14 Reels Plus Vs Sharwanand : Producer’s version

0

It is known that, hero Sharwanand sent notices to producers of his last film Sreekaram over his pending remuneration.
Earlier it was said that producers of 14 Reels Plus offered post-dated cheques for the remaining amount of Rs 2 crore But buzz in the industry is that the actual amount is only 1 Crore.

Furthermore, the producers due to financial crunch under current unfavourable situations requested Sharwanand to give them little more time till the pandemic situations become stable & normal. But the actor was reluctant & deposited the cheques.

Sources close to 14 Reels say that though the producers had every right to deny the remaining part of remuneration as the Movie Artists Association very clearly said that all Artists are willing to reduce 20% of remuneration because of the current pandemic situations which makes the balance Nil towards Sharwanand’s remuneration.But still the producers didn’t want any controversies & obliged to pay the balance as the hero insisted.

Now the producers of 14 Reels Plus are deeply upset with the behaviour of the hero & more so because of the false claims being circulated by his camp.

Sreekaram Controversy: Two different versions pop up

1

Sharwanand is one of the non-controversial actors of Telugu cinema. The entire Tollywood was left in shock after the actor slapped legal notices to his producers 14 Reels Plus. After the news broke out, there are several stories cooked around the issue. The producers offered post-dated cheques and the actor deposited them after repeated calls. Ram Achanta and Gopi Achanta never responded to Sharwa’s calls after the film’s release. Sharwanand feels that he was cheated as they failed to honour their promise.

Ram Achanta and Gopi Achanta have a different version to say. They say that the project got delayed after Sharwanand flew to USA without completing the film’s shoot. They suffered losses through the project because of the delay in the shoot and due to the bad theatrical run. But close sources to Sharwanand said that the makers made decent profits even before the film’s release and they did not settle the payment after the release. There are two completely different arguments coming out after the controversy saw light. We have to wait to see if the issue will be settled outside the court or if turns bigger.

Sreekaram Controversy: Sharwanand Vs 14 Reels Plus

0

Young actor Sharwanand impressed the audience with his performance in Sreekaram that released right before the second wave of coronavirus. Sreekaram is a social drama that discusses the importance of the farmers in this modern world. Debutant Kishore directed the movie and Ram Achanta, Gopi Achanta produced Sreekaram on 14 Reels Plus banner. Though the film received a positive response from the audience, the film did not have a decent theatrical run. Sharwanand was promised Rs 6 crores as remuneration for the movie and the makers kept Rs 2 crores pending before the release. The actor requested to clear his dues but the makers could repay only Rs 50 lakhs recently after the film’s release.

After repeated attempts, Sharwanand lost his cool and slapped notices to the makers for the pending Rs 1.5 crores. The news turned out to be a sensation across the Tollywood circles for now. 14 Reels Plus are yet to respond to the controversy. On the work front, Sharwanand is shooting for Maha Samudram directed by Ajay Bhupathi. 14 Reels Plus is co-producing Mahesh Babu’s upcoming movie Sarkaru Vaari Paata that will release next year.

Wake up Sharwanand

0

Sharwanand is one of the most promising actors of Telugu cinema. After a series of duds, his recent offering Sreekaram received a positive response but the collections are not encouraging. Going with the trend, Sreekaram will fall short of reaching the breakeven zone in its final run. The family crowds loved the film but Sreekaram is lagging behind in the post-release promotions. Sharwanand is not spotted anywhere around as the first weekend is quite crucial for any film. Jathi Ratnalu is dominating the box-office and at this time, Sharwanand should have stepped out to promote Sreekaram aggressively so that the film would reach widely.

Sreekaram is a feel-good film and a social drama that narrates the importance of farming and farmers in this modern world. The second half is quite emotional and the dialogues are good. Kishore directed the film and Sharwanand, Priyanka Mohan played the lead roles. 14 Reels Plus are the producers. Sharwanand is busy with Maha Samudram that will release in August. Its high time for the actor to focus much on the post-release promotions for his upcoming projects.

Sharwanand’s Sreekaram Movie Review: A Decent Attempt

1

Sreekaram Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.75/5

Young actor Sharwanand never failed as an actor though his attempts failed. The actor picked up Sreekaram which is a film on farmers and their struggles. B Kishore makes his debut with Sreekaram and Priyanka Arul Mohan is the leading lady. Rao Ramesh, Sai Kumar and Naresh played other prominent roles in this social drama. Mickey J Meyer is the music director and 14 Reels Plus are the producers. Sreekaram is releasing across the globe today and here is the complete review of the film:

Story:

Sreekaram is the story of Karthik (Sharwanand), a software professional working for a top IT firm. He is well bonded with his father Keshavulu (Rao Ramesh), a farmer. He clears the debts of his father and one fine day, he decides to quit his profession and joins farming. His love interest Chaita (Priyanka Mohan) and her father try hard but Karthik picks up farming. The rest of Sreekaram is all about uniting the farmers, finding new techniques and how Karthik makes farming easy and feasible. Watch the film to know about Karthik’s take on farming.

