The makers are looking to release the lockdown comedy in theatres first.
A still of Satya from the trailer
The much-awaited Telugu comedy Vivaha Bhojanambu, directed by Ram Abbaraju, was all set to release on the OTT platform on August 13, Friday. But now the makers have cancelled the release. The film which features Satya as the lead hero of a film for the first time was to be released directly on the SonyLIV, but the makers are rethinking the move now. While the revised release date hasn't been announced yet, word has it that the makers are looking at a theatrical release first, since many small films are rolling out on the big screen since the last few weeks.
Vivaha Bhojanambu features the popular Telugu comedian Satay in the lead role. The trailer opens on the note of the announcement of the lockdown.
Satya Akkala will be seen in the role of Mahesh in the film. Srikanth Iyengar, known for The A1 Express will play Nellore Prabha in the story which seems to be a laugh riot set amid the backdrop of the pandemic-induced lockdown. Kishan has also bankrolled the lockdown comedy. Mahesh, a miserly young man is stuck with twenty people in a house. He is worried about how to make money to feed all the people in the house when the world is shut down by the pandemic.
Watch the trailer, that dropped onYouTube on August 4, here.
The trailer takes us into a sneak peek of the bride-to-be’s family. What happens when you take a rather close-fisted son-in-law and lock him in a house full of people amid a lockdown? It is only hilarious chaos that can happen from that point. Sundeep Kishan, who has also produced the film, was spotted in the trailer. Aarjavee Raj as the female lead comes across as a refreshing choice for the film which also features Sudarshan, Viva Harsha, TNR, Subbaraya Sharma, Madhumani, Shivan Narayana, Dhaya, Nitya Sree, Kireeti, and Kalpa Latha. Bhanu Bhogavarapu has penned the story for the film while Vijay Manikandan has cranked the camera for the film. Anirudh Vijay has given the music and Chota K Prasad has edited the rushes.
The very plot premise of weaving a comedy around the dismal pandemic is a creative high, promising a fun ride for the comedy genre fans and Satya fans especially. With the strong possibility of the movie hitting the theatres first now as per the revised move of the makers, wait it out to watch the fun unfold on the big screen.
