Anand Deverakonda's Pushpaka Vimanam is based on real-life stories

Presented by Vijay Deverakonda, the comedy-thriller marks the feature debut of short filmmaker Damodara

Published: 01st March 2021

Actor Anand Deverakonda has teamed up with debutant director Damodara for a comedy-thriller titled Pushpaka Vimanam.

"The film centres on the theme of modern marriages and also offers an insight into emerging relationship issues. It's a film that everyone can relate to because we come across such tales on a daily basis," says the short filmmaker about his feature debut.

About Anand Deverakonda's character in the film, Damodara explains, "Anand will be seen as Sundar, a government school teacher who moves to Hyderabad from East Godavari district. He is a man of principles, sentiments, and superstitions, and his fixation with these qualities lands him in a tricky situation. Anand is quite apt for the role and he has delivered an exemplary performance."

On what triggered the spark in him to make Pushpaka Vimanam, the debutant director shares, "A few news articles about marriages inspired me to write this story. It is a socially relevant film that promises loads of entertainment laced with an element of thrill."

His film has got nothing to do with the 1987 Kamal Haasan and Amala Akkineni-starrer of the same name, clarifies Damodara. "This is a story about a young man dreaming of leading a happy and successful life after marriage," the newcomer adds.

Starring Geeth Saini and Saanve Megghana as the female leads, Pushpaka Vimanam also features Vijaya Krishna Naresh and Sunil in important roles. "We have wrapped up the shooting recently and the post-production is underway," says Damodara, adding that they are eyeing a June release.
