Jai Lava Kusa didn’t boost Bobby’s career ?

0

Right from the day it was announced, Jai Lava Kusa has been promulgated as NTR’s career best film in terms of performance. Interestingly, director Bobby came up with a triple role for NTR and he rendered full justice as critics and audience rated his performance as tour de force.

Despite not emerging as the career best box office hit for NTR, JLK brought strong appreciation for his emotional triplet act. While NTR took most of the credit, the film hardly boosted Bobby’s career.

True that Bobby came from a box office turkey before JLK in the form of Sardar Gabbar Singh. Everyone was completely surprised after NTR, who is in the best phase of his career, okayed Bobby’s script. But, Bobby has come up with a decent script, if not great and delivered his best. However, he didn’t get much credit for his work.

There were reports that Bobby is likely to team up with a Mega hero after JLK. But, there is no official word on the project till. As of now, all star heroes are busy with their respective projects. So, the wait for Bobby is going to be a long one.

0

Mass Raja Ravi Teja is back with a bang with Raja The Great, which is racing towards the biggest grosser in his career across the Telugu states. The actor has been widely appreciated for his outstanding efforts and he is now being knocked with many interesting offers. He is all set to wrap up Touch Chesi Chudu which will release during Sankranthi 2018. Ravi Teja is all set to start the remake of Bogan next, a Tamil blockbuster featuring Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy in the lead roles.

The actor is currently in plans to walk out of the remake as he has been completely impressed with a story narrated by Bobby. Ravi Teja is keen on doing a fresh film instead of a remake and Ram Talluri who has been on board for Bogan remake will produce Ravi Teja – Bobby’s film. The talks are on and an official announcement will be out very soon.

Ravi Teja and Bobby worked for Power earlier and Bobby has been appreciated for showcasing Tarak in a completely different way in Jai Lava Kusa recently.

Will leave a mark with ‘Jai Lava Kusa’: Bobby

0

Director Bobby says he will leave a lasting impact in the commercial movie space with actor Jr NTR-starrer Telugu drama “Jai Lava Kusa”, which hit the screens on Thursday.

The film marks his maiden collaboration with Jr NTR, who plays a triple role.

“When Jr NTR came on board, he said this project will earn respect for the entire team. The other person who believed in the film even before we started shooting was composer Devi Sri Prasad, and his faith was a confidence booster. I can confidently say I’ll leave a mark in the commercial league with this project,” Bobby told IANS.

Talking about the film, which is about identical triplet brothers brought together by fate, Bobby said: “Jr NTR jumped at the opportunity when he heard the script.

In the film, the actor plays the characters Jai, Lava and Kusa. Jai has shades of grey and he speaks with a stutter.

Asked if it was challenging to make a film with a star playing triple roles, he said: “When I was writing ‘Jai Lava Kusa’, I was under tremendous pressure because I wanted to get this project made at any cost. When Jr NTR gave his nod, I breathed a sigh of relief because I knew he’d own the project and I don’t have to worry anymore,” he said.

On the experience of working with Tarak, Bobby said it was a delight to watch him work in fully glory.

“He’s someone with immense focus. Once he is done reading the script, he literally transforms into the character. He performs with so much focus and that’s why all his characters are so memorable. He believes in the script a lot,” he said.

“Irrespective of how you change a scene on the sets, he will still effortlessly mould into the character and deliver what’s required. One wrong shot meant we had to shoot the scenes involving all the three characters again. But he ensured we didn’t make any mistake,” Bobby added.

Produced by Kalyanram, the film also stars Nivetha Thomas, Raashi Khanna and Ronit Roy.

Is JLK story inspired from tamil film ‘ Varalaru ‘ ?

0

Just two days ahead of the release of ‘Jai Lava Kusa’, there is an intense debate going on social media regarding the film’s story line. While a section claims that director Bobby has come up with a brilliant idea of weaving a story around three brothers, creating an intriguing conflict among them and etching a powerfully negative character on the lines of Ravana for NTR, another section claims that the director has simply lifted the story from a Tamil film. And, the insiders in industry agree with the second section.

