Director Santosh Kata has a reason to celebrate as ZEE5’s Prema Vimanam, that is produced by Abhishek Pictures, has emerged as a "Dusshera winner"
Prema Vimanam, the feel-good drama that premiered directly on ZEE5 on October 12, earned plaudits upon release from critics and netizens alike. Debutant Santosh Kata wielded the megaphone for the film, starring Sangeeth Shobhan, Saanve Megghana, Anasuya Bharadwaj, Anirudh Nama, and Devansh Nama in key roles. Abhishek Nama produced the film under Abhishek Pictures.
Now, the streamer has officially confirmed that the web film has garnered over 50 million viewing minutes, creating a new record on the platform. “Yayyy... Our #PremaVimanam has crossed 50 million streaming minutes and emerged as the Dussehra Winner. Watch it now!” ZEE5 tweeted. Several celebrities and bigwigs have had kind words to share about the film this week.
Some of the Telugu actors who spoke highly of the film include Vishwak Sen, Naga Shaurya, Priyadarshi, Sushanth and Nikhil Siddhartha. That’s not all. To encourage more viewers to watch the film and subscribe to the platform, ZEE5 has introduced a special Dussehra offer, providing a Rs 100 discount. Prema Vimanam is released in two languages: Telugu and Tamil.
The film revolves around two enthusiastic kids who’re desperate to board an aeroplane despite their poor financial situation. They cross paths with a couple in their late teens, Mani and Abitha, who try to rise above their socio-economic barriers and elope from their village. The supporting cast of the film comprises Ravi Varma, Abhai Naveen, Goparaju Ramana and Surabhi Prabhavathi.
Anup Rubens composed the music for the film. Despite Prema Vimanam being his first film and telling a fairly predictable story, director Santosh Kata displayed enough maturity in the writing, exhibiting a knack for humour and extracting fine performances from the lead cast. The makers of Prema Vimanam are next coming up with Devil, a periodic action thriller starring Kalyan Ram and Samyuktha.
