspects that Thani Oruvan has but the comparison of both would give Thani Oruvan the sure first place. Scenes between Ram Charan and Aravind Swami, Rakul Preet glamour, Songs on screen, Ram Charan's dances and body, Suri's screenplay are the things to watch. This movie is best for Ram Charan after Magadheera on performance wise but on revenue side we have to wait for it.
Bethaludu Review - No where near to Bichagadu - 01-12-2016
REASONS FOR PROPAGANDA:
It was so easy for Vijay Anthony to sell out the Saithan/ Bethaludu film showing off the success that Bichagadu movie has attained on large scale. Bichagadu was a big sensation in Telugu cinema it minted more than 30 crores and ran after 100+ days where star heros in Telugu are unable to do the same. TRP ratings of this movie has even beat out Pawan Kalyan's and Mahesh Babu films. Considering all this Vijay Anthony posed a lot for this new film and Saithan is finally out today.

CAST AND CREW OF THE MOVIE:
Lead Cast: Vijay Antony, Alisha Abdullah, Arunthathi Nair and others
Director: Prathi Krishnamurthy
Music Director: Vijay Antony
Producer : Fathima Vijay Antony

NARRATION:
Dinesh - Hero is an IT professional working in Hyderabad. He marries Arunthathi Nair - Aiswarya who was his acquaintance through a matrimonial website. The post marriage session of his is so poor and worst.

He clearly starts listening to his inner voice where the name Bethala character lives in him and it asks him to go for a suicide. His friend saves the hero from the suicidal incidents as well. He meets psychologists along with his boss and gets to know about his past life. He comes to known about Jayalakshmi, Sharma and his son. Movie goes on to find out who is the main culprit behind all this.

SAFE SIGNS:
Vijay Antony as Dinesh worked too good for his role also as Sharma in the flash back his character absolutely went terrific. Hero  SAFE SIGNS: gets a lot for his variant roles and his best part to treat for. He always gains good marks as hero.

Heroines was good in her character.

HAZARD SIGNS:
The biggest negative for this movie is its slow pace turn. The movie totally goes on very slow pace which tests the patience of the movie lover. Bichagadu is the movie though was slow at times it gives some amazing feel when we are out the theatre but Saithan/Bethaludu gives drag feel a lot.

Last 15 minute are  so much lag and big minus for the film. Logic less scenes and reason less dialogues irritate you at times. Lucy movie of 2014 might gave some inspiration for the director but it did not go well at all.

ADDITIONAL PHASE:
Director Prathi Krishnamurthy would have taken good twists and turns for the film.

Screenplay of Bethaludu is good and engaging.

Dialogues went well too.

Cinematography is decent.

Songs by Vijay Antony are good. Back ground score and Vijay's performance are said to be highlights for this movie.

APNC VERDICT:
Finally, Bichagadu saga did not continue for Vijay Anthony with his lame script with over hype and poor pace of the film. There are not many bitnailing moments but one would wait for the movie to end. The film is said to be based on novel written by Sujatha ranganathan but it did not go properly adopted to the film. Climax is the biggest main point for the film and very good horror lovers can watch it for once.
