Having found much-deserved recognition through his principal role in Sukumar's Pushpa: The Rise, Jagadeesh Prathap Bandari is now looking at taking this up a few notches as an actor. First in this pursuit is Sathi Gani Rendu Ekuralu, a crime comedy that has Jagadeesh Prathap playing his first-ever lead role which is all set to premiere on aha on May 26.
The makers released the first trailer of the film to offer a glimpse of the unique world of the Sathi that is beautifully against the backdrop of a small and intimate Telangana village. We learn of Sathi's financial troubles and also those concerning his 2-acre agricultural land (as the title suggests) and how his life is turned upside down in a matter of moments when he stumbles upon a briefcase in a wrecked car. Could this briefcase withhold the solution to his problems? From gangsters to cops and everyone in between, this dark comedy caper promises to take us on a ride that brims with twists, turns and emotions.
Sathi Gani Rendu Ekuralu has been directed by Abhinav Danda with the exciting ensemble cast also including Vennela Kishore, Bithri Sathi, Mohana Sree Suraaga, Raj Tirandasu, Aneesha Dama, among others. The trailer of the film was launched in Hyderabad with noted members of the Telugu Film Industry, including Anudeep, Satyadev, Hanu Raghavapudi, Venky Kudumula, Anish Kuruvella and Sri Suhas, gracing the event.
Sathi Gani Rendu Ekuralu is also part of the ongoing surge in rural tales in Telugu cinema as filmmakers increasingly find themselves drawn to rustic stories of love, crime and passion. And one also finds the audiences, too, responding well to these stories with films like Balagam, Butta Bomma, Sir/Vathi, Colour Photo, Cinema Bandi and even Dasara yielding positive results. Not only do the rural backdrops offer a sense of vibrancy and diversity but one gathers that they also allow filmmakers to explore the many nuances and idiosyncrasies of the two Telugu states. As a much-necessary diversion from the staple commercial films, one also finds these slice-of-life stories to be also quite relatable and engaging.
