    Aadikeshava Review: Mega Nephew Excels in Action Scenes with His 'Rudra Tandav' Performance. How is 'Aadikeshava'?
    Aadikeshava Review: Mega Nephew Excels in Action Scenes with His 'Rudra Tandav' Performance. How is 'Aadikeshava'?
    Cast: Panja Vaisshnav Tej, Sreeleela, Joju George, Sada, Sudarshan, Radhika Sarath Kumar, Jayaprakash, Tanikella Bharani, Suman, Aparna Das, and others. Writer and Director: Sreekanth N. Reddy Cinematography: Dudley Music: GV Prakash Kumar Production Houses: Sithara Entertainments, Fortune Four Cinemas Producers: Suryadevara Naga Vamsi, Sai Soujanya Release Date: November 24, 2023 Mega Nephew Panja Vaisshnav Tej, who gained a blockbuster hit with his debut movie 'Uppena', didn't achieve the same level of success in his subsequent films. However, he had high hopes for his latest movie 'Aadikeshava'. Different from his past movies, he appeared in a mass look in this one. Did 'Aadikeshava' bring him success? Did the Vaisshnav-Sreeleela pair impress the audience? Let's find out in this review. Story Baloo (Vaisshnav Tej), raised under his mother's shadow, grows up boldly but can't tolerate injustice. He confronts anyone regardless of their power. Forced by his parents, he joins a cosmetic company. He falls in love with the CEO, Chitravati (Sreeleela). A man from Brahmasamudram tells Baloo that he has a different family and his real name is Rudra Kaleswar Reddy. Who is Baloo? What happens when he goes to Brahmasamudram? How does he confront Chengareddy (Joju George), the antagonist causing havoc in the region? To know, one must watch the movie. Review The first half is light-hearted, showing friendship, love, and family scenes in Hyderabad. The story takes a turn at the interval. The second half is all about Baloo's confrontation with Chengareddy. The film follows a pattern - a song when the hero and heroine meet, and a fight when the hero and villain face each other. Performances Vaisshnav Tej has once again proved himself as a good actor. He is entertaining as a lover boy in the first half and shows valor as Rudra Kaleswar Reddy in the second. Sreeleela doesn't have much scope for acting but excels in dance. Radhika, as the hero's mother, impresses. Joju George, as the villain, appears cruel but his character lacks impact. Aparna Das, Suman, Tanikella Bharani, and others performed well within their roles. Sudarshan provided some comic relief. Direction The film has elements of love, family bonds, drama, and politics but director Sreekanth N. Reddy struggled to present them effectively. Apart from a few twists, the story and narration lack novelty, resembling old faction movies. Emotional scenes and suspenseful moments are missing. Despite weak writing, the direction is good. Technically The technical aspects of the film are commendable. Dudley's cinematography is captivating. GV Prakash Kumar's songs aren't memorable, but the background score is good. Other departments also showed good work. Production values are high. Positives Vaisshnav Tej's actingTwistsBackground music Negatives Routine story and narrationLack of emotional depth Rating: 2.5/5

Rangasthalam The movie 'Rangasthalam,' a collaboration between Ram Charan and director Sukumar, is set in the transport villages of the Godavari region during the 1980s.

Dasara In the film 'Dasara,' starring Nani, the influence of the Peddapalli/Ramagundam areas of Telangana is evident. Nani skillfully delivers dialogues in the local language, enhancing the film’s authenticity. Director Srikanth Odela captures the daily lives of those residing near the Singareni coal mines. The portrayal resonated well with local audiences, who expressed their appreciation for the film's depiction of their region.

