Jodi Trailer: Content is no match to the Title


One of the most struggling heroes Tollywood has ever seen is Aadi Pudipeddi, the star kid who is trying it hard to make himself a star. The trailer of his long delayed movie ‘Jodi’ is here, which has a set of good actors but commits some primary mistakes.

The moment you hear about the title ‘Jodi’, we remember a love story that features Prashant and Simran, and also some terrific melodies that haunt music loving souls even now. After grabbing that title, including font design from the old movie, Aadi’s film is about a hero and his father who invests every penning in cricket bettings, thus creating major troubles. Oops, is this Jodi not a love story?

Going by the trailer, one would definitely say- ‘Aah contetnt enti? Aah title enti?’ as the film’s commercial nature with a beaten to death storyline sounds like another cliche. Hero working hard for the family, heroine still reeling with 90s mindset, hero’s father addicted to all bad habits, heroine’s father not accepting the hero, stylish villain saying his ego is important to him- is this not a cliche?

Aadi, come on man!!

‘Kaatteri’ will be a special Tamil debut: Aadi


Telugu actor Aadi Sai Kumar, who is set to foray into Tamil filmdom with upcoming horror thriller “Kaatteri”, says the project will be a special debut.

Best known for his work in Telugu films such as “Sukumarudu” and “Shamanthakamani”, Aadi is kicked about his Tamil debut.

“It’s going to be a special debut. Need to thank my producer Gnanavel for introducing me to Tamil audiences. He got me this offer and suggested that it’s time I venture into a new industry. I really liked the script, so I thought why not,” Aadi told IANS.

To be directed by Deekay, the project will be bankrolled by Studio Green, which is also the banner behind Aadi’s upcoming Telugu horror-comedy “Next Nuvve”.

Talking about the film, Deekay said: “This is not a horror film, though it has horror element. This is an adventurous film and it also has a fantasy touch. The film will have a period portion as well. The story will go back and forth in time, 1960s to be precise.”

On signing Aadi as the hero, he said: “His next Telugu film is the remake of my Tamil film ‘Yaamirukka Bayamey’. He was perfect for the role in this film.”

“Bigg Boss” fame Oviya has been signed on as the leading lady. Deekay has confirmed the film will have three more heroines.

Originally, we had planned for Christmas release but now I doubt if it will be able to come out on time. We have post-production and VFX work so it will take time,” Joseph told IANS.

Also starring Siddique, Sharafudheen, Siju Wilson, Anusree, Aditi Ravi and Lena, the film doesn’t feature a romantic track.

Shamanthakamani Movie Review : Needs more glitter !

Shamantakamani movie Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.5/5  

Spoiler Free Review : 

Two genres are safe bets for small and medium budget films in Tollywood currently. For past 4-5 years, the trend is that these two genres namely ‘Crime Comedy’ and ‘Horror Comedy’ [ with a dose of action] have proven to fetch minimum guaranteed revenues. Films such as ‘Swamy Ra Ra ’ ,’ Kshanam’, ‘Shankarabharanam’ (new) and ‘Keshava’ belong to the Crime Comedy category. Whereas ‘Prema kadha chitram’, ‘Rajugari Gadhi’,’ ‘Ekkadaki Potavu Chinnavada’ and ’Karthikeya’ fall under Horror Comedy.

Shamanthakamani belongs to the former. The story is woven around one crime episode and ensuing events are narrated, ultimately unfolding the mystery behind the crime.

Four individuals named Krishna (Sudheer Babu), Shiva (Sundeep Kishan), Karthik ( Aadhi) and a Car mechanic ( Rajendra Prasad) attend a party at Provotel pub located in Hyderabad city. Sudheer Babu, after the party realises that his Rolls Royce vintage car valued 5-crore rupees is stolen from the parking lot. C.I. Ranjith (Nara Rohit) investigates the case, probes the suspected attendees of the party. As the movie unfolds, Ranjith listens to each of the suspect’s (Sundeep Kishan, Aadhi and Rajendra Prasad ) version on what had happened that night. It is the Pre-climax and Climax that reveals the shocking facts and twists.

The story in this genre is thin, so the writers and the director should be able to build strong situations and characterizations to make the film engaging. Especially when the film has multiple unrelated threads (characters) which concur at certain point in the story. Director’s strengths are reflected in how well he/she can infuse entertainment and characterization in the limited scenes for each thread.

Shamanthakamani opens in an interesting fashion. The narration falls flat as it shifts to the flashback to establish the scenes which eventually lead to the main event. Sundeep Kishan as a tapori boy from Rajahmundry, Aadhi as middle class lover boy whose girl friend is an NRI from a rich family, a mechanic Rajendra prasad who falls in love with Indraja ( a vegetable seller); all three threads lead to Provotel pub to an ill-fated night filled with non-stop action. C.I Ranjith (Nara Rohith) is also part of the game unknowingly. First half ends where it has started – i.e. a vintage car has been stolen from a hotel parking lot.

As second half progress, the interrogation part is somewhat engaging. Each person involved narrates their version which matches with the evidences collected by the C.I. Climax scenes are good and different reflecting some creativity. In other words, Shamanthakamani offers something worthy only towards last scenes.

Director Sriram Adittya who also handled story, screenplay and dialogues could not do complete justice to any department. He was only moderately successful. Dialogues were pale in most of the segments.


The key strength of the film is in its cast and their performances. All youngsters did fine but Sundeep Kishan leads the pack in performance.His diction and ease in action is getting better with every movie. Sudheer Babu’s character demands portraying some sad moments which he handled well. Aadhi and Nara Rohith were fine and their roles are kind of fun oriented. Senior actors Rajendra Prasad and Suman were adequate. The two female actors Chandini Chowdary and Indraja had very limited scenes. They did decently for their part.


