Shadow Movie Review


Venkatesh as ‘Radha’

Young Directer Maruthi has teamed up with Venkatesh for a new film with a classy title that suits Venkatesh image.

This will be a complete family romantic entertainer and a female name is considered as title ‘Radha’ for the films

Earlier, Venkatesh’s films with female name titles like Malleswari, Lakshmi and Tulasi were super hits and hope the same results are achieved with ‘Radha’ too . The movie will start after the shoot of Maruthi – Sirsh starer ‘Kothajanta’ movie.



A huge 'Shadow' of doubt lingering!

Shadow has been cleared by censors and the film is all set to release on April 26. It is good news for Venkatesh fans, however, the producers of the film are taking huge risk by releasing Shadow in heavy deficit. Suresh Babu took the initiative and releasing the movie through Suresh Distributors in some areas. They are planning a heavy release for this movie. That might help the film to get good openings all over.

Baadshah collections have come down and it is time for another biggie to hit the market to cash on summer holidays. Shadow has good elements to grab the attention of the masses. But the big question is how much it could collect at the box office? Will it be a safe venture for the makers and distributors. Distributors may recover their investment if the film does well.

The question is about the safety of Producers investment. A lot of money has been pumped into this film and it will have to collect over Rs. 35 crores from the theatrical business to put the producers in safe zone. Other rights of the film could help them leap into profit zone. But Venkatesh never had such a big hit in his entire career as a solo lead. Is this going to create wonders at box office. With Shadow's release confirmed on next Friday, there are still many doubts lingering over it. And lets hope it gets a 'shining' success.



Shadow Censor Report

Venkatesh’s upcoming action movie, ‘Shadow’ has completed its censor formalities today and awarded with U/A certificate.

Sources say, ‘Shadow’ is free make of Chiranjeevi’s flop movie ‘Lankeshwarudu’ .Members praised the Film as Whole some Family entertainment with good Action & Comedy.The first half is good and second half is pretty slow. Flashback episode is not up-to the mark. Overall movie is carrying a average report from censor board.

Meher Ramesh is directing the movie, produced by Paruchuri Kireeti. Venkatesh is playing a mafia don in this movie. Taapsee Pannu is playing the female lead. Actors Srikanth and Madhurima are also doing pivotal roles in the film.The movie will be releasing on Apr 26th.



No takers for Shadow in USA

One of the black listed director in USA market, Meher Ramesh’s Shadow is facing a hardship due to track record.

Meher got a black mark in the industry for his continuous flop flicks by making blunders out of heavy budgets . This has shown its effect in USA as No distributor is willing to take up this project for distribution, despite it is being a Venkatesh film who has a good viewership in USA.

Poor Venky did a mistake taking such a risky project believing this flop director , Hope all settles well before Shadow finally heads for a release.



Director confirmed for Venky’s Mookie film

Director G Ashok has officially confirmed for Venkatesh’s next project which is a ‘mookie’ cinema, like Pushpaka Vimanam.

Victory Venkatesh is very much interested in this silent film as Kamal Hasan did in early time of his career. ‘Pilla Jamindar’ fame Ashok got a green signal from the hero and Suresh productions will be producing it.

Venkatesh is currently has completed work of his next film, Shadow. The movie directed by Meher Ramesh is slated soon. On the other hand, venky is busy with Telugu remake of Bol Bachchan along side Ram.



Shadow in big trouble

Shadow is touted to be the high budget film in entire Venkatesh's career. The film's budget was overshot by a mile and the makers are finding it tough to release it on time due to lack of business. Venkatesh's successful film can make 25 crores from the theatricals. However, the buyers wouldn't risk that much on a film directed by Meher Ramesh, who has no single hit to his credit. Moreover, Meher's previous movie Shakti was a huge disaster.

None of Venkatesh's films (as solo lead) have done well in the recent past. He scored a genuine hit with Adavari Matalaku Ardhale Verule, which was released six years ago. It has been a long time since Venkatesh showed his real mettle as the lead man. An out of form Venkatesh and not so reliable Meher Ramesh are making it a burden for the producers as the budget went up to forty crores. The scenario of Shadow is similar to that of Dhamarukam, which eventually ended up as a loss venture, despite doing reasonably well at the box office.

Shadow was supposed to release for Ugadi, but the latest buzz suggests that it may not release until May as it is in a huge financial soup. Producers have to risk up to Rs. 15 crores if they have to release it now. So the film needs to be released during the right time. With Baadshah blazing all guns at the box office, it may not be wise for Shadow to come out now as it won't get good number of screens. But if the film is delayed too much it would have to compete with Iddarammayilatho in May. Not a comfortable position to be in.



Boothu director next with Venkatesh

It is common to see some masala content in films and that is usually the entertainment factor for many mass audience and front benchers. But there is one director who is becoming famous only for the ‘Boothu’ content in his film. He is none other than Maruthi and he has been scoring only hits with his dirty mind.

He came with ‘Ee Rojullo’ and scored a hit and now he has come up with one more hit film titled as ‘Bus Stop’. Latest we here, Maruthi has signed up for one more project and this one is big.

It is heard that Maruthi is expected to team up with Venkatesh for a new film and this will be a complete family romantic entertainer.



What Is This Youth Show Venky?

Family hero Venkatesh has given a taste of his class acting in the movie 'Seethamma Vaakitlo' recently. But it seems like he wants to take back audience to 90s again and here it goes.

A look at the songs of Venky's upcoming movie 'Shadow' is just a shock to tinsel town. We can see our star-hero dancing and going crazy like a boy in his youths when he is matching steps with tempting damsel Taapsee. All these days, Venky is resorting to some simple gracious movies, but this time he tried some mass on dance floor. Many say that director Meher Ramesh forced Venky for these new dances that will project him as youth icon rather a senior citizen. Venky's lady fans are just amazed and asking in excitement, what is this 'youth show'.

For example, the song 'Pilla Manchi Bandobastu Gundey' song is just amazing for its visual treat, not for the scenic backgrounds, but due to those mass steps of Venky. Let's hope all these things will be lucky for 'Shadow' at Box Office.



Venky’s tribute to Pawan Kalyan

As we all know Victory Venkatesh and Pawan Kalyan are best friends, Venky in Gabbar Singh getup is a Tribute to his friend Pawan Kalyan for GS’s splendid success at box-office, in his upcoming flick Shadow.

Venky imitated Pawan kalyan’s style and body language . Mehar Ramesh kept it as surprise till now and revealed it in the trailer of Shadow which has brought craze for the film among buyers.

