Never enter film industry for fashion, enter with devotion: Nageswara Rao

He was born in a farmer's family but grew up to be one of the country's acting legends. Akkineni Nageswara Rao believes one should enter films with devotion and not because it is the fashion to do so and says if you're popular, you're bound to be responsible for your actions. 
 
Never enter films for fashion: Nageswara Rao Nageshwara Rao Akkineni Nageshwara Rao Akkineni Biography Upcoming Movies Fanspeak Videos Photos View All "You always carry huge responsibility as an actor when you become popular. 
 
One should be careful about his or her actions both in films and in public life," Rao told in an interview. "Cinema is an honourable profession which gives you fame, money, laurels and popularity. Therefore, come with devotion, but never enter the industry for fashion," added the octogenarian, who made his cinematic debut as a lead actor in 1944 Telugu film Seetha Rama Jananam. 
 
 Since then, he has worked in over 200 Telugu films in a career spanning seven decades. Besides the coveted Dadasaheb Phalke Award, three of the country's four top civilian honours - the Padma Vibhushan, the Padma Bhushan and the Padma Shri - have been conferred on Rao. Known for his work in Telugu films such as Devadasu, Mayabazar, Dr. Chakravarthy and Muga Manasulu, Rao, popularly referred to as ANR, has always believed in longevity to connect with his audiences. 
 
"I was very careful from the beginning and knew that I need to focus on longevity in order to connect with audiences with every role I adorned. I was also aware of my weakness and hence it was all the more important for me to choose the right film with utmost care," he said. Rao never hesitated to play a variety of roles, such as a villager, an urban educated protagonist, a tragic hero and even a comedian, to sustain his popularity over the years.
 
 "I never wanted people to get bored of seeing me on the screen in similar roles," said Rao, who still has a fan base equivalent to that of his star son Akkineni Nagarjuna. From being a farmer's boy to India's most respected actor: How did it happen? "I dropped out of school because my family couldn't afford it. I used to help my mother at her work, but at leisure, I used to stand in front of the mirror and act. 
 
My mother noticed my interest in acting and asked my brother to introduce me to the local theatre group," he said, adding: "I can't even think of what I would have been if not an actor". Remembered for his memorable roles in films such as Sudigundaalu, Antastulu and Meghasandesam, Rao recalls Batasari and Devadasu as two films he will always be proud of. "I still consider Batasari as one of my finest performances in my career. 
 
There was only one page of dialogue in the whole picture and the role demanded maximum use of expressions," he added. Despite strong criticism, Rao acted in Devadasu, only to be catapulted to the status of Telugu cinema's first romantic hero. 
 
"Many said I wasn't suited to star in a romantic saga, but the criticism made me all the more eager to prove myself. Devadasu went on to become a classic, he said. How did he manage the competition? "There were few people in the industry when I entered at 19. 
 
It helped me because the industry was looking for a new boy as the established actors were under contract with studios," he added. Did his busy acting career keep him away from his family? "Initially, it was challenging as I got extremely busy with my career. As I learnt to include discipline into my schedules, I found ample time for my family," said Rao, who was married to Annapurna Akkineni for 62 years. 
 
She passed away in 2011. Rao has two sons and three daughters - the eldest son Venkat Akkineni is a popular producer, while the second son Nagarjuna is a renowned actor. Daughters Saroja, Susheela and Sathyavathi are settled. Rao's grandchildren Sushant, Sumanth, Naga Chaitanya are all actors while his youngest grandson Akhil is likely to soon enter films. At 88, Rao is all set to share screen space with his son and grandson in upcoming Telugu family-comedy Manam. 
 
Sharing his thoughts about the 100-year-old India cinema, he said the industry needs to become more experimental and attract global audiences.

She is currently busy shooting for three big Telugu projects - Manam with Akkineni Nagarjuna, Attarintiki Daaredhi with Pawan Kalyan and Ramayya Vasthavayya with Junior NTR.

Action 3D - Movie Review

Cast: Allari Naresh, Sudeep, Sunil, Kick Shyam, Posani, Vaibhav, Raju Sundaram, Sneha Ullal, Neelam Upadhyay, Kamna Jethmalani
Cinematography: Sarvesh Murari
Music: Bappi & Bappa Lahari
Censor Certificate: “A”
Runtime: 157 Minutes
Director: Anil Sunkara

Ever since Avatar crouched its bloated, blue, Navi on International cinema, every big film that comes out with some semblance of special effects has "3D" pasted on top of it. Even our Indian makers tried few successful 3D films like Chota Chetan, Magic Magic, Delhi Safari earlier but most of the films cheated audience in the name of “3D” by converting 2D to 3D (It was basically a 2D experience) like Ra One, Don 2, and Dangerous Ishq.

