It's a never-heard-before story in the world: Vijayendra Prasad

Monday, January 23, 2017 • Telugu Comments

The audio of 'Srivalli' was released today in Hyderabad.  The event was graced by the cast and crew of the film, besides guests like Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, Rajamouli, Koratala Shiva, Vakkantham Vamsi and others.

Vijayendra Prasad said, "I love short-cuts.  Do you know how to lie?  Story-telling is a pack of lies, which should seem like a reality.  I say this casually.  I asked a guy to apply this logic with his girl friends.  While he may have got murdered, I have survived.  Last year, after the success of 'Baahubali' and 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', the world recognized me as a liar.  My family members, Keeravani, Valli, Rajamouli haven't earned much in proportion to their success and in comparison with their colleagues.  But I see a lot of self-confidence in them.  The kick that one gets by living honestly and faithfully can't be had from anything else.  I have a social responsibility.  A father may not be able to give his son wealth, education, etc.  Social responsibility is what one has to bequeath.  It's wrong to cheat the distributors by gloating about one's movie.  There is no film without a story.  The kind of story that 'Srivalli' has not come previously.  No individual is born a murderer, prostitute, etc.  The subject of this film deals with elements like longing that has a past life connect, psychological aspects, etc.  I can say that nowhere in the world has such a story ever been written."

Paruchuri Gopalakrishna said, "I had to test my fate in Chennai after applying for leave at the college where I was a lecturer.  I happened to check my weight at a bus stand on my way to Chennai.  I don't know how it happened, but the weighing machine said that if one door closes on me, another one opens.  Vijayendra Prasad has risked it by making a film on psychology.  When we wanted to direct, NT Rama Rao garu suggested us not to do.  I congratulate Vijayendra Prasad on trying to compete with his son, who is at the top of the world.  Every father would like to be defeated at the hands of his son.  He is daring to compete with his son.  Without knowing the audience's pulse, it's not possible to survive in the industry this long.  I wish him all the best."

Rajeev Kanakala said, "I didn't understand the strength of the film while shooting for it.  I understood it when I dubbed for it.  'Srivalli' is the first game-changer film for me in the last 14 years."

BVSN Prasad, "I have known Vijayendra Prasad garu's family for the last 25 years.  He is an inspiration to all of us.

Ananth Sriram said, "This is a scientific erotic thriller.  Leaving aside the metaphysics, a lot of chemistry happened in my body after listening to the story.  Usually, shooting after writing, but in this case, the lyrics were written after the shoot."

BVS Ravi said, "Vijayendra Prasad garu's family members are talented and cultured.  Sree Lekha garu became a music director when she was all of 12 years old.  I know the story of 'Srivalli'.  This is a gripping story.  I am hoping that this film will be a big hit."

Hema said, "Vijayendra Prasa garu and his family members have always encouraged me and cast me in most of their movies.  His stories are very youthful.  I think he is still a 16-year-old at heart."

Vakkantham Vamsi said, "When it's a writer making a movie, it would have a very good story.  I have lost count of how many times I cried while watching 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'.  Although I know the story of 'Srivalli', I am still excited to watch the movie."

MM Srilekha said, "I am very happy that Rajamouli anna has attended the audio launch of my movie for the first time.  At the time of making 'Dharma Chakram' and 'Taj Mahal', anna changed my approach to music.  Keeravani anna tells me on face if I don't do it well.  I have done 75 movies so far.  I am called the fastest music director.  For this film, each of the tunes was finalized in 10 minutes!"

MM Keeravani said, "The songs are coming across as story-based.  Thirty years ago, C Rajamani garu, a Malayali music director, asked me to join under him at a time when I was looking for work.  It was Chinnanna (Vijayendra Prasad) who advised me to take the train to Bengaluru even though I was not asked to by Rajamani garu because of last minute change.  Appreciating my sincerity, I was encouraged by the music director.  That's how my career took off.  I thank Chinnanna for the life-changing advise.  Being a joint family has meant a lot.  I can't talk about all that now because it's so much."

Prabhas, who spoke through an AV, said, "For any film to do well, the story is very important.  I was shooting for 'Rebel' when Vijayendra Prasad garu narrated to me the story of 'Baahubali' for 10 minutes.  But the story haunted me for hours.  'Baahubali' and 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' released in a span of two weeks.  They both broke records.  It's not an ordinary thing.  I wish team 'Srivalli' all the best."

Koratala Shiva, who launched the trailer, said, "Prabhas used to tell me during the making of 'Mirchi' that there may not be a family that is more passionate about cinema than Vijayendra Prasad garu's.  I try to be like them, but I am not able to.  I always try to write like him, I try to direct like Rajamouli garu.  He has written stories bigger than those he used to write when we were students.  At this age, he has thought of advanced ideas like 'Srivalli'.  I have always liked Srilekha garu's music since the days of 'Dharma Chakram'.

The producers said, "When we were making this film, a big festival happened.  That's 'Baahubali'.  Everyone prayed for its success.  I have watched it ten times.  Since Koratala Shiva garu is here, we want to say that 'Srimanthudu' is a great concept.  It's a great thought to help one's village.  Me and my husband are doing out bit in the same way as we have always believed in it.  Vijayendra Prasad garu has selected the right lyricists.  The music is great.  'Srivalli's subject is about science.  Scientists make inventions with right intentions.  But their inventions are misused at times.  The story of 'Srivalli