Showdow is an action entertainer, venkatesh is playing a mafia don role and srikanth playing cops role .Taapsee Pannu is playing the female lead. Actors Srikanth and Madhurima are also doing pivotal roles in the film. Meher Ramesh is directing the movie, produced by Paruchuri Kireeti.



SVSC combo is back again

Actress Anjali who shot to fame in Telugu with the dubbed flick 'Journey' and multi-starrer 'Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu' has bagged another big project.

If the reports are to be believed, Anjali has been roped for the Telugu remake of Bollywood superhit 'Bol Bachchan'. She will be once again romancing Venkatesh on the silver screen. Their first flick happens to be 'SVSC' which went on to become a blockbuster and the chemistry between the two worked big time.

Touted to be a multi-starrer, the film stars Venkatesh and Ram playing the lead roles. Vijay Bhaskar of Nuvve Kavali and Nuvvu Naaku Nachav fame is directing this comedy entertainer. Sravanthi Ravi Kishore and Suresh Babu are jointly producing the flick which would hit the floors on March 15th.

For the first time in his career Ram will be sporting a 'clean shaven' look and his character would be hilarious from start to finish. His combination scenes with Venky will be powerful and entertaining. Good to see the multi-starrer trend picking up in Tollywood!



Anjali replacing Venky heroine

Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu fame Anjali has turned luck girl bagging roles back to back with same hero.

Anjali who was paired opposite to venkatesh in SVSC is once again opted for Vijay Bhaskar is directing Bol Bachchan remake in Telugu with Venkatesh and Ram in it. Venkatesh will be donning the role of Ajay Devagn while Ram will be doing Abhishek Bachchan role.

Anali will play opposite toi Venkatesh again , Earlier late Sondarya who was also known as Venky heroine and Both rocked the silver screen with back to back movies and now Anjali replacing Sondarya place for Venky sir.

It is learnt that the film’s cost is inching towards Rs 30 figure, thanks largely due to extravagant action sequences shot in foreign locations.

Actors Srikanth and Madhurima are also doing pivotal roles in the film. The producers had announced earlier that the movie will be releasing in the last week of March.



Venky’s thoughts again on Swami Vivekananda?

It is something that he always wanted to do and now finally Venkatesh is ready to essay the role of Vivekananda! After his colleagues like Balakrishna and Nagarjuna took up the roles of Lord Ram and Shirdi Sai Baba, Venky had resolved to do the same. Sources say this has been his long standing dream.

The actor is always known for his spiritual inclination and added that finding the right director and team to execute such a marvellous story took some time. The film is a biopic on the modern saint who was enlightened by his master Ramakrishna and went ahead on a sojourn to various countries to spread the message of peace.

What scared Venkatesh the most?

The reports of Viswaroopam crossing Rs 100 crore mark came as a big relief for one of the Tollywood senior heroes. It's none other than Victory Venkatesh! The reason behind it is not because he owns a stake in the film, but he just wants to see Kamal Haasan happy.

Venkatesh opines it's scary to even think what would have happened if either the ban wasn't lifted or Viswaroopam failed to hit the right chord with the audience as Kamal has mortgaged all his properties for making it.

According to Venky, Most of the Tollywood and Kollywood stars have played it safe while investing but Kamal is an exception. "An actor like Kamal who was in the Industry for several years could have easily bought many properties, but he believes in paying back to the Industry. Creative genius like Kamal can't restrict his imagination due to money constraints. He is one actor India Cinema will be proud off!," states the Daggubati hero.

Good to see a senior hero coming forward in support of his Eenadu co-star and once again showed all actors are one. Well done Venky!

Once Venky finished his speech and getting down from the ramp, a group of girl students stormed to him. They competed with each other to greet and shake hands with Venky. At a point, they are fighting with each other and pushing others to get a glance of their favourite hero.

We all know that family ladies have lot of inclination towards Venky, but this incident shows that college girls are also hardcore fans of this hero. Is this the effect of 'Seethamma Vaakitlo' brother character?

Salman’s secret lunch with Daggubati’s

Bollywood Super star Salman is getting closer and closer to Tollywood, especially the Daggubatis. May be Salman working on his master plan to sell his Dabangg2 to Daggubati’s

Salman Khan was in town to bless Malavika Bharat, and to make up for the fact that he missed her big T-town wedding. Sallu spent over two hours with Ramanaidu, Suresh Babu, Venkatesh and Rana, had lunch and brought flowers for his Tollywood colleagues.

The bond between Venkatesh and Salman Khan has strengthened over the years since they hit it off during a cricket tournament.

Venkatesh next Gabbar Singh of Tollywood ?

Victory Venkatesh to log into Pawan Kalyan shoe? yes say the rumourmonger .

Recently, Salman Khan’s super hit film Dabangg was remade in Telugu as Gabbar Singh which became a block buster and Dabangg’s squeal Dabangg2 released world wide last Friday, the movie got an average talk and after watching the movie Pawan Kalyan lost interest in the project .

Latest we hear, Venkatesh is showing interest as Pawan has dropped the project. And Pawan Kalyan has no objection for Venkatesh. Producer Bandla already registered a title’ Gabbar singh in Hyderabad’ and if every thing goes smooth the next Gabbar singh of Tollywood !!.

Earlier Venkatesh has steeped into Rajanikanth’s role for Chandramuki squeal Nagavalli and the film turned into an disaster as Venky was over showded by Rajinikanth’s image and the same might repeat .

SVSC new Teaser



Venkatesh Confirms One More Multi-Starrer

Looks like Vectory Venkatesh is in a mood of just only doing more and more multi-starrer films at this moment. He has done multi-starrer films in the past but this time he is doing these kinds of films with young generation hero’s. Everyone is aware of this upcoming multi-starrer film ‘Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’ with Mahesh Babu. Venky confirmed his next multi-starrer with energetic star Ram, which will be a remake of B-Town film Bol Bachchan, which stared Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan in Hindi. Venky will be portraying Ajay Devgn and Ram will be playing Abhishek role in Telugu. Home banner of Ram i.e Sravanthi Banner has bagged the remake rights of ‘Bol Bachchan recently. A senior director will take up the responsibility to shape this multi-starrer film, said sources. Shooting of this film will go on floor by mid of next year and rest of the cast & crew of this flick will be announced very shortly.



Venkatesh's Shadow under scanner

Venkatesh is currently busy with two films out of which one is a multistarrer with Mahesh Babu and the other one is Shadow, directed by Meher Ramesh. This film is a stylish action entertainer that is being made on a high budget. As per unofficial sources the total cost of this film is around 36 crore rupees.