Virata Parvam Starring Rana and Sai Pallavi, 'Virata Parvam' is set in Naxal-affected regions, primarily during 1990-92 in the agency areas of the Mulugu district. The film portrays how people's lives were intertwined with the influences of politicians, Maoists, and police during that period. Ismart Shankar Directed by Puri Jagannadh and featuring Ram Pothineni, 'Ismart Shankar' is set in the Old City area. The hero's dialogue and expressions authentically mirror those of the local residents. Nabha Natesh, who plays the heroine, notably identifies herself repeatedly as a girl from Warangal, adding depth to her character. C/o Kancharapalem Directed by Maha Venkatesh, 'C/o Kancharapalem' made a significant impact upon its release. The film is set in North Andhra and features a dialect typical of the Vizianagaram district. Key roles were performed by Karthik Ratnam, Raju, Radha Bessy, and Praneeta Patnaik, who brought the characters to life with their authentic portrayals. Raja Vaaru Rani Gaaru 'Raja Vaaru Rani Gaaru,' featuring Kiran Abbavaram, captures the essence of the twin Godavari districts beautifully. The film showcases the pristine environment of local villages, providing audiences with a vivid depiction of rural life. To truly appreciate the native culture of the Godavari region, this film is a must-watch. Films shot near Godavari Tollywood has a rich history of films set in the Godavari districts.

    HBD Ram Charan: Did You Know the Restrictions Chiru Placed on Ram Charan During His Childhood?
    HBD Ram Charan: Did You Know the Restrictions Chiru Placed on Ram Charan During His Childhood?
    As the son of Megastar Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan stepped into the industry and carved a unique star status for himself in Tollywood. Making his debut with "Chirutha," Ramcharan went on to score an industry hit with his second film "Magadheera." With "Rangasthalam," he proved his acting prowess, and "RRR" elevated him to a global star status. On the occasion of Charan's birthday, let's delve into some fascinating details about his childhood. Ramcharan was extremely shy in his childhood. He rarely participated in family functions. While Allu Arjun and Allu Sirish danced, he would just watch them and cheer. Today, Ramcharan's dancing skills can be attributed to the talent inherited from Chiru. Interestingly, Charan never took any dance coaching except for acting lessons. It's remarkable how he mastered dancing without formal training. Growing up, Ramcharan wasn't particularly interested in movies, which could partly be due to Chiranjeevi's influence. Chiru made sure that the allure of cinema didn't distract Charan. To ensure Charan focused on his studies, even movie posters were not allowed at home. Chiru granted "cinematic freedom" to his son only after he completed his 10th grade. As for Charan's academic life, he was an average student and never stayed in one school for more than two years. Throughout his childhood to teenage years, Charan frequently changed schools and colleges. In total, he has attended 8 schools and 3 colleges. However, sports, more than studies, captured his interest. He learned horse riding as early as the fourth grade, showcasing his skills in "Magadheera." Chiru was just as strict about bike riding as he was about movies, hence he didn't encourage Charan to pursue bike riding. Charan has a great love for pets and often gifts them to relatives and friends on their birthdays or weddings. Every year, Charan is seen wearing a new spiritual thread, believing it brings peace and discipline into his life. Charan married Upasana, Vice-Chairperson of Apollo Hospitals, in 2012. The couple has a daughter named Klin Kaara. Chiranjeevi's comments on his movies, whether it's about a dance or a fight scene, hold great importance to Charan. After watching "Dhruva," Chiru appreciated Charan for doing justice to his role and character. Watching "Rangasthalam," Charan's mother was moved to tears, making these moments unforgettable for him. To date, Ramcharan has entertained Telugu audiences with 14 diverse films including "Chirutha," "Magadheera," "Orange," "Racha," "Govindudu Andarivadele," "Dhruva," "Rangasthalam," and "RRR." Currently, he is busy with "Game Changer," directed by the renowned director Shankar, which is set to release soon. Charan is also working on a film (#RC16) directed by "Uppena" fame Buchibabu. The film, where he stars opposite Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor, recently had its puja ceremony. Furthermore, Charan has officially announced another project, "RC17," with director Sukumar, following the blockbuster success of "Rangasthalam." This collaboration has set high expectations among fans.

