Chandramukhi - Celebrate the completion of 804 day Gallery

TamilaNadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Monday heaped praise on actor Rajinikanth for his simplicity and hard work.

Even as Tamil Superstar latest sensation ‘Sivaji-The Boss’ was en route to creating box office history, his other film ‘Chandramukhi’ quietly completed a record 804-run breaking the record held by the 1944 classic Haridoss.

Speaking at a function organised at Kamaraj Arangam to mark the record run of the actor’s movie Chandramukhi (804th day), Mr. Karunanidhi said Rajinikanth was humble in spite of his success. This quality, the Chief Minister added, was the reason for the actor continuing to be successful. Mr. Karunanidhi pointed out how Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, during his address at the Japanese parliament, had referred to the popularity of Rajinikanth. “This gives me utmost happiness,” the Chief Minister said.

The Sivaji Productions movie, directed by P. Vasu, is still showing at a theatre. Actors Kamal Hassan and Prabhu, Rajathi Ammal, Sivaji Ganesan’s wife Kamala, family members of Rajinikanth and actor Sridevi were among those present at the function.

Some of scenes which were not accommodated in Chandramukhi will be screened at the venue besides the hit song Ra Ra will be premiered in Tamil at the venue.
The movie set a new record in Tamil film history surpassing M K Thyaraja Bhagavadhar’s Haridas (1944). The latter has run continuously for over 700 days. But Chandramukhi is still going strong after 800 days.

Director Jeeva dead

Well-known cinematographer and director Jeeva (43) died in Moscow today following cardiac arrest, family sources said.

Jeeva was shooting for a Tamil film ‘Dhaam Dhoom’ starring ‘Jeyam’ Ravi and Kangana Raut in the Russian capital.

He passed away at 3 am, the sources said.

Jeeva started off as a camera assistant and turned cinematographer later. He worked with Tamil film director Shankar in blockbusters like ‘Gentleman,’ ‘Kadhalan’ and ‘Indian.’ He has also worked in Bollywood films–’Hul Chul,’ ‘Bhaagban,’ and ‘Hera Pheri’. Jeeva turned director with ‘12B’ and ‘Ullam Ketkume’, which got rave reviews while his recent release ‘Unnale Unnale’ was a hit.


His body is expected to be flown back to India tonight. Sources say stress could have been a major factor for his demise. The director had been to Russia earlier to shoot for the film and reportedly encountered troubles from the local ‘mafia’ in Russia, which had demanded money from him to shoot there. He had packed his bags then and returned to India. But he was very keen to shoot the film there, and hence made it to Russia again. Jeeva is survived by his fashion designer wife Aneez and two daughters.

His death has come as a rude shock to the film industry, which had seen as some kind of avant garde technician.

Jeeva was one of the well-known technicians of Tamil cinema, comfortable as he was with the new idioms of film-making. Jeeva was able to mix art and state of the art (in that he was comfortable with technology). His movies (the ones for which he was the cameraman) like Vaali, Kadhalan, Gentleman, Indian, Kushi, Sachien, Run all combined style and substance. He had started as an assistant to cameraman P C Sriram and has so far worked in around 40 films.

Born into a family of staunch Communists in Thiruthooraipoondi, he was christened as Jeeva after the popular Communist leader Jeevanandam.

But films caught his fancy early, and it remained his abiding attraction till fate snatched him away in the most unceremonious manner.

Jeeva has also directed over 50 commercials. He ventured to Bollywood and handled cinematography for several blockbusters, mainly to those directed by Priyadharshan. Some of his Hindi movies include Hulchul, Yeh Tera Ghar Yeh Mera Ghar, Run, Kushi, Bhagam Bhag, Hera Pheri among others.

Jeeva ventured to direction with 12B. He followed that with Ullam Ketkumae and his last directorial release was Unnale Unnale. Jeeva, at the time of his untimely death, was directing Dham Dhoom.