Venkatesh doesn't have a film which collected a theatrical share of 25 crore rupees. Going by the track record of Meher Ramesh and the look of Venkatesh as Shadow, buyers may not shell out big bucks for this film. Which means this movie might do a pre release business of 18 to 20 crore rupees. Other rights of the movie may fetch another five to six crores and that means Shadow will have to release with a minimum deficit of 10 crore rupees.

Same problem has troubled the release of Dhamarukam. This film may not face release problems as there is Suresh Babu to back it up. However cost recovery seems highly impossible unless Shadow is a huge blockbuster and creates new records for Venkatesh. Senior heroes are facing problems in delivering big hits in the recent past as the audiences are more inclined towards watching the younger lot. Let's hope for the best.



Venky fans fire on DilRaju

As informed earlier , the postponement of Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu audio launch from Dec 13 to Dec 15th made Venky fans angry. They could not tolerate as they feel Dil Raju cheated their hero .

Venkatesh fans demanded their hero to talk to Dil Raju on this issue, But Venky rejected their demands saying it up to producer to decide and He don’t get involved in such petty issues . He don’t even feel bad if they miss his Birthday occasion.

Venky fans argue that Dil Raju should keep his word, if he cant keep he should not make such announcements further and hurt fans. Some on the even warned him with harsh words.



Venkatesh signs his 2nd multi starer movie

Victory Venkatesh on signing spree of multi starer movies, Venkatesh is accepting performance oriented roles sharing screen with young generation heroes.

Venkatesh ,Mahesh Babu multi starer ‘Seethamma Vakilo Sirimalle Chettu’ yet to release , Venky signed one more multi starer movie with Gen-X hero Ram .

Venkatesh will be playing the role of Ajay Devgn and Ram will be seen in Abhishek Bachchan role. Savanthi Ravi Kishore will be producing the movie.Other details will be revealed soon.



Venkatesh & Meher last hopes on ‘Shadow’

This movie is an action entertainer , the unit has taken extra care to shoot the film with latest technology with advanced motion cameras to catch the action scenes perfectly . Its new schedule will being in Hyderabad on November 20th for some left over scenes.

Taapsee Pannu is paired opposite Venky in the lead role while Srikanth and Madhurima are also essaying important roles. Shadow is produced by Paruchuri Kireeti under the United Productions banner. The film has soundtrack provided by Thaman



Why Venky Is Not Like Mahesh Among Fans??

Venkatesh is doing a big mistake accepting SVSC? In the combo of Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu the time when this movie was announced as a multi starrer, everybody expected that the movie would be a milestone in Tollywood. As the movie has not yet been released, at this juncture we can't say the movie's fate.

The buzz is that some of the followers of Venkatesh were hurt with the decision of Venkatesh being acted in the movie, SVSC. According to them obviously Mahesh may have a greater following than Venkatesh, because of this factor; in the media Mahesh will be given more importance than that of Venkatesh, he should play a dominant role in a multi starrer movie, if he accepts it.

The film unit came back to Hyderabad recently and it’s gearing up for the final schedule in which few scenes and a song are going to be shot in Hyderabad and Ramoji Film City.

Venkatesh new Multi-starrers with Ram

Victory Venkatesh is becoming king of multi-starrer films in Tollywood these days. He has done multi-starrer in past & he is working with Maheshbabu now in SVSC, which will hit silver screen on 21st Dec.

Right now latest news is Venkatesh is going to star in a multi-starrer with energetic Star Ram. Both these actors will share screen in the Hindi remake of ‘Bol Bachchan’ movie. This B-Town film rights are purchased by Sravanthi Ravi Kishore and shooting of this flick will start from next year. .



Shadow’ following ‘Rebel’

Victory Venkatesh for the first time in his career is coming up with the role of a mafia don and at an age when he should be thinking of getting into more senior roles, this character is definitely a challenge. The film we are talking about is ‘Shadow’ but more than that, it is heard that few other issues are emerging. According to inside talk from the cinema arena, it is heard that ‘Shadow’ has overshot the budget by a large margin and the film’s shooting is yet to be completed. This is just like ‘Rebel’ in terms of budget overshooting. With someone like Prabhas as the hero, ‘Rebel’ barely managed to survive. So, it will be really difficult for someone like Venkatesh to pull the film to a safe zone. Most importantly, director Meher Ramesh is another doubtful option. His films always have style and rich production but the content and stories are very hollow and stale. The true picture will be known only when the film releases.



Good response for Shadow teaser !

The first look teaser of Venkatesh’s next flick Shadow has been the talking point among Telugu cinema lovers on the social media. The first look was launched amidst much fanfare yesterday and it has generated a great response in general. Director Meher Ramesh is a very happy man. “I am over whelmed with the response to the trailers. I have been inundated with congratulatory calls from friends and well wishers,” says Meher Ramesh.

Venkatesh also sounds very upbeat about playing a mafia don for the first time in his career. “Well when I heard the script from director Meher Ramesh, I got very excited. The director has taken pains to give me a radical new look in the movie. This film is going to be a universal action film that can be enjoyed by audiences of all age groups,” says Venkatesh.



Pawan to work with Venky?

Power Star Pawan Kalyan and Victory Venkatesh are good friends in industry. Actually, Pawan was supposed to star in much awaited multi-starrer ‘Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’ but he walked out due to some personal reasons and then makers roped Mahesh Babu in place of Pawan. Then onwards, Venkatesh has a wish to work in a multi-starrer with his close friend and has been waiting for it to happen since a long time.

Latest we learnt that, recently Venky revealed his wish to Pawan and Power Star has promised to work for a film if a right script is found. Meanwhile, Venkatesh is working for ‘Shadow’ directed by Meher Ramesh. On the other hand, Pawan is presently doing ‘Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu’ in direction of Puri Jagannath. Hope a script will finalize soon and if this project materializes, that would be a full meal treat for both Venky and Pawan fans.



Shadow’s next schedule begins from Oct 8

The first look of Venkatesh, Srikanth and Taapsee starrer Shadow seems to have quite a lot people already. Venkatesh’s never before seen avatar and the action episodes have caught everyone’s attention and now director Meher Ramesh is all the more excited about the film. The film was being shot in Ramoji Film City for the past few days and the next schedule is going to commence from October 8 onwards in Malaysia. “Thanks a lot .all over great response for the first look..Shadow team heading to Malaysia again on 8th for a17days shoot.back by 27th,” Meher Ramesh posted on Twitter. The film has already been extensively shot in Langkawi and with this latest schedule, it’s likely to wrap up most part of its foreign schedule. Parachuri Prasad is producing the film. Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan have written the script along with Meher Ramesh. S S Thaman has composed the music. The film is gearing up for a big release in January, 2013.



