Movie review: Sudigadu is a laugh riot -NDTV Review

Movie review: Sudigadu is a laugh riot

Bhimaneni Srinivasa's Telugu film Sudigadu is a laugh riot that keeps
the audience entertained right up till the end. The movie has given
viewers a good watch for the weekend.

The comedy revolves around Kamesh (played by Allari Naresh) and his
wife (played by Hema) who become the proud parents of a baby. The
twist is that the infant is born with a six pack body and has a sworn
enemy, Thikkal Reddy (played by Jayaprakash Reddy), who keeps
conniving to harm him. Kamesh then sends him off to city where he
grows into dynamic Shiva played again by Allari Naresh - the first
double role of his career.

Shiva grows up to play all sorts of histrionics like making bullets
stop and challenging time. The romantic angle is provided by Monal
Gajjar who plays his love interest in the movie.

Allari Naresh performance is remarkable both as Kamesh and Shiva. His
witty comic dialogues have a great impact on viewers. On the whole I
can say he kept the film going throughout. Heroine Monal Gajjar
opposite him is ok. The strength of the film lies in brilliantly
conceived spoofs on the biggest hits of the industry. The spoofs are
done without malice in a good natured manner. The one on TV anchor
Omkar has the audience rolling with laughter.

The other actors whose performance contributes to the success of the
movie are Jayaprakash Reddy, Sayaji Shinde, Krishna Bhagawan and MS
Narayana. Hema and Kovai Sarala are average in their roles. Fish
Venkat and Raghu Babu too entertain briefly. But Kondavalasa and
Sriram look out of place in their characters.

The climax does seem to let down the viewer a bit. As far as the songs
go, none are particularly entertaining. Camerawork and dialogues
deserve special mention. They have been written in a very humorous

On the whole, Sudigadu makes for a good watch this weekend. Don't miss it.

Under-19 World Cup: India storm into semi-final with thrilling win over Pakistan

India beat Pakistan by one wicket in a tense quarter-final match to
reach the semi-final of the Under-19 World Cup on Monday.

Chasing 137 to win, India were cruising along despite losing three
quick wickets early on. Everything was under control till Aparajith
got out on 51. India were 120/6 when he got out. They needed just 17
more to win.

After Aparajith's wicket India lost 3 quick wickets. At one point of
time they needed 10 runs with just 1 wicket remaining.

But the last wicket pair of Harmeet Singh and Sandeep Sharma clinched
the match in their favour.

Earlier, India had a horrible start to the chase as they lost three
wickets in the first 5 overs with just 8 runs on the board.

Bulk of rumours were sourced from Pakistan: Centre

Bulk of the rumours that triggered panic among people of northeastern states in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra were sourced from Pakistan, Union Home secretary RK Singh said on Saturday.

 "A total of 76 websites were identified where morphed images were uploaded and bulk of these were uploaded in Pakistan," Singh said.

"We believe it is highly reprehensible. I think it needs to be made known to everybody that this is something that is being done from Pakistan. The bulk of it has been done from Pakistan," he said.

He said all these websites have since been blocked. As a step towards rumours being spread, Government has imposed a 15-day ban on bulk SMSes and MMSes.

Singh said bodies of victims of cyclones and earthquakes in different part of the world were shown as victims of violence in Myanmar in the morphed images.

Apart from these websites, 34 more have been identified and Government was in the process of blocking them soon, he said.

Driven by rumours, over 30,000 northeast people have left Bangalore fearing attacks on them while many of them have fled Chennai and Pune in the last three days, notwithstanding assurances from the Centre and the state governments. 

Bangalore police arrests 16 people

Meanwhile, Bangalore police on Saturday arrested three more persons in connection with spreading hatred against the people of North East.

With this the total number of people arrested in the city in cases of intimidation and rumour mongering against the North East people, has gone up to 16.

Situation in the Karnataka capital is normal with the very few people leaving for Assam in last 24 hours.

Current News :China’s Wen Xia Yu was crowned the Miss World 2012

China's Wen Xia Yu was crowned the Miss World 2012 at a gala ceremony here Saturday.

Wales' Sophie Moulds was adjudged the first runner-up, while Australia's Jessica Kahawaty was the second runner-up.

India's Vanya Mishra made it to the top seven spot but failed to progress further. She, however, did bag the titles of Miss Social Media and Miss Beauty with a Purpose.

In the semi-finals, the contestants were asked to perform on the music of their country and Vanya chose to dance on "Dil cheez kya hai" from 1981 film "Umrao Jaan", which landed her a spot in the top seven finalists.

Last year's winner, Venezuela's Ivian Sarcos, crowned Wen as the new Miss World at the glittering ceremony held in Dongsheng Fitness Center Stadium here.

The competition saw 116 countries competing for the title.
