The Telugu-dubbed version of the hit Kannada film Dia is gearing up for a direct digital release on YouTube this weekend on August 19. Dia, a heartwarming love triangle featuring Pruthvi Ambar, Dheekshith, and Kushee Ravi in the lead roles, is written and directed by KS Ashoka. RK Nallam and Ravi Kashyap are producing the Telugu version jointly under Klapboard Productions and Vibha Kashyap Productions. Kalyan Raghav has penned the dialogues for the film. The makers had already released the songs composed by B Ajaneesh Loknath recently which have gathered good responses from music lovers online.
Dia is a Kannada film that earned immense popularity during the 2020 lockdown upon its release on Amazon Prime and has cut across language barriers in various parts of the country with its intriguing storyline with shocking twists and mellifluous music. The film revolves around a biotechnology student Dia Swaroop and her senior Rohit, who like each other but don't express their love owing to a few apprehensions. Just when one feels Dia has moved on in her life, she meets Adi and sparks fly between the two. However, there's a twist in store. Where's Dia's love life headed?
A section of audiences had also compared Dia to the Telugu movie Andaala Rakshasi, starring Lavanya Tripathi, Naveen Chandra and Rahul Ravindran in key roles. Yet, Dia has its own charm with the unique, poetic treatment of a love triangle and has a story with a universal appeal. If you didn't know by now, Dia is ironically also being remade in Telugu as Dear Megha starring Adith Arun and Megha Akash, to hit theatres shortly. Will the release of Dia's Telugu version by any means affect the prospects of Dear Megha? Only time may have an answer.
Vishal Vittal and Sourabh Waghmare are joint cinematographers for Dia. Naveen Raj has edited the film.
