The latest box office hurricane, “Rangasthalam” has won accolades for not just Ram Charan and director Sukumar but the entire team. The film wouldn’t have been received so well if not for the meticulous work of music director Devi Sri Prasad, cinematographer Rathnavelu and Art director Ramakrishna.
Devi and Rathnavelu are already big names in their respective fields, but its Ramakrishna who hit jackpot with Rangasthalam. His brilliant work first got noticed in “Andala Rakshasi”. Later, he worked for good number of films, but it is Rangasthalam which really introduced the meticulous production designer in him. His work in the Charan starrer looked so authentic that audience wouldn’t believe that most of the film was shot in a set. He perfectly recreated a Godavari village.
Impressed with his work, the talented technician has now been offered three new projects – NTR biopic, Varun Tej’s Space film and the debut film of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s son-in-law, Kalyaan. The first two are challenging projects, and after witnessing Ramakrishna’s work in ‘Rangasthalam’, he can be termed the perfect craftsman for the job. Interestingly, of the three new films, two belong to Mega family only.
Ramakrishna’s immediate release is, Naga Chaitanya’s “Savyasachi”. It is another concept-based film that can bring out the best in him.
