In a recent interview, the director revealed, "The entire subject revolves around the events that occur in a time-frame 16 days, so we chose to keep the title as 16 days. Charmi's screen name is Angel; her role is unique in characterisation and one of the best that Charmi has portrayed in her career till date. The film had several thrilling scenes."
Charmi has a hot scene, a very sweet romantic kiss with the hero, which has attracted mixed reviews. It is also rumoured that she agreed to the liplock only after getting the appropriate extra remuneration.
Arvind, who had worked as Mani Ratnam's assistant director, will be introduced as hero to the Telugu film industry. Stalwarts like Manorama, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Jayaprakash Reddy, Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam and Ramjagan will provide superb supporting performances.
Sukumar is the cinematographer, Dharan is the composer, Bhaskarabhatla is the lyricist and Nivas has penned the dialogues. Story, screenplay and direction are by Prabhu Solomon.
