Off late I have seen two instances where the talent has been rewarded its worth and respect, which is deserving enough. One is the Telugu Cinema Nandi Awards 2008 ( say it Oscar of Tollywood) and the other is Dhee -2 a reality( seriously its mostly real unlike the other fake reality shows) dance show for upcoming coreographers to prove their mettle.
Telugu Cinema Nandi Awards 2008 under the jury headed by Thamma Reddy Bharadwaj
( famous producer ) has done it apropos this time. They have even abandoned giving away awards in five categories which is a clear indication on how the movie making these days is turning out to be with all the junk filled with almost no value to anyone. On the other hand they have encouraged the movies that are really worth deserving I feel so like Gamyam grabbing awards in three categories which reinforces that a good story with solid narration is nevertheless a winner, both in the audience and the awards. Allari Naresh won supporting actor, while Krish ( director ) won the best director for the movie Gamyam and Seetharamashastri won one for the brilliantly composed song Enthavaraku ani adakku for his beautiful lyrics. The other biggie this time worth mentioning is a technical extravaganza Arundathi for all its glitz both onscreen and offscreen contributed by actors and techincians respectively. It bagged a total of 9 awards and a jury award for the spell bound performance by the Bommali Anushka which speaks of it all and Kudos to the movie makers like Shyam Prasad Reddy who always dared to do it big when he does unlike throwing away the junk every now and then. This time 7 technicians for the same film Arundathi deserved it and very rightly these awards is a pat on their shoulders saying go boy go give us some entertaining stuff like this again. Thanks to the awards for being given for what they are rather than who they are [ you got me what I mean by this right 🙂 ]
In the reality-flu stricken telugu tv channels, hardly a show airing on telivision is really real. But amidst all these having the Indian dance demi-god Prabhu deva as the inspiration behind the Dhee-2 a dance show for upcoming choreographers to prove their mettle.Its the one among those fake reality shows with almost no frills attached it and entertains with some genuine dance movements and less bak bak of judges and at last something real. This is a show from Mallemala Tele Entertainers of aforesaid daring producer Shyam Prasad Reddy. The two winners of the show won each a Villa worth whopping 35 Lakhs and also a chance to compose dance for the upcoming movie of NTR and Vinayak. Now thats a real appreciation for what they are rather than who they are.Thanks to the people like Shyam Prasad Reddy who is out there encouraging the real talent. My hearty whishes for all those winners and dreamers of making a mark in the industry of cinema. Its always good to get what they deserve , isn’t it ? We need more of this and lets hope this continues forever..
