42

When the whole Tollywood responded donating to battle coronavirus, young sensation Vijay Devarakonda stood calm and did not respond though he was trolled. The actor today posted a video explaining about the current critical situation. Vijay Devarakonda announced a donation of Rs 1.25 crores to battle coronavirus. Here are the highlights from his speech:

I have 35 employees working which include my personal staff, production team and others who take care of the charity for ‘The Devarakonda Foundation’. I am running out of funds currently.

I picked up two issues: Immediate Requirements and Future Requirements. Speaking about Future Requirements, it is like getting employment for the youth in the coming days after the crisis comes to an end. The real battle starts after the crisis. Lot of employees lost their jobs. We are going to address the issue.

I started a secret project last year and among the received applications, my team zeroed in 50 students from 650 and they are trained in the requested professional courses. With the coronavirus crisis, their plans got delayed. Two of them are placed successfully and we are quite confident that all the other 48 too will get placed soon.

I am donating Rs 1 crore for employment generation. We will take more students and get them trained in their interested skills. All the donated money will be used for youth employment program. I am also in plans to create employment opportunities through Rowdy Wear and King of the Hill.

I am also donating Rs 25 lakhs for all those who are in immediate need. We are in plans to donate the basic essentials for 2000 families across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. All those who are in immediate need can visit our website ‘thedeverakondafoundation.org’ and we have all the details in the portal. I request all those who are in real need to visit the website. I also thank Telangana government for their efficient work in helping the people across the state in this tough time.

With the shoots stalled, all my films are delayed and I am workless currently. I have lent some amount from my friends to help the needy. I will pay them back once I turn busy with work.

World Famous Lover remake on Cards

0

Vijay Devarakonda was shattered with the debacle of World Famous Lover. The film is named as the biggest disaster in the actor’s career. He is badly criticized for his choice of films in the recent times. Bollywood top filmmaker Karan Johar is keen to remake World Famous Lover in Hindi. He watched the film and Karan felt that the film would work for the Hindi audience. It is unclear about the lead actors and the crew members of the remake as of now.

Karan Johar is sharing a close bonding with Vijay Devarakonda and he is launching him in Bollywood with Fighter that is directed by Puri Jagannadh. Strong speculations are on that Karan will continue to mentor Vijay and establish him in Bollywood. Karan Johar earlier acquired the remake rights of Dear Comrade too but the film was not made in Hindi after it performed poor at the Tollywood box-office.

Will Vijay Devarakonda compensate for WFL Losses?

0

With the sudden rise of fame of Vijay Devarakonda, several producers rushed to lock the actor for their next films. Veteran producer KS Rama Rao who has been idle from the past few years planned a romantic entertainer with Vijay Devarakonda in the lead role. The actor was offered hefty remuneration but unfortunately, World Famous Lover failed to generate the needed buzz. Slowly Vijay Devarakonda took things into his control and there are strong speculations that some of the episodes were shot again by Vijay himself.

The release was pushed and KS Rama Rao had no control over the finances. World Famous Lover took a decent start but the day two numbers are shockingly low. Right before the release, Vijay Devarakonda took his remuneration home. KS Rama Rao is said to be losing huge money for the film. We have to wait to see if Vijay Devarakonda compensates for the losses or if he will stay away from meeting KS Rama Rao. Vijay is currently in Mumbai shooting for the second schedule of Puri Jagannadh’s Fighter.

World Famous Lover – A Crazy Convoluted Love Story

world famous lover review

Telugu360 Rating 2.5/5

Vijay Devarakonda’s tryst with love stories continues as he is set to entertain audience with a similar genre in World Famous Lover which is releasing this Friday amid decent expectations. Directed by Kranthi Madhav of Malli Malli Idhi Rane Roju fame, it will see Vijay romancing four heroines.

The hard-hitting trailers and teasers have drawn comparisons with Arjun Reddy, but he has clarified that WFL is a different attempt that will woo all sections of audience.

Let’s find out what Vijay Deverakonda has in store with this film

Story:

Disputes arise between a live-in relationship couple – Gautam ( Vijay Deverakonda) , Yamini ( Raashi Khanna).  Yamini supports her job-less partner Gautam to fulfill his dream of becoming a writer, but gets vexed after one and half year. As Yamini goes out of relation, Gautam starts writing a book named ‘World Famous Lover‘.  As he writes down three different love stories, the film showcases us those stories enacted. World Famous Lover is an interesting and different storyline

Analysis:

Director K. Kranthi Madhav who is known for making sensible films, this time shocks audience with his bold version of urbane couple in initial episodes. The liberal usage of F word by the heroine and hero doesn’t appear out of the place. However, the love making depiction scenes, unnecessary usage of sentences “spreading the legs “ , “ I’m getting bloated with contraceptive pills “ etc. might be hard for common audience to sail with.

After narrating Gautam – Yamini couple’s story, the screenplay slips into best part of the film Seenayya – Suvarna couple story. Set in Yellandu coal mines of Telangana, this raw emotional thread is quite authentic and appealing. The innocent rural wife and husband relationship of Seenayya – Suvarna has been beautifully captured by Kranthi Madhav.  In second half until paris episodes movie is okay, but then starts the trouble with too much of sliced screenplay. General mass may find it difficult to stay glued to the proceedings with so many layers into it.

And another major drawback of the film is music.  This type of love stories need two blockbuster melodies to start with to make it to next level commercially. But ironically there are no haunting songs as it appear on screen.

To live up to the banner reputation, Creative commercials, has spent lavishly on this film. The visuals are rich, there seems no compromise in this film making.

‘ World Famous Lover ‘ is a complex story of a Story writer Gautam who struggles in his personal life. Seenayya – Suvarna story scores best out of the three threads , Paris Episodes show some swag and Main thread ( Gautam – Yamini ) could have been better.

Director K. Kranthi Madhav shows his strength in writing sensible first half, but loosens grip completely in second half. Climax is a typical cinematic one.

Performances:

Vijay Deverakonda has done three characters in this film. As a writer Gautam , Coal mine worker Seenayya  and as a Radio Jackie who works in Paris he has done pretty cool job. Aiswarya Rajesh who played suvarana is quite a revelation. Her Telangana accent dubbing artist is authentic. Raashi Khanna has acted well as a girl who wants to see change in her life partner.  Catherine Tresa played a small role as a HR  manager at Coal Mines.

Positives:

  • Vijay Deverakonda’s superb performance in three different dimension characters
  • Suvarna – Seenayya couple characterization
  • A different story
  • Rich Production Values

Negatives:

  • Second half emotions could have been better
  • Songs are weak
  • No scope for entertainment for the film genre

Verdict:

World Famous Lover has a different story line, Good first half and notable performances. But the exhausted second half makes the audience bore. Vijay Deverakonda ‘s performance rescues this film to an extent, but same cannot be said about the film’s commercial aspect. Overall , strictly for Vijay D fans.
