We have witnessed 'Naa Video Diary'- Confessions of the film maker, the boldest movie ever made in the history of 75-year old-Telugu film industry.
How a film maker goes bold and uses his Freedom of Expression completely? How a film maker used filthiest language in the film to make it natural? What is the meaning of being non-hypocritical? How are the things moving in Film industry? We can understand everything watching this mind-blowing revolutionary film.
Well, it was made by Aneesh, the close pal of Sekhar Kammula. Kamal Kamaraj (paired up with Neetu Chandra in Godavari) acted in the film. It's the film that was made on the 'confessions of a film maker'.
An aspiring director spends 10 years of time in film industry struggling to find a chance. But he finds nothing. He wants to commit suicide. Then out of frustration he makes a film of his own by asking his friend to shoot him for 10 days naturally. All that he speaks will be recorded in that.
The aspiring director says many things about film industry and its celebrities.
Here are a few snippets out of his speech in unedited mode.
"What's this film industry? People come here with high aspirations imagining many things and start staying in Krishna Nagar.
"Who are these Babus? Were does this word come from? Always the directors who work with these so-called babus enquire, 'Babu Garu lecharaa"", etc etc. What do these Babus do? We know a babu who feels he is a great actor. He knows no acting other than shouting 'hehe he ..oho oho ho' (the name of this hero is not used directly)"
"Do you know why Sunil, Venu Madhav and all call heroes anna, babai and all? That's for security. If they find no films in future they can rely on these babais and annas to put them in their films on obligation. It's a hypocritical field".
"Some heroes say that there is acting in their blood. If there is acting in blood, what would be there in uchcha?"
A scene was shown this way: Beside the hoarding of Chiranjeevi's Charitable Trust, a placard is placed mentioned, "Open Your Eyes For Better Movies". That is the satire thrown on Chiranjeevi.
He hasn't spared any hero in this 95 minute film.
The film was screened last night (12th May) in Prasad's labs to which Tammareddy Bharadwaja, Gunnam Gangaraju, R Narayana Murthy, IMAX Prasad, Madhura Entertainment Sridhar, Sekhar Kammula and many journalists had made their presence.
Aneesh said that it is the first and last show in theater.
He also said that he is not going to release this film outside as the censor would cut the film to 9 minutes if attempted doing so.
A young female journalist asked, "Aneesh! It would had been better had you cut down the dialogues with words like gudda and sallu". (Yes! The journalist too asked boldly literally uttering the words loudly)
Gunnam Gangaraju also questioned the same.
Aneesh said that he wanted to showcase the film naturally without any filter.
Aneesh said that he is going to send that to censor in USA and release there in the form of DVDs. The full-version of the film also discussed about castiesm in film industry it seems.
The film was made in 5 days (it was made in 28 days! this writer didnt check facts with me) and made the audiences sit attentive to every second of it. Aneesh says that he plans to sell internet rights of this film.
