So I've been trying to watch more South Indian films lately. More like catch up on the good Telugu and Tamil films. Next thing you know, I'll be watching more Bengali and Kannada films, as well. If only I was able to have more access to South Indian films. Does anyone know a good rental place in Atlanta to get South Indian movies?
Maybe I'm a sucker for an action guy who is invincible, ahem Allu Arjun. It's definitely the characters that is shown that I fall in love with. In this film, Mahesh just spells out...I don't even know the words to describe him. He's this tough guy who I find so charming.
One of the most popular and well-known Telugu actors.
Shruti is gorgeous girl who works and supports her mother and younger brother. She is in love with Pandu but he's nothing but trouble. Yet, she still yearns for him.
Ileana D'Cruz. Really cute girl who reminds me of Amrita Rao in the looks department but that's it. Not impress with her acting. But this is the only movie I've seen of hers and wouldn't mind watching another film of hers.
Ali Bhai is the don of all dons. Just hearing his name, you will be afraid.
Prakash Raj is always a pleasure to see. Whether he's playing the loving father in Bommarillu or an overprotective father with negative shades in Bunny, he's one of the best actors in South India.
Bal Reddy wants Pandu in his gang and works for Ali Bhai.
Mona (Jyothirana) is a villian who likes Pandu's toughness.
Inspector Pshupathy (Ashish Vidyarthi) isa corrupted cop and works for Ali Bhai.
ACP Syed Mohammed (Syaji Shinde) is the Assistant Police Commissioner who wants to put Ali Bhai behind bars.
Mahesh Babu's amazing dancing is what makes me enjoy the songs even more. Songs are catchy and up-beat.
Song #1 - "Samarane"
The one and only Pandu. Love him or fear him.
Love his dancing!!
Song #2 - "Deva Deva Deva"
Pandu falls for Sruthi at first sight.
Again, love the dancing.
Song #3 - "Chalega Chalega"
Pandu and Sruthi hangs out
Song #4 - "Gala Gala Paaruthunna"
My favorite song from the film, love how it's pictured. Colors are beautiful.
Song #5 - "Ippatikinna"
Item song featuring one of the most famous item girls, Mumait Khan.
Song #6 - "Chudadantunna"
Pandu and Sruthi in love
But I love you......
I spy a Shilpa Shetty poster.
Just like Madhumasam, sublimal message before movie starts
And Mahesh Babu smoking....
Pokiri is a masala movie with every genre you can think of -- comedy, action, love, drama. I looove that. It's been a while since I've seen a masala movie in Bollywood. Now, it seems that film makers want to make a movie suitable for Hollywood aka movies that will hit the Oscars and attract Western viewers. Well, I have no problems with that. However, you can never win. You have some people who think Indian scripts will never pass the masala formula and complain that Aamir has gone downhill after doing Ghajini. Then again, you have people who still wants the masala formula. No matter what. Someone will always say something and not everyone will ever agree on everything.
Having said all of that, Pokiri is a very violent film. Someone's getting shot left and right from beginning to end. If you like movies like Ghajini (Tamil & Hindi) that has a little of everything -- drama, action, comedy -- then you will like Pokiri. There's actually more going on in the movie, lots of sub-plots but didn't want to list them all.
