One groom and two brides, twist the tale of `Veerabhadra'.
K.M.G. Paradise in Mehdipatnam has a festive look. A marriage is about to take place at the decked up function hall. But for the power generator van stationed outside, you might think it is like any other marriage. The wedding scene is being shot for Ambica Cine Productions, Veerabhadra, produced by Ambica Brothers and directed by A. S. Ravikumar Chowdary (of Yagnam fame). To no one's surprise, there are two brides and one bridegroom. The puzzled guests chatter on about the lucky girl. "That part is under suspense for now," smiles Ramachandra Rao. Balakrishna plays the bridegroom and heroines -- Tanusri Dutta and Sada, the brides. Also spotted at the venue were - Prakash Raj, Sayaji Shinde, Ajay, Vijay and Bharath. "Apart from them all the main characters appear in this climax," informs Rao as he gives us a glimpse of the proceedings. The marriage scene is preceded by an action sequence at the same venue the other day, we are informed. The action seqeunce however was conducted by Vijay, we hear. "By then Peter Heins had given the dates to Rajnikanth-starrer Sivaji. So Vijay had to step in for two days during the clash of dates to shoot the fight scene designed by Heins. They have an understanding between them," explains Rao. A war of words is taking place between the hero and the villains as the bemused heroines and other actors watch with interest. "Balakrishna plays the role of Muralikrishna, a role nearer to common man. If you are good to him he is too good to you. If you rub him on the wrong side, you will have it from him. That's his character in the film. The tag line, Manichiki Manchi punchki punch explains it all," smiles Rao. And he hastens to add, "There is no bloodshed in the film. It is a family entertainer. After a long time you find a mix of comedy in Balakrishna's character. In the company of leading comedians - Brahmanandam, M. S. Narayana, Dharmavarapu, Kondavalasa, Venumadhav, Kovai Sarala and others he excelled in comic parts too. His character exudes a new style."He adds that unlike in most of the recent films where the story revolved around a single track, "our film's theme has two tracks. The first half raises curiosity that is maintained till the flashback revelation stage in the second half. The tightly knitscreenplay by the director helped sustain the suspense and interest."Tanushri Dutta and Sada sport a smiling face adding to the suspense of whom the hero will marry among the two. "While Tanushri represents class, Sada represents the mass."Manisharma's music is friendly, he adds. ". We sold a record 3 lakh cassettes which speaks volumes about the quality of the music." The film is releasing on April 29.
