In what seems to be another feather in the cap of one of India’s finest actors, Kamal Haasan will now join forces with none other than Walt Disney Productions, who are slated to produce his forthcoming film Marma Yogi (Mysterious Saint). According to the buzz, this big-budget spectacle will be co-produced by Bharath Bala, who was responsible for Vande Mataram, the first patriotic music video by A. R. Rahman which made waves several years ago. The new collaboration will see Kamal Haasan and A. R. Rahman coming together after a long gap.
According to sources, Walt Disney Productions, which recently tied up with Yash Raj Films for a full-length animated feature called Roadside Romeo, wanted to expand its operations across the country. And this is why Marma Yogi was chosen.
The film, which is said to be directed by Kamal Haasan will be his fourth directorial venture. It is a period drama, set in the seventh century, which will also feature him in the lead role. Hema Malini, who worked with Kamal in Hey Ram and Asin who is cast opposite him in Dasavadharam have been roped in to play key roles. There is yet another heroine in the film. Co-incidentally, Marma Yogi is the title of one of MGR’s legendary blockbusters, which is known to be the first Tamil film to receive an ‘A’ certificate at the time of its release in 1951.
This is the second time that Kamal has adopted the title of an MGR film (after Sathi Leelavathi of 1936). The new film, which is touted to be the most expensive film ever made in the country, has an astronomical budget of approximately Rs 120 crore. The movie seems all set to compete against Rajnikanth’s recently announced film, Robot in the race to become India’s most expensive film to date. Kamal will shortly go to the US to discuss the production of this film, which is slated to be shot in Thailand. Kamal plans to start shooting for this film in February.

"Bhayya"Movie review (*ing Vishal, Priyamani,) October 5, 2007Posted by RaJinikanth in priyamani, Telugu Movies, vishal.
add a comment
Punchline: story of Jagan from Pulivendula
Type: Dubbed (Tamil)
Banner: GK Corporation
Cast: Vishal, Priyamani, Ajay, Asish Vidyardhi, Devraj, Urvasi, Nirosha, Ponnambalam etc.
Music: Mani Sharma
Action: Kanal Kannan
Story – screenplay – direction: Bhupati Pandyan
Producer: Vikram Krishna
Release date: 5 October 2007
Jagan (Vishal) is a hot-blooded youngster who often resorts to arm-twisting methods with others. He falls in love with Malathi (Priyamani). She tries to avoid him by claiming that a goon (Guna) is her lover. And then Guna starts following her and harassing her. The rest of the story of all about how Jagan takes care of Malathi and the goons in the city.
Vishal: Vishal is very good in the lead role. In addition to his mass characterization, there is a bit of comedy orientation for which he has done complete justice. He is pretty good at fights department. However, he needs to become more fluent with Telugu while rendering his voice.
Others: Priyamani is adequate. She did the role of a girl harassed who is rescued by the hero. Asish Vidyardhi steals the show with his positive character with comic outlook. Ajay did a terrific performance as the bad guy, but his role becomes dummy in the second half. Devraj is alright as the villain. Ponnabalam is humorous as Kukkala Bhaskar. Jaya Prakash Reddy’s dubbing helped his character getting noticed.
Story – screenplay – direction: Story of the film is routine. But the director Bhupati Pandyan seems to be an expert at inserting commercial elements. Though most of the commercial gimmicks were played in earlier films, he used them again to get good response from the masses. I particularly liked the way he inserted a flashback for Asish Vidyardhi and Urvasi in an Eastman color and 35 mm format. That episode is very much resembles the creativity of Woody Allen. The way he shows flight to denote villain going out of and coming into the city is good. Screenplay of the film is adequate.
Other departments: Music by Mani Sharma is mediocre. Cinematography is fair. They used special camera to shoot action sequences. Dialogues are alright. Production values are good.
Analysis: First half of the film is adequate. The second half has got lot of action sequences and violence. The plus points of the film are entertainment (aimed at masses) and action sequences. On the flipside, there is lot of violence in the film and Tamil nativity could be a problem too. This film is definitely not for the class audiences. But has the potential to do well with the masses.