Analysis:

Farming turned out to be a gamble and most of the farmers are opting out for other professions after tasting losses. Unable to bear the burdens of the debts, several farmers even committed suicides in the country. Some of them are facing issues of electricity and pesticides too. Sreekaram is an attempt which discusses about the problems of farmers. Sreekaram reveals about united farming, live farming. The film also sends a strong message that farmers are the future of the country and agriculture would be the trend of the future.

The film also has all the commercial ingredients stuffed and they never go overboard. Sreekaram is an emotional attempt and narrates about the bonding between a father and his son. There are several youngsters who shift to cities but struggle to lead a peaceful life. Sreekaram even discusses about the lives of such youngsters. The lives of the people in villages are well presented on screen through this film.

The real story of Sreekaram starts after Karthik returns back to his village. The real challenges start here as the director has to convince the audience about the paths chosen by Karthik. All these episodes are convincing and are packed with emotions. He invents new techniques to make farming easy and sustainable. The climax episodes are completely engaging and the struggles of farmers are well discussed. Some of the episodes look dramatic and the film is slow-paced at times.

Performances:

Sharwanand is one of the finest actors of this generation. The actor shines in the role of Karthik and he looks good in traditional attire. He performed well in the emotional episodes and looked natural. Priyanka Arul Mohan does her part well and the love track looks decent. Rao Ramesh is the other highlight of Sreekaram and he delivered his best as usual. Naresh does one more impressive role. Saikumar plays Ekambaram with perfection and he has a role with negative shades. Satya’s comic timing is good. All the other actors did their roles well.

Sreekaram is a film on farmers and is an emotional attempt. The dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra play a major role in the script. The screenplay is good and the dialogues elevated the film. Yuvraj’s camera work should be discussed specially and the visuals are very good. Mickey J Meyer does justice for the songs and the background score. 14 Reels Plus should be appreciated for backing such a good attempt. Debutant Kishore has enough clarity on Sreekaram and delivers an impressive work.

Verdict:

Sreekaram is a decent attempt on farming and is an emotional tale. Sharwanand comes out with one more new attempt which is impressive.

Why did Nani reject Sreekaram?

0

Natural Star Nani was the first choice for Sreekaram that featured Sharwanand in the lead role. The film is completely based on the lives of farmers and is about the modern techniques adapted by a youngster who picks up farming over a bright career in IT. The film’s director B Kishore narrated the script of Sreekaram to Nani initially. Though the actor was convinced with the script he could not step into the role.

There are speculations that the film resembled Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi which is untrue. Nani had other commitments and he could not sign Sreekaram. It was then the makers approached Sharwanand and got an immediate nod from the actor. The film is releasing today and is carrying decent expectations. Sharwanand and Priyanka Mohan played the lead roles in Sreekaram. 14 Reels Plus produced Sreekaram.

Superstars Come in Support of Sharwanand’s Sreekaram

1

Young Hero Sharwanand’s Sreekaram is getting support from all quarters as it nears the release tomorrow. After the support of Megastar Chiranjeevi and Minister KTR, it is the turn of Young Rebel Star Prabhas and Mega Powerstar Ram Charan. They took to social media to send their best wishes to the team for tomorrow.

“For Sharwanand, my brother! All the best…Watched a sneak peek of #Sreekaram and I loved it. Best wishes to the entire team,” Prabhas posted on his Facebook page.

“It’s brave of Sharwa to take such a noble thought to the masses. #Sreekaram is a perfect blend of all emotions backed by heartwarming performances. It’s a must-watch film for everyone with their friends & family,” Ram Charan posted on Twitter.

Sreekaram carries a good message about the importance of Agriculture. It is a subject that is too relevant to our times when farmers are shying away from getting their sons into their own noble profession. The movie with such a noble message definitely deserves the support it is getting.

Tax exemption discussions for Sreekaram

0

Sreekaram is a film on farmers and it narrates the problems faced by farmers and the modern techniques that are introduced in farming. The trailer and the songs are promising and Telangana Minister KTR attended the pre-release event as Chief Guest. He appreciated the efforts of the entire team of Sreekaram. Talented director Harish Shankar during the event requested KTR to consider tax exemption for Sreekaram as the farmers and their welfare are on top priority for the Telangana government.

KTR promised that he would consider tax exemption but he said that the time to take the call is too little. It would be good if the government of Telangana considers offering tax exemption for films like Sreekaram as there would be more attempts in the future in Telugu cinema. Sreekaram is directed by B Kishore and Sharwanand, Priyanka Arul Mohan played the lead roles. 14 Reels Plus are the producers and the film releases tomorrow.
