A Quadrilingual

The critically acclaimed 1969 novel Ampasayya, penned by author Naveen, is now being adapted into a movie. Directed by Prabhakar Jaini (of Neeku Vandanam and Pranaya Veedhullo fame), the film, titled Campus Ampasayya, will be set in the backdrop of Osmania University in Hyderabad. This evergreen novel’s adaptation will be released in four languages simultaneously.

“The film has a soul.  It has a lot of values.  There are many emotional conflicts.  We are planning to release the movie not just in Telugu, but also in Malayalam, Tamil and Hindi,’” the makers revealed.

According to the makers, Campus Ampassaya is headed for a release in June. “Ampasayya is the favourite novel of many. We have been making efforts to make this film for about three years and the output has come out really well. We have shot the film in Narsapur’s forest area, Warangal’s Ramappa temple and in Osmania University campus. The screenplay narrates the  incidents that take place on a day in the life of a villager who has come to study in Osmania. We have re-created the 1970s climate authentically here. This will surely impress all sections of audiences,” said director Prabhakar Jaini.

Featuring Shyam Kumar and Pavani in lead roles, Campus Ampasayya also features Akella Raghavendra, Swathi Naidu, Mogilayya, Yogi Diwan, Valmiki, and Monika Thomson in important roles.
