On The Sets - Prathighatana
Shooting of Charmi starrer ‘Prathighatana’ is currently progressing in Hyderabad. Charmi is playing a key role as journalist in this Tammareddy Bharadwaja’s directorial venture which is being made on Charita Chitra banner. A press meet was held at the shooting location to brief the film’s details.
Charmi said, “I’m playing a brave journalist who listens to her heart and fights for the justice.”
Tammareddy Bharadwaja said, “It’s been since six years I’ve directed a film. The news and TV channels and newspapers are making me feel sad and think deep for the kind of leaders people are casting their votes. The movie ‘Prathighatana’ is based on a rape incident that happened in Orissa. The victim of the rape is still in coma. I wanted to work with Gopal Reddy right from the film ‘Alajadi’ and finally got the opportunity to team up with him now as he showed interest as soon as he listened to the story.
‘Prathighatana’ is a political satire movie in which Charmi will be seen as a journalist. The film has all commercial elements. Reshma is also essaying another important role. We started the regular shooting on 25th and will carry on with nonstop shooting.”
Lakshmi Bhupal said, “Vijaya Shanti’s ‘Prathighatana’ was released many years ago. But we are doing this film by only using that title as it’s the apt one for this story. The movie can be rated successful if the film attracts 10,000 people, makes 1,00,000 people think and change one person.”
Raghubabu said, “This film is being made with a good script and good cameraman. ‘Prathighatana’ is a message oriented film with commercial elements. I wish this film will become successful on par with the older version.”
