Ramarao on Duty is ready for release this Friday. On this occasion, we met with the director Sarath Mandava for a brief chat. Here is the transcript.
Tell us about the film?
The film is about a civil officer and how he goes about finding a missing case in his duty. The film is a period investigative thriller with all the proper mass elements and loads of drama.
About Ravi Teja’s role?
He will be seen as a government official in this film. You might have never seen him in such a role so far in his career. The story and his character are quite unique and the narration will be presented with a gripping screenplay.
Why did you choose Venu Tottempudi for this film?
He plays a cop in this film. When I wrote this character, I wanted an unusual actor to do it. That was the moment I watched some of his old videos which went viral on social media. I met him and he liked the story and came on board for his comeback.
About the heroine Rajisha Vijayan?
I wanted a very new face for this role and approached her. She did not okay the project right away. I met her again and narrated the script in detail and then she came on board and did a wonderful job.
About the music of the film?
I loved Sam CS music in Khaidi and other Tamil films. Even Ravi Teja wanted him to do this project. He has given a solid score and his BGM will be a big attraction for the film.
What made you make comments against reviews?
That was my personal opinion. I am game for reviews and have learned so much from them. But I don’t like the reviews which come up even before the film ends. The short reviews on social media is the one I do not like. I feel that the audience should watch the film enjoy it and go home and speak about it.
As of now, my entire concentration is on this film. I am waiting eagerly for the release and its outcome. Once the release happens, I will think about other projects.
