IFFI’s Panorama: Telugu films Akhanda and RRR make their place


The Indian Panorama is regarded as the centerpiece of India's International Film Festival (IFFI). The festival will take place in Goa for eight days beginning November 20.

The films 'Roudram Ranam Rudhiram' and 'Akhanda' have been chosen to be streamed at the festival's Mainstream Cinema Section. Tollywood is responsible for two of the five mainstream films. The others are 'The Kashmir Files' (Hindi), 'Tonic' (Bengali), and 'Dharmveer' (Marathi).

The selections are a testament to the success of SS Rajamouli and Boyapati Srinu's flicks. Jr NTR, Ram Charan, and Nandamuri Balakrishna fans are overjoyed at the news. On Friday (October 21), 'RRR' was launched in Japanese theaters.

Aside from the above two big-ticket releases, two other Tollywood feature films will be shown. They are 'Khudiram Bose' (a biography of the same-named freedom fighter) and 'Cinema Bandi' (streaming on Netflix). Vidya Sagar Raju directed the former, and Kandregula Praveen directed the latter.
