Responsibilities Doubled For Adivi Sesh!

0

While hits are energy boosters for actors, they somehow increase their responsibilities in script selection and trying something different every time. Hero Adivi Sesh who delivered biggest hit with Major is in the verge of completing double hat-tricks.

With consecutive hits, the responsibilities of Adivi Sesh have been doubled. He is making sure the stories he picks will have some unique elements and will appeal to larger sections. After Hit 2, Sesh will be doing Goodhachari 2.

Sesh is one of the rarest actors to have huge success rate. The multi-faceted actor has been closely observing all the works related his movies which is the major reason for his successful career. He continued to promote Major, even after the film’s three weeks run in theatres.

Another good thing is he is not picking every thing that is coming his way. Even though it’s a Bollywood offer. He is very much particular about story of the movie and is least bothered about experience of directors.

Let’s hope, his success streak continues and will reach many heights in career!

Adivi Sesh on success of ‘Major’: ‘The goldfish is shining’

1

Before June 3, popular Telugu actor Adivi Sesh was an unknown face to the pan-India audience while cinegoers were more interested in focusing on Akshay Kumar’s ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ and Kamal Hassan’s ‘Vikram’.

Now, Adivi Sesh is ruling the hearts of many as his film ‘Major’ takes over the box office.

Apparently, the film has earned Rs 42.5 crore within five days of its release in Hindi.

In conversation with IANS, Adivi, who is brimming with the running success of ‘Major’ shares his feeling.

He told IANS: “It was a strange feeling when the film was released in Hindi because that section of our audience did not know me as an actor, I was a new chap. The film was gaining momentum and by now it is a blockbuster hit in Telugu and Tamil. But for the Hindi audience, I was the underdog, somewhere trying to find a room for myself.

“But I think the audience has given me a place in their heart. It is the fire, the passion and the inspirational story of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan that is getting discovered by the audience and growing slowly. Now, theatre owners are increasing the number of shows etc. I am happy to see the celebration of the spirit of ‘Major’.”

Since the actor tagged himself as a ‘goldfish’ on the week when his film was released alongside two megastars, Akshay Kumar and Kamal Hassan for ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ and ‘Vikram’, as they were the ‘big fish’ of the tank, he was asked if the success of ‘Major’ turned his fish into a shark?

Sesh quipped, “Well, I am not sure of being the shark but I can say that the goldfish is shining!”

The story of the film revolves around the life journey of Indian Army officer Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan who was martyred during the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The film was also written by Adivi Sesh, directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka, and produced by Sony Pictures International Productions, Mahesh Babu.

The filmmakers held multiple screenings in different cities for special groups of audiences.

While the instant reaction of the audience helped the makers to build confidence about the film, Adivi recalled one of the very special moments from one of the first screenings.

“It was two days before the release of the film when we kept a screening in Bangalore, where Uncle and Amma (referring to the parents of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan) came to watch the film for the first time. Amma came to me and said, ‘I wore this saree and this watch 23 years ago on the day of my Sandeep’s graduation. Today, I am wearing the same saree for your screening of my son…’. She had tears in her eyes and I hugged her tight, it was so emotional for me.”

“Our whole intention was to touch people’s hearts really, box office collection wasn’t our focus,” he signed off.

Adivi Sesh-starrer ‘Major’ is on the verge of hitting a significant box office milestone in the US, while also doing well in India.

Adivi Sesh, who plays the late Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan in the film, breaks down in tears as he talks about his transformation for the part.

Adivi shared a video on his social media on Tuesday, demonstrating what ‘Major’ means to him as an actor and as a person.

“After doing more research, I learned about Sandeep’s empathy, which I adapted after playing his role in this film. His entire life revolved around his concern for others,” Adivi explained.

“Did I capture the spirit of Major Sandeep? I ponder. Don’t come up!! I’ll take care of it. Only one thing is reflected in Sandeep’s final words. Those words weren’t made on the spur of the moment; they were a window into how he viewed life.”

“He noticed less fortunate people or animals being treated with kindness ahead of him. Everything else, including how he treated non-officers, came down to one thing. His compassion is admirable,” Adivi Sesh elaborated.

