The thought-provoking movie ‘Minugurlu’, conveys one message very clearly – the visually-impaired people long for acceptance rather than sympathy. Though they are confined within the dark walls, they lead happier lives as they have better visualisation in almost every sphere of life.

With the success of the small-budget movie crossing 50 days both in the city and Hyderabad centres, the Vizag Film Society hosted one-day workshop on the making of ‘Minugurulu’ by inviting its director and producer Ayodhya Kumar Krishnamsetty to the city. Post the free screening of the much-talked about film, Mr. Ayodhya spoke on the metamorphosis of Telugu film industry over 100 years. He gave a digital presentation on the state of good cinema and its impact on the audience. Addressing around 150 participants in the two-hour workshop here on Friday, the director of the film said taking the first step right was the most crucial part in the highly competitive industry such as film world. In the end, certificates were given away to the participants. Andhra University Vice-Chancellor G.S.N. Raju appreciated the film for its unique story and presentation. Among others, star-maker L. Satyanand and honorary secretary of Vizag Film Society Narava Prakasa Rao spoke.
