‘Bhaje Vaayu Vegam’: Director Prashanth Reddy Promises Gripping Emotional Action Thriller

Director Prashanth Reddy is gearing up for the release of his debut film, “Bhaje Vaayu Vegam,” an emotional action thriller starring Kartikeya Gummakonda and Iswarya Menon. Presented by UV Creations, the film hits theaters worldwide on May 31st.

Casting Choices and Story

In a recent interview, Reddy shed light on his creative vision and casting decisions. He explains his selection of Kartikeya, stating, “He performs well and has a hero’s personality,” making him ideal for the dual nature of the character who requires a performer in the first half and a hero in the second. Iswarya Menon, with her traditional charm, perfectly embodies the film’s middle-class heroine.

Production Challenges and Delays

Reddy addressed the film’s delay, citing technical issues during editing and a commitment to post-production quality. He emphasizes, “It would have been pressuring for the first movie to be delayed for some time.”

Trailer Secrets and Story Twists

The trailer hints at a father-son sentiment, but Reddy assures viewers that the narrative goes beyond familiar tropes. He clarifies, “The trailer does not show any twists as the story should not be revealed.”

Reintroducing Rahul Tyson

Rahul Tyson joins the cast as Kartikeya’s brother, a crucial character. Reddy explains, “While thinking about who to cast for this role, UV suggested Rahul Tyson… He had taken a gap in between. I also felt that Kartikeya’s brother would be fresh. That’s how Rahul came into the movie.”

A Relatable Hero’s Journey

The film explores the struggles and triumphs of an ambitious young man. Reddy describes the hero’s journey: “We all come from town to town to achieve something. We will lose some here and there in order to come… The audience feels that his goal is different.”

Inspiration and Influences

Reddy acknowledges the influence of director S.S. Rajamouli, stating his desire to enter the industry after seeing Rajamouli’s “Sye” movie.


High-Octane Second Half

Reddy promises a thrilling second half, filled with action sequences that will keep audiences glued to their seats. He reveals, “It is believed that you will not look at your phone in the second half. So gripping.”

Music and Score

The film features a unique musical approach. Reddy explains, “There will not be a single song in the second half. The screenplay is racy. If the story goes at a fast pace, the audience will not want a song to be there.”

Capturing Audience Attention

Reddy emphasizes the importance of audience engagement. He states, “Audiences have come into the trend of watching reels. Even if they get bored for a moment, they will change the reel… My idea is to engage the audience without giving a small gap.”

Hero as Inspiration

Creating relatable heroes is a key focus for Reddy. He believes, “The audience will connect with the hero. They should have a hero character to inspire them.”

Learning Through Directing

Reddy reflects on the growth he experienced through directing. “You can learn a thousand times more by directing a movie than what you learn as an assistant director.”

A Unique Hero for a Unique Story

Drawing inspiration from Rajamouli’s heroes, Reddy crafts a unique protagonist. He explains, “Hero characters are very common in Rajamouli’s movies. But they face unusual problems. I think the hero should be like that in my film too.”

Looking Ahead

Reddy concludes by teasing future projects, stating, “I have some scripts at the moment. I will announce my new movie after the release of the ‘Bhaje Vaayu Vegam’ movie.”

With its captivating story, talented cast, and action-packed sequences, ‘Bhaje Vaayu Vegam’ promises to be a thrilling cinematic experience. Reddy’s dedication to storytelling and audience engagement suggests a promising directorial debut.
