SRIKANTH GAYAM MOVIE
He appreciated the film and called some of the press personally though we had not invited them and made Allu Arjun his nephew and Charan his son speak about the film. I would say I was more inspired by Easy Rider. Chiranjeevi [ Images ] is said to have watched Gamyam. Then with subsequent modification I was able to make the film, which my dad produced. Of course I would have to shoot the journey bit in different parts of India. I have not decided yet. The ‘formula’ normally includes songs, fights and some comedy.
Some producers have even told me they will make my kind of film though I don’t know what my kind of film is. I have not decided yet. The driver and I chatted through the course of journey. There seems to be a similarity between Gamyam and The Motorcycle Diaries especially in the road part. Tilak is a great writer but it’s a pity his works are not read. What happened to the film But India Divided? What made me happy was overhearing a comment at a theatre.
I saw Kamalinee in Mumbai airport once though I did not know who she was and found her cool and casual.
I am a commercial filmmaker. In fact, Giribabu plays the character who is called Purnachandra Rao in the movie.
Then with subsequent modification I was able to make the film, which my dad produced. Though I have number of mentors in the industry, I wanted to approach it in my own way. He appreciated the film and called some of the press personally though we had not srkkanth them sri,anth made Allu Arjun his nephew and Charan his son speak about the film. Were you inspired by The Motorcycle Diaries to do this?
Are you happy that the film has been well received by the critics and is picking up on the commercial front?
Have stars and producers approached you for future projects? Our perspectives were different. I would say I was more inspired by Easy Rider. Both Naresh and Sharwanand acted well.
In fact the character of Gaali Seenu was inspired by the driver. Allari Naresh has received srukanth for his acting. I cast Naresh and Sharwanand because of their body language.
Tilak is a great writer but it’s a pity his works are not read. I wanted the story to connect with the audience. The film is being received well by people too. I will erikanth to re-write it a bit.
I am very happy that the film has got critical acclaim. So both purposes are served. Sharwanand is always well dressed and speaks in a sophisticated manner, and I felt he would suit the rich man’s role. Radhika Rajamani caught up with srikqnth filmmaker for more.
‘Chiranjeevi appreciated Gamyam’
The dialogues also would have to be in Hindi. In fact my dad and brother-in-law, who produced the film want srrikanth dates as they want to produce the next film to be directed by me seeing the success of Gamyam!
Gamyam seems to have a certain freshness about it. When I was a student I was inspired by Che Guevara’s life. I will tell what I want to be told.
The audience seems contented with the film. There seems to be a similarity between Gamyam and The Motorcycle Diaries especially in the road part.
The ‘formula’ normally includes songs, fights and some comedy. She had this look of serenity in her face, and I thought she would make a perfect Janaki. Bunny Allu Arjun loved the film and hugged me. I play the role of a naxalite in Gamyam and styled myself like Che. Gaywm thought Naresh is a bit naughty and he would behave like a bike thief. I was also inspired by the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. We are all friends.
Of course I would have to shoot the journey bit in different parts of India. How did you achieve this? But because of various problems it was shelved.
