Real Star Upendra's Kalpana 2 has been confirmed for release, on July 15 throughout the state. R Ananthraj has directed the horror flick, which is the remake of Telugu/Tamil blockbuster Kanchana 2.
The music of the movie was released last month, and songs have received decent response. The makers are yet to start promoting the movie, songs may reach the next level then.
The teaser/trailer of the movie is yet to be released. As per the sources, a teaser may be released one week ahead of the film's release to up the ante for the movie. Also, a couple of video songs are expected to be released.
Priyamani and Avantika Shetty of Rangitaranga fame are the heroines in the movie. Nithya Menen and Tapsee had played the roles in the original. Both the characters have scope to perform and for sure both Priyamani and Avantika would excel in the roles given to them.
Both story and screenplay have been taken from the original, except for the minor changes which have been done by director R Ananthraj. Dr. KM Rajendra is producing the movie under Rajendra Movies and this is his comeback movie as a producer.
Kalpana was released without much buzz but the Uppi and Saikumar factor made sure that openings were huge. Trade pundits are expecting the same magic to repeat for Kalpana 2, as the buzz or expectations are very low, as of now.
M R Seenu is the cinematographer and Jo Ni Harsha is the editor. Ramu has choreographed the songs. The makers are planning to release the movie on their own throughout the state in 200 odd theaters.
