Debutant Yalamanda Charan directs the film which also stars Viva Harsha, Dhanraj in key roles
Back in the 1990s and 2000s, it was quite a common sight to watch a bevvy of star comedians together in many Telugu films, thanks to filmmakers like Jandhyala, EVV Satyanarayana, Srinu Vaitla and others. However, with an overflow of narrative-driven, hero-centric films, the scope of comedians in mainstream cinema is reducing year after year.
Except for Anil Ravipudi, it’s hard to spot any filmmaker in the current generation of Telugu filmmakers who’s given comedians anything worthy to sink their teeth into. However, in what can be termed a welcome surprise, a flurry of comedians are teaming up for a crime comedy thriller titled Bhuvana Vijayam, helmed by debutant Yalamanda Charan.
Sunil, Vennela Kishore, Srinivas Reddy, Dhanraj, Viva Harsha, Prudhvi Raj and Bigg Boss Vasanthi are joining forces for Bhuvana Vijayam, produced by Himalaya Studio Mansions and Mirth Media. The lively first look of the film was launched by Venu Udugula on Saturday. The poster has all the leading characters in the film seated in a room, keenly looking forward to something.
The comedy is gearing up for a summer release and promises to be worthy watch on the big screen. Goparaju Ramana, Raj Tirandasu, Jabardasth Raghava, Ananth, Sonia Chowdary. Snehal Kamat, Shaking Seshu and Satti Pandu play other supporting roles in the film. Shekar Chandra scores the music for the project while Sai is the cinematographer and Chota K Prasad is the editor respectively. Lakshmi presents the film produced by Kiran and VSK.
While Vennela Kishore has largely stuck to comedy roles in mainstream films, Sunil, Srinivas Reddy and Dhanraj have tried their luck in a wide variety of stories, from dramas to thrillers. The release date of the film will be finalised once the makers wrap up the censor formalities.
