Films revolving occult sciences and superstitions generally make for interesting viewing, provided they don't end up glorifying it. When done well, they offer an opportunity to take an incive look at our belief system, delve into aspects beyond the comprehension of the common man and result in engaging narratives. While Disney+ Hotstar's Maa Oori Polimera discussed black magic recently, Telisinvallu is a story around 'cult suicide'. The film's teaser was launched today.
The teaser starts with a discussion between Hebah Patel as Chitra and her romantic interest (played by Ram Karthik) on their relationship and its depth. While both proclaim their love for one another, the focus shifts to Chitra's family later. Chitra says she's about to die soon but she's not alone. Her entire family is about to commit suicide to help Chitra's father live again.
A baffled Ram rubbishes the claim but Chitra says there's a basis behind their act, further justified by another character played by Jaya Prakash. A series of mysterious happenings in the slick teaser keep the viewer glued - the references to mass suicides, cult suicides leave you curious. VK Naresh, Pavithra Lokesh and Jaya Prakash too play supporting roles in the film. Sri Charan Pakala's background score lends authority to the glimpse.
Telisinavallu is written, directed and produced by Viplove Koneti under Syringe Cinema while KSV is the presenter. Dharmendra Kakarala is the editor of the film with Upendra Reddy handling art direction. Dr Zhivago is the lyricist. Hebah Patel played a key role in aha's crime-thriller Odela Railway Station recently too.
