Telugu360 was the first to break out the news that Trivikram is floating his own banner and will co-produce films along with Sithara Entertainments. Their first collaboration is announced and young sensation Naveen Polishetty will play the lead role in the film. Trivikram’s wife Sai Sowjanya will be producer and Trivikram’s banner is named Fortune 4 Cinemas. The film will be directed by Kalyan Shankar, a debutant and the shoot commences very soon. The film is said to be a full-length entertainer and this untitled film releases next year. More details will be announced very soon.
After two back-to-back blockbusters like Agent Sai Sreenivas Athreya and Jathi Ratnalu, Naveen Polishetty is in huge demand. The youngster has taken advances from four top production houses of Telugu cinema but he is yet to announce his next film. The actor gave his nod for Sithara Entertainments recently and the project will be announced in a week. Kalyan Sekhar will make his debut with this film and Naveen Polishetty will take Rs 4 crores remuneration.
The youngster took the advance today and the film starts rolling very soon. The other cast and crew members are currently finalized. Naveen Polishetty also signed a film for UV Creations and the project too will be announced very soon.
Young actor Naveen Polishetty impressed the Telugu audience with Agent Sai Sreenivas Athreya. His recent film Jathi Ratnalu is a blockbuster and Naveen Polishetty is rushed with several offers. But the actor is yet to sign his next. There are talks that Naveen Polishetty will soon work with Anushka in her next film but the project seems to have been shelved. As per the latest update, Naveen Polishetty gave his nod for his next film recently.
Kalyan Shankar, a debutant impressed Naveen Polishetty with an interesting idea and the script work of the film is happening currently. Sithara Entertainments will bankroll this prestigious project. Naveen Polishetty also is in talks for the sequel of Jathi Ratnalu and the film will be shot completely in the USA. Anudeep will direct the sequel and Vyjayanthi Movies are the producers.
Naveen Polishetty turned out to be a sensation in Tollywood with two blockbusters: Agent Sai Sreenivas Athreya and Jathi Ratnalu. Naveen Polishetty also rejected a series of films in the recent months and is quite choosy. After the super success of Jathi Ratnalu, the sequel is on cards. Naveen Polishetty gave his nod for the script recently that is narrated by Anudeep KV. The movie is rumored to be set in USA and Naveen Polishetty, Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi will be seen reprising their roles.
As per the update, Naveen Polishetty is said to be charging Rs 3 crores as remuneration for the movie. With the first part ending up as super hit, Naveen decided to cash on the craze. The makers agreed to pay the quoted remuneration for the film. Swapna Cinema will produce the film and the shoot commences early next year.
It was not a smooth sail for Naveen Polishetty in films. He struggled for years and proved his mettle with Agent Sai Sreenivas Athreya. His recent offering Jathi Ratnalu is a smashing hit and the film collected over Rs 40 crores in its final run after it was made on a strict budget of Rs 4 crores. Like other actors, Naveen Polishetty did not sign projects. He is approached by every top production house of Telugu cinema but Naveen Polishetty is yet to sign his next after the release of Jathi Ratnalu. He is said to have rejected a record number of projects.
Two top production houses sent more than half a dozen scripts each for Naveen Polishetty but the actor was not convinced with them. He is committed to these production houses but he is keen to sign a film only after he is completely impressed with the script. Several production houses are trying hard to lock Naveen Polishetty for their upcoming movies. Naveen Polishetty signed a film for UV Creations before the release of Jathi Ratnalu and he will focus on the film from July. For now, Naveen Polishetty is not in a hurry and is not keen to cash on his craze.
Actor Naveen Polishetty’s new Telugu film “Jathi Ratnalu” has received good reception since its release on OTT, but the actor has bigger plans for his pan-India following. Naveen, who made his Bollywood debut playing ‘Acid’ in the 2019 Sushant Singh Rajput-starrer “Chhichhore”, says he wants to deliver good films in as many languages as he can.
“The idea is to be part of films across the country, wherever there is a story I find exciting and wherever there is a filmmaker who wants to cast me. I just want to be the Google translator actor, function in multiple languages. I want to be the ‘Google translator actor’, where the director says, ‘okay, speak in Hindi now’ or ‘okay, deliver dialogues in Telugu or Tamil now’, and I can switch and be able to do it,” Naveen tells IANS.
