- A talented hero in a bad directors hand
29th March 2003
These days many directors, actors and producers are hurrying up
to make their sons get launched as heroes. God knows how many of
them are getting success. There are some talented persons who are
getting their career damaged by being in the hands of a bad director.
For me "Allu Arjun" is one of them. After seeing the movie
one point came up to my mind that Allu Arjun is a versatile hero
but he lacks perfection. As usual being a budding artist he has
to learn many things regarding acting.
of all it was three big personalities who were responsible for the
making of "GANGOTRI". The three people who launched many
heroes, actors and actress could not come up with a new project.
"Allu Arjun "being in the hands of a director like "Raghavendra
Rao", who has many hits to name, Allu Aravaind, one of the
main stone for strengthening the career of Chiranjeevi, Allu Aravind
who is known to be one of the best producer and the person to launch
maximum of the heroes failed to launch "Allu Arjun".
there was much talk about the movie I think when we see the movie
a point comes to our mind, we may be thinking some thing is missing
in the movie that is "perfection and clarity", to be frank
"Gangotri movie is a tailor made movie to launch a producer's
son in a bang.
points of the movie:
in story and screenplay
2) Imperfection in putting up the hero
3) Tailor made comedy scenes
4) Same strategies to grab audiences
5) Dragging the story
6) Mavvayadi mogalturu song that may become a negative point to
This is a tailor made movie keeping in view of a few actors, may
be this is the cause for the failure of the perfect story. To be
frank there are some things for the failure of the movie. There
are few actors who are useless and were just kept for name sake
like "Seetha and Suman".
comedy scenes could not mix up and the audiences get irritated in
a few scenes. The dragging of the scenes some times made audience
go out of the theatre. The same old strategies of songs with flowers
and fruits made audience irritated. Dialogues though are good lost
hold in some sequences.
be after "Indra " it has become a fashion to make a movie
in pilgrim centres, and this time may be that too failed. The main
back lag for Allu Arjun will be in the hands of a bad director.
May be Raghavendra Rao is a good director but this time he failed
to show himself. Some times the audience can easily say the next
scene. Chinni Krishna may be lacking of stories other wise he would
have come up with a new line rather than making hero run to a pilgrim
center or a far off land. And last but not the least the lead pair
cannot come up to hide their age, may be this time the child actor
should be moved so that audience does not get bored
Arjun: Though he was looking old he came up with good action,
dance and fights, may be his acting course made him to do so. In
one of the scene when his father dies he showed his perfection in
acting. The scene when he jumps himself to rescue himself gave a
good applause from the audience. Over all Allu Arjun's acting is
good but he had to avoid songs like "mavayyadi mogaltooru",
since audience cant expect to see him and can not tolerate since
he looked some thing a like.
Agarwal: Aditi Agarwal is good and may become a positive aspect
for the film, since this is a movie to launch a hero, there is no
expectation from her. As usual she has been kept for some songs
a few scenes and a chase at last. But she showed her perfection
in face and may be she can grab few new projects in future.
Raj: As usual he is the lead pair and had shown down his skills,
he shown his power in acting once again but in some scenes he lost
perfection may be the story made him to do so.
Pragathi is one actress who came up with her skills this time. As
usual being a side actress may be she has to thank writer for doing
this. The last scenes had made the audience to silence. May be her
face that can show feelings and the punch in dialogues and delivery
had given her a good mark in the film.
M.M.Keeravani has done good job may be it will be better to see
some songs to get the power of his music. Lyrics by veturi and Chandra
Bose are good and gave good impact of the music.
song jeevana vahini is good and the impact of the Ganga river is
shown. The second song vallanki pitta is good is shown with good
dance sequences. Railu bandi song is well picturised and is shown
well. The fourth song "mavayya di mogaltooru" should not
be in the movie since it shows the hero in the other end, may be
it may be removed in a few days. Oka totalo is the song that comes
in a sequence when heroine become matured, I don't why these such
a scenes are shown in movies. There is sad song which is good and
is not in the movie. The last song
"Nuvvu nenu kalisunte" is shot on Ganges and is shot beautifully.
editing and the cinematography is good and stunts
by Vijayan showed the potentiality of the hero.
all it is better to say "A talented hero in a bad directors
