    Kalki 2898 AD Tickets: Online Ticketing Scams for 'Kalki'? Fans Outraged Over Theater Greed!
    Kalki 2898 AD Tickets: Online Ticketing Scams for 'Kalki'? Fans Outraged Over Theater Greed!
    The entire nation is eagerly anticipating the global release of 'Kalki 2898 AD', directed by Nag Ashwin and starring Prabhas, scheduled for this Thursday, June 27. Advance ticket sales have already begun and are selling rapidly. Following authorization to raise ticket prices in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, all theaters are now charging significantly more. Reports confirm that the demand for advance bookings is strong not only in the Telugu states but also in northern regions. However, the practices some theaters are adopting for ticket sales have sparked controversy, leading to widespread outrage among fans. Why are fans upset? It seems that some theaters are capitalizing on the high demand for the 'Kalki' movie to maximize profits. Although tickets are shown as available online, users find themselves unable to complete their bookings, leading to suspicions. On 'BookMyShow', tickets are marked in green to signify availability, yet fans encounter a 'Sorry! Something is not right' message when attempting to purchase them. This has led to significant dissatisfaction among fans, who accuse theater owners of holding back tickets to sell them at inflated prices on the black market. Despite concerns over high ticket costs, some fans are still trying to make bookings, driven by their admiration for the lead actor. However, these manipulative practices by theater owners are causing frustration and could potentially deter future theater visits. In the 1000 Crore Club... Meanwhile, the 'Kalki' movie is receiving more responses than expected for advance bookings. Typically, advance bookings for a star hero's movie are more vigorous in Tier-1 cities. However, 'Kalki' is also seeing strong bookings in Tier-2 cities. Audiences from small towns and villages are equally keen to watch 'Kalki'. Given this backdrop, even a slight positive buzz on opening day could result in a downpour of collections at the box office. If that happens, 'Kalki' could easily cross the 1000 crore mark. What's the first-day target? Previously, 'Baahubali 2', a collaboration between Rajamouli and Prabhas, fetched over 200 crores on its first day. Rajamouli's next film 'RRR' also crossed the 200 crore gross mark. Since 'Baahubali 2', Prabhas has not touched this mark again. Last year's grand release 'Saalar' also failed to collect 200 crores on its first day. Hence, the first-day target for 'Kalki' is rumored to be over 200 crores. There is keen interest to see if Prabhas can achieve this feat independently without the Rajamouli brand. If Prabhas manages this, 'Kalki' could become the highest-grossing film of the year. Ticket Price Increase Telugu state governments have green signals for the hike in 'Kalki' ticket prices. Recently, the Telangana government authorized an increase, suggesting prices can be raised from June 27 to July 4 to 75 rupees in single screens and up to 100 rupees in multiplexes. The Andhra Pradesh government also gave good news to the 'Kalki' team, allowing increases up to 125 rupees in multiplexes and permitting additional shows. Each theater can now screen up to 5 shows, significantly boosting ticket prices across Telugu states. On average, watching a movie in a multiplex can cost up to 500 rupees per ticket (including taxes), while single screens charge between 200-300 rupees. Families are facing expenses in the thousands to watch a movie, leading to posts of dismay online. Each ticket costs up to 3000 rupees! The 'Kalki' movie is making a notable impact in the north as well. Bollywood audiences are keenly interested in watching this film starring Pan-India actor Prabhas. Theater groups, noticing this trend, are aiming to capitalize on it. In Mumbai, there are reports of advance booking tickets for 'Kalki' being sold at high prices; in multiplexes, each ticket is going for around 2000 rupees. Drive-in