    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.

    NTR takes lion’s share in JLK profits

    0

    There is a popular adage in Telugu – ‘ Thammudu Thammude Pekata Pekate ‘ which literally means ‘ debts are to be settled at any cost even though the other person is your kin’

    This proverb perfectly suits NTR because he followed the philosophy . It is well known that he teamed up with his brother and producer Kalyan Ram for Jai Lava Kusa. Soon after the project was announced, many felt that NTR is helping his brother to recoup the losses incurred by NTR Arts banner after Kick 2. NTR also kept on saying that he joined hands with Kalyan Ram to make it a memorable film in their combination.

    But, after all accounts are settled, NTR took away lion’s share in the profits. Sources close to the actor revealed that he bagged close to 35 Crores profit. He charged the remuneration and also got his share of profits without any concession.

    Spyder is a massive disaster on small screen too

    0

    Superstar Mahesh Babu pinned all his hopes on his last outing Spyder which has been directed by AR Murugadoss. Leaving many in surprise, the film ended up as one of the biggest debacles in the history of Indian cinema. Zee Telugu acquired the satellite rights of the film even before its release. Spyder has been screened on television during Sankranthi season and the film has been even rejected on small screen. Spyder received a TRP of 6.7 which is quite low for a biggie.

    Srikanth’s son debut film Niramala Convent managed to get a TRP of 8.1 which is higher than that of Spyder. NTR’s recent outing Jai Lava Kusa and Ravi Teja’s Raja the Great too have been screened on television during the holiday season and received a TRP of 17.1 which is decent for both the films. This is a huge blow for Spyder as the film has been badly rejected even on small screen.

Tarak’s portrayal has been even applauded on small screen too. Bobby directed Jai Lava Kusa and Rashi Khanna, Nivetha Thomas played the female leads. Nandamuri Kalyanram’s NTR Arts bankrolled the film.

    ‘Jai Lava Kusa’ make-up man refutes rumours

    0

    Renowned Hollywood make-up man Vance Hartwell was roped in to design special prosthetics for NTR’s Jai character in Jai Lava Kusa. Hartwell worked with the team and designed several prosthetics for the character, but they were not used in the film due to unknown reasons.

    Recently, there were reports in some media that Jai Lava Kusa makers didn’t pay to Vance Hartwell as his designs were not used in the film. It was also rumoured that he filed a complaint against the producer. However, Vance Hartwell has trashed all the rumours when Telugu360 contacted him about the issue.

    Vance clarified that he worked with the team and was treated extremely well with a fair payment. He also said that at no point he had an issue with the producer or any one associated with the team.

    Vance tells Telugu360  “I did work on the film Jai Lava Kusa. I dealt with the producers, director, and lead actor and, in all my dealings, was treated not only fairly, but extremely well. At no time was there ever an issue regarding money or payments.

    No Dusheera winner in overseas

    Jai Lava Kusa, SPYder and Mahanubhavudu released amidst high expectations during this Dussehra season. In Telugu states, both Jai Lava Kusa and Mahanubhavudu managed a fairly decent run, but SPYder is heading towards becoming a huge disaster. In overseas, all three films will end up as loss ventures.

    Jai Lava Kusa, which released on September 21st, was traded for 8 Crores( approx) in overseas. The film managed to garner above average talk and registered strong collections in its first weekend. However, the film slowed down at the box office after the first weekend and it is likely to fall short of the break even mark. Trade analysts predict a 10-15 percent loss to its buyers.

    Mahesh Babu’s SPYder did a strong pre release business in overseas. The film embarked on a record breaking start with $ 1 M premiers. But, the collections plummeted by almost 90 percent from the second day. The poor word of mouth had impacted the collections and the film is heading towards a huge loss venture for its buyers with nearly 60 percent losses.

    Mahanubhavudu, the dark horse of the Dussehra season, opened well in overseas, but couldn’t sustain well enough to touch the break even mark. The film surpassed the half million mark,but it will end up with 10-15 percent losses for its buyers.

    Going by the way all three films performed in overseas, is clear that there is no Dussehra winner at the box office there. The buyers of all three films will suffer losses.

    Double standards: Own production vs outside producer

    Film industry is full of double standards. Ironically, this statement is given by film folks. Hope the guy who gave this statement is not maintaining double standards. Jokes apart, we can clearly see the double standards followed by the film folks when they are working in the movies produced by others vs when they make movie by themselves.

    Lets take example of very recent movie Jai Lava Kusa. Nowadays, when producers are investing close to 100 Cr on films of star heroes, Kalyan Ram, as producer, managed to make an NTR-starrer in half the budget. The film did nearly 100 Cr Pre-release business so he might have earned around 50 Cr pure profit. After all costs excluded, sources say, Kalyan Ram made table profit of around 36 crores. But what audience felt when they watched the movie is, instead of maximizing the profits, he could have spent some money at least to shoot songs lavishly and for some crucial scenes, especially the interval bang so that quality of the movie would have been enhanced. Especially interval episode was the most crucial scene of the film and it could have become an iconic bang in tollywood history if it was given due importance. Instead, even that scene was shot at a cheap set with cheap quality. Critics say that if Jai Lava Kusa were to be bankrolled by an outside producer, he would have been made to splurge money on songs and lavish sets. As it was a home production, they saved every penny and made a fortune out of it. Though both the heroines justified their roles, it is to be noted that they too (rashi khanna, nivetha )are not top league heroines. One can easily understand they were taken considering financial aspects.

