Praveen Sattaru's latest directorial venture Chandamama Kathalu, which is set to release in the theatres this Friday, is an anthology film featuring eight short stories. The director says that allocating time for each story and characters in the screenplay was a big challenge for him, but he resolved it by using algebra to distribute equal time to each artist.
In an interview, Praveen Sattaru revealed the challenges that he
faced during the making of Chandamama Kathalu. The
director said, "To allocate equal screen space for the lead
characters, I used algebraic equations to distribute time. The
biggest challenge was distributing equal time for all these actors
and their respective stories."
Praveen Sattaru, who is armed with a degree in Electrical and
Electronics Engineering, added, "It was very important that
audiences should remember what the first story was by the time they
finish watching the last story. To ensure this, I had to equally
distribute time for these stories. This was possible by applying
some algebraic formula."
Chandamama Kathalu is said to be the first anthology film in Telugu. Produced by Chanakya Bhooneti, this much-awaited movie features an ensemble cast of Naresh, Aamani, Lakshmi Manchu, Chaitanya Krishna, Krishnudu and Richa Panai in important roles. Mickey J Meyer has composed music for its soundtracks and background score, while Suresh Ragutu handled the camera work for the film.
