Director Raaja Kiran of Geethanjali and Tripura fame is back with a thriller - Viswamitra. This movie, starring Prema Katha Chitram fame Nanditha Raj and Kollywood star Prasanna (actress Sneha's husband) in the lead, also has Ashutosh Rana, Vidyullekha Raman and Satyam Rajesh as part of the cast! This movie, produced by S Rajinikanth and Madhavi Addanki under the RK Cinema and Madhuram Movie Kreations banners, has music by Anup Rubens, cinematography by Anil Bhandari and editing by Upendra. Raaja Kiran has himself penned the story and screenplay, while Jakkanna director Akella Vamshi Krishna has written the dialogues.
Right from the time the movie was announced, Viswamitra has been generating a lot of buzz and when the movie's first poster was released, it generated a lot of curiosity. Deviating from regular posters, Viswamitra's poster depicted a crime scene, without the faces of any of the cast members. This psychological thriller's trailer was released recently and has garnered a lot of positive reviews. This suspense loaded trailer shows Prasanna as a cop, Ashutosh Rana in an eccentric role and Nanditha Raj displaying a variety of emotions with fear being the most prominent one. The tagline which underlines the trailer - Fear has a New Face, seems to be the premise on which the whole movie has been shot!
Talking about the movie, director Raaja Kiran said, "The film will be entertaining and curiosity-generating right from the first frame. We have made this film based on real-life incidents which happened in Switzerland and America." The makers have announced that Viswamitra will be hitting screens on March 21st, right in time to capitalise on the summer vacations.
