It isn’t everyone’s cup of tea to process the loss of a loved one, especially when they’re killed for frivolous reasons. What can that bitterness do to a human? Will that angst give him the courage to talk truth to power? Will it make him go rogue and create his own path to ensure justice? Satyadev’s next film, Godse, a hard-hitting vigilante drama promises to invoke an important thought.
The film’s trailer was launched by actor Varun Tej earlier today at AMB Cinemas, Hyderabad. Incidentally, Varun Tej’s father, Naga Babu too essays a crucial role in the film. In the trailer, we see Satyadev ruthlessly killing people, questioning those in power and getting the justice he deserves in a way he knows best. Aishwarya Lekshmi, in her Telugu debut, plays an investigative officer.
The triggering point for Satyadev to turn a vigilante is of course the loss of a loved one. Several frames in the film depict that he’s unable to come to terms with the loss and asks politicians if silencing people like him is the only way to function in a democracy. Sijju Menon is cast as a corrupt politician while Chaitanya Krishna plays a man who dies for mysterious reasons.
Varghese, Prudhvi Raj, Noel Sean, Priyadarshi, Pawan Santhosh, Guru Charan too feature in important roles. The film is written and directed by Gopi Ganesh Pattabhi and is produced by C Kalyan. Sandy Addanki scores the music for the film while Suresh Sarangam and Sagar Undagandla are the cinematographer and the editor respectively. Godse hits theatres on June 17.
