Nikhil Asks for Swamy Ra Ra Sequel!


Though Nikhil Siddharth was introduced to Tollywood in 2003, he doesn’t get a break until Sekhar Kammula’s Happy Days got released. However, he is not the only hero in the film!

As a complete hero, he gained popularity with the film Swamy Ra Ra which was released in 2014. Today, the film has completed 8 years and on the occasion, many people poured in their wishes to Nikhil and the movie team.

Nikhil too made a tweet asking director Sudheer Varma for a sequel! “8 years since #SwamyRara Released. Will we get back for another instalment @sudheerkvarma??” tweeted Nikhil.

The actor is currently working on Karthikeya 2 which is being directed by Chandoo Mondeti who earlier directed the first part. The first glimpse which was released sometime back got a great response. And now, our hero is asking for Swamy Ra Ra’s sequel. It seems Nikhil wants to do sequels to reduce the risk quotient!

Minor Injuries to Nikhil on Sets!

Kirrak Party Review : College fun

Kirrak Party Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.75/5


Kirrak Party has a wafer-thin story. This film is about life of students in engineering college which starts with first year of protagonist Krishna & friends and ends with their farewell party. In between this fun intended story, a short love track and another emotional track have been inserted. Focused on sweet memories and bitter experiences of any engineering student, Kirrak Party is scenes driven screenplay.


Nikhil Siddharth is impressive as Krishna, with dual shades. As the man who falls in love with senior first, then with junior girl in college he performed well. Simran Pareenja as Meera is very suitable for the role. The other heroine Samyuktha hegde as Satya got very limited role and is not so impressive. Krishna’s friends casting is adequate, as they did not prefer for seasoned artists which resulted some freshness into the characters.


Kirrak party begins with beaten to death college scenes but narrated with enough humour for first one hour into the film. It is a journey back to engineering college days. With ragging in hostels, fights with seniors, full attendance to glamorous female lecturers’ classes and Answer sheets replacement etc. episodes it is an out and out dejavu feeling for a while. This film has some elements inspired from premam, Autograph and 3-idiots. The comparison with those films ends here, but not in overall impact. Some scenes are written fresh, but Kirrak party gets repetitive after a point. Though comedy is good in parts, its not a laugh riot. The self-discovery part of Krishna, driven by Meera is the best part of the film but it lasts for shorter duration. The humanitarian angle towards a sex-worker thread has been done well.

Had the characterization of Krishna been strongly written, final impact would have been better. Jovial krishna gets serious in life after a key incident, but that serious characterization dilutes as the film progress. The transformations, emotions are not captured as they’re supposed. May be in the Kannada version of this film, they might have succeeded. Another improvement area for this telugu version is ‘nativity’. In Karnataka, there will be a very good mix of out of state students in every college. Hence the tamil group of students, their rivalry with hero etc. scenes fit Kannada nativity but retaining them to Telugu version has not been done properly. Songs picturization which is very key for college backdrop stories is also another downside of this film


  • Humor in first One hour, partly in second half
  • Decent songs


  • Inconsistent comedy graph
  • No high moments
  • Lack of conflict in the story


Technically this film has less strengths to talk about. Ajaneesh Loknath music which has been retained as is from Kannada version is good in parts. DamDare song is the hit one, remaining songs are situational ones. The songs are of melody genre and flow with the story narration. Photography is very inconsistent. Production values by AK entertainments are nearly adequate, could have been better.


Kirrak Party is entertaining in many parts which are based on engineering college life, though they are ain’t a ribtickling comedy. Start to end this film is based on college days only. Hero characterization and Comedy graphs are bit inconsistent and lack author backing.
Overall, it is an OK film for the targeted audience.

My love for films has kept me away from the love of my life: Nikhil

Nikhil Siddharth Kirrak Party Interview

It’s been a hectic few days for Nikhil. The jam-packed schedule of promoting his upcoming film might as well have taken a toll on him. But that’s not the case! Even though it is late in the night at 12 am, the young star is in high spirits, and becomes all the more enthusiastic when you begin talk about the upcoming film.

