One movie that had caught the attention of many in the industry, despite being a small flick is Care of Kancherpalem. Directed by debutant maha Venkatesh and starring newcomers the movie has been presented by Rana Daggubati. here's team AP Herald's exclusive first on the net care of Kancherpalem review.
Set in the conservative village of Kancharapalem the movie speaks various topics like the love story of a 50-year-old bachelor, a youngster loving a prostitute, and multiple subplots. An inter-caste love story and a heart-melting tale of a sculptor are also presented, and how all the subplots end is what care of Kancherpalem is all about.
Producer Praveena plays a prostitute and she's impressive, while Subba Rao and Radha Bessy try to evoke emotions. The rest of the cast including Nithya Sri Guru, Karthik Ratnam, Vijaya Praveena is adequate. The characters are so real and at least every one of us would've come through one such character in our lives. The movie also has love, comedy, and deals with sensitive issues like caste system and honor killing. Many characters even show the harsh realities which we come across every day.
Praveena Paruchuru who is the Producer of the movie has played the role of a prostitute called Saleema in this movie and she has done a commendable job. The way her story is narrated will definitely leave you teary-eyed. And on the flip side, as the actors are new, they couldn't emote in tragic scenes.
Music by Sweekar Agasthi is heart melting while cinematography by Varun and Aditya captures the essence of village life beautifully and naturally. Editing by Ravi Teja is taut. The movie is shot in sync sound and that gives the movie an extra edge. Definitely, the music will grow on us and the BGM is top-notch. Even a small mood of the movie is elevated to a whole new level.
Editing is crisp and the movie doesn't have any hush-hush cuts. And for those who don't know around 80 people are real villagers who have acted as junior artists in the movie. The makers have extracted lovely performances from them. The locations are also rustic and wonderful. Hats off to Rana Daggubati for backing a small movie like this as it has no star value. If such good movies get a solid backup, Telugu films will be reaching higher levels.
Maha Venkatesh has delivered a content driven movie on debut and his unconventional film is easily one of the bests in recent times with its unique way of unravelling each subplot and all of them are appealing. Kudos to Maha Venkatesh for casting the right people and getting the village authenticity right and also touching the audience. Rana Daggubati should be appreciated for his guts to deliver this product.
