Jatayu, a film featuring character actor-turned-hero Raj, will be released across the state this Friday. Raj, who made his debut as a full-time hero through Sanchari two years ago, has directed Jatayu.
The film has two heroines – Surabhi and Roopashree – both are new faces. The star cast includes Avinash, Bullet Prakash, Petrol Prasanna, and Karun Ramesh. The movie is produced by Raj’s brother Prabhakar, who has produced several Telugu projects.
Raj shot to limelight through Sanchari because of the hit song sung by Sonu Nigam. The song ended among the top 10 in 2011. Arjun Janya had composed the music for Sanchari. However, for Jatayu, Vinaya Chandra has composed the music.
As many as 4 choreographers – Harsha, Kalai, Murali and Ramu – have choreographed the songs. In all, there are 5 songs in the movie.
While Raj has written the story, B Suresh has written the dialogue. A love story set in a forest, the movie is said to have adopted a revolutionary theme.
The movie was shot at a single location, as the plot unveils in the same spot involving the star cast. The movie has five dare-devilry stunt sequences, which have been directed by Thriller Manju and Mass Mada.
