Jaanu Trailer: Samantha and Sharwanand steal the show in this faithful remake of 96
After striking the right chord with a couple of soothing songs and a heart-touching teaser, the makers of Jaanu have unveiled the theatrical trailer of the film. Starring Sharwanand and Samantha Akkineni in lead roles, this Telugu remake of the Kollywood blockbuster 96 is helmed by the original director Prem Kumar and bankrolled by prominent producer Dil Raju.
The 2-minute long video introduces the protagonist as a travel photographer who goes nostalgic after visiting his childhood place. When he happens to meet his first and only love after many years, things seem to get pretty dramatic and the proceedings go to and forth showcasing both the school episodes and the present situation.
Despite being a faithful remake of 96, Jaanu will instantly capture your attention and keep you glued thanks to the terrific performances of Sharwanand and Samantha. The chemistry between these experienced actors looks absorbing and going by trailer, they have certainly stolen the show.
Music director Govind Vasantha has stayed true to the genre by composing mesmerising tunes for Jaanu. While the cinematography is brilliantly handled by Mahendran Jayaraj N, the editing has been done by Praveen KL. The film is set for a release on February 7.
Helmed on a shoe-string budget, the original version of 96 opened to fabulous response from all quarters and enjoyed a glorious run at the ticket counters. Popular producer Dil Raju acquired the Telugu remake rights of 96 and convinced the original director to direct the same.
