The trailer starts with a homemaker Anupama sensing something fishy about an incident in her apartment. She is confident about not going wrong with her prediction. Later, there’s talk of an egg, valued at over Rs 200 crore, being stolen from a museum in Kolkata. There’s an investigative cop who’s trying to dig deep into a case. Anupama also refers to an egg that her husband had bought recently. The mystery deepens when the security tightens around the apartment where Anupama stays. There’s confusion between Anupama and her husband over a person’s death. What’s the common link to these incidents?
Priyamani is cast as Anupama, an over-curious homemaker who runs a popular YouTube channel Anupama Ghumaghuma. John Vijay, Sharanya Pradeep, Pammi Sai and Shanti Rao essay crucial roles in the thriller comedy. Bhamakalapam is produced by Sudheer Edara and Bogavalli Bapineedu under SVCC Digital (also the makers of Ashoka Vanam Lo Arjuna Kalyanam). Several promos of the film, right from its first look poster to the first glimpse and the teaser (launched by Rashmika Mandanna) left audiences intrigued about this mysterious puzzle.
Talking at the launch, the extremely popular Telugu actor Vijay Deverakonda said, “” I’m thrilled to be a part of the Bhamakalapam trailer launch. The showrunner Bharat Kamma, producer Bapineedu and director Abhimanyu Tadimeti together make a brilliant team and I’m excited to see what they bring to the table. I’m thrilled to see Priyamani making her Telugu OTT debut with aha. I binge-watched both seasons of The Family Man and missed the characters when the show ended. Regardless of language, she brings rootedness and authenticity to every performance. I will watch Bhamakalapam on aha on February 11 and I hope audiences watch and encourage it. aha is bringing exclusive Telugu content, telling our stories and I wish nothing but the best for them and the team behind Bhamapkalapam.”
Cinematographed by Deepak Yeragera, the film is edited by Viplav Nyshadam. Two composers Justin Prabhakaran (known for Radhe Shyam, Dear Comrade) and Mark K Robin are associated with the project.
aha’s recent releases include Arjuna Phalguna, Hey Jude, The American Dream, Lakshya, Senapathi, 3 Roses, Laabham, Manchi Rojuloachaie, Romantic, Most Eligible Bachelor, Anubhavinchu Raja, