The Sun Will Rise Tomorrow (The Hope) is fine picture
poetry. This has nothing to do with Sekera’s work of poetry
under the same name – the difference is that this is a
This copy becomes poetry in motion due to no part of it
being precisely set according to a 100% ruling. Like in
other works of this nature the wonderment of expressions
seem to tell another tale between lines at unbelievable
Only the three main characters are visible right through the
copy of this motion of poetry. The main background consists
only of a forest, lake and a grassy field. If not for the
four songs its costumes and background design would have
been limited to one and the same. Its poetic motion makes it
rhythmic and the music makes the movements in line with a
dance routine in a cultural drama of poet Kalidas type of
film script. Another specialty is that it is in two parts.
Summary of Story:
Although Samudra was once a doctor of medicine, today he is
a Yogi. Among the State forces and terrorists within an open
space devoid of the two in the jungle by himself he
contemplates in meditation in a shelter. On the path he uses
to get to the market place he discovers soldier Akash who
has been shot and lifeless and gives him shelter and treats
him back to good health. In the meantime they discover each
other. Quite different in feelings they put into poetic
expression, song and verse the character of sweet Bhumika
with the anklet, who enters the scene next.
Bhumika’s mission the next day was that of a human bomb
and she was to carry a bomb on her and explode it at a
sports event, but decides otherwise at the last moment,
because she has the urge to carry on living and is on the
run when she enters the shelter, and ruins the peace of all
three of them.
Akash is bent on getting rid of this young Tamil female.
The entry of this woman into his shelter made him to carry
out his contemplations disturbed Samudra too at first tries
persuading her kindly to go away. But she refuses the
suggestion made and her constant friction with Akash makes
her reveal her identity as a human bomb. Thereafter, she
carries on staying there threateningly and forcefully.
These frictions make each other lose their trust, sleep,
tranquility and meditation. Fear of each other makes them
sleep out of the shelter in the bushes of the jungle. Due to
this they come to an agreement to get rid of Bhumika’s bomb
and not live in fear of death.
Getting rid of the bomb in a lonely spot in the jungle
near a pond Bhumika dances and performs with vigour to
express her happiness. Watching her near nakedness makes
Akash lose fear of death and Samudra of living that loomed
in their subconscious.
In the second part the three of them after losing fear and
suspicions start having human feelings once more. Both
Samudra and Akash begins to arouse in secret their love and
feelings for the young maid, in fear. Samudra who
contemplated on being an ascetic, now sees female forms
Akash who wanted to study meditation under Samudra also felt
uneasy and both suffered as a result. Bhumika continues to
act as a normal maid stringing garlands with flowers,
putting ‘pottu’ on her face, applying scents on herself,
dancing and singing some of the sixty four crafts used by
females to entice males. Soon she tries learning Kama sutra
from Akash and meditation from Samudra at the same time.
By now Samudra and Akash, suspicious of each other get
into a tussle to win her attention; once on his return after
visiting the marketplace, he day dreams of her bathing half
naked in the pond through fear he rushes to relate it to her
in the form of poetry only to discover Akash and Bhumika in
a compromising situation.
Out of jealousy at what he saw he tries to win her
towards himself by gifts and presents. But the worldlier
Akash and Bhumika inevitably fall in love. This love that
develops slowly brings back hopes of life to them. But
Samudra who suffers as a result of this development of
struggle for love trilogy and brings back to verse and
poetry and song to finally end up with the success of the
binding of Akash and Bhumika.
Behaving in a deceitful manner Samudra tries to give the
impression Bhumika is having a liaison with him. Although
Akash and Bhumika get angry over this he does not leave her.
Trying to make use of the situation, Samudra tries to get
closer to Bhumika. When she becomes pregnant by Akash,
Samudra tries to say it is he who made her pregnant.
Finally, the child is born. Thereafter the ending is most
surprising and you have got to see it to get the true

The hero who refused to kiss Thamanna
Telugu films are pouring on Thamanna who had almost acted
in all the Tamil films with leading actors. Now she is
pairing with Allu Arjun in a Telugu film titled Badrinath.

The director wanted to shoot a lip to lip kissing scene
between Allu Arjun and Thamanna. Now kissing scenes have
become inevitable in Telugu films. All the Telugu films have
kissing scenes. Thamanna got ready for this scene but Allu
Arjun refused to kiss.

refused to act in the kissing scene. When enquired about

have flopped and hence he is sentimentally refusing to do

Vidya replaces Rani
Both Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan appeared rather content
with their roles in the upcoming film No One Killed Jessica.
But rumours of a cold war between the two have been doing
the rounds since a while. Why? Here is what added fuel to
the simmering fire – a mosquito repellent!
A famous mosquito brand which Rani was endorsing earlier has
decided to replace her with Vidya. This may come as a
surprise to many, but sources close to the brand insist that
Vidya has an edge over Rani, because unlike Rani’s diva
demands and aloofness, Vidya is quite approachable and
Also, Rani has not created major waves with her latest film,
Dil Bole Hadippa, and is no longer hot property in Bollywood.
Vidya has developed a girl-next-door and
take-home-to-your-mother image for herself. She is also on
the plump side, and has made several fashion faux pas in the
past, so people identify with her.
