Package deals to Directors – The peril to TFI.

‘Package Deal’ – this is the term exploited the most by once-top directors. When these directors hit rough patch, they can’t command the remuneration they used to get in their hey days. In such scenarios, instead of slashing their remuneration, they opt for ‘package deals’, which is proving to be an insidious trend.

Take the case of Puri Jagannath-Balayya’s ‘Paisa Vasool’. The director was allotted Rs 35 budget (including remunerations and excluding publicity) to wrap up the film. Puri wasn’t given a fixed remuneration, and his total pay would be as much as he could save from those 35 Cr.

The makers boasted of wrapping up the film in 78 working days. Finishing a top hero’s film in such short time is a feat that no one but only Puri can accomplish. Movie lovers may think it is because of Puri’s jet speed of film making but those who understand the intricacies of film making, know very well that the accomplishment is a result of director having his eye on money only.

Puri is an expert in utilizing package deals. In Paisa Vasool, except Shriya and Ali, there were no other big names. Even the crew wasn’t much demanding. Three songs were canned in the sets only. The unit filmed only chasing sequences and fights in Portugal, which was done over a period of 40 days. And, the entire remaining film was shot over less than 40 days in sets in Hyderabad. No wonder audiences were shocked at the film’s quality.

Buzz in film cirlces is that Puri took away home no less than Rs 10 crore with Paisa Vasool. In such case, ‘Paisa Vasool’ title is more apt to the director than the film. The producer isn’t complaining as he recovered his investment in the form of film’s decent pre-release business. We need to wait for a few more days to see whether distributors can Vasool their Paisa.

VV Vinayak and Sai Dharam Tej’s new film is also a package deal for 25 Cr.

Paisa Vasool – Script rejected by Tarak and Chiru??

0

Before getting the nod of Balayya for Paisa Vasool, director Puri Jagannath faced two big rejections, from Megastar Chiranjeevi and NTR Jr. After watching Paisa Vasool, movie lovers say that the senior Mega hero and junior Nandamuri hero were perfectly correct in turning down the mediocre script narrated by Puri. It is heard that Paisa Vasool is the same script that the ‘Pokiri’ maker had narrated to Chiru and NTR.

It may be recalled that before locking Katthi remake, Puri’s ‘Auto Jaani’ was announced as Megastar Chiranjeevi’s comeback film. The project however was called off, and Chiru himself revealed in an interview that he wasn’t satisfied with the second half narrated by Puri.

After the success of ‘Temper’, NTR gave his word to Puri to work with him in another film. Honoring his word, NTR held rounds of discussions with Puri after Janatha Garage. The director however couldn’t convince the actor with his scripts, the subject of ‘Paisa Vasool’ was one of them.

Balayya on the other hand gave his nod to Puri even without listening to the story. He was so impressed by the hero’s characterization that he didn’t bother about the story, which is a rehash of Puri’s earlier movies, mainly ‘Pokiri’.

Now, as ‘Paisa Vasool’ is in theatres, people can understand why the story was rejected by Chiru and NTR.

Paisa Vasool for Balayya and Puri

0

We need to wait for a few more days to find out if Balakrishna Nandamuri and Puri Jagannath’s ‘Paisal Vasool’ will justify its title and make the Producer and all buyers happy. Meanwhile, we have information that the action entertainer is a true ‘Paisa Vasool’ film for both the senior Nandamuri hero and the crazy director.

The total budget of Paisa Vasool is 35 Cr. Of it, Puri took 10 Cr as his fee for providing story, screenplay and direction. The fact that Puri wraps up films at jet speed, incurring very reasonable production cost, might also have convinced producers to shell out this huge amount. Actress Charmee, who is a partner in Puri Connects, was paid Rs 1 Cr for her services. Both Kyra Dutt and Muskan Sethi were supplied by Puri Connects.

Balayya usually charges 5 Cr for a film. However, he was paid Rs 10 Cr remuneration for Paisa Vasool. This is the highest remuneration he has ever taken for a film. Since the film’s producers, Bhavya Creations, have interests in different businesses, and as they seek the support of Andhra Pradesh govt. they didn’t mind paying the double the remuneration to Balayya, who is an MLA and a close aide and relative of CM Chandrababu Naidu. Another reason could be Balayya’s commitment. It was heard earlier that despite Puri wanted to produce Paisa Vasool, Balayya gave the film to Bhavya Creations honoring his word given to the producer a couple of years ago.

On the whole, both Balayya and Puri themselves pocketed 55-60 percent of the film’s total budget.
