According to grapvine, Sai Dharam Tej’s maiden movie Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham is said to be safe bet as the film is loosely based on actor Ram’s Maska. The much-hyped first release of megastar’s kin Sai Dharam Tej is reportedly “revamped” and “rehashed” version of action drama released in 2009. Rumour mill is abuzz that producer Allu Arvind insited a lot of changes in the main plot in order to give it a new look and fresh feel to the audiences.
While Maska has two heroines and revolves around the hero-villain conflict where two heroines happen to be daughters of villain, the makers of PNLJ said to have cut short it to one heroine- Regina Cassandra and the slightly tweaked film’s premise but retained the flavour of the film. We hear that the second half deals with humour and director AS Ravi Kumar Chowdary, producers Bunny Vasu banked on comedy to keep out of the original flair which has mass shades.
“PNLJ is loosely based on actor’s Ram “Maska’ but produer Allu Arvind insisted lot of changes,” revealed a source in the know. While Maska had an average run, it needs to be seen whether PNLJ works or bombs at Box Office. How many changes director Ravikumar Choudary made to make it a money-spinner, we’ll get to know. At times, films with familiar themes have worked at the box office, so Sai can feel safe for now.
