    A new trend in Tollywood, young heroes turning into directors
    In the film industry, the 'Director' holds a crucial position comparable to that of a team leader, guiding the hero and the rest of the cast. The director typically receives acclaim or criticism for the film's outcome. Presently, there's an emerging trend in Tollywood where numerous young actors are venturing into directing and writing. We will explore these actors who have leaped ‘Directorial Role’ in Tollywood. Adivi Sesh Leading the pack in this category is the versatile actor and young hero Adivi Sesh. He made a mark as a director with the film 'Karma,' captivating everyone's attention. Not only did Sesh write and direct the film, but he also played the lead role, earning significant acclaim. Though his next directorial, 'Kiss,' was not as successful, Adivi Sesh is currently making a name for himself as a writer and hero. Vishwak Sen Gaining recognition with 'Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi,' Vishwak Sen has shown his multifaceted talent as a screenplay writer, writer, hero, and director. He directed and received praise for 'Falaknuma Das' (2019), where he also acted and produced the film. Years later, he directed 'Das Ka Dhamki' (2023), which was a success. The recently released film 'Gaami' has also been successful, and 'Gangs of Godavari' is awaiting release. Siddu Jonnalagadda Currently one of Tollywood's most sought-after heroes as a director is Siddu Jonnalagadda. Known for his story writing, screenplay, and editing skills, Siddu, who gained fame with the blockbuster 'DJ Tillu,' also provided the story for its sequel 'Tillu Square,' which became a hit. Before these films, he contributed stories and dialogues to movies like 'Guntur Talkies,' 'Krishna and His Leela,' and 'Maa Vintha Gaadha Vinuma.' A sequel to 'Tillu Square,' titled 'Tillu Cube,' has been recently announced. Rahul Ravindran Rahul Ravindran, who starred as the hero in films like "Andala Rakshasi," "Tiger," and "Ala Ela," took up the megaphone as a director with the film "Chi La Sow."

    Questionable Calls: Examining Tollywood's Most Controversial or baffling Scenes
    Questionable Calls: Examining Tollywood's Most Controversial or baffling Scenes
    No matter if a film succeeds or fails, certain scenes always manage to make a lasting impression on audiences. Some scenes become iconic, while others are enigmatic and leave viewers perplexed. This phenomenon is not uncommon in Tollywood. It remains a mystery why established stars agree to partake in either challenging or inadequately scripted scenes. What persuades these actors to accept such roles from directors? The audience is left wondering. Which scenes or movies are these? Who are the actors involved? We’ll explore these questions in this exclusive article. Prakash Raj Prakash Raj is celebrated for his versatility, skillfully portraying a wide range of characters from fathers to villains, police officers to political leaders, and businessmen. In the film 'Ongole Gittha', Prakash Raj surprised everyone by appearing nude. The details of how director Bommarillu Bhaskar persuaded him to perform in this scene are still unknown. Each time viewers see this scene, they are left wondering how such a renowned actor agreed to it. https://youtu.be/b9sEa8Wci0I?si=6vU0P_iid5_zddZp Mahesh Babu In the film 'Spyder', directed by Tamil director Murugadoss, superstar Mahesh Babu took on the lead role. Fans were puzzled as to why Mahesh agreed to the project after learning about its plot, as the film was criticized for seeming like a patchwork of several other movies. A similar question arose during the production of 'Brahmotsavam', directed by Srikanth Addala. Notably, 'Brahmotsavam' ended up being one of the major flops in Mahesh’s career. Mohan Babu In the 2018 film 'Gayatri', Mohan Babu appeared in an item song alongside two beautiful actresses, causing quite a stir. His performance was marked by excessive affection, notably a kiss on a young woman's navel, which shocked many viewers. The song attracted considerable criticism at the time. Questions arose about why Mohan Babu, given his age, agreed to engage in romantic scenes with women half his age. It remains a topic of curiosity as to what director Pattabhiraman said to convince him to participate in this song. https://youtu.be/DnA_YU0_O0A?si=BWJKHWSCu2UYEW_X Venkatesh Venkatesh, a veteran actor cherished by family audiences, is typically expected to appear in films suitable for all ages. However, he took everyone by surprise with his role in the series 'Rana Naidu'. His frequent use of profanity, interspersed throughout his dialogue, was particularly shocking. Viewers of the series found themselves questioning if this was really the same Venkatesh they had come to know. Ram Charan The film 'Vinaya Vidheya Rama', starring Ram Charan and directed by Boyapati Srinu, did not fare well at the box office. Its action sequences, criticized for being excessively unrealistic, included scenes where Ram Charan decapitated gangsters and carried their heads like kites, and another where the villain, played by Vivek Oberoi, survives after a snake bite. These scenes were deemed implausible by the audience, leading to widespread speculation about why Ram Charan agreed to participate in such a film. https://youtu.be/eVkD-_zYpx8?si=ow5GWETle2TCH9Db Prabhas 'Rebel,' featuring Prabhas and directed by Raghava Lawrence, did not succeed at the box office. The attempt to depict Prabhas as an innocent character failed to resonate with fans. Seeing the 6-foot-tall Prabhas dressed in white clothes with a mark on his forehead performing in such scenes was difficult for fans to accept. This led to widespread speculation about what the director might have said to convince darling Prabhas to take on this uncharacteristic role. https://youtu.be/ApysPLa7NN8?si=mKnh-xQbgmPMPA5q

