Sriram/Srikanth and Kushee Ravi's much-anticipated film "Pindam," directed by the emerging talent Saikiran Daida, is set to hit the screens on December 15, 2023. The film has garnered significant attention on social media, with the teaser receiving an overwhelming response, adding to the anticipation surrounding its release.

The star-studded cast includes Easwari Rao, Srinivas Avasarala, Ravi Varma, Manik Reddy, Baby Chaitra, Baby Ieisha, Vijayalakshmi, and Srilatha, all playing pivotal roles. The script, a collaborative effort by Saikiran Daida, Kavi Siddhartha, and Toby Osborne, promises a unique cinematic experience. Krishna Saurabh Surampalli's musical compositions, Satish Manoharan's cinematography, and Sirish Prasad's editing contribute to the film's overall appeal.

In a recent media interaction, producer Yeshwanth Daggumati shed light on the journey of bringing "Pindam" to life. Yeshwanth, who owns a chain of software companies in the USA, shared his transition from IT to filmmaking, recounting the unexpected discovery of the captivating story of "Pindam" that led him to alter his initial plans.

Originally planning a crime comedy with actor Siddu Jonnalagadda, the project faced setbacks due to the pandemic, prompting a shift to the multi-genre film "Pindam," which incorporates elements of horror spanning different timelines. Yeshwanth emphasized the film's unique approach to horror, with a constant stream of frightening scenes from the beginning.

Regarding the choice of Sriram as the protagonist, Yeshwanth explained that Sriram's unfamiliarity to Telugu audiences and the director's previous success with the Hollywood film 'Smoke' influenced the decision. Yeshwanth also addressed the challenges faced during the production, expressing gratitude for his dedicated support team.

Discussing the film's title, "Pindam," Yeshwanth underscored the desire to establish their production with a realistic touch, emphasizing a commitment to the industry beyond a one-time venture.

Responding to the query on the challenges faced by NRI producers, Yeshwanth acknowledged the difficulties but credited his robust support team, highlighting the collaborative spirit that propelled the project forward.

Addressing concerns about releasing a film as a newcomer, Yeshwanth acknowledged initial apprehensions but expressed confidence after positive responses to the trailer. He shared that distributors have shown interest, ensuring a favorable release, with digital platforms discussions nearing finalization.

In recounting practical challenges, Yeshwanth detailed a challenging shoot in a remote location, highlighting the dedication of the cast and crew despite unforeseen incidents. Despite the hurdles faced, the team persevered and successfully completed the shoot, further underscoring their commitment to delivering "Pindam" to the audience.
