Ode to Pawan Kalyan
Mr. Pawan Kalyan,
am medical student out here in the US, born and brought up here
but of course my parents are Telugu. I'm a total film nut obsessed
with the classics by Kurasawa, Fellini and Scorsese but never really
cared for telugu movies except for those early ones by your brother
Chiranjeevi and now, by you.
have to say that both of you bought a new dimension to Telugu films,
a sense of machoness like Robert De Niro and a sense of passion
for film. It's good to see a rugged sex appeal, and independence
of character, that is backed up by your personality compared to
most other Indian actors, where the ruggedness and masculinity is
just an illusion created by the director- a pawn of the dynasties.
More so, the story, the direction, the music just adds to YOU- the
dawn of the "independent man", a real "hero".
Like what Napoleon, a self made man with a vision, did to the French
aristocracy. And of course just like what Khaidi did in '83- it
heralded the era of a superstar, Chiranjeevi.
looks like your team puts plenty of effort into each scene, working
on continuity, character development, story development and music.
Each scene is as beautiful as an intricate stitch made by a surgeon...
the passion shines through. It's more than I can say about a lot
of other contemporary films... why does it seem like most telugu
producers/directors think that by putting their kin, a few songs
together, and a few shakes of the heroines hips is enough to make
Gokulumlo Seetha to Kushi, your movies are exceptional. Each of
your characters is so unique, the music is so novel and the story
is so different, so on the edge- testing Telugu prudishness. Your
characters show that it's okay to do what you think, as long as
you do what's right by your heart, not by what others tell you.
I hope telugu youth learn a lot from you.
the last thing that i want to say is that your interest in AIKIDO
is awesome. I myself have been doing AIKIDO for 5 years and owe
a lot to it. Hopefully your influence will cause a lot of Telugu
youths to venture into areas that have not been okayed by mommy
and daddy. Giving them the strength and the courage to take their
destiny into their own hands...
rumored that you are a hard man to deal with but to be a genius
is one thing, but to have people who have the capability of recognizing
that genius is another. I'm sure not many understand you... I completely
look forward to your next film..
just a thought if you get a chance you should check out Wang Kar
Wai's "Fallen Angels" and guy ritchie's films, I'm sure
they will seed plenty of ideas in your mind...
