February 26, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Srihari and Meena play the leads in ‘Dasanna’ directed by DSP. Produced by Natti Kumar under the banner of Visakha Talkies, the film is presented by Natti Lakshmi Karuna. The film’s trailers were launched at a program in Prasad Labs recently.
Speaking on the occasion, producer Natti Kumar says, “I started my career as an office boy and reached this stage with the blessings and encouragement of Dasari Narayana Rao and Dr Srihari. I am glad that today I can produce a film with Srihari as hero. ‘Dasanna’ trailers would be screened across the state from February 25. We will soon launch the audio and are making efforts to release the film on March 12 as Ugadi gift with over 150 prints. We are now releasing 150 trailers too. The subject of the film had several elements like family sentiment, emotions and action and was made on a big budget. The scenes that were shot in the backdrop of huge Siva idol in Kerala would definitely attract the audiences. Dubbing activity was complete and DTS mixing is in progress now.”
Hero Srihari says, “The film has a great subject. It has several emotions and my character had different shades. After ‘Bhadrachalam’ I struggled hard for this film. Srilekha scored melodious tunes to all the songs, besides giving a good re-recording. The entire unit struggled very hard for the shooting in Kerala schedule. The film’s release faced several hiccups and Natti Kumar cleared all of them by risking a lot. For the first time in my career, my film is being released with 150 prints. I thank Natti Kumar for helping me to create a record in this aspect.”
Srilekha says, “I rarely score music for mass subjects. I worked for ‘Sivaji, Parasuram and Dasanna’ films with Srihari as hero. There are very good melodious tunes in this film.”
Posani Krishnamurali and Suman are playing key roles in the movie.
