Telugu cinemas most rapidly rising star Vijay Deverakonda is ready with his next release titled “Dear Comrade”, which will be his biggest release to date in four languages Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
The film is said to have a deep-rooted connection to the politics of violence and it’s interesting how Vijay fuses vigorous violence with unbridled passion all within a few seconds of the teaser’s playing time.
Unlike other major stars, Vijay likes to leave nothing to chance and we’ve good reason to believe that this teaser showing Vijay knocking a solid punch in an adversary’s face and then quickly moving in to catch an intense kiss with his co-star Rashmika Mandanna is indicative of the film’s action-romance ideology. The pair was last seen in the 2018 hit film “Geetha Govindam”.
In “Dear Comrade”, Vijay plays a student leader with Communist leanings. Apparently, this student leader leads in the field of lip-locks too. The kiss in the teaser shows Vijay fully in charge of the task at hand.
Recently we heard many reports that Vijay Deverakonda’s popularity is on the rise in south India.
Cashing this opportunity, the makers of his upcoming movie are planning to release the teaser in all the four south Indian languages.
Locking the date, ‘Dear Comrade’ teaser will be out in Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu languages on March 17th. The latest poster with teaser launch date has Rashmika Mandanna hugging Vijay out of love.
Written and directed by Bharat Kamma, Vijay is playing the role of a student leader and will be delivering dialogues in Andhra slang while Rashmika will be seen in the role of a sportswoman.
Touted to be an emotional drama, ‘Dear Comrade’ comes up with the tagline ‘Fight For What You Love.’
Justin Prabhakaran is composing music for this film while Mythri Movie Makers and Big Ben Cinemas banners are jointly producing it.
