Guduru Narayana Reddy is producing ‘Razakar’ under the banner of Samarveer Creations and directed by Yata Satyanarayana, starring Bobby Simha, Vedhika, Prema, Indraja, Makrand Deshpande and Anishka Tripathi. The film unit released the first look poster of this movie on Friday. Former Maharashtra Governor Vidyasagar Rao, Karimnagar Member of Parliament Bandi Sanjay, AP Jitender Reddy, Visveswar Reddy, Vithal, KL Narayana, KS Rama Rao, Suddala Ashok Teja, B Gopal were present at the launch event. Bobby Simha, Vedika and others participated in the event.

Former Maharashtra Governor Vidyasagar Rao said, “At that time, there were 8 districts here. And 5 districts in Maharashtra and 3 districts in Karnataka were all together in Hyderabad. Because the British government issued a law to make all of them one country, Lord Nizam decided to be an independent state. He formed an army of one lakh, two lakh strong Razakars. Many crimes were committed. Hyderabad got independence 17 months after our country got independence with the unity of all the people. Islam is different and Razakars are different. Muslim brothers were among those who fought against the Razakars. Many like Maulana and Tabrez Khan fought for the freedom of Hyderabad. Future generations need to know such history. We should watch Razakar’s film and encourage it,” he said.

Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay said, “When we saw the movie Kashmir Files, Narayana and I both thought that we should make a movie called Patabasti Files.” But first we decided to do the movie Razakar. Today’s youth do not know about our history and it’s a very good thought to show the history. But some people describe Nizam’s rule as golden age and that’s wrong. Even if they want to show history as history, they try to show it in a religious perspective. Because of that they think with the fear that some people will get trouble. Guduru Narayana Reddy and Yata Satyanarayana together made the movie Razakar to show the history that happened as it happened and not from the perspective of religion. I know how hard they’ve worked. We all know that August 15 is our Independence Day. But Hyderabad got independence on September 17. No one knows about the history of the vile Nizam rule. Razakar’s movie is an attempt to showcase that. In this film they tried to show the real history. The way Kashmir files were publicized, now Razakar movie should be publicized. Narayana Reddy and Satyanarayana will make more films only if this movie is appreciated. Congratulations to the entire team.

Suddala Ashok Teja said, “It takes a lot of guts to make Razakar movie. My parents Suddala Hanuman and Janakamma both of them fought against the Razakars and Nizam government. A pen can defeat the mighty gun. That’s why I think I got an opportunity to write songs in this movie,” he said.

Producer Guduru Narayana Reddy said, “Vidya Sagar Rao is a person who has taught me many valuable lessons in my life. Also, it is a great pleasure to have Sanjay anna at this launch event. Sanjay anna is the back bone of this movie. I made this film because of him. I was named after my grandfather. I made the movie Razakar with his inspiration. There was no stopping the atrocities committed by the Razakars during the Nizam’s regime. When Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, whom we call Indian Iron Man, sent the military here, then Rajvi tried to enter our village. Then my grandfather stopped him from entering the village. There was a big war of words between Rajvi and my grandfather. Many of our elders told me about it. Many things in our history have been kept secret. I will not talk about things now. As a Telangana supporter, I made a film named Razakar as an Indian. I did not make this film to insult anyone” he said.

Director of the film Yata Satyanarayana said, “Thanks to producer Gudur Narayana Reddy for giving me the opportunity to make a powerful subject like this as a film. This is a movie inspired by the struggle for liberation. This is a story of 800 heroes. This is the story that brought independence to Hyderabad. Narayana Reddy has always been asking me to do this film. I said let’s see. But one day he called me from Tirumala Venkateswara Swamy temple, another form of Yadagiri Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy, and asked if he would make a film or not? asked. Not only did I immediately say OK,I also got the title registered. This is not a religious history, it is our history. “If we don’t see Razakar’s movie, our life has no meaning,” he said.

Heroine Vedika said, “I was surprised to know that Hyderabad got independence a few months after the country got independence. Razakar’s film based on such a story should be appreciated by all. Thanks to Narayana Reddy, Director Satyanarayanagaru. Everyone worked very hard for the film. The director got the output with clarity as to what he wanted. Bobby Simha is a good co-star. He is a National Award winning actor. I feel honored to do this film,” she said.

All the guests who participated in this program requested everyone to support the movie Razakar and watch in theatres.
