    Nidhhi Agerwal gets nostalgic as ‘iSmart Shankar’ turns one

    0

    Actress Nidhhi Agerwal has opened up on how her life changed after Puri Jagannadh’s Telugu blockbuster “iSmart Shankar”, which released a year ago on July 18.

    “I feel proud to be a part of ‘iSmart Shankar’. Puri sir was in my list of dream directors and I’m very happy to have worked with him. The film has changed my life in a lot of way. For the first time, I did a very ‘massy’ film and a whole new section of people have seen me in the film. People praised me a lot. Also, it felt like a long holiday while working with Puri sir,” Nidhhi recalled.

    The movie featured Ram Pothineni as the lead character of a contract killer named Shankar, who manages to escape after murdering a politician.

    Nabha Natesh and Satyadev Kancharana were also a part of the cast of “iSmart Shankar”.

    2019 Domestic report: Tollywood ends the decade on a sombre report

    0

    Tollywood’s total box office revenue was flat in 2019 at ₹825 crore. In contrast, last year, the box office went a quarter down from the record high of 2017, even excluding Baahubali: The Conclusion, it dipped 7.4 percent. The industry was able to match the total box office of 2018 with 8 less films. This stability may look impressive, but there’s more to these numbers than simple look will tell. First off, below is a table showing the box office highlights of last five years.

    Over the last few years, drawing conclusions on comparison from the box office share has become a little complicated due to imposition of GST, which deflated the shares in the second half of 2017 and whole of 2018 with 28 percent tax rate, and then inflated the numbers in 2019 with reduction of rate to 18 percent. Complicating things further, in 2019, distributors quietly began including the GST output when reporting box office numbers. The move was basically to juice the numbers.

    Adjusting these two factors, the comparable number last year is ₹720 crore approx, which is about 13 percent down from last year. This consecutive two years decline in box office is a worrisome issue for the industry. Despite continuous increase in ticket rates and growth in multiplex sector, the box office is on decline.

    The classifications of 2019 are as below, with only 2 medium budget blockbusters during the year. No Tollywood tentpole was able to become even a Super Hit with Maharishi being the only Hit from the A-tier stars. The biggest grosser of the year was Syeraa Narasimha Reddy with a record breaking ₹125 crore while the biggest hit of the year was F2. Saaho was the biggest missed opportunity which, however, did well in Hindi version.

    iSmart effect: Bellamkonda Suresh back to the old song

    0

    Without even taking his father’s approval, young hero Bellamkonda Srinivas came up with ‘Sita’ and with his dad’s half consent he has done ‘Rakshasudu’. But both films haven’t yielded big fruits at the box office. Sita is an upright dud, and Rakshasudu caused slight losses despite the good talk around.

    Recently when an aspiring director wanted to narrate a story to Srinivas, his dad Suresh is said to have asked him to tell the gist. After listening to that, the Senior Bellamkonda has shown doors to the youngsters. And here is his logic, which an insider shared.

    “Evaru is a superhit as per reviews and talk, so is Ismart Shankar that fetched above-average reviews and good talk. But Evaru made only 10 crores share so far and might get another couple of crores and Ismart Shankar bagged 34 cr share. So which film a producer wants to make now?” asked Bellamkonda Suresh, as per the people in the know about this incident.

    It is expected that Ismart Shankar will once again stimulate the hopes of these ‘oora mass films’ loving producers. This might result in a bunch of similar run-of-the-mill films churned out. While Bellamkonda opened about this old son, we have to see who else will join the bandwagon.

    ‘iSmart..’ girls looking for good offers

    0

    Ram starrer iSmart Shankar, which emerged as blockbuster hit, marked the comeback of director Puri Jagannadh. The film also gave the much needed break for two happening starlets Nabha Natesh and Nidhhi Agerwal. Both these young heroines were looking for one decent hit to survive in Tollywood and they bagged the success at the right time with iSmart Shankar.

    Now, they are hoping that the success of iSmart Shankar will fetch them good offers in coming days. Nabha Natesh made her debut in Sudheer Babu’s Nannudochukunduvate last year. Even though Nabha impressed with her screen presence, she was unable to get offers. Her bold performance in iSmart Shankar has grabbed the attention of audience. She is now looking for glamorous roles in upcoming medium budget films.

    Also, Niddhi Agerwal got a break with iSmart Shankar after tasting failures in her first two outings with Savyasachi and Mr. Majnu. Her glamorous performance turned out to be one of the assets for the success of iSmart Shankar. But, she is yet to get her next offer in Telugu.

    Puri has already announced his next film and Ram has lined up a couple of interesting projects up next. Both Nabha and Niddhi are also confident that iSmart Shankar success will be a turning point for them.

    iSmart Shankar 12 days Worldwide Collections – Blockbuster

    iSmart Shankar has emerged as a blockbuster as the film collected a distributor share of 31.80 cr by the end of 12 days. After a good first week the film has held well in its second weekend despite competition from Dear Comrade. Collections on 12th day ie, Second Monday in many centres are similar to the new release Dear Comrade. The film is set to collect over 33 cr or may be more in its lifetime which depends on how the upcoming releases will fare. It could have done more than 35 Cr without depending on further releases if it had appeal for the family audience which it lacks big time.

    Puri clarifies on Ismart Shankar Plagiarism Issue

    0

    Sensational director Puri Jagannadh made his comeback with Ismart Shankar, a mass entertainer that featured Ram, Nabha Natesh and Nidhhi Agerwal in the lead roles. Tamil actor Akash recently met the press and claimed that Ismart Shankar has been inspired from his 2016 film Naan Yaar. He threatened that he would initiate legal proceedings if Puri Jagannadh and his team fail to respond on plagiarism row.

