Being a fan of Southern cinema, I am always on a lookout for anything that is even distantly related to the industry that churns out films in record numbers. However, it often gets difficult as the news about Tollywood is often scattered. So, I usually ended up scouring a number of websites and using search engines to find information about latest releases, gossip and trivia about stars. This was before I came across the website, http://www.andhrareporter.com
So, let’s not make this work a promotional one and underline what all I have learnt about the website by going through it every day for two whole weeks.
About the website
Andhrareporter is a news and entertainment based website that primarily focuses on Tollywood cinema, national and international news. Along with that, it brings a number of other attractions to make sure visitors stay after reaching the website. Following points would roughly segregate the website in easily noticeable areas.
News would be probably the very first element that you would notice on the homepage. Under the latest news section, national news, Telangana News that occupies the minds of Indian masses is screened while just below it, everything that has to do with films is present. In the news section, special attention is given to Andhra political news. In the same way, in the movie news section, one can find everything that is keeping the Tollywood stars busy. One glance through the news section, and there is no chance you would remain oblivious of any major happening.
This point is the reason why the website is frequented by Telugu film lovers. It keeps an eye on everything that hits the cinema screens of the southern film industry and informs its visitors about their prospects. Through its unbiased cinema reviews, it helps movie goers in making opinion about cinema works. Information about actors, music, director, storyline and other details are also available to help visitors. However, what really makes its reviews section stand apart is the availability of critics as well as user reviews. Perhaps, that is why it is stated as the best Telugu movies website by its users.
Gosssip and Trivia
As far as my opinion goes, there is nothing that interests a cinema fan than gossip and trivia about celebrities. Stars have exciting lives; they fly around the world, attend high profile functions and do everything that is hot and happening. Andhrareporter- as far as I have reviewed it- brings all type of gossip from every nook and corner of Tollywood. It informs you about all the upcoming works, what is happening behind the curtain, what is spoken in whispers and of course what is spoken rather openly. And yes, it also brings Telugu cinema trailers of latest works about to reach theatres.
The word of caution is that go in the video section only when you have time on your side. This is because it is so extensive that you will need plenty of time to go through different sections and categories. Cooking, tech, funny, short films, trailers, fashion, music videos, behind the scenes and Hindi films are some of the categories that are quite appealing. Like me, those who look for a more visual experience can go through latest Telugu news videos for quick information.
There is something about Telugu actresses that lures men and speaking the truth, the same made me fan of Andhrareporter’s photo galleries. One can find clicks from film sets, stills, photo shoots, award functions and other events. Hence, along with relishing on Southern beauties, one can also come to know what is happening in the inner circles of Tollywood.
If you are thinking this much is all a website can contain, then, perhaps, it is time for a rethink. There are polls, box office details, fan clubs and rich supply of Telugu videos online. Hence, there is a lot to look forward to in the information loaded website.
The website is nothing short of a trip to Tollywood. And if you don’t believe it, well, a visit wouldn’t hurt.
