`Anukokunda Oka Roju' is touted to be a film with a difference.
CHARMING GIRL Charmi in `Anukokunda Oka Roju'.
It is an exasperating experience to run after a unit that is shooting a chasing scene in the streets of the capital, in a scalding 41 degrees Celsius. Spotted on the location, a street in Jubilee Hills are Charmi, Sashank and a few other actors. Director Chandrasekhar Yeleti of Aithe fame is shooting a crucial sequence for Anukokunda Oka Roju, produced by Gunnam Gangaraju and Venkat Dega under the Just Yellow Media (P) Ltd., banner. So the next best thing is to catch up with the makers at their dubbing and recording theatre in the nearby Prashasan Nagar.
"We have shot half the movie in the streets," smiles Gunnam Gangaraju, the architect of Just Yellow . "It is the story of a college girl in whose life one day certain unusual incidents happen and in a jiffy. Charmi plays the role. It is an offbeat role for her. A good singer, she takes up a part time job as a chorus singer, to earn pocket money. She stays in a conglomeration of nearly 300 flats and interacts with everybody especially children in the housing colony. Suddenly, something happens in the life of this ordinary girl-next-door whom everybody likes and it is shocking for them that she is in danger. The plot thickens with each situation that develops as the day passes by."
The word might have been oft repeated, used and abused, but one more time it has to be used as the film is truly `different' from the commercial ventures, according to the producer who announced "all the movies are not the same" with his previous production Aithe that lived up to its promos.
"Most of the movie revolves around Charmi's character with Sashank and Pawan Malhotra (both made their debut with `Aithe') playing the pivotal roles along with Harshavardhan (Amritha Rao in the tele-serial `Amrutham', a Just Yellow production) and Narsing Yadav," he adds. Gangaraju never banks on star power or on the technical gimmicks but believes in scripts with commonsensical situations. "I believe that a theme should have logic. Even supernatural films have to have a logical narrative. Otherwise it crashes. So all my themes are believable," smiles the man who made the award winning children's film, Little Soldiers.
He is in an upbeat mood when he talks about the music. "We have five songs but they are not the regular kind. You can hear a new sound in Keeravani's music. It is trendy and modern," he says as he plans to release the movie shortly.
