Good One......

Was watching the movie - Tere Ghar Ke Samne - Hindi movie. A Dev anand Movie... liked the below dialogue and ofcourse one of great all time hit song after that...

While walking on stairs in Kutub Minar....

उप्पर देखता  हूँ तो सोचता हूँ  कैसे पहुंचें
मगर आपको देखता हूँ तो सोचता हूँ पहुँचने की क्या जरूरत हैं

Then comes in sequence the wonderful song -

दिल का बव्नर करे पुकार प्यार का राग  सुनो..प्यार का राग  सुनो रे....

"Sri Rama Rajyam" - Movie By Bapu Ramana - A different perspective

First of all, with all due respect to Bapu & Ramana, they are great stalwarts of Telugu Cinema Industry and i don't even come anywhere near them to criticise or point fingers at them. Below comments are remarks based on my pure observation skills. As my friends often say i am avery good observer and also being a great fan of Legend - NTR, have seen this movie with so much interest and vigour that i found few points could be better.

Overall the movie was excellent and was not a disaster like "pandurangadu" which was totally mis-directed by changing the story and adding unnecessary modernised scenes.

Pray God to give Bapu more energy and health to direct such movies in future again.

Key observations -

1. Screenplay was found to be little too fast in the initial scenes especially where Rama is entering into ayodhya and during rajyabhishekam. In the scene where rama and sita are walking to the throne, stop before it and bend to pay their respects, rama (balakrishna) completes his act a little faster and while sita (nayantara) is still doing it - (her hands are still attached), balakrishna grabs her finger.

2. Song lyrics could be lot better and it is no match to all time great hit song - "E nimishaniki emi jaruguno....".

3. Excellent take by bapu in the scene when Lakshmana bows to pay his respects to sita. srikanth falls on the feet of sita - an excellent picture.

4. Rest of emotions from sita during the time when she is being left in forest and lakshmana conveying the message are not good enough and can be easily seen as little unreal.

5. Overall Srikanth did a great attempt to Lakshmana's character. Good Job.

6. Dialogues from srikanth (lakshmana) while conveying the message  was not appropriate. Even though the movie is to ensure it is understood by all rather than use any sanskrit, some specific words like - "ramudu", "anubhavisthunadu" doesnt sound good. They doesn't show the respect for his brother or his decission.

7.  Rama's statue in ashram was awesome...Very attractive and beautiful.

8. When sita was being guided to outside for srimantham from her cottage, Hanuman in the form of a kid catches her hand and helps her towards the throne. This is "Highly Unacceptable". if you understand the Great Hanuman's devotion to ram and sita, he will never attempt to catch her hand. for me its very important, in that case, lakshmana touching the feet of sita can be shown or hanuman during the rajyabhishekam can touch feet of rama and sita which you seldom see in any movies or plays.

9. Lav Kusa song - good even though again not a match for old song. But definetely is equally good for  these times.

A Tribute to the Great "Jewel Thief", "Guide" and "Hare Rama Hare Krishna"

Its a very sad loss hearing devanand passed away today. He is a great actor, producer and director.

Hope his soul rest in peace.
