Cinematography minister Anam Ram Narayan Reddy felicitated

t has been the tradition of Telugu film industry to felicitate the minister of Cinematography. Industry felicitated M Satyanarayana Rao earlier. Now it is the turn of Anam Ram Narayan Reddy. This function is attended by Dasari, Maganti Babu, K Raghavendra Rao, D Rama Naidu, G Adiseshagiri Rao, Ramesh prasad, MS Reddy, DVS Raju, Venkatesh, Nagababu, C Kalyan, KS Rama Rao, Ashok Kumar, Tammareddy Bharadwaja, R Narayana Murthy etc. R Narayana Murthy said, “I would like to suggest a three point formula. First one is to abolish rental systems in cinema halls. Second one is to abolish tax on small films and the third one is restricting big films our increasing ticket price for the first two months.”

Speaking on the occasion dasari said, “Telugu film industry enjoys the best tax exemptions compared to the other states. Janardhan Reddy and Vijaya Bhaskara Reddy worked a lot towards to the welfare of Telugu film industry. YS Rajasekhara Reddy has been granting whatever we asked for. Slab system was abolished and a separate court was set up to piracy. Government is willing to help. But are we using the help in a constructive way? The plight of small film producers is very bad. The number of dubbing films are more than the number of straight films. Our state is so bad that we are buying a dubbing film for 15 crores. I will request the CM to reduce tax on small films.” Responding to it, Anam Ram Narayan Reddy said, “I never give important to felicitations. YS Rajasekhar Reddy gave us instructions that we should stay away from felicitations and do our duty diligently. It is been just three months since I became minister of cinematography. I have been learning more about the problems in film industry. Telugu film industry got separate identity after shifting from Chennai to Hyderabad. Congress government had always been the frontrunner in helping film industry. Government implemented a separate piracy law. Government is losing revenue to the tune of 1000 crores an year by abolishing slab system. I will try my best to make sure that Telugu film industry receives all possible support from the government.” The industry also gave a memento to another minister Maganti Babu.

Yamadonga with 13 prints in 25 centers in USA

Press Release :

Yamadonga USA Release on Aug 15th with 13 Prints 25 Theaters and More than 151 shows

It is our pleasure to announce that YAMADONGA movie is releasing in USA on Aug 15th with highest number of prints for Jr NTR movie till date.
Yamadonga is releasing in USA with 13 prints 25 theaters and more than 151 shows for the first week.

Yamadonga is a socio-fantasy entertainer that is going prestigious for various aspects. Yamadonga comes from the combination that delivered super hits like Student No.1 and Simhadri. SS Ramamouli directed the film and MM Keeravani scored music. Mohan Babu played the role of Lord Yama.


Hit Edii......Andariki?

What's common between Chiranjeevi, Nandamuri Balakrishna, Pawan Kalyan, NTR and Prabhas? Well, they are big stars and have huge fan following. Apart from that they have one common feature among them - they need 'one big hit' badly.

Except for Allu Arjun and Venktesh, almost all the heroes in MAA (Movie Artistes Association) including Uday Kiran, Tarun, Kalyan Ram, Tarakratna also need 'one hit'.

'Bhari' Vijayamedi?

When the last time was that Chiranjeevi or NBK delivered blockbuster? Tagore was Chiru's last big hit. Since Narasinha Naidu, none of NBK films became a blockbuster. Though Chiru and NBK got Shankardada MBBS and Lakshmi Narasinha respectively, they are moderate winners but not super hits that make their fans smiling. For NBK, Okka Magadu is the hope. All his recent films were disasters.

Chiranjeevi's latest release, Shankardada Zindabad, also failed to boost the morale.


Same goes with Pawan Kalyan and NTR. Pawan and NTR have been trying hard to get one blockbuster to change their luck for a long time. NTR himself admitted at the audio release function of Yamdonga. "After Simhadri, none of my films made my fans happy. Raakhi was appreciated. I am confident that with Yamadonga, I end my flops galore," he openly said.

After, Simhadri NTR's Allari Ramudu (average) Andhrawala, Sambha (average film), Narasinhudu, Ashok and Raakhi came and gone without giving him a respite.

