Anaganaga O Dheerudu! This is the talking point of many discussions in Tollywood as well as in the discussions of movie buffs. The reason for the excitement is the sensational trailer which was first aired in early december. Since then this fantasy flick, written and directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, has been in the news for the mind-blowing graphics it has and also the revival of a genre called FANTASY, is being much anticipated by the lovers of cinema.
The film has also been in the discussions as it marks the foray of international giant, WALT DISNEY into the Telugu industry. It marks the shift of focus of the international companies with regards to Telugu cinema which in its time had created wonderful fantasy flicks. The revival of FANTASY genre, which popularly is called as “JANAPADAM” by Telugus, espoused earlier by Vittalacharya and Kanta Rao, is very much needed as it diversifies the subjects and adds more to the variety offered by Cinema at present.
The film also heralds change in generations with regards to acting as well as direction departments. It showcases the coming of age of Prakash Kovelamudi, Son of K Raghavendra Rao as a director and Lakshmi Manchu, daughter of Mohan Babu, as the main antagonist and also of Shruti Hasan, daughter of Kamal Hasan, as the female lead. The main protagonist of the movie, Siddharth is well known as a star in his own right and it would be interesting to see him portray an action role as it is a first for him as he has been a lover boy in most of his roles till now.
This fantasy flick is about to be released worldwide on 14th of January on the day of Bhogi. Let us hope that the film would be a blockbuster and would herald a new era of film making.