A Tamil film titled ‘Varalaru’ was released in 2006 and became a blockbuster. Ajith played three characters in that film. Inside talk is that Bobby lifted this film’s story, made a few changes, roped in a star as big as NTR and filmed it as ‘Jai Lava Kusa’. The promos and trailer have already given a vague idea about the story of JLK.

Now, coming to ‘Varalaru’, hero essays three characters but unlike in JLK, they are not brothers but a father and two sons. The brothers getting separated in childhood, confusing others with the help of their identical looks after reuniting are the similarities in the two films.

Father character in Varalaru is a dance master and in JLK we have theatre concept. Whereas the dance master in Varalaru has a physical disability, Jai character has stammering problem. The former becomes a don and Jai becomes a politician in JLK. These are said to be the few modifications done.

The basic story line of JLK looks similar to that of Varalaru. Will the box office result be same? That depends on the treatment and we will find it out in less than 48 hours.

Is Bobby turning a liability for NTR ?

It came as a huge surprise for many when NTR, who is going through the best phase of his career with back to back hits, gave nod to flop director Bobby. Sources close to the team claimed that Bobby convinced NTR with a never before script for Jai Lava Kusa. Even the recently released teasers and posters of the three characters played by NTR suggest that the Sardar Gabbar Singh director has something exciting in store for audience.

NTR’s impressive box office record has pulled off stunning offers for Jai Lava Kusa in both the Telugu states. But, the film’s overseas deal turned out to be a little disappointment for the producer. NTR’s last two films, Nannaku Prematho and Janatha Garage notched up $ 2 M and $ 1.8 M in US. Despite the fact that these two films performed very well in US, the theatrical rights of Jai Lava Kusa fetched only 8.5 Crores, which is only 40 percent business compared to the upcoming biggies SPYder, PK-Trivikram film and Bharat Ane Nenu.

Initially, the makers of Jai Lava Kusa quoted the overseas rights in the range of 11-12 Crores. But, distributors and exhibitors in overseas have not shown any interest as they are wary of Bobby’s poor track record. This has largely impacted the overseas deal of Jai Lava Kusa as the producer came down on the price and offered them for 8.5 Crores.

It looks like Bobby has turned out to be a liability for NTR’s market in overseas. So, we have to wait and see if Bobby can prove those apprehensions wrong and deliver a box office hit or not. The film is slated to hit the screens on September 21st.

Cover-up Acts of Jai Lava Kusa and DJ Directors

We have already reported that renowned cinematographer Muraleedharan of ‘PK’ and ‘3 Idiots’ fame has walked out of NTR’s ‘Jai Lava Kusa’ while about fifty percent of the film is yet to be canned. Although the film’s director Bobby and producer Kalyanram Nandamuri have claimed that his replacement was a pre-agreement, the reason doesn’t look convincing.

What was the need of roping in a cinematographer knowing beforehand that he wouldn’t be available until the completion of film? Some time ago, we have informed that NTR was giving priority to Muraleedharan when he and Bobby weren’t on same page regarding certain scenes. Speculations were rife ever since the shoot commenced saying that Bobby and Muraleedharan had creative differences.

Finally, after completing about half of the film, the PK cinematographer decided to walk out. He was replaced by noted Telugu cameraman Chota K Naidu. Well, this is not the first time Bobby enforced the replacement of cinematographer. For Bobby’s debut film ‘Power’, a Ravi Teja starrer, noted cameraman Arthur A Wilson was replaced by Jayanan Vincent as Bobby had allegedly developed differences with Wilson.

On the other hand, DJ director Harish Shankar’s tweet, a couple of hours after unveiling the film’s audio teaser on Monday became a talking point in film circles. He thanked film’s cinematographer, Ayananka Bose in his tweet.

“Sir ji….. @DoP_Bose thx for the follow up for the teaser I appreciate ur efforts even though ur busy in London …. missing u,” tweeted Harish Shankar.

It may be noted that Bose has recently left DJ unit to join the team of Bollywood film ‘Judwaa 2’ starring Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu. As the shoot of DJ got delayed, Bose expressed his unwillingness in completing the film’s remaining portion since he had already committed for Judwaa 2. He is currently in London canning the Varun starrer.