Shadow First Look Teaser !

Victory Venkatesh’s stylish action entertainer ‘Shadow’ teaser has been unveiled few minutes ago. Venky is seen driving lavish bikes and the Daggubati Hero looks pretty stylish in a rugged new Avatar. However the credit goes to director Meher Ramesh for taking utmost care in designing this look. The visuals in teaser are eye catchy, very rich and the length is for about 1 minute 6 seconds. Interestingly, there is no single dialogue made apart of this official teaser.

It seems, Srikanth is playing a cop role who chases our don ‘Venky’. Overall, the teaser is well edited and is a treat for Venky fans. Taapsee Pannu is playing Venkatesh’s lady love and Madhurima will be seen opposite Srikanth. Paruchuri Kireeti is producing the movie while SS Thaman is scoring the music. Shadow is slated for Sankranthi



Shadow! Why So Hurry?

With Baadshah going out of race from Sankranthi 2013, Meher Ramesh's Shadow is the only movie that is going to compete with Ramcharan-Vinayak's Naayak for now. So, the movie is getting all things done in hurry and here is talk about it.

Director Meher Ramesh is known for his delaying schedules and late releases than the said time apart from his resounding flop record. But he is now hurrying to release the teaser of his upcoming Shadow that features Venkatesh and Srikanth very soon. Meher confirmed that they are all set to release the first look of Venky's Shadow by the evening of October 1st. One would wonder why they are releasing a teaser so early, when the movie release date is almost three months later. Maybe there is a business angle we should think about, but will it sustain the teaser power of Baadshah and Rebel is a big question.

Critics are saying that releasing a teaser is always right, but its untimed release is wrong. But wait and see what Meher Ramesh delivers this time!



Venky’s ‘Shadow’ teaser on 19th sep

Victory Venkatesh’s latest stylish entertainer ‘Shadow’ first teaser will be unveiled on September 19th. So, this is really great and breaking news for Venky fans.

Shadow is produced by Paruchuri Kireeti under United Movies banner.

Hero Srikanth is playing an important role and Madhurima will be seen as his lady love. Ace writers Kona Venkat and Gopimohan have provided script for this film while SS Thaman is scoring music. Shadow is slated to release for Pongal, 2013. Both Venkatesh and his director Meher Ramesh are badly in need of a success as their last few releases were flops. Hope ‘Shadow’ will bring a smile on both their faces..



Srikanth doing key role in Shadow

It looks like actor Srikanth has resolved to do special roles in T-town’s big films. After playing Laxmana in Sri Ramarajyam, the actor will essay the special role in Shadow starring Venkatesh and Taapsee. “His role is quite crucial for the film and he is doing a good job,” says director Meher Ramesh, who feels that every actor has significance in his action adventure. “Sometimes everything falls into place to make the film engaging and water-tight,” he adds. Looks like Srikanth is trying to strike a balance between playing leading man and doing special roles, to remain in the reckoning



That is Why He is Called Venky

Victory Venkatesh is known for his simplicity. He may be one of the star actors of Tollywood but Venky doesn’t have any egos and always maintains close relationship with all the co-stars. Venkatesh is presently working for multi-starrer ‘Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’ in the direction of Srikanth Addala and Meher Ramesh’s ‘Shadow’. Both the film shootings are progressing simultaneously.

Media and even the makers are highlighting only Super Star Mahesh Babu for SVSC and it seems Venky is not bothered about it. SVSC 1st trailer was unveiled on Super Star Krishna’s birthday and the second trailer will be launched on Mahesh’s birthday. Venky put his solo film Shadow on hold for some time for the sake of SVSC on the request of Mahesh. Venkatesh Fans say that, ‘That’s why He’s Venky.’ A man with no egos and no selfish agenda



SVSC heroine hikes remuneration

She is a Telugu girl, but currently one of the busiest actresses in Kollywood. Her most of the films there were critically acclaimed and commercially success movies.

Even filmmakers are ready to pay what Anjali asking.



Dil Raju Rubbishes SVSC Remake Rumors

Producer Dil Raju has rubbished the rumor that his upcoming movie 'Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu' is not a remake of of Bollywood blockbuster movie 'Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham'. Earlier, it was speculated in the media that 'SVSC' is inspired by a Bollywood movie.

Samantha and Anjali are the heroines and Mickey J Meyer is the music director. Srikanth Addala is directing 'SVSC' and Di Raju is producing the film under Sri Venkateswara Creations banner.

Venkatesh is a worried about his children

Victory Venkatesh , Tollywood’s senior most hero with almost 80% success rate to his credit and was part of Top 4 heroes . Though he has passed his prime he has been coming up with roles like a hero. But now, the question arises as to what is going to be the future plan of Venky now that he is reaching the brink of retirement as a hero. As such, Venky has 3 daughters and 1 son and the boy is very young and not settled.

Now that Venky has reached the end of his career he not in demand as much as Nagarjuna. The situation is the same even in ads and commercials market. Except Manappuram gold, there is no other assignment. So, what is his future plan? Is he really worried? He got a big home in 2 acre plot at Manikonda but he needs revenue for maintenance and giving to kids along with his own survival.

Apparently, Venky is in form to act but not on par with Nag. On the other hand, Nag doesn’t have so many issues because his sons are grown up. Like this, many are talking different ways with middle class mentality about Venky. But, is Venky worried about his future? Does he have to?



Venkatesh's 'S'entiment With 'SVSC', 'S' and 'SV'?

Sentiment- this is something which runs strong not just onscreen but off the screen too. And almost all in the film fraternity tend to run on some strong sentiments. One among them is Venkatesh and it appears that currently he is going through a letter sentiment.

Well, Venky’s movies have been starting with the alphabet ‘S’. Whether it is coincidence or the way the way he wants it currently he is busy with the shooting of two films titled ‘Shadow’ and ‘Seetamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’. And it is heard that the project after this is also with the same letter.

Reports say that Venky’s new project would be titled as ‘Swami Vivekananda’ based on the life of the great intellectual. Though nothing official has been announced about it, the talk is high that this project will materialize. While the sentiment part is fine, let us hope that another word also joins Venky’s list that is ‘S’uccess.



SVSC set for October release?

Victory Venkatesh and Superstar Mahesh Babu will be seen as brothers in the eagerly awaited multistarrer ‘Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’.