    Kalyan Ram is not the first one to do so. Previously Allu Aravind used to make movies with Chiranjeevi in the medium budget. While his movies like Daddy, Andarivaadu made on medium budget, same Chiranjeevi used to make high budget movies with producers like Ashwini dutt and Devi vara Prasad. Same goes with Pawan Kalyan’s movie Katamarayudu that was produced by his friend Sharat Marar.

    On the other hand, recent movie Spyder also incurring losses now. Of course, content is the main reason for a movie to become hit or flop. No graphics or lavishness can save the film if it has no content. But, had this movie been made with lesser budget, it would have been at least saved. When the producer is outsider, movies tend to have more spending.

    This kind of double standards doesn’t apply only to heroes. When director Shankar became producer and made his first film Mudalavan ( oke okkadu in Telugu) , everyone got surprised. Even though making standards we’re adequate for the film considering the story, they’re not on par with Shankar previous films made by other producers. Shankar revealed how he saved money at that time. For example, they bought some pots to use in a song ( andala rakshasive). Immediately after the song was shot, they broke the pots and added water to make it mud. Next day they shot that famous fight in the mud. After fight was over mud was allowed to dry and a scene was shot. After all these are over, as Shankar “proudly” revealed, they sold the sand almost at same price for which they bought pots. One can not but appreciate Shankar’s business management skills. But same skills are expected to put in use when he is making films for other producers too. Then Mudalavan was remade in Hindi as Nayak with Anil Kapoor. But producer is AM Ratnam this time. And, the difference in making standards was very apparent. When Nayak released, leading English daily ( times of India) remarked in it’s review about this double standards saying, ” In Tamil, where Shankar was producer, in a song, one flower designed graphically suddenly pops up from water. But in Hindi, where Shankar is not producer, many such graphical flowers pop all over the screen”.

    Moreover, this bias on own production is evident not only in film making but also in promotions too. Mahesh Babu attacked a shop keeper for selling pirated CDs during Arjun movie that was produced by his brother Ramesh Babu. Even NTR’s comments on reviews also came during Jai Lava Kusa that was also, incidentally, produced by his brother Kalyan Ram. Some believe NTR might not have made these comments if it was produced by other producers.

    The purpose of this article is not to demand high budget films but to bring forth these observations regarding double standards followed by some film folks. Also to advice these folks to produce the best quality out of the”allotted” budget instead of maximizing their own profits!!!

    Dussehra Trade Report — Mahanubhavudu, JLK shine

    0

    1. SPYder : With a distributor share of 8.55 Cr, SPYder stood on Top last weekend.5 days cumulative total stands at 29.25 Cr approx. The problem with SPYder to be told it didnt capitalize the weekend despite being on Top is that it didn’t run on an occupancy of atleast 50 percent of it’s capacity. But thanks to the festive holidays else it would haven’t been a disaster of epic proportions

    2. Mahanubhavudu : After a very good opening of 2.58 Cr the film sustained very well over the next two days that it even collected more than first day on it’s third day in almost all the areas. Three days distributor share is over 7.7 cr which is second biggest opening weekend for the hero behind Sathamanam Bhavati which is at 8.22 Cr. Taking gross into account this could be the highest.

    3. Jai Lava Kusa : After dropping on weekdays and ending up it’s first week with a distributor share of 45.17 Cr, Jai Lava Kusa has picked up in it’s second weekend. It has collected a share of 5.7 Cr over the last three days taking up 11 days total to an approx 51.8 Cr. This is second film for the hero to surpass 50cr mark in Telugu States and 12th film overall. The film is sold for 65 cr and there is a lot more to recover in coming days.

    Overseas BO report : Dussehra releases fail to capitalise on weekend

    Dussehra releases Jai Lava Kusa, SPYder and Mahanubhavudu, which opened on a strong note at the US box office, failed to capitalise on the just concluded weekend. While Mahanubhavudu managed to garner decent figures in its first weekend, SPYder has thoroughly disappointed the trade circles with its appalling collections after a sensational start with $ 1 M premiers. NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa fizzled out in its second weekend.

    Mahanubhavudu, which took a decent start with $ 85K from its Thursday premiers, managed to collect $ 113K and $ 200 K on Friday and Saturday. The family entertainer concluded the first weekend with $92K on Sunday taking the overall total to half a million dollar mark. The break even mark for Mahanubhavudu is close to $ 1M.

