The Marathi film Happy Journey, starring Atul Kulkarni and Priya Bapat in lead roles, garnered attention of many movie goers for its novel plot besides capturing the imagination of several filmmakers across the country over time. The film, that was even remade in Malayalam by Anjali Menon as Koode (featuring Prithviraj Sukumaran, Parvathy, Nazriya Nazim), is now getting a Telugu version. Titled Bro, the remake directed by Karthik Thupurani has Naveen Chandra, Sanjana Sarathy, Avika Gor essaying crucial roles and is set to release directly on SonyLIV on November 26.

Bro revolves around the story of Madhav, a young boy in his teenage years who's forced to leave school and go to Dubai to fund his ailing sister Subhadra's treatment. Subhadra's health, ever since her birth, is complicated by a rare medical condition that affects her immunity. Her father, who runs a small-time garage for livelihood, can't afford her treatment and prefers to send his son Madhav to Dubai to support the family financially. Madhav's rapport with the family worsens after years of isolation and loneliness in Dubai and he returns to his home when he realises that Subhadra is no more. 

The film has a supernatural element focusing on why Subhadra craves for her brother's company even after her death and is desperate to make up for lost time. The story has several layers to it, especially in its portrayal of the complexities that arise amid people in a family and how time may not heal everything. Devi Prasad, Sri Lakshmi, Sai Ronak form the supporting the cast of this unusual yet soulful sibling drama. Bro is produced by JJR Ravichand and Ram Veerapaneni under JJR entertainments and Mango Mass Media.

Shekar Chandra has scored the music for the film which has lyrics by Bhaskarabhatla Ravi Kumar. Azeem Mohammad has cranked the camera for the project while AS Prakash and Viplav Nyshadam are on board as the art director and editor respectively. Sachin Kundalkar is credited with the story.