Venkatesh Leaves to Malaysia for Shadow

Victory Venkatesh will be heading to Malaysia to join the shooting of his forthcoming film 'Shadow'. Actor Srikanth is playing a pivotal role in 'Shadow' and Meher Ramesh is directing this action entertainer. Earlier, the unit has planned to shoot some action episodes in Mumbai, but due to the heavy rains, the schedule was canceled. Meher Ramesh will be picturising some important scenes on Venkatesh, Srikanth and Aditya Pancholi. Taapse and Madhurima have been roped in as heroines and SS Thaman is the music director. Paruchuri Prasad is producing 'Shadow' under United Movies banner.



Venkatesh’s Shadow moves to Malaysia

Victory Venkatesh’s upcoming film “Shadow” will begin its next schedule of shooting in Malaysia from the second week of July. The unit has to film scenes on Venkatesh and other cast in Mumbai but due to inclement weather and heavy rains lashing the city, the Mumbai schedule has been called off and the unit will now directly fly to Malaysia for the abroad schedule.

The movie was already shot in the locales of Hyderabad, Switzerland, etc. and the unit will leave to Malaysia for filming a song and couple of action scenes. Directed by Meher Ramesh, “Shadow” is an action drama, which has Venky playing the role of a don while Srikanth wil be seen as a cop. While Tapsee shares screen space with Venkatesh, Srikanth is paired up with Madhurima. Thaman is giving the soundtrack. Paruchuri Kireeti is the producer of the movie under United Movies banner.



Will Venkatesh do a Trivikram’s film?

Some time back it was buzzed that ‘victory’ Venkatesh has given the green signal for Trivikram Srinivas’ script, a family entertainer. It was also rumored that Venky took a long time to start rolling the camera, and as a result, an annoyed Trivikram went ahead with his next project “Julayi”.

Cut to present, Venkatesh is currently shooting for “Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu” and “Shadow” simultaneously. The actor will be wrapping up the shoot for theses films by July or August but then, Venky neither signed in on any other film nor principally gave the nod for any subject line. So will the star hero consider doing Trivikram’s film?

On the flip side, Trivikram, who has almost wrapped up the shooting of his upcoming film “Julayi” starring Allu Arjun, has not committed to any other project. His next movie with Pawan Kalyan is expected to start this year end, although there’s no official confirmation. The combination of Trivikram Srinivas and Victory Venkatesh earlier brought out hit films like ‘Nuvvu Naaku Nachav’ and ‘Malleswari’. So can we expect a Venky-Trivikram combo film this year amidst these ambiguities? Let’s hope so.



Venkatesh Visits Rana in KVJ Movie Sets

Sentiments and superstitions have a lot of space in film industry. Producers, directors and actors have a great belief in these concepts. Here we are referring to none another than Victory Venkatesh. Well the latest rumour is that Venkatesh has become a lucky charm and if he visits any film set, that movie will be definitely a blockbuster. It was said that Venkatesh has visited Mahesh Babu on 'Dookudu' and the film became biggest grosser of 2011, after that he met his friend Pawan Kalyan on the sets of 'Gabbar Singh' and this movie is creating new records in Tollywood.

Now the latest news is that Venkatesh visited 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum' sets to meet Rana Daggubati. Infact Venkatesh was supposed to do this movie but he opted out of the project in the eleventh hour. Now the film Nagar sources predict that Rana will score a hit with 'KVJ', thanks to the presence of Venkatesh.



Venkatesh, The Golden Leg

Tollywood is getting accustomed to hearing about this quirky superstition these days – ‘Victory’ Venkatesh turning out to be the latest lucky mascot. If the actor makes an appearance on the sets of a film, it has to become a blockbuster.

After dropping in on the sets of Mahesh Babu’s “Dookudu” and Pawan Kalyan’s “Gabbar Singh”, Venkatesh recently visited the sets of “Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum”, starring Daggubati Rana. Venky spent some quality time with nephew Rana and both the actors seemed to be in a genial mood. Now, surely this is a great sign for the cast and crew of “KVJ” if they believe in the superstition.

Mahesh Babu was going through a lean patch then with no hits in the last few years. And Venky dropped in on the sets of “Dookudu”, which turned out to be a blockbuster. The actor happened to drop in on the sets of Pawan Kalyan’s latest release “Gabbar Singh”, which saw Pawan striking the box office after a decade.

Looks like Venky has now decided to give Rana the breakthrough and lend more credence to the speculation. “KVJ film is directed by Krish (Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi). Nayanathara is playing the leady lady and Mani Sharma is composing the music.

We are talking about the trio of victory Venkatesh, towering hunk Daggubati Rana and Yuva Samrat Naga Chaitanya. The man to come up with this concept is none other than the movie mogul Ramanaidu. It is heard that Ramanaidu has been inviting scripts and storylines which suit the images of the trio.

Once the story is locked, the film would be hitting the floors. Currently, many scriptwriters and directors have been informed about this idea and whoever gets the right kind of subject, they will get to be part of this historical project. Let us see how soon this happens.

Is Venkatesh Still Worrying About Nagarjuna?

Though they are related to each other and hail from the same generation of acting, there is a huge difference between Venkatesh and Nagarjuna. Well, Venky has always focused on family oriented movies or at the most commercial mass entertainers. But that has not been the case with Nag.

He has come up with versatile roles over the years. And this is something which has reportedly worried Venky for a while. But the question still remains, is Venky still worrying about Nag? If he is, then he should be doing something about it. After a lot of time, he finally did a different role in ‘Nagavalli’ which drew a lot of criticism.

Later, an announcement was made about Venky essaying the role of Swamy Vivekananda and though a lot of hype and hoopla was created, everything has gone silent. That way, the great divide still exists between Nag and Venky. Nag is already on his way to come up as ‘Shirdi Sai Baba’ whereas Venky is still dabbling with his routine family and commercial roles.



Venky fans upset due to Mahesh

At the beginning stage of the multi-starrer project 'Seetamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu', the fans of Venky are miffed with the fact that Mahesh Babu is stealing all the lime light. Adding to Venky fans misery, Producer of Dil Raju has planned to unveil the first look of the film on May 31st. This particular date May 31 has a specific importance because it was superstar Krishna's birthday. Sometimes the fans of Venky get a doubt, 'Is their hero playing a character actor role in Mahesh's movie?' "The movie makers of SVSC aren't giving due respect to our Actor, who is much senior to Mahesh in the Industry. All they need is money," says a die-hard Venky fan.

During the opening ceremony of Victory Venkatesh’s new movie, tentatively titled 'Shadow’, Venkat jovially remarked that Tapsee was looking too skinny. “Put on some weight please, it will look great”, said Venkat. A simple and pleasant smile was Tapsee’s reply. The sentiment was echoed by other guests at the venue.