    Ashtadigbandhanam Review: A Fresh Suspense Thriller! What’s the Buzz?
    Ashtadigbandhanam Review: A Fresh Suspense Thriller! What’s the Buzz?
    Telugu suspense thrillers never fail to grab eyeballs. There's something about their captivating plots that hooks the audience. The renowned Director Baba PR, after his directorial debut with 'Saidulu', has ventured into the suspense genre. Vishika Kota, remembered for her role as a younger Tamannaah in 'Racha', graces the screen as the leading lady. Meanwhile, Surya Bharat Chandra, known for his short film performances, takes the lead role in 'Ashtadigbandhanam'. Let’s delve into the essence of the film. Plot Unveiled: Shankar, a rowdy sheeter who works for a political leader, is envious of his colleague Rowdy Sheeter securing an MLA ticket. He approaches the political leader Ramulanna, expressing his desire to compete as well. The condition? A cool sum of Rs.50 crores for the ticket. As Shankar strategizes with his gang, our protagonists, Surya and Vishika Kota, find themselves entangled in his scheming web. The unfolding mystery? Unearthing the location of Rs 100 crore given to Shankar by the Political leader and deciphering the mastermind behind the grand plot. The movie unravels these mysteries with exciting twists. Film's Verdict: An echoing dialogue from the trailer sets the film's tone: "This War is not for Kingdom... Not for Land,  not for royalty or might, but for ego. A conflict sparked by ego only ceases when the ego disappears when the person dies." Baba P.R. masterfully weaves this ethos into the film’s fabric. The narrative questions the ramifications of ego-driven actions. The initial half is straightforward, but an engaging twist at the interval keeps viewers glued for what's next. Though a few narrative elements might raise eyebrows, on the whole, it's a delightful watch for thriller aficionados. Performance Highlights: In a cast of fresh faces, Presh’s portrayal stands out. Bharat Chandra delivers a satisfactory performance as the male lead. Vishika Kota, with her radiant charm, steals scenes and introduces an unexpected character twist. Mahesh Raoul, in the shoes of the antagonist Shankar, exudes menace brilliantly, particularly in action sequences. The ensemble cast contributes commendably to their roles. Technical Take: On the technical front, the film scores high. Jackson Vijayan's music composition, coupled with stirring songs and BGM, enhances the movie's ambiance. Action sequences are crafted well, though a tighter edit by Satya in certain segments would have been the icing on the cake. Pros: Engrossing thriller narrative Cliffhanger at the interval Stellar depiction of the antagonist, Shankar Cons: Occasional logical oversights Few scenes seem out of place Final Thoughts: If suspense thrillers are your jam, this one's a treat! Rating: 3.5/5.

    Devara Prepone: Tarak in place of Pawan.. 'Devara' releases earlier than expected!
    Leading actor NTR and director Koratala Siva are teaming up for the action drama 'Devara'. This pan-India film is eagerly awaited by cinema enthusiasts and fans across the country. Featuring music by the young sensation Anirudh, the film stars Bollywood beauty Janhvi Kapoor opposite Tarak. Initially, the makers announced an October 10th release date. However, there is strong buzz in Tollywood that the release date might be changed. Coming sooner..! The film 'Devara', directed by Koratala Siva starring Tarak, is rapidly progressing through its shooting schedule. The first single from the movie has already been released to positive reception. Currently, there's strong speculation that 'Devara' will hit theaters earlier than the announced date, possibly two weeks prior, with plans moving forward for a September 27th release. The reason for the prepone! Originally, 'OG', starring Power Star Pawan Kalyan, was slated for a September 27th release. However, with Pawan Kalyan dedicating his time entirely to Andhra Pradesh politics and his recent oath as a minister, his availability for 'OG' shootings is in doubt, leading to talks that 'OG' might not release this year. Thus, the 'Devara' team is considering seizing the date locked for 'OG', hoping for a release on September 27th if everything goes as planned. Shooting in Goa.. Currently, the 'Devara' team is busy shooting in Goa. Scenes involving romantic sequences between Tarak and Janhvi Kapoor are being filmed. The first single composed by rockstar Anirudh Ravichander has created a sensation on YouTube. Preparations are underway to release a second song soon, rumored to be a romantic melody. OTT rights sold for a hefty price! Before its theatrical release, 'Devara' has already sold its OTT rights. Netflix has secured these rights for a substantial amount, with reports suggesting a deal worth approximately Rs. 155 crores. It is agreed that 'Devara' will stream on Netflix 56 days after its theatrical release, with potential releases in multiple South Indian languages besides Telugu and Hindi. NTR’s role in 'Devara'! After the success of 'Janatha Garage', expectations are high from the NTR and Koratala Siva combo in 'Devara'. Tarak is set to portray a leader resolving the issues of coastal communities. Director Koratala Siva is expected to elevate NTR's heroism to epic proportions in this film. On the other hand, Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan is playing a powerful villain, a role that promises to be as formidable as the protagonist. 'Devara' is planned to be released in two parts, adding to the anticipation among the audience.

