Kondeti arranged a special preview show of his
hit film Premiste for the journalists at Prasad Labs
on the night of 10th November. Journalists shared
their feelings about Premiste film. Here are the excerpts
of the opinions expressed by various journalists -
journalist Pasupuleti Rama Rao said that he
has seen such a wonderful love story in form of Premiste
after watching K Bala Chandar's Maro Charitra decades
(editor of Cine Star film weekly) said, "Premiste
is an impact making film. The climax is heart-touching
and taking is realistic. There is lot of emotion and
feel in Premiste. Suresh Kondeti knows how to promote
Goteti (editor of Sitara film weekly) said, "Premiste
stands as the best example of a novel flick. It is
a director's film all the way. Heroine Sandhya did
exceptionally good job. The character of Aiswarya
haunted me for days after I watched the film."
Raju (editor of Superhit film weekly) said, "Premiste
is one of the best love stories ever made on celluloid.
By producing film like this Suresh Kondeti is making
all journalists proud."
and present lyricist Bhaskarabhatla said, "I
have already seen Premiste twice. There is much of
realism in this film. I experienced similar events
in my life as I married a girl through registered
marriage and I know the practical difficulties. I
have known Suresh Kondeti for 12 years and he made
a great decision of dubbing this film."
Raghava said, "All great love stories are
tragedies. But in this film these is sweetness as
well as tragedy in the climax. Suresh Kondeti is good
at marketing his products. Premiste is a healthy love
story in this globalized world where love happens
over cell phones and internet."
Raghava said, "I worked for Santosham film
magazine for a few months. The feel in this film is
so good that it overcame the nativity problems by
attracting everybody. Great screenplay is the major
contributor for the success of this film."
Raja said, "Selecting such a nice subject
like Premiste shows the classic taste of producer
Suresh. It is a risky step to dub such a film and
he succeeded in doing it. This film is an ideal film
not only for the youth but also for the parents."
scribe Gudipoodi Srihari said, "Suresh
Kondeti is an ever-smiling and non-controversial person
in film industry. Shankar's craze in AP and the true
story worked in favor of the film. There is a saying
that 'Truth is stranger than fiction'. The secret
of the success of this film is that it told the truth
and reality. Telugu film story writers should not
leave the truth out while writing stories. I saw Premiste
on the 1st day 1st show. The openings were great.
The climax of the film is neither a tragedy nor a
happy one. Most of the producers of Telugu cinema
are trapped in old stories and formula today. I request
the producers to choose novel stories. There are many
journalists who have good exposure in filmmaking.
Watching films, observing shoots and moving around
in film industry gives lot of exposure to the scribes.
The Telugu film industry should use the services of
journalists in making better films. Suresh Kondeti
hit a jackpot with Premiste. I request him to be cautious
while making his next film as doing a straight film
needs lots of exposure in each and every department
journalist Bhushan said that Premiste belongs
to the genre of heart-touching classics like Vasantha
Kokila and Matru Devobhava.
journalist Sai Ramesh, TV artist Chalapati Raju, playback
singer Ramana, DG Bhavani, Narayana Rao, C Ramesh
also spoke during this occasion.
replying to the responses of the journalists, Suresh
Kondeti said that he want to remain as journalist
though he is entering new avenues. Premiste film was
released with 42 prints and now the prints number
is reached to 100. He thanked everybody for making
Premiste a big success.
