Music director R P Patnaik is returning to action genre with yet another title Manalo Okkadu under his own direction. The film is slated to release on November 4 this year.
The movie features Nuvu Nenu fame actor Anita Hassanandani opposite Patnaik. The music for her debut film was composed by Patnaik.
Patnaik — who has earlier directed Tulsi Dalam, Broker and Friends Book — will be playing a lecturer and Anita will be portraying the role of his wife in Manalo Okkadu.
“The movie is based on some true incidents. In this movie, I will be playing a powerful role as a teacher, Krishna Moorthy. Dialogue king Sai Kumar’s role will be extraordinary in this movie. The first copy of the movie is ready and after the censor hurdles are cleared, we are planning to release the movie on November 4,” said R P Patnaik, who also rendered audio for this film.
The film has roped in Sai Kumar, Nasser, Tanikella Bharani, Jayaprakash Reddy, Srimukhi, Raghubabu, Banjerjee, Gollapudi Maruthirao, Raja Ravindra and Duvvasi Mohan playing crucial roles.
“Manalo Okkadu looks at media and its influence on the society. The trailer and audio got great reception too. RP Patnaik’s Broker was a big hit and this film will be a bigger hit than that,” said producer Jagan Mohan.
The shooting of the movie was wrapped up in June itself and the post-production works were underway. While cinematography and film editing are being handled by SJ Siddharth and Uddhav, the dialogues of the movie are by Tirumal Nag.
