Hyderabad(IANS): There are three new songs on the list this fortnight. New entrant "Chiruta" has edged out "Shankar Dada Zindabad" from the top slot. Directed by Puri Jagannath "Chiruta" is one of the most-awaited films of the year as it launches Chiranjeevi's son Ramcharan Teja. Mani Sharma has scored the music for the film.

The top five Telugu songs are:

1. "Yamaho Yama" - Film: "Chiruta". Sung by Tipu, the song tops the charts. A bilingual number, it has a lively, loud, youthful feel.

2. "Noonoogumeesaalodu" - Film: "Yamadonga". A melodious and peppy number that reminds one of an old Telugu song is back on the list. Music director Keeravani has crooned it with Sunita.

3. "Aakelesthe" - Film: "Shankar Dada Zindabad". After remaining on the top position for several weeks, the song has come two notches down this fortnight. Devisri Prasad's music and Mamta Mohandas and Naveen's energetic voices helped it to rock so far.

4. "Raara Raara" - Film: "Vijayadasami". A mass-oriented, foot-tapping number, which opens with "Ganapati Bappa Moriya", is sung with verve by Shankar Mahadevan. Srikanth Deva composed the music for the song, which seems to be a festive number.

5. "Banam" - Film: "Raghavan". Harris Jayaraj ropes in Bombay Jayashri to sing the song with Harish Raghavendra. Harris seems a constant with director Gowtham Menon, the director of "Cheli" and now "Raghavan". The music has a certain melody and the song grows on the listener. The musical orchestration has a classical feel.

Channel banned for fake sex sting on Delhi teacher

Live India TV channel — under fire for its alleged fake sting operation — has been banned for a month. The decision was taken by I&B ministry and comes close on the heels of the strong stance taken by Delhi HC against the channel.

I&B minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi said, “When sting operations are done in pubic interest, exposing cash-for-query scam, Parliament expels the MPs. But when it is done to create sensation, I don’t see why it does not meet the fate of those MPs.”

The ministry took the decision based on a recommendation by the inter-ministerial committee, sources said.

The channel had been issued two show-cause notices for showing a programme based on half-truths, and slandering an individual. It had claimed that teacher Uma Khurana was involved in an organised prostitution racket of school girls.

Spotlight: Ram Charan's 'Chirutha' Story Leaked?

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/chirutha11190267412.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

This is the story that is making rounds in internet through emails as the story of 'Chirutha'. The truth in this is not known but we have to wait and see if it coincides with the original.

"Durga (Jagapathi Babu) is a big factionist in Hyderabad. He has a sister (Neha) whom he takes care off from her childhood and she is very dear to him. Durga has a rival "Taslim Khan" based in Old city and Neha's life is under threat because of the gang fights between both groups

Neha is always followed by bodyguards and her body guards try to beat up some innocent student in college thinking he might be having links with Khan. Somebody in college calls his friend on Mobile asking to help his innocent friend. A series of Phone calls are shown and msg reaches some one and the phone calls stop with this guy. He is none other than "Charan Tej" who gives life for friendship. He comes to the college in minutes and here is the introduction fight of hero. Elevation of hero is handled excellently by Puri Jagannadh and this is by far the most powerful introduction any new hero got in last decade.

The scenes following revolve around how heroine gets impressed by charan's quality risking his life for somebody he doesn't even know and she falls in love with him in her first look. First half of movie goes really fast with good comedy timing by Charan and his friends (Sunil,Venumadhav etc). There are some gripping moments in the movie when Jagapathi Babu and Charan meet one another and Jagapathi Babu doesn't know that Charan is the same guy who hit his men in college. Interval bang comes in a way where Charan goes to Old city into Khan's den, gives him warning and comes back. By the end of first half, the expectations of people will be set very high about the second half.

Second half deals with how Charan shows the power of youth to fight out both gangs in the city with his intelligence and how Charan manages to win his love by overpowering Jagapathi Babu. The film has to be watched on screen and is a treat to fans and very enjoyable to movie lovers.
