If introverts are feeling caged during the lockdown, we can only imagine what’s happening inside the wanderlusts and traveller folks. But staying inside our cosy shelters is the need of the hour. All thanks to the Internet we can now have a look at everything that we want with just one click. Of course, you can take a tour on Google Earth. But watching Nikhil Siddharth’s Shankarabharanam will get you the feel of South and North India in one go.
Watch the film here:
Entirely unrelated to the 1980 classic film, this Shankarabharam is a crime-comedy film. Directed by debutante Uday Nandanavanam, it is written by Kona Venkat and is an adaptation of the Hindi movie, Phas Gaya Re Obama. The film went on floors in early 2015 and was first shot in Maharashtra. Later, the story and the crew moved to Bihar and finally, finished in Hyderabad.
The film begins when an NRI youngster comes to India with the plan of selling his ancestral property. However, his plans take an unsolicited turn and he lands in major trouble. Having to deal with mafia and crimelords, he also falls in love with Nanditha Raj’s character. But just when he thinks that things couldn’t get worse, Munni steps into his life. A full-time don lady, Anjali explores a new side and totally shines through it.
