Prince Mahesh Babu’s the much discussed film ‘Khaleja’ followed by its title controversy dawned as one of the biggest flop in his film career. Hence, he is taking every precaution to ensure success for his forth coming film ‘Dhukudu.’ Since, his last film ‘Pokiri’ was a block buster movie made of Super Cop story, it is learnt that his forthcoming movie ‘Dhukudu’ also takes inspiration from it to ensure success. Though, he and his team kept the film under wraps, according to inside sources the story line goes like this:
Mahesh babu once again plays Super Cop role and Prakash Raj plays as a dreaded terrorist role in this film. He manages to escape from Mahesh babu’s custody and lands at Turkey. Mahesh babu’s boss Nazar gives him sharp ten days time to catch the terrorist and then the scene shifts to Turkey altogether with heroine Samantha, who happen to be daughter of Nazar. During the ten days short period, Mahesh babu was be able to fall in love with her and also find some time to sing and dance at the sunny beaches. While romancing she gives him a pleasant clue that she is the daughter of Nazar and her father Nazar is the one who let Prakash Raj escape from his custody. Then, what happen next and how the director Sreenu Vytla added necessary spices to the film is the thing which we have to know after the film release.
The Mahesh Babu film Athidhi is similar to his blockbuster movie Pokiri. The first half of the film runs very close to Pokiri. Mahesh Babu’s style, mannerism, the narration, the goons, everything resembles the story from Pokiri.
It is only in the second half that the film has some difference. But on the whole, the film is more or less like Pokiri II and this is the comment one heard from the audience who came out of the theaters after watching the morning show.
2011/1/28 18:12:24 Prince Mahesh babu starrer ‘Dhukudu’ film shooting is progressing with brisk pace at Hyderabad. Unlike, his previous movies he has asked the director Sreenu Vytla to avoid unnecessary attention of media for this film shooting, fearing hype which again may raise expectations on this film too. So, the unit is also quietly completing their shooting. It is learnt that, the unit will move to Gujarat in the first week of next month to shoot some song sequences there. Samantha is pairing with prince in this film.
Prakash Raj is playing as villain and Nazar and Mahesh babu are playing police cops in this film. This film is co produced by A.Gopichand and S.Anil under ‘14 Reels Entertainments’ banner.
2011/2/11 16:47:54 Ever since, the competition for satellite rights of the Telugu films begins in the small screens, proportionately the price tags of the films also shot to sky high. The competition goes to such an extent that, even small and flop films were able to fetch good amounts by selling the satellite rights to racing entertainment channels. But, many of the channels which couldn’t afford or willing to invest such huge amounts on films that were eating up into their profits all of a sudden quit the race. Ultimately, this lead to a sudden down falls of the business and there were no takers for even hit films.
But, the recent launching of Telugu Movie channel ‘MAA movies’ has come as a big help to prince Mahesh babu’s upcoming film ‘Dhukudu.’ Since, this newly launched ‘MAA Movies’ channel has big dreams about its future. So, it has offered a fancy price of Rs.5.75 crores to Mahesh’s ‘Dhukudu’ film for obtaining it’s satellite rights.
Although, none can give a minimum guarantee for the success of a film, this kind of pre- release-business deals, certainly give some breathe to the producers, who gambles with his hard earned money.
