Munich, radiant smile, a seductive glance: it takes super model Naomi Campbell only three seconds on the red carpet to win over the crowds.
Admiring photographers call out to her, while the teenagers behind the barriers are so nervous they can't say a word.

Poor response from Non-Bengali audiences
for 'Bong Connection' :
Cinema from West Bengal made a valiant attempt at scripting success by releasing "The Bong Connection" in several Indian cities but saw its fortunes nosedive at the box office, raising questions about the ability of the eastern film industry to offer successful commercial fare to a larger audience group. The film, directed by Anjan Dutt and starring Victor Banerjee, Parambrata Chatterjee, Raima Sen and Shayan Munshi, narrates the story of two Bengali boys - one who comes to India from the US in search of his roots and the other who goes to the US thinking the West has more to offer - through a satirical plot. But the English/Bengali movie, which intended to make audiences laugh at the intrinsic eccentricities of a typical Bengali family, fails to convey the satire to audiences not familiar with how Bengalis react to certain situations and their lingo.

Aroona Irani's item song for Ektaa
Almost four decades after actress Aroona Irani sizzled on screen to R.D. Burman's song "Dilbar dil se pyare" in "Caravan", she will dance to the same number again for episodes of Ektaa Kapoor's "Teen Kahaaniyan, Teen Raaz" to be telecast Monday and Tuesday.
"This was Ektaa's idea. And, of course, I couldn't say no to her. She's such a sweetheart," Aroona told "In fact, I originally performed the 'Dilbar' number with Ektaa's father Jeetu-ji (Jeetendra). Those days I'd constantly run into Shobha-ji when she used to drop in to meet her husband. Then Ektaa was born. Now she is a grown-up girl. But she isn't the least aware of how big she has become. That's the secret of her success," she added.The veteran actress is currently acting in Ektaa's long-running soap "Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki" and calls it one of her most interesting roles.So how did the "Dilbar" reprise happen? "Very simple!" said Aroona. "Ektaa asked, I agreed. Of course, our choreographers Harshal and Vitthal have made the steps very different. And I've performed the song in a sari, whereas in the original I had danced in banjaran (gypsy) costumes. All this makes a lot of difference. But I really enjoyed myself."
Aroona's own production house is about to unleash two daily soaps. "The first - called 'Doli Sajake' - starts April 30 on Sahara. I've given myself a role in the soap. The second is for Zee. Our movies just don't have a proper place for an actress like me. I'm keeping myself as busy as possible. I want to die working," she added.
Genelia is fans' choice for new film
Kannada cinema fans have voted for Genelia to play the heroine in a forthcoming film.
Fans were asked to choose one from a short-listed panel of four actresses.
The voting was done through mobile messages and magazines. Genelia beat Asin, Bhumika and Trisha to be chosen for the lead role in "Sathyam in Love". Popular star Shivaraj Kumar will play the male lead in the film.
I enjoy both cinematography and direction, says Dinesh Babu
Bangalore, Cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Dinesh Babu is a name to reckon with in the Kannada film industry. He is one of the few directors whose art is firmly founded in photography. "I started my career as a photographer and, even after I became a director, I have worked as a cinematographer for most of my films. I enjoy working both as a director and as a cinematographer." After working as a cinematographer in more than 30 Tamil films, he debuted as a director with the Tamil movie "Ananda Aradhanai". But it was the Kannada film "Suprabhatha" that gave his career a new turn. There was no looking back for him after that. "A chance meeting with Vishnuvardhan in Chennai made me sit and write a different type of script for a Kannada film. Though he was already a big star in the Kannada film industry then, he told me I should write a story without bothering about his screen image. That is how the story of 'Suprabhatha' was created." Apart from being a hit filmmaker, Dinesh Babu is also a trendsetter. He is the one who introduced a hi-definition digital camera in "Magic Ajji" and "Kanakambari". Right now he is doing a comedy with actor Jaggesh. "It will be an out-and-out comedy on the lines of 'Hendthige Helthini'. Another film is on the cards for producer Ramesh Yadav with 'Nenapirali' Prem as the hero."
Excerpts from an exclusive chat:
Q: Can you tell us something about your life before you came to the Kannada film industry?
A: I am from Kerala. I was interested in films from my childhood. I went to the Pune Film Institute for a course in cinematography. I got my first break as a cinematographer in director R. Selvaraj's "Railway Platform". My work was appreciated and I started getting offers. I have worked in more than 30 Tamil films including "Udayageetham". I got into direction with the Tamil film "Ananda Aradhanai".
Then a chance meeting with Vishnuvardhan in Chennai made me sit and write a different kind of script for a Kannada film. Though he was already a big star in the Kannada film industry then, he told me that I should write the story without bothering about his screen image. That is how the story of "Suprabhatha" was created.
Q: You have done many films with Vishnuvardhan, but it is "Suprabhatha" that is remembered all the time. Was it difficult to create another film like that?
A: I don't agree. Even "Laali" is being talked about in superlatives to this date. Vishnuvardhan got his best actor award for this film and I got the best director award.
Yes, I did many films with Vishnuvardhan, and I am proud to say that they were different from each other. I did a revenge drama like "Nishabdha" and the narrative technique was Western. I took a huge risk in this film by making it without any songs. I made many comedies as well.
Q: "Amruthavarshini" is another trend-setting film you made with Suhasini and Ramesh Arvind. Did you base this script on a Hollywood film?
A: Many people have asked me the same question again and again. I would like to clarify that I might have been inspired by an English novel before I started working on the script. But I shot the film mostly in Kodai and Ooty and most of the picturisations were spontaneous and decided on the spot. It was technically my best film and my best script. I got an award for best scriptwriting for the film.
Q: Anant Nag is another favourite actor of yours. But you did only comedies with him. Why didn't you try to make an emotional film with Anant as he is such a versatile actor?
A: I had to make commercially viable films with Anant who, as you said, is certainly a complete actor. He is also my favourite actor. My first film with Anant was "Hendthige Helthini", and it was a murder mystery laced with comedy.
Then a series of films brought out the best in Anant. I used him in the recently released "Neenello Naanalle", based on the Telugu hit "Nuvvosthaanante Nenoddantaana". And I enlarged an entire comedy sequence to showcase his talent.
Q: Most of your films are based on your stories, but there have been exceptions like the remakes -- "Chitra" and "Neenello Naanalle".
A: I would have preferred to make original films, based on my own scripts. But sometimes, commercial compulsions and pressures of relations in the industry have made me do the remakes.
Q: You have also worked with young stars like Upendra in "Hollywood", Ravichandran in "Panduranga Vittala" and Puneet Raj Kumar in "Abhi", besides a multifaceted personality like Shankar Nag.
A: Yes, you are right. Thankfully, I have carved out a name in the Kannada industry. I can go to any big hero with a script and I am sure I will be heard with rapt attention. All the people you have mentioned above are talented and I had an exciting experience working with them.
I did a film in 48 hours with artists like Shankar Nag and Anant in the lead and it was a wonderful experience. I set the trend and, thereafter, there were many attempts to make the film in 48 hours and 36 hours, and now a film has been made in just two hours.
Q: You have also worked as a cinematographer. Which work is more satisfying to you?
A: I started my career as a photographer and even after I became a director, I have done cinematography of most of my films. I enjoy working both as a director and as a cinematographer.
Direction is a creative job where you have to create something and channelise as well as supervise the work in other technical departments. That way, a director is like a painter who makes use of the canvass, brush and the paint.
But working as a cinematographer is a tension-free job as you are not responsible for a film's success or failure.
Q: You were also a trendsetter in using a hi-definition digital camera for the first time in the country.
A: Yes, I used the high-definition camera technique in two of my films - "Magic Ajji" and "Kanakambari" - with different types of stories. The 'HD cam' allowed me to do on-the-spot colour corrections and helped me see the result of what I had shot almost instantaneously.
The camera has a set of built-in filters, which required minimum lighting. Above all, most of the post-production features can be incorporated at the production stage itself.
But the post-production work took over 10 months, which included incorporating 40-minute-long graphics. A team of 20 people from Mumbai and Chennai worked to put the graphics together. The graphics included juxtaposing 2D and 3D animation graphics.
Q: What are your future projects?
A: I am doing a new comedy film with Jaggesh as the hero. It will be an out-and-out comedy on the lines of "Hendthige Helthini". Another film is for producer Ramesh Yadav in which Prem is doing the lead role.
'Anumanaspadam' is a let down (REVIEW)
Film: "Anumanaspadam" Cast: Aryan Rajesh, Hansa
Nandini, Vanita, Jayaprakash Reddy, Bharani, Subhash, and Devi Charan; Director: Krishna
Vamsi; Music: Ilayaraja; Producers:
Satish and Jai.
The ghost of Tamil Nadu's slain forest brigand Veerappan haunts
ace Telugu director Krishna Vamsi's latest release "Anumanaspadam".
The film belies big expectations because of its dreary
screenplay and outdated comedy. Vamsi, who regaled audiences
over 15 years ago with murder mystery "Anveshana",
fails to recreate the same magic. Up-and-coming Aryan Rajesh
plays a reporter who plans to unearth the fortune of dead
Veerappan. His character has negative shades. Hansa Nandini
plays a money-minded girl and she agrees to pretend to be in
'love' with Rajesh for the sake of a fortune.
Vijay's Pokiri released for Pongal is a commericial hit, Ajith's
Aalwar is running second to Pokiri. The Dhanush-starrer "Thiruvilayadal
Aarambham", a laugh riot, is ideed going great guns.
The top five Tamil films are:
1."Pokiri" - Director: Prabhu Deva. Telugu film
"Pokiri", starring Mahesh Babu, was the biggest hit of 2006
in Andhra Pradesh. Though the Tamil remake is doing good business at
the box office, it seems the film may not repeat the success story of
2."Aalwar" - Director: Chella. After the stupendous
success of "Varalaaru", people expected another 'super' film
from Ajith. Instead they got a disaster called "Aalwar". The
film is a huge disappointment for everyone, including his fans.
3."Thiruvilaiyadal Aarambham" - Director: Bhoopathy
Pandian. This is turning out to be a big hit for Dhanush, a kind of
rebirth for the actor. The film depicts the lighter side of the actor.
4."Thamirabharani" - Director: Hari: Actor Vishal is
in yet another film that looks like "Thimiru" and "Sivappathikaram".
Shivrajkumar's Thayiya Madilu :
Kannada cinema actor Shivrajkumar's new film is Thayiya Madilu.
Rakshitha plays the heroine role, Jayasudha, Avinash are also in the
star cast. Thayiya Madilu film is directed and produced by S.Narayan.

Pavan Kalyan : Pavan Kalyan
stars in Telugu remake of 'Thirupachi' . After "Bangaram",
Pavan Kalyan fans are eagerly waiting for "Annavaram", a
Telugu remake of the Tamil superhit "Thirupachi". The film
is expected to hit the marquee Dec 29. "It will be a feast for
Pavan fans," says producer R.B. Choudury, a remake specialist who
bounced back with smashing hit "Andala Ramudu". "Annavaram"
is Pavan's first film to have a rural backdrop. Asin, who returns to
the Telugu screen after a series of successful Tamil films, plays the
female lead. Beemaneni Srinivasa Rao, directs "Annavaram",
being touted as the costliest project undertaken by the Mega Supergood
Films so far.The biggest hits of Pavan, younger brother of
Chiranjeevi, were "Susvagatham" and "Kushi", both
of which were remakes of Tamil Vijay-starrers. The cast and crew of
"Annavaram" are hoping that history will repeat itself.
Sandhya plays the sister role to Pavan in Annavaram Telugu movie
actress Padmapriya : I gel well with mature actors: Padmapriya
Thiruvananthapuram, Darling of the Malayalam filmgoers, Padmapriya,
Sunday said she gels well with mature actors like Mammootty and
Mohanlal. "I feel they are more mature and it is the directors
who decide the cast when it comes to a film and I have no problem
acting with superstars," said Padmapriya while interacting with
reporters here, after her latest Malayalam film "Yes Your Honour"
was screened. Padmapriya, in her early twenties, has played the lead
opposite to ageing superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal, who are more

in alien territory: Indrajith (INTERVIEW) : Bangalore, "I am
making a fashion statement," says director-journalist Indrajith
Lankesh about his clean-shaven head, which has become his
trademark.Lankesh indeed looks more like a fashion guru than a serious
and committed filmmaker or a media person. He dresses well, is highly
media-savvy and flouts his big connections with much pride.Recently,

ambassadors Deepika Padukone and Daisy Bopanna and superstar Upendra,

starring Deepika and Upendra."Someone asked me what made
me organise a Kannada movie promotion function in the cantonment area,
not known for functions relating to anything Kannada. I replied that I
wanted to market and promote my product in an alien territory,"
Indrajith told "These clubs are frequented by Kannadigas
and non-Kannadigas, but none of them would see a Kannada film. You may
even wonder whether it is part of Karnataka.
shines in 'Bommarillu' Review
Film: "Bommarillu"; Cast: Siddharth, Genelia, Prakash Raj,
Jayasudha, Satya Krishna and Sunil; Direction: Bhaskar; Music: Devisri

Siddharth bounces back with a feel-good entertainer "Bommarillu".

rebelling against a possessive father. Siddharth's final confrontation
with his lovable but smothering father is his best scene so far.

girl. She excels in scenes where her character tries to work out
friendly equations with the members of her would-be husband's family.

thespian Rajkumar in the city at a cost of Rs.100 million, official
sources said here Tuesday. To be located in the 20-acre sprawling

contribution to the Kannada film industry over the last five decades.

other memorabilia associated with the actor who passed away here
Wednesday. "We plan to build the memorial in the next six months.
A committee is being set up with representatives from the Kannada film
industry, Rajkumar's family members and officials to draw up a
blueprint for the memorial," Keeping in view Rajkumar's long
association with the studio, set up by the state government way back
in 1966, the actor's family will be requested to gift his awards,
trophies and souvenirs to the studio for public display in the
memorial building. "Though the Kannada film industry no longer
uses the studio's outdated facilities, it continues to be a landmark
for the historical role it played over the decades for the growth and
development of Kannada cinema," the official said.

crisp presentation have made the film cross the 50-day mark in 204

veteran Mohan Babu's comeback plans could go awry due to a heavy dose
of comedy that is supposed to be political satire.

poor narration could go against the message-centric film.
5. "Mogudu Pellam O Dongodu": Director Venky's unique

a big winner.

ANGRY ON MISSING HOLI SCENE
Amitabh Bachchan is associated with the tinsel world's Holi festival
more than any other artiste. Recently, he got too annoyed to miss Holi
scene in his forthcoming 'Waqt-The Race Against Time' produced by
Vipul Doshi. He regretted this profusely, and reminded the producer
that the movies with his Holi songs sold better in the market.
Incidentally, the movie has Big B, Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra in
the cast, while the Holi song has been picturized on Akshay and
Priyanka only. Though the movie is due for release in April, a special
show was organized for the cast in a Mumbai mini theatre that was
attended by Amitabh, his wife and son Abhishek, among others.
While everyone praised the movie, Big B complained to the producer
that he has been missing in the Holi song. Amitabh was remembering his
days when he was picturized-playing Holi with Rekha in 'Silsila', with
Jaya Bhaduri in 'Sholay' and with Hema Malini in the recent 'Bagbaan'.
Big B is proud of his Holi song, which is repeated with great fanfare
at social functions even now. However, he forgets that despite his
Holi song, 'Silsila' fell flat at the box office! The song remains a
Cinema News :
"Akash": The Kannada film has collected around Rs.3 million
in two weeks in the Mysore distribution area and nearly Rs.7 million
in Bangalore. The Puneet-Ramya pair is the film's major attraction.
Its massive success has proved once again producer Parvathamma Raj
Kumar's Midas touch.
2) "Varsha": While "Akash" had an awesome opening,
Vishnuvardhan's Kannada cinema "Varsha", released a week
earlier, is slowly becoming a silent super-hit. Female audiences are
backing the film in a big way. The film, produced by Rockline
Venkatesh and directed by S. Narayan, is a remake of the Malayalam hit
3) "Gunna": Only two Kannada films are doing well this
summer, while all the others are just proving to be duds and mediocre.
"Gunna", released last week, is one more mediocre film but
has been able to attract some audience in the opening mainly because
Sudeep has a guest role.
4) "Rakshasa": The film will not be able to recover its huge
costs, but is still doing well in a few city centres. The film's
scenes of excessive violence have put off female audiences.
5) "Kashi": The Sudeep-starrer is just an average film at
the box office, and the distributors may just be able to recover their
costs. But the producer, who has sold the film at a rate below the
production cost, is bound to lose. The film's B and C collections are

unit - Meet the press
In a pressmeet that was held today morning at Prasanth Kutir, unit of
Chakram spoke to the media. Prabhas, Krishnamraju, Krishnavamsi,
producers Sivaraju, Venkatraju, music director Chakri, Nizam
distributor Sunil and others attended this event. Prabhu, editor of
Cinestar Magazine, initiated the pressmeet by saying that Chakram is
gathering good response. He appreciated the way Krishnavamsi moulded
the film and also the guts of Prabhas for doing such a film though he
has an action hero image. Krishnamraju spoke on this occassion. He had
some interesting things to say about the film -"I saw this film
only yesterday. This is one of those films in the recent times that
will influence you a lot. Krishnavamsi did an amazing job with the
film. Infact, if Krishnavamsi ever came to me with the script, I
wouldnot dare making this film. Reason is that the film deals with lot
of preaching and I would be skeptical about people receiving it well.
But Krishnavamsi brought all this out in a very touching manner. I
heard that people are feeling bad about Prabhas's character getting
killed in the end. But I feel that this character will stand
evergreen. Coming to that, most of the actors prefer doing these kind
of films at a later stage in the career. But Prabhas took the guts and
did this one. I should say, he lived in this one. Also, Jagamanta
Kutumbam song by Sastry garu is a great lyric. Chakri did a great job
with composition. ". Krishnamraju also emphasized that it reminds
him of his times when he came to know that there is a special show of
Chakram for only women at Guntur. Chakri started out by saying that
there is nothing much to say since Krishnamraju said everything that
he wanted to say. But he added his impressions about Krishnavamsi.
"When I signed up the film, everyone warned me that it would be a
torture with Krishnavamsi. So initially I was scared a bit. But it is
surprising that he okayed my tunes in the first go. I was worried if
he really liked them. Jagamanta Kutumbam, Konchem Karamga, Oke Oka
mata, songs came out good. They had good lyrics too. Lot of folks are
telling me that Jagamanta Kutumbam will definitely get an award. The
recognition that the song got is extraordinary.".When it was the
turn of Prabhas, he said that he is very much satisified with the
role. He also added that - "Initially some people thought that I
might not be a good fit for the film. But after the release, they are
appreciating me. The credit goes to Krishnavamsi. It is the talent of
Krishnavamsi that he was able to mould me into the role. My favorite
scene from the film is when Charmi realizes the truth and also the
scene where I had to tell Prakashraj about the truth.". Prabhas
comes up with his logic on the hero dying in the film. "A hero
dies in a film doesnot mean that it wont work at the boxoffice. My
uncle did Amaradeepam which is a silverjubilee film at the boxoffice".
Finally, the director Krishnavamsi added his few words- "This
film is based on a song that Sirivennela penned a while ago. But if
not for Prabhas, I wouldnot have made the film at this time. He has
got good flexibility as an actor. I am so impressed with him in most
of the scenes. I would say that he is a born actor.". He also
praised Prabhas on his dedication. Talking about a risky shot,
Krishnavamsi added that "When we were filming a chase scene, a
jeep coming so fast should skid and come to Prabhas who is standing
there. However, the jeep skid and hit Prabhas very hard. The entire
unit was worried but he immediately got up and got ready for the next
shot." Also, the director was all in praise for the music
director for composing such good music. Related LinksPressmeet Gallery
defends Meera's smooch scene in 'NAZAR' :
the occasion of launching the India Pakistan peace march, the famous
filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt reached Delhi. Incidentally, he also shares a
lot of controversy about Pakistani actress 'Meera'and his latest film
'Nazar', showing a kissing scene involving Meera. This has created an
adverse situation in Pakistan, resulting in seeking a ban on Pakistani
actors working in India. Meera has also sought protection from
Pakistani government against such elements. However, Bhatt doesn't
consider this issue as critical. "It's a routine gossip in the
film industry. Unfortunately, this matter relates to a Pakistani
actress for her smooch scenes in my latest movie 'Nazar'." He
adds that the Indian film industry is growing very fast. And Indian
movies are very popular abroad. He wondered why people behave like
this. "We show only that the viewers want to see." Answering
a question if such a type of film should be banned, he said that his
last film 'Murder' had its golden jubilee. All scenes in a film depend
