Kotha Bangaru Lokam Copied Scenes
G.Ramprasad, who earlier directed films like Chirunavvutho, Kalyanaramudu will direct a film with Rajasekhar and Bhumika in the lead. Entire film will be wrapped up in four schedules that will be wrapped up by December. Ramana Gogula will compose music. Vijay Chander, chalapati Rao, Ahuti Prasad, Devaraj, Raghubabu, Benarjee, Dhandapani, Brahmanandam, Venu Madhav and others are in the cast. Arunkumar will handle camera. Kona venkat for dialogs, Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao for editing and Raju for art are confirmed in crew.
Rajasekhar's Evadaithey Nakenti was also based on a Malayalam film Lion; Gorintaku was the remake of a Kannada movie Anna Thangi. His current film, Satyameva Jayathe, is a remake of the Hindi film Khakee. It seems that the action star is determined to do more remakes in future.
"We are doing the remake of the Malayalam film Hello since it’s a nice blend of strong theme and entertainment,” disclosed Jeevitha, wife of Rajasekhar. It has become a trend in Tollywood to remake hit movies from other regional languages and Jeevitha claimed that remakes are a wise option. "We consciously wanted a family entertainer after an anger-driven cop story," she added.
Story of Mohan Lal's hello:
Hello is a clean family entertainer, portraying the story of a lazy criminal lawyer, Sivaraman (Mohanlal), whose main weakness is spending more time drinking in bars rather than appearing in court. Handy (Jagathy) brings Sivaraman home on most days, bailing him out of difficult situations.
One day, he has a drunken fight with three rowdies who are wanted by the police: Vadakancherry Vakkan (Spadikam George), Pattambi Ravi (Kireekadan Jose), and Batherry Bapu (Bheeman Reghu). Interestingly, they become his bodyguards, ready to do anything for him.
Sivaraman has a long flashback, which reveals the circumstances that made him an alcoholic. In his early days, he loved a girl, Priya (Samvrutha). But Priya was brutally murdered on the very day of their elopement by his parents who strongly opposed Sivaraman's relationship with her. Sivaraman is now on his revenge against his family, by drinking, thus giving pain to his parents, who are now regretting the incident.
There comes a twist in the life of Shivaraman when he gets a phone call from Parvathy, a rich Marwadi heiress, who pleads with him to save her life as she is kidnapped by some criminals with the help of her family members who are trying toeliminate her to possess her wealth. What happens next forms the rest of the plot.
Trisha is reported to have bagged a role in Kamal Haasan's next film Marmayogi, to be produced by the legend himself, in association with Pyramid Saimira. Expected to be the costliest ever movie in South, it is being planned with a 125 crore budget. Kamal Haasan himself will be directing this film. He had earlier directed films like Hey Raam and Virumandi.
Right now this reigning queen of South Indian filmdom is doing King, opposite Nagarjuna in which she plays the role of a singer. She was all set to do two more flicks; one opposite Venkatesh in Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum to be directed by Krish and the other, Ravi Teja’s next film to be directed by Surendar Reddy. But now, it seems she has backed out of these two plum projects. Why? Because she had to give bulk dates of around 200 days for Kamal’s dream project, meaning she will have no time for any other project. As a result, her presence in Telugu films will be quite low in the near future.
Though she was upset that she had to decline the Telugu movie offers, the role in Marmayogi will be the role of a lifetime for this petite dream queen of Kollywood. Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikalam, Abhiyum Naanum and Sarvam are the three Tamil movies on hand that Trisha has to wrap up before starting Marmayogi.
Trisha’s dream of working with Kamal Haasan, her favourite actor, has come true.
It seems Trisha loves singing and sings very well too, but is extremely shy about performing in front of an audience. She is a great fan of A.R. Rahman. Sources said that Trisha is going to sing for A.R. Rehman.
Nagarjuna aka Nag is one of the most stylish, glamorous and flamboyant stars to have ever graced the silver screen. He is respected for his professional approach to his acting career. He has a great eye for talent and has the credit of identifying and introducing new talent to the film industry.
He is going to celebrate his birthday with the unit members of his latest flick King. His birthday bash is going to be held at Taj Krishna, Hyderabad. It is also being said that the team of King movie is also going to hold a press meet in the function to explain their movie’s details and shooting progress.
King movie is in the process of shooting and the shooting is going on in Hyderabad. Nagarjuna and Trisha are playing the lead roles and Sreenu Vytla is directing it.

HOMAM is an action packed entertainer which is scraped from the Hollywood movie ‘The Departed’. The script has been treated differently and some new life is added to the old story.
The story begins with the initiative of two different young men with dissimilar frame of minds. Mallikarajun (Jagapathi Babu) has a dream to become a police officer and another person named Chandrashekar (JD Chakravarthy) is against the police and their autocracies.
Malli has a background that he is a son of a unlawful person. So while he is taking training for the selection into police department, this truth is witnessed by the officers and he looses the spot to get selected into the police department. The reason for Chandu’s hatred against the police is due to the point that hi father is killed in an encounter by the cops.
Seeing the fire to become the police cop in the eyes of Malli, Vishwanatham (Pradeep rawat) appoints him as a police cop working under cover after giving him the necessary training.
Chandu is groomed well by Jawahar alias daddy (Mahesh Manjrekar) and is sent into the police department as an informer to the criminals. Since he hates the police department, Jawahar makes him a pawn of criminals in the disguise of a cop.
Meanwhile, Malli is assigned a duty to trace out the criminals in Jawahar’s gang and he joins them as a member of the gang.
Malli sincerely does his duty and informs the cops about Jawahar and his moments. This is discovered by jawahar and the hunt to outline out the offender in the gang starts.
The love track runs simultaneously for Malli as Dr. Lakshmi (Mamta) and a pretty girl Satya (Madhurima) fall for the two heroes.
Who ends whom? And what happens to the two heroes is the conclusion which has to be seen on the big screen.
Jagapathi as an action packed hero does his best to suit the role. His rough looks on his face are apt for his role and his punching dialogue delivery captures the minds of the audience.
JD eases into his role and acts naturally as a cop and also as an informer to the criminals.
Mamta Mohan Das is limited to the songs and a scene. Her rain song with Jagapathi is worth appraisable as her body beauty is well capitalized in the song. She looks awesome in a blue sari.
Madhurima gets a petite role and is like a glam doll to JD.
Pradeep Rawat has done his cop role very well. His villainous character till date in the Telugu films was choked with the strict officer role in this film.
Mahesh Manjrekar gives his 100% to the film.
The comedy track lead by MS and Bhagwan is not up to the mark. It manages to raise some tickles.
Sakshi Sivanand is seen in an items song. It is noteworthy that mass audience will peep into the theatres only for Mamta’s skin show and Sakshi’s latkas and Jhatkas.
The film ends on a happy note as Jagapathi is appointed to work as an under cover cop in Pakistan to nab dreaded criminal Dawood Ibrahim.
The film is a total lift from the Hollywood blockbuster 'The Departed' and though this cannot be compared to the original since it is miles away in terms of performance and presentation, the film has made a good attempt. While the first half goes at full speed not leaving an inch of space to breathe, it is the second half when the momentum goes down suddenly and sentiment angle pours in which has spoiled the rhythm. The screenplay will not be understood by the audience if they miss out a scene or two. There is nothing for the mass audience in this so commercially it will not be a major success but technically a well made film and will definitely make profits out of this venture for its new approach.
