About How Dhookudu Film Started

DHOOKUDU work actually started in december 2009.
Sreenu Vaitla ji confirmed the project with 14 reels entertainment.
Then i along with my friends started working on several lines.
My friends Sreenivas Tagore(we call him toopran sreenivas),writer Sreedhar Seepana and Jonathan(he is an ardent fan of modern cinema and now directing Prayanikudu film) and i started discussing several concepts.

I got an idea to work on an action love story.My feeling is Mahesh Babu never did a complete action love story.
Okkadu in a way is an action love story without a proper focus on love story.

Then i immediately got few ideas on that and started discussing with friends.We planned a personal trip discussing this to Goa.I took the attached photograph there only.We developed Hilarious scenes with lots of action and romance.

Then we narrated our initial version to Sreenu Vaitla garu.
They felt happy and we are on the job.

Mean While NAMO VENKATESA movie released and it got very good 1st week response and then fared reasonably well.
After Dhee and Ready,people are expecting something else but we made this film in the same genre.At that time many pictures came in these lines and people felt bit monotony.So I and Sreenu garu started discussing whether we should continue the same entertaining comedies or to change our pattern entirely.Some where some one has to take an U turn.And one has to know where to stop.Stakes and expectations are raising high for every movie.Trends are also changing every day.We have to take care in every aspect of film making for every film and every year.Even a small mistake costs a lot.After Andharivaadu he seriously took care of his films and he tried to maintain his mark for every film upto Namo Venkatesa.He is happy to introduce his long time friends Gopichand Achanta,Ram Achanta and Anil Sunkara with Namo Venkatesa film.They are also very grateful to sreenu vaitla garu and happy with the film.So the relationship continued with Mahesh Babu project also.Producers told Sreenu Vaitla garu not to compromise on Mahesh Babu film.They even told us that they can risk to any extent in budget wise if the subject is good.They want to do a memorable project.

At this point of time Sreenu Vaitla garu want to do something different and he want to show Mahesh Babu in an epic movie.

He has one period subject in mind.And he narrated that line to me.I liked the concept but then i and our producers started thinking practically.It need proper planning and time to execute.Already Mahesh Babu film is getting delayed and his audience want to see him in more movies.I started buying books and watching epic movies to develop the line.

    I seriously wish you stick to a genre instead of mixing love story, action & other emotions in the story! I think the reason Okkadu was a such a hit is because it is an action movie. Plain and simple. It is not an action movie with a dose of family and romance and sentiment!

    My 2cents!
    Really vexed about the kind of stories that come in telugu cinema! You have the power to change it. So please please try towards it.

    Journey into the Heart of a Movie Writer, I never or hardly ever read such long writeups but could not stop myself from reading all the blogs in the series again and again and infact this is the 3rd time in a week. it’s so gripping like the climax of the movie. That is why Gopi is a Successfull Writer. Hail to the Master Writer.