“I don’t think I have been as excited and nervous about any film in the past. I haven’t slept properly in over five days. The stakes are very high for me with this film. One is the emotional connect that I have developed with Kirrak Party. You know, it’s just that when you love something or someone too much, you just want the best to happen in that regard. I have loved every film I have done but I have to confess that I have never enjoyed working on any film this much!” he explains.

It’s interesting how Nikhil was not even keen to work on the film in the first place. Notably, the actor has never been part of remakes before and this is the first time in his career of over around 11 years, he has taken up a remake (of Kannada film Kirik Party), and he sure seems happy he did. “I was not convinced about the film. In fact, when Anil Sunkara garu asked me to watch the film, I did it only as a formality with the clear intention of saying no in any case. However, the first few moments of the film drew me in, and I was convinced that I had to do this film,” he reveals. Well, it’s quite a big deal then, that he has become so attached to the film, that he may not have even been a part of in the first place!

“Kirrak Party has explored the college life of students from a setup in places like Vijayawada or probably even smaller towns. Nikhil really loved being part of the film because for the first time he got to play himself, full-fledgedly”

Having made a successful debuted with Happy Days in 2007, this is the first time since then that Nikhil took up another role as a full-fledged college student and he tells us that it has been all a major dose of memories. “This film was a trip down the lane of nostalgia for me! First, it took me back to my college days when I was a student in Osmania University and had a blast. We’d taken our own trip the police station, even though it wasn’t on a serious note. And of course the squabbles between the seniors and juniors. I have seen it all in real life, and bringing it into life was amazing for me,” he explains, adding, “Shooting in a college atmosphere also reminded me of the days I worked on Happy Days and how I was a struggling nobody then. I really have come a long way.”

It’s endearing to see Nikhil talk about anything related to Kirrak Party, While in one breath he’s gushing about the group of friends he’s made for life, in another he gushes over how cute his co-star Simran Pareenja is. Well, he’s got ample praise for Samyuktha Hegde too, who he thinks is one hell of a performer. But underlining it all is something else that Nikhil likes about the film. “It is a fun film at the heart, no doubt. But I love the message that the film aims to give – the need to respect women. It’s been dealt with so wonderfully and I am quite proud of being part of such a film,” he states, even as he adds that the film will be a bundle of memories for most people who miss their days of college. While the original was a long film of around three hours, director Sharan Koppisetty and team reworked the film, retaining its essence to shorten it to a little less than two and a half hours.

The angle of romance was quite spoken about in the original and Nikhil suggests this film too has some beautiful moments. “Some sequences have been shot so beautifully, I can’t wait for people to see them. My favourite moment in the film is this beautiful shot between Simran and I, shot on a rooftop,” he shares.

And what with the romance in his own life? Did he have his own share of love stories back in college. “Ah, that’s a tough one. I should tell you my busy film schedules have always played spoilsport and possible romances always ended up in break ups. It’s probably not easy for a girl to understand or adjust with the kind of life I life. Maybe it would be safe to say that my love for films has kept me away from the love of my life,” he states thoughtfully.

KirrakParty Teasing Trailer: A typical college drama on cards


KirrakParty Teasing Trailer

Young actor Nikhil Siddharth carved out a niche for himself by selecting novel scripts. He is now coming up with a youthful college drama Kiraak Party which is the official remake of Kannada hit Kirik Party. The first teaser of the film has been unveiled today evening.

Just above a minute, the teaser is fully packed with youthful elements that hint the film is going to be a typical college drama a’ la Happy Days with a tinge of mass backdrop. This teaser gives a sense of Déjà Vu for viewers as there have been numerous films before with similar college backdrop. The settings are also very simple and the mass background song adds some masala to the teaser.

Nikhil is impressive with his devil-may-care attitude and his trademark histrionics might be the USP for the film.

Though there is nothing so exciting in the teaser, it shows that the film is aimed largely at younger generation audience. What remains to be seen is if the entertaining elements and the changes in the script to suit the Telugu sensibilities come in handy to match the expectations of audience here.

Directed by Sharan Kopisetty, the film has Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead.
