Bhai Review 2.5/5

Sentiment associated with Nagarjuna’s Bhai Akkineni Nagarjuna’s upcoming film ‘Bhai’ has completed all the formalities and is all set for release on October 25, But this October release has a sentiment attached with Nagarajuna.

Nagarjuna’s earlier film like Shiva (1989) President Gari Pellam (1992) Allari Alludu (1993) Ninne Pelladatha (1996) Shivamani (2003) were released in the month of October and after 10 years gap Nagarjuna is coming in the month of October with masala comedy entertainer Bhai.

Bhai has been directed by Veerabhadram, while Nag is producing the film under Annapurna Studios banner. Richa Gangopadhyay will be seen as the heroine.Devi Sri Prasad has composed the music. Hope October sentiment works out for Nag.

Nagarjuna Tempting Mega Fans For What? Without any second thoughts, few people say that King Nagarjuna is eyeing huge openings for his latest movie and hence the tempting game. Is that what happening between Nag and Mega fans now? Check this out.

During the audio launch of Bhai movie, Nag openly stated that the songs scored by Devi Sri Prasad for Bhai are of superior quality than what he delivered by Attarintiki Daredi. At a time when Pawan's Attarintiki Daredi is a smashing hit, a big hero like Nagarjuna commenting that his songs are better than that flick, is really surprising. Also the satire at the end of 'Bhai' theatrical trailer is directly connecting to Gabbar Singh. Apparently a side kick of Nagarjuna asks in the trailer why everyone is claiming that they will set the trend, while you're the real trendsetter. One will wonder why Nagarjuna is poking Mega fans with his pot shots at Pawan's flicks.

Cine observers feel that Nagarjuna is throwing these trump cards only to tempt Mega fans such that there will be huge hype and openings for his 'Bhai'. This latest action entertainer of our senior hero is hitting screens on October 25th.

What Tempted Nag To Release It? All of a sudden the buzz of 'Manam' has kept entire Akkineni khandan on top of the map again. It is like a sort of shock after watching the first look of this most awaited family multi-starrer of Tollywood. Let us see what Nag has to say all about this first look release.

King Nagarjuna says that he is quite excited about the 90th birthday of his legendary father Akkineni Nageswara Rao. While a legend turning 90 is big thing, acting like an energetic teen in that tender age is another big achievement for sure. These things have failed to control Nag's temptation and resistance when it comes to releasing 'Manam' first look.

'I cannot resist releasing first look of Manam as it happens to be the birthday for forever young dad', said Nag.

Akkineni is celebrating his 90th birthday on September 20th, and it is surely an exciting day for both Akkineni family members and fans too. Already 'Manam' posters have taken the celebrations to new level, and we have to see what more surprises Nag is actually planning for his dad.

Annapurna to hold four weeks workshop for engineering students Annapurna International School of Film and Media will conduct a four-week summer workshop on filmmaking for engineering students, beginning May 27, the institution said Tuesday.

The workshop covers script writing, basic camera operations, editing and sound mixing, with a focus on teamwork and creativity, said a statement by the school run by the family of legendary Telugu actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao.

“For many engineering students, the focus on technical studies and preparing for exams can squeeze out any time for creative endeavors. That’s why we have scheduled this workshop in the summer holidays, so that students can build their communication skills without impacting their studies,” said AIFSM president and popular Telugu actor Akkineni Nagarjuna..

Why Nagarjuna Is Delaying Manam? One of the prestigious projects started by Annapurna Studios these days is a film that features the three generations of Akkineni heroes. Titled 'Manam', it got Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya as heroes. Here is an interesting information about it.

By this time, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya are supposed to start the shooting of 'Manam'. After the super success of 'Tadakha', Chaitu is right now sitting idle with no shooting to attend. But it is heard that because of his father it is happening this way. Actually the shooting is supposed to start by May 1st week only and Nag has intentionally avoided it. Responding on this Chaitu stated that his dad can't actually handle the heat wave that is taking toll on Hyderabad at the moment. Right now Nag is chilling out in Slovenia, Europe, shooting for the songs of upcoming movie 'Bhai'.

Chaitu made it clear that once Nag is back from his Europe schedule, the process of filming 'Manam' will be started. That's a good news for Akkineni fans who are enjoying the success of Tadakha anyway.