    Puri Jagannadh and his team are busy touring across Telugu states meeting fans in theatres. During a press meet, Puri responded about the plagiarism row. He said “Ismart Shankar is my story and I did not copy it from anywhere. Akash did not meet or approach me till date about this. I have seen this in the media. We are just currently enjoying the success of Ismart Shankar”. We have to wait to see where this issue ends.

    Plagiarism problems for Ismart Shankar

    Top director Puri Jagannadh made his comeback after a while with Ismart Shankar. The film is raking massive revenues across all the released circuits and it has been named as a blockbuster already. Ram, Nabha Natesh and Nidhhi Agerwal are the lead actors in this mass entertainer. When the whole unit was spotted celebrating the success of Ismart Shankar, Puri and his team received a shock after actor Akash claimed that Ismart Shankar has been copied from his film.

    Akash claims that Ismart Shankar is adapted from his 2016 film Naan Yaar. Akash said that he watched the film in Chennai and was left in shock. Though he tried to approach Puri and his team, they did not respond said Akash. It is then Akash called C Kalyan and the discussions are on. Akash said that he collected all the valid proofs and forwarded them to Puri Jagannadh. The actor is in plans for legal proceedings if he fails to get a possible solution.

    Puri Plays to his Strengths

    0

    The maverick director and filmmaker Puri Jagannadh gained much popularity after his debut film Badri with his out of the box lines,  dialogues and crazy characterizations of the lead roles. His characters never have an added layer of nicety or polished nature, but they are unbashfully themselves. Whether it was Ravi Teja’s character as a determined lover in Idiot, or the petty goon Pandu (Mahesh Babu) in Pokiri, or the badass police offer Jr.NTR in Temper, Puri Jagannadh always strikes the bull’s eye with his striking characterizations. At one point, the viewer will also be tempted to think that it is his mind which is talking through the characters he created! It was this fearless and frivolous nature of lead characters which became the biggest USP of Puri’s films. Over the years, he has churned out a unique formula of a commercial film which also dwells deeply on philosophy and spirituality! This indeed is a strange combination because in real life- commercial living and spirituality are poles apart.

    To get an essential high in terms of filmmaking and presentation, filmgoers love to go to Puri’s films. However, after Temper, the director was struggling to find his sweet spot in bringing out a commercial hit. His last release Mehbooba featuring his son Akash Puri as a lover boy didn’t do much well at the Box Office.

    But the determined filmmaker made sure that his next film will be paying to his strengths- which comprises of strong-willed hero, witty punch dialogues, and rope tight script. With Ram’s Ismart Shankar, Puri got back to his essential strengths with amazing honesty in the script. Interestingly, he made Energetically Star Ram a new makeover as a Telangana goon with a sci-fi twist. The audience are flocking to theatres to just get a high of the rawness of the flick and Mani Sharma’s background score is also getting much adoration.

    It is indeed a brilliant comeback for Puri Jagannadh and Mani Sharma back into the groove with nerve-wracking hit by ISmart Shankar doing well at the Box Office! This proves time and again that trusting your instincts and strengths will bring out the best output in Cinema!

    All is not well – Ram flies abroad after a spat with Puri

    0

    Energetic Star Ram and sensational director Puri Jagannadh teamed up for the first time for Ismart Shankar and the film is raking massive revenues all over. The film entered the safe zone even before the first weekend. The film carried decent expectations but Puri’s recent track record made trade show no interest over the film. Puri and his team managed to find buyers in the last minute and the film got a decent release.

    Ram who was promised Rs 5 crores remuneration but he was paid Rs 2.5 crores in advance. Ram too did not mount pressure as he had a firm belief in Puri. But things changed completely after Ram’s pending remuneration was not paid before the release. The actor decided to skip the post-release promotions as he was not paid the full amount.

    Ram’s uncle Sravanthi Ravikishore is handling the issue and he is in plans to approach the Producers’ Council if the issue doesn’t get sorted out in the next couple of days. Puri Jagannadh is expected to be left in hefty profits as the film has been doing stunning theatrical business and with the digital, satellite deals closed before release. We have to wait to see if Puri settles Ram’s remuneration before things turn loud and trigger controversies.

    0

    Controversial filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma landed in trouble by riding triple on a motorbike and posting the video on Twitter, prompting the police to fine him for traffic violation, here on Saturday.

    Varma riding pillion along with director Ajay Bhupathi on a Royal Enfield’ driven by another director Agsthya without helmet, reached a theatre in Moosapet to watch Telugu movie ‘iSmart Shankar’, directed by Puri Jagannadh.

    “Am looking like a pick pocket in my getup when I went to see #ismartshankar in Sri Ramulu theatre in Moosapet,” RGV, as Varma is popularly known, tweeted along with video and pictures.

    This was followed by another tweet. “Where is the police? I think they are all inside the theatre watching #ismartshankar.”

    The Cyberabad police retweeted with a witty comment. “Thanks @RGVzoomin for reporting Traffic Violations. We expect the same responsibility in actually following the Traffic rules yourself. By the way, why only theaters?, Traffic Police see a lot of drama, circus like below on roads every minute,” the police tweet said tagging the video of Varma and two others on the bike.

    The police also posted the Rs 1,335 traffic ticket (challan), issued in the name of B. Dilip Kumar, in whose name the two-wheeler is registered, for violations.

    Earlier, Varma created a stir at iSmart Shankar’s success party by pouring liquor on himself. In the video posted on Twitter, he is seen hugging Puri Jagannadh and actress Charmi Kaur, co-producers of the movie.
