Is DSP’s music losing sheen ?
Devi Sri Prasad is one of the most reliable composers in Tollywood. He is known for coming up with chartbuster songs in all his albums and he rarely fails to meet the expectations of music lovers. He is also the most preferred music director by all star directors and heroes in the current generation. However, in recent times, his music has lost sheen as his tunes are turning out to be monotonous and run-of-the-mill.
Last year, DSP delivered a smashing album with Rangasthalam as every song turned out to be a chartbuster. Apart from Rangasthalam, all his other albums in 2018 received only a lukewarm response from audience. His latest two albums Vinaya Vidheya Rama and F2 also failed to make any impact due to the mundane and repetitive tunes. The mediocre albums couldn’t create any buzz on the films.
Meanwhile, top directors like Trivikram, who previously associated with DSP for numerous films, are now opting to work with other in-form composers like SS Thaman. As of now, Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi is the only big ticket film in hand for DSP. He needs to comeback very strongly with Maharshi album to maintain his top slot among composers.
Thandane Thandane promo : A visual treat for family audience
Ram Charan’s upcoming film Vinaya Vidheya Rama is tipped to be an action drama dosed with family emotions. Like his previous films, director Boyapati Srinu ensured that there is a family song in this film and composer Devi Sri Prasad made sure that this particular song is the stand out number in the album.
The video promo of this family song Thandane Thandane has been unveiled today and it glimpses that a visual treat is in the offing for family audience. The visuals are quite promising and Ram Charan’s traditional avatar is surely going to thrill his fans. The bonding between the big family of Charan is showcased in this song and DSP’s tune complements the setting very well.
The production values by DVV Entertainments are likely to be the major highlight for Vinaya Vidheya Rama.
Team VVR continues poster treat
The makers of Ram Charan’s upcoming Sankranthi release Vinaya Vidheya Rama are leaving no stone unturned in promoting the film aggressively. With only ten days left, the publicity team of VVR are unveiling stunning posters to double up the hype in audience. The promotional campaign is a right mix aimed at capturing attention of both family and mass audience. After giving a mass treat with ‘Rambo’ like badass poster of Ram Charan, team VVR released a family poster in festive mood on the eve of New Year.
Continuing the treat, a lovely poster of Charan and Kiara Advani from a song has been released yesterday. Today, another striking pose of Charan flaunting his toned physique with tattoo is out to impress audience. Though the routine teaser and trailer couldn’t add to the buzz, the impressive posters have managed to create the much needed hype for this commercial entertainer ahead of its grand release on January 11th.Directed by Boyapati Srinu, the film is produced by DVV Danayya.
Vinaya Vidheya Rama Pre release Event Highlights
Lion will not hunt daily, Trivikram’s allegory on Charan
Maatala Maantrikudu Trivikram gave an interesting speech at pre-release function of Vinaya Vidheya Rama movie. He was one of the chief guests at the function.
Trivikram told, he liked the title very much, Rama was indeed humble towards his mother, and modest towards his father, he said. But he was also very ferocious at his enemies, he added. Then he spoke very high about Chiranjeevi and called him the last matinee idol because now most of the theatres turned multiplexes.He went on to say, it is difficult to talk about Telugu cinema or even south Indian cinema without mentioning Chiranjeevi. He told, Chiranjeevi influenced him a lot during his college days. He added, a story in a magazine that said Chiranjeevi was highest paid actor in India, strongly inspired him into movies.
Later he spoke very high about Charan’s Rangasthalam movie and told the movie changed thought process of many film makers. He finally told an allegory and said, usually Lion wont go for hunting every day like other animals. It hunts only once in a 10-12 days span when it feels very hungry. But that hunting will be very ‘solid’ and the left-overs of his meal will suffice for small animals like fox etc for several days, he added. He compared this allegory with Ram Charan’s movies as he is not doing any and every movie and being very cautious about his stories and movies.
Trivikram’s magical words brought cheer to the masses and satisfaction to the class audience.
VVR will be gang-leader like mass entertainer: Chiranjeevi
Mega star Chiranjeevi, chief guest at Vinaya Vidheya Rama (VVR) pre-release function, told this movie will be a mass entertainer like Gang leader. He was confident that this is the right movie after rustic and raw Rangasthalam.
