The film, which traces the journey of two musicians, one a hardcore rockstar and another, a classical enthusiast and how their paths intertwine, is slated for a December release.

It was only days ago that the team of director Pavan Wadeyar’s Raymo had its wrap-up pooja, on completion of principal photography. And now, the filmmaker is ready to share glimpses of his film. As a starter, earlier today, Pavan released the first teaser of the film, which introduces audiences to his lead cast, Ishan as the title character Raymo and Ashika Ranganath as Mohana.

From the teaser, it appears that Raymo is a rockstar, who is truly living it up in style, with the cars, girls and all things luxury. But then he chances upon Mohana, who has a more classically-inclined style of music. What happens when rock meets classical forms the rest of the narrative.

Speaking at a press briefing earlier this month, Ashika had said, “This is a film in which everything, right from the script to the cast and the crew, everything worked out perfectly. I don’t think I have done a character like this before, wherein I have got so much scope to perform. It is very rare for an actress to get a role that is not only substantial, but also gets almost equal relevance in the narrative as the hero. I am very lucky, but also thankful to Pavan sir for considering me for this role and believing that I am apt for it. I don’t get to dance in this film, given that it is about musicians. Of course, there are good songs by Arjun Janya that have been choreographed by Imran Sardhariya, but these are not the typical dance numbers. This is a role that leans heavily on performance.”

Raymo, meanwhile, is Ishan’s second film in Kannada, after his debut, Rogue. While Raymo has been delayed by the pandemic, the actor has been making inroads in Tollywood, with a couple of web shows, as well as a pan-Indian film called Tatvamasi.
