Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja’s Ravanasura is all set to hit the big screens on 7th April. Directed by Sudheer Varma, the action thriller is produced by Abhishek Nama and Ravi Teja under Abhishek Pictures and RT Teamworks. Harshavardhan Rameshwar and Bheems Ceciroleo scored the tunes. Sushanth, Sriram, Anu Emmanuel, Megha Akash, Faria Abdullah, Daksha Nagarkar, Poojitha Ponnada, Rao Ramesh, Murali Sharma, and Sampath Raj played vital roles. Ahead of its release, we had a brief interaction with the film director, and here is the transcript.
About not revealing much about the film’s plot
Ravanasura has got many thrills and shocking elements. You won’t get thrilled or excited while watching the film if we reveal something. Hence we are holding the content. Once the morning show gets completed, we can discuss it in detail. We intend not to let the thrill elements come out until the release.
In films like Pushpa and KGF, heroes played grey-shaded roles. Can we say Ravanasura will be in this manner?
Grey-shaded roles are not new. If we take Ram Gopal Varma’s Antham, the hero’s character is grey-shaded. In Satya JD Chakravarthy’s character is grey-shaded. Actually, the police character role in Satya is the hero. But we like JD Chakravarthy more in it. People will love when heroes play grey characters.
As you don’t want to reveal much about the film, the hype is lower. What’s your take on this?
I want a viewer to get into the movie hall without having any knowledge about the movie’s plot and to get thrilled. Irrespective of the amount of publicity we do, if a film is good, it will run well and vice versa. The audience’s reaction is what matters to me.
Will there be a sequel to Ravanasura?
That will be decided after seeing the audience’s reaction. If everything goes well, we might go ahead. There is scope for a sequel in the story. There will be an end to this part’s story, though.
Is there any reason for you to direct more thrillers?
I am getting more thriller genre stories. I want the proceedings of a film to keep going based on a crime. I want a holding point in my films. Audiences should get that interest as to what happens next in the movie.
Ravi Teja Garu has scored back-to-back hits. Do you feel this as pressure for Ravanasura?
Had Ravanasura been released after Ramarao on Duty, I would have had the same tension that I am facing right now. As Khiladi and Ramarao On Duty were flops, I would have been under pressure to deliver a hit to Ravi Teja Garu. Now that Ravi Teja Garu scored back-to-back hits, I need to continue the streak. Either way, stress will be present.
