Dad-son sentiment, stunts and love story
Suman said: “The film is completely a family-oriented entertainer. Primarily it deals with the father-son relationship. Misunderstandings crop up between them and it takes a worst turn. Besides, there is a emotional love subject between debutants. These two elements hand in glove with the subject is dealt with skill by debutant director. Comedy is another major area. When I was in Chennai, the subject outline was told to me. When they sought nearly a 25-day call sheet, I asked them to completely narrate the subject. I felt interested on listening to the script. I also have stunts in the film. Director has perfectly planning the script and its execution too. Cameraman Sudhakar Reddy is a senior technician and he worked in more than 15 films of mine. The unit is not in a hurry to wrap up the shoot, but is progressing well to the multi-dimensional requirements of the subject. It is a welcome gesture that new directors and producers are coming to the film industry.”

It will bring big break to all the artistes and technicians as well.”
