The teaser trailer for the upcoming Telugu movie Jawaan has been released on YouTube. Jawaan has been directed by BVS Ravi and produced by Krishna and Dil Raju(presenter), and stars Telugu superstar Sai Dharam Tej in a menacingly patriotic role. The movie is being released under the Arunachal Creations banner. SS Thaman is the music director and has produced a powerful background score for the patriotic movie, as far as the teaser trailer goes. The teaser is heavy on powerful dialogues and the character of Sai Dharam Tej is a common man who is more grateful to the country of his birth than he is proud of it.
The reference to Jawaan in the movie title is to the soldier-like character of the civilian played by Dharam Tej. With dialogues like ‘Patriotism is no crown; it’s nothing but gratitude’, the film is looking to make a splash on the conscience of movie-goers who are constantly exposed to bombastic patriotism both on and off screen. Mehreen Pirzada from the famous ‘Krishnagadi Veera Prema Gadha’ movie is the leading lady, and Tamil actor Prasanna is the protagonist, although they do not appear in the teaser trailer. The cinematography is credited to Guhan and editing to SR Shekhar. Art direction is by Brahma Kadali.
The teaser trailer has taken the social media by storm and has generated enough hits in the last twenty-four hours to make us think that this is going to be an eagerly awaited movie. The movie is set to be released on 1 September 2017.
