A Game-Changer In Telugu Cinema?

Although it has a funky title guaranteed to draw one’s attention, C/O Kancharapalem started receiving major publicity once it as announced that Suresh Babu Daggubati was releasing the film.

Incidentally, it is the first Indian film to be screened at the New York Film Festival. Debutant director Venkatesh Maha shot the film entirely in Kancharapalem area of Vizag and the local populace has acted the lead actors.

Apparently, at every screening organised for celebrities of T-town, the film received a standing ovation. But here’s the thing! Suresh Babu has reportedly picked up the rights to the entire movie for a mere Rs 55 lakh! That’s right, Rs 55 lakh!

Maybe, the makers get a cut in profits too. Anyway, they have no cause for complaint as Suresh Babu will give it a much wider release than would have been possible if they had released the film on their own.
