'Muddy', India's first off-road mud race movie, is directed by newcomer Dr. Pragabhal. 'Uppena' and 'Master' actor Vijay Sethupathi has unveiled its title logo as well as the first look.
"Mud-racing is a new subject. The director had made an extensive research to write the movie," the makers have said.
With music by Ravi Basrur, the film has editing by San Lokesh and cinematography by KG Ratheesh, who has got experience in Hollywood.
The 4x4 off-road racing film is in the last stages of its shoot. To be released in multiple languages, it is produced by Prema Krishnadas of PK7 Creations.
The motion poster suggests that 'Muddy' is an adventurous action thriller. The makers believe that the audience will get an unprecedented cinematic experience watching it.
What is the film about?
The story is mainly about the rivalry between different teams. There’s a blend of revenge, family drama, humour, adventure and other elements.
What was the biggest challenge in making it?
The greatest challenge before me was introducing a sport like mud racing to the viewers without losing its thrill and punch, the film's director said.
Finding the location was a huge task of the pre-production thus ended up with several dangerous yet scenic locations which weren’t framed in any of the movies.
What are the other interesting aspects?
There are three different patterns of mud race in the movie which was choreographed by the Director himself through his intense research for years. Director Pragabhal used costly modified vehicles to get the real Mud Race ambiance.
A Mud Race event was held for two days, during which the participants did adventurous stunts without any dupe or junior stunt artists.
Ravi Basrur of 'KGF' fame is the music director.