Chiru's son Ram Charan is to star alongside Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor as the heroine. This news is currently a hot topic in the industry. Expectations are already high for this duo to remind the audience of the iconic Chiru - Sridevi pair. The Film That Brings Them Together! It is known that Ram Charan is set to lead in a film directed by Buchi Babu Sana, set against a rural backdrop as a sports drama. Currently, the selection of actors for this movie is underway. Recently, the film team has reportedly fixed the heroine. Information is that Janhvi Kapoor, the daughter of Sridevi and Boney Kapoor, has been chosen to pair with Charan. Boney Kapoor himself revealed this in an interview. A video related to this news is going viral on the internet. https://twitter.com/i/status/1759275401048649821 'Enjoying Every Moment on the Set of 'Devar'' Janhvi Kapoor is also acting in the film 'Devar', starring Tarak (Jr NTR) and directed by Koratala Siva. Boney Kapoor responded about this movie in a recent interview, saying, "Our daughter is enjoying every moment on the set of 'Devar'. Whenever possible, Janhvi watches Telugu movies to improve her acting and language skills. Both NTR and Charan are unique. Acting alongside them is a great opportunity for Janhvi. I hope both movies rock the box office. Janhvi should get more opportunities to act in various films. My wife Sridevi acted in multiple languages, and I wish my daughter would do the same." https://twitter.com/i/status/1759489211156341061 Janhvi Sets Her Eyes on the South Industry! Despite acting in over nine Bollywood films, Janhvi Kapoor has yet to achieve notable success. Moreover, she faces stiff competition from star heroines like Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, and Priyanka Chopra. As a result, she has turned her attention to the South Indian film industry. With many South Indian films being released at a pan-India level, Janhvi is keen on enhancing her popularity by acting in them. In this context, besides 'Devar' with Tarak and a film with Ram Charan, she is also ready to act in another movie with Tamil star Suriya. If these films succeed, there won't be any stopping her career, according to her plan. Will Janhvi Become Another Sreeleela? In Tollywood, all star heroes have almost worked with top heroines. Hence, directors looking to cast new heroines alongside them are showing interest in fresh faces. In this backdrop, Sreeleela received a series of film offers. Before her, Krithi Shetty of 'Uppena' fame also received opportunities in this regard. Currently, as Krithi Shetty's chances have dwindled and Sreeleela's movies haven't fared well at the box office, directors and producers are now focusing on Janhvi Kapoor. In this process, she is getting chances to act alongside star heroes, making cine circles speculate that Janhvi Kapoor could be the next big thing like Sreeleela.

    Virupaksha Full Movie Review: Horror and Suspense with Virupaksha… Sai Dharam Tej's superb comeback!
    Virupaksha Full Movie Review: Horror and Suspense with Virupaksha… Sai Dharam Tej's superb comeback!
    After a nearly two-year hiatus, Sai Dharam Tej returned to the screen. The first film he did after recovering from a road accident was Virupaksha. The released teasers and songs have already raised expectations among the audience. Sai had claimed that he had lost his speech after the accident, so how did he perform in the movie? Did another director coming from Sukumar's factory succeed? Or not? Let's find out how Sukumar's screenplay worked. Director: Karthik Dandu Cast: Sai Dharam Tej,  Samyuktha Menon, Sonia Singh, Ravi Krishna Music: Ajaneesh Loknath Cinematography: Shamdat Story In a village called Rudravaram, several people mysteriously die. Are these deaths happening due to some curse or is someone committing the murders? To solve this mystery, hero Sai Dharam Tej takes action. What is Nandini's role? Who is behind the real death mystery? That's the story. How did the movie Fare? The director started the movie with a curse on the village of Rudravaram and swiftly moved into the story without any delays. Sai Dharam plays Surya, and Samyuktha Menon  plays Nandini. The director moved the story forward while depicting their love track. These scenes might seem a bit boring to the audience. However, before the interval, the real story begins with some thrilling situations, which pique the interest for the second half. As people in the village die one by one, the director filled the second half with sequences to unravel the mystery behind it. The gripping storytelling keeps the audience glued to their seats. The film stays strong up until the pre-climax. However, it must be said that there is a bit of confusion towards the end. Performances Sai Dharam Tej's role in this comeback film is exceptional, showcasing another level of acting from the young hero. He completely immersed himself in the role of Surya and captivated the audience with his stellar performance. Samyuktha Menon's presence in the film is also a plus. This heroine, who has been delivering consecutive hits, has impressed the audience once again. She has added another hit to her account, and her acting in the pre-climax scene is captivating. Supporting actors like Sonia Singh and Ajay have performed beyond their roles' boundaries and impressed the audience. Technical Aspects Debutant director Karthik Dandu, who is Sukumar's protege, has delivered a hit with his first film. Just as Buchibabu with Uppena and Srikant Odela with Dasara impressed the audience, Karthik has also showcased his skills in a similar manner. He has handled the Virupaksha film excellently. Another plus point of the film is the screenplay, which was provided by Sukumar himself. It turned out to be fantastic and elevated the film to another level. Ajanesh Loknath has infused life into the Virupaksha film with his music. He impressed with the music he provided for Kantara, and he has done the same for Virupaksha. The background score he has given for the film is a significant asset. The music director has done full justice to the film.

