    Ponniyin Selvan-2 Movie Review: Another Artistic Masterpiece from Mani Ratnam!
    Ponniyin Selvan-2 Movie Review: Another Artistic Masterpiece from Mani Ratnam!
    Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan, starring Tamil superstars, has received mixed responses at the box office. Some appreciated it, while others found it difficult to understand. However, the director has raised many questions in the film, and Ponniyin Selvan-2 seeks to answer them. With extensive promotions since last month, the film has finally been released. Did the movie succeed? Did Mani Ratnam create magic? Let's review. Director: Mani Ratnam Cast: Vikram, Aishwarya Rai, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Sobhita, Aishwarya Lekshmi Music: A.R. Rahman Cinematography: Ravi Varman What's the Story? The first part ends with the conspiracy to assassinate Chola Prince Arunmozhi (Jayam Ravi). Did he really die? Will Vallavarayan (Karthi), who set out to uncover the conspiracies of the rival kings, save him? What did Aditya Karikalan (Vikram) do upon hearing the news of his brother's death? Why does Nandini (Aishwarya Rai) wish to witness the end of the Cholas? Ponniyin Selvan-2 is the answer to all these questions. How is it? The movie starts with a voiceover by a megastar. The story unfolds with Vallavarayan, Nandini, and the wise men trying to save Arunmozhi. The plot moves forward with Aditya Karikalan learning about the conspiracy and taking action. The situations between Aditya Karikalan and Nandini serve as the highlight of the movie. Their encounter in one incident is at another level. Nandini's desire to see the end of the Cholas and the ambitions of Pallavarayar to capture the kingdom are never boring. In conclusion, Ponniyin Selvan-2 is a visual treat that delivers stellar performances and an engaging story, making it another artistic masterpiece from Mani Ratnam. Trisha and Aishwarya Rai both dazzled in a frame that was so stunning, it felt like two eyes weren't enough to take it all in. After the film's opening, the decent screenplay gets somewhat slow at times, making the audience feel a bit restless. Even though it's in Mani Ratnam's style, one can't help but feel that a little more polish would have been better. The climax seems to have been wrapped up in a hurry, and the film could have connected more with the audience with a bit more focus. Performances In Ponniyin Selvan 2, Vikram showcases his versatility. Despite limited screen space in the first part, he steals the show in the sequel. Aishwarya Rai is another unforgettable character, shining even in a role with a negative shade. Jayam Ravi and Karthi breathed life into their characters. Many connected with Karthi's character Vallavarayan in the first part of Ponniyin Selvan, and audiences will continue their journey with this character in the sequel. Trisha, Sobhita Dhulipala, and Aishwarya Lakshmi performed admirably within the confines of their roles. Comparing the first part with the second, director Mani Ratnam made some improvements. The film was handled with a sense of balance. Despite the slow narration, the audience will undoubtedly be rooting for the hero. Overall, while the film could have used a bit more polish and focus, the talented ensemble cast and Mani Ratnam's signature touch make it an enjoyable experience for viewers. Technical Aspects One of the highlights of the film is its cinematography. Ravi Varman captivates the audience with his skillful work, bringing the director's vision to life with great finesse. The editing is also commendable. There is no need to mention the production values separately. The music for the film is a plus point. Although A.R. Rahman showcases his talent in this movie, there are moments when it feels like it could have been better. It's not completely disappointing, but it doesn't quite reach the level one would expect from Rahman.

    Mrunal Thakur: Teaming Up Again in Telugu with Dulquer Salmaan - Who's the Director?
    Mrunal Thakur: Teaming Up Again in Telugu with Dulquer Salmaan - Who's the Director?
