Censor report

We announced in idlebrain.com that Nagarjuna's latest film 'Santosham' is going for censoring on 3rd May, that is today. We got hold of couple of censoring members for inside information on Santosham film. We know the story line, strengths of the film and expected commercial success. But due to commercial considerations, we are not letting out the storyline of the film, as film is having 6 more days for the release. According to the censor members, the film 'Santosham' is very 'satisfactory'. Commercially, this film has got all ingredients of becoming a 100 days film. Three strengths of this film are

1. Music by RP Patnaik
2. Photography by S Gopal Reddy
3. Brilliant performance by Nagarjuna Akkineni

Though we know the storyline, it's not fair to reveal it at this point of time. But we would definitely let you know a day before the release of Santosham. 8th May that is.

Disclaimer: We know that declaring the commercial fate of a film a week before its release might make you go crazy. But, we believe in the words ... 'Sahasam Sayara Dimbhaka'! As this information is obtained by the censor officers, we can't guarantee the veracity of the information. Wait for preview report on 8th of May and Jeevi review on 9th of May. Till then enjoy the expected success of Santosham!

Expectations will naturally be high on a banner that has churned out four hits in a row. More so, when their last movie has been with Akkineni Nagarjuna, which turned out to be a big hit. After the sensational film, "Hello Brother," Sri Durga Arts is coming up with one more entertainer, "Santhosham" with Nagarjuna in the lead. Gracy Singh of "Lagaan" fame is making her debut in South Indian films in a sprightly role. Special appearance by Prabhu Deva with Sriya as his co-star is a surprise package.

The film also marks the entry of young director Dararath. After shooting in Ooty, Rajahmundry, Mumbai and Hyderabad, the last schedule is in progress in New Zealand.

Says producer K.L. Narayana: "It is a beautiful love story. Love blossoms between two adults set against a family backdrop, with child sentiment and wholesome entertainment thrown in.

"Nagarjuana plays the lighter-vein role of an architect based abroad. He is not the kind to be cowed down by adverse situations, as he takes them in his stride, and tackles them with a smile. Enamored by his positive attitude towards life, the heroine responds positively to his love.

"After a long time, Prabhu Deva is acting in a Telugu film. He will be seen in a special role. He has also choreographed for a couple of songs, one of which has been filmed on him and Sofia Huq in Mumbai at a discotheque set. Nagarjuna and Prabhu Deva meet in an unexpected situation, and with this, the story takes twists and turns.

"Like in our earlier movies, music plays a vital role in this film too, with all the six songs and three smaller numbers conveying the subject and providing lilting entertainment with ear-friendly score by R.P. Patnaik."

Dasarath says that through his debut venture, he is trying to capture human relationships and emotions at their best on celluloid. "The characters in the film area replica of real life characters and hence look natural. Though we have two heroines, it is not a love triangle. It is a feel good film with no negative characters."

"There are no villains in the story. You find only a positive angle in every character. The situations seem to influence the behavioral pattern of the characters and have a direct impact on their relationship. Dasarath has scripted and directed it well. The audience can easily identify with the characters. After completing post-production work in April, we plan to release the movie in May informs the film's presenter and cinematographer, S. Gopal Reddy.

K. Viswanath plays the role of the heroine's father and Sunil has been cast in a key role.

Other actors are Chandramohan, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Brahmanandam, Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao, Prighvi, Bharani, L.B. Sriram, 'Ahuti' Prasad, Benerjee, Master Akshay, Sumithra, Sudha and Anitha Chowdary.

Lyrics are by Seethrama Sastry and Kulasekhar, art by Ashok, editing by Krishna Reddy, screenplay by Gopi Mohan and Dasarath. Story, dialogue and direction are by Dasarath.
