Filmmaker Sunil Kumar Reddy's 'Valasa' is gearing up for a release soon. Bankrolled by Yakkali Ravindra Babu of Sravya Films and Kalakar Productions, the film has completed all its production and post-production works.
"Migrant workers have always seen their adopted cities as their own. They were orphaned all of a sudden when the coronavirus pandemic struck the country this year. They left for their native places because they were rendered jobless. They had to walk all the way to their homes. 'Valasa' is based on their stories. It's a road film. Their friendships, their travails, their fears, their sorrows are what the film is about," the director has said.
The producer said that the film reflects contemporary realities. "Having completed censor formalities, it will release in October," he added.
Starring Monoj Nandam and Vinay Mahadev, this one has newcomers Teju and Gowri as the female leads. Tanusha, Tulasi Ram, Manisha, FM Babai, Samudram Venkatesh, Nalla Sreenu, Mallika, Chinnari, Sajid, Raman and Vasu are part of the cast.
Music is by Praveen Immadi, the cinematography is by Naresh Kumar Madiki. Sunil Kumar Reddy has also penned its story, screenplay and dialogues.