    The film 'Sita Ramam' was not only a major hit in Telugu but also enjoyed widespread success in multiple languages. Dulquer Salmaan and Mrunal Thakur, the lead pair, received acclaim for their effective partnership. In their roles as Ram and Sita, they enthralled audiences with their poignant love story, creating enchanting on-screen chemistry. Mrunal Thakur, especially in her traditional attire, captivated the Telugu audience. Recent reports suggest that this duo is poised to collaborate again. The upcoming project, said to be another love story, is reportedly being directed by Ravi, a protégé of director Parasuram, and produced under the banner of Dil Raju. Hit Pair Repeat Since the triumph of 'Sita Ramam', both Dulquer Salmaan and Mrunal Thakur have struggled to replicate that success. Dulquer's performance in the web series 'King of Kotha' fell short of expectations. Meanwhile, Mrunal Thakur followed up 'Sita Ramam' with roles in 'Hi Nanna' and 'Family Star'. While 'Hi Nanna' performed reasonably at the box office, 'Family Star' did not meet expectations and received mixed reviews. Despite Mrunal's extensive efforts in promoting these films, including viral social media reels with Vijay Deverakonda, the outcomes have been underwhelming. This series of less successful releases has somewhat dimmed her career prospects in Telugu cinema, where she faces increasing competition from emerging actresses. Will Mrunal Thakur's Charm Continue? Mrunal Thakur has been acting in Bollywood for over a decade and starred alongside Hrithik Roshan in 'Super 30', but she has yet to establish a strong foothold in Bollywood. However, her foray into Tollywood with just one film brought her immense success and moved her to tears with the affection she received from Telugu audiences. 'Sita Ramam' set her on a prestigious path in Tollywood, earning her ₹80 lakhs for the role and boosting her fee to ₹1.5 crore for subsequent films. Despite the underperformance of 'Family Star', she continues to receive opportunities in Telugu cinema. Her upcoming project with Dulquer Salmaan, directed by Ravi, could be a pivotal moment in her career. Village Backdrop Story The on-screen chemistry between Dulquer Salmaan and Mrunal Thakur has captivated Telugu audiences, leading Tollywood directors and producers to consider reuniting them for another film. Ravi, who has previously assisted director Parasuram, is set to direct a new and unique love story featuring Dulquer. This upcoming film is said to be set in a village, and Ravi has already completed the script. Producer Dil Raju has approved the project and will produce it under his banner, Venkateswara Creations. Music Director GV Prakash, renowned for his contributions to Tamil cinema, has been chosen to score the music for this new film. Excited about the project, he looks forward to delivering another hit soundtrack, following his successful work on the Telugu film 'Sir'. The filming is slated to start after Dulquer and Mrunal wrap up their ongoing projects. While official announcements are pending, anticipation is already building around the return of this popular duo.

    Pareshan Movie Review: The comedy is Decent, will  Masood's Hero deliver a  Hit with 'Pareshan?
    Pareshan Movie Review: The comedy is Decent, will  Masood's Hero deliver a  Hit with 'Pareshan?
    Starring: Thiruveer, Pavani, Sai Prasanna, Arjun Krishna, Muralidhar Goud, Shruti Ryan Directed by: Ronald Rupakson Music: Yashwant Nag Cinematography: Vasu Producer: Siddharth Rallapally Presented by: Rana Daggubati Telangana-themed movies are creating a buzz in Tollywood, blending the dialect, language, and cultural traditions of the region to achieve great success. Films like Fidaa, Balagam, Jati Ratnalu, and Dussehra have become massive hits. The recently released movie 'Pareshan' is also set against the backdrop of Telangana. Thiruveer, known for his role in 'Masooda,' takes the lead in this film directed by Ronald Rupakson. Siddharth Rallapalli produces the movie, and Rana Daggubati presents it, raising expectations among the audience. Today, on June 2, the movie 'Pareshan' was released. Let's find out how this movie fares and if it manages to impress. Story Isaac, a student at ITI, spends his time hanging out with friends, neglecting his studies. He often gets into fights with his friends while indulging in heavy drinking. Frustrated with Isaac's behavior, his father, Marpanam (Muralidhar Goud), decides to hand over his job at Singareni to his son. To do so, he sells his wife's jewelry to arrange bribe money. However, Isaac selflessly gives the money to friends in need. This leads to a heated argument between father and son. On the other hand, complications arise when Isaac's love interest, Sirisha (Pavani Karanam), becomes pregnant. Isaac faces new troubles when the money he arranged for an abortion gets stolen, pushing him into desperate need of money. What will Isaac do to secure the funds, and what consequences will he face? That forms the crux of the story. Performances Thiruveer delivers a brilliant performance as Isaac, effectively immersing himself in the character. He outshines his role in Masooda with his acting skills. The characters of Isaac's friends, RGV, Maidak, and Satthi (Arjun Krishna), establish a strong connection with the audience. Their struggles for money bring laughter to the theater, with Satthi's character being the highlight of the movie. Muralidhar Goud, as Isaac's father, once again displays his mark of excellence, entertaining the audience as a father longing for his son's future. Pavani showcases her acting prowess in the role of Sirisha, the film's heroine. Despite most of the actors being newcomers, they demonstrate a commendable level of experience in their performances. However, in some scenes, their inexperience becomes evident. Technical Aspects Director Ronald Rupakson has chosen a good story but faces challenges in its execution. Some scenes seem disconnected from one another. The excessive focus on drunkenness throughout most of the film might leave the audience somewhat bored. Nevertheless, the comedy scenes between the main characters are well-executed and bring a fresh feeling to the narrative. With better-quality scene writing and careful attention to the filmmaking process, the movie could have avoided these shortcomings. Technical Aspects: Impressive Cinematography, But Some Flaws Vasu's cinematography stands out as a positive aspect of 'Pareshan.' He effectively captures the village environment with his camera work. However, more attention could have been given to the editing. Yashwant Nag's music is satisfactory, although the background music appears exaggerated at times, failing to sync seamlessly with the scenes.  Pros Impressive performances by the lead actor Comedy elements that entertain Noteworthy cinematography Cons Weak screenplay Editing issues Inconsistent background music Rating: 3/5

    Gangs Of Godavari Review: Vishwak Sen and Neha Shetty's Romance is Superb! But One Thing is Missing!!
    Gangs Of Godavari Review: Vishwak Sen and Neha Shetty's Romance is Superb! But One Thing is Missing!!
    Cast: Vishwak Sen, Anjali, Neha Shetty, Nassar, P. Sai Kumar, Hyper Aadi, and others Director: Krishna Chaitanya Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja Cinematography: Anith Madadi Producer: Suryadevara Naga Vamsi, Sai Soujanya Release Date: 31-05-2024 Vishwak Sen stars in the latest film 'Gangs of Godavari', directed by Krishna Chaitanya, featuring Neha Shetty as the heroine and Anjali in a key role. The film is produced by the renowned Suryadevara Naga Vamsi. The trailers and teasers released so far have significantly captivated the audience, raising expectations for the film. Released in theaters on May 31, how does this movie fare? Did it impress the audience? Is it another hit for Vishwak? Let's find out in this review. Plot Lankala Ratnam (Vishwak Sen) is an idle young man who cannot tolerate the injustices happening in his village's politics. He decides to enter politics with the aim of changing the system. Faced with unexpected challenges, how does he overcome them? How does he win over the girl he loves? Does he achieve his political goals? That is the story. Performances Young hero Vishwak Sen mesmerizes once again with his mass performance, fully embodying the character of Lankala Ratnam. This role showcases a new dimension of Vishwak's acting, particularly shining in the action scenes. Neha Shetty impresses with her unique acting style, and the chemistry between Vishwak and Neha is well-executed, with their romantic scenes being a highlight. The song "Andala Rani" is sure to elicit whistles in theaters. Anjali also gets a significant role as Ratnamala, delivering a performance filled with mass dialogues that entertain the audience. Hyper Aadi, Jabardasth fame provides comic