Adivi concludes his video on an emotional note, “It’s not about how I transformed to become Major Sandeep, it’s about how Major Sandeep transformed me”.

If we get messages, instead phone calls, saying, heard good things about the movie, it means the movie will not work out. My phone got freeze 5 times. This is 10 times bigger than any film that I’ve done so far. I’m in no mood to relax. I want to do more so that it will have wider reach. Some told me that, Major is five times bigger than my last movie Yevaru, in terms of first day collections.

We can’t quantify the emotion. The emotion is getting bigger now. When we understand Major’s spirit, we don’t stop until we reach our goal. I’m missing three people here- Major’s parents, my guru Abburi Ravi, my stylist Rekha. We’ve been getting lots messages that many youngsters are keen to join army, after watching Major.

Major Review : Emotional Tribute to Major Unnikrishnan 

Major Movie Review`

Telugu360 Rating: 3/5

After delivering a series of hit films like Kshanam, Goodachari and Evaru, Adivi Sesh is betting big with Major, a patriotic attempt that is based on the life story of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. Sashikiran Tikka directed the film and it had Saiee Manjrekar, Prakash Raj, Murali Sharma, Revathi, Shobita Dhulipala in other important roles. Sony Pictures India in association with GMB Entertainment and A Plus Movies produced Major and the film is heading for a wide release today. Here is the complete review of Major:

Story
:
 Adivi Sesh wanted to narrate the life story of Sandeep Unnikrishnan to the nation. 26/11 Mumbai attacks will stand as one of the deadliest attacks that happened to India. A group of NSG Commandos risked their lives and saved several innocent Indians in the operation. 31-year-old Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan got martyred in the attack. Sandeep (Adivi Sesh) aspires to serve the country. He shares a close bonding with his father (Prakash Raj) and mother (Revathi). They are against his thoughts of joining the Army or Navy. 

Sandeep falls in love with Isha (Saiee Manjrekar) and the duo gets married. Sandeep loves to serve the nation instead of spending time with his family. Sandeep emerges as the top Training Officer for NSG Commandos. He trains 51 NSG team which will be asked to handle the Mumbai terror attacks. Sandeep as a Training Officer will not be allowed to participate in the mission as per the protocol but he joins the team. The rest of Major is all about the battle with the terrorists and how Sandeep saves several lives in Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai.

Analysis:

Major is not only about the deadly terror attacks in Mumbai but it also narrates about the story of a brave patriot who always desired to save the country. Sandeep Unnikrishnan had his own family and life before he joined the Indian Army. The film presented his childhood days, his love story and about his interests and how he thrived to help others by standing by their side. The first half narrated the story of Sandeep Unnikrishnan and the second half was focused on the deadly 26/11 attacks. The struggle of Sandeep when he was asked about the real meaning of Soldier was well presented. The Mumbai attacks episode starts right before the interval. The first half of Major is decent and is well loaded with emotions, love story and patriotism.

The second half is all about how Sandeep and his team handles the terrorists and saved the lives of the innocents. Director Sashikiran Tikka handled the film in his own style and kept the audience engaging. The last 20 minutes of the film is the major highlight of Major. The way Sandeep kills the terrorists without the support of his team and how he gets martyred is presented well. The film ends with the speech of Prakash Raj and the episode is quite emotional. The second half of Major is thoroughly impressive.

Major is a film that is made with enough conviction without getting deviated to the major plot. The achievements of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan are narrated to the world. The emotional family drama will impress the audience. Major gets a strong backing from the technical team. The cinematography and the sound design are the major highlights of the film. The action episodes are well presented. Without preachy episodes, the director narrated the film on a simple and emotional note. 

Adivi Sesh fits well in the role of Sandeep Unnikrishnan and his hard work is visible on screen. He excelled in the emotional scenes. Prakash Raj and Revathi get prominent roles and they delivered their best. Saiee Manjrekar looked simple and decent in the role of Isha and she did her best. Shobita had a small role and she did her part well. Murali Sharma is impressive in his assignment. All the other actors did justice for their roles.

Verdict :

Major is a technically well made film which pays tribute to Major Unnikrishnan. The emotional component of the film, especially the climax, works. Adivi Sesh and director Sashikanth deliver an appreciable film.
