Jeerjimbe director Karthik Saragur is prepared to current his second function movie, Bheemasena Nalamaharaja and the director shares that this is his method of paying homage to cooks.

During Jeerjimbe, Karthik realised it is not very straightforward to make a film that doesn’t have components of a business pot-boiler however his challenges have been fairly completely different this time round. He revealed that probably the most difficult half was coaching the actors to cook dinner utilizing fireplace on the units. “Aravind, for most of the shoot, was playing with the fire. If he was not proficient or familiar with the situation, he could have ended up getting burned. So the actors were well prepared to handle the situation,” mentioned Karthik.

Even the amount of labor added to his challenges. “To okay a 30-second shot, I needed to be in sync with so many departments like camera, light and production. And we were doing a live sync-sound for the movie, so we could not have any exterior sound. We were playing with fire and perishable items so that was really difficult,” he famous.

The motivation to make Bheemasena Nalamaharaja stemmed from Karthik’s deep appreciation for cooks and the artwork of cooking. “I come from a family of chefs. It was not just a passion, it was everything for them. They even used kitchen slang to explain things to others in their everyday conversations. And having grown up watching them and their lifestyle, I wanted to pay homage to chefs,” he mentioned.

The analysis about meals led him to uncover the unknown details about India’s culinary tradition. “I was not aware that Nala was India’s first food scientist. He wrote a commentary on food recipes and it called Pakadarpana. We wanted to bring that element to the movie. We have shot an exclusive showing Pakadarpana, Nala and Bheema,” he revealed.

Bheemasena Nalamaharaja revolves across the protagonist’s efforts to treatment his spouse who loses her reminiscence in an accident by whipping up her favorite dishes. Karthik identified that there is scientific backing to the hero’s effort.

“It is based on medical research. If you watch the trailer, it will bring back the memories of certain food from your childhood. We feel it is because of the emotional connection but it actually is because of your neuroglial connection. There is a specific part of the hypothalamus, which stores all information and memory regarding food. It is medically proven. We wanted to tell a very emotional story in a very scientific way,” he remarked.

Bheemasena Nalamaharaja stars Aravind Iyer, Aarohi Narayan, Priyanka Thimmesh, and Achyuth Kumar. It will begin streaming on Amazon Prime Video from October 29.
