The crime thriller ‘V’ saw a global release recently on Amazon Prime Video and the audience and critics were all praises for a phenomenal storyline and the brilliant on-screen performances. Mohana Krishna Indraganti shares his take on the response the film has been getting and also a little story too.
The director says,”It’s good, it’s pretty exciting, there’s been a little bit of shock, there’s a little bit of surprise, there’s a lot of acceptance and there’s a bit of undue hostility from some. It’s an interesting mix reaction for me but I’m so happy that majority it is so positive and happy. People have wholeheartedly accepted the jump that I have made from my earlier films in the scale, in the detailing and is also a little bit graphic compared to my earlier films the way it depicted violence and all of that but the response has been phenomenal and as Nani pointed out it’s very new to me because I am not very much of a social media person.”
Sharing on the minimal use of social media, the director Mohan further adds,”I usually use social media to post information and see things for updates that’s all. But I didn’t realise I’ve to interact with so many people from different languages, cultures, countries.”
Talking about how the story is receiving love worldwide, he ends by saying, “Yesterday I received a message from Germany, an Indian family is there for a long time but they never get to see a film because of no show. They gathered and watched it in their home theatre and they absolutely loved it.”
He further adds, “When I was trying to be be humble about it they said no no don’t be and the film is really good we’re not saying for the sake of it and I was really touched. Those are the kind of responses we’re getting and its pheonomenal and it’s a new way of interacting where the response is individualised and it’s not always community. Some people are watching it on the laptop and experiencing it like reading a book, and reacting to it. This mixture of individuals, community, semi-community, small groups is a new experience for me and it’s been very rewarding for me.”
Directed and written by Mohana Krishna Indraganti, the film stars ‘Natural Star’ Nani and Sudheer Babu in the lead, along with Nivetha Thomas and Aditi Rao Hydari essaying pivotal roles. The much-awaited Telugu action thriller and the first star-studded Telugu film V is streaming successfully on Amazon Prime Video!
