MMGL Interview – Paruchuri Gopalakrishna 2 of 2

****Update: April/6/2011: There is nothing new in this post/podcast. Just resurfacing an old interview for more exposure****

Hope you got a chance to listen to part 1 of this interview with Paruchuri Gopalakrishna.

Again, who needs introduction to Paruchuri brothers? I had the opportunity to interview the younger of two, Sri Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, in August 2007. I am sure he has given hundreds of interviews in 30+ years of his career as a writer. I would like to think that this one is different and better than any you have seen.

In this second part, Sri Paruchuri talks about the intricacies of Telugu movies, which is the topic for his Ph.D. dissertation at Osmania University. Dr. Paruchuri also talked about his mother, who was the motivating force behind his decision to add the title, “Dr.” in front of his name. Many wondered why NTR’s Adaviramudu was a sensational hit in 1977.  If you also wondered about it, Sri Paruchuri has an answer for you.
