Officially, Rakshit Shetty’s production house Paramvah Studios is just around 8 years old, although he had been making short films under the banner for about 15 years. And in this time, the banner has produced a bunch of films, each of which have been unique in their own right, whether it was Kirik party, Katheyondu Shuruvagide, Avane Srimannarayana, Bheemasena Nalamaharaja, 777 Charlie, Sakutumba Sametha, and now, Sapta Sagaradaache Ello, as well as his upcoming ventures like Bachelor Party, Ibbani Tabbida Ileyali and Abracabadra, among others.


During a recent interaction with anchor Anushree, Rakshit spoke about how his banner goes about getting good content and explained the basic tenet that is followed. Good content, he reckoned, is possible only when a filmmaker has complete freedom to tell the story he has in the way he wants, without having to compromise on any aspect. These, he added, are not formulaic stories, but those that come from the heart and it is such stories that, historically, have become trendsetters. With Sapta Sagaradaache Ello, for instance, Rakshit says that he was as confident in the story, as he is today on the film. And that, he says, is because he knows that the story has come from Hemanth M Rao’s heart. It’s the same logic that’s been followed from Kirik Party to 777 Charlie and with the upcoming films too , he says. All of these filmmakers had the liberty to express themselves through their stories in the way they wanted.

Sapta Sagaradaache Ello, which is a two-part venture, has the first instalment in theatres currently and has been receiving overwhelmingly positive responses from audiences. The film has been doing well at the box office, but its biggest challenge comes this Thursday, when Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan releases. While the film’s acceptance means that there is a sizeable chunk of audience waiting eagerly for Side B, the Dasara week is packed with a lot of big-ticket movies.
