success meet of Sankranthi's sensational hit 'Nuvvostanante
Nenoddantana' was held at Rama Naidu studios on the
night of 30th January 2005. The cast and crewmembers
have attended this function to share their happiness.
to get a hit after 2 years - Srihari
Srihari gave a pretty honest speech on this occasion.
He said that he predicted this movie to run for 1
year after listening to the storyline. He narrated
his experiences with his son Sashank while dropping
him at school every time. His son used to look at
film street posters while traveling in car and used
to ask Srihari if that film (in the poster) is hit/average/flop
and Srihari used to respond accordingly. But unfortunately
Srihari used to feel guilty and embarrassed as he
had to say that his films were flops for the past
two years. But after the sensational hit of NVNV,
Srihari proudly told his son about the success. Srihari
narrated how well Sirivennela Seetarama Sastry appreciated
his work. Hero Nagarjuna also called up Srihari to
congratulate him and had a string of praises for his
performance. Mani Ratnam and Shankar also saw the
film in Chennai and commended the work of Srihari.
half is the heart of NVNV - Paruchuri Gopala Krishna
Paruchuri Gopala Krishna said that there are people
who said that second half is weak. But the second
half of the film is the heart of the film. He said
that a director's greatness can be gauged by how well
he would picturize the scenes that do not have dialogues.
And many dialogues-less scenes in this film demonstrate
the worth of film director Prabhu Deva.
Raju is the pioneer in our team - Paruchuri Venkateswara
Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao said that they worked very
hard and toiled throughout the making of NVNV. He
described their team in his station master language
by comparing MS Raju as the engine of train, other
technicians as the coaches. And the NVNV film as a
big junction. He has special commendation for the
4-times national award winning cinematographer Venu
for making this film a visual feast. He also said
that watching this film on video would not give as
much satisfaction as watching it on the big screen
in theater along with other crowds.
Raju is my God Father - Siddardh
Siddardh said that the seven months he worked for
this film is like going to temple and performing rituals.
He worked with full dedication to this film. Through
this film he earned three persons - a brother in the
form of 'Srihari', a close friend in the form of 'Prabhu
Deva' and a God Father in the form of 'MS Raju'. In
an emotional tone, Siddardh said that no other producer
would have opted for him to do such a terrific character.
Siddardh also said that even if his father produced
this film, he would have preferred some other actor.
He earnestly thanked MS Raju for keeping faith in
him and casting him for Santosh character. Siddardh
said that Trisha would remain in the future history
as one of the greatest actresses of Indian Cinema.
to have worked with NVNV - Trisha
An elated Trisha said that she is feeling so happy
that it is tough to express in works. She is feeling
happy to be the part of NVNV team.
film with MS Raju - Prabhudeva
Director Prabhudeva said that he is very happy. He
would be repaying his debt by making another hit film
for MS Raju with sincerity and dedication.
is MS Raju's story idea - Veeru Potla
Veeru Potla said that the basic idea for this story
is by MS Raju. MS Raju should be given credit for
story. Veeru compared the work of Prabhu Deva's work
to that of K Balachandar. He narrated how the technician's
team of NVNV worked day and nights.
prints to 200 - Ram Prasad
Ram Prasad of Rama Naidu Labs said that MS Raju wanted
to release NVNV with less number of prints as it had
no star cast. But had to come up with 85 prints because
it was releasing in Sankranthi season. At present,
NVNV is running with 150 prints and there is an order
of 50 more prints at present. These prints would be
added by next Friday. He also said that NVNV is released
in overseas with maximum number of prints as par with
films of big heroes.
hit than Okkadu & Varsham - Nizam distributor
Nizam distributor Pramod said that this film would
be collecting more than that of Okkadu and Varsham
in Nizam. Generally the distributors enquire about
how current booking is doing in cinema halls. But
for this film, they are enquiring about advance booking
and the percentage of ladies tickets sold. He opined
that actor Siddardh had high levels of energy. He
thanked MS Raju for giving Nizam rights.
Our first profitable audio venture - Maruthi Music
Pavan (of behalf of Maruthi Music) said that they
entered audio market with Sri Anjaneyam last year
and did 10 films so far. NVNV is the first audio to
get them profits. This audio has meaningful music
and would surely cross the sales of Varsham and Arya,
am impressed with NVNV - Sravanthi Ravi Kishore (USA
Sravanthi Ravi Kishore - who entered Overseas distribution
with NVNV - said that he personally liked NVNV so
much that he wanted to be a part of team by acquiring
the distribution rights.
