Director Ajay Bhupathi’s ‘Mangalavaaram’ to have pan-India release on November 17


After ‘RX 100’ and ‘Maha Samudram’, super-talented director Ajay Bhupathi is returning to the big screen with ‘Mangalavaaram’. Produced by Swathi Reddy Gunupati and Suresh Varma under the banner of Mudra Media Works, the film has Payal Rajput in the lead role. The creators of the thriller drama have announced that the film will be released on November 17th in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi.

Director Ajay Bhupathi described ‘Mangalavaaram as a rustic action thriller set in a rural setting. “Every character in the movie is quite refreshing. Who is good? Who is evil? The narrative has been crafted in such a way that easy answers can’t be found. This is a character-based movie wherein Payal Rajput’s character will shock you. The audience viewing ‘Mangalavaaram’ in theatres will experience a different level of surprise. We have decided to release the movie in theaters on November 17th,” he added.

Producers Swathi Reddy Gunupati and Suresh Varma said, “Ajay Bhupathi carved a new trend in Telugu with ‘RX100’. And now, ‘Mangalavaaram’ will spawn a whole new trend. This is a film with a difference. The director has attempted something that we have never seen before on the Indian screen. We are sure that, on November 17th, the audience are going to echo our sentiments. We shot the film for 99 days, 51 of which were night shoots. This is a film with top-class technical values. Ajaneesh B Loknath, who is popular as the composer of ‘Kantara’, has provided extraordinary music. MR Raja Krishnan, who has worked on films like ‘Vikram Vedha’, ‘Kantara’, ‘Vikrant Rona’, and ‘Salaar’ and won a National Award for ‘Rangasthalam’, is providing sound design for our film. The entire filming has been finished. We are currently in post-production.” The producers added that the movie’s trailer release date will be made official soon.

Ajay Bhupathi is the production partner at A Creative Works for ‘Mangalavaaram’.
