Shh… Idhi Chaala Manchi Ooru. This is the title of an upcoming murder mystery. Produced and directed by Haricharana Prasad, it is made on Apurva Chitra banner. Screen baddie Shafi is making his debut as hero with this film. Mithuna (Neelambhari of Puri Jagannath's film Bachi) is making come back as heroine again. Music is by Srivasanth, with cinematography by Muralimohan Reddy. A media briefing was held today at Dr. Ramanaidu Building Complex, Hyderabad.
Haricharana Prasad - an NRI from Pleasanton in California, who earlier produced Nandita Das-flick Kamlee My Daughter, said: "This is my second film done with a 45-day schedule. My objective behind this project is to introduce the local and young talent. The crew is also fresh. Of course, the Telugu audience is little aware of the fact that Shafi was a Gold Medalist from National School of Drama, New Delhi. Shh will project him in romantic and creative shades. Mithuna is another heroine who made a comeback after Bachi to prove her mettle. I hope she will succeed in her attempt. She did wonderful performance with a lot of maturity compared to her long-gone film."
"Shh is a murder mystery. An accident occurs in a good village. The villagers hush up the incident for their good. After several years, a doctor-couple visits the place, unraveling a chilling murder mystery. Performance by a child artiste will draw attention of the audience. I want to give a realistic touch to the fear factor in this film. Choreography for a theme song will rock. I thank cinematographer for understanding our project and giving it a peculiar type of work to suit murder mystery on the screen. The release is planned between June third week and July first week. Further, I want to a number of films in Telugu as there is no dearth for good stories, if we really want them," he said.
Music director Srivasanth said: "I worked with music directors Harris Jayaraj, RP Patnaik, Mani Sharma and others. I am grandson of music director Satyam. Basically, I am a keyboard artiste with immense liking for music. This being a film with dark shades, there is great scope for background score. The audience will appreciate me after the movie release."
