‘Nuvvekkadunte Nenakkadunta' is a feel good movie about family and love.

The Kerala House at VGP Golden Beach in Perungudi on the outskirts of Chennai brimmed with activity as the unit of Sri Venkateswara Swamy Films parked there to shoot a few key portions and a couple of songs for their poignant love story, Nuvvekkadunte Nenakkadunta directed by Subha Selvam.

Hero Uday Kiran enters the luxuriously done up drawing room with heroine Swetha Basu Prasad as cinematographer Raghava captures the quizzical look on the faces of Ashish Vidyardhi, Nalini, ‘Nizhalgal' Ravi, Rajyalakshmi and Aarthi. ‘Chitram' Srinu followed the young couple. The director ordered for a ‘cut' to brief the next block in the scene, a light hearted one.

The camera position is changed and the reflectors are placed accordingly. As the shoot progresses one understands that Ashish Vidyardhi is cast as the maternal uncle of Uday who stays with him. Nalini plays Udya's aunt while Ravi and Rajyalakshmi are cast as his parents. As is customary, the maternal uncle harps with the idea of getting his daughter (Arthi) married to his nephew Uday but the hero had already fallen inlove with Swetha. But he hasn't got the courage to tell his uncle about his love. Finally he brings his lady love home to introduce her to his uncle and family members and his struggle creates humour. “It is a comedy scene,” informs the producers D. Kumar and Easwara Prasad. Termed as a maturedlove story, the film has no conventional villains but there is a certain force that the protagonist is forced to fight against within a set period of time to save his lover andlove ‘leading to an intriguing and absorbing climax.'

The unit has shot the pivotal scenes for close to two weeks in Chennai and Puducherry along with two songs choreographed by Sivaji and tuned by Pradeep Koneru. “The theme unveils the tender feelings and emotional upheavals in the young lovers creating a feelgood movie experience for the audience. With this shoot, we have completed sixty per cent of the portions. Popular comedians will participate in the next schedule in which the climax part and the remaining two songs will be filmed,” informed the executive producer Soma Vijay Prakash.

Presented by U.K. Avenues, the film is slated for a summer release.
