In ‘Rama Rama Krishna Krishna’...You are Rama or Krishna?
The title says it all. The hero’s name is Rama Krishna. His character is a blend of Rama and Krishna. Depending on the situation, he is either with the shades of Rama or Krishna or sometimes even both!
The Theme of RRKK
I am not supposed to leak out the theme of RRKK. All I can say is, in all the movies I’ve done, the span of the story for this movie is very big. It is basically a family entertainer with some massy elements. It is a mix of everything.
Mass or class?
I was introduced in a mass movie ‘Devdas’ that had mass dialogues, later Jagadam also was a stylish Mass movie but not totally class. Ready was a class film and same way Maska was a class movie with commercial elements. Now RRKK is a ‘pakka’ mass movie that also has family entertainment.
Your Character in the movie
The highlight of the movie will be the hero’s character. Like the title, the hero’s character will have shades of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna. Depending on the situation, the way the problem is dealt either Rama’s way or Krishna’s way is what is interesting about the character. I can’t tell more than that
The Songs in RRKK
After ‘Maska’ I’ve danced a lot in this movie. Speaking about the music, this is Keeravani garu’s 200th movie. Music has clicked with the audience, especially the title song. I am really happy as all my six movies so far, irrespective of the movie’s success, the audio has been a success. First song, the title song talks about the hero’s characteristics. Second song, Sankaranthi song is a nice colourful song with some dance and third is Oola Ullala with a lot of dance in it. The audience will enjoy it. Fourth song is totally different song, choreographed by fight master Vijay. It is 2 ˝ minute song. It will be one of those songs that will be seen on the edge of the seat! The fifth song is ‘Thu Go Jilla’ choreographed by Prem Rakshith master. We have tried something different and I think people will come back to the theatres to see the song again and again. The last song is ‘Endhuku ra’ where Keeravani sir has sung. It is a situational song.
Comparing the director Srivas’s Lakshyam and RRKK
I liked Srivas’s Lakshyam for the emotional feel of the family in the movie. Especially between the brothers, the feel was brought out well. Even in RRKK, the relationship between father and son has been brought out well. No where it will be dramatic and towards the climax, the feel will be high. Srivas’s strength is to bring the family relationship beautifully to picture. RRKK is quite different from Lakshyam. This movie is a rural subject of course but taken in an urbanized way.
This is my second film with two heroines after Maska. Priya Anand, had previously done ‘Leader’. She is fluent in almost 5 languages like Telugu, Tamil, English, Hindi, and Marathi. She understands the dialogue and then speaks. She is a smart girl who has worked hard for the movie. Bindhu Madhavi is known to all. She is Telugu basically and hard working as well.
Satisfying the Audience
100% Satisfaction is offered in this movie. It is like spending Rs.100 and getting back Rs.150! Three main people involved in this project are Dil Raju, director Srivas and me. Family audience who come to see Dil Raju garu’s movies will not be disappointed. Srivas’s following who come to see mass elements will also not be disappointed. Coming to my case, I’ve done my 100% be it acting, fight or dance. There will be no disappointment from my side especially. The editing has been done and we’ve seen the final cut. Good reviews about the movie have come out.
About Senior Actor Arjun
We were thinking about a lot of actors but thought it would be routine. We finally decided on Arjun. His character needs the dynamism he has. He has given life to a few scenes. In a few scenes, when he’s walking in one point of the story, the audience will feel Goosebumps! He has worked hard in this movie. In spite of being so experienced, he has been nice to everyone. We got along very well.
Ram in this movie!
I’ve tried to offer something different in every movie. This movie is totally different. Being a rural subject movie, I have changed my body language and my slang for this movie. I have spoken in Godavari slang. It will be exactly the way, the boys in Godavari district speak.
The Comedy in RRKK
There is a lot of comedy involved in this movie. Scenes have been made specially to add the entertainment value.
The Highlights of the Movie
The entire film as a whole is good. Most of them will see that the movie has a lot to offer. A sense of curiosity is developed. The highlight of the movie is primarily in the second half where most of them sense Goosebumps on them. Even when the DTS mixing for the movie was being done, everyone experienced the same. Keeravani’s rerecording and Rathnam garu’s dialogues are hair-raising.
Characters I’d like to do
Whenever any director comes to me, if I get a feeling of “Can I do this character?” then I’d readily accept the movie. I always want challenging roles. Though I am in Hyderbad now, I grew up in Chennai. To do this rural subject in villages was really challenging to me.
I am game for multi-starrer movies. Telugu audience would go crazy to see two or more stars in the same movie. But a director bringing such a script should deal with it properly because there’ll be a lot of reservations. There should be no misunderstanding between the stars. It should be a bound script without any changes. The flow should carry on.
The heroine you like most
I’ve worked with almost 12 heroines, be it as heroines or for any dance sequence. Be it from the first movie, Ileana or Shriya for a song. Second movie Isha, Madhu Shalini for a song and then in Ready I worked with Genelia and Tamanna in one character. Maska had two heroines Sheela and Hansika, then Kajal and Poonam, now Priya and Bindhu Madhavi. I like all the heroines I’ve acted with.
Recently Watched Films
It has been a long time since I watched movies. The last movie I saw was Avatar.
Rajahmundry and People there
We shot in Rajahmundry for 86 days, a long schedule. They respect people there a lot. They’ll in fact kill you with their respect. I’ve been to Rajamundry a lot of times before. People should learn a lot from people of Rajamundry.
Oosaravalli’s script is still cooking. The basic line of the story has been conceived and so is the characterization of the hero. A few scenes are being conceived now. Because of the Producers’ Council problem, the shootings have been stalled. Once the problem is solved, shooting for Oosaravalli will resume.
Oosaravalli and other movies
‘Oosaravalli’ will be a different movie to me, to director Surender Reddy and to my uncle ‘Sravanthi’ Ravi Kishore. In my career, it is the movie with highest budget .I’ll talk more about the movie, when the time is right.
Technically Speaking about Oosaravalli
We have spent a lot on this movie. We have got a Super 35 Camera with Master Prime Lens that they use usually in Hollywood movies. The movie is going to be high on standards.
