Aside from the overuse of dictatorial names...

...I'm trying to decide whether or not to see Stalin, a Telegu film by A. R. Murugadoss at the Belcourt next weekend. It was supposed to be a big deal--according to reviewers on imdb.com--the same way that KANK was and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Anybody seen the film? Are there any hotties in it that will warrant me sitting through multiple action scenes?

Avoid it. If you get a chance watch BOSS, another telugu film starring Nagarjuna. I would also recommend Bommarillu

Avoid?! But you didn't say why! Now the film lies in shrouded in even more mystery...

I personally didn't like it, but some of my friends did like it. one might enjoy the humour and dances... Chiranjeevi is a graceful dancer even though he is quite old.

Reasons for me not liking Stalin:
- Some of the scenes are illogical and over the top
- This film has nothing new to offer compared to his previous ones(Chiranjeevi acted in 143 films and I've watched almost all of them).
- I expected a better film from A. R. Murugadoss, this is his weakest script.

In south India Stalin is viewed as a revolutionary leader, not as a dictator or a despot. Communist parties are quite strong in south, so there are loads of people with names such as Lenin, Stalin...
I suppose our world view is different from Westerners.

I'd like to know how I can get access to south Indian movies. I have access to Hindi films which I enjoy, but I am tired of seeing remakes of films from southern India in Hindi. I'd like to see the originals. Where can I find them on-line? Please, no pirated (bootleg)versions of these movies.
