Bus Stop Takes the Advantage:
Producer Bellamkonda Suresh is set to cash on the golden opportunity of Diwali festival by releasing his medium budget movie Bus Stop on 11th November and meanwhile, the film will be screened in the multiplexes from today itself on 10th November for the evening shows.
Since many theaters have been allocated for Damarukam and the film being postponed has made the makers go for a big release. Maruthi directed Bus Stop has Prince and Sri Vidya in the lead roles. The film has been made under the banner of Sri Sai Ganesh Productions banner with musical scores by JB and cinematography by Prabhakar ReddyWith no big releases other than dubbed film Tupaki, Bus Stop is expected to do well at the Box-Office.
Director Dasari Maruthi’s youthful family entertainer ‘Bus Stop’ has cleared the censor formalities yesterday and has obtained ‘A’ certificate by the authorities. Reportedly, no visual cuts has been made and only 4 dialogue cuts are being suggested by the reviewing committee members to the makers of the movie. Earlier, ‘Bus Stop’ movie has faced few issues from the censor board chief Dhana Lakshmi, and hence, they have approached Reviewing Committee(RC) for the censor scrutiny. ‘Bus Stop’ has Prince, Khanna, Sri Divya, Rakshitha playing the lead roles. A press meet on the release date of ‘Bus Stop’ is expected to be held today afternoon and our trusted sources hint that the makers are planning to release the movie on November 10
Bus Stop falls in the class of youth attracting movies like Oka romantic crime story, Eerojullo and others. Bus Stop movie depicts the confusion in parent-child relationship and how love spoils today’s youth. Bus Stop movie mainly focuses on the negative side of love, how it makes the youth cheat on their parents and themselves.
Director had used the same lead pair of Neeku Naku Dash Dash, Prince and Divya in the movie. They had shown good improvement from their previous movie. They seem to know each other well and the chemistry between them worked big time. Rao Ramesh was at his usual best. Rakshitha, Sai Kumar, Kanna, FM Babai and others managed decent performance too.
The director suffers from creative scarcity and in the name of youthfull movies, he makes a movies with vulgarity and double meaning dialogues. Whatever he delivered, he had made justice to his part technically in terms of executing and narrating the story. The move taken my censor team to refer Bus Stop movie to reviewing committee members is clearly justified.
Cinematography by J.Prabhakar Reddy is very nice.
Rerecording by JB elevates the movie and the music is good.
Art work is OK.
Editing by SB Uddhav is good.
Like his previous movie, Ee Rojullo, director Maruthi uses the crudest form of double meanings and dirty jokes to make his movie connect with masses and youth who may identify themselves. Director relied on the double meanings and vulgarity every where in the movie and amidst every character even if it is between father and son. The Censor board had shown a matured approach by scissoring the movie and rating it A. The movie will be enjoyed by people who enjoys ‘this kind’ of movies. Families and ladies will have to cover their faces in shame while watching it.
Position at Box Office:
The postponement of Damarukam came in a disguise for this movie. And now with no movie round the corner. The movie will pay well commercially if the targeted audience connect to it.
