The Glimpse of Tollywood 2011

Earlier the definition of the Telugu Cinema means an introductory song on our hero,routine story in a way biased to same stories,Crappy action sequences.In simple words old tamarind pickle type of story.But people are changing now.Those days are gone(Not completely but to some extent) Now a day’s director’s are getting the exact pulse of an average Telugu cinema lover.

Just sharing the funny scene from movie 'Neninthe 'depicting how the director was earlier(Doesn't resemble anybody but purely meant for laughs)

This year we have seen some exemplary movies which reflected it’s sun rays to give more foundation in a flamboyant and grandiose way to fuel the life of Telugu cinema.
Following are some movies which defined its mark

2.Bapu’s mythological flick  Sri Rama Rajyam
4.Ala Modalindi
5.100 % Love
6.Oh My Friend
Movies in Good Category                         Above Average
1.Dookudu                                                    1.Mr Perfect
2.Oosaravelli                                                2.Mirapakay
3.Pilla Zamindar                                         3.TeenMaar
4.Solo                                                               4.Panjaa
6.Golconda High School
Coming to Dubbed Movies
Through out the year out of  223 movies which got released,115 were dubbed movies and the remaining (i.e 108) are Telugu Movies.

Some of the worth watching  movies which are impressive are:
Rangam,Journey,Nanna,7thSense,VaduVeedu,Kanchana,Naa Peru Siva(Naan Mahan Allah),
The Dirty Picture,Gambler(Mangatha),Don2 etc.

Every dubbed movie which got released has its own style and mark.Movie lovers are expecting the movies which are different in terms of making,story and presentation. Atleast that’s good that  our movie makers are coming up with some different way to view and entertain the audience now a days.

And some disasters too
We experienced some disaster flicks which proved that movie buffs are not expecting the same old wine in the new bottle kind of movies.Movies shouldn’t be released just to break the records of the existing blockbusters or just to fill your pockets by bringing semi masalaflicks.
To example a few take a look on movies like Badrinath,Shakthi,PVC,Dhada,Veera etc.

To boil down
This is it.Telugu Cinema tasted both Successes and failures in the year 2011.Cinema lovers are accepting the movies if they are good irrespective of language ,cast and crew.Now it’s movie maker’s turn to ponder and come up with movies which are entertaining , inspirational ,artistic and beneficiary to society.
      Letz hope the year 2012 will be more profitable and successful than 2011.

N.B - The movies enlisted above are purely based on my view.Hope nobody hurts or feels based on my view.

The Plot
Jay(Pawan) is a hancho dude who plays two shades,towards bad boy side is kind of right hand to to the local kingpin of kolkata bhagwan(Jackie Shroff).The Good boy image on the other side  maintains the horticulture,where he meets our heroine Sandhya(Sarah Jane).Some  unfortunate circumstances leads to ruckus between Jay and Bhagwan.So how Pavan shows his panjaa is rest of the story.

How did the cast exploited?
Power star performed meticulously terrific.New face of tollywood Sarah Jane acted with easy as a bubbly gal socialistic to the society.Chotu(Ali) and Paparayudu(bhramanandam)  shared some laughing movements with Pawan Kalyan .Atul Kulkarni,Jackie ,Adivi seshu and others done well.

Director's part
Vishnu vardhan showed Pawan and movie in the stylish way.The story is routine kind of  but flaws can be identified in most of the scenes.Vishnu took the routine story in different way but he should have used more in proper phase of implementation.
Everybody given the justification in terms of acting but the problem persisted in tha backend on da way like editing,fights,screenplay etc.

How about Panjaa beats?
Music by yuvan is good.Best of the best song in the order Paparayudu takes the first place bcaz of exotic energy levels of Pawan and Brahmi..
Then comes  the title song Panjaa with Pawan's rocking steps and scintillating music.
Kshanam kshanam is similar to ela ela song @Female tonic
Anukoledhuga is also ishq effectic song
Veyra Veyra is a itemish song rocked on the floors by Anjana Lavania.

Movie is gud but lost its pace at some places.Not everybody can get digested
Its not complete full meals  but  just plate meals to most of them.Cant blame flaw in players(cast) ,but can be blamed umpire and pitch(Vishnu vardhan and co) .The ball(verdict) is  in the hands of public

Score – 2.75
