Going by the teaser, the film is set in a highly religious village, which comes under attack from outsiders. Then enters Chiranjeevi’s Acharya, who is a communist revolutionary. He fights and paints the town red with the blood of bad people. The massy avatar of the megastar with the powerful background music by Mani Sharma leaves the audience hooting.
The teaser has Ram Charan’s narration. He reminds us that God doesn’t have to come down every time to fight injustice.
Watch the trailer here:
In November last year Chiranjeevi had tested positive for COVID-19 before he resumed the shoot of ”Acharya”, production on which was halted due to the coronavirus-induced nationwide lockdown. Filming on the movie is currently underway in Kokapet, Hyderabad.
The movie reportedly revolves around a middle-aged Naxalite-turned-social reformer who launches a fight against the Endowments Department over misappropriation and embezzlement of temple funds and donations.
Presented by Surekha Konidela, the film is produced by Charan and Niranjan Reddy under their Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainment.