    MEGA HEROES: Mega Family's Domination in Tollywood... So Many Heroes?
    MEGA HEROES: Mega Family's Domination in Tollywood... So Many Heroes?
    Once upon a time in Tollywood, names like NTR, Akkineni Nageshwara Rao, and Superstar Krishna were synonymous with the industry. However, with the arrival of Chiranjeevi, the Telugu film industry saw a significant shift. Chiru, who delivered numerous superhits, established himself as the leading hero and paved the way for the younger generation in his family. Today, Mega Heroes reign supreme in Tollywood, with a minimum of one movie from them hitting the screens every 5 to 6 months. Let's have a glance at the Mega Heroes who are currently dominating the Tollywood scene. Pawan Kalyan Pawan Kalyan, Chiranjeevi's younger brother, stepped into Tollywood and quickly gained a massive fan following. Making his debut with the movie "Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi" (1996), Pawan rose to the top with hits like Suswagatham, Tholi Prema, and Kushi. Recently, his films Vakeel Saab and Bheemla Nayak have been successful at the box office. Currently, Pawan is busy shooting for his upcoming movies, Ustaad Bhagat Singh and Harihara Veera Mallu. Ram Charan Ram Charan, the son of Chiranjeevi, entered the industry and has now reached pan-India stardom with the movie RRR. Charan made his debut with the film Chirutha and later consolidated his position in Tollywood with the movie Magadheera. His fame grew exponentially with the film Rangasthalam, which was further elevated by RRR. Currently, Charan is working on the movie Game Changer, directed by Shankar. After that, he has a movie lined up with Uppena director Buchi Babu. Allu Arjun As Chiranjeevi's nephew and Allu Aravind's son, Allu Arjun entered the world of cinema. With his debut movie "Gangotri," Allu Arjun made a strong impression. Following that, films like Arya, Bunny, and Desamuduru solidified Allu Arjun's status as a leading hero. With the release of the Sukumar-directed film Pushpa, Allu Arjun gained pan-India recognition. He currently holds the top spot among Telugu heroes with the highest number of Instagram followers. Presently, Allu Arjun is busy shooting for Pushpa 2. Sai Dharam Tej Chiranjeevi's nephew, Sai Dharam Tej, also entered the industry as a Mega Hero. He captivated Telugu audiences with his 2014 film "Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham." He then garnered superhits through movies such as Subrahmanyam for Sale, Supreme, and Chitra Lahari. Sai Dharam Tej's latest movie, Virupaksha, is set to hit the screens on April 21st. Varun Tej As the son of Mega Brother Nagababu, Varun Tej made his entry into the film industry. With his debut film 'Mukunda,' Tej captivated everyone's attention. His films 'Kanche,' 'Antariksham,' 'Tholi Prema,' and 'Fida' became successful at the box office. Currently, Tej is acting in VT13 and 'Gandivdhari Arjuna’ films.   Panja Vaishnav Tej Panja Vaishnav Tej, another nephew of Chiranjeevi, also made his way into the industry. He achieved great success with his debut film 'Uppena.' His subsequent film 'Konda Polam' received critical acclaim as well. However, his recent film 'Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga' failed to impress Telugu audiences. Allu Sirish As Chiranjeevi's nephew and Allu Arjun's younger brother, Allu Sirish stepped into the film world. Sirish, who made his debut with 'Gouravam,' managed to win audiences over with films like 'Okka Kshanam,' 'ABCD,' and 'Kotha Janta.' His film 'Srirastu Subhamastu' was well-received by family audiences, but his latest movie 'Urvasivo Rakshasivo' fell flat at the box office. Kalyaan Dhev Chiranjeevi's son-in-law and Sreeja's husband, Kalyaan Dhev, also tried his luck as a hero. With the film 'Vijetha,' Kalyaan Dhev made his first appearance in Telugu cinema but failed to make a mark. His subsequent films 'Super Machi' and 'Kinnerasani' also failed to captivate Telugu audiences.

