After watching the film C/o Kancharapalem everyone fell in love with the director Maha Venkatesh who started his journey in Tollywood with Shortfilms which were submitted for various shortfilm festivals. If you are a shortfilm lover i am sure that you might have seen the film “Ooha Lokam” and then no body noticed the director’s name for that. Now after watching the c/o Kancharapalem movie when i searched with the director’s name, i am shocked to see that i have already seen his shortfilms earlier.
The film produced by an Indian-American independent producer Praveena Paruchuri who is a cardio doctor also portrayed a role of Sameena in this film. The unknown fact about the director is when he was at 16, he left the home and did many odd jobs for the survival in Vizag,durinh those days once he was brought to Kancharapalem village by one of his boss and he stayed 9 months there, Maha got to observe Kancharapalem and its people, he developed a bond with his friend’s father, listening to all his stories of childhood which made him to make this film which is touching everyone’s heat.
