In what reads like a fairy tale turned fantasy fiction, Nanjupuram tries to woo viewers who like thrillers smeared with mythology and legends about snakes. Directed by Charles, Nanjupuram has Raghav, Monica and Thambi Ramaiah filling up the shoes of characters who earn the wrath of snakes in a village that worships them. There is also a love story and it’s enmeshed in this snake-human war of the worlds.
Nanjupuram is produced by Illusion Infinite and is likely to have computer graphics since the movie’s storyline has lots of scope to employ CG. The story happens in a village nestled among the dense forests that is also inhabited by poisonous snakes. Snakes roam around freely in the village and the village is also mired with other societal issues like caste discrimination.
Raghav, who plays the lead, takes on the poisonous snakes and also tries to eradicate the caste discrimination prevalent in the village. All hell breaks loose when he falls in love with a girl from the lower caste of the village (presumably, Monica). His love is now literally caught between his fight against the poisonous snakes and the superstitious beliefs of the villagers.
Nanjupuram, a suspense and a paranormal thriller, is scored by Raghav and will be released this weekend.
