Chandra Sekhar Yeleti had to increase the jail sequences in 'Check' due to the lockdown.
Certainly, it takes a long gap to taste success in any field, and the film industry is not an exception, says senior director Chandra sekhar Yeleti.
His debut ‘Aithe’ which came in 2003 romped home with success. And the subsequent release of ‘Anukokunda Oka Roju’ too was praised for the screenplay.
The director doesn’t regret making fewer flicks in these 18 years. “Only success decides how fast we are surging ahead,” he says. His movie ‘Check’ starring Nithiin and Priya Prakash Varrier is hitting screens on February 26.
“It’s an idea that has been ringing in my mind for long. A person with a rare talent is being scoured by some people only to unleash his potential on a big stage. There is no single USP to describe, per se, as ‘Check’ doesn’t solely depend on protagonist Aditya.
There are so many factors that contribute to the story as a whole. The background score and the screenplay would surely give audiences the adrenaline thrill if not edge-of the seat moments,” he says.
Chandra Sekhar Yeleti had to increase the jail sequences in ‘Check’ due to the lockdown. “Almost 70 per cent of the movie’s runtime shows how the lead protagonist Aditya languishes in jail. It has human drama.
How an intelligent boy who grew up on the streets is used by crooks. Waiting to face the gallows, how prisoner Aditya escapes from this difficult situation. How timely rescue knocks his door, is the crux.”
Chandra Sekhar Yeleti is quick to agree that his films so far could not reach anywhere near the commercial ambit of Telugu cinema.
“Yes, somehow it didn’t work out. Maybe the content I dealt with in my movies was different, I happened to get appreciation three or four years after their release in theatres,” says the director adding that one can’t be beyond the times or ahead of times, one should be with the times to create a niche for himself.
