When was the last time a Mooki film (silent film) was seen on silver screen? After Kamal Hassan’s ‘Pushpakavimanam’ no other film was made in the same genre. Now ‘VictoryVenkatesh is all set to feature in a film which is claimed to be a silent one. ‘Pilla Jamindar’ director Ashok will direct this project starring Venky in the lead role. Speaking on the occasion Ashok said “I have prepared this storyline 3 years ago and narrated it to Venkatesh. But he was not impressed then. When I narrated the complete story, he was excited and immediately gave a nod. This movie will have neither dialogues nor songs. But it’s not a silent film.”

Suresh Productions has recently completed 50 years and on the eve of this, they will be producing the film. They want to make the film with world cinema flavor and are aiming for Cannes Film Festival next year. “Currently the pre-production work is going on. We need to coin the film. The runtime of the film will be of 1 hour and 15 minutes. The story is original in concept and is not inspired by any movie. We are considering Bollywood actor Boman Irani and Tabu for vital roles. There are 12 important characters in the film and casting of them is also in progress,” added Ashok.
