    Megastar Chiranjeevi's name alone is enough to set his fans into a frenzy. The craze for Chiru in the Telugu states needs no new introduction. Last year, Chiru captured a great success with "Waltair Veerayya." However, his next film "Bhola Shankar" under the direction of Meher Ramesh turned out to be a disaster. Cautious from the result of this film, Chiru has chosen a socio-fantasy story for his next project. He is set to act in "Vishwambhara," directed by Vashist, who is known for "Bimbisara." The pre-production work for this film is already completed, and the shooting is scheduled to start from April. Meanwhile, there is buzzing news in the film industry about Chiranjeevi's character in this movie. Let's delve into what it is. "Vishwambhara" is being produced by the prominent production company UV Creations, with Chota K. Naidu handling the cinematography and Keeravani providing the music. Trisha has been confirmed as the heroine alongside Chiranjeevi. This marks a repeat of the crazy combo since the movie "Stalin," sparking interest among fans. Discussions are ongoing about the kind of chemistry this duo will bring to the screen. However, the talk of the industry is Chiranjeevi's character in "Vishwambhara." It's said that the movie will have a significant twist at the interval, and the second half will include a flashback.  On the other side, recently, director Vashisht made several interesting comments about this crazy project. He mentioned that the character in this movie has been designed exactly how Mega fans want to see Chiranjeevi. He hinted at a fantastic characterization along with a fantasy drama aspect. This has made Mega fans very excited to see Chiranjeevi in a crazy get-up. There are plans to release the film "Vishwambhara" during the Sankranti festival next year. Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi is specifically toning his body for the film "Vishwambhara". He is working out more to appear young, doing various exercises in the gym. A video of Chiru working out is currently going viral on the internet. Fans are amazed to see Chiru, at the age of 68, working out in the gym with such intensity. After this movie, it is known that Chiranjeevi's next film will be with star director Anil Ravipudi. This movie is said to be a complete comedy entertainer with a strong message. It is reported that Dil Raju will be producing this film.

    Ravanasura Review: The Mass Maharaja Dazzles in Villainous Shades... Another Hit After Dhamaka!
    Ravanasura Review: The Mass Maharaja Dazzles in Villainous Shades... Another Hit After Dhamaka!
    Cast: Ravi Teja, Daksh Nagarkar, Faria Abdullah, Poojitha Ponnada, Megha Akash, Anu Emmanuel, Sushant, Sampath, Murali Sharma, Ravi Ramesh Director: Sudheer Varma Writer: Srikant Vissa Music: Harshavardhan Rameshwar, Bheems Ceciroleo Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja's Ravanasura hit the theaters today (April 7) amid high expectations. After sharing the screen with Megastar Chiranjeevi in Walter Veerayya and scoring a massive hit with Dhamaka, Ravi Teja is back with Ravanasura. The film is a unique addition to the actor's filmography, featuring Ravi Teja in a role with villainous shades. The promotional posters, trailers, and teasers had already generated immense buzz around the film. So, did Ravanasura live up to the audience's expectations? Did it deliver another hit for Ravi Teja? What is the movie's story, and how did Ravi Teja's performance as a villain fare? Let's find out. Story Delving into the story of Ravanasura, Ravi Teja plays a junior lawyer named Raveendra, who works under Fariya Abdullah. When justice isn't served in the courts, he takes matters into his own hands to help the victims. In the process, heroine Megha Akash approaches Ravi Teja and Fariya Abdullah with a case involving her father, Sampath Raj, who has been accused of murder. She seeks their help to unravel the truth behind the accusations. However, a series of murders continue to occur, one after the other. Who is committing these serial killings? What is the motive behind them? What is Ravi Teja's connection to these murders, and why does his character turn villainous? That forms the crux of the film's plot. Performances Ravi Teja's performance is the highlight of this film. He manages to entertain with his comedy in the first half and impresses in a villainous role. Ravi Teja's negative role takes the movie to another level. Sushant, the young hero, gets a good role after a long time and his portrayal is relatively fresh. He impresses the audience with his acting. Heroines Faria Abdullah, Daksha Nagarkar, Anu Emmanuel, Megha Akash, and Pujita Ponnada have performed well within their boundaries. Additionally, Sampath, Murali Sharma, and Ravi Ramesh's acting is noteworthy. Technically Director Sudheer Varma has presented this movie in an amazing way. He manages to showcase Ravi Teja's trademark comedy while also delivering a thrilling experience. Sudheer has utilized Ravi Teja's acting abilities quite well. However, some scenes in the first half feel dragged. Vijay Karthik's cinematography is good, with some scenes displaying impressive camera work. The music by Harshavardhan and Bheems is pleasing, particularly the background score, which adds a plus to the movie. Production values are decent, with some scenes appearing rich. Plus Points: Ravi Teja's acting Heroines' glamour Story Background music Minus Points: The first half of the movie Stretched situations In conclusion: After "Waltair Veerayya" and "Dhamaka"  movies, Ravi Teja delivers another decent movie with "Ravanasura." If you're looking for a good time pass this weekend, "Ravanasura" is a nice choice. Rating: 3/5

    Why Are Trolls Targeting the 'Family Star'?
