The first poster of Allari Naresh’s ‘Naandhi’ showcased him in a naked avatar and built some good buzz and anticipation. Today, the teaser of the film was released by the makers and it depicts that ‘Naandhi’ is unlike any of Naresh’s previous films.
The teaser opens with Harish Shankar’s voice-over regarding the number of prisons in India and the surprisingly high number of undertrial prisoners who are serving jail time.
Naresh is seen as an undertrial prisoner who tries to escape from the prison but gets caught and is brutally abused by the police. The proceedings suggest that Naresh is an innocent person who goes through a distressful journey and is wrongfully put in prison.
The set-up is very realistic and the atrocities which usually occur in jails are showcased in the teaser. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar is seen as a lawyer while Priyadarshi and Praveen are seen as Naresh’s pals who try to help him.
Background score is apt and so is the cinematography.
This is the first time Naresh is playing such an intense character in his career and it does offer a new feel. The premise of the film looks promising.
Naandhi is directed by Vijay Kanakamedala, and produced by Satish Vegesna under SV2 Entertainment banner. Sri Charan Pakala is composing the tunes and Sid is handling cinematography.
