With globalization taking its centre stage in India, Warner Brother Inc, one of the leading international film houses has joined hands with Dil Raju’s Sri Venkateshwara Creations to produce the film titled 'Brindaavanam' with a budget of Rs 45 crores and a band of prominent actors in Telugu film industry like NTR, Prakash Raj, Srihari, Kota Srinivas Rao, Brahmanandam, Ahuti Prasad and Raghu Babu. Dil Raju with his continuous flops after ‘Kotha Bangaru Lokham’ is now banking heavily on NTR and his die hard fans.
The real hero is NTR, but there are shadow heroes-Prakash Raj and Srihari and two heroines-Kajal and Samantha. From the sources, the story appears to be going like this. Samantha and Kajal are from two rival families of a village. The active persons in those families are Prakash Raj and Srihari who always vow to revenge each other. NTR comes in contact with Kajal while she is on her education in the city. Kajal and Samantha being cousins, Samantha wanted to help Kajal come out of the unwanted marriage alliance fixed by the family. NTR comes in picture with his innovative ideas of breaking the marriage but in the process he ends up bringing together the two rival families.
Vamsi Paidipally’s this 2nd project with Dil Raju is now based on a typical family masala for which he has contributed in the form of story, screenplay and direction. After Magadheera’s success Kajal Agarwal is yet to settle with her subsequent films ‘Arya 2’ and ‘Ganesh’ failing miserably and ‘Darling’ getting reasonable reviews. She has joined hands with Samantha who was just introduced through ‘Ye Maya Chesave’. For both the heroines this film has to serve as a platform to establish better market values.
With ‘Kick’ giving a good kick to his career Thaman is now in cloud nine with as many offers pouring in. The music release has received good reviews and he seems to be finding special place for his innovative beats. The songs ‘Eyi Raja’ and ‘Mojjaray’ are catchy numbers showing his quality. One can expect a good direction in music for this film.
Chota K Naidu’s camera does not need any introduction. He is one of the sought after cameraman and is a good fit for any high profile film. The films don’t get completed without shooting in a foreign location. For this film Greece has been the location to shoot some songs. And the other locations the movie was shot were Hyderabad, Vikarabad, Pollachi, Ladakh, Kulu Manali, Haridwar, etc. The highlight of the film is the "traditional house" designed by Anand Sai on a 4 acre land at Bachupally. The garden of that particular location gives the total feel of "Brindaavanam".
Peter Hyenes appears to have generated an affinity to India and Indian films and he is now almost seen contributing to many films being produced in India. Already action packed body of NTR can be expected to generate much more action with Peter Hyenes support.
NTR, who has given consecutive hits through ‘Rakhi’, ‘Yamadonga’, ‘Kantri’ and ‘Adhurs’ is brimming with high level of confidence with his renewed physic which his fans appear to be adoring. He has been all along doing mass oriented action packed films and this is going to be his first family drama one can remember of. This will certainly test his capabilities as a multi-talented hero.
Vamsi Paidipally’s earlier project with Dil Raju was Prabhas-Ileana starrer ‘Munna’ which received wide appreciation but did not fare well at box office. He is claimed to have proper acumen to provide good story and hence we can expect an adorable family drama which can further add value with NTR’s fan following.
