When director Kiranraj K was making 777 Charlie, one thing that was often highlighted was his insistence on shooting in the right locations, for which the team travelled quite a bit across the length and breadth of the country. Kiranraj knew that at some point he’d need computer graphics too, but for the most part, he wanted everything to be authentic.
Eventually, when 777 Charlie came out, its visual brilliance was one of the many talking points about the film. More than 50 days since, now that the film is out on OTT too, in Kannada with English subtitles, Kiranraj and co. have finally let us in on the graphic work that went into making 777 Charlie the magnificent visual beauty that it is.
Last evening, they released a video detailing the VFX work by Pinaka Studios, the results of which are truly mind-blowing. And, mind you, this is only Part 1 of the detailing they brought into 777 Charlie.
The film, produced by Rakshit Shetty and RS Gupta for Paramvah Studios, was Kiranraj’s launchpad, a project that he dedicated 5-6 years to. In the run-up to the release, the team had held a series of premiere shows across the country, which drummed up positive word-of-mouth publicity for them. So, when the film came to theatres, it had a stupendous run. The Rs 150-crore it made from theatrical and non-theatrical revenue made Rakshit a happy man, one who put aside a portion of the profit for the benefit of the team that worked on the film, and another for the welfare of NGOS working on animal rescue and rehabilitation.
The film, which had soul-stirring music by Nobin Paul, also starred Sangeetha Sringeri, Raj B Shetty, Gopalkrishna Deshpande, Bobby Simha, among others. Out now on Voot Select, the other-language versions are expected to drop on Amazon Prime Video shortly.
Also, even though 777 Charlie was released in Hindi too and did fairly good business in that market, Rakshit has said that he’s been getting offers to sell the remake rights. He is not keen, as he believes that the dedication that Kiranraj put into this film is difficult to replicate.
