Game On is the latest film that has caught the imagination of one and all through its impressive promos. Geetanand and Neha Solanki will be seen in meaty roles in the upcoming action thriller produced by Ravi Kasturi under the banner of Kasturi Creations and Golden Wings Productions, presented by Sakshi Ravi.
Dayanandh directs this film and he is a huge Puri Jagan fan. When asked about his entry into films, he says, "I developed an interest in movies during my school days, and it intensified after watching films like Happy Days and Yem Maaya Chesaave. Inspired by Puri Jagannath, I aspired to become a director. After pursuing a six-month course in production and sound at Annapurna Film School, here I am with my debut film".
When asked about Game On, Dayanandh says the film diverges from conventional commercial cinema and showcases how a person's life transforms when a game becomes part of it. "It progresses through nine tasks, and the second half of the film promises intriguing challenges. The central theme explores how this game aids someone who has undergone trauma," says Dayanandh.
The teasers concealed many facets including Madhubala's iconic character and Aditya Menon's portrayal of a psychological doctor. Shubhalekha Sudhakar plays another significant role, contributing to the film's richness and Neha Solanki's character adds a masculine touch.
Dayanandh thanks his producer Ravi Kasturi for believing in his script and giving him creative freedom. " Ravi Garu's confidence grew in me after the initial schedule, prompting an increased budget for the film. Game On is not having a great release and when asked about the same, the young director says "Despite a limited release initially, positive previews will help the film's gradual growth in theaters and I am confident about it".
Game On maintains a raw and rustic feel, the film resonates with the youth while delving into profound family emotions. It is all set for a February 2, 2024 release. Watch this space for more updates.
