Shekar is on the verge of divorce with his wife Swati (Pooja Kumar) who is vexed with Shekar’s astonishing work – life balance. On a bright sunny day he accidentally stumbles on to a bunch of International Nuclear Trade Criminals & their bounty base , A Vessel Named PSV Garuda Vega.

Then the chase begins & narrows down on a Professional Hacker & Communication expert (Niranjan)  who is the source of all the story , The chase finally graticules to George (Kishore)  who is the master bad guy of them all. How Shekar eliminates George forms the rest of the story which is heavily influenced by special op video games & Hollywood war films , Check out the Bombastic Interval Sequence , It’s Very Rare in contemporary Telugu Cinema. Kudos for that Praveen.

 

Artists Performances .

Rajashekar : The 55 Year old actor is present everywhere , So expect his mannerism of a angry young man , Angry Elder Guy to be precise  , He excelled in his role & gave his best to suit his role of a secret agent , Praveen Sattaru managed to fit him in this Racey action adventure. Rajashekar is back in business after ages.

Pooja Kumar : The most comical character of the movie , The Hollywood Actress did  well for her role of a vexed wife with a bound by duty husband , Her oldish look kept youngsters giggling at places.

Kishore : Surprisingly very less screen space for a main villain , But he is an asset to the movie.

Shradda Das : A Reporter who just watches everything & talks only when required.

Supporting Roles by Ravi Varma & Charandeep will make them busy for the coming days , As they performed brilliantly & not to forget The Henchmen Role by Adarsh which is raw & fresh &   Adith Arun  who gave in a decent performance as a hacker on the run for his bounty.

Sunny Leone’s Song is just a white wash to make people realize it’s a Telugu Movie.

Comedy by Posani & Pruthvi are apt and go with the flow.

 

Technical Department

The Ex IBM Manager Praveen Sattaru is a Director with a vision & doesn’t like things to be regular , Which is clearly seen in the movie , He Sprinkled a heavy Hollywood flavor   in the movie , His ability to narrate a story is absolutely stunning , Making things normal yet spicy is one more trick to the trade, Praveen is the main gut for PSV Garudavega , If the Masses accept him , Then he is sure to conquer major stake in Tollywood in the coming days.

Cinematography needs to be appreciated on a larger scale, PSV Garuda Vega is technically a brilliant movie with stunning cinematography , The 5 Member team gave their best & that’s clearly evident on the screen.

Music by Bheems Cecirelio & Sricharan Pakala is the highlight of the movie , Thought the songs are average , The duo concentrated on Back Ground Score , Which is surely the next level.

Editing is Crisp , There could have been some cuts but the director made sure the 2:40 minutes story is said well. But anything beyond 2:20 minutes these days is a rare case.

Stunts play a major role in the movie , The Makers hired the best guys in business , Praveen Sattaru made sure the stunts are not funny & kept them neat & subtle.

Jyostar Enterprises Producers Koteshwara Raju & Murali Srinivas  are the main people , Who should be appreciated for the project of this size to be done with no star value stars, They thought beyond money & entrusted on the director’s vision . Which is a welcome sign for Telugu Cinema.

Overall Report.

Very less can we see a movie like this these days Digital Hieroglyphics , Cryptographic Sequences & Tons of references to chemical science & Satellite Bugging !!! That’s pretty serious stuff  in main stream Telugu cinema which  is  a daring attempt . PSV Garuda Vega  Makers made it clear to the public that beyond pseudo Heroism & chasing Glamdolls ,  There are untold stories about our secret agents .

Praveen said some of those with narrative brilliance loaded with technology & gadget references which will surely make us  realize that we can make movies like Hollywood. Having said that , A  Concept embedded cinema with layers of investigative analysis is what the team has offered us , Not Sure with the Masses but the Multiplex Crowd & Educated Youth will love this movie. The Last time we saw some engaging content was in Vijay’s Thupaki & Mahesh’s  Spyder both made by A.R.Murugadoss.

What is it All About – PSV Garudavega – Pre Release Analysis.

So , The Day is finally here , PSV Garuda Vega the most anticipated winter movie in Tollywood is going to release the day after tomorrow.

So What is the movie all about , And what can we expect from the movie made on a gob smacking budget of 25 – 30 crores in this  unseasoned release time , Well we all have to brace ourselves as the recent Pre  Release events about the movie have become stage for a mixed bag of emotions phenomenon.

Be it the heart wrenching emotional speech by Dr.Rajashekar while some call it as a after chiranjeevi brawl !!!  , Once the Heart throb of Ladies in the 80’s is vouching on this movie as a comeback film. On the other hand we have the unique director Praveen Sattaru’s Confidence filled with anguish on the CBFC behavior towards his film !!! who showed his versatility in film making with Chandamama Kathalu  LBW & Guntur Talkies.