"Happy Days" movie review September 28, 2007Posted by RaJinikanth in happy days, Telugu Movies, Telugu Movies mp3s.

Cast: Sandesh, Nikhil, Vamsi Krishna, Raahul, Tamanna, Gayatri Rao, Sonia, Monali Chowdary and Kamalinee Mukherjee (in a guest role)
Camera: Vijay C Kumar
happydays Chandu (Sandesh), Rajesh (Nikhil), Shankar (Vamsi Krishna), Tyson (Raahul), Madhu (Tamanna), Appu (Gayatri Rao) and Sangeeta (Monali Chowdary) are a bunch of freshers in a college. They all together make a fine gang. Chandu – Madhu, Rajesh – Appu Shankar – Sangeeta soon build up their relation and become pairs. Tyson – a nerd with a heart of gold – ends up falling in love with a senior Sravanthi (Sonia). The rest of the story is how they spend their four years of their education in the campus and express love for their respective dear ones.
happy daysMain male leads: This film boasts of perfect casting. You see characters, not the actors. All the new comers performed in an extremely natural way. And by the time movie ends, we end up understanding the characteristics and traits of each and every one. As per the footage and likeability of the character is concerned Varun Sandesh takes the top ranking. He is extremely lovable and his striking resemblance to hero Siddhardh is an added advantage. He understood the character very well. The next is Raahul. Lots of credit should be given to Sekhar Kammula for penning such a beautiful character and Raahul suited it to the tee. Nikhil is pretty good as the tapori. He got considerable importance towards the latter half of the second half. Vamsi Krishna is a pretty good actor, but did not get enough scope to perform. The two guys who had donned the role of seniors are good.
happydaysMain female leads: Tamanna is the main heroine of the film. She is very good and she oozed natural expressions in all her scenes. Gayatri Rao is also very natural and likable. However, it is Sonia who steals the show with her extremely natural and at times subtle expressions. Monali Chowdary is good as the bad girl. Kamalinee Mukherjee did the role of an extremely glamorous lecturer and she dubbed her own voice. She is cool.
happy daysStory – screenplay – direction: There is not much of a story in this film. It is about the love of four couples spread over four years. What makes the big difference to this simple and plain story is director’s ability to create interest throughout the film with neat screenplay. He brought out tremendous emotion in the scenes of separation and reunion between the pairs.
The following scenes standout:
1. The separation scene of Tyson and Sravanthi is very fascinating.
2. Rajesh’s reaction after he beats up his friend Shankar.
3. The way he ended the love thread between Tyson and Sravanthi. If Sravanthi accepted Tyson’s love, then it would appear that the director is giving messages that it is ok to love your senior girls in the college.
The following dialogues are so meaningful and true:
1. Love and fear can never coexist.
2. A boy’s character is judged by the kind of girls he roams with.
3. The college life may fail you to achieve great academic rewards, but it will definitely give you the ability to achieve any thing.
4. College Days are Happy Days. The days that follow college days are purposeful days.
However the following aspects of the film are unwarranted:
1. Rajesh’s hair style in the beginning appears artificial. And he keeps using Telangana dialect though he is from Proddutur (Rayalaseema).
2. Tyson doing some scientific tricks. The extent of the tricks should have been limited.
3. The character of Panduranga Rao was introduced well. But there is no ending to that character.
I could not resist from bringing the comparison of the ego clash between lead pair in this film to that of Kushi film. In that film Bhumika Chawla had a clash with Pawan because he peaked at her midriff. In this film the ego clash comes out because the guy wants to kiss the girl.
happydaysOther departments: Music of the film is excellent and the two songs in the first half (music + visuals) take you to the different level. Micky J Meyer is just superb. Other department that dominates the movie is great cinematography. Visuals are a feast to the eyes. Vijay C Kumar who followed single color pattern for Anand and Godavari came up with different color sceheme for this film so that the visuals match the vibrancy of college atmosphere. Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh deserves special mention. He made sure the scenes flow in the film is smooth.
