MMGL Interview – Paruchuri Gopalakrishna 1 of 2
****Update: April/6/2011: There is nothing new in this post/podcast. Just resurfacing an old interview for more exposure****
Who needs introduction to Paruchuri brothers? I had the opportunity to interview the younger of two, Sri Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, in August 2007. I am sure he has given hundreds of interviews in 30+ years of his career as a writer. I would like to think that this one is different and better than any you have seen.
In 1982, when NTR stormed to power in a short-time after founding Telugu Desam, Two Eenaadus were credited for helping NTR’s wave. The first was Eenadu news paper and the second was Eenaadu, the movie (acted by Krishna). In this part, Sri Paruchuri talks about the background of his writing for a movie Eenaadu. He also talked about how a short story by Kodavatiganti Kutumbarao was developed into a full length movie by the name Chali Cheemalu. The movie, was a major success at box office: thanks mainly to the dialogues written by Paruchuri Brothers. Nutan Prasad’s performance was the highlight in this movie. His catch phrase was, “nootokka jillaala andagaadni.”
