A date with… Nuvve… Nuvve…

We arrived at Sravanthi Movies office by 7:00 am on 10th September 2002. Since that day happened to be Vinayaka Chaviti, producer Ravi Kishore was busy performing Ganesh Pooja. At 8 am, director Trivikram showed up and he drove us to the shooting spot in a brick-colored Fiat Palio car. The shooting spot that day was the Dr. Ambedkar Sports Stadium located at BHEL, Hyderabad.

As soon as we reached the spot, the first thing, which caught our attention, was Sunil relishing his breakfast with a mouthful of everything he could lay his hands on from the breakfast table. The moment he saw us, he came up with an instant joke on the '.com' idea - 'Nenu food kottetappude teesukuraavaala? Ide ante!!'

If you thought, enjoying the witty dialogues of Trivikram and watching Sunil and his pranks on the screen is fun, we have to tell you how funny things could get with these people around. These guys can crack jokes with so much ease and no effort that it was we who had to make an effort to control our laughter enjoying those funny jokes. We had a ball laughing away to glory.

The producer Ravi Kishore mentioned to us that though it was not conspicuous, the budget for that day's shoot was 1.25 lakhs. The scenes to be canned on that day had to have the backdrop of a cricket match. 15 models were hired to act as heroine buddies and each model was paid Rs 1,000/- a day as remuneration. Around 100 junior artists were hired to act as the crowd for the cricket match and each one was paid Rs 300/-. Rent for the stadium was Rs 35,000/- a day. The other expenses of that day included breakfast, lunch and other entertainments for the cast, crew and junior artists.

Tarun was the next important person to arrive at 9:30 am. He drove his black Mitsubishi Lancer to the location. Sunil's car is a Grey colored Hyundai Accent. After having breakfast, the entire unit moved into the stadium to set the things up.

Shriya was the last one to arrive the crew started canning the scenes that did not involve Shriya.

The scenes

The scene that was canned in the morning is something like this -

Tarun is batting at the pitch as Sunil and his gang sit in the gallery. Sunil starts betting with his pal that Tarun is going to make a half-century. When Tarun makes 46 runs, he happens to glance at Shriya who is giving a sweet smile to him. He falls in a trance with her looks and the bowler clean bowls Tarun. When Sunil tries to make an exit, his friend who won the bet asks Sunil to pay the money. Sunil replies to him - Nuvvu kadupuki annam tintunnava leka biryani tintunnava? Oka pakka friend out ayyi badha padutunte .. dabbu adugutaava? Sunil then meets the disappointed Tarun and says - Nuvvu velli Sachin laaga aadi vastav anukunte .. sachchinodi lagaa out aipoyi vastava?.

The unit also canned few more shots that are dealt with cricket on that day.

Interview - Tarun

Tell us about the character you are playing?

I am playing the character called Rishi. This guy is a very freaked out guy. He is like the prince in college. Everybody just listens to him. Even guys like Sunil, who usually fool around, are not supposed to crack jokes when Rishi is around. Rishi is the one who does everything.

When you pass through the traffic and stop at signal lights, you presume that red means stop and green means go. Rishi is one kind of guy who questions what yellow means? Rishi starts thinking from a certain point where others would have stopped by then. He teases Anjali (heroine) and falls in love with her and then some problem arises.

What makes Anjali fall in love with Rishi?

I can't reveal that stuff. But there are a couple of touching scenes where Rishi wins the heart of Anjali. You should watch it on the big screen.

You have debuted as a hero with Nuvve Kavali and now you are working with the same team again for Nuvve Nuvve. Do you see any change in you as an actor?

I was a new comer when I acted in Nuvve Kavali. I had lots of fun even though it was my first film. I am a matured actor now as Nuvve Nuvve is my seventh film.

Interview - Sravanthi Ravi Kishore

Tell us how you picked Trivikram as the director for this film

When we started Nuvve Kavali, Vijaya Bhaskar suggested that we should have Trivikram as dialogue writer. But I was planning to have one more dialogue writer so that there won't be any risk. After looking at the dialogues written for a couple of scenes by Trivikram, I decided that he is the dialogue writer for 'Nuvve Kavali'. And rest is the history.

During that time, Trivikram narrated this storyline and I told him that I would be producing that story in the direction of Trivikram whenever he is ready for it.

Tell us about the storyline

We cannot reveal the storyline. But it's a very sensitive one and deals with love.

Tell us about your experience in making this film

We all worked like a closely knitted family. What is more important than the success of the film is the pleasure of giving our best to any film that we make. Entire team has delivered their best.

Koti has given excellent music for this film. Hari Anumolu is my favorite cameraman and the most dedicated technician. Shriya is the best thing that has happened to this film. Tarun delivered a splendid job. He is a born artist. I will give 5 stars for Trivikram's script for this film. Lets see how many marks he would get in direction department. I am proud that all my technicians and artists have passion for movies. Money might be important. But it never over takes the passion we have towards anything.

Tell us how movie making has changed over a period of time

It's becoming more and more challenging to make movies these days. For every hour, there is a new problem for the producer to solve. Most of the time is spent on crisis management.

I have produced many movies so far. When you look back and retrospect your career, you should not feel ashamed about any movie you have made. I am ashamed of only one movie - Rowdy Mogudu. Other than that film I have done all good films irrespective of their commercial outcome.

Tell us about your future films

I would be doing the Telugu remake of Bollywood film Tum Bin [Priyanshu Chatterjee, Himanshu Mallik, Rakesh Bapat, Sandali Sinha] very soon. Our team of Trivikram - Vijay Bhaskar - Koti would be doing a film with NTR that's going to start January 2003. I am also going to present a film that is going to be produced by Anil in the direction of E Sathi Babu with Srikanth as hero.

Interview - Shriya

Tell us about the character you play in this film

Name of my character in this film is 'Anjali'. She is very bubbly. She is happy and satisfied with whatever she has. She is very close to her father. Her father can do anything for her. The film is all about how she falls in love with this guy - Tarun. The director gave strict instructions not to reveal the story to you. I am helpless (giggles) [click here for full interview]


Sunil and Trivikram are good at diverting the topic and shy away from revealing anything about the film. The entire unit calls Tarun as 'Uncle' and Shriya as 'Aunty' - this is just to give a counter attack these two kids, who call all the people in unit as uncles. The entire unit has very warmth and affectionate feelings towards each other working like a good team and living like a true family. thanks and wishes the entire cast and crew of Nuvve Nuvve a very good luck for their movie.