Tapsee has a busy year ahead with projects in multiple languages. In Telugu, she is currently busy with 'Gundello Godaari’ and 'Daruvu’. Will Tapsee heed Kona Venkat’s advice? Let us wait and see.


Taapsee approached for Venkatesh’s Shadow?

Venaktesh’s upcoming film in Meher Ramesh’s direction is going to be launched on January 25 in Ramanaidu Studios. The film has been tentatively titled as Shadow. After reports emerged that Richa Gangopadhyay has been cast opposite Venkatesh in this film, the latest buzz is that Taapsee has also been approached for one of the lead roles in the film. If she does sign on the dotted line, this will be her first film with Venkatesh. A formal announcement about the entire cast and crew of this film will be made soon. Venkatesh is going to play the role of a don in this film.

Meanwhile, the actress is currently juggling between three films including Chashme Baddoor, Gundello Godaari and Daruvu. After the debacle of Mogudu late last year, 2012 is turning out to be quite an eventful year for this actress. Great going Taapsee.


Venky – Meher Ramesh film muhurtam tomorrow

Victory Venkatesh is beginning a new film with Meher Ramesh and the muhurtam ceremony will be held tomorrow at Ramanaidu Studios. The movie has been tentatively titled 'Shadow’. Dr.Ramanaidu, Suresh Babu and other prominent members of the film industry are expected to attend tomorrow’s muhurtam ceremony. Regular shooting of the film is scheduled to begin from February.

Venkatesh is reportedly playing the role of a Mafia Don in the movie and Richa Gangopadhyay will be seen as the heroine. Script for this movie has been provided by Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan. Paruchuri Prasad is producing this film and music is being scored by Thaman


Bodyguard 10 days Krishna Collections

Victory Venkatesh has scored a good hit this Sankranthi with the family entertainer 'Bodyguard’. The movie has been doing well across all territories. We have received collection figures for Krishna district and the total 10 days Krishna share for the movie stands at approximately Rs 1 Crore. This is a very good figure for a Venkatesh film.

The movie has been directed by Gopichand Malineni and Bellamkonda Suresh is the producer. Trisha and Saloni are the heroines in this movie. Thaman has scored the music for this film.


వెంకీ-పవన్ మధ్య విబేధాలు అందుకేనా?

విక్టరీ వెంకటేష్-పవర్ స్టార్ పవన్ కళ్యాణ్ మధ్య విబేధాలు ఉన్నాయని, అందుకే వారు ఈ మధ్య ఎడమొహం, పెడమొహంగా కనిపిస్తున్నారని ఫిల్మ్ నగర్లో గుసగుసలు వినిపిస్తున్నాయి. వినడానికి నమ్మశక్యంగా లేక పోయినా ఇది నిజం అంటున్నారు చాలా మంది. మరి ఎందుకు ఇద్దరి మధ్య ఇలాంటి పరిస్థితి నెలకొంది అని కొందరు ప్రయత్నించగా ఆసక్తికర విషయాలు వెలుగులోకి వచ్చాయట.

ప్రస్తుతం వెంకటేష్ మహేష్ బాబుతో కలిసి ‘సీతమ్మ వాకిట్లో సిరిమల్లె చెట్టు’ అనే మల్టీ స్టారర్ చిత్రం చేస్తున్న సంగతి తెలిసిందే. దర్శకుడు శ్రీకాంత్ అడ్డాల కథ చెప్పిన తర్వాత మరో హీరోగా పవన్ కళ్యాణ్ అయితే బాగుండని భావించాడట వెంకీ. ఈ మేరకు దర్శకుడి ద్వారా అతనితో సంప్రదింపులు జరుపగా నాకు ఫ్యామిలీ సబ్జెక్టులు సరిపడవు అంటూ పవన్ తిస్కరించాడని అంటున్నారు. అందుకే వెంకటేష్ పవన్ కళ్యాణ్ అంటే ఎడమొహంగా ఉంటున్నారని అంటున్నారు.

ఇటీవల జరిగిన రామ్ చరణ్ ఎంగేజ్ మెంట్ వేడుకలో కూడా వీరిద్దరి మధ్య విబేధాలు బయట పడ్డాయి. జూ ఎన్టీఆర్ ఈ వేడుకలో పవన్‌తో మాట్లాడుతుండగా వచ్చిన వెంకటేష్ జూనియర్ ఎన్టీఆర్ ను పలకరించాడే తప్ప పవన్‌తో అంటీ ముట్టనట్లుగానే ఉన్నారు. మరి ఈ ఇద్దరి మధ్య సఖ్యత కుదిరేది ఎప్పుడో? అని టాలీవుడ్ లో చర్చించుకుంటున్నారు.

వెంకీ-మహేష్ సీతమ్మ వాకిట్లో సిరమల్లె చెట్టు షూటింగ్ ఇప్పటికే ప్రారంభం అయింది. ప్రస్తుతం వైజాగ్ లో షూటింగ్ జరుగుతోంది. ఇక పవన్ కళ్యాణ్ హరీష్ శంకర్ దర్శకత్వంలో గబ్బర్ సింగ్ చిత్రం చేస్తున్నారు.

Powerstar Pawan Kalyan and Victory Venkatesh who once claimed to best buddies are not on good terms with each other for sometime now. Differences propped up between the two stars and there were some concrete evidence to prove it.


Venky’s 'wife’ finally found

Victory Venkatesh’s 'wife’ has finally been identified. Confused? Don’t be. We are talking about his screen wife in the movie 'Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’. Anjali, the talented actress who impressed everyone in 'Journey’ is said to have been confirmed for this role. There has been a lot of confusion about the choice of actress for this role and the names of many heroines have made the rounds, including Anushka and Amala Paul.

Anjali seems to be a good choice for this character if we go by her performance in Journey. The movie has Venkatesh and Prince Mahesh Babu in the lead roles. Samantha will be seen as Mahesh Babu’s love interest in the movie. Shooting has begun in Visakhapatnam and Venkatesh is participating in the proceedings currently.

Srikanth Addala is the director of this project and Dil Raju is the producer. Music is being scored by Micky J Meyer.


Venky new film is Shadow?

Victory Venkatesh is all set to work with Meher Ramesh for a new film and Filmnagar sources say that the film has been tentatively titled 'Shadow’. If you recall, this was one of the titles reported to have been under consideration for Pawan Kalyan’s movie before Panjaa was finalized.