The actor gained immense popularity with his 2019 Telugu release, “Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya”, so much so that fans had started addressing him as Agent. He feels that the success of his films have opened doors for good stories.
“What ‘Jathi Ratnalu’, ‘Chhichhore’ and ‘Agent…’ have done is basically open doors for so many interesting stories across industries,” he says.
After its theatrical release, “Jathi Ratnalu’ released digitally. “‘Jathi Ratnalu’ is being seen by filmmakers, audiences across India, thanks to Amazon. That divide has been broken. So now if you are a great actor, you can be part of a film from anywhere in India. That’s a great space to be in where audiences are also consuming content from everywhere. A great story can come from any film industry,” says Naveen.
“That’s the beauty of our country that we have such creative minds all across. We are going through the golden age of cinema that creative people can make a great film in any language and with people from any part of the world,” says Naveen, dropping hint that he’ll soon be seen in a Hindi film that is expected to go on floors later this year.
Jathi Ratnalu is reported as one of the biggest hits in Telugu cinema this year. The film was made on a budget of Rs 4 crores and it collected Rs 40 crores in its final run. The film narrated the story of three youngsters of Jogipet who move to Hyderabad and the rest of the film is all about the fun generated around the youngsters. The film’s director Anudeep KV revealed that he would direct the sequel soon. As per the update, we hear, the sequel is set in USA and it narrates the story of these three youngsters in the backdrop of USA. The entire filming would be done in USA.
Naveen Polishetty and Anudeep discussed about the basic plot of the sequel recently. The initial decision about the sequel has been taken. Before this, Anudeep and Naveen Polishetty will work together on one more interesting project that will be announced soon. Once they are done with this project, the sequel for Jathi Ratnalu will kick-start. After the super success of Jathi Ratnalu, Naveen Polishetty is in huge demand and the youngster also hiked his remuneration. He is yet to announce his next film for now.

Dil Raju happens to be one of the most successful producers of Telugu cinema. He is producing several big-ticket and small films which will release soon. Dil Raju recently met young actors Naveen Polishetty, Vaisshnav Tej and locked them for his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations. Both Vaisshnav Tej and Naveen Polishetty scored smashing hits this year and are in demand. Though the scripts and the directors are yet to be finalized, Dil Raju locked them by paying advances.
The ace producer is now in the hunt for the right scripts and directors for these young actors. If things fall in the right place, both these films may start next year. Vaisshnav Tej signed close to 4 films that are in various stages of pre-production. After the super success of Jathi Ratnalu, Naveen Polishetty is yet to announce his next film officially.
It was not an easy road for Naveen Polishetty in Telugu cinema. He has done small roles in several Telugu films but did not get recognition. Naveen Polishetty surprised the Hindi crowds with his comic timing in ‘All India Bakchod’. His videos on YouTube gained immense popularity and he soon bagged an opportunity with Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya. The film is a decent hit and Naveen Polishetty surprised the audience in an interesting role in Chhichhore.
After rejecting several scripts, Naveen Polishetty tested his luck with Jathi Ratnalu and the film is now a sensational hit. Naveen Polishetty’s comic timing is the highlight of the film and the youngster is in huge demand. A top production house sent six scripts to Naveen Polishetty and the actor politely rejected them. This tells that Naveen Polishetty is quite particular and is not in a hurry. Instead of signing back to back projects and cashing up the craze of Jathi Ratnalu success, Naveen Polishetty should focus on picking up unique scripts so that he would end up as a star in Telugu cinema soon.
Superstar Mahesh Babu doesn’t sit idle but encourages the people with talent every time. He showered praises on Cricketer Mithali Raj on her achievement today. While the girl is surprised and Mahesh fans are feeling happy about it, he made another tweet on actors of Jathi Ratnalu, the recently released film which is flying high.
Mahesh Babu took to Twitter and said that Naveen Polishetty is “Absolute ripper”! He reminded his interaction with Naveen on the sets of the film ‘One’. He called the young actor as quiet, intriguing, and hard working. Also, Mahesh said that he knew long back that Naveen has a spark in him.
