Khaidi passes the test of first Monday

0

Barring the solo hit ‘Khaki’, Karthi has witnessed only flops in the last three years. With flops galore, his market came crashing down. Despite mastering the Telugu language and promoting his movies in Telugu states aggressively, his market has not seen any growth of late.
 
His latest film ‘Khaidi’ didn’t take the big opening on the first day for this reason. Only after good ratings coming in and word-of-mouth has started spreading, theaters began witnessing footfalls. Surprisingly, the movie has seen a huge jump on the first Monday indicating that the thriller has clicked with the audiences. The film has passed the crucial test on Monday. 
 
This film has given a huge boost to Karthi’s career. Needless to say, flabbergasted Karthi has already announced a sequel to this thriller.

Karthi’s Khaidi witnesses extraordinary jump

0

A testing time for Vijay and Karthi

0

No major Telugu film is releasing during the Diwali festival weekend paving way for two dubbed movies occupying all the screens in Telugu states. While Karthi has steady following and market in Telugu, Vijay has been trying to get a hold of the Telugu market for a long time.

Not having Telugu films in competition is a huge advantage for Vijay and Karthi but this season is also a testing time for them. Karthi’s “Khaidi” seems to be a serious movie with no glamour quotient and entertainment. It is an intense drama. Such films have limited appeal at the box-office. Besides the niche content, Karthi’s popularity has also come crashing down with a series of flops. This is a big test for Karthi in the Telugu market.

Vijay, on the other hand, has nothing to lose but gain. His “Whistle” has generated terrific buzz all over India. If the film clicks with Telugu audiences, he would stabilize his market here. The film needs to collect Rs 10 Cr minimum to reach the break-even stage. With the help of Dil Raju and super planning by presenter Mahesh Koneru, Vijay’s film has grabbed a maximum number of theaters. This is the best time for Vijay to prove his strength now in Tollywood.

Dev Review – An Expensive Misadventure


Dev Movie Review Rating

Telugu360 Rating 1.5/5

Story:

Dev, a Ukraine returned bachelor from a rich family, is a photographer, adventurer,and mountaineer. Meghna is an entrepreneur based out of San Francisco. Dev who sees Meghna profile on Facebook, start trying for her. Both meet in India and friendship starts. However, as in any love story, conflict starts around Dev’s profession. Rest of the movie is about how the couple resolve it

Analysis:

Dev is a stylish but zero substance film that tries to be a love story. Initial few minutes of the films give the impression that we are about to watch a film with novelty. But, soon the audience wishful thinking shatters. After taking off promisingly, debut director Rajath Ravishankar struggles to narrate the film in an engaging manner. The characterizations lack clarity, especially for the hero. The director has added all wishful thoughts to the Dev character which is a photographer, biker, nature lover and mountaineer who climbs Mount Everest, civil architect, lover boy and what not. Similarly, a self-driven woman, who has been raised in the USA, who became an owner of a product company by age of 25, behaves like a typical filmy girl in her India visit. The love story between Dev and Meghna is bland, lacks any strong conflict point. Prakashraj character is another sad part of the film. Throughout of the film, he stares at his son Dev with love, says “Ninnu chusthunte mee amma gurthukuvastondhira “ dialogue repeatedly. Ramyakrishna(heroine’s mother) has no role in the proceedings. After a boring first half, the second half goes on even more directionless.

There are many songs but the audience may not remember one by the time they exit. However,the background score is good. Cinematography, Background score,Locations, Visuals etc Technical values are superior

Performances: Karthi and Rakul are okay, Ramya Krishna & Prakash Raj’s acting skills are unutilized. R J Vignesh played the hero’s friend role which got more screen time than the hero at times. His character is annoying. Amrutha Srinivasan is ok as the hero’s friend

Positives :

  • High production values

Negatives :

  • Poor story, Flat narration
  • No Entertainment
  • Unreal characterizations

Verdict:

Dev is easily one of the most boring movies in recent times.Hero characterization is unclear with half baked ideology. Karthi and Rakul are okay,Ramya Krishna & Prakash Raj’s acting skills are unutilized. An avoidable film even if you’re a fan of any of the lead actors.

Chinna Babu Review : Overdose of Sentiment !

Chinna Babu Review , Kadaikutty Singam Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.25/5

ChinnaBabu is touted to be a realistic family drama which also highlights the distress faced by farmers.Tamil dubbed films are finding good patronage from Telugu audience these days. Can ChinnaBabu emerge as another decent hit in that category? Let’s find out

Story:

Chinnababu film begins with an introduction to RudraRaju’s humongous family and the relations within. Rudraraju (Satyaraj) wants a son but becomes the father of five daughters from his two wives. While looking for a third wife, his first wife becomes pregnant and delivers a boy Krishnamraju(Karthi). Karthi grows up, two nieces want to marry him but he falls in love with an outsider Neerada(Sayesha).Knowing that heir apparent Karthi is liking outside girl, disputes ignite within the big family. Father satyaraj gives an ultimatum that his son can marry only with consent from all his 5 elder sisters. Rest of the film is how Karthi tries to convince the rest of the family to give nod for his marriage.

Analysis:

Chinnababu starts off on lighter vein and interesting note. Karthi’s character Krishnamraju as a farmer offers something difference than current days’ run of the mill characterizations. Dialogues addressing the negligence of farming profession are impressive. There are few social message snippets in initial stage of the film which slows transforms into out and out family oriented film. As Karthi loves an outsider Neerada( Sayesha ) , the trouble brews within the family. Surendra Raju is the villain character, entire villainy is so clichéd. The film becomes increasingly farcical post interval. There’s a lot of heavy sentiment that bears television serial. The sentiment after a point gets repetitive and boring.A couple of songs by D.Imman are good but the background score is old school.

Adequate care has been taken care in dubbing this film into Telugu, but the huge number of character artists unfamiliar to Telugu audience is a negative aspect.Satyaraj ,Karthi , Sayesha and all lead actors performed well in this emotional film. Director Pandiraj is succeeded in delivering a decent film, but this caters very strictly for targeted women audience!

Verdict:

Chinnababu first half is decent, second half is stuffed with heavy dose of sentiment scenes. Overall, it isan average fare for targeted family audience and others may find it difficult to absorb the sentiment. This rural family entertainer has some positive elements, only caters to limited section of audience

Telugu360 Rating 2.25/5

Release Date : 13th July, 2018
Director : Pandiraj
Music Director : D. Imman
Producer : Suriya
Starring : Karthi, Sayesha Saigal