relief with his punchlines. The supporting cast also does justice to their roles. Direction Director Krishna Chaitanya successfully brings an engaging story to the screen, distinct from his previous works like 'Rowdy Fellow' and 'Chal Mohan Ranga'. He skillfully utilizes each character to fit the narrative. Key scenes in the climax and father-daughter moments add a lot to the film. However, compared to the first half, the second half moves a bit slower, with routine scenes and a regular storyline slightly detracting from the overall experience. Technical Aspects On the technical front, Yuvan Shankar Raja's background music stands out, effectively enhancing the action sequences. Anith Madadi's cinematography is impressive. The editing is satisfactory, and the production values are top-notch, with no compromises made in terms of budget. Plus Points - Vishwak Sen's performance - Dialogues - Music Minus Points - Regular storyline - Slow narration Telugu.yousay.tv Rating: 3/5 Public Talk on Gangs of Godavari A netizen posted on X that the movie is very good but noted some lagging scenes while praising the screenplay.  https://twitter.com/raghav917252/status/1796382241532334575 Another netizen remarked on seeing house-full shows after a long time, calling it a massive weekend.  https://twitter.com/PulakithSai/status/1796399917969412273 One more viewer commented that while the first half is good, the story lacks novelty but never gets boring.  https://twitter.com/PinkCancerian/status/1796336006402355622 A netizen compared 'Gangs of Godavari' to a fast-track version of 'Pushpa', criticizing the editing but appreciating the runtime's crispness.  https://twitter.com/Kamal_Tweetz/status/1796330322730373525 https://telugu.yousay.tv/know-all-about-the-tollywoods-emerging-star-vishwak-sen.html https://telugu.yousay.tv/en/do-you-know-these-top-secrets-about-neha-shetty.html

    'Bahubali: Crown of Blood' Review: An Animated Series on Disney+ Hotstar
    'Bahubali: Crown of Blood' Review: An Animated Series on Disney+ Hotstar
    Directors: Jeevan J. Kang, Navin John Music: Kaala Bhairava Editing: Tarun Prasad Producers: Shobu Yarlagadda, Prasad Devineni, SS Rajamouli, Jeevan J. Kang, Sharad Devarajan, Shaik Maqbool Release Date: May 17, 2024 OTT Platform: Disney+ Hotstar The movie "Bahubali," starring Prabhas, Rana, Anushka, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah, Sathyaraj, and Nassar, significantly raised the bar for Indian cinema, achieving substantial box office success across its two installments. This success has led to eager anticipation for a third installment. Addressing this anticipation, the creators have released an animated series called "Bahubali: Crown of Blood," which began streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from May 17. This series, spanning nine episodes, aims to engage the OTT audience.  Storyline Taking place before Bahubali's death, the series focuses on the antagonist Raktadev, who launches a campaign to conquer the kingdoms around Mahishmati and soon targets Mahishmati itself, intent on seizing it. Bahubali and Bhallaladeva intervene to stop him, but unexpectedly, Kattappa starts working for Raktadev. Who exactly is Raktadev? Why does Kattappa work for him? What danger does Raktadev bring to Mahishmati? Were Bahubali and Bhallaladeva able to defend their realm? To find out, watch the series. Review "Bahubali: Crown of Blood" showcases strong graphic work, dynamic battle sequences, and interesting character developments, particularly with the well-crafted villain, Raktadev. His menacing presence is well executed, reminiscent of the formidable villains in Rajamouli’s previous films. A notably captivating aspect is Kattappa’s unexpected alliance with Raktadev. The series introduces a range of unique weapons, but may not entirely meet the high expectations set by the original Bahubali films. The animated version of Prabhas’s character might not appeal strongly to fans, and the Telugu dubbing is somewhat lacking. Nonetheless, the series picks up momentum in the final four episodes, which are quite gripping. Technically In technical terms, "Bahubali: Crown of Blood" features satisfactory background music, although it doesn't reach the heights of Keeravani’s compositions. The editing is robust, and the graphics department has excelled, providing high-quality visuals. The animation for characters, aside from Bahubali, is effectively done. The production values are commendably high, fitting well with the series' scope. Highlights Story and screenplay Animation work Battle scenes Drawbacks Telugu dubbing Lack of emotional depth Rating by Telugu.yousay.tv: 3/5

