If Ramu goes 'Shiva' way - his protégé takes the 'Suri' way

chakriEditor Shankar, who worked with Ramu as an Editor is directing a film for the first time for Tammareddy Bharadwaja with Chakri and Bombay babe Priyanka(see the image left) in the main lead.

According to Tammareddy Bharadwaja the storyline of film goes like this. Suryanarayana(aka Suri) is a collage student who do not want to get influenced by Violence. But he would be dragged into it. This film is all about how he returns back from the violence and leads a nor mail life. It will have the shades of films like Shiva, Alajadi and Gulabi. But treatment would be entirely different. Story and dialogues of this film are given by the hero Chakri. Music by Vidya sagar. Screenplay, editing and direction by Shankar. This film is slated for September 1st week release.

Chiru did recommend a few films under obligation

chakriA Hindi film 'Maachis' is being dubbed in Telugu as 'Nee manasu naa manasu' New Indian Express Publication group. This film is about AIDS. Chiru has seen this film the other night and got very much impressed and recommended this film to the viewers by giving a press statement. Interestingly he made a revelation that he did recommend few films to the viewers as an obligation to the producer. But this recommendation for this film 'Nee manasu - naa manasu' is a heartfelt one. His latest recommendation was 'Preyasi Raave' by Rama Naidu.

Even Nara Chandra babu Naidu, CEO of AP too recommended this film to the viewers yesterday. Looks like there is more publicity for this film by celebrities than the word of mouth by the satisfied viewer.
