Belonging to the dark psychological thriller genre, the film takes us on a journey encapsulating a spine-chilling experience. Having said that, the film has steered through some challenges during the shoot as well.
On the same Directed by Kiran Reddy, shares on the thriller is a result of hardwork, passion and struggles faced while shooting. The team of handful of people have created something so magnificent on a shoe-string budget is totally commendable. It shows the undying passion for cinema and story-telling that such adversities don’t come in the way of catering to the audiences.
Director shares, “The temperatures were sub-zero, a lot of snow with wind blowing on our faces. We started this movie as an independent film now it is a feature but in the start, the crew is cast as well. The actor who was not giving a shot was helping us behind the camera with lights etc. We worked as a family. A lot of effort went in as a family to achieve this goal.”
Further Kiran mentioned that, “Adding to these challenges, the shooting came to an abrupt hault when neighbors thought we were filming adult content and called the police. We had to show the footage and eventually convince them.”
By the looks of the trailer, the movie has us totally looking forward to the release. Which stars Bhargava Poludasu, Raskesh Galebhe, Poojitha Kuraparthi, Lakshmi Bharadwaj and is jointly produced by Offbeat Films and S Originals, in association with Mango Mass Media.