theaters are pricing tickets as high as 3000 rupees. In Delhi's multiplexes, ticket prices vary from 1300 to 2000 rupees, while in Bangalore, some multiplexes are charging between 1100 and 1500 rupees. In Hyderabad, tickets for benefit shows are reportedly being sold on the black market for up to 3000 rupees. Record shows for 'Kalki' in Hyderabad... In Hyderabad, the recently opened Aparna Multiplex announced that it would be showing a total of 47 screenings of the movie 'Kalki' on its first day. Additionally, they declared that all tickets for these shows had already been sold. They also released a special poster related to this event, which is now going viral online. Some posts are highlighting that this level of excitement is typical for a Prabhas movie. https://twitter.com/gopaladusumalli/status/1805502440420303323

    Miss Perfect Web Series Review: The Mega Daughter-in-Law's a Tale of Love and OCD hits on Disney+ Hotstar
    Miss Perfect Web Series Review: The Mega Daughter-in-Law's a Tale of Love and OCD hits on Disney+ Hotstar
    Cast: Lavanya Tripathi, Abhijeet, Keshav Deepak, Jhansi, Harshavardhan, Abhigna, Roshan, Satish Saripalli, Mahesh Vitta, and others Director: Vishwak Khanderao Cinematographer: Aditya Javvadi Music: Prashanth R. Vihari Streaming Languages: Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi, Bengali, Kannada, Marathi OTT Platform: Disney+ Hotstar Release Date: February 2, 2024 Lavanya Tripathi stars in the lead role of the latest web series "Miss Perfect," alongside "Life is Beautiful'' fame and "Bigg Boss 4" winner Abhijeet, who plays her romantic interest. The series also features Abhigna, Harshavardhan, Jhansi, Mahesh Vitta, Sunaina among the main cast. Directed by "Sky Lab'' fame Vishwak Khanderao, the series premiered on Disney+ Hotstar. But does it manage to impress OTT viewers? Let's find out now. Plot Lavanya Rao (Lavanya Tripathi) is a girl who could be the brand ambassador for cleanliness and hygiene due to her OCD. She always wants her surroundings to be clean. As part of a promotion, Lavanya moves to Hyderabad and rents a flat in the same apartment complex where Rohit (Abhijeet) lives. Jyothi (Abhigna), who cooks in their flats, ends up sending Lavanya to Rohit's flat for some reason. Mistaking her for a maid sent by Jyothi, Rohit gets confused, leading to a series of events. Why does Lavanya keep visiting Rohit's flat? Why does he develop a liking for her? Does he confess it to her or not? What happens in the end forms the crux of the story. Performances Lavanya Tripathi delivers a splendid performance as Miss Perfect. She fits perfectly into the role of someone who can't stand uncleanliness. Abhijeet, after a long hiatus, appears before the Telugu audience in a fresh look, captivating with his unique acting skills. The pairing of Abhijeet and Lavanya looks great on screen, with both actors justifying their roles well. Harshavardhan and Jhansi have limited roles. Mahesh Vitta and other actors performed well within the scope of their characters. Direction The OCD storyline is not new to Telugu viewers, reminiscent of the film "Mahanubhavudu." However, director Vishwak Khanderao's take on a woman with OCD is interesting. He has designed Lavanya's character well but failed to craft compelling scenes that match her character's complexity. He also missed the mark in leveraging her OCD for comedic effect. The direction falters in narrative pacing, comedy, and building curiosity about what's next, with emotional moments also failing to make an impact due to the writing failure. Technically Speaking On the technical front, credit goes to music director Prashanth R. Vihari for not taking the series lightly and composing some good melody songs. The background score is also commendable. Cinematography and production design are satisfactory, with high production values evident throughout the series.

    Keedaa Cola Review: A Rollicking Good Time Akin to Tharun Bhascker's Hits?
    Keedaa Cola Review: A Rollicking Good Time Akin to Tharun Bhascker's Hits?
