Kota Bommali PS directed Teja Marni, the maker behind the critically acclaimed political drama Johaar and the action thriller Arjuna Phalguna, is in the news with the innovative promotions. The film is releasing on November 24th.
On Monday, the pre-release ceremony of this film was held in a grand manner in Hyderabad under the name of ‘Kota Bommali PS Prachara Sabha’. In addition to the theme of voting, team and guests innovatively asked questions to the media persons. After that, the film team told about the features of the film, and the guests who were present wished all the best.
Chief guest Boyapati Sreenu began his speech by talking about ‘Lingi Lingi Lingidi’ and its popularity. “Usually the film’s dialogues, visuals, teaser and trailer do the job of popularizing a film. In this case, a song has done that. I have watched the trailer for this movie and I must say that the film conveys its convictions effectively,” he added. The ‘Akhanda’ maker praised the film’s cast and crew, and particularly talked about Shivani Rajasekhar and Rahul Vijay. He added that the ‘Kota Bommali Prachara Sabha’ was an interesting event.
Srikanth said that the story is the hero of the film. “You will see only my character Ramakrishna while watching the movie. The treatment is so natural. I see Geetha Arts as my own banner because of ‘Pelli Sandadi’, ‘Pellam Oorelithe’, and ‘Sarrainodu’. When Bunny Vass garu narrated the story to me, it was so clear that I asked him why he was not wielding the megaphone. I will remember ‘Kota Bommali PS’ for a long time,” he added.
Hero Rahul Vijay said, “Everyone dreams of working with Geetha Arts in the industry. I never imagined that the opportunity would come my way this early in my career. I accepted the offer without listening o the story. Bunny Vass garu treated me with so much respect. A week after the shoot began, I met with an accident. I thought I would be replaced. But the makers waited for me till my recovery. If I got to learn so much from this movie, that’s because of Teja Marni garu. Visuals, background score, dialogues, dances and music are perfect in this film. The BGM is especially solid. The dialogues are highly effective.”
Heroine Shivani Rajasekhar said that she felt lucky to work with Teja Marni after having watched ‘Johar’. “Shooting for this movie was not easy, because we shot in tough terrain. But all that gave me a kick. It was a joy working with Rahul and Srikanth garu. It was fun shooting in Araku. Jagadeesh garu’s visuals are amazing. ‘Lingi Lingi Lingidi’ is great. We are proud to present ‘Kota Bommali PS’ to all the Telugu people across the world. Please watch this movie only in theatres. Don’t encourage piracy,” she added.
Director Teja Marni thanked the producers for trusting him with the project. He revealed that ‘Lingi Lingi Lingidi’ was written off by a lyricist who refused to change a particular line. Post the song’s release, the song became a sensation. ‘Kota Bommali PS’, story-wise, brings out how the police system has been gamed by the political system. “Everyone with a Voter ID needs to watch this movie. You will know why I am saying this on November 24. The producers have pushed me towards the best. I worked with greater conviction on this project. This film is an emotional thriller. If the first half is thrilling, the second half is emotional,” he added.
