0

Fans of megastar Rajinikanth can rejoice as the title of his new film has been revealed as ‘Jailer’ by Sun Pictures.

After teasing fans with an update, the makers of Rajinikanth’s forthcoming drama disclosed the title for the icon’s 169th film on Friday.

The makers also unveiled the first-look title poster, which features a bloodstained sword hanging from the ceiling. Apart from the ferocious weapon, little more has been revealed about the crux.

According to the poster, ‘Jailer’ would be an action drama with music by Anirudh Ravichander.

Despite negative reviews, Nelson Dilipkumar’s previous film ‘Beast,’ starring Vijay, earned well at the box office, so hopes for ‘Jailer’ are high.

‘Jailer’ is Nelson Dilipkumar’s first-ever collaboration with Rajinikanth.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sivakarthikeyan, Priyanka Arul Mohan, Ramya Krishnan, and Yogi Babu have all been said to be in talks for crucial roles.

Kannada superstar Shivarajkumar has also revealed that he is working on the film and that his parts with Rajinikanth will be shot in Bengaluru or Mysuru.

‘Forget Bollywood, even Hollywood can’t afford Rajnikanth!’

1

TV actress Jayashree Venketaramanan has come out in support of Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu on his comments about working in Bollywood.

She says: “Mahesh Babu has been one among my favourite.I know and understand the kind of craze people have for Mahesh Babu. In fact most of us are also aware of the fact that people worship Rajnikanth sir. I have personally seen people have Rajnikanth’s photo kept next to their Gods at home, now you tell who would want to leave such a place, can money buy any of this! So in that sense, honestly forget Mahesh Babu, Bollywood, in fact even Hollywood can’t afford Rajnikanth.”

Recently in a interview when Mahesh Babu answered that Bollywood can’t afford him sparked a controversy. Jayashree feels he is a humble human being.

She adds: “Well if you ask me, I’d like to say that I have seen Mahesh Babu’s interviews in the past too and have never felt that he was arrogant in any way. Even in the latest interview, he started, by saying that ‘this might sound arrogant but I dont think Bollywood can afford me,’ I think what he meant was that the kind of stardom and love he gets there, is incomparable and something that can’t be measured by money, and over the years if you are revered in such a way who would want to go someplace else and start afresh. He is a humble human being.”

Jayashree rose to the fame after essaying the protagonist in popular television show, ‘Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha’ and has also acted in shows like ‘Beend Banoongaa Ghodi Chadhunga’ and ‘Zindagi Khatti Meethi’.

Rajinikanth’s Peddanna Review:

1

Telugu360 Rating: 1.75/5

Superstar Rajinikanth’s next film Annaatthe is dubbed into Telugu as Peddanna. Shiva is the director and Meena, Khushbu, Nayanthara, Keerthy Suresh are the lead actors in Peddanna. Sun Pictures produced this mass entertainer and the film released across the globe today. Here is the review of Peddanna:

Story:

Peddanna is set in the region of Rajole and Peddanna (Rajinikanth) is the President. He loves his sister Kanaka Mahalaxmi (Keerthy Suresh) so much. He starts his hunt for a bridegroom for his sister. His sister makes a promise about her wedding to his brother. He finalizes a guy and plans a grand wedding for his sister. Right before the wedding, Kanaka Mahalaxmi goes missing. He comes to know that she loves a person and leaves his home for him. He comes to know that Kanakam is in Kolkata. Peddanna lands in Kolkata and he gets shocked to see his sister in a bad shape. The rest of Peddanna is all about the real story behind Kanakam’s drastic shape and what happens next. Watch the film to know about the rest.

Analysis:

Peddanna or Annaatthe is a bad script and the story is ages old. There is nothing exciting in the film and has resemblances to Shiva’s Vedhalam that is done with Ajith. Peddanna is an old-fashioned film that is adopted considering Rajinikanth in mind. Superstar’s fans are badly disappointed with his recent films and choices. Peddanna is one more film that is disappointing to the core and has nothing much to get excited about. The elevation shots for Peddanna in Kolkata will leave his fans in delight but the film misses to continue the tempo and hype. There is no logic in the police station episode with Prakash Raj.

Rajinikanth’s dialogues seem like preachings and they miss the magic. Shiva wanted to bring back the vintage Rajinikanth but those episodes never worked. His romance with Meena and Khushbu looks awkward on-screen. Peddanna also misses several logics throughout the film. The bonding between Peddanna and his sister are well presented but she never reveals about her love story to her brother. The entire second half is filled with action which is one-sided. Though the plot was presented as a brother-sister sentiment film, Peddanna is laced with several unwanted stuff. The villains are presented in a powerful manner but they fail to match with Rajinikanth.

Performances:

Rajinikanth looks quite active and energetic on screen. His style and mannerisms impress his fans. Nayanthara has a guest appearance and she looks good on screen. Keerthy Suresh has been good as Rajinikanth’s sister and she did justice for her role. Jagapathi Babu is presented well but his role makes no impact. Prakash Raj too did his part well and all the other actors did their roles well.

Peddanna has nothing new with the script. The screenplay and the dialogues are pretty average. D Imman’s music is quite loud. The songs are just ok. The cinematography work is decent and the production values are grand. Shiva believes in an old-fashioned script and indulged too many unwanted mass elements. This makes Peddanna loud, unimpressive and boring.

Verdict:

Peddanna is one more disappointment from Rajinikanth that fails to make an impact because of the poor script and boring narration.
