Among the 9 releases this Friday, Youth Star Nithiin's action thriller Check is the most-hyped film. Directed by Mr. Perfectionist Chandra Sekhar Yeleti, the film also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Mollywood young beauty Priya Prakash Varrier in the lead roles. V. Anand Prasad is producing the film under Bhavya Creations banner. Kalyani Malik is composing the musical score. Here are some key highlights to expect from the film.
Based On Indoor Sport
Although there are many sports-based films in Telugu, most of them primarily concentrate on outdoor sports like Cricket, Hockey, Kabaddi, etc. But Check is based on the indoor sport Chess (although not the first film based on chess). The film's protagonist Aditya is an exceptional chess player.
Wink Sensation Priya Varrier's Tollywood Debut
Priya Prakash Varrier, who became an overnight sensation with the wink scene in her Mollywood debut film Oru Adaar Love is making her Tollywood debut with the film. She plays the love interest of Nithiin in the film.
The Mystery Behind Aditya's Imprisonment
The posters, teaser, and trailer showed Aditya (Nithiin's character) in a prison who is under a death sentence. The trailer also showed Sampath Raj (who is playing a cop) calling Nithiin a terrorist. What is the mystery behind the imprisonment of Aditya? is the suspenseful point to watch out for.
Rakul Preet Singh As A Lawyer
Rakul Preet Singh for the first time is playing the role of a lawyer, who believes in Aditya's innocence and tries to find out the mystery of his imprisonment. After watching the stellar performance of Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar as a lawyer in the recent film Naandhi, we need to see if Rakul can excel in this role or not.
Chandra Sekhar Yeleti's Off-beat Script
Although Yeleti has directed only 6 films right from his debut with Aithe in 2003, he is known for choosing off-beat scripts. The same holds true for Check. The story revolves around a death row convict Aditya who is defeated in court. To prove his innocence, Aditya needs to play the mind game to win his rivals, and thus Yeleti might have included the Chess game to show it symbolically.
Second Recent Telugu Film With The Protagonist In Prison
While Allari Naresh Naandhi showed him as an under-trial prisoner who suffers police brutality, Check is the second recent Telugu film with a prison backdrop and the lead hero playing the prisoner. However, the film might not show the police brutality as Naandhi.
Second Collaboration Of Kalyani Malik And Yeleti After A Long Gap
Music composer Kalyani Malik and Yeleti have worked together for Yeleti's directorial debut Aithe in 2003. After a long gap of 18 years, the duo has joined hands for Check.