    Cast: Chaitanya Mandadi, Rag Mayur, Brahmanandam, Tharun Bhascker, Jeevan Kumar, Vishnu, Ravindra Vijay, RaghuramDirector: Tharun BhasckerMusic: Vivek SagarCinematography: AJ AronProducers: K.Vivek, Saikrishna, Srinivas Kaushik, Sripad, Upendra VarmaSubmitted by: Rana DaggubatiRelease Date: November 3, 2023 Tharun Bhascker, a young director, has carved a niche for himself with youthful entertainers like "Peli Choopulu" and "Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi." Known for his clean comedy and poignant storytelling, Bhascker has endeared himself to a youthful audience. His latest directorial venture is  "Keedaa Cola,". Does it deliver the laughs? Does Bhascker score another hit? Let's delve into the review. The Storyline Vastu (Chaitanya Rao) and Varadaraju (Brahmanandam) are the quintessential grandson-grandfather duo, embroiled in a harebrained scheme to swindle the makers of Keedaa Cola. Their plan? To plant a cockroach in a soda bottle and extort a whopping ₹5 crores. On a parallel track, Jeevan nurses political aspirations, aiming for a seat as a corporator. His brother Naidu (Tharun Bhascker), an ex-convict, throws in his lot with him. With both factions in a frenzied chase for money, their paths are set on a collision course. What ensues is a tale of wit, will, and wile, viewable exclusively in theatres. Execution The film hits the ground running with a flurry of amusing scenes, swiftly setting the stage for fun. Tharun Bhascker's entrance as the quirky Naidu adds a new layer of excitement, his unique blend of meditation and daily English lessons lending a quirky twist to the narrative. The movie gains further traction with his eccentric stunts. As the plot thickens in the second half, the tempo cranks up. Getup Seenu, as KeedaaCola's unwitting brand ambassador, inadvertently provides a barrel of laughs, and the chaos that ensues between the Vastu Gang and Naidu Gang, with their standoffish 'surrender' antics, adds to the hilarity. Notable scenes include sharpshooters on a mission to eliminate Naidu and Naidu's comical romance with Barbie, which serve as comedic highlights. Brahmanandam's portrayal, though wheelchair-bound, sporadically steals the show with his timing, ensuring laughter is never far behind. Performances In the director's chair and in front of the camera, Tharun Bhascker delivers a standout performance. His portrayal of Naidu is a testament to his acting chops, with impeccable comedic timing that serves as a pillar of the film's charm. While Brahmanandam's screen time may be brief, his influence resonates throughout the film's entirety. Chaitanya Rao tackles the challenging role of a differently-abled youth with finesse, conveying a breadth of emotion without uttering a single word. The ensemble cast, featuring Rag Mayur, Jeevan, Vishnu, Raghu, Ravindra Vijay, and Getup Seenu, all contribute to the film's humor, proving that even minor roles can leave a lasting impression. Direction "Keedaa Cola" marks Tharun Bhascker's foray into the genre of crime comedy, a departure from his previous cinematic ventures. The Bhaskar signature is evident in the storytelling's rhythm and the script's witty construction. This time, he orchestrates a symphony of humor, utilizing visual cues, a dynamic soundtrack, and the expressive performances of his cast to evoke laughter. While Bhaskar's earlier works were steeped in realism, "Keedaa Cola" revels in the absurd, prioritizing humor over narrative plausibility. In doing so, Bhaskar successfully conjures a comedic experience that resonates with audiences, despite a story that takes delightful liberties with the expected and the imaginable. Technical Aspects Vivek Sagar's score is a highlight, complementing the film's technical proficiency. The production values are commendable, with Bhascker's sharp writing often shining through.

    Will Prabhas beat Aamir Khan's Dangal 2200 CR Record with Adipurush? 
    Will Prabhas beat Aamir Khan's Dangal 2200 CR Record with Adipurush? 
    The release of the trailer for Adipurush, a movie based on the theme of Ramayana, has created a frenzy across the country. Prabhas, a pan-India star, will be seen as Sri Ram and his fans have already predicted that this movie will break all records. We believe that if marketed properly and aggressively, it has the potential to surpass the collections of Dangal, which has grossed over Rs. 2200 crores. The key to achieving this feat lies in marketing the movie overseas. In this YouSay exclusive article, we will explore Adipurush's budget, investments, promotions, and release date to find out more. Adipurush Budget As per Bollywood circles, Adipurush, an ambitious film based on Ramayana, was initially estimated to have a budget of Rs. 550 crores. However, after the release of the teaser, the makers decided to re-edit the VFX effects, which ended up costing them an additional Rs. 150 crores. As a result, the total budget for Adipurush has now reached Rs. 700 crores, making it the most expensive film ever produced in India. This budget is even higher than that of other big-budget films such as Baahubali, RRR, and Pathan. No Risk for Investment The makers of Adipurush are confident that the enormous budget allocated to the film will be recouped through pre-release business and digital rights. While the story of Ramayana is familiar to the whole country, the interest in films based on the epic is still high. The success of Adipurush will depend on how well it is marketed and maintained. The film's team has not yet focused on promotions, which is essential to make the film accessible to everyone. As the release date approaches, it is crucial to ramp up promotional efforts to ensure the film's success. Bollywood sources are discussing whether Adipurush will break records, and the makers are hopeful that it will. Dangal vs. Adipurush Currently, Dangal, starring Aamir Khan, holds the title of India's highest-grossing film, amassing a staggering collection of over Rs. 2,200 crores. Adipurush, on the other hand, faces an uphill battle to surpass this record, particularly in light of Dangal's impressive performance in multiple countries, particularly China. However, Adipurush's story is based on the universally known epic of Ramayana, which is known worldwide, and if marketed effectively, it has the potential to generate a lot of interest and attract audiences worldwide. This could be a promising opportunity to further enhance the Indian Brand and culture globally.  The key to achieving this goal will be through a well-planned and strategic promotional campaign, which could help the film surpass Dangal's record and enter the exclusive Rs. 2200+  crore club. Release Date The much-awaited movie Adipurush, directed by Om Raut and starring Prabhas as Raghav, has finished filming and is all set to release on June 16 across five languages: Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, and Kannada. The film features Kriti Sanon as Sita, Saif Ali Khan as Ravana, Sunny Singh as Laxman, and Devdatta Nage as Hanuman. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishnakumar, Vamsi, Pramod, and Om Raut, Adipurush has created a buzz among fans who eagerly await its release and hope that it will surpass records and achieve the coveted Rs. 2200+ crore club.