So What can we expect from the team which is going to take us on a ride with its most advanced “Multiplex” Only Story line , Be Rest Assured PSV Garuda Vega will not find  the Massy areas as it is way beyond the understanding  ability of a commoner , By the look of it , You should be fed with Hollywood cinemas since childhood to understand something so technical like this., We have technical references towards laser aided weaponry,  High End Surface Computers , Expert Marksmen , Terrorist Busting Strategies , Nuclear Weaponry , Gosh there is so much beyond comprehension . It is aimed to serious cinema lovers & weekend time passers expect a larger CG Show like Bahubali !!! Well Annapurna Team Worked on it You See at least Bahubali Level is expected  , Not Sure of  what the ex IBM Manager Praveen Sattaru Planned for us !!!

Why did Praveen Sattaru choose Rajashekar , Pooja Kumar , Shraddha Das, Kishore etc to make such achievement , The Earlier attempts towards War & Spy Based movies like Ghazi , Spyder , Komaram Puli were done by well established stars & on the whole Only Ghazi tasted success ,Thanks to Rana for Ghazi ,  A genuine effort with his presence , Seems Praveen Sattaru is only vouching on one thing to make PSV Garudavega a Hit at the Box Office. S C R I P T is the hero for Garudavega , Hence Proved.

 

 

Some Awesome Features about PSV Garudavega .

  1.  It is the highest budgeted movie ever to be made in Dr. Rajashekar’s  Career which spawned for over 3.5 decades. PSV Garudavega is made on a mouth staggering budget of 30 crores , Keeping the good will & brand value of Hero & Director in Mind. M Koteshwara Raju & Murali Srinivas are 2 passionate producers to hone a risk like this in main stream Telugu cinema dominated by star families.
  2. PSV Garudavega is the First Main Stream Telugu Movie captured in lens  by 5 Cinematographers. (Anji , Suresh , Shyam , Gika , Bakur). So Expect the chase cam & underwater action sequences with some mind blowing drone shots of Darjeeling & Georgia.
  3. Sunny Leone is said to be appearing in a special item song , On a humongous Dhaba set erected in Mumbai. The Movie Prime Scenes are shot in  multiple shoot locations of Georgia , Thailand ,Singapore & Malaysia.
  4. PSV Garudavega is the First Telugu movie portraying Veteran Military Expert in negative role for a plot line based on the chaos theory.
  5. Indian Star Tortoise often called in Telugu As “Nakshatra Tabelu” regarded as a exotic pet & threatened species  “Geochelone elegans”  whereabouts & abrief history  & illegal trade in Hyderabad is being exposed for the first time on Indian Celluloid.
  6. Sricharan Pakala & Bheems Cecirolio are the 2 Music Directors composing tunes for this movie .
  7. Premale & Deo Deo are the 2 Songs in this movie.
  8. First Science Fiction Thriller to be made with No established Star of Tollywood.
  9. Russian Stunt Choreographer David Khubu & Thai Stunt Master Nang choreographed & performed the stunts of this movie with minimal safety equipment .
  10. The Movie is finding it hard to find distributors in Telangana & Andhra Region as Rajashekar is almost forgotten & has least craze in youth .

 

 

So , What is that one thing lingering in our mind about this movie , The Makers have really risked their money , A Bounty of 30 crores with a No business star , Who lost his glory in the early 2000’s .

Well , Telugu audience make it a point to go to a movie every Friday , The First Day First Show crowd are still present so if Praveen Sattaru’s Hardwork  & Strategy strikes the right chord The movie is sure to go places , So All we can say is , Good Luck PSV Garuda Vega Team,.

If the Movie Works out well on the commercial stance as well . Then Thumbs Up Guys , You  Have started a new trend called Science Fiction Thrillers in Main Stream Telugu Cinema.

Don’t even think of releasing this movie for the masses , It is surely aimed at the classy audience . A Multiplex Movie for sure , But Tamil cinema is never to be taken short of , they can surprise us with adding the Masala wherever needed , The heroine is not yet shown , Probably she is more than the damsel in distress.

Analysis 

Apart from being sarcastic in the autopsy , Praveen Sattaru is one guy with guts , Rajashekar whose face got forgotten by many in cinema halls is coming back as a National Investigative Agency Officer , Kudos for the trust & Confidence on the subject Praveen. You have won our respect with Chandama kathalu , Certainly your flavor is different from others. LBW , Guntur Talkies might give you all a idea of the versatility of Praveen Sattaru.

Now Being Frank it takes a Rajamouli or Shankar to make the single theater  crowd to sit with wide open mouths , especially if it’s CG that’s playing on screen , Situation Reference of Bahubali & Robo  . But an attempt is all we need  as once said , So Purely for the Multiplex crowd who watch movies on weekends , Lets hope that sunny Leone trick will pull the crowds to the single screens .

They already gave the story line to us , As this action thriller is done with confidence on the subject , And giving a known face as a senior anti  terrorist officer is a good choice ,  Will surely make it big on the first day as November 3rd is fast approaching . Looks Hollywoodish in many frames . Special Shout Out to the Musicians Bheems & Sreechandra , Awesome work to match the pace of super speed screenplay.

All we can say is all the best for such bold attempt , If it works out well , Than it is a welcome sign for Tollywood . And we do know what it takes to endure that travel from paper to celluloid.

The Mass Director with a Classic Midas Touch – Happy Birthday S.S.Rajamouli By Venkatesh Veeravarapu

When have you last seen someone , Not Believing God  yet making a finest caricature on the Indian Celluloid called Bahubali. Yes we are talking about the one & only director in Indian Cinema ,  Who was ready to risk his career of 1.5 decades for one single movie which changed the face of Indian Cinema , And Bringing glory to the film field . Yes as he celebrates his 44th Birthday , Lets Know more about the Maverick & Out of the Box Director Padmashri Koduri Sri Sailasri Rajamouli most famously known as S.S.Rajamouli – The Maker of Bahubali.

Born in the year 1973,Raichur Karnataka , Rajamouli is the only son of the most celebrated film writer K.V.Vijayendra Prasad & Rajanandini , Due to his father’s migratory work flow Rajamouli never shared a common place of stay like his cousins Keeravani , Sreelekha & Kaanchi , This became an advantage to the master story teller of our generation  , He narrates story very well which touches everyone we see on a daily basis ., Maaking his stories come to life both on the screens & in our imaginations.

Rajamouli on the other hand never made it to school & colleges on time , As he mentioned the poverty they had faced in his young age , His Father & uncle used to be ghost writers in the film industry & with their meager earnings they struggled really hard to make things meet even though they come from a rich & affluent family !! But all these situations didn’t change the mind set of Rajamouli who was determined to make his mark in the film industry by telling stories , Which were never ever heard of , So he started up his film career under the guidance of his guru Kotagiri Venkateshwara Rao , in the editing stream & gradually came into notice under the directional supervision of Raghavendra Rao BA , The  Top notch & Influential film maker of Tollywood, Rajamouli’s first directorial venture was a Telefilm called “Shantinivasam” Starring Yester year actor “Ranganath” aired on etv, which got him name & fame.

Rajamouli’s Career Path.

Rajamouli always quotes his favorite actor to be Jr.NTR , As they both stood up with each other since the beginning of their careers , Student No.1 which came in the year 2001 , Was one of a kind out of the box movie featuring Young Tiger NTR as a convict who goes to study Law , Bashing goons when required with the trademark Dialogue “Narikesta” which got NTR huge mass following & impressed families as well.

His next venture Simhadri became an Industry hit in those days by minting 220Million $ worldwide , Which is an amazing record by a 3rd movie hero. The specially designed Massive Axe became a cult weapon for the masses !!!

Sye is yet another out of the box movie of this Massy director , Who gave  a new flavor of sports drama college film  introducing a never ever heard of game called rugby to  south Indian Cinema , Making Nitin a strong contender at the box office .

Magadheera , Rajamouli sculpted out Magadheera based on a decades old script written by his father Vijayendra Prasad to Super Star Krishna , The Movie based on Rebirths became an Industry hit of 2009 , And is till considered one of the finest visual treats ever made in Tollywood.

Maryada Ramanna came in a breezy family entertainer , Making way for Comedian turned hero sunil to become a star in Telugu Cinema.

Eega is by far the most advanced movie ever made on a non hero based movie in Indian Film Industry , where a housefly plays the life & death game with a stronger opponent like Kiccha Sudeepa.

  10. He is the one of the very few directors , who will Publicly give suggestions & applause for other directors. He even produced a movie called Andala Rakshasi which didnt fare well at the box office.
  11. He considers Trivikram & Sukumar as his strong opponents.

So , Majority People see him as a game changer of Telugu Film Industry , But he is one director who doesn’t believe in Rat Race corporate culture, But often takes his sweet time to complete his projects.

So As per the latest update we heard from him , He is eager to make a film with No Visual Effects at all as his next project , Which seems quite absurd for Some of us , But Its Rajamouli Guys his Stamp is different.

We at www.silverscreenlive.com wish a Happy & Prosperous Birthday to The Modern Day Vishwakarma of Telugu Cinema., #HappyBirthday #SSR.
