Director Prashanth Reddy Interview

Bhaje Vaayu Vegam will be so engaging that the audience will not be able to look away  Director Prashanth Reddy

Presented by the prestigious production company UV Creations, the movie Bhaje Vaayu Vegam, starring Kartikeya Gummakonda, is produced under the banner of UV Concepts. Iswarya Menon is playing the heroine, while Rahul Tyson of Happy Days fame plays a pivotal role. Director Prashant Reddy is making this film, an emotional action thriller, with Ajay Kumar Raju P. acting as coproducer. Bhaje Vaayu Vegam is set for a worldwide grand theatrical release on the 31st of this month. On this occasion, director Prashant Reddy shared some highlights in a recent interview.

I worked in the direction department for the movie Run Raja Run. After that, I continued with Saaho. Before COVID, this subject was approved. Kartikeya was then busy with 90ML and Chaavu Kaburu Challaga. A year and a half was wasted due to COVID. After starting the shooting of Bhaje Vaayu Vegam and completing 70 percent, Kartikeya went to shoot Bedurulanka 2012. After finishing that, we completed our Bhaje Vaayu Vegam.

According to the story of Bhaje Vaayu Vegam, the first half needs a performer, and heroism should be elevated in the second half. Karthikeya seems to be the best option for me. He performs well and has a heros personality. This is the reason for choosing Karthikeya. Also, the heroine is a traditional girl who grows up in a middleclass locality. If you look at Iswarya Menons profile, you will see pictures in halfsari and saree, making her the right choice for this character in the movie.

There are reasons for the delay of Bhaje Vaayu Vegam. Due to some technical problems, the edited version lost footage, and the editing took three more months. We took extra time for quality in postproduction. It would have been pressuring for the first movie to be delayed for some time.

Fathers sentiment is revealed in the trailer, but the concept of father sentiment is timeless. At the end of the trailer, Rahul tells Karthikeya that his father is not his father, and some have commented that the story is familiar. However, the trailer shows that there will be many variations in the story seen in theaters. The trailer does not show any twists as the story should not be revealed. Whether the hero has achieved his goal as a cricketer is not hinted at anywhere in the trailer. Rahuls dialogue in the trailer actually comes at the beginning of the movie. We are all very confident about the film.

The hero has a brother character in the story, a very key role. It is a herolike character after the hero. While thinking about who to cast for this role, UV suggested Rahul Tyson. He had taken a gap in between. I also felt that Karthikeyas brother would be fresh. Thats how Rahul came into the movie.

We all come from town to town to achieve something. We will lose some here and there in order to come. We will earn some. Finally, we see whether our goal is reached or not. There are those who do not achieve what they want. The hero comes to the city with a goal like that. At the time he is trying to achieve his goal, other problems surround him. He leaves his goal and goes to solve them. The audience feels that his goal is different.

Ours is Medak district. Rajamoulis Sye movie was shot in our village. From that time, I also had a desire to enter the industry. Now, I am not qualified enough to say that I came to the industry after seeing Rajamouli. After the release of the movie, if you all like it, tell me his name.

In the second half of the movie, there will be a chaselike screenplay. It is believed that you will not look at your phone in the second half. So gripping. We could give a title like Speed to our movie, but because of the English title, we named it Bhaje Vayu Velya. UV liked it, so we registered it immediately. Director Anil, who is going to make a film with Akhil in UV, saw this film and suggested the title.

Director Sujeeth likes editing. After seeing the movie Bhaje Vaayu Vegam, he liked it and gave an interview to our team. Usually, Sujeeth doesnt do interviews. In that interview, Sujeeths words about Chiranjeevi, NTR, and Pawan Kalyans OG are going viral. All their fans are thanking me. We request these fans to come to the theaters and watch our movie Bhaje Vaayu Vegam.

Special care has been taken for the BGM of this movie. We allocated about three months for the background score. Kapil, a newcomer, gave the BGM. Radhan sang. I didnt do BGM with Radhan because if he was in Chennai, I wouldnt have time to go back and forth. There will not be a single song in the second half. The screenplay is racy. If the story goes at a fast pace, the audience will not want a song to be there. Moreover, it is considered a speed breaker.

Audiences have come into the trend of watching reels. Even if they get bored for a moment, they will change the reel. In such a time, my idea is to engage the audience without giving a small gap. We followed this approach in the movie Bhaje Vaayu Vegam. We call him a hero, so I think a hero should have a bigger goal. The audience will connect with the hero. They should have a hero character to inspire them.

You can learn a thousand times more by directing a movie than what you learn as an assistant director. A film can be improved in several stages. No other creative job has this opportunity.

Hero characters are very common in Rajamoulis movies. But they face unusual problems. I think the hero should be like that in my film too. The audience comes to the cinema with many problems, and I think we should entertain them for a while without irritating them in the theater.

I have some scripts at the moment. I will announce my new movie after the release of the Bhaje Vaayu Vegam movie.