    Top 10 Telugu Debut Directors: These directors earned star status with their very first film!
    Establishing oneself as a director in the Telugu industry is no easy feat. It takes years of hard work and dedication. While some gain recognition after directing four or five films, others might need up to ten movies to make their mark. However, some directors have managed to attract the industry's attention with their debut films, earning a prominent name for themselves right from their first movie. They have joined the ranks of top directors in Tollywood. Let's now take a look at these directors who have made a name for themselves as the best debut directors in Tollywood: Srikant Odela Currently, Srikant Odela's name is spreading like wildfire in Tollywood. With his first film 'Dasara', Srikant joined the Rs.100 crore club and made a grand entrance into the industry as a director. Viewers are praising Srikant's direction in 'Dasara' for its impressive action and emotional scenes. Srikant, who previously worked as an assistant director for Sukumar, played a key role in the success of movies like 'Nannaku Prematho' and 'Rangasthalam'. Venu Yeldandi  Venu Yeldandi gained recognition as a great director with his film Balgam. Though it started as a small film, ‘Balgam’' won awards at the international level. Venu's direction skills were highly appreciated for portraying Telangana's culture, rural life, and love story beautifully. The fact that people in every village of Telangana are watching the movie with great interest shows the admiration '‘Balgam’'  has received. Buchi Babu Sana Director Buchi Babu Sana also attracted everyone's attention with his debut film. He made a grand entry into Tollywood with the movie 'Uppena'. Despite having newcomers like Panja Vaishnav Tej as the hero and Krithi Shetty as the heroine, Buchi Babu managed to make the film a success with his directing skills. He presented a pure love story to the Telugu audience. With the super hit success of 'Uppena', Buchi Babu's talent in the industry has been recognized. Sandeep Vanga With the film Arjun Reddy, Vijay Deverakonda became an overnight star. Sandeep Vanga, who directed the movie, also received immense praise for his work. When the promotional posters and trailer for Arjun Reddy were released, there was a huge controversy. However, after the film's release, the situation changed as a large number of young people connected with the movie. The film is a trendsetter movie. Sandeep is currently working on a film Ranbir Kapoor in Hindi After completing this he may start a film with Allu Arjun Anil Ravipudi Director Anil Ravipudi's first film 'Pataas' achieved great success. The film became a significant hit in hero Kalyan Ram's career. With this film, Anil gained recognition as a comedy director.

Sujeeth Director Sujeeth made a grand entry into Tollywood with the film Run Raja Run. The film was a super hit at the time. Audiences connected well with the unique concept of the movie. Sujeeth won an award for Best Debut Director for this film. However, the Prabhas starrer movie Saaho, directed by Sujeeth, was a massive failure at the box office. Sujeeth is currently working on a film with Pawan Kalyan. Tharun Bhascker Tharun Bhascker gained recognition as a talented director with the film Pellichoopulu. This romantic entertainer became a box-office success. Tharun Bhascker won the SIIMA Awards 2016 for the film. He received the award for Best Debut Director.

