of guys are in awe of Shehnaz after watching this film. They say
that she exposed a lot and shown lot of cleavage. I wonder, if these
guys are going blind. The biggest flasher in this film is not Shehnaz.
It is Nagarjuna himself. He bares his chest at the drop of the hat.
I wonder, if Nag is keeping Sallu Bhai as the competitor in his
technique of exploiting the heroine in a subtle way is to make her
run and concentrate camera on the upper charms. It started with
Mani Rantam's classic film 'Bombay', in which Manisha runs wearing
a burqa. Later on Raghavendra Rao used the same for Preity Zinta
in Raja Kumarudu. Then came B Gopal's Ravanna in which Sanghvi did
the same galloping in a song with Rajasekhar. In Nag's earlier film,
Azad, the homely looking Soundarya is subjected to this infamous
sprint. And now it's Shehnaz's turn in this film on the pretext
of saving herself from the raging bull.
get back to the basics of the film Eduruleni Manishi. We do accept
that Nag is the man without opposition as the title of this film
suggests. It does not mean that this film should have a weak villain.
The heroism of the hero gets elevated only if the villain is equally
powerful. While watching this film, I though this film can become
another Narasimha, in which the heroine played a negative role.
I expected Soundarya to ruin Nag and then repent about the same
and help Nag rebuilt the fame and fortune. The moment, Soundarya
realized her mistake in the middle of second half, the story is
over. The rest of 45 minutes is just dragging the film by bringing
back the Nazar and gang to work.
is one particular scene in this film in which Nazar arranges a lorry-full
of rowdies from the city to finish of Sr. Nagarjuna. But all these
lethal goons drop their weapons the moment they see Nagarjuna and
runs away. This scene is a straight lift from Narasimha Naidu. There
is a reason for the goons to fear Narasimha Naidu is justifiable
as he had a powerful flashback, in which he has beaten them black
and blue. But, I fail to understand why the goons in Eduruleni Manishi
feared Nagarjuna. This shows the way the filmmakers copy the successful
scenes from other blockbusters, without really looking for the necessity
of placing those scenes.
think Suryamurthy(Sr. Nag) is such a donor that he donates money
to all the people in trouble. He donated to such an extent that
he did not have enough money to buy cloths for himself. Otherwise
how can he wear a single white dress throughout the film? His state
of poverty has reached the rock bottom by the time he entered the
climax. His white dress is also gone. All he left with is a black
lungi and nothing to wear on this chest for the climax. What
a poor guy! There is another poor guy in Bollywood. He is Salman
Khan. He also do not have money to buy shirts. But he has enough
dough to maintain a clean-shaven muscular chest. Thanks to his razor
and vitamin pills. But Surya Murthy does not have money for that
too. Shehnaz is no exception. She too needs some pocket money to
maintain a wardrobe of full-length cloths.
must watch the TV commercials of Eduruleni Manishi. You can see
Surya Murthy walking furiously in his typical white dress as the
fireballs splash from either side to form the title 'Eduruleni Manishi'.
But for that getup Nag looks little lean. That get up needs hefty
personality (hefty means plump).
luscious building of NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology)
in Madhapur is serving the purpose of heroine's college in most
of the Telugu films. Be it Sonali Bendre's college in Murari or
Shehnaz's college in Eduruleni Manishi. But what the cinematographer
could not avoid is the welcome board of Wipro building that is set
right opposite to NIFT. I am sure, the pretty damsels of this NIFT
started throwing tantrums like the heroines as NIFT building is
turning out to be the only posh Hyderabad College for any heroine
in films to study. And the guys at Wipro, Madhapur do not mind it
is mad with me. Otherwise how can he mention the girl kid's name
in his review wrongly. Her name is Rani. But he wrote it as Vaani.
I think he is jealous of me for having a pretty beautiful girl friend
Rani. Anyway I am not bothered. More number of people read my blah
blah than his reviews.
