Tollywood’s dream couple Chay-Sam announce separation; Nagarjuna reacts with sweet note

1

Star couple and Internet favourites Samantha Ruth Prabhu Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya, son of Telugu superstar Nagarjuna, have ended weeks of speculation and announced their separation after four years of marriage.

The couple, popularly known as Chay-Sam, confirmed the news in an official statement from Naga Chaitanya, shared by Samantha, which they released on Saturday. They requested their fans and media to allow them privacy.

Nagarjuna reacted to the development with a sweet parting note. Taking to social media, the superstar said: “With a heavy heart let me say this! Whatever happened between Sam and Chay is very unfortunate. What happens between a wife and husband is very personal. Sam and Chay are both dear to me. My family will always cherish the moments spent with Sam and she will always be dear to us. May God bless them both.”

Earlier in the day, in a statement addressed to “our well-wishers”, Chaitanya said: “After much deliberation and thought, Sam and I have decided to part ways as husband and wife to pursue our own paths. We are fortunate to have a friendship of over a decade that was the very core of our relationship which we believe will always hold a special bond between us.”

The couple were first seen together in Gautham Menon’s iconic 2010 Telugu movie, ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’.

Chaitanya added in the shared statement: “We request our fans, well-wishers and the media to support us during this difficult time and give us the privacy we need to move on. Thanking you for your support.”

The buzz about the marriage disintegrating had intensified last month after Samantha dropped ‘Akkineni’ from her name on her Twitter account, but neither addressed the rumours head-on. Samantha and Naga Chaitanya got married in Goa in 2017.

It was King Nagarjuna who loved the script and approved Akhil Akkineni’s upcoming movie Agent. The transformation of Akhil for the film left many amazed. The shoot of the film commenced yesterday and Surendar Reddy is canning some crucial episodes on Akhil. Malayalam actor Mammootty will be seen in an important role and he will be seen as Akhil’s father and mentor in this stylish action entertainer. After listening to the script, Nag was very impressed with this role and wanted to play Mammootty’s assignment in Agent.

But the film’s director Surendar Reddy convinced Nag and finalized Mammootty for the powerful role. Surendar Reddy explained that the expectations will reach skies if Nag plays the role in Agent. He also explained that the film will be seen as Nag’s film by the audience and not as Akhil’s project. Convinced with the logic, Nag decided to stay away from the project.

Nagarjuna’s ‘Wild Dog’ Movie Review

Wild Dog Movie Review

Wild Dog Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating: 2.75/5

King Nagarjuna needs a hit as he is surrounded by a series of flops. The actor loved the concept of Wild Dog and gave his immediate nod. Talented writer Solomon is returning back to direction after a while with Wild Dog. Nagarjuna, Dia Mirza, Atul Kulkarni. Saiyami Kher, Ali Reza played the lead roles in this action entertainer that is all about the ISI attacks on Pune and Hyderabad. Niranjan Reddy’s Matinee Entertainments are the producers. Wild Dog is releasing today and here is the complete review of Wild Dog:

Story:

Wild Dog is the story of Vijay Varma (Nagarjuna) who is a ruthless cop and leads NIA Special Team. He gets shattered with the demise of his daughter in a bomb blast in Hyderabad. After staying away from NIA for years, he gets a call from the Indian government to lead the team on a mission to nab the masterminds in the blast’s case. Vijay Varma who is popularly called Wild Dog leads the team to catch Khalid, the key accused in the case. Watch Wild Dog to know about their special mission which makes Vijay Varma and his team proud.

Analysis:

After the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic, the Indian and Telugu audience watched hundreds of shows, web films on terrorism and action. Wild Dog has nothing new and interesting to offer right from the plot to the narration. Wild Dog is neither racy nor completely dull. It has some good moments but the narration is never gripping. Nagarjuna shines as Vijay Varma but this alone cannot drive the film. The first half of Wild Dog is ok to watch but the audience will have their own complaints. Some of the episodes are silly.

The process of investigation looks outdated and it has nothing new. With many modern techniques being adapted, the team relies on a sketch artist to find the face of the criminal and the hunt to find the name of the main accused is so long. The team of NIA are just a step away from nabbing Khalid but he misses without any trace most of the time. This will surely disappoint the audience. Team Wild Dog finally lands in Nepal and those episodes too are not worth watching. The climax portions too are so simple and remind us about several Bollywood films.

Performances:

Nagarjuna shines in the role of Vijay Varma who plays a honest NIA cop in the film. The role looks perfect for his age and he looks natural with a scar and grey hair. Dia Mirza has couple of scenes as Vijay Varma’s wife. Atul Kulkarni gets a tailor made role as a cop who struggles to convince the government against the odds. Saiyami Kher gets a challenging role and she a full length role in the second half of Wild Dog. Ali Reza and the team of Wild Dog did their part well. All the other actors are good and did well.

Wild Dog has a simple plot and it is inspired by several crime thrillers. The screenplay should have been gripping and more intense. The dialogues are good. Thaman delivers an impressive background score and the cinematography work is apt. The production values should have been better. Solomon takes Wild Dog on a serious note but the second half of Wild Dog has enough flaws. On the whole, Wild Dog will have a limited appeal.

Verdict:

Wild Dog is a film that will have a limited appeal because of several such attempts on digital platforms in the recent times. Nagarjuna and his team are good but the second half of Wild Dog has its own flaws.
