Expectations and Assumptions on Pawan Kalyan's Panjaa

With over fifteen years (15 Movies) of experience in the film industry, “Power Star” Pawan Kalyan is now arriving with his Panjaa (with minimal promotional activities from its makers) bringing huge expectations with in the movie lovers (especially in megafans). 

I have my own set of assumptions and expectations on the outcome and collections of this movie! Just for comparison, let us choose the recent blockbuster of the industry “Mahesh Babu’s - Dookudu” - it has many similarities with Pawan Kalyan’s Panjaa. Both the celebrities have 16 Movies each in their kitty who were waiting to break all the existing box-office records from a long time. Though Mahesh with his last movie Khaleja (in combination with Jalsa Director – Trivikram) failed to achieve this target, has never failed to miss it with his 16th movie – Dookudu. While Timing, Teamwork and Subject are the key elements of the success – Mahesh’s factor equals all these factors which helped the movie to become super success. 

Same is the case with Panjaa (Pawan Kalyan who failed to break the records with his last two movies - Puli and TeenMaar) is pretty confident this time. With excellent teamwork, timing and subject coupled with Pawan’s presence in his 16th Movie should prove the power star’s star power once again in a much bigger way! Not only the number game, it’s the peak level of his career and is also the crucial and must win situation for the star to prove his mettle in the industry (for which Pawan Kalyan did everything that he has to do). The movie has all the commercial aspects (specifically, Pawan mark – fights, comedy and dialogues) and is hitting maximum number of screens (as many as 1800) on the 9th of December 2011, having advance bookings already opened in few centers. 

As always (for Pawan Kalyan's Movie) before its release only, almost 50% of the tickets will be sold for the first three days and would collect nothing less than 20+ Crores, the movie has already made a business of around 50 Crores (through distribution, satellite and music rights) is all set to recreate the history by creating sensation – first day collections for the movie will not be less than 15 Crores (including advance bookings) and in the long run - by the third weekend it will reach 100+ Crores, and I am damn sure (after watching the making videos and trailers), Panjaa will certainly attract every segment of audience to the theatres for multiple times at least for the first few weeks and by 25th December – the movie collects 100+ Crores (apart from pre-release business, which will be a rare feet in the history of telugu cinema). 

I have mentioned about the collections of the movie, since that is the only factor which can be used for measuring the power of the star in the current generation (at least in the business point of view). By changing his attitude towards a commercial movie, Pawan is now entertaining media to approach him for various interviews. Recently – Pawan also encouraged the makers of Panjaa in making a special interview on him! Just the highlights (less than 3 mins) of this interview got a huge response from the Power Star’s Fans and are now eagerly waiting for the blast! If this is the changed style of Pawan Kalyan, then one can expect the level of his dedication and efforts that he would have put for the movie (as per the demand from audience, unlike in his past movies).

Let’s quickly look at the flash back of Pawan Kalyan's career (in the table below) and my views and ratings for each of his projects and performances in it. For each and every movie of his, he puts lot of efforts and dedication but the only mistake he used to commit (until TeenMaar) was the selection of the subject and his characterization in the movie. But as mentioned above, the changed Pawan has also changed his style of selection of the subjects (as needed for a commercial movie) which will never let him down from now on!
