This summer is turning into a good blogging workshop, what with all of the "weeks" and "months" going on. This week, it's Rotikapadarum's Shameful Classics/Pleasures Week (2nd Annual Edition), which could not have come at a more fortuitous time, since I just got an order of DVD purchases and rentals featuring my shameful pleasure: the films of Telugu actor Sumanth.
Maybe it's the ridiculous outfits that make me happy:
Or that he often shares scenes with gym equipment:
Or it might be the...enthusiastic dancing:
("Mila Mila" from Chinnodu)
("Chalre Chalre" from Pourudu)
I was inordinately pleased earlier this week to learn that there is a Telugu remake of the Malayalam hit Classmates, starring Sumanth!
The one oddity about Sumanth's filmography is that Prakash Raj doesn't seem to have been in any of his films, which is pretty unusual, considering the ubiquity of Prakash Raj in Telugu films. (And perhaps this is why I feel slightly shameful about watching films that don't advance my blogging goal...hmmm.)
