Raj Tarun has touched upon something new, away from his boy-next-door roles. Now he will be seen as a serious chap toiling hard to untangle himself from a murky dark episode of his life. His movie Power Play is hitting the theatres on Friday.
“For all our team, including director Vijay Kumar Konda, co-actor Dhanraj and many of the technical crew, it’s the first film of this kind. Just after lockdown, our team and writer Nandyal Ravi gathered and discussed the subject. Previously, we made a comedy caper, full stretch was hilarious. So we have been thinking of coming up with something new like Power Play.”
Even though a slew of films tanked at the box office, Raj Tarun says failures don’t bother him much. He says that there are some things that aren’t controlled but he is optimistic about giving his best each day. “We come with an intention of giving the best to every film. In the end, we all aspire and dream that whatever film we do would become a hit. Some things are out of my control as I can’t involve a hundred per cent. Not repeating mistakes is what I’ve learnt,” he adds.
Elaborating on the movie, Raj Tarun says the story is all about how powerful people, who wield an authority on the marginalised, play the tactics and influence common people. And how a common man busts a conspiracy while trying to prove his innocence and comes out unblemished forms the crux of the story.
“Basically, the title is relatable to cricket. So we agreed to make it the title as we felt it is very apt to the story. We never attempted such kind of movie and the genre. Power Play will surely entertain audiences this time,” he says.
Raj Tarun says Power Play banks on the background music that was rendered by Suresh Bobbili who gave music to Rana Daggubati’s Virata Parvam. “His music puts Power Play on a different pedestal,” he adds.
