DJ Thanks Meet Aimed At Flooring Critics

‘Duvvada jagannadham Thanks’ meet was purely aimed at attacking critics who gave poor rating in their reviews for the flick.

Hyderabad: Allu Arjun’s latest flick received huge criticism from film reviewers for its poor content which was written and directed by Harish Shankar. Irrespective of reviews, film got good openings, thanks to Allu Arjun, Dil Raju banner and 3 days holidays.

Film unit arranged ‘Thanks Meet’ on Monday at JRC Convention, Hyderabad. Director, writer Harish Shankar came down emotionally, harshly against the critics who gave bad reviews for the flick and on him.

He said because of his attitude he got Gabbar Singh flick but his attitude was not changed because of Gabbar Singh.

Responding to reviews, he also said that critics must see revenues how flick is getting on and requested audience to see revenues but not reviews.

Fans should write their own reviews instead of believing movie reviews, Harish said.

Total function got deviated aside after Harish Shankar’s speech. it was, as if the function was aimed to criticise reviewer’s who gave less rating for the flick. Even now film makers, particularly Harish Shankar, feel the movie is a super hit and critics will feel bad in coming days for giving less rating for the flick.

Harish should remember one thing, if film has all positive points; audience will pull down the reviews and troop into theatres. Fall in collections on Tuesday proves that flick has minus points too.

It s better for Harish to concentrate on his next flick by overcoming lapses he committed in DJ instead of criticising the reviewers. Harish and hero Allu Arjun, however, said that they won’t give much importance to reviews. If so there was no need for Harish to bash the critics on public platform on Monday.

Duvvada Jagannadham Review: First Half Best

Introduction: Previous flick of Allu Arjun “ Sarrinodu” made him to sit on the top chair. In that film he played a total mass role for the first time. He came with a different get up (Brahmin boy) in ‘DJ” with a mix of cameo and action. Director Harish Shankar who tasted flop with ‘Ramayya Vasthavayya’ and average flick ‘Subramnayam for Sale’ with Dharam Tej, kept all his experience to give a hit keeping in mind all commercial values. Did ‘DJ’ reach the expectations of both these audience?

Story: Duvvada jagannadham Sastry aka DJ works as a cook in Annapurna caters located in a palace. His way of life is to counter wrong doings in the society in his own style. Royyala Naidu ( Rao Ramesh) tries to grab this palace after coming to know that the palace is worth crores of rupees. Naidu sends goons to force the owners to register the palace in his name. DJ meets the antagonist behind Rayudu in this fight and rest of the story is who is the antagonist and what is the relation between him and DJ and how DJ solved the issue. It has to be watched on the screen.

Cast and Performance: It is Allu Arjun all the way from frame one to the last. Allu Arjun scintillated in both roles of a Brahmin and serious in action packed scenes. Allu Arjun’s role as Brahmin boy reminds the role that Jr NTR played in the flick Adurs. But comic timing in first half by Bunny was marvellous. Mangalore born actor Pooja Hegde enthrals audience who will be a hot cake in Tollywood in coming days. Rao Ramesh did justice to his role as villain with apt costumes. Thanikella Bharani, Vennela Kishore, Posani are OK.

Technical Departments: High light of the film is as usual Music. Devi Sri Prasad gave excellent score of music both in audio and back ground music. Ayanka Bose, Bollywood cinematographer, gave fantastic visuals. Action sequences by Ram Laxman are too good which suited Allu Arjun’s style. Dialogues by Director Harish Shankar are good. Particularly, dialogue which reflects “Vijayawada PINA AMMAVARU KINDA KAMMAVAARU” receives huge applaud from audience. Harish used political scenario of AP state by mixing Agri issue in between. He also criticized the ruling party by saying it chose three crop yielding land of Amaravati was chosen as capital because of caste factor.

Highlights:

  • Allu Arjun
  • Music
  • Chemistry between Pooja and Allu Arjun
  • First half

Drawbacks:

  • Nothing new in story which is routine one
  • Dull Second Half

Analysis: First half of the film starts in a pacy way with a serious action sequence between Allu Arjun and goons and runs at brisk rate with comic scenes and duet songs. Director Harish Shankar failed to run at the same speed in the second half with audience getting bored. The scenes are so predictable that the audience can easily guess what is coming next. He failed to maintain the serious tempo which starts at interval bang.
Overall it is worth watching one time for Allu Arjun’s fans.

Primepost.in Verdict: 2.75/5

Director Harish Shankar does not want to take any risk and he is following in the same foot steps of Boyapati who released Sarainodu straight away in theatres on release date.

So, as per the story, he is donning a Brahmin Cook posture.

Puja Hegde’s glamour would be a special attraction for the movie. Harish Shankar, after giving a blockbuster like ‘Gabbar Singh’ delivered a disaster like ‘Ramayya Vastavayya’ with NTR. Now he got an opportunity to do a film with another top hero. So, he is taking several precautions. For Dil Raju, this is his 25th movie, so he also took it prestigiously.

Pavan Vs Bunny Takes Ugly Turn

Hyderabad: Internal disputes in Mega family rose to a certain level that fans of these family members are damaging the value of their heroes to a maximum extent.

Its a known fact in Industry circles about the cold war in Mega camp with all others joining hands pushing Pawan Kalyan aside. This war has been going on running on for seven years with NO COMPRIMISE formula from either side. We have seen Pavan fans creating disturbance during audio or pre release events held by Mega camp. During success tour of Allu Arjun’s Sarinodu in Vijaywada, comments made by Stylish Star in a sarcastic way against Pavan kalyan fans made gap further between these heroes.

Only dialogue Allu Arjun uttered during that tour CHEPPANU BROTHER is still murmuring in Pavan fans. Even Chiranjeevi was not left by Pawan fans during Khaid No 150 pre release function held at Vizag.  Chairs were broken, anti slogans against Chiranjeevi were seen for the first time by Pawan fans.

This is not over yet, recently released teaser of Allu Arjun’s flick DJ entered in records in both likes and dislike clicks on you tube. It was the first movie teaser to receive 80K dislikes hits and the reason behind it was Pawan fans clicking more dislikes expressing their anger at Bunny for his statement during Sarainodu success tour.

It became talk of the Tollywood, with film lovers stepping in to resolve the issue hereafter prior to release of DJ movie.

Same situation was faced by Nandamuri fans when NTR’s DAMMU was released,. NTR’s Babiah Balakrishna’s fans tried to nullify the talk of the movie by spreading negative talk through social  media and SMS which showed the impact on both these heroes’ family relations.

Its better for Pawan to come forward and take initiative in closing this issue before it takes a vulgar turn. ‘Unity is strength’ was the call given by Pawan Kalyan at Harvard University recently. It will be better for him to maintain the same first in his family rather than giving speeches on International platform

Director Harish Shankar himself is a Brahmin and there will be no degrading comments or jokes on community, a unit sources said to our Primepost reporter.

First of all, we should appreciate Allu Arjun for his dedication towards role, he did not touch or eat non-vegetarian from last 6 months. This shows his commitment towards role and respect towards Brahmin community, Unit source added further.

We have seen attacks on Heroes house and on film sets when ever public or community sentiments were hurt. Attack on Manchu Vishnu’s house for his role in Denikaina ready, warning to comedian Brahmanandam for his role in Nuvvu leka Nenu Lenu are few examples.

Hope movie makers take care of sentiments while producing films based on communities.
