Mega family hero Sai Dharam Tej is pinning all his hopes on his upcoming film because he is going through a rough phase in his career. It is known that this film is directed by love stories specialist Karunakaran. The movie has already entered into final stages of its shoot so, the makers have given the glimpse of the first look in the form of pre-look.
Continuing the trend of giving new news to the first looks and pre looks, the makers named it 'First Sight' and released a poster confirming the release date of First Look. It has been revealed that they are going to release the first look on April 28. When it comes to the first sight, the entire poster has been shown in a black & white except Sai Dharam's guitar and his wristwatch. While the heroine face is in the background, Teju is seen walking towards her.
Apparently, music will be a central element of the film and Malayali composer Gopi Sundar has been roped in as the music director. “It’s a musical film with a plotline that will have both an urban and a rural backdrop. We introduced Gopi Sundar to Tollywood with Malli Malli idi Rani Roju. We are extremely pleased with his work and he has delivered some great tunes for this film as well,” says producer KS Rama Rao, adding, “Karunakaran is a master at preparing beautiful love stories. We’ve worked with him earlier for Vasu (2002) and the music of that film was a chartbuster. And the music is going to be the highlight of this film.”
There are three montage songs in the films. While the makers haven’t finalised on the location for filming the songs, Munnar in Kerala and the US are on their wish list. “We have completed half the shooting and expect to wrap up the film by mid-April,” adds the producer.
Speaking about Sai Dharam Tej with whom he is working for the first time, Rama Rao says, “Sai is a dedicated and sincere actor. Soft-spoken and very easy to work with, he is one of the most talented among the younger heroes.” Anupama Parameswaran is the female lead in the film. Gopi Sundar is the music director. KS Rama Rao is bankrolling the film under Creative Commercials banner. The movie shoot will be wrapped up by the third week of May and they are planning to release the film on June 14.