Chianjeevi spoke very high about another chief guest KTR and called him his bench-mate, It is to be noted that both were elected as MLAs for the first time in 2009 and both were bench-mates at assembly in united AP. Chiru recalled those days and told, KTR always looked very soft and humble in assembly those days like Vinaya Vidheya Rama. But, Chiranjeevi added, he is not only soft but also very ferocious for his opponents as was seen during recent Telangana elections. He also called KTR is daring-dashing and dynamic leader.
Chiranjeevi thanked audience for accepting him after a long gap of 9 years and giving him stupendous success like Khaidhi 150. Then he talked about VVR. He revealed that after family drama of Govindhudu Andarivade, contemporary thriller like Dhruva, and rustic and raw entertainer Rangasthalam, it was the conscious decision of him and Charan to do a mass entertainer. Then, almost at the same time Boyapati narrated this subject, which was liked by both Chiranjeevi and Charan. Chiranjeevi told, in this movie Ram Charan will be doing the role of a protector and savoir of the family similar to his role in Gang leader. Chiranjeevi added, other than this, there are no other similarities between the stories of Gang leader and VVR.
He finally hoped, this movie will be definitely a good commercial entertainer to watch during the festive season of Pongal.
Ram Charan is better speaker than me, he may come into politics: KTR
TRS working president KTR was chief guest at pre-release function of Vinaya Vidheya Ram movie. As everyone knows, he shares good rapport with Ram Charan. While speaking, KTR made some light-hearted comments about Ram Charan and told he may come into politics in future.
Earlier Ram Charan spoke at length about the film, about the artistes and technicians working for this film. But at some point, audience were shouting Pawan’s name and Ram Charan gave a pause to his speech and told them he will definitely speak about Pawan at the end. But with this digression, he forgot his speech and paused a few seconds before coming back to the topic he wanted to speak. However, he later spoke at length about everything he wanted to speak, including about Pawan.
When KTR took over later, he appreciated Ram Charan for his speech. He told, Ram Charan’s speeches are better than their election speeches and then on lighter-vein told, may be Ram Charan also come into politics in future. Through out the speech he called Ram charan as brother and reminded that he attended Dhruva audio function at the same venue earlier. He also told, Ram Charan’s performance in Rangasthalam was outstanding and reminded that, during elections, he used Rangasthalam’s song (Aa gattununtavaa, ee gattununtava) extensively without permission of Ram Charan and Devi Sri Prasad.
Anyway KTR’s presence at audio function delighted mega fans.
Every hero should work with Boyapati at least once: Ram Charan
Ram Charan’s Vinaya Vidheya Rama is all set to release for next pongal. Hero Ram Charan praised showers on his director Boyapati during the pre-release function.
Ram Charan told, in his entire career, Boyapati’s was the most disciplined set. He added, everything in his set is very orderly and well planned. He also told, Boyapati designed this character for him specially and he almost worked for 4 years on this subject. Ram Charan told, every hero should work with such disciplined director at least once in their career. He added, whenever he talks with Boyapati, he feels very much energized and even his mother and wife recognize ‘josh’ in his behavior and ask him whether he just had a chat with Boyapati
Before Ram Charan’s speech, Boyapati also spoke high about Ram Charan and KTR. He drew lines comparing both of them and told both are ‘Vinaya Vidheya Ramas’. He also compared both of them for their heritage and told a typical Boyapati dialogue ‘ Varasatvam anedi asamarthudiki baruvu, kaanee adE vaarastvam samarthudiki bhadyata’ .

VVR trailer : Charan’s mass treat in typical Boyapati style
Vinaya Vidheya Rama Trailer
The theatrical trailer of Ram Charan’s much awaited Sankranthi release Vinaya Vidheya Rama is finally out and it glimpses a typical Boyapati mark commercial potboiler that offers another mass treat for audience.
An extension of the teaser, the two minute trailer is a packed with high octane action sequences, intense dialogues and family drama. A confident looking Charan is playing a full length mass role in this film. He brandishes heavy duty swords in fight episodes and mouths mass dialogues very often. The production values are rich and the action scenes shot in Azerbaijan are likely to be the major highlight of the film. Vivek Oberoi is a stylish villain. DSP’s bgm is not so impressive as it appears bland.
Going by the trailer, it is clear that Boyapati is once again coming up with a typical mass entertainer laced with family drama. All in all, it is going to be Charan’s mass show in Boyapati’s trademark style.
