The unit of director Krishna Vamsi's NTR-Ileana starrer Rakhee came together on 7th January at Hotel Green Park to celebrate the success of Rakhee's music at the Hexa Platinum disc function. Veteran director-producer Dasari Narayanarao graced the occasion as the chief guest while the remaining guest list included K.L.Narayana, S.Gopal Reddy, Devi Sri Prasad, S.S.Rajamouli, Raju Harwani, Dil Raju, B.V.S.N.Prasad and M.L.Kumar Choudary along with the film's cast and crew.
"Rakhee is a film for today's society" muisc director Devi Sri Prasad said "Krishna Vamsi has portrayed the problems faced in the society in quite a few films of his and Rakhee depicits the problems faced by the women of our society. It is a very moving story. I have always enjoyed working with Krishna Vamsi".
"I would not have made a movie like Rakhee" guest S.S.Rajamouli said "Rakhee has achieved this kind of success because it was made by Krishna Vamsi. Women's problems in society is a very delicate subject to deal with, specially on celluloid and Krishna Vamsi has done it with much aplomb. NTR's performance is soul stirring. Devi Sri Prasad has composed some amazing tunes for Rakhee".
"Sri Durga banner has always represented movies with a strong storyline and performances" actor Kota said on the occasion "And Krishna Vamsi's Rakhee has just proved that all over again. NTR's performance in this film will be remembered for a long time now. I had a professional satisfaction performing in Rakhee". In addition producer K.L.Narayana said that Rakhee is the most appreciated film made by Sri Durga banner.
"NTR has given a very mature performance in Rakhee" chief guest Dasari Narayanarao said, "Such kind of performance is very rare in the current generation of actors. NTR's performance has stiired the director in me. I have not seen a movie like Rakhi, that has a sensitive portrayal of women's problems, in recent times. I congratulate the producers for making a good movie like Rakhi. Even though Devi Sri Prasad has given good music I thought Rakhee's storyline would over shadow it, but I am happy that we are now celebrating the Hexa Platinum disc".
"I have always been in awe Dasari Narayana Rao's films and his direction" director Krishna Vamsi said "I am very happy that he had agreed to grace this occasion as the chief guest. Rakhee was inspired from the fact that it is the women who give birth and nuture us. I would like to thank to the Telugu audiences' for encouraging the film".
"All the credit for Rakhee's success and my performance goes to Krishna Vamsi" hero NTR said "after a long time I had immense professional satisfaction working in this film. When Dasari, after wahtching Rakhee, complimented me on my performance I realized the kind of responsibility I have as an actor. Like Kota said Rakhee will remain as one of me most memorable performances. And so will my performance in my next movie with Rajamouli".
