Gayatri flopped because of Piracy, laments Mohan Babu

0

Mohan Babu’s latest offering Gayatri is termed as one of the biggest disasters in recent times. Despite getting decent reviews and talk, the film quickly fizzled out at box office without any trace. While the reasons why audience have not shown interest in turning up for Manchu family’s films are obvious, Mohan Babu, who has also produced the film besides playing the lead role, has blamed piracy for the film’s box office failure.

Speaking recently to press in Hyderabad, Mohan Babu lamented that piracy menace is continuing to afflict Tollywood as it is eating away the revenues. Mohan Babu said he took a lot of strain and toiled hard for this film. He deplored that all hard work went down the drain due to piracy.

He said the pirated version of Gayatri was available in internet right from the first day. Those who resort to this menace will definitely pay to their sins, cursed Mohan Babu.

Well, Mohan Babu’s emotional outburst can be understood given that fact that the film failed to recover even the expenses despite getting decent feedback. But, attributing the entire cause for the film’s poor run to piracy alone is quite silly because other films which too got pirated and also rated very low collected better revenues than Gayatri

It is time Manchu family reinvent themselves and find a way to attract audience instead of passing the buck on piracy alone.

Embarrassment for Gayatri, fares worse than Inttelligent

0

Among the last week releases, only Varun Tej’s Tholi Prema managed to garner good talk and reviews. Mohan Babu’s Gayatri and Sai Dharam Tej’s Inttelligent failed to capture the interest of audience and registered abysmal collections.

Gayatri had a good plot on paper but the director couldn’t come up with a convincing narration. On the other hand, Inttelligent has been termed as a awfully bland product of VV Vinayak.

Critics and audience have rated Inttelligent very low compared to Gayatri. However, the collections of Gayatri are embarrassingly lesser than Inttelligent.

In Telugu states, Inttelligent fared slightly better than Gayatri. In overseas also Inttelligent collected better figures than Gayatri which is a huge embarrassment for Mohan Babu and his team.

Overseas box office : Tholi Prema pulls in strong moolah, others fail

0

Overseas Box Office

Varun Tej’s Tholi Prema led the pack of last week’s releases with a fantastic first weekend haul at the overseas box office.

The romantic entertainer garnered more than $ 600K by the end of its first weekend and heading towards the million dollar mark with ease. After taking off to a good start with decent numbers from its Thursday premiers, the film punched out strong figures on Friday and Saturday to take the total past $ 500K. With Sunday’s $ 137K, the film’s first weekend gross stands at $ 656K.

Sai Dharam Tej’s Inttelligent and Mohan Babu’s Gayatri are going to end as one the biggest disasters at the overseas box office.

Inttelligent managed to collect a meagre $ 43 K in its first weekend and failed to recover the expenses. Gayatri had an embarrassing run with a total of $ 28K by the end of first weekend.

Overseas audience have thoroughly rejected both films due to their lacklustre content.

Gayatri Live Updates

Gayatri Movie Review

Mohan babu Gayathri Review

Final Report :

Gayatri story line is Okay but suffered from poor direction. Narration that suits current days would have made a lot difference to this film.

Dr. Mohanbabu did justice to both roles Shivaji & Gayatri Patel. Manchu Vishnu as Young Shivaji has done decent job. Shriya appeared for few scenes

All in all, with its poor first half and average second half GAYATRI film may find ‘some’ traction in B C centers and among Mohanbabu Fans.

9:52 AM Good wins over evil. The End of Gayatri ( Patel ) !

9:49 AM A fight between Sivaji & Gayatri Patel in jail !

9:41 AM Melodramatic climax is in progress

9:37 AM Gayatri Story is okay in second half. Contemporary narration would have helped a lot – Now , this old school narration may find only limited audience

8:54 AM Flashback Time :

Young sivaji role is played by Manchu Vishnu. Shriya plays female lead for young sivaji.

Interval report:

Gayatri is a cliched 1980’s story with amateurish direction. First half has no high moments , hoping for better second half !