Finally, he congratulated the entire team and said he enjoyed the film heartfully. Needless to say, Naveen will be overwhelmed with Mahesh’s tweet. However, he is yet to respond on it. Meanwhile, Priyadarshi, who is one of the key actors in Jathi Ratnalu, thanked Mahesh Babu.
Remember vaguely interacting with @NaveenPolishety on the sets of 'One'! Came across as quiet, intriguing, and hardworking.. Knew the boy had a spark! Well.. he just blew my mind away!! Sensational acting.. Absolute ripper!! 👏👏👏

Jathi Ratnalu movie review
Telugu360 Rating: 3/5
Jathi Ratnalu is creating ripples all over with the fun quotient. The trailer is fresh and thoroughly entertaining. The opening numbers for this small film are exceptional and it even dominated other releases. Jathi Ratnalu is directed by a debutant Anudeep and has Naveen Polishetty, Priyadarshi and Rahul Ramakrishna played the lead roles. Nag Ashwin produced the film on Swapna Cinema banner. Here is the review of Jathi Ratnalu:
Jathi Ratnalu is the story of Srikanth (Naveen Polishetty) and his friends Ravi (Rahul Ramakrishna) and Sekhar (Priyadarshi). All these three are fun-loving guys and are not bothered about their careers. One fine day, Srikanth decides to move to the city and his friends follow him. The trio lands in trouble for attempting a murder on a MLA. The rest of Jathi Ratnalu is all about how they clear all these problems and settle in life. Watch Jathi Ratnalu to know about the twists:
The audience will have to strictly leave the logic behind before entering the auditorium. Jathi Ratnalu is fun-filled, hilarious and is packed with entertainment throughout. Right from the first frame, the film looks hilarious. Naveen Polishetty is a gem and his comic timing is top class. Priyadarshi and Rahul Ramakrishna are quite supportive. The first half is well-packed and sets good premises for the second half.
The second half of the film maintains the same tempo though some of the episodes are dragged and slow-paced. The hilarious climax takes the film to the next level. The trio outshines throughout the film. One will just laugh and laugh ignoring the logic. The three songs are well picturized and the makers should have focused on the production values as they are extremely poor. Jathi Ratnalu is a hilarious ride and is focused completely on fun.
Naveen Polishetty is a gem of an actor and a Superstar is in making if he chooses the right scripts. He carried the entire film with his comic timing alone. Priyadarshi and Rahul Ramakrishna did their parts perfectly. All the scenes of the trio will generate enough laughs. The court scenes are shot well and the audience will be thrilled with Brahamanandam’s episodes. Faria looks good though she looks aged. Her smile and her expressions are her biggest strengths. Murali Sharma, Naresh and Vennela Kishore are good among the other actors.
Jathi Ratnalu has a lean plot and it is laced completely with entertainment. Please do not search for the logic and go with the flow. The dialogues, one-liners are the major highlights of Jathi Ratnalu. The music is good and the background score is decent. All the other technical aspects are good. The production values are not up to the expectations. The makers should have spent more to make the film colorful. Anudeep makes a grand debut with Jathi Ratnalu.
‘ Jathi Ratnalu ‘ is a good comedy film to watch . This film doesn’t not appear logical at times but it scores good at providing ‘ entertainment’ . You may watch it !

Naveen Polisetty, Priyadarshi and Rahul Ramakrishna play lead roles in upcoming hilarious entertainer Jathi Ratnalu directed by Anudeep KV under Swapna Cinema. Radhan has rendered soundtracks and lyrical video of first single Chitti from the film is unveiled today.
The song is all about Naveen Pilisetty expressing his contentment of being in love with his girl played by Faria Abdullah and the small happiness he finds in her presence. The singing of Ram Miriyala as well as the composition by Radhan are just superb. It’s an enjoyable number with quirky lyrics by Ramajogayya Sastry. Naveen steals the show with his witty acts.
Although the makers of the film haven’t yet disclosed the release date, they have announced to release it very soon.
