An interesting battle has begun in Tollywood with regard to titles. Everyone is battling over titles it seems these days. The war of titles has started with Khaleja which later became Mahesh Khaleja. And the war is continuing with “Kathi.”
There are two films titled as “Kathi.” One is the film with Ravi Teja as the hero in the direction of Gunashekar whereas the other one is the film which has Kalyan Ram in the lead. The latter film has been titled as “Kalyan Ram Kathi” in the lines of Mahesh Khaleja. It is another matter that Gunashekar is objecting to the latest renaming of Kalyan Ram’s flick and is forcing the Film Chamber to do something about this growing trend of battle over the titles.
Incidentally enough, a few years back, in Bollywood, there were three films being made on the life of Bhagat Singh. Ajay Devgn was the hero in “The Legend of Bhagat Singh” whereas Bobby was Bhagat Singh in Sunny Deol’s “Shaheed:1931” and little known actors too became Bhagat Singh which did not get much attention. But finally, “The Legend Of Bhagat Singh” was declared the winner as it had an engaging script.
One hopes that the two “kathi”s coming in Tollywood to have such strengths so as to be the winners.
