Atharvaa's next to feature a single-shot action sequence
The yet-to-be-titled film deals with the illegal trade that happens on the dark web, and also features a father-son story in the middle of that
We had earlier reported that Atharvaa is joining hands with his 100 director Sam Anton for an action film. The latest update is that, on Tuesday, the team filmed a single-shot 2-minute-50-second-long sequence.
Speaking about the scene, director Sam Anton says, "This is an action sequence in which Atharvaa's character has a mission to accomplish in a few minutes and we decided to do it in a single-shot. The scene features Atharvaa and about 22 fighters. We shot the scene at an under-construction eight-story building in Hyderabad using a mix of drone and GoPro cameras." Sam adds that the team had to rehearse the scene for a couple of days before filming. "In a fight scene, we usually have multiple cuts to enhance the impact of the action. To show the momentum on screen, we need close-up shots and high-speed shots. So, to bring that effect and momentum without any cuts was quite challenging."
The yet-to-be-titled film deals with the illegal trade that happens on the dark web, and also features a father-son story in the middle of that. It stars Tanya Ravichandran as the female lead, with features a large cast that includes Rahul Dev Shetty, Arun Pandian, Chinni Jayanth, Munishkanth, Aranthangi Nisha, Azhagam Perumal, Krishna, and Vinodhini.
Bankrolled by Shruthi Nallappa under Pramod Films, the film will have music by Ghibran and editing by Ruben. Stunt choreography is handled by Dhilip Subbarayan, while the cinematography is being done by Krishnan Vasant, who was also the cinematographer for all four previous films of the director.
