The film will be a reminder to the people of the region to achieve the goal of statehood, says KCR
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K. Chandrasekhara Rao on Wednesday gave the clap for the ‘muhurat’ shot of ‘Udhyamam’, yet another film revolving around the theme of separate Telangana movement. The cast and crew are yet to announced, though.
The film with ‘Maa Oopiri’ (Our breath) as the tagline, is produced and directed by Vangari Chandrasekhar, an activist of the separatist movement. The logo for ‘Udhyamam’ was recently released by the Telangana Joint Action Committee Chairman M. Kodandaram.
The ‘muhurat’ took place at Telangana Bhavan in Banjara Hills, the State headquarters of the TRS. Several films were produced with the Telangana movement as the theme but only very few of them made a bang, with more of them ending up in just a whimper.
The last such film was ‘Jai Bolo Telangana’, directed by Shankar that was success and got critical acclaim, including a couple of Nandi awards.
TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao has expressed the hope that the film “Udhyamam” will be a big hit as it was being produced in a much different form from “Jai Bolo Telangana” and “Poru Telangana”.
Talking to reporters after the inaugural shot for the film at the TRS office, Mr. Rao said the film was expected to be a reminder to the people of Telangana to achieve the goal of Statehood. It should unify the people of the region.