  • Performances of the artists
  • Better second half
  • Pre-Climax and Climax scenes
  • Sameer Reddy DOP
  • Manisharma Re-Recording


  • Poor First half
  • Comedy and Mother sentiment elements did not work out well
  • Mediocre Characterizations
  • Filler scenes could have been better

Shamanthakamani is a pretty mediocre Crime investigative film. If you are a fan of any of the four young heroes, you could watch it. Being a multi-starrer, the openings may be encouraging in domestic market. Overall, it could have been better.

Working on ‘Shamanthakamani’ competitive, fun, say its heroes

Actors Sudheer Babu, Sundeep Kishan and Aadi say working on forthcoming Telugu multi-starrer crime-thriller “Shamanthakamani” was fun and at the same time kept the competitive spirit in them alive.

Directed by Sriram Adittya, the film’s story is centered on a car and it features Sudheer, Sundeep, Aadi and Nara Rohit in the lead.

On the experience of working together with three more heroes, Aadi said all of them have equal screen space.

“It never bothered us who will have more screen space. Each character has its highs and lows and there are plenty of moments for each of us to shine. Instead of worrying about whether each of us will have ample screen space, I was more concerned about my character,” Aadi told IANS.

He wanted to be sure of whether he can do justice to his character.

“I had to be sure if it was a suitable character for me. I remember asking Sriram if this is what he wanted me to do because I wanted to be sure if I can deliver. By bringing us together, I believe we only became competitive,” he said.

Sudheer Babu says it’s a script written for the characters and not for heroes.

“When you try and place a hero in a certain character, you will find it challenging. This is a script written for the characters and not for the actors. When Sriram approached me with the script, I wanted him to choose the role that he thinks would be apt for me,” Sudheer said.

Last seen in “Baaghi”, Sudheer did initially feel apprehensive about the idea of a multi-starrer at this stage in his career.

“After ‘Bhale Manchi Roju’ and ‘Baaghi’, where I had scope to shine individually, I asked myself why a multi-starrer now. I wondered if the idea will work. But when I heard the script, I was totally blown away,” he said.

Sundeep said each of the characters has a purpose in the film.

“Each one of us knew what is expected of our character. We had a ball working together because all of us have been friends for a long time. There was absolutely no room for ego on the sets,” Sundeep said, adding the camaraderie between them was quite evident even off the sets.

Sundeep added, “All of us will gain something from this film.”

Produced by Bhavya Creations, the film is slated for release on Friday.

Chuttalabbayi Review : A Monotonous Film


Chuttalabbayi Review, Chuttalabbai Review

Telugu360 Rating 1.5/5


Babji ( Aadi) works as a loan recovery agent in Hyderabad. Money lenders utilize his services to recover overdue money from their customers. Kavya ( Namita Pramod) is the sister of ruthless ACP ( Abhimanyu Singh). She tries to run away from home to avoid marriage proposals. At one such away attempt, Kavya bumps into Babji’s life.

Thinking that the pair is in love, ACP sends his police team to attack them. Feared by police, Babji and kavya runs into forest. Interval reveals that another team too chasing the pair.

In second half, Dora (Saikumar) makes an entry as Devarakonda village head in Telangana. Babji and Kavya who were on the run seeks shelter at Dora’s home. Rest of the story deals in establishing what is the relation between Dora and Babji, how they will be rescued from Police as well as another goons’ team.


Mediocrity is the name of the game in Chuttalabbayi. There is not even a single scene where we can see a spark or novelty in the direction. The film is mainly aimed at B, C centers’ audience. Prudhvi as Ego Reddy has provided some comic relief for audience. Posani Krishna Murali has been given lengthy and tedious role as second heroine’s father. Ali as Kidnap Kish enters at pre climax stage.

Cheap dialogues in this movie are mass oriented. Sai Kumar role should have been taken care more emotionally.  Another irritating aspect is casting. Few character artistes are miserable especially the one played hero’s mother role.  This movie is not a low budgeted one, producers have spent decent budget but don’t know why the casting is such poor quality

Talented actor Aadi should focus on picking right script and technicians for his upcoming movies.


  • Aadi acted with a lot of ease and shown good skill in dances
  • Few action blocks are composed well
  • Namita Pramod looked fine in her role
  • Prudhvi comedy to some extent will be a saving grace


  • Songs are not good on screen
  • Predictable and monotonous second half
  • Comedy did not work out except for Prudhvi’s character


Chuttalabbayi has neither fresh content nor entertaining elements. The clichéd story and poor direction makes it a disappointing film. At B,C centers this film may work to some extent but rest everywhere it will be a disaster. Easily avoidable fare.

Acting with my father was surreal: Aadi


Actor Aadi has worked in a film produced by his father Sai Kumar before but with Chuttalabbayi, the duo team up for the first time as co-actors and speaking to a leading English daily about the experience, Aadi shared that the experience was “surreal”

Going into specifics, he shared, “I was both nervous and excited on the first day of shoot. But to my surprise even dad seemed nervous.”

Will Upen match Aadi’s height?


After Shankar’s I, Upen Patel made many an effort to be a part of Telugu cinema. But unfortunately sentiment rules here. It takes a while for people to register that a particular character fits into their scheme of things. Upen Patel finally bagged a movie in Aadi starrer Chuttalabbayi being directed by Veerabhadram. It is a little surprising that Upen who stands really tall at 6 feet something will be playing adversary to Aadi Saikumar who is so short. The shoot is in progress and it has Namita Pramod, a Malayali playing the female lead. Upen has been a part of BIg Boss and some other inconsequential Hindi films.
