Vengeance and Retaliations have been the gruesome elements prevailing between the lead characters of Parithala Ravi and Maddelacheruvu Reddy. The real life conflicts indeed haps to be a cinematic drama as they seek vengeances from the core of their heart.

Ram Gopal Varma’s intensive researching on the murder plots between these characters should have helped him to make it more appealing over the screens. For instances, the newfangled TV set bomb plots were one of the major highlights in news channels and in turn the car bombing was yet another sensation.

The two bigwigs turned the attention of entire nation with their own conflicts.

Exactly getting it righter terms, this could be one perfect interesting job for Ram Gopal Varma as he exceeded his very own potentials and got deeper with research works. Imagine an auteur walking straight into the territory of Ananthapuram questioning about Late Parithala Ravi to his wife.

Much before the filming would kick-start, there were many protests made against the film project.

His next level of poking into the subject was his tête-à-tête with Maddelacheruvu Suri. Guess what? The real and reel life characters do have some identical traces when it comes to certain traits of emoting through eyes. As a matter of fact, Ram Gopal Varma was keener on signing Suriya for this role.

Well is RGV trying to replicate the exact happenings of reality over the screens?

Of course not, most of the quotients have been fictionalized as Ram Gopal Varma himself admits saying, “Yes their thoughts, their actions, and their emotions are highly exaggerated and that’s because cinema’s business is to exaggerate so as to heighten the emotional state of the viewer in the theatre. To this purpose everything about the film from its title to its posters to its promotional videos all should be employed for the same. It’s only then that the reel will look real and the real will look very realistic.”