    Why Are Trolls Targeting the 'Family Star'?
    Vijay Deverakonda's latest movie 'Family Star' was released last Friday and received mixed reactions. Despite high expectations set by the trailer and teaser, and innovative promotions by the movie team, there was a sudden surge in trolls and negativity post-release. The film was subject to trolling on social media on a large scale, with criticisms questioning the film's quality. While some viewers insist that 'Family Star' is excellent, especially appealing to family audiences, the internet is rife with negativity. This raises the question: What is the source of this negativity? Is someone deliberately spreading negativity about this film? Let's explore in this special report. What Is the Audience Saying? Those who have seen 'Family Star' claim it's very good. Particularly, family audiences are praising the movie, confused about the reason behind the extensive trolling and negativity online. Some young viewers mentioned that 'Family Star' is not just average but a film worth watching multiple times. https://twitter.com/cult1_rowdy/status/1776852998855262234 https://twitter.com/i/status/1776636730034245707 https://twitter.com/plaasya/status/1777072948597428600 Did Vijay Know in Advance? A video of two YouTube reviewers discussing 'Family Star' is trending among Vijay's fans. In it, one reviewer mentioned that there's no hate for 'Family Star' itself but there's significant opposition towards Vijay Deverakonda. The reviewer revealed that Vijay had discussed this with producer Dil Raju, saying, "A certain batch gets ready if I do a movie. Are you prepared for it?" highlighting the existence of groups ready to target his films. This surprised even Dil Raju. The video has gone viral on social media. https://twitter.com/chanticomrade_/status/1776839226312753263 Why Target Vijay? From the beginning, Vijay Deverakonda has faced a significant amount of opposition on social media. His rapid rise to stardom, without a film background, has not gone well with some fans of other stars. Vijay's straightforward behavior, his way of promoting movies, and his candid responses in interviews have also not been well-received by everyone. There have been multiple instances of his clips being posted on social media for the purpose of trolling. Whatever the reason, every time a Vijay Deverakonda film is released, efforts are made to target it. However, this time, 'Family Star' seems to be facing not just negativity towards Vijay but also towards producer Dil Raju and director Parasuram, which is why even a well-received film is encountering such levels of trolling and negativity. Negativity Towards Dil Raju Since the last Sankranti, there has been a troll campaign against Dil Raju. He released 'Varasudu' starring Tamil star Vijay during last year's Sankranti, which some didn't like as it competed with Chiru's (Waltair Veerayya) and Balayya's (Veer Simha Reddy). Criticisms also emerged regarding 'Hanuman' this Sankranti, with claims circulating on social media that Dil Raju indirectly suggested 'Hanuman' should step back. Director Parasuram, after 'Geetha Govindam' with Vijay, was supposed to make another film with Geetha Arts. However, suddenly making 'Family Star' under Dil Raju's production also contributed to the negativity against him. The opposition towards these three individuals seems to be the reason for the extensive trolling and negativity surrounding 'Family Star', as analyzed by cine circles. Fake Reviews Certain YouTube channels and PR teams started spreading negativity from the day of the film's release, stating the film was not good and making harsh trolls. This influenced the audience and significantly impacted the movie's collections. However, in America and other countries, the film is making a substantial box office impact, collecting over 500K dollars in three days. Trolls Before Release! Trolls against 'Family Star' began even before it hit the theaters. Some targeted the movie right after the trailer release, criticizing the depiction of a middle-class family hero in rich costumes and branded shoes. During a media event, some journalists questioned this, and producer Dil Raju strongly countered, asking, "Doesn’t a hero do heroics? In real life, can we beat 20 people like in action movies? Those are blockbusters because they are movies. Why nitpick over such details?"  'Trying to Kill a Good Movie' To counter the negativity, producer Dil Raju personally interacted with the audience at a theater, asking their opinions. A video of this is currently circulating on the internet. An audience member expressed to Dil Raju that they really liked the movie and felt that there was an effort to kill even a good movie, suggesting action should be taken against those giving negative reviews. Responding, Dil Raju mentioned that in Kerala, it's ordered by the court not to give reviews for the first three days after a movie's release, suggesting something similar would benefit the industry here. "We made a good film. If you didn’t like it, say you didn’t, but don’t push your opinions onto the audience," he remarked, indicating his frustration with the practice of giving prejudiced reviews. https://telugu.yousay.tv/en/family-star-first-review-vijay-shines-as-a-middle-class-boy.html
