Sometimes living up to a title could be a mammoth challenge for a filmmaker. And with a title like Masterpiece, the makers could lose the plot if the film does not even attempt to be flawless, if not outstanding. But director Manju Mandavya is confident that the Yash-starrer will keep up to the title.
The efforts being made seem to be tireless, especially with the director choosing four stunt masters for different sequences. While Ganesh has completed a fight sequence, another will be handled by Ravi Verma. They have also chosen Vijayan from Tollywood for the climax stunt. “We have been trying to bring in different choreographers for various songs. Likewise, we thought, a different stunt master will bring in a different feel to the fight sequences,” says Manju.
The team is off to Puducherry for 10 days where they will be shooting the climax scene. “The end sequence will have some never-before-seen action scenes. And it is required because today, the climax is an important element in any film, especially when it has big stars. So, we are ensuring a completely new and edge-of-the-seat sequence at the end. We required to shoot at a coastal belt and that is why we decided on Puducherry,” says the director who reveals that the climax scenes were supposed to be shot in Goa in May, but the plan fell through because of the scorching heat.
With the climax in place, Masterpiece almost completes the talky portions and the makes will be left with with two fights and a few songs.
“We have planned four songs for the film. As of now, we are yet to finalise the location for the song, but we are planning to shoot abroad. A couple of routine songs and a special track is also planned. Everything will get finalised once we get back from the climax shoot,” Manju says. Masterpiece has been generating a lot of buzz because of the negative shades seen in Yash’s character. The film also has actors like Suhasini, Shanvi Srivastava, Chikkanna among others.