Venkatesh is reportedly playing the role of a Mafia Don in the movie and Richa Gangopadhyay is the heroine in the project. Noted script writers Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan worked on the project for a while and they are happy with the script they have readied. Paruchuri Prasad is producing this film. Music for this movie will be provided by Thaman. Venkatesh is fresh from the success of 'Bodyguard’ and Meher Ramesh will look to capitalize on that in order to erase the memories of his disastrous outing with 'Shakti


Salman appreciates Venky

Victory Venkatesh is extremely happy with the success of his Sankranthi offering 'Bodyguard’. The movie has been doing well and Venkatesh has been receiving a lot of compliments for his performance. But the best compliment seems to have come from none other than Salman Khan. “Salman is a good friend of mine. He has learnt about the movie’s great run here and he is extremely happy. He has congratutaled me personally for doing a good job”, said a visibly happy Venkatesh.

The movie’s platinum disc function will be held in Vizag today. Producer Bellamkonda Suresh has decided to celebrate the event in style as the project is on track for a very profitable outing. Gopichand Malineni has directed this movie and Trisha is the heroine in this film. Saloni has acted in a crucial support role.


Bodyguard fares well at Telugu Box Office

Venkatesh and Trisha Krishnan's underrated movie Bodyguard has fared well at the Telugu Box Office. The movie, which faced a tough competition from Mahesh Babu's Businessman, managed to make decent business in its first weekend.

Bodyguard, which is a remake of Malayalam blockbuster film of the same name, has been grandly welcomed by Venkatesh's fans. Though, it was not hyped like Mahesh Babu's Businessman, the film managed to pull the crowd to the theatres.

Trade reports say that on the opening day, in most of the theatres in Hyderabad Bodyguard almost ran into packed houses. An average of 80% occupancy has been recorded whereas in other parts of Andhra Pradesh, the movie reportedly witnessed 65-70% occupancy.

The makers of the film are confident of earning back the investment in a week's time. Bodyguard business is expected to gradually increase in the coming days.

However, Bodyguard is directed by Gopichand Malineni and produced by Bellamkonda Suresh. The movie also features Saloni Aswani and Prakash Raj in the important roles.


త్రిషకు నాలుగోసారి అదృష్టం

బరిలో ఉన్న ప్రత్యర్థులు ఎవరు అనే సంబంధం లేకుండా హీరోయిన్ త్రిషకు నాలుగో సారి కూడా అదృష్టం కలిసొచ్చింది. సంక్రాంతి బరిలో వరుసగా నాలుగోసారి కూడా విజయం తన ఖాతాలో వేసుకుంది. ఆమె వెంకీతో కలిసి నటించిన ‘బాడీగార్డ్’ మూవీ హిట్ టాక్ తెచ్చుకోవడమే ఇందుకు నిదర్శనం. వాస్తవానికి ఈ సంక్రాంతికి చాలా సినిమాలు రిలీజ్ కావాల్సి ఉన్నా చివరకు బాడీగార్డ్, బిజినెస్ మేన్, నందీశ్వరుడు మాత్రమే బరిలో మిగిలాయి. తొలి నుంచి మహేష్ బాబు బిజినెస్ మేన్ పై భారీ అంచనాలు ఉండటం, బాడీగార్డు సినిమా ఇప్పటికే వేరే భాషల్లో వచ్చిన సినిమాకు రీమేక్ కావడంతో...... చాలా మంది బాడీగార్డ్ విజయం పై అనుమానం వ్యక్తం చేశారు. అయితే ఆ అనుమానాలను పటాపంచలు చేస్తూ వెంకటేష్ తన మార్కను చాటాడు. ప్రేక్షకులు తన నుంచి ఏం కోరుకుంటున్నారనే దాన్నే సినిమాలో చూపించి సక్సెస్ అయ్యారు. ఈ విజయం వెనక త్రిష లక్కు కూడా కలిసి ఉందనే ప్రచారం కూడా సాగుతోంది. ఎందుకంటే గత సంక్రాంతి పండగలకు విడుదలైన ఆమె సినిమాలు ‘నువ్వొస్తానంటే నేనొద్దంటానా’, ‘వర్షం’, ‘కృష్ణ’ సినిమాలు భారీ విజయం సాధించడమే.

ప్రస్తుతం సినీ సర్కిల్స్ లో వినిపిస్తున్న ప్రచారం ప్రకారం ‘బిజినెస్ మేన్’ సినిమా భారీ ఓపెనింగ్స్ రాబట్టినప్పటికీ సినిమా యావరేజ్ టాక్ తెచ్చుకుందంటున్నారు. పైగా ఫ్యామిలీ జనాలు చూడటానికి ఇబ్బంది పడే వల్గర్ లాంగ్వేజ్ సినిమాలో ఉందనే వాదన కూడా వినిపిస్తోంది. అయితే బాడీగార్డు సినిమా అంచనాలకు భిన్నంగా సూపర్ హిట్ టాక్ తో ఫ్యామిలీ ఆడియన్స్ ఎంజయ్ చేసే పూర్తి వినోదాత్మక సినిమా ఉందని అంటున్నారు. ఏది ఏమైతేనేం...ఈ సంవత్సరం రెండు హిట్లతో టాలీవుడ్ ఖాతా తెరవడంపై పరిశ్రమలో ఆనందం వ్యక్తం అవుతోంది.

In last one and half decade every Pongal has seen release of at least three movies. Irrespective of number of movies, there used to be only one hit. For this year Bodyguard seems to be the winner. Trisha scores Pongal hit for the fourth time. Her three Pongal films Nuvvosthanante Nenoddanatana, Varsham, Krishna turned out to blockbusters.


'బాడీగార్డ్'కలెక్షన్స్ పరిస్దితేంటి?

సంక్రాంతి సందర్బంగా విడుదలైన మరో పెద్ద చిత్రం బాడీగార్డ్. వెంకటేష్,త్రిష కాంబినేషన్ లో వచ్చిన ఈ చిత్రం ఫ్యామిలీలకు నచ్చేలా ముస్తాబై వచ్చింది. రిలీజైన మొదటి రోజే పాజిటివ్ టాక్ తెచ్చుకుంది. మీడియాలోనూ,వెబ్ సైట్స్ లోనూ మంచి రివ్యూలు తెచ్చుకుంది. ట్రేడ్ లో చెప్పుకునే దాని ప్రకారం ..మొదటి రోజు ఆరున్నర కోట్లు వసూలు చేసిందని తెలుస్తోంది. మల్టిప్లెక్స్ లలోనూ, సింగిల్ స్క్రీన్ ప్రొజక్షన్ లోనూ ఆక్యుపసీ రేటు ..85 నుంచి 90% ఉంది. మహేష్ బాబు బిజినెస్ మ్యాన్ ఓ రేంజిలో కాంపిటేషన్ ఇస్తూండటంతో కాస్త ఇబ్బందిపడుతున్నట్లు తెలుస్తోంది.

