Nee navvula tella dananni nagamalli appadingindi

Nee pedavula erra dananni gorintake aruvadigindi
Ivvaddu ivvaddu ivvaddu ..
one of the chartbuster's of 2002 written by chandrabose. The song
is from the movie Adi starring NTR and Keerthi chawla. Aadi,
a story of rayalseema's Adi Keshava Reddy was one of 2002's blockbusters.
The movie had a storyline wherein a young boy's parents are murdered
by the villain's group and how the boy grows up and takes the revenge
on the group. The success of this movie brought NTR the much-needed
mass image, an image that many heroes crave for. NTR's powerful
dialogue delivery added with the needed emotions brought the needed
effect on the silver screen. His acting capabilities in the romantic
and comedy scenes were also appreciated by the masses. After Adi,
NTR acted in Allari Ramudu,
a movie directed by veteran B.Gopal. The movie had the "Atta-Alludu"
tit for tat story line. NTR's dances were highlight in the movie.
With the success of both the movies in 2002, NTR was crowned
as the "youth hero of 2002" by the tollywood viewers.
stormed tollywood with 'Jayam'.
Jayam had a storyline wherein an innocent, poor, college going guy
falls in love with his classmate, a girl from a rich family. Visualised
by Teja, the movie created record collections more than 20 crores,
a feat, which is very rare for a first timer. Nithin impressed the
audiences with his innocent looks, natural acting, reasonably good
dances and above all impressive fights. Incidentally, Nithin
is only the second hero belonging to the Telangana region after
Andhra MGR T.L.Kantha rao. Having projects with many big banners
under his belt, it remains how Nithin would fare in the coming year.
from the success of two blockbusters from last year, Uday kiran
started this year with the movie Kalusukovalani.
The movie turned out to be an average at the box office. Uday kiran
played the protaganist's role that falls in love with a girl in
a trip and keeps searching for the girl till the end of the movie.
After kalusukovalini, uday experimented with Sriram,
a story of a youngster who wants to become a police officer. The
movie did not fare well at the box office and though uday's acting
was impressive, he could not get the appreciation of the audience.
Following that he featured in Holi
along with Richa, a love story again which bombed at the box office.
Then came "Nee Sneham",
a love-story that had some variety in it. The movie had shades of
friendship, sacrifice, closeness amongst neighbours, college scenes
and a bit of comedy embedded into the fabric of the story. Uday
kiran's acting had an undercurrent of love and sacrifice. The movie
though a bit dragging got uday the much needed break after three
prince of tollywood entered the year with Takkari
Donga, a cowboy kind of movie made in Telugu after 15 years.
The movie was shot in beautiful locales in Utah, Nasik and other
places. Mahesh's stunts were widely appreciated in the horse-riding
scenes and also in the rope scenes. The scenes wherein he loots
the treasure from the train, discovers where the real treasure lies
in the forest brought him wide acclaim from the industry as well
as the audience. Satyanand's dialogues added spice to his character.
His dancing skills were re-iterated in most of the songs. After
TD, Mahesh starred in Bobby
along with Arti Agarwal. Mahesh's dialogue delivery had an undercurrent
of comedy and sarcasm in this movie. The scenes where he replies
to Brahmanandam were the highlight of the movie. This year, Mahesh
could not get the big hit which he is probably looking for, but
with projects like Nijam under the direction of Teja and
Okkadu, we can definetely hope for a big hit in the coming
the year with the successful Nuvvu
Leka Nenu Lenu under the prestigious Suresh Productions banner
co-starring with Arti. The movie had a typical tarun story of loving-but-not-expressing
type of love story. However, the witty dialogues and good songs
made it a good hit. After that Tarun starred in Adrushtam
along with Gajala and Reema Sen, the movie did not fare well at
the box office. Then came Nuvve
Nuvve starring Shreya and Tarun. The movie was directed by Trivikram,
the witty one-liners again helped the movie. Overall, this year
was pretty good for Tarun
year saw the introduction of Tarak Rathna as the heir of the legendary
Nandamuri family. Tarak starred in the movie okatava
number kurradu. NTR's performance was appreciated by many though
the movie was not that successful at the box office. Then came Yuvarathna,
a story where the guy falls in love with the girl next door and
how they unite. Tarak's dances were appreciated in this movie. Hope
the coming year would be good for this young hero.
introduced to tollywood as Eeshwar
by Jayant gave a decent performance for a new comer in this mass
movie. The story of a dhoolpet guy falling in love with the MLA's
daughter had all the needed twists. His dialogue delivery probably
impressed the audience more. His dialogues in the scene where he
gets beaten up by the inspector and ferociously says "Debbaki
Debba teeyaka pothe na abbaki puttinonne kadu" made the
audience remember the legendary Krishnam Raju's performance in yester
year movies. His comedy touch was also nice, "Mein Dhoolpet
ka raja hoon" and " maa dostulu navvutaru"
were probably some of them.
year also saw the introduction of both the sons of EVV Satyanarayana
as heroes. Rajesh Aryan was introduced in the movie Hai
and Sontham. Though the
movie had the typical EVV style sarcasm, it was not successful at
the box office. It was EVV's second son Naresh who stole the limelight
this year. Ravi babu in the movie Allari
rightly extracted his acting prowess and he became 'Allari Naresh'.
The most positive point about this young hero being his comedy timing
and the correct expressions in his face. "Appu, nuvvu kaka
naaku evarunnare" kind of dialogues brought the needed
effect in the movie. Naresh also acted in the movies "Dhanalakshmi
I love you" and also the latest Thottigang
in this year.
year we also saw heroes like Rohit (Girl
friend, Chandra Vansam)
making their presence felt in Tollywood. But, the absence of power
star this year definetely took some spice away from the competition.
Let's hope that the young heroes with exciting projects under their
belt give the senior tollywood heroes a run for their money in the
notes for year 2002