    Ambajipeta Marriage Band movie Review: A Fresh Concept in Suhas' Film.. A Hat-trick Achievement?
    Ambajipeta Marriage Band movie Review: A Fresh Concept in Suhas' Film.. A Hat-trick Achievement?
    Cast: Suhas, Shivani Nagar, Goparaju Ramana, Swarnakanth, Nitin Prasanna, Vinay Mahadev, Jagadeesh Prathap, Sharanya Pradeep Writing and Direction: Dushyant Music: Shekhar Chandra Cinematography: Wajid Beg Editing: Kodati Pavan Kalyan Producers: Dheeraj Mogilineni, Bunny Vas, Venkatesh Maha (Presentation) Release Date: 02-02-2024 Actor Suhas, who began his career as a character artist, swiftly rose to become a lead actor in Tollywood. He gained recognition through films like "Colour Photo" and "Writer Padmabhushan". Amidst this trajectory, another film featuring Suhas as the hero, "Ambajipeta Marriage Band", has caught attention. Partnering with GA2 Pictures and generating interest through promotional materials, expectations for the film have risen. But how does it fare? Does it deliver a hat-trick of successes for Suhas? Let's delve into the review. What's the Story? In "Ambajipeta Marriage Band'', Malli (Suhas) is a member of the titular band. He lives in Chiratapalli with his family. His sister Padma (Sharanya Pradeep) works as a teacher at a local school. A rumor starts circulating that Padma's job was secured through the influence of the village's influential Venkatbabu (Nitin Prasanna), suggesting an illicit relationship between them. Consequently, a feud erupts between Venkatbabu and Malli, escalating like a storm. What happens next? What's the story of Malli and Lakshmi's (Shivani Nagar) love? To find out, one must watch the movie. How Did They Perform? Aside from their roles in "Ambajipeta Marriage Band", the actors are not seen elsewhere. Each actor has fully immersed themselves into their characters. Suhas, in the role of Malli, is outstanding. He entertains with Abbas' hairstyle in the first half and impresses with a bald look in the second half, showcasing natural acting skills, particularly in emotional scenes. Shivani Nagar, as Lakshmi, perfectly embodies her character. Sharanya Pradeep, portraying Suhas' sister, could be considered another hero of the film, with her character's design being a highlight. Nitin, Vinay Madhav, and Jagadish Bandari, who plays the hero's friend, also captivate with their performances. How's the Direction? Numerous films have tackled love stories marred by financial and caste disparities, as well as revenge dramas. This movie falls into the same category. However, the director, Dushyant, has introduced a fresh element by weaving in concepts of sibling emotions and self-respect into the narrative. By naturally portraying the divides between castes and the financial inequalities, he manages to connect the audience to the story. The first half of the movie revolves around a beautiful love story and light-hearted scenes, leading up to a pivotal moment just before the interval that turns the narrative on its head. In the second half, the movie delves into a unique revenge drama, focusing on self-respect. Even though the story progresses as expected, the strong scenes and drama keep the audience engaged without feeling bored. Overall, Dushyant’s directorial effort is commendable. Technically Speaking... All technical departments have showcased commendable work. Shekhar Chandra’s music and background score, along with Wajid Beg’s cinematography, particularly the way he has captured Chiratapalli, stand out as major strengths of the film. The editing and strong writing significantly shift the movie's pace and direction. The film demonstrates a high level of craftsmanship in its making, with a high-quality production value.
