    Tarak comes up with a scathing analogy aimed at reviewers

    NTR at Jai Lava Kusa Success Meet

    NTR and team Jai Lava Kusa are buoyed with the way the film is performing at the box office after its release last Thursday. The emotional drama earned career best first weekend collections for NTR. On the eve of the film’s success, the core team members of Jai Lava Kusa addressed the press in Hyderabad to thank audience for receiving the film very well.

    Talking at the event, NTR said Jai Lava Kusa is a very satisfying film for him as an actor. Surprisingly, NTR took potshots at reviewers who are spreading negative feed back on the film. He came with a scathing analogy in which he compared movies to patients admitted in ICU and the film’s cast to the relatives of the patient. He then went on to say that it is the doctors ( audience) who are going to decide the fate of the patient ( movie), but not the passersby ( reviewers) who are sceptical about the condition ( output) of the patient.

    NTR concluded saying that every individual has the right to voice his opinion and requested not to belittle other’s hard work and efforts.

    He thanked the audience for lapping up the film and making it a huge success at the box office.

    This analogy got a good response from those who attended the success meet. However, how analysts and reviewers respond to this – we’ll have to wait and see.

    DSP to burn the dance floor on grand finale of Bigg Boss Telugu

    0

    The countdown for the finale of the biggest reality show of Telugu television Bigg Boss has begun. While we were already informed that the Grand Finale on Sunday will be BIGG from 6 PM to 10 PM, there are a lot of suprises awaiting the audience.

    We exclusively reveal that Devi Sri Prasad will be performing on the grand finale. DSP who is enjoying back-to-back blockbusters with the host NTR, will set the stage on fire with his sizzling performance and will also promote Jai Lava Kusa.

    Over this week, viewers have noticed that the contestants have been thronging to Bigg Boss house and sharing memories with peers. With the finalists getting a makeover and ex-contestants in home, there will certainly be some dance performances. While there is only one day left for viewers to cast their votes, the grand finale will not be a live telecast for obvious logistical reasons and will be recorded just few hours before the broadcast.

    Of the 16 contestants who entered the Bigg Boss house, the five finalists to complete 70 days Bigg Boss Telugu season 1 are Shiva Balaji, Navdeep, Adarsh Balakrishna, Veda Archana and Hari Teja. The winner whose name will be announced towards the end of the show will receive prize money of Rs. 50 lakh.

    #JLK OS premiers : NTR career highest, but little short of expectations

    0

    NTR’s latest offering Jai Lava Kusa, which released in a grand way yesterday, took a flying start at the box office in all territories. In US, the film opened in nearly 190 locations making it on the biggest ever releases. Trade circles were expecting the premiers day gross in the range of $ 650 k – $ 700K due to the strong advance bookings and the handy Fandango offer.

    But, the premiers collections have slightly fallen short of the trade expectations as the film managed to collect only close to $ 600 K. Less number of walk-ins than expected has impacted the collections resulting in a slight disappointment for trade. However, it has emerged as the highest opener in NTR’s career by surpassing the premiers of Janatha Garage which collected $ 584K.

    With decent reports all over, Jai Lava Kusa is expected to perform well at the box office towards the first weekend. NTR’s impressive performance in this emotional thriller is the biggest asset which might draw crowds during this Dusheera season.

    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.

    My family legacy keeps me grounded: Jr NTR

    0

    Actor Jr NTR, a third generation star from the popular Nandamuri clan, says he is proud to carry forward his family legacy as he believes it keeps him grounded and guides him in his career.

    Having made his acting debut at the age of 17 with Telugu romantic drama “Ninnu Choodalani”, he also believes there’s no escape from what he calls the family “baggage”.

    “I’ve been given the opportunity to carry (forward) the legacy with which people associate me; I can’t escape it even if I don’t like it. I take pride in carrying forward what’s been given to me,” Jr NTR told IANS in an exclusive interview.

    Jr NTR is named after his grandfather, the late Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao — universally known as NTR. An acclaimed and hugely popular Telugu actor-filmmaker, he broke into politics and went on to become the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

    “If there’s no load on you, no anchor point, we are free souls and we will be roaming around. We end up doing whatever we feel like. The baggage made me realise who I am and it has kept me grounded,” Jr NTR said.

    With that comes a certain image. Does it mean he can do only certain kinds of films?

    “I thought it restricted me to certain kinds of films. But I realised later that it didn’t, and that I was responsible for my choices. My son’s entry into my life changed the way I saw my career — and my general outlook towards life,” he added.

    The birth of his son, Abhay Ram, three years ago taught him to be “genuine” in what he does.

    “We keep thinking of what others feel when we do something. I was meant to be an actor and I realised that only after my son was born. I haven’t been fully genuine in what I’ve been doing. The best thing after my son is my work — and he taught me to be genuine,” he said.

