Chal Mohan Ranga starring Nithiin and Megha Akash will be hitting screens tomorrow, April 5th, 2018 worldwide and is an exciting project because the story is penned down by Trivikram. Chal Mohan Ranga is being produced by Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram jointly while it is being presented by Nithiin owned Shreshta Movies. Directed by Krishna Chaitanya, Chal Mohan Ranga is said to be a breezy romantic story in which the lead actors fall in love, part ways and unite again. Krishna Chaitanya made his debut as a director with Naara Rohit starrer Rowdy fellow in 2014 and is now back with Chal Mohan Ranga. Speaking about the gap he took, Krishna Chaitanya says that he technically took only two years but because of shooting delays, the film is releasing now.
“My first directorial Rowdy Fellow was released in November 2014. Two years later, I started working on my second film Chal Mohana Ranga on November 16, 2016. Trivikram and I discussed the story of CMR and worked on the screenplay for six months. Once everything is locked, we started the shooting before he moved to Agnyaathavaasi. That way, I took a gap of two years but technically speaking, as far as the release date is concerned, I took a break from the direction for four years,” Krishna Chaitanya told New Indian Express.
The lyricist turned director further adds that the film is a breezy romantic story and the narrative is what will make the difference. “Most love stories are similar to identical situations but the way the narrative unfolds makes the difference here. The film has a compelling narrative with memorable and relatable characters. Megha Akash will be seen as a half-Telugu and half-Tamil girl Megha Subrahmanyam, while Nithiin plays Mohana Ranga, who aspires to leave for the US for better prospects. It’s a proper Telugu film with a moderate cross-culture drama in the second hour,” he further adds.
Speaking about working under in Pawan Kalyan’s direction, KC says there was absolute freedom while shooting and no pressure at all. “Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram gave me complete freedom as a director and I tried to balance all the factors at work. Before he started Agnyaathavaasi’s shoot, Pawan Kalyan listened to the songs and his favourite is very very sad. He told me that he felt the same vibe for Tholi Prema which had songs inline with the story. After completing the abroad schedule, he asked if I’m satisfied with the output or do I feel the need to re-shoot any portion of the film? If the producer is so caring and concerned, then what else do you want as a director?,” he added.
