New Release Chart loading in Tollywood

0

The third wave of coronavirus pandemic is all over but the Telugu audience are not scared to watch the films in theatres. Due to the low hospitalization and the death rate, the third wave of the pandemic may not have a strong impact on Indian film industry. But the restrictions on theatres in several states have to be lifted for the pan-Indian movies to hit the screens. A heap of Tollywood films are planned for release from February till May and every week is jam-packed with a prominent release. The chart is now disrupted because of the third wave. Acharya is pushed to April 1st and RRR may release on March 18th or April 28th. Because of these changes, the entire chart of releases in Telugu cinema will be shuffled.

The filmmakers of Tollywood are in plans to announce the new release dates by the end of January or during the first week of February after the wave of pandemic calms down. The makers of Ravi Teja’s Khiladi are keen to release the film on February 11th and Adivi Sesh’s Major release is pushed as it needs a pan-Indian release. The release dates of Radhe Shyam, Bheemla Nayak, Sarkaru Vaari Paata, F3, Ghani, Ramarao On Duty and others will be announced soon. Tollywood is gearing up for a packed summer this year if the third wave calms down soon.

Adivi Sesh completes Hindi dubbing of ‘Major’

0

Actor-director-writer Adivi Sesh, who will be soon seen essaying the role of military hero Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan in the upcoming bilingual film ‘Major’, has been working round the clock and recently completed the film’s dubbing.

Double masked and taking all precautions, the actor ensured that he did not come in contact with many people as he did not wish to delay the process of dubbing. He worked through the weekend.

He says, “There were several work commitments and I know the delay that this whole strain puts on the film and cast and crew who have worked so hard. I wanted to ensure that the Hindi dub went smoothly and I am so happy that it all was okay.”

Describing how he managed to dub amidst the rising Covid infections, he says, “We have a standard policy within our team. Mask up and use common sense. I’m very conscious about my parents’ health, so I always make it a point to avoid crowded situations and to stay masked. To avoid parties on New Year’s Eve felt like common sense. To spend it with family and two friends, who are double vaccinated and careful, made sense. And that’s what I did.”

Inspired by true events, ‘Major’ captures the life and times of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, the brave officer who attained martyrdom while saving the lives of numerous hostages in the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai on November 26, 2008 during the infamous 26/11 attacks.

Maj. Sandeep Unnikrishnan was the first to crack a joke, says actor who plays the braveheart on screen

0

Telugu actor Adivi Sesh, who’s playing the 26/11 martyr, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, in Mahesh Babu’s upcoming film ‘Major’, says the braveheart was not just a fighter, but also had an ever-ready sense of humour.

“You remember his heroics, his firm expression as he stood strong even as Mumbai’s iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel burned,” Adivi Sesh told IANS in an interview. “While researching my character, I realised he was the first to crack a joke even in the most difficult circumstances. He had an extremely captivating smile.”

As a result, the actor said, “we did not have to deliberately bring laughter into the narrative … it flowed in organically”. The film, he pointed out, is not only about the events of 26/11 and the late National Security Guards (NSG) officer’s role in releasing hostages trapped inside the Taj Mahal Palace, but about Major Unnikrishnan’s life and the warmth of his personality.

The actor, who was raised in the US, said he was there when the tragedy of 26/11 unfolded and he saw it on TV. “When I first saw the picture of Major Sandeep, it struck me hard. I felt an instant connection with the photograph, for he resembled some of my cousins. He and I look similar in many ways.”

Continuing with his narrative, the actor said: “It wasn’t just the case of me learning more about a warrior. It was something else. Something about his photo made me keep thinking about him. Going on, I kind of became an admirer to him, which resulted in creating a path to make a movie on his life.”

The film may centre around the two fateful days in the life of Major Unnikrishnan, which the actor said was the most important chapter of the martyr’s life, but it is not only about him.

“Our intention is to present the events from his point of view, but it was important to find an equilibrium and understand that there were so many people who fought that day, many of whom were also killed,” Sesh pointed out.

