United Andhra Pradesh’s last people’s elected chief minister, Late Dr YS Rajasekhar Reddy’s inspiring journey of comprehensing people’s problems and needs is impressively depicted in ‘Yatra’ movie. Now, as a continuation to it, ‘Yatra 2’ is being made. While, Malayalam star hero Mammootty was reprised in the role of YSR, Kollywood star Jiiva did the role of his son, YS Jagan, current chief minister of Andhra Pradesh. ‘Yatra 2’ explores the political landscape of Andhra Pradesh between 2009-2019, along with YS Jagan’s historic walkathon for the sake of needy people. ‘Yatra 2’ is getting released in theatres on 8th February. Makers unveiled the trailer of ‘Yatra 2’ on 3rd February.
The trailer starts with a poor woman explaining her hard situation about her daughter by saying that she is hearing impaired and thus dumb. She says that her daughter needs hearing aid and they don’t even have money to provide that. Hearing this, YSR’s secretary advices him that state’s budget won’t allocate them to spend that much amount on single person. YSR replies him, ” I can understand what you are saying. Convey it to that kid that we are unable to help her.” This emotionally charged scene promises how high ‘Yatra 2’ is going to be . Then the trailer shows the demise of YSR, aftermath incidents, how Jagan started ‘Odarpu Yatra’ to console those who are suffering following his father’s death and what adversaries he faced due to his decision. The trailer ends with another emotional dialogue where a blind man asks YS Jagan played by Jiiva that ‘You are our YSR’s son. Stand for us as our leader.” To that Jiiva assures that ‘ He has listened to his words and he will be there for them.’
Trailer effectively showcases the political problems and emotional turmoil YS Jagan undergoes during 2009 to 2019 period. It struck the right chord with highly emotional scenes. Mahi V Raghav directed ‘Yatra 2’ which is jointly bankrolled by Three Autumn Leaves, V Celluloids and Shiva Meka. Santosh Narayanan’s music and Madhie’s cinematography has enhanced the mood of the trailer to a whole new level.