అయితే టాక్ పాజిటివ్ గా ఉండటం, ఫ్యామిలీలకు నచ్చే ఎలిమెంట్స్ ఉండటంతో నిర్మాతలు ధీమాగా ఉన్నారు. రెండో రోజు కూడా ఆరు కోట్ల వరకూ కలెక్టు చేసిందని,సినిమా బడ్జెట్ కి అది మంచి రాబడే అని చెప్తున్నారు. ఇక ఈ చిత్రం మళయాళ రీమేక్ గా రూపొందింది. గతంలోనూ వెంకటేష్, త్రిష కాంబినేషన్ లో ఆడువారి మాటలకు అర్దాలే వేరులే,నమో వెంకటేశ చిత్రాలు వచ్చి విజయవంతమయ్యాయి. ఇప్పుడీ చిత్రం ఆ లిస్ట్ లో చేరింది. అలాగే సంక్రాతికి గతంలో వెంకటేష్ చిత్రాలు కలిసుందాంరా,లక్ష్మి చిత్రాలు వచ్చి సైలెంట్ హిట్ లుగా నిలిచిన సంగతి తెలిసిందే.

The occupancy rate of the'Bodyguard' was around 85 to 90% on single screens and multiplexes.


Venky gets it right. Almost!

Bodyguard has the right content. It is the context that is questionable. The issue is not a 50+ hero romancing a 30+ heroine. This has been done before. Kevin Costner warmed up to Whitney Houston in Bodyguard. Richard Gere paraded his charms to an even younger prostitute played by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. But in all these movies the context was set. Costner is an ex-secret service agent. While Richard Gere is a divorced business man on a night out in Hollywood Boulevard. In Venky’s Bodyguard this context is missing. And whatever is there appears to be a force fit. The same is the case with Salman’s Hindi Version too. But Salman has attitude to walk over pot-holed sized logical craters. He is the bad boy you root for. Venky on the other hand is renowned to do the right thing. He makes clean entertainers. And as the week progresses there will be many people who will question the entertainment value in the Trisha & Venky love saga. But the director in an interestingly woven climax irons out the wrinkles to a great extent. That could very well be the saving grace.


Venkatesh – Its not easy to do love stories at this age

Victory Venkatesh is all set to entertain the audience this Sankranthi with his offering 'Bodyguard’ . The movie is releasing on January 14th and the film is carrying a positive buzz. Venkatesh interacted with the press at Ramanaidu studios recently and here is the transcript for you folks.

Q) What are your expectations from the movie 'Bodyguard’?

Q) Bodyguard has earned success in three languages till now. This is the fourth version. What changes have been made to the script?

Q)How do you rate director Gopichand Malineni?
A) Director Gopichand has done a fine job. I have seen his earlier flick 'Don Seenu’ and I was impressed with his handling of the script. It is not easy for me to do love stories at this age. But Gopichand has handled the script well and he has brought out the film beautifully.

Q) What about the technical aspects?
A) Cameraman Shyam K Naidu has done a great job with the visuals. Kona Venkat has provided brilliant dialogues. Bellamkonda Suresh has not compromised on any aspect of the film.

Q) What are your upcoming projects?
A) My multi-starrer with Mahesh .’Seetamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’, will begin production from the 18th. I will also start work on Meher Ramesh’s film soon. My dream project 'Swamy Vivekananda’ will begin production from September.

వెంకటేష్ 'బాడీగార్డ్‌' కథేమిటి?

వెంకటేష్ హీరోగా గోపీచంద్ మలినేని దర్సకత్వంలో రూపొంది సంక్రాంతికి విడుదల అవుతున్న చిత్రం 'బాడీగార్డ్‌'. ఈ చిత్రం కథ గురించి దర్శకుడు గోపీచంద్ మాట్లాడుతూ...ఒక అందమైన అమ్మాయికి రక్షణగా నిలిచిన బాడీగార్డ్‌ ఇతను. ఒక పెద్దాయన చేసిన సహాయానికి కృతజ్ఞతగా అతన్ని దేవుడిగా భావిస్తూ ఆయన వెన్నంటే ఉంటాడు. ఆ పెద్దాయన కూతురుకి కొంతమంది నుంచి ప్రమాదం ఏర్పడుతుంది. అందుకే నమ్మకస్తుడైన ఆ యువకుణ్ని తన కూతురుకి రక్షణగా ఏర్పాటు చేస్తాడు. అక్కడి నుంచి ఆ బాడీగార్డ్‌కి ఎదురయ్యే తమాషా అనుభవాలు... సరదా ప్రేమాయణంతో కథ ముందుకు నడుస్తుంది అన్నారు.

అలాగే... తొలి సగభాగంలో వినోదంపరంగా వెంకటేష్‌ విశ్వరూపాన్ని చూడొచ్చు. క్లైమాక్స్ సన్నివేశాలకు ముందు నుంచీ వచ్చే ఘట్టాలు చిత్రానికి ప్రాణం పోస్తాయి. మనసుని హత్తుకొనేలా భావోద్వేగాన్ని పండించారు. అలాగే ఆయన చిత్రాల్లో పాటలు ఎప్పుడూ బాగుంటాయి. దీనికి తమన్‌ అందించిన పాటలూ కలిసొస్తాయి. ఇక మూడు భాషల్లో విజయవంతంగా నవ్వుల్ని పంచిపెట్టాడు 'బాడీగార్డ్‌'. తెలుగులోనూ అంతకు రెట్టింపు స్థాయిలో వినోదాన్ని పంచుతాడు. ఈ కథకి మాతృక అయిన మలయాళంలో దిలీప్‌ నటించారు. తమిళంలో విజయ్‌, హిందీలో సల్మాన్‌ చేశారు. ఎవరు ఈ సినిమా చేసినా... కథ మాత్రం వెంకటేష్‌ కోసమే పుట్టినట్టుగా అనిపిస్తుంటుంది. ఆయన హావభావాలకు సరిపడే కథ ఇది అని ధీమాగా చెప్పుకొచ్చారు. బెల్లంకొండ సురేష్ నిర్మించిన ఈ చిత్రంలో వెంకటేష్ సరసన త్రిష హీరోయిన్ గా చేసింది.
