Just as promised, Hemanth M. Rao and Co. are here with the much-awaited teaser of the upcoming film Saptha Sagaradaache Ello. As the title suggests, and also evidenced by the teaser video, the film boasts of an intense love story between the characters of Rukmini Vasanth and Rakshit Shetty that ebbs and flows profusely. Rakshit Shetty, the birthday boy, is seen playing Manu to Rukmini's Priya with Hemanth M. Rao at the helm.
There is a palpable intensity about this love story and the teaser manages to capture just that. Thanks to Charan Raj's score that blends melancholia, innocence, and drama to a great effect and infuses dramatic energy into the film - director Hemanth Rao had already revealed that the narrative of Saptha Sagaradaache Ello comprises two timelines (spanning about a decade) and Rakshit Shetty will be seen in two contrasting looks in the film. The teaser mostly includes visuals from the first timeline but is suggestive of the dramatic arc of the entire story.
The team of Saptha Sagaradaache Ello is expected to begin the next schedule of production towards the end of June and wrap up the remaining half of the film. Rakshit Shetty, who turns 39 today (June 6), has had to undergo a stark physical transformation for his second look in the film which was unveiled a couple of weeks ago, creating immense intrigue among the digital audience. Bearing facial scars and greying beard, along with a heavier-set physique, the second look (termed Ten Years Later to suggest a time leap in the story) presents a more damaged and brooding side to his Manu - the second half of the film will have an additional cast member who will be part of a romantic angle with Rakshit's character. The team plans on unveiling the new cast member very soon.
Saptha Sagaradaache Ello marks the second collaboration between Rakshit Shetty and Hemanth M. Rao with the duo having previously worked on the 2015 film Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu. Post the critical success of the film, Hemanth Rao went on to make the neo-noir Kavaludaari along with Rishi and Anant Nag, and Rakshit Shetty, on the other hand, scored his biggest commercial success to date, Kirik Party (2016). The actor-producer has all his focus laid on the upcoming pan-India film 777 Charlie in which he plays the main lead - the film showcases an endearing relationship between Rakshit's Dharma and his pet-pal Charlie as they embarking on a soul-searching journey.
