Thursday, January 22, 2015 • Telugu Comments

Writer Anil Ravipudi, who is making his debut as director with 'Pataas', talked about the film, Kalyan Ram etc in an exclusive interview with Indiaglitz.

Excerpts

Got good name with that film

After completing my B.Tech in 2005, I joined as an assistant director to my uncle P.A.Arun Prasad. Then after, I worked as a writer for a few films like Shouryam, Sankham, Kandireega, Masala etc. I got good recognition in the industry after working for 'Kandireega'. I traveled with director Santosh Srinivas right from the scripting stage for that film.

He want to do it with a big hero

I prepared the script of 'Pataas', when working for 'Kandireega'. When I approached Kalyan Ram with the script, he liked it and said that he will produce the film with a big hero. But I said that it is the story prepared for him, he agreed to act in it. It was how 'Pataas' started.

He encouraged me well

'Pataas' will be an out and out commercial entertainer and there will a mind game. Audiences can't expect what will happen next. Kalyan Ram looks very different in 'Pataas', compared to his previous films. He played a very hyper role in this film. He loved the film and characterization so much and worked for the film. His comedy, dances etc will attract everyone. I can't forget his encouragement right from the start to the completion of the project.

Writer job is tough

Writers are first directors. When directing our own scripts, we would have a better vision and clarity than directing the stories penned by others. I personally think that a writer's job is tough than a director's.

Great experience

It is a great experience working with senior actors like Saikumar, M.S.Narayana etc. Saikumar encouraged us when we were doing a satire on his 'Kanipinche moodu Simhalu' dialogue.

Family enteratainer

Watching the trailers, many think that this movie is only a mass entertainer. But the whole family can enjoy this movie. There are all the elements to satisfy the family audiences.

Anil Ravipudi concluded : " 'Pataas' is a very good entertainer. Everyone will enjoy it. My team members have worked very hard for this film. I hope everyone gets good name with this movie and they will be successful".