First half of the film is neat though some of us might feel that Sekhar Kammula kind of emotional scenes are not there. But in the second half of the film, he added good emotional episodes and made sure that you get connected with the film. The plus points of the film are direction, fresh cast, music, cinematography and editing. On the flip side, the pace of the film slackens at times. Sekhar Kammula who did female oriented films like Anand and Godavari came up with a film of different genre this time. The genre might be changed, but his honesty and filmmaking abilities are in tact. If he sticks to his sensibilities, Sekhar Kammula can never make a bad film. Go and watch ‘Happy Days’

Vanaja" — a Telugu Art Film in New York September 1, 2007Posted by RaJinikanth in Telugu Movies.
1 comment so far
After running at myriad film festivals all over the world, the Telugu film Vanaja is opening as a commercial release in New York this weekend; it will be opening more broadly around the U.S. in the next month.
Vanaja an art film, which is to say, the director, Rajnesh Domalpalli, doesn’t come out of the “Tollywood” world of commercial Telugu cinema (he actually has an M.F.A. from Columbia, and the script for this film was submitted as his Master’s Thesis). Domalpalli’s primary actors are nearly all amateurs — people he found on the street. Carnatic music and Kuchipudi dance play important, but not overwhelming, roles in the film, and even there, it appears the characters actually spent months training in these rigorous arts.
This is a film about caste and class relations in a village setting, but Domalpalli doesn’t take the familiar route seen in many other films about village life (i.e., villagers are exploited, landowners are inherently evil). Here, the rich people, though they do not always behave sympathetically, are as human and complex as Vanaja herself. I don’t want to get too bogged down in plot, but suffice it to say that the romance in the film follows a surprising course.
Throughout, Domalpalli pays very close attention to details, including sets and staging, and the result is a film that feels very natural, yet is full of visual pleasures. The colors are rich, though not unrealistically so, and the acting is much better than one would expect from an all-amateur cast and a novice director.
I’m very curious to know how this film might be received in India, in particular in Andhra Pradesh.
Nitin’s Lifting Problems With Sada! August 31, 2007Posted by RaJinikanth in nitin, sada, Telugu Movies.
add a comment
The Jayam couple is once again paired together in Amma Rajashekar’s forthcoming film ‘Takkari’. In the movie Sada plays a city girl who suffers from split personality syndrome. Nitin plays the man in love with her.
While shooting for a romantic song together, Nitin and Sada enjoyed each other’s company so much that their chemistry was apparent before the camera.
During a shot, Nitin acted on impulse and lifted Sada in his arms. Though the shot looked romantic, Nitin ended up with a sprained back.
But Nitin is not complaining. He says even if he has to lift Sada hundred times and sprain his back doing so, he would do it.
Yes Nitin, it is true. We too agree with you.
The shooting of ‘Takkari’ is going in brisk phase. The film is set to release in October

K Raghavendra Rao launched the logo of Nagarjuna’s latest film Don. This event took place at Taj Deccan on the evening of 29 August (Nagarjuna’s birthday) in Hyderabad. This function is graced by Amala, Lawrence, Abburi Ravi, ML Kumar Chowdary, B Gopal, Gunnam Gangaraju, KS Rama Rao and Chanti Addala.
Don film will have double entertainment – Lawrence
Speaking on the occasion director Lawrence said, “It was Nagarjuna who gave me life as film director with Mass. Don film will have double entertainment quotient compared to Mass. The action sequences and presentation is done in ever before style with a new pattern. I am also composing music for this film. I made him listen to two of my compositions first. He asked me who composed the songs and when I said it was me, he assigned me the job of music director too.”
I am doing the role of modern Robin Hood – Nagarjuna
Hero Nagarjuna said, “I am doing the role of modern robin hood in this film. I belong to the mafia who does help needy people. The fights in this film are going to be stylish. Lawrence used different camera movements and variety editing cuts to shoot this film. Fights in this film would be praised after the film’s release. Lawrence has improved tremendously as director from Mass to Don. Lawrence is also doing a role in this film. I observed Lawrence’s passion for composing music when we went to Swiss for a film to shoot songs. He used to sit in back of the bus and hum songs (his own compositions). Being a choreographer, he has great taste for good music and he is composing good music for the film. We wanted to release the film in the next month. But Lawrence wanted more time in order to prepare wonderful screenplay. Hence we shifted the release date to December 2007.”