    Mahesh Babu’s SPYder is staring at a huge loss as the collections drastically plunged after a solid start. The weekend collections are very disappointing as the film is struggling to touch the $ 1.5 Million mark. After opening its box office account with $ 1 M from premiers, SPYder failed to capitalise in the first weekend. The film collected $95K and $ 120K on Friday and Saturday respectively. On Sunday, the film collected close to $55 K and is at a touching distance from$ 1.5 M. The break even mark is close to $4.5 M.

    The decent run of NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa is coming to an end. After performing on par with the trade expectations in the first weekend, Jai Lava Kusa fizzled out in the second weekend. However, the film surpassed the $ 1.5 Million mark making NTR the only south Indian hero to have a hat trick of films in the prestigious $1.5M club. The break even mark is in between $1.7 M and $1.8 M.

    Ram Charan appreciated “Jai “

    0

    Mega power star Ram Charan appreciated Tarak on his recent success. Not just that, he was invited to NTR’s private party and he attended and both the stars spent some time together.

    Jai Lava Kusa movie, directed by Bobby, has been running successfully in the theaters. Ram Charan recently called NTR over phone call and appreciated NTR’s performance. He particularly seem to have liked Tarak’s expressions and dialogues in the movie.

    Writer Kona Venkat, who was also there in the party, posted the pic of NTR and Cherry in his twitter account and tweeted – “Celebrating with “JAI” .. Great gesture by Ram Charan after watching “JAI LAVAKUSA” .. Thank u”. Anyway its nice to see two big stars hugging each other!!

    Dussehra releases need a strong weekend in US to sustain

    0

    Three films released during this Dussehra season. While NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa released a week earlier, SPYder and Mahanabhavudu released with a gap of two days. All three films took a strong start on their premiers day.

    Jai Lava Kusa started off on a promising note with career best premiers for NTR in overseas. The film surged past the million dollar mark by the end of Friday and completed its first weekend with strong figures. However, the film wobbled in the second week with meagre collections. Till now, Jai Lava Kusa collected $ 1.4 M. The break even mark for this emotional drama is close to $ 1.8 M and it should have a strong second weekend to put its buyers in safe zone.

    Another tentpole film which released amidst high expectations is Mahesh Babu’s SPYder. The spy thriller kick started its box office journey on a mind boggling note with $ 1 Million premiers in overseas. The film took an all time fourth highest start for a Telugu film. Unfortunately, the collections nosedived from the next day. The poor word of mouth and the below par reviews have impacted the collections to some extent. After a phenomenal start, SPYder managed to collect $ 132 K and $ 44K on its next two days. The break even mark is $ 4.5 M and it looks very impossible for the film to touch the mark at this rate. The film need to perform very well in the weekend for its buyers to minimise the losses.

    Mahanabhavudu, which is termed as the dark horse of this season, started off on a very good note in overseas. The film notched up $ 77K from its premiers day. The word of mouth is very impressive and the reports are encouraging. The comedy caper need to collect close to $ 1 M for entering the safe zone. So, the first weekend is going to be very crucial.

    All three films should have a strong weekend if they are to get closer to the break even mark.

    Keep watching Telugu360 for trade updates on all three films.

    NTR’s latest emotional tale, Jai Lava Kusa, is running successfully in all areas. The film has grossed 100 Crores and is heading towards becoming NTR’s biggest ever hit.

    During the pre release event, NTR said that after Bobby narrated him the script he discussed it with two of his close friends as he was not fully confident whether he can pull the challenging roles or not. He signed the project only after gaining confidence from them. NTR said that he will reveal the names only after the film’s success at the box office.

    Close sources revealed that it was SS Rajamouli and VV Vinayak with whom Tarak discussed the script before giving the nod to Bobby. As everyone knows , NTR shares a close rapport with these two star directors and he often speaks about their influence on him and his career during various events. NTR worked with them for three films each and he often takes their assistance while signing his films.

    Are new movies ” Critically ill patients in ICU ” ?

    0

    The problem with selective perception is that the ‘self-narration’ often leads to pitiable fallouts. The narrative that movies are “critically ill patients in ICU” and that the “audience are doctors ” is whacky. Movies are those products which consumers choose and buy tickets exclusively for experiencing entertainment.

    Reviewers are also a section of customers who watch the movie and take time to write their assessment. As per the accounting firm Deloitte, if you don’t have reviews, your potential patrons especially the modern consumers are less likely to make a purchase. Some reviews can be painful, but having no reviews is worse than bad reviews.

    On the other hand, If the reviews aren’t exactly the Vox Populi, the reviewers are persecuted by the fans in the most disgusting way. People empathize with patients in ICU but are not entertained.

    In an interview during “Jai Lava Kusa” promotions before its release, Tarak did drop hints for the reviewers by saying, “write reviews but do not use extremely negative words when someone tries innovative things, instead appreciate their attempt.”

    However, the reviewers failed to understand that the seller was not selling a product of entertainment but a patient in ICU.

    Either be in the state of denial or in the actor’s words, “just accept the whole package”, as there is only one way to avoid reviews or criticism – say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
