Allari Naresh-starrer 'Itlu Maredumilli Prajaneekam' is heading to theatres on November 25. The film's pre-release event was held in Hyderabad on Sunday.
Speaking on the occasion, the 'Naandhi' actor said, "Ninety percent of the film unfolds in a forest. I thank the cinematographer for getting the colour palette so right. The art direction is another plus. The shoot was completed in 56 working days. I am also blushing when people say I am looking handsome in the movie. The story is set in a tribal village. As such, the slang and language are authentic. The dance masters have done a great job; the two songs have a strong visual impact. This film is a team effort. About 250 crew members have worked on the film and I thank them all today. They slogged day in and day out. Vennela Kishore has played a fun character. Forty percent of the movie is comical in nature. The rest of it is going to be serious stuff. Anandhi is an actress who can emote a range of emotions through her eyes."
The event was attended by actor Sree Vishnu as the chief guest. He said, "I am told 'Itlu..' is a content-driven movie. I wish the producers, who come with very good taste, all the best. They are surely going to score a hit. Maredumilli forest is a beautiful area. I got to shoot there for 30 days in the past. The director needs to be appreciated for choosing the backdrop and title. Coming to Naresh, his movies like 'Gamyam' and 'Shambo Shiva Shambo' have been content-driven. 'Naandhi' is one of them, not the first such film from him. I congratulate him on this occasion."
Composer Sricharan Pakala was also praised by the speakers. Produced by Zee Studios and Hasya Movies, the film has Sampath Raj in a key role. Raam Reddy (cinematography), Chota K Prasad (editing), Brahma Kadali (art direction), Abburi Ravi (dialogue), and Pruthvi (stunts) have worked on it.
