A working still from Krishna Vamsi’s ‘Paisa’  


Director Krishna Vamsi’s movie starring Nani, Catherine Tresa and Siddhika Sharma is all set to hit the theatres today

A year after it was to be released, Paisa appears to have sorted out all its post-production hitches, and is set to hit the cinemas on Thursday.

The third movie from the Yellow Flowers stables, produced by Ramesh Puppala, Paisa ought to have seen the light of the day in December 2012, but for it the numerous problems that had been plaguing it. However, now the Qube codes have been mailed to distributors and exhibitors, and physical prints despatched wherever necessary.

Starring Nani, director Krishna Vamsi’s movie has Catherine Tresa and Siddhika Sharma playing the female leads.

The usual question on the number of screens where the movie would be beamed goes unanswered, considering the pre-release blues that the makers had found themselves in.

For Nani, in his career of a half-a-dozen films, Paisa will be the movie hitting the maximum number of screens, next only to his much-acclaimed Eega.

“Simply put, its all about how money affects, impacts each person differently,” is what the director has to say when asked about the story.

This admittedly out-and-out commercial film has the hero fighting over Rs.500, pitted against the baddies who fight for lakhs of rupees. It also attempts to show how politicians spend endless money during the elections and how they leverage the hawala network.

Needless to say, there are enough fights and a special song, not necessarily the usual ‘item’ number. In true Hyderabadi style, Krishna Vamsi has shot a nativised sequence of the French-European game ‘Parkos’, played as it is on the rooftops of houses, with people chasing a kite made of 50 notes of Rs.1,000 denomination after it was slashed in a ‘pench’.