The team Jathi Ratnalu released a teaser to introduce first lead character of the film played by Naveen Polishetty who celebrates his birthday today. Essays the role of a prisoner named Jogipet Srikanth, Naveen is seen as a jailbird who speaks like a rebel, but in reality he is a lazy and useless guy.
The 25 second video is funny with Naveen Polishetty’s witty acts. Apparently, they will release two more teasers soon to introduce Priyadarshi Pulikonda and Rahul Ramakrishna who will be seen in other two lead roles.
Anudeep K V is directing the film while Nag Ashwin is producing it under the banner of Swapna Cinema. The makers have announced to release the film in theatres very soon.

A source close to the team of the film tells us that the film will have hilarious episodes involving the three actors. The plot of the film will be set in Sangareddy, Telangana and will have the characters speaking the local accent. Director Anudeep is said to have penned an unusual screenplay for Jathi Ratnalu which will be his second film. The film is being made on a low budget and will also star actors like Tanikella Bharani and Vennela Kishore in brief roles.
Hyderabad-born Naveen Polishetty is a popular face in the digital world because of his successful stint with the hit comedy series in All India Bakchod and other successful series like Honest Indian Weddings, Chinese Bhasad and Man’s Best Friend. Even though he played guest appearances in films like 1 Nennokkadine and Life is Beautiful, Naveen gained much recognition from the audience for his witty performances in short films. Now, he made a dream debut as lead actor in Tollywood with the latest release Agent Sai Srinivas Atreya which is receiving appreciation from all quarters.
Naveen Polishetty’s humorous performance with impressive comedy timing has been the talk among audience after the release of ASSA last Friday. All sections of audience got connected to his simple yet entertaining role and praising him to the core.

US audience have lapped up the film big time as it collected decent revenues in the first weekend.
With a promising debut, which is surely going to grab the attention of filmmakers, Naveen Polishetty might look to carve out a niche for himself in Telugu cinema. He is definitely here to stay.
Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya Review
Telugu360 Rating 3/5
Actor Naveen Polishetty, who featured in various web series, is making his debut as a hero with Agent Sai Srinivasa Atreya, a humorous detective thriller set in the backdrop of Nellore. Made on a shoestring budget by director Swaroop RSJ, the film stars a bunch of new actors.
A happy-go-lucky detective Athreya runs Fathima Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Nellore. He makes a living from resolving petty cases,until tasked with a murder mystery to crack. When Athreya temporarily landed in jail, takes up his jail mate’s daughter missing case which in turn pushes him into much bigger net. How Athreya unravels the mystery surrounding the unidentified dead bodies is rest of the story
Core point of this film has never been discussed earlier in films. It has been smartly layered under a regular murder mystery plot. Story takes off as a regular petty cases investigation one, gets into a serious problem. The investigation of three murder cases, screenplay with layered suspects are interesting. First half of the film is of shorter duration, still a bit boring. In Second half, after the real investigation starts, the film is engaging for a while. However, the core point gets redundant after some point. Having 145 minutes of runtime without song breaks is a concern. However, the climax is good which gives a positive feeling while coming out of the theatre.
Direction by Swaroop RSJ is neat. While he has shown strength in refreshing theme, His drawback is over simplifying the things. Mark K Robin’s music is okay. Camerawork is patchy and may be result of poor production values. Screenplay by Naveen and Swaroop is neat.
Naveen Polishetty as detective ‘ SaiSrinivasaAthreya’ is biggest asset of the film. His natural performance, ease in dialogue delivery are refreshing to watch on Telugu film screen. TFI found new raw talent in form of Naveen. New actress Shrutisharma plays his assistant in FBI-Nellore. She fits the bill of an assistant to the detective. Youtuber Suhaas played a role of another detective from FBI- Hasan. He is adequate.
- Naveen Polishetty performance
- Agent Athreya’s witty characterization
- Core Story
- Mystery in second half
- Boring first half
- Length – 145 minutes without songs
- Over simplifying the things
Agent sai srinivasa ‘ is a whodunnit genre film that may appeal to new generation . It is suspenseful, smartly screen played one. Hero of the film Naveen polishetty shines in the title role, characterization is unique in recent times. On flipside , first half is boring.
