Telugu film "Robo" Music Review

How is it - Lifeless lyrics and beatless music...what is the use of such songs of a mass hero like rajni.

Song 1. O Maramanishi - Double voice of SP. This song is similar to many other rahman song. I feel like a school rhytme where u tell about problems and how to overcome them...kiddy. Robo...Robo...singing is little odd. OK - situational song.
Song 2. Neelo Valapu - Starting (terala) is very odd. similar to Baba duet song (baba O baba). Not suitable for Rajini.
Song 3. Inumolo O Hridayam - Both singers Rahman and Suzane Kash are good. Rehman must understand that people don't understand if u r going to give songs like Church prayers.....
Song 4. Chitti Dance Showcase - Good one (shades of Hindi film song Blue).
Song 5. Harima Harima - Composing is good. lyrics bad. (yeltuda.yeltuda - what is it?). Hariharan is good. Sadhana sargam voice is somewhat uncomfortable/odd at every takeoff(pitch).
Song 6. Kilimanjaro - I will be playing this for few times. Chinmayi is excellent specially when she sings those single words twice (khokhokho, arey nuru kotla, aaaa. yenchu..yenchukondi is sexy). Instead of Javed Ali, SP or Hariharan would be better choice for this song.
Song 7. Boom Boom Robo Ra - Single instrument played at the beginning of the song is good. (chitti chitti robo...if this was at the beginning of the would have been a good humming number for common fans). All singers are excellent. good composing. Will be repeating this song for a couple of times.

Telugu film "Don Seenu" Music Review

How is it - Perfect Ravi Teja type music. U will enjoy...

Song 1. Aidhella Vayasu - Starting itself is adurus..(onti peru seenu, inti peru don. vedu evado....) title songs      can't be better than this. enjoyed. Baba Sehgal is very good. lyrics by Rama Jhogaya Sastry is good.
Song 2. Raja Raja - This song is typically of keervani style. good melody one. Geeta Madhuri and Sri Krishna are good.
Song 3.Nayanakana - OK song.
Song 4. Aduguthundi - not good. shades of some old mani sharma songs.
Song 5. Andhamemo - lyrics is good so is the rhythmic beat. Hemachandra is good. mixture of rhythmic beat and melody mix - that's manisharma style.

This music for mass audience and well composed according to the story of the film. Manisharma, as always has given the right music in keeping in view of the hero image. Listener don't get offended by the usage of other langauges like english or hindi. That is great.

Two songs Aidhella Vayasu and Andhamemo ....listen to them

Telugu film Don Seenu trailer

Just saw "Don Seenu" trailer. a hollywood film trailer. Telugu industry is setting its standards to the heights.  This trailer is one such one.
Looks like the film would be more a comedy type than action packed. That is what Ravi Teja is best at and that is what audience expects from him.
Best of luck for the whole film unit.

komaram Puli trailer

Just saw Komaram puli trailer. Felt disappointed. Hope the film will not disappoint in the same way.

Telugu film "Komaram Puli" Songs Review

How is it - Always felt Rehman don't fit into our type of filmi music.  My Belief is right... Just waiting to see how these songs will be picturized.
Music by A R Rehman

  • First song "Power Star" is good with little bit of  Hindi film "Blue" Song Chorus and so on..but good one.
  • Second song "Amma Thale" - same like "Markandeya" song from "Nani" film. Lyrics is good and female singer Tanvi Shah has sung this song very well.
  • Third song "Maaralente" - remembers me of a song from Boys film (Maro Maro). Sad style of imitation of English songs....(Rehman is poor singer for this song!!).
  • Fourth song in this album "Maham Maye" - this is one good song; I liked this. Lot of Pronuncation problem or is it intentional to pronounce words in very typical manner. Bad.
  • Fifth song "Dochey" - Different.  After a long time, listening to voice clearly in a song..good...Shreya Ghosal rocks.
  • Last song "Namakame" - Exact copy of "O Paalanhaare" song from Hindi film "Laagan" and little bit of Rehman own tamil songs chorus combined.  But lot of changes in composition with different musical instruments and used only couple of instruments at some places.
Overall, the album is OK but how to picturized this type of songs and that to for a mass hero like Pavan Kalyan.  
Rehman has to get over his hang over for Slow music with Orchestra type composition as when composing for mass heros.

English movie "Knight and Day" Review

How is it - Nothing great; boring with little comedy.  See it only for Cameron Diaz.

Expectations will be high for a Tom Cruise movie. But this movie will let u down. Nothing new in the film either technical, acting, action or in story telling.  Watch only if u have no other option.

1. Diaz, Diaz, and Cameron Diaz. 
2. Little bit of suspense

1. Tom Cruise
2. Dull action scenes

Telugu film - Golimar

How is it - No boring at all...good Action film with little bit of romance. Go and Watch it.
Screenplay: Very good
Writing about screenplay before hero and director. Director has worked a lot on the screenplay and that shows on the screen.  It has all the integrants of a good commercial film with very tight screenplay (action, drama and little bit of romance) making the film watchable by fans as well as regular cinema goers.

Director Puri Jaganath: Back to his original style
Not everyone can make commercial films keeping the image of the hero as well as collections.  Puri from the beginning is very good in handling the hero characterization and he has done it again.  The script in his previous films like Buggigadu and Ek Niranjan was not so good and tight.  This film has good screenplay, right turns/twists, love, action with neat dailogue but missing is the comedy.  The love track between hero and herione is well directed.  There is something that director Ramgopal Varma has to learn from this film. Varma is no doubt one of the best directors in the country but when u have regular flops, then u have to fall back on formula based films for success.  Hindi film “Ab Tak Chappan” was poor at box office but with the same story, Puri made into a commercial hit.
Hero Gopi Chand: Perfect
I think this is his best performance after ‘Okkadunnadu’ and ‘Ranam’.  He is perfect for this role.  Acting, dresses, stunts, dailogues and dances are all picture perfect.

Herione Priyamani: Good
Jolly type of role.  Done well but has to take care of hair styles which covers her whole face.  Over weight...Yes.

Roja is perfect.  Her dialogues are really good.  Would like to see her in more films.
Nazar: thought small role... good

M S Narayana: Super O Super
He is superb in this film so are his dialogues.  His role brings little bit of enjoyment (typically Puris) in a very serious movie.

Music by Chakri:
Disappointed. Leaving one melody songs in the second half which reminds me of a song from "Nennethe" film.  Chakri voice is also growing like his body size.  First song’s lyrics are good. 

Photography – Shyam K Naidu: Excellent
I think first song in the film is shot with some type of “Sepia” color or something like that but looks different.  In last song, lighting effects in the background (using very thick colors) is good.  But the best Picturization is the slow song where “Close shots with Wide angles” are really really excellent (taking this type of shots is really difficult). I think I will be watching this song many more times to learn few things about photography.  Excellent work, Shyam K Naidu.

Most enjoyable part of the movie: Dailogues between Gopichand and M S Narayana
At the beginning of the film, communication between Gopichand, M S Narayana and all the sequences before Gopichand becomes police is really enjoyable.
