Preethiya Theru Kannada Movie posterFilm: “Preethiya Theru”; Director: Prasad; Cast: Thanil, Madhumitha, Dharma and Sadhu Kokila; Music: Prasad; Rating: *

“Preethiya Theru” is a terrible attempt made by producer Lokesh Reddy to give his son Thanil the big break in the film world.

But Thanil somehow doesn’t show promise of becoming a good film hero. “Preethiya There” turns out to be a below average fare.

Kites (2010) - Hrithik Barbara Gyrations Release Date May 21, 2010

Bárbara Mori

For an Indian Hindi movie that has the tagline "in love there are no boundaries", Kites is indeed honest. Hrithik Roshan, one of the reigning Bollywood film heroes, not only crosses the boundaries of around 40 countries, but also a couple of oceans to boot. He finally finds love in the arms of the sensuous latina actress Barbara Mori, and somehow crosses over the other kind of boundary, that of spoken language, as well. I am not sure if Hrithik says "main tumse pyaar karta hoon" and Barbara Mori says "te quiero!" in Kites - but we will know when it releases. The release date of KITES is May 21, 2010.

Ravan - Raavana (2010) - Ram is right ? Sita to have an affair with Ravan in Mani Ratnam's Epic Hindi - Telugu Movie

Dalpati DVDDalpati DVDMani Ratnam (born 1956) - the acclaimed Indian film maker from south India - has dipped into the great Indian epics and come up with great contemporary stories before. His 1991 Rajnikanth-Mammooty blockbuster Thalapati (Tamil) / Dalpati (Hindi) / The Commander (English) [Buy DVD] had an unmistakable flavor of certain subplots from the Mahabharata.

Famous worldwide in the Bollywood and Indian movie lover community, Mani Ratnam has delivered a string of smart box-office superhits also known for their great cinematographic qualities - ROJA (1992) [DVD], Dil Se (1998) [DVD] and so on. Mani Ratnam has frequently worked with the now suddenly famous A R Rahman in many of his movies. In fact, Roja was one of the movies that put the name Allah Rakha Rahman in media and cinema prominence early on in his career.

It should not, therefore, come as a big surprise that a couple of years ago Mani Ratnam started a film project about adapting sections of the Ramayana into a contemporary movie. The movie was envisioned on a grand scale - to be made in two languages (Hindi and Tamil), with largely different casts, a lot of action, special effects and music, as expected, by A R Rahman, who now is reportedly equated to an Indian version of Mozart.

Mani Ratnam's 2010 epic is titled RAVAN in Hindi and RAAVANA in Tamil.
