The Mahesh Babu film Athidhi is similar to his blockbuster movie Pokiri. The first half of the film runs very close to Pokiri. Mahesh Babu’s style, mannerism, the narration, the goons, everything resembles the story from Pokiri.
It is only in the second half that the film has some difference. But on the whole, the film is more or less like Pokiri II and this is the comment one heard from the audience who came out of the theaters after watching the morning show.

Fancy offer for ‘Dhukudu’ satellite rights 2011/2/11 16:47:54 Ever since, the competition for satellite rights of the Telugu films begins in the small screens, proportionately the price tags of the films also shot to sky high. The competition goes to such an extent that, even small and flop films were able to fetch good amounts by selling the satellite rights to racing entertainment channels. But, many of the channels which couldn’t afford or willing to invest such huge amounts on films that were eating up into their profits all of a sudden quit the race. Ultimately, this lead to a sudden down falls of the business and there were no takers for even hit films.
But, the recent launching of Telugu Movie channel ‘MAA movies’ has come as a big help to prince Mahesh babu’s upcoming film ‘Dhukudu.’ Since, this newly launched ‘MAA Movies’ channel has big dreams about its future. So, it has offered a fancy price of Rs.5.75 crores to Mahesh’s ‘Dhukudu’ film for obtaining it’s satellite rights.
Although, none can give a minimum guarantee for the success of a film, this kind of pre- release-business deals, certainly give some breathe to the producers, who gambles with his hard earned money.