    Devara's 'First Song', Garners Mixed Feedback from Fans and Critics
    The pan-Indian movie 'Devara,' starring NTR and directed by Koratala Siva, features Bollywood star Janhvi Kapoor alongside Tarak. Set against a coastal backdrop, the film is being produced in two segments. The first segment is scheduled for release on October 10. In honor of Tarak's birthday on May 20, the film's team released its first song yesterday. Presently, the song is eliciting mixed reactions; while some are appreciating it, others are voicing their discontent on social media. The Fear Song The film's team released the first song titled 'Fear Song' on Sunday evening (May 19). This lyrical video was published on YouTube in multiple languages including Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Hindi, and Malayalam. The lyrics for the Telugu version were written by Ramajogayya Sastry, with music composed and sung by Anirudh. As of now, the song has achieved 4.7 million views within the first 20 hours in its Telugu version and is also gaining substantial appreciation in other languages. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKpbdCciELk&list=PLTtJUIuknk91d-Sq1qbTeI0WM0R6EbuZS&index=3 Anirudh's Elevations While NTR's fans were thrilled with the first song from 'Devara', other music enthusiasts and netizens have mixed feelings. They are questioning Anirudh's specific contributions to NTR's birthday song, pointing out that Anirudh appears more prominent than Tarak himself. There are critiques that the tune was merely repurposed from the title track of the film 'Vikram' for 'Devara'. Comments have been made that the music overwhelmed the lyrics to the extent that only the phrase 'Devara mungita nuvventha' was distinctly audible. Following the release of the song, some viewers have expressed that their expectations for the film 'Devara' have lessened. Is the Song a Copy? After listening to the 'Fear Song' from 'Devara', some netizens have noted its similarity to tracks from previous films. Particularly, the Tamil audience has pointed out online that the song bears a resemblance to the ‘Badass’ song from the movie 'Leo'. With the song also released in Tamil, there are circulating posts accusing music director Anirudh of copying once again. NTR's Role in Devara With the successful NTR and Koratala Siva pairing from 'Janatha Garage', expectations for 'Devara' are high. In this film, Tarak portrays a leader addressing the challenges faced by a coastal community. The previews released thus far indicate that director Koratala is poised to enhance NTR's heroic stature to new heights. Meanwhile, Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan is cast in a formidable villain role, promising a strong on-screen confrontation with NTR.

From 2019 onwards, political films have taken center stage in Tollywood, and this trend continues in 2024, with each movie adding its unique narrative to the political discourse. Yatra The film "Yatra" chronicles the political journey of the late Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy. Directed by Mahi V. Raghav, it delves into the reasons behind YSR's political yatra and the public sentiment regarding his governance, particularly in the context of Chandrababu Naidu's nine-year rule. Released before the 2019 AP Assembly elections, the film received critical acclaim and contributed positively to the political narrative, especially within the YSRCP. NTR Mahanayakudu Highlighting the political life of N.T. Rama Rao, the former Chief Minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh, "NTR Mahanayakudu" portrays his journey and the challenges he faced.

Lakshmi's NTR Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, "Lakshmi's NTR" depicts the life of NTR post his marriage to Lakshmi Parvathi and the subsequent political turmoil within his family and party. The film explores the reasons behind NTR's sidelining by his family members and his eventual downfall, portraying it as a consequence of political conspiracies orchestrated by his son-in-law Chandrababu Naidu and other opposition leaders. Despite facing controversies and obstacles, the film was a commercial success, resonating with the opposition parties, particularly the YSRCP. Amma Rajyam Lo Kadapa Biddalu  Released in December 2019, "Amma Rajyam Lo Kadapa Biddalu" is a political drama directed by Ram Gopal Varma, focusing on the political scenario in Andhra Pradesh during Chief Minister Y.S.

The film sheds light on the challenges faced by Jagan Mohan Reddy and his party in implementing their agenda, amidst opposition from Chandrababu Naidu and others. With his distinct style, Varma presents a compelling narrative, reflecting the complexities of contemporary Andhra Pradesh politics. Rajadhani Files Based on the initiative taken by 29 villages of Guntur and Krishna districts against the Andhra Pradesh government, this movie was made. Directed by Bhanu Shankar, Akhilan Pushparaj, Vishal Pati, Vinod Kumar, and Vani Vishwanath played pivotal roles. This film deserves attention for targeting Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan. Leader Under the direction of Sekhar Kammula, the movie 'Leader' turned out to be a blockbuster. It introduced Rana to the industry. It's about Arjun (Rana), who becomes the Chief Minister after his father's death but has no interest in power. The movie depicts his struggle against injustice and casteism in society. Mickey J. Meyer's music adds to its appeal. Bharat Ane Nenu The political action thriller starring Mahesh Babu, directed by Koratala Siva, achieved great success. Bharat (Mahesh) steps into the role of CM after his father's demise and strives to do good for the people. How does he tackle the problems he faces?