    Prathinidhi 2 Review: Nara Rohit captivates as a journalist but…
    Prathinidhi 2 Review: Nara Rohit captivates as a journalist but…
    Cast: Nara Rohit, Siri Lella, Dinesh Tej, Saptagiri, Tanikella Bharani, Indraja, Udaya Bhanu, Ajay Ghosh, Ajay, Praveen, Prudhvi Raj, Raghbabu and others Director: Murthy Devagupthapu Music: Mahati Swara Sagar Editing: Raviteja Girijala Cinematography: Nani Chamidishetty Producers: Kumararaja Battula, Anjaneyulu Sri Thota, Surendranath Bollineni Production Companies: Vanara Entertainments, Rana Arts Release Date: May 10, 2024 Nara Rohit reprises his role as the protagonist in the newest political action flick 'Prathinidhi 2,' a follow-up to its predecessor 'Prathinidhi.' Helmed by acclaimed journalist Murthy Devagupthapu, this political thriller has captured widespread attention, particularly due to its release timing amidst the AP elections. The promotional materials, including posters and trailers, have already stirred curiosity. Has it succeeded in leaving a mark on the audience? Story Chetan (played by Nara Rohit) embodies integrity as a journalist. Operating as a freelance reporter, he fearlessly unveils the truth, ultimately ascending to the position of CEO at NCC Channel. From this vantage point, Chetan embarks on a mission to uncover the misdeeds of political figures. However, amidst his crusade, an assassination attempt targets CM Prajapathi (portrayed by Sachin Khedekar). Who stands behind this sinister plot? And what revelations surface through the ensuing CBI investigation? To fully grasp the depth of Nara Rohit's battle against the political establishment, one must experience the narrative unfold on screen. Performance Review Nara Rohit shines in his portrayal of journalist Chetan, adeptly conveying emotional depth and commanding the action sequences. His performance stands out as a highlight in the initial half of the film. Siri Lella, though with a restricted role, captivates viewers' interest in the latter part. Sachin Khedekar leaves an indelible impression with his portrayal of the CM. Additionally, commendable performances are delivered by Dinesh Tej, Jisshu Sengupta, Ajay Ghosh, Prudhvi Raj, and Udaya Bhanu, collectively enhancing the cinematic experience. Direction Review Director Murthy adeptly shapes the film into a commercial political drama, offering a unique perspective on journalism and political structures. The opening sequences skillfully establish the protagonist's integrity and the noble essence of journalism. The initial half portrays the hero wielding a pen, while in the latter half, he transitions to wielding a sword, leading to pivotal plot turns. The director's depiction of the significance of a vote resonates powerfully, yet certain political scenes may verge on excessive dramatization. Additionally, the familial backdrop of the hero in the latter half may seem somewhat conventional, and the portrayal of the CBI appears overly simplistic. Technical Aspects Technically, the film is well-crafted. Nani Chamidishetty’s cinematography and Mahati Swara Sagar’s background score are strengths. The editor could have been more stringent, especially in the second half. The production values are appropriate for the film’s scale. Plus Points - Nara Rohit’s acting - Twists in the story - Political dialogues Minus Points - Editing - Some illogical scenes Telugu.yousay.tv Rating: 2.5/5

    EXCLUSIVE: Timeless Supporting Roles in Tollywood: Take a Look!
    EXCLUSIVE: Timeless Supporting Roles in Tollywood: Take a Look!
    In films, the hero and heroine often dominate the spotlight, leaving a lasting impression on the audience. Occasionally, a villain's remarkable performance can also garner significant attention. However, there are instances where supporting characters, regardless of their popularity, etch a permanent mark on the minds of viewers. These characters manage to hold the audience's attention throughout their screen presence. Sathyaraj (Baahubali) In 'Baahubali', following the roles of Prabhas and Rana, the character that stands out most is Kattappa. Director Rajamouli skillfully shaped this role, making it integral to the film. Imagining 'Baahubali' without Kattappa is difficult.