    Rajamouli vs Sukumar: Sukumar's Upper Hand in This Aspect Leaves Rajamouli Behind!
    Rajamouli vs Sukumar: Sukumar's Upper Hand in This Aspect Leaves Rajamouli Behind!
    When it comes to top directors in Tollywood, visionary filmmaker Rajamouli comes to mind first. Through the film RRR, Rajamouli elevated the Telugu film industry's reputation to Oscar-level fame. However, Rajamouli failed in one aspect: transforming his assistant directors into top directors. In this regard, director Sukumar has achieved immense success. Several directors who learned under Sukumar have demonstrated their prowess through hit films. Let's now see who these directors are. Sukumar's Assistant Directors Srikanth Odela Srikanth Odela is currently making waves in Tollywood. With his debut film, Srikanth shattered box office records. His film 'Dasara' starring Nani entered the 100-crore club. Before this film, Srikanth worked as an assistant director under Sukumar. He contributed significantly to the success of the films Nannaku Prematho and Rangasthalam. Sukumar once mentioned that Rangasthalam wouldn't have been such a great success without Srikanth Odela, which speaks to the director's talent. https://telugu.yousay.tv/en/a-story-of-passion-and-patience-srikanth-odelas-four-year-journey-to-work-with-sukumar-and-direct-dasara.html Buchi Babu Sana Buchi Babu is another individual who began as Sukumar's assistant director and later became a successful director. With his first film, Uppena, Buchi Babu created a sensation. He skillfully applied the lessons taught by Sukumar and showed his mark with his very first film. He presented debut hero Vaishnav Tej and heroine Krithi Shetty beautifully on screen. Uppena's massive success led to Buchi Babu getting the chance to direct a film with Ram Charan. Ram Charan himself announced that Buchi Babu would direct his 16th film. Palnati Surya Pratap Emerging from Sukumar's directorial school, Palnati Surya Pratap also managed to secure a significant hit with his debut film. He demonstrated his talent through the film "Kumari 21F". Recently, Surya directed the movie "18 Pages" starring hero Nikhil and heroine Anupama. This classic love story has garnered a good buzz. Surya also worked as a screenwriter for Sukumar's films such as "1: Nenokkadine", "Rangasthalam", and "Pushpa". Rajamouli's Assistant Directors: G.R. Krishna Tollywood director G.R. Krishna initially worked as an assistant director under Rajamouli. He played a vital role in the success of the film "Simhadri". Krishna was introduced as a director with the movie "Aadu Magadra Bujji", but he couldn't achieve success in the expected range. His subsequent film "Iddari Lokam Okate" also failed at the box office. Since 2019, Krishna hasn't been able to helm another film in Tollywood. Karuna Kumar Another Tollywood director, Karuna Kumar, also learned filmmaking under Rajamouli. He went on to direct several films but couldn't make a mark. His debut film "Palasa" received positive talk but failed at the box office. Later, movies like "Metro Kathalu", "Sridevi Soda Center", and "Kalapuram" failed to impress the audience. Ashwin Gangaraju Director Ashwin Gangaraju also worked as an assistant director under Rajamouli. He played a crucial role in the success of "Baahubali-1" and "Baahubali-2". In 2021, Ashwin made his directorial debut with the film "Aakashavaani", but the movie did not perform well. Rajamouli's Heroes and their Flops...! Not only Rajamouli's protégés but also the heroes who have worked with him in movies seem to experience failure in their subsequent films, which is quite surprising. Jr. NTR Rajamouli made his first film 'Student No.1' with Jr. NTR, which became a super hit. However, Jr. NTR's next film 'Subbu' flopped. Rajamouli then made 'Simhadri' with Jr. NTR, which was another massive hit. But after that, Jr. NTR's 'Andhrawala' failed at the box office. Rajamouli directed the film 'Yamadonga' with Jr. NTR, and then his next film 'Kantri' turned out to be a disaster. Prabhas In 2005, Rajamouli made the movie 'Chatrapathi' with Prabhas, which was a huge hit. However, Prabhas' next film 'Pournami' was a flop and left him disappointed. After 'Chatrapathi', Rajamouli made 'Baahubali' and 'Baahubali 2' with Prabhas, which elevated Tollywood's range and made Prabhas a pan-India star. Unfortunately, Prabhas' subsequent films 'Saaho' and 'Radhe Shyam' received flop talk. Ram Charan Before 'RRR', Rajamouli made the movie 'Magadheera' with Ram Charan. Released in 2009, the film shook the silver screen. However, Ram Charan's 2010 film 'Orange' was a major failure. Sunil, who worked with Rajamouli on 'Maryada Ramanna', also faced difficulties finding success after that film. Similarly, Nani experienced a flop after Rajamouli's film 'Eega'. Nani and Samantha's film 'Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu' also failed at the box office."