Fans and industry members and everyone expect that Yamadonga brings him that much-needed success and puts the break to the flops. We wish him all the best.

Khushi Eppudu?

So is the case with Pawan Kalyan. After the phenomenal success of Khushi, success has been eluding him. Johnny was biggest disaster in his career. From then, his flops continued with Gudumbha Shankar, Balu, Bangaram and Annavaram. Of them, Annavaram is the only film that was an average to above grocer. Though all his flopped movies got excellent openings and fetched revenues, he didn't get that 'blockbuster'.

Now, he is working hard to do that ' 'Khushi' magic with his current film which is in the able hands of star writer-director Trivikram Srinivas. Trivikram brand of humor suits the Pawan's image, so everyone is hoping this would be a big hit. We wish both Pawan and Trivikram a good luck.

Success 'Varsham' karuvu

Young hero Prabhas travels on the same boat. After the massive hit, Chatrapathi, it has been dry spell for him. Pournami and Munna brought him down his 'rating'. That is why he has decided not to be hurry and do more films. Instead he is pinning all his hopes on Puri Jagannadh's next in which he has his lucky heroine Trisha and Bangalore model Sanjana.

Man'mohan'am kadu

Mohan Babu is still playing lead roles though he has accepted guest role in Yamadonga. After this, he is gearing up for another film as hero. But he has more flops to his kitty than other big heroes. If he wants to continue as hero, he immediately needs a success.

'Mass'ive hit ravali

Though Nag career doesn’t look bad, he too needs one big hit. Sri Ramadasu was good hit for him but his fans are low after the colossal flop of Boss. Fans are expecting another 'Mass'ive hit from Lawrence directed Don.

'Lakshmi' Varinchena!

Uday Kiran who is almost touched nadir with many flops is hoping to bounce back with Viyyalavari Kayyalu. He also hopes on Lakshmiputrudu. He was once most 'shining' star in tinsel town.


Tarun is another hero who desperately needs 'one success' just to be in the line. There is no smile on his lips with unabated flops. It Oh, my god, he has given so many flops that outweighed his earlier hits. We hope to see smile on his face again.

Chandamama ..Rave..Success Teve..

Navadeep is perhaps only hero in Telugu who has got so many offers as leading hero despite the fact that no film of his till date has been successful. From his maiden film, Jai, to the recent Poramboku, all his seven Telugu films bombed. His fortunes might change with Krishnavamsi's Chandamama. Hope for the better.


Nitin's first film was Jayam. It ran for 200 days. After that he did deliver some hits. But he soon drifted into flops galore. Film after the film went downhill and some of them ran into financial problems. For few months he went hiding. Now he is back with bang and signed three films. Will these three movies change his fortunes?

'Kalyana' Dasami?

Kalyan Ram gave two flops after Atanokkade. Will Vijaydasami bring him luck?

Q lo unnaru..

Manchu Manoj, Venu, Aryan Rajesh, Tarakratna (7 films, not a single hit) , Shivabalaji, etc are also in the queue to get right break. We hope by 2007, all the 'Maa'na heroes will get the success.

As one character in Krishnavamsi's Khadgam, says, "Okka Chance Ivvandi.." our heroes need one chance to bounce back. To smile again.

Yes, Okka Hit Kavaali!


Chiranjeevi on 3 week vacation

Chiranjeevi is leaving to London tonight on vacation. He would be away for the next three weeks. He would not be in India for his birthday and the audio of launch of his son Ram Charan Teja’s debut film Chiruta. The audio launch of Chiruta is going to be held in a low key. Chiranjeevi will be returning from London in the first week of September.


Mamata Mohandas dubs her voice

In the times when we have Telugu girls not able to dub their own voices, a non-Telugu heroine dubbed her voice in Telugu. Mamata Mohandas who became extremely popular as a singer with three songs (Rakhi, 36-24-36 and Aaakaleste) had dubbed her voice for her straight Telugu debut ‘Yamadonga’. Meera Jasmine earlier dubbed her voice in ‘Gudumba Shankar’ in the past.