Now, Tollywood showing its vogue in making 3D films. Allari Naresh starrer Action 3D is touted to be India’s first comedy 3D film. Simultaneously made in Telugu and Tamil (titled Aasu Raja Rani Jackie Matrum Joker) languages.

A group of friends (Shyam, Allari Naresh, Vaibhav & Raju Sundaram) visit Goa for a bachelor party days before the impending wedding. The film picks up the morning after the night before where the group, with no memory of the night before, try to piece together what went on the previous night including where the missing groom is, why one of them is missing a back tooth, where they’ve acquired a baby from and why they have a live tiger in their hotel bathroom.

Allari Naresh steals the show among the gang. Vaibhav is adequate and his character runs on the same lines of Goa. Raju Sundaram is unbearable reprising the same role of Zack Galifianakis. Shyam doesn't have much of role to play in the movie. Neelam Upadhyay is appealing and she has major footage in the film than any other actress. Neelam sizzled in Nee Nadumoppulalo and Swathi muthyapu Jallulalo. Sheena Shahabadi has no role to play in this film except for dancing in a couple of songs. Sneha Ullal is unimpressive as a bar girl Sameera. Brahmanandam, Sunil and Posani comedy fail to evoke humour. Sudeep is okay as the comic bad guy. MS Narayana impresses with his Bommarilu, Dookudu and Gabbar Singh showreel.

Coming to technicalities, Anil Sunkara has taken the story of Hollywood film “Hangover 1” as an inspiration for this film. One of the reasons the Hangover stood out because of its original comedy. And Action 3D has really bad humour which doesn’t work at all. The lines are sloppy, it relies too much on physical comedy like throwing things and running around. Even after all these things you don't even bother to give pity laughs. Music by Bappa & Bappi lahari are promising, Background score failed to raise the bar.
 
Director Anil Sunkara tries to use the scenes from Goa, Hey Babyy, Dhamaal and Few Telugu Films for the comic effect as he definitely didn't have anything new to offer.

However, technically the film has been worked upon, which clearly shows and its 3D effects are well supported by its first rate Cinematography (Sarvesh Murari). But still I found the 3D scenes, which at once reach out to you, quite less than what was being expected.

With a duration of 157 minutes it’s really hard to sit through this so called comedy film. And the blame completely goes to the writer and the director who fail to deliver miserably in this much awaited film of 2013.

Verdict: Everyone really liked Hangover because it was a very funny and original film. But Action 3D turned out to be a worst possible free make of Hangover. To cut a long story short, You need guts to TOLERATE this kind of ENTERTAINMENT.. Stay Away!!

Psycho - Movie Review



Rating: 2.0/5

Ram Gopal Varma, who is famous for taking up controversial story lines, has come up with another interesting subject this time. His usual genres horror, factions and mafia are set aside this time for a Psycho movie.

The film's story and screenplay is done by Ram Gopal Varma and is directed by Kishore Bhargav. The lead actors are Nisha Kotari and Raj Shroff. Psycho - Movie Review Psycho Ram Gopal Varma Psycho Story Cast & Crew Fanspeak Videos Photos View All The story of Psycho is about Meera (Nisha Kothari), a middle Class working lady. She is a hard working lady with responsibilities at home. She would have to travel via bus to reach her office. This is where she comes across Nikhil (Raj Shroff). Nikhil starts to approach her everyday during their journey.

His disturbance in the beginning, with asking her to be friends with him, to talk to him and to come out with him for movies, becomes a torture for Meera as he starts to over do it. With this, Meera seeks help from her colleague Shekhar. Shekhar, who is a friend of city commissioner of police, seeks his assistance to deal with the issue. This results in Nikhil turning evil in return. And then the actual side of Nikhil is revealed.

What happens to Meera? Who is Nikhil? What is his story? Will Meera escape from him? Forms the rest of the story. Performance: Nisha Kotari is good at her work. She played the simple girl who gets stuck in difficult situation perfectly. Raj Shroff is too good. He has performed brilliantly as the psycho. In fact, all the characters in the film have done a good job with their actings.

Ram Gopal Verma's story is pretty good and the story telling style is uniquely RGV. The film without the disturbance of songs sets a good pace and keeps the viewer hooked. The background score too is apt for the scenes. The drawback of the film is the cinematography. RGV has over-done with the camera. In fact, in most of the scenes the camera angle and movements are disturbing to the viewers.

Screenplay could have been much better and it is obviously expected from the experienced person like RGV. The acting which was a plus point of the movie during the climax scene is disappointing. The Psycho character is taken to the extreme and RGV should have kept reins on this.

Verdit: All in all the Psycho title is apt for this movie. You can skip it if you can