    The Future of Telugu Cinema: Directors Who Could Rival S.S.Rajamouli's Success
    The Future of Telugu Cinema: Directors Who Could Rival S.S.Rajamouli's Success
    Among India's esteemed directors, S.S. Rajamouli is distinguished by his unbroken streak of success. With films like 'RRR,' he has propelled Telugu cinema to international prominence and is currently poised to penetrate the global market with 'SSMB29,' starring Mahesh Babu. However, there are ongoing discussions among North Indian audiences about whether any Telugu directors can match Rajamouli's achievements. In response, we are giving several dynamic directors making their mark who can impact the Indian box office in a manner akin to Rajamouli. Who are these directors? Let's explore. Nag Ashwin Currently, one of the most talked-about directors in Tollywood is Nag Ashwin. His upcoming film 'Kalki 2898 AD' featuring Prabhas is creating buzz at a global level. This science fiction movie, inspired by Indian mythology, is set to release worldwide on June 27. Film analysts believe that if this movie succeeds, there will be no turning back for Nag Ashwin's career. This film has the potential to elevate Tollywood to a new level and could bring immense fame to Nag Ashwin. His vision, execution, and unique promotions remind one of Rajamouli’s style. Director Rajamouli consistently sets the standard in incorporating technology into cinema, known for world-class graphics, inventive weaponry, distinctive costumes, and extraordinary hero portrayals. Director Nag Ashwin, in a similar vein, channels Rajamouli’s innovative spirit by leveraging cutting-edge technology for 'Kalki'. The film features a specially designed vehicle named 'Bujji', used by Prabhas for his on-screen adventures. On Wednesday (May 22), a special preview of 'Bujji' was released, rapidly gaining popularity on YouTube. https://twitter.com/i/status/1793606030703927405 The 'Bujji' special vehicle was developed in collaboration with Mahindra company, costing around 7 crores. Normally, it takes five to ten years to develop a new vehicle, but director Nag Ashwin has integrated the Mahindra team into the film to direct them according to his vision. He stated in the 'Bujji' glimpse release event that this vehicle plays an important role in the movie. He thanked the Mahindra team for their cooperation in creating the vehicle. https://twitter.com/i/status/1793303611583418579 Sukumar Before "Pushpa: The Rise," Sukumar was primarily recognized within Tollywood, but the film's success catapulted him to a pan-India directorial status. His direction in "Pushpa" left a strong impression, especially his transformation of the stylish Allu Arjun into a rugged character with untidy hair and a beard, perfectly matching the role's demands. Unlike Rajamouli, who is known for emphasizing the interval and climax scenes with intense action, Sukumar adopted a unique approach in "Pushpa." He designed these key scenes without violence, thereby intensifying anticipation for the second half. In the climax, Pushpa's confrontation with SP Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat (Fahadh Faasil) set the stage intriguingly for the upcoming sequel. Everyone is waiting eagerly for the sequel 'Pushpa 2: The Rule', set to release on August 15. The makers have already started promotions. If this movie is successful, Sukumar’s stature is expected to rise significantly. He has also announced that his next film will star Ram Charan. Rumors are that 'Pushpa 3' is also in the pipeline, suggesting that Sukumar could reach Rajamouli's level of popularity in the next 2-3 years. Sandeep Reddy Vanga Tollywood sensation director Sandeep Reddy Vanga has proven his mettle with the movie 'Animal'. He has earned a unique recognition by making films with different concepts and has changed the style of cinema making, similar to Rajamouli. He is currently preparing to shoot his next film with Prabhas, titled 'Spirit'. In 'Spirit', Prabhas will appear as a police officer for the first time, and his character is expected to be very powerful. A poster related to Prabhas’s character has already