Excerpts from the writer Nagaraj Undramatla Facebook page after Nuvvu Thopu Raa trailer release - https://www.facebook.com/rajundramatla/posts/836154739928043
My friend became a Director
I worked as an assistant writer for the film Ishwar, which was Prabhas's first film starring as a hero. That's where I met my friend Harinath Babu.
After that while I was directing Nammaleni Nijalu for ETV channel I met him again there. Harinath Babu also directed Nammaleni Nijalu for ETV then.
As a dialogue writer, I was working with Director Krishna Vamsi garu for the movie Sasirekha Parinayam and that's where I met Harinath Babu once again as an associate director for the same movie. Harinath used to accurately guess and tell me and the cameraman Bhaskar garu about what kind of lens for a particular scene and also the kind of shot Krishna Vamsi garu would shoot on that day. To our surprise, we noticed that Krishna Vamsi garu would exactly use the same lens and shoot that particular scene on that day as Harinath had already informed us. It is amazing to notice how Harinath would be mirroring Krishna Vamsi garu's mind and implement tasks given to him. That day itself, I realize that Harinath Babu will become a great director.
In the movie, Life is Beautiful, Sudhakar Komakula as Nagaraj was well received by the audiences. For Harinath Babu's debutant direction movie, Nuvvu Thopu Raa, Sudhakar became hero. The movie is going to release soon. Watching the Nuvvu Thopu Raa teaser, I am sure that it will be a big hit.
We can call a movie, a big hit when the audience clap, blow whistles, and the movie breaks collection records and I want all this to happen wholeheartedly for Nuvvu Thopu Raa. My best wishes and all the good luck to my friend Harinath Babu, Hero Sudhakar garu, producers and to all the technicians who worked for the film.
