The mounting of the film Police Story Part II on the Varamahalakshmi day had seen all those who worked for first part of Police Story merrily spending time at Kanteerava studio. The protagonist of the Police Story Saikumar disclosed that one Police Story has been the credit card for him for the last 10 years and he wished the second part would be a credit card for coming 20 years. His aspiration is good. But in the last 10 years all the team members have spread out. Does he want now that separation for 20 years now is the question asked by a police constable who over heard Saikumar speaking.
Saikumar, J.G.Krishna, S. S. David, Thriller Manju, Gurumurthy, Rockline Venkatesh, Shobaraj, Saikumar's father who played the chief minister role were seen at the muhurut function. The veterans who acted in the first part Lokanath and Girija Lokesh are also playing important roles in this sequel.
What is God sent gift is that none of the stars and technicians of the Police Story made in 1996 have kicked their bucket in 10 years.
Made in shoestring budget of Rs.22 lakhs the part I earned Rs.1.80 crore for the producer team. Police Story was termed as the commercial pattern of Ardh Sathya. In Telugu, Tamil and Hindi the film was dubbed. Now it requires more than Rs.2 crores for shaping up the film to the theatres now.
The black tiger in the last scene of the Police Story played by Shobaraj was sentenced to death. He escapes from the prison is the take off of the film. The fighters from Hongkong are roped in for this film for two mind blowing stunt sequences says Thriller Manju who has written the screenplay and also direct the film.