been released, showing him in a different style of police uniform, reminiscent of an international cop look. Sandeep has promised that 'Spirit' will feature even stronger content than 'Animal', and he is confident that the movie will collect 150 crores on the first day alone, reaching 1500 crores in collections within a week if it receives positive reviews. Following 'Spirit', Sandeep Reddy is set to direct with Ranbir Kapoor in 'Animal 2'. If these two films are successful, film analysts believe that Sandeep could achieve a level of fame comparable to Rajamouli. Prasanth Varma Young director Prasanth Varma has made a nationwide impact with his film 'HanuMan'. Achieving star director status with just his third movie, 'HanuMan' has become this year's highest-grossing film, collecting over Rs. 350 crores and surpassing expectations at the box office. Prasanth Varma is now developing 'Hanuman 2' and is rumored to be directing a period film featuring Bollywood star Ranveer Singh. Success in these two projects could elevate Prasanth Varma's reputation to a national level. Prashanth Neel Kannada director Prashanth Neel has achieved solid success with 'Salaar,' featuring Tollywood star Prabhas. His directing style has greatly impressed even Rajamouli. Prashanth Neel has captivated everyone by providing elevations that match Prabhas' on-screen persona, presenting him as a strong personality in 'Salaar.' He designed the interval sequence wonderfully, reminiscent of Rajamouli’s style. Every appearance of Prabhas on screen sent chills down the fans' spines. Currently, Prashanth Neel is fully dedicated to 'Salaar: Part 2 - Shouryanga Parvam'. Success with this film could establish him as one of the top directors nationally. He is also preparing for 'NTR31' with Tarak, expected to start production soon, and the production company has announced that 'KGF 3' is underway. If these three projects are successful, Prashanth Neel’s fame could rival that of Rajamouli. Koratala Siva Koratala Siva, a noted director in Tollywood, has seen substantial box office success with all his films except 'Acharya'. He is now directing a pan-India film titled 'Devara' featuring Tarak, set against a coastal backdrop and generating significant buzz. The film, which includes Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan and music by Anirudh, will release in two parts, the first on October 10. The promotional materials, including a thrilling scene of Tarak with a sword, have heightened expectations. Success with 'Devara' could elevate Koratala Siva to national prominence. If both parts succeed, he could become one of the country's most prominent directors. Sujeeth Sujeeth, recognized for his stylish direction, possesses skills akin to Hollywood filmmakers and is often compared to S.S. Rajamouli. Following 'Baahubali,' he directed Prabhas in 'Saaho.' Despite the film not meeting box office expectations, audiences appreciated Sujeeth’s direction, screenplay, and innovative approach, especially his execution of action scenes. He showcased Prabhas in a notably stylish role. At that time, it was said that Sujeeth would not need to look back if he could achieve a significant hit. Currently, he is directing 'OG' with Pawan Kalyan, anticipated as a pan-India release. Early glimpses have already excited Pawan's fans, where he portrays a gangster. If 'OG' succeeds, it is believed that Sujeeth's career could soar, with some analysts suggesting that two major hits might propel him to a status comparable to Rajamouli's. Buchi Babu Buchi Babu is one of the few directors who achieved a solid hit with their debut film. With 'Uppena,' he introduced a pure love story to the audience, proving his significant talent to the industry. He has now risen to a level where he is set to direct his next film with Tollywood star Ram Charan. This upcoming film, a sports drama, will also be released at a pan-India level. Analysts believe that if Buchi Babu's talent combines well with Ram Charan's star power, the film is sure to succeed. They also opine that his name will become well-known at a national level if this project succeeds.
