“The clock is ticking… They are going to take your breath away! Trailer out tomorrow. #GathamOnPrime premieres on Nov 6 @bpoldaz @rakesh_galebhe #PoojithaKuraparthi @kiran_twytter @HarshaPratap @nooble451 @SricharanPakala #OffBeatFilms @SOriginals1 #MangoMassMedia”
The film is jointly produced by Offbeat Films and S Originals in association with Mango Mass Media.
The psychological thriller is made by a young group of US-based students and IT professionals. It is written and directed by Kiran Reddy and features Bhargava Poludasu, Rakesh Galebhe, and Poojitha Kuraparthi in lead roles.
As reported by The Hindu, the film is based on Kiran Reddy’s award-winning short film. The film’s idea was conceived to be an extension of the short film. Reddy has also won awards for his other short films, namely, A Winter to Remember and Where is Ayush?
The self-taught director told The Hindu, “Directors Harish Shankar and Merlapaka Gandhi who were in the US saw the film and said the content had scope and we could develop it into a full length film and that’s how Gatham took shape. It’s a psychological thriller. A person who forgot his past wakes up from coma and struggles to know about himself. His girlfriend is the only one who has information about him. He wants to meet his parents and they set out on a journey. The car breaks down and this is when a third person offers help. What happens there after is a spine chilling journey, with twists and turns.”
Actor Adivi Sesh released the film’s teaser on February 24, this year.
While Sri Charan Pakala who composed music for Evaru and Goodachari, scored the film’s music, Manojh Reddy, who worked in Ashwathama, was in charge of the cinematography.
The film was shot in Lake Tahoe in California.
