The much-anticipated pan-Indian female-oriented thriller Mangalavaaram, starring Payal Rajput in the lead role, is set to hit screens tomorrow. Ajay Bhupathi is the director of this movie, which has paid premiere shows tonight across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Ahead of the movie’s release, the makers have released the making video, where the core team expresses astonishment about the efforts put in to craft this visually pleasing product. Payal Rajput praises Ajay Bhupathi as a visionary filmmaker with infectious passion. She mentions, “His writing made me experience goosebumps at least four to five times while listening to the script.” She also appreciates the enchanting work of cinematographer Dasaradhi Sivendra.

Ajay Bhupathi consistently described the movie as a dark, rural, rustic mystery thriller, says, “This genre has largely remained unexplored in recent times. The behavior of the artists occasionally bewildered outsiders. We chose original locations and did extensive night shoots. On top of that, the scorching summer and risky shots amid fires and in water made it all the more daring. Artists were tasked with running amidst flames, and the cameras and the cameraman had to submerge for some underwater sequences. All of these efforts were undertaken to deliver a next-level experience for the audience.”

Chaitanya Krishna expresses gratitude, saying, “I should thank my producers and the director for this movie.” The actor plays a domineering role in the film. Ravindra Vijay comments, “The music is brilliant. Ajaneesh B Loknath of ‘Kantara’ gave me goosebumps.” Ajay Ghosh reveals that the film addresses a social issue.

The movie also features Nandita Swetha, Divya Pillai, Azmal, Ravindra Vijay, Shravan Reddy, Srithej, and others in key roles. Mangalavaaram is produced by Creative Works and Mudhra Media Works, with Ajaneesh Loknath as the composer.