Giving the details to the press, Dr Rajasekhar says, 'Producer Basheed is planning to produce a film with me for the past some time. It took a shape now and Jeevita would direct that movie. The basic story of the film is how a group of police made efforts to nab a group of criminals.' With the success of 'Yevadaithe Nakenti', I myself provided a good script for this film as I am inspired with that hit film. I am quite confident that this film would also be a big hit.'
Producer Basheed says, 'We produced 'Allare Allari' as our debut film on our banner. We are going to release the film very soon. The regular shooting of 'Satyameva Jayate' would begin in June.
Director Jeevita says, 'We have got a new lease of life with the success of 'Yevadaithe Nakenti'. The audiences could find Dr Rajasekhar in a powerful police officer role in 'Satyameva Jayate' on the lines of 'Ankusham', his previous hit film.'

Srikanth (Known well as Sriram in Telugu) Vandana Secretly Married?, Photos - More

The Srikanth-Vandana romance is full of so many mysteries and betrayals that it will become a special article in itself.
Alleging that there were many cases of fraud against Srikanth’s fiancée Vandana, his family broke his engagement to Vandana. So Vandana gate crashed into his house saying she was already married to Srikanth and she would live with no one else but him.
Srikanth’s parents filed a police complaint that Vandana had entered their house without permission. In retaliation, Vandana released a photo album showing her marriage to Srikanth. She also told the media that she and Srikanth had been in love and had a registered marriage.
Vandana is actress Trisha’s friend. In 2005, she celebrated her birthday on May 9 at a 5 star hotel. Srikanth was with Trisha at this party. That was his first meeting with Vandana. They met after that and fell in love. Srikanth is a Tamil Brahmin and Vandana is a Telugu Reddy. Saying that his parents would not consent, Srikanth tied the knot with Vandana on Feb 7 at Venugopalaswamy temple in Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh. This wedding was arranged by a distant relative Geetha without the knowledge of Srikanth’s parents. The marriage was conducted by guruji Kedar Eshwar Rao. Witnesses were Vandana’s parents and the marriage was registered formally at Kakinada. .
Vandana has the marriage certificate as proof. On coming to know of the marriage, Srikanth’s parents wanted to hold a formal wedding function as if the marriage was something new. Before that could happen, the cases of fraud against Vandana’s family came to light and caused confusion.
Vandana says she has been living with Srikanth as man and wife. She accused that Getha who helped arrange the marriage was demanding 10 lakhs as dowry and was trying to sabotage their marriage.
Vandana’s parents have produced the marriage certificate to the police and asked them to re-unite Srikanth and Vandana.
What does new bridegroom Srikanth have to say? He does not refute his marriage to Vandana but says he was not a husband in the true sense. (Does he expect us to believe that?) But he’s wailing that Vandana is a fraud whose family was trying to get his family into problems and that his life was in danger.
He wants a formal divorce. It is 4 months since they got married and divorce can be filed after 6 months. Vandana’s parents accuse that’s the reason Srikanth and his parents were dragging on over the formal wedding arrangements. That’s the reason Vandana just moved into Srikanth’s house.

Trisha who was in news sometime ago for allegedly drinking and creating nuisance in public has done it again and this time at a star hotel.

Trisha who was in news sometime ago for allegedly drinking and creating nuisance in public has done it again and this time at a star hotel.
The actress reportedly attended a party at a star hotel near Adayar recently and had a fair share of a unique variety of white wine.
When she and her friends finally finished the party and decided to return home it was past midnight and the actress bumped into a fat lady just entering the restaurant.
Eyewitnesses say Trisha apologized, but to everyone’s surprise the fat lady slapped her and used abusive language. As a crowd gathered, Trisha’s friends quietly escorted her from the place.
When Trisha returned to the hotel for another visit the hotel administration reportedly apologized to the actress for the rude behavior of the lady. However, they had asked her to leave citing security reasons.
An adamant Trisha had questioned the hotel staff about the lady who had dared to slap her. The actress left quietly after knowing the identity of the lady.
As it happens the lady was none other than the wife of a police officer who had caught Trisha on a couple of her earlier drinking spree and warned her against creating public nuisance. No wonder! Source:tamilfilmratings