    This has been visible in Jr NTR’s last few outings such as “Naanaku Prematho” and “Janatha Garage”.

    He sees Puri Jagannadh’s 2015 film “Temper”, released a year after his son was born, as the big turning point in his career.

    “The films I’d like to watch and be a part of are completely different from the kind of films I did and even do now. I’m not complaining because it’s all about success in this commercially-driven industry. But later, I also realised it’s all about personal satisfaction, which I was missing in my career,” he said.

    “Temper” gave his career a much-needed high, he said. “I needed to have a journey of my own to tell my son tomorrow. To even discuss my journey with my family, I have to set an example. Life needs to be like a roller-coaster ride with ups and downs. Otherwise, it’s not exciting,” he added.

    Jr NTR’s new Telugu film, “Jai Lava Kusa”, is slated for release on Thursday. He plays a triple role in the movie.

    Talking about the film, he said: “More than getting excited about playing three characters, it’s the emotional angle of the script which got me hooked. This film could be made without the triplets because it’s got such potential.”

    “This could have been a nice multi-starrer. But Bobby (director) wanted to make it with triplets and the film was designed on this premise. It’s about three brothers. My brother is producing the film and this is a special film for both of us.”

    Exclusive : JLK poised to be NTR’s highest premiers in overseas

    0

    NTR is carrying a solid box office track record in overseas. His last three films performed exceptionally well at the US box office. While Nannaku Prematho made NTR take a spot in the elite $ 2M club, Janatha Garage silenced his critics with a solid run ( $ 1.8M ) despite a mixed word of mouth. Now, he is all set to improve his box office charisma in overseas with the much awaited release, Jai Lava Kusa, which is ready for a thunderous opening tomorrow Wednesday.

    As reported earlier, Jai Lava Kusa is releasing in 189 locations all over USA. The pre sales are terrific and the affordable ticket pricing is likely to result in strong footfalls in all areas. According to the exclusive report we obtained, Jai Lava Kusa has already notched up $240,000 from its pre sales in 70 odd locations (Cinemark 65 Locations, 8K Group 6 Locations) as of 7PM EST Tuesday. This is a sensational start considering that it is not a crazy combo film as director Bobby is coming from a disaster in the form of Sardar Gabbar Singh. We caution our visitors to not estimate pro-ratedly (same range) for other un-reported 120 locations – because so far reported collections were from major cities.

    The Fandango Buy 1 Get 1 offer would have helped a lot if not ended on Friday ( 09/15) night. By the time this crazy offer ended , bookings in many areas have not been opened. Otherwise, the offer would have been utilised to a maximum extent. Nevertheless, Jai Lava Kusa is poised to be the biggest ever opener for NTR in overseas.

    Interview with NTR : ‘ Jai Lava Kusa ‘ is my chance to excel

    The countdown for witnessing Jai Lava Kusa has already begun and the protagonist Junior NTR aka Tarak shared his experience with us on a breezy Tuesday evening at the Park Hyatt in Hyderabad…

    Tarak considers himself to be very fortunate to get a movie like Jai Lava Kusa which he describes as one of its kind opportunity. Though he signed the movie taking into consideration the emotions and drama, the three roles demanded a lot more and the actor “worked very hard” as this was Tarak’s “chance to excel”.

    With each of the characters Jai, Lava and Kusa depicted differently, Tarak cheerfully said, “Portraying three characters was not like doing three movies but more like doing hundred movies at once.”

    Jai is the most defining moment

    The actor considers Jai’s intense role to be the most defining moment for his career especially because a lot of research went in and the whole story progresses from Jai’s point of view. “I had reference point for Lava from Janatha Garage/Nanaku Prematoh and for Kusa from Yama Donga. It is extremely challenging to play Jai, when you don’t have a reference point for a character that adores the mighty villainous Ravana”. He gives the credit to director Bobby for the stuttering act of Jai. While the entire movie was challenging for the award-winning actor, the most difficult part was achieving the voice of Jai.

    Tarak considers himself very blessed as he doesn’t have to be dress up like Ravana, thus, avoiding unwarranted comparisons with Late N T Rama Rao who has set an unprecedented parameter for Ravana’s role. Though there will be obvious references to Late NTR, Tarak says “I wanted to get my way in Ravana’s character and not replicate my grand-father”.

    Working under own banner

    Speaking about working in home production – NTR Arts, Tarak held, “there was special pressure to deliver something good”. The relationship between hero and producer is same for any movie, but with this movie, the tag of hero and producer were discarded. In many situations Kalyan Ram took decisions singlehandedly and in several other instances Tarak himself took unanimous decisions.

    Overwhelming to play three roles using new technology

    Portraying three roles with the new technology especially with a robotic arm constantly moving beside him was “overwhelming and disturbing” initially. Tarak took some time to get adjusted to the movements of robotic arm and adds that Mo-sys was more practical solution and offered the flexibility to shoot in small places, indoors and other tiny places.

    DSP’s background score

    About the music, Tarak says DSP has proved his mettle. He said the background score is commendable effort especially for an emotional film like Jai Lava Kusa. He said in some scenes the film will “really really make you cry”.

    Audience appreciate novelty

    Jai Lava Kusa is not just about relationship between brothers but about the good, bad and the differences in their journey together. Tarak requests people not to use extremely negative words when someone tries innovative things, instead appreciate their attempt. He welcomes the constant love and affection from fans and adds, “the newness will always be accepted by audience be it films or a reality show like Bigg Boss”.

    Fluky to be host of Bigg Boss

    Tarak likes his new role as host and said, “every week being able to reach out to audience is my luck”. Terming the Bigg Boss format as “challenging”, the host did not disclose details about his choice of winner. Also, expressing uncertainty over his future projects on television-Tarak says, “No one can predict one’s longevity especially in creative industry. As long as my age supports I will do as many things as possible which give me ultimate happiness”.

    Concludes by rating his contribution

    The actor who is nothing less than excited for the outcome of Jai Lava Kusa which all set to hit screens on 21st September, concludes by saying “as much as an actor can do and should do, I did. As much as a brother should do, I did. I have given the contribution that I was supposed to do for Jai Lava Kusa”.

    0
    It is a general practice in Telugu film industry to screen special shows of new movies to the family members of hero, director, producer and other key technicians and actors.
    As NTR’s ‘Jai Lava Kusa’ is gearing up for release on Sep 21this Thursday, a special show was held for his family members on Monday by formally cutting 9 tickets. It is known that the 9 sentiment is being followed by the JLK team in all matters related to the film. As per insiders, NTR’s family members were extremely pleased with the film and the actor’s performance. NTR and Kalyan Ram were already having huge confidence on the film and the appreciation from family members made them jubilant.
    These special screenings are usually held one or two days prior to the film’s release but in the case of JLK, it was held three days ahead in order to avoid Tuesday which is considered an unlucky day.
    Jai Lava Kusa is going to have the biggest release in NTR’s career. Trade experts predict the film to take non-Baahubali record opening on 21st and create mayhem at box office over the first weekend thanks to Dasara holidays and immense hype. The rest will depend on the talk.

    Tarak’s take on social media and the negativity

    0

    Tarak who is actively promoting his new flick Jai Lava Kusa, gazes at the different models of mobile phones put at his table for recording the interview, smiles and says “Technology it is!” Speaking at a press meet he said, “Technology has evolved so well, previously we used to wait for the newspaper next day. Now as I speak, there is a news about me on social media”.

    Responding to the allegations of abusive posts by his fans on social media, he said, “Just because someone has junior NTR’s photograph, doesn’t imply that they are my fans.” He says that there is no guarantee or any solid proof that his fans are spreading negativity. Furthermore, Tarak came back with a pinch of sarcasm saying that Twitter should have a feature wherein a person can register as fan of a particular hero. He said, “There is no point in accusing my fans of negativity because I don’t know if they (people who abuse) are really my fans.”

    When asked how he feels about social media’s intrusion in his life, Tarak says “Social media is a package and everything that comes with it is a part and parcel”. He advises users to stop being pessimistic and enjoy the in and out of social media as “It is your choice, whom you want to allow in your life and whom want to keep at a distance.”

    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.

    NTR to Sport Never Seen Before Look in Trivikram’s Film

    0

    Young tiger NTR Jr, who has been trying something new in every film starting from ‘Temper’, is going to surprise everyone with his look in his next film, a Trivikram directorial.

    The ‘Janatha Garage’ star has planned to go on a long vacation with his family to Europe after the completion of Bigg Boss show. He will be back to India in November only, when Trivikram gets ready to take their film onto floors. During this vacation, NTR will be undergoing special training to get a lean yet tonned look, which he will be sporting in Trivikram’s film.

    In a recent interview, NTR spoke about the same. When the interviewer asked him about going to London for vacation and also about rumors of undergoing detox therapy there, NTR said, “Its true that I am planning to go on a long vacation with family but we haven’t yet decided upon the place. I don’t say detox therapy is wrong but I don’t need it. I have a particular look in my mind for my next film with Trivikram, and I am planning to take all the necessary measures to get that look.”

    We have learnt that it won’t be detox therapy but some sort of special training which helps in losing weight and gaining muscle mass. It won’t be a never seen before look for the star hero.

    NTR is currently busy promoting his new film, ‘Jai Lava Kusa’, which is slated to hit theatres on Sep 21.