8:38 AMKnowing that his daughter ( raised separately since childhood ) is perceiving him as a drunkard , Sivaji disappoints . Interval

8:38 AM Sivaji rescues a lady ( apparently his daughter ) and a big fight scene !

8:24 AM Anchor Anasuya plays a role of a Telivision Channel Journalist

8:23 AM Sivaji ( Mohanbabu ) takes on current day politicians , including AP CM in his typical modulation

A dig at CBN :
Naaku voteyyani vaallu Nenu ichina pensions teesukovadhu , nenu vesina roads meeda tiragodhu antaadu okadu

Thaman sandwiched between three films

0

SS Thaman is one of the most busiest composers in Tollywood at present. He is working on different projects simultaneously and having a tough time in wrapping up the re-recording activities in time.

Next week, three films are set for release in a span of two days. Thaman is the composer for all these three films. After giving promising score for all three audio albums, the onus is on him to render a quality output for re-recording and final mixing.

All three films are very crucial for Thaman. So he has very little room to compromise on work quality. Sai Dharam Tej is Thaman’s close friend and he is getting the best out of his work for Inttelligent. Also, Tholi Prema’s refreshing audio album has set high expectations on Thaman’s background score for crucial episodes in the film. So, he is trying his best to meet the expectations.

Also, the makers of Mohan Babu’s Gayatri are putting pressure on Thaman to complete the remaining work in time.

Well, it is a chock-a-block working experience for the most sought after composer.

When Vishnu’s wife suggested Shriya’s name

0

Mohan Babu’s Gayatri features Manchu Vishnu and Shriya Saran in crucial roles. After seeing their chemistry in the trailer, many felt that the pairing is out of sync as Shriya looks little aged beside Vishnu. But, the team felt that only Shriya could do justice for the crucial role.

Reportedly, Shriya was not the first choice for the role. The makers have approached Bollywood actors Kajol and Madhuri Dixit for the character. However, they turned down the offer.

This is when Manchu Vishnu’s wife suggested Shriya’s name for the role. Left with no option, the makers of Gayatri have roped in Shriya. It remains to be if Shriya justified the role with her performance.

Gayatri is a take on contemporary politics

Gayatri is on contemporaries politics

Mohan Babu’s Gayatri, which is set for release very soon, caught the attention of movie buffs after the intense trailer was unveiled recently. The film will see him playing dual avatars, one as a good guy and the other as a bad guy.

As Gayatri Patel, Mohan Babu is said to be at his menacing best with inimitable dialogues. It is heard that Gayatri is a critical take on contemporary politics.

As per our sources, there are some sharp and trenchant dialogues with political flavour aimed at mocking some of the present cabinet ministers of Telugu states for their ludicrous comments during press interactions and public appearances.

Some of dialogues in the film mouthed by Mohan Babu are

‘ Right left teliyadu atanu ravana sakha mantri’ ,

‘Sarvabhoumadikaram palakatam raadu cabinet Minister’

‘ Raastra pakshi teliyadu inko cabinet Minister ki’

These dialogues, which are said be inspired with real comments made by our ministers, are said to be so withering and are likely to invite debate after the film’s release.

Censor has been complete, it remains to be seen if they were muted or left unedited after the censor scrutiny.

Some Producers are Puppets under Heroes!- Says Mohan Babu

0

Dialogue King Mohan Babu is well known not just for his witty dialogues on screen but also for his sharp tongue on controversies and speaking truth off the screen. In many occasions like Vajrotsavam, he was the first person to raise voice against the atrocities and also question the power of Tollywood’s management. During an interview for a popular Telugu daily as part of promotions for his new film Gayatri, he has given some shocking statements on today’s producers!

The actor expressed disgust on certain producers who rave about their film even before it really gets started and also praise their respective heroes without any backing or reasoning. He also said that many producers are bringing on illegal money instead of spending from their own pockets for the films. He said that it is indeed sad to see even some directors becoming the same way.

When asked about the film, Mohan Babu said that despite being a remake, the Gayatri team made 80% of changes to the storyline and Manchu Vishnu will be seen playing Mohan Babu’s mannerisms as well. A story which involves confrontation between father and daughter is rare and he found it to be quite fetching in Gayatri. The dynamic actor specified that for an aspiring person who wants to be in acting, there is never a satisfaction as long as roles are concerned!

Gayatri trailer : Mohan Babu’s one man show

Gayatri trailer

Veteran actor Mohan Babu is portraying a high-octane villain in his upcoming film Gayatri.

The theatrical trailer of the film, which has a run time of 2 min 25 seconds, showcases Mohan Babu in two different roles. As Gayatri Patel, he looks fiery and brings in a lot of gravity with his intense mannerisms and trademark one liners. In the other role, he appears meek but carries some intensity with it too.

Manchu Vishnu and Shriya Saran seem to have got some intriguing roles that have strong nexus with the film’s plot. But, it is Mohan Babu who is seen completely dominating the trailer and gets elevated by the pulse-pounding score rendered by SS Thaman. This interesting trailer is sure to raise the expectations on the film.

Directed by Madan, the film is slated for release in February.

0

Actor Mohan Babu filmed a thrilling action sequence for “Gayatri”.

He shot it at the Ramoji Film City.

“It was an absolute happiness to direct an obsessive artist like him and see him perform,” Kanal Kannan, the film’s action director, said in a statement.

Mohan Babu performed the stunt rig action sequence with style, and a lot of planning and practice was involved in order to minimise the risks, Kannan said.

Nero Motion control rig is being used for adding visual effects in “Gayatri”, in which Mohan Babu plays the hero as well as the villain. This rig is used to capture the fight sequence between the two of them.

According to the statement, the film’s makers had especially flown in a stunt rig from Australia, coupled with a well-planned stunt design and stunt co-ordinators, to create a unique visual spectacle for a fight scene.

The fight sequence is being shot for the last eight days and will continue for another three days. The shooting was halted for four days because of the birth of Mohan Babu’s son Vishnu Manchu’s baby.

Vishnu Manchu also features in “Gayatri” as a romantic character opposite Shriya Saran. The film will release on February 9.

Vishnu to reprise Mohan Babu in Gayatri

0

Vishnu turns young Mohan Babu’s Gayatri

Manchu family has a list of actors and they are known for their collective efforts. One supports the other actor either with a cameo or making their presence in a song. Mohan Babu who has been away from films from the past couple of years has been left awestruck with the script narrated by Madhan. The movie has been titled Gayatri and the shoot of the film is progressing in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad.

Manchu Vishnu has a crucial role assigned in the film and he will be seen playing the younger version of Mohan Babu in the movie. This is sure a new attempt from the makers and Vishnu has enough screen presence in the film. The actor will be romancing Shriya in Gayatri and Mohan Babu’s performance is said to be the film’s major highlight. Nandamuri Balakrishna who is shooting for Jai Simha in RFC surprised Mohan Babu and Vishnu with his presence. He wished the team of Gayatri all the best.

Anasuya Bharadwaj signed Mohan Babu’s Gayatri

Television anchors with the high fan base and huge fame they attained in the small screens are slowly steeping into the big screen. Out of all the anchors, it’s Anasuya Bharadwaj who is showered filmy offers and she is making smart moves in selecting roles. As per official reports, Anasuya has signed a serious role and here are the details.

Anu has received appreciation for her intense role In Kshanam and it showed another side of the anchor acting abilities. The hot anchor was approached to play a serious journalist role in “Gayatri”, which is being directed by Madan and Mohan Babu is playing the lead role. There is zero glamour in her character and Anasuya liked the role which has the caliber to present her acting skills made her sign the project. Let’s hope it’s a wise choice Anu has made by giving importance to the character rather than being portrayed as a glam doll.
