Genre: Comedy
Director(s): Ram Gopal Varma
Production: Independent Bollywood

Have you come to watch a comedy film?

l've lied to you.

Actually this film is a tragedy.

lf l say tragedy people won't come,

so l lied it is a comedy.

But in reality there isn't much

difference between comedy and tragedy.

One man's tragedy is

another man's comedy,

another man's comedy is

some other man's tragedy,

But Appalraju's story is a struggle

between comedy and tragedy.

But in a struggle, it entertains

people involved in it.

You've come here seeking entertainment.

Expecting this Appalraju's tragic story

would be a comedy to you.

Yours Ramgopal Varma.


World is full of films...

You and me are characters...

God is the director...

Life is a film...

Horoscope is the magician..

God is the writer of this story...

But the title given to it is Fate...

That's why...

One who imagines and writes

a story is known as director...

God has the technique to turn

reality into imagination...

Twists in films is routine...

God is an expert is giving

a twist every second...

One makes a film to weep and

weeps all through his life...

God has the last laugh

making life into a TV soap...

Film is not yet over, right?

Why did you wake me up?

l'm unable to hear the dialogues

in the sound of your snores.

Oh God! ls this a film and

it has dialogues too?

Wastrel - Very good boy!

After watching this film,

immediately l want to go to

Hyderabad with my story,

and make a film!

Forget about seeing a camera,

you haven't yet watched a film shoot too,

how can you make a film?

You've grown body but not brain.

Take for instance if we do cultivation,

do we know about cultivation?

Coolie would do his job.

Broker would sell the grain.

What do we do in between them?

- Just supervising.

Yes, that's what they do.

We're seeing in TV channels,

they sit before TV's in shooting spot,

and give instructions only,

what else are they doing?

l'm asking ignorantly,

without working as an assistant,

are you Ramgopal Varma to direct a film?

Ramgopal Varma? Do you've to

use his name as an example?

Why? Didn't he make a great film 'Shiva'?

l agree 'Shiva' is a great film,.

But did he make it with talent?

- Then...

Making film 'Shiva' by luck...

Have you gone mad?

Denigrating epic film Sholay...

One who talks rubbish...

ls Varma a director?

Watching Hitchcock films...

He made ghost films,

is Ramgopal Varma a film director?


Talent isn't hereditary...

talent isn't private property of few...

Are Shankar and Mani Rathnam great?

Did Vinayak and Vamsi

came down from sky?

Did Raghavendra made any great

film other than milk, fruits, and navel?

l'll strive for social welfare...

l'll drastically change it...

Krishnavamsi made films...

Audience got disgusted

unable to understand...

Puri Jagannadh without knowing

that 'Pokiri' is a fluke hit...

He makes a film 'Deshamuduru',

what to do?

Did he forget his earlier

film 'Andhrawala'?

l've seen Rajamouli's film 'Magadheera'...

l'll make a film upstage it...

What sins have we committed?

B.Gopal blows up

umpteen number of Sumos...

That's Appalraju is coming

to tinsel town...

To give directors a run

for their money...

Boyapati Seenu is like a cat,

does he need to roar like a lion?

What a tragedy!

Srinu Vytla made 'Namo Venkatesha'

but was left with a hole in pocket...

Saying l'll not spare you Bommali, Kodi

made the film 'Arundhati' with Anushka...

Recycled stories of old films and

cheated us with a head bandana...

Sentiments of EVV and SV's films

give you headaches...

Gunasekhar put up large sets, they