On being quizzed about the other movies and documentaries being made on the terror attacks, Sesh said some of them were exaggerated.

“I did watch a couple of documentaries and honestly, I think the event was exploited and exaggerated. I believe that when we make a film on the incident, we must not be exploitative,” Sesh affirmed, adding the film’s tight, well-researched script, and Director Shashi Kiran Tikka’s sharp eye for visuals and performances, will enable the crew to deliver the promise.

For his exemplary bravery, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan was awarded the nation’s highest peacetime gallantry award, Ashok Chakra.

A multilingual film scheduled for release in Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi on February 11, 2022, ‘Major’ also stars Saie Manjrekar, Shobhita Dhulipala, Revathi and Prakash Raj.

Adivi Sesh on ‘Major’ release: Important to be seen the right way

0

Actor Adivi Sesh, who is busy wrapping up the final schedule of his upcoming bilingual film “Major”, says that the movie has elements designed for a theatrical release.

He specifies that ideally, he wants the film to be released on the big screen.

“Major”, which is a biopic on 26/11 martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan, was earlier scheduled to release on July 2. However, due to the lockdown, the makers postponed the film.

“To be very honest, we knew that the theatrical was looking kind of shaky around the time we released the teaser. So, it wasn’t a surprise to us. In our mind, if things went well, we would stick to our release schedule, if they didn’t, we knew (we) were prepared with how we would go about it,” Sesh told IANS.

He added: “‘Major’ is a big screen experience first, before anything else. There are so many things that we designed in the film which are meant for the theatre audience.”

The actor believes the right kind of visibility is crucial.

“So, when I know that every market across the country has opened up, that is when we would want to bring ‘Major’ out, the right way. It’s important to be seen the right way, I believe. Especially the whole of this film, especially for me as a fan of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, is to honour him,” he says.

Ever since the lockdown restrictions eased in Telangana, many films have resumed shooting aiming to wrap up their projects.

Sesh says that the team of “Major” doesn’t want to falter at any point just being in a hurry.

“More than me, the team is hell bent on getting it right. There is a certain momentum that the crew has when a film is on roll. If suddenly that stops, you find yourself trying to get the momentum back. So, we are trying to get the momentum back,” says the “Kshanam” actor.

He adds: “We want to do it properly because when the audience is watching the film, they don’t care that the team didn’t shoot for two months because of the pandemic or not. They want to see something that is beautiful and we can’t rush it in a way that compromises the film. Of course, we will try to do it as quickly as possible.”

Besides “Major”, Sesh has “Hit 2” and “Goodachari 2” next.

Saiee M. Manjrekar on signing Telugu films: Language will never be a barrier

0

Actress Saiee M. Manjrekar had a Bollywood debut in the 2019 Salman Khan biggie “Dabangg 3”. She is now looking southward, with two Telugu films lined up — “Major” and “Ghani”.

While “Major” is a bilingual biographical drama, “Ghani” is a sports adventure film. Actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar’ daughter Saiee opened up on her move to enter the Telugu industry.

“For me language will never be a barrier because I want to let my performance speak more. This is a lesson I learnt from my dad that for an actor, language should never be a barrier. It’s the actor’s performance that should do the work,” she says.

“Major” starring Adivi Sesh is a bilingual based on life of 26/11 martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan. Saiee plays the role of Neha, wife of Sesh’s character.

“It wasn’t an informed decision (to sign Telugu films) but the more I thought about it the more it made sense. When I read my character in ‘Major’, I fell in love with it. Some movies you read and you can imagine yourself doing this. The language was secondary. Then “Ghani” also happened. My parents told me that there is so much happening with pan-India films and wherever good work is happening, I should go, ” she says.

On “Dabangg 3”, she says starting in a Salman Khan film had its advantages. “More than doing a Salman Khan film, having him as a mentor is so good. He has been in the industry and has done everything. So, every time I had a question, I knew I have a person to go to and talk of anything, who is well-versed in the industry,” says Saiee.
