A new short interview with Sridevi has been added to the interviews section talking abou her role in Puli, Vijay & Ajay. Read it as it has some very interesting things. HERE
Puli's trailer has got so much love and appreciation from fans and critics. Sridevi showed her magic, the CGI are truly amazing and they are trendsetting. Expect more fantasy films to be made on this scale. As of today the trailer has surpassed 1.6 million views and over 50K likes on Youtube!
Puli is getting a nationwide release with the film being released in all different languages. We can confirm that Sridevi has dubbed her own voice for Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions. The expectations are sky high from this film.
There is a good news guys, producer and the current censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani is said to have been extremely satisfied with Puli’s output and has straightaway purchased the Hindi dubbing rights of the film! This will ensure that Puli should enjoy a commendable number of screens up North too, and this might add up a decent sum to the total gross collections.
Another massive milestone for Puli. The film's trailer has become the most liked Indian trailer of all time. As of today the trailer has more than 6.2 million views and over 105K like on Youtube. All this indicates that Puli is gearing up for a grand release. Lets roarrrr together.
The Queen tweets requesting us to watch Puli. We will, we will. We have been waiting eagerly for this.
Sridevi is all set to rule your hearts and reign in your territory in October 1st, the official release day of Puli. There will be a clash with Akshay Kumar's Singh is Bling. We wish both the films a great success. History might repeat itself again when in 2012 English Vinglish was released a week after Akshay's Oh My God! Both films succeeded critically and commercially.
The new posters released for Puli are incredible. Sridevi shines in them. Once a long time ago we have expressed our desires to see Sridevi in a fantasy film where she plays a negative role like a witch or something similar and we can completely see that she has made our wish come true with Puli by playing this evil Queen! Just look how the devi rules in these posters.
Nivedita Mishra is a writer from Hindustan Times. She wrote her feedback on Puli's teaser and then again on the trailer released few days ago. We don't have anything personal against the writer but we thought to write our reply to what she has written. The post will be a part from the article and our reply to that particular part.
First thing the writer knows the word fantasy but looks like she is mixing between fantasy and historical. That is the First Mistake. Fantasy is completely different than historical. Definition of fantasy is imagination especially when extravagant and unrestrained.
And how does Fantasy genre in films defined? it is something that contains rudiments that are not realistic, such as magical powers, talking animals, etc. Fantasy is often characterized by a departure from the accepted rules by which individuals perceive the world around them; it represents that which is impossible (unexplained) and outside the parameters of our known, reality. Make-believe is what this genre is all about. A fantasy has no language, land or look.
Second Mistake: The writer maybe have not watched enough movies. Nivedita ji haven't you seen Hollywood produced films like Aladdin or Sinbad? These and many other films were loved by audience and critics & we have not seen Hollywood critics say that Sinbad was not white or blue eyed! they did not say that western people should not wear these clothes! Why? because their critics know the meaning of the word fantasy and you don't. See the below picture. This is Sinbad! White with blue eyes!
Why go to Hollywood. Have you seen Bollywood films? Haven't you seen films like Alibaba Aur 40 Chor? Ajooba or even Dharmendra's Superman? Do you think Indians should not make movies that has a bit of Persian/Arab culture or Western look? A fantasy film has no land, no language. A fantasy film can happen anywhere. Puli is no different here.
Third Mistake: Writer has assumed that Puli is taking place in India! This is not true, Puli is not taking place in India simply because it is a fantasy film. Just because the film is made in India does not necessarily mean it takes place there. Names, places and everything about the movie is completely fictional. That is what a fantasy is about.
Fourth Mistake: The writer keeps repeating herself again and again. Her problem is that the look of the film is western and the film is an Indian one! Did you see films like Vikram Bhatt's 1920? Did India look like that or Indian wear like that in the 1920s? Did you watch Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish? Where was the setting of the film? Do Indians wear like that? bearing in mind that both these films were not even fantasies! One was a horror film and the other was more a romantic drama.
Fifth Mistake: Why does Puli have to be Baahubali? These are two different films with two different genres! How can you compare the two? Other than both being made with high budget and with lots of CGI use there is no other similarity! Actually we are glad that Puli is so different. Kudos to the makers for making it very different. The writer wants every movie to look the same to her own taste, That is not going to happen.
For all the above the writer gets a thumb down from us and Hindustan Times also gets another thumb down for posting this article not once but twice.
Our advise to the respected writer Nivedita Mishra is to grab a dictionary and learn the correct meaning of the word Fantasy!

It was all stars and glittery for Superstar Chiranjeevi's 60th birthday on the 22nd of August. Of course Sridevi had to be there too to wish Chiruji a happy birthday. After all they paired together in some of the biggest blockbusters of Telugu cinema. Sridevi attended the party with her husband Boney Kapoor. She appeared in a mint glittery sari by Manish Malhotra and finished her look with diamonds and a matching clutch. She was the Chandni of the night. Truly beautiful and elegant.
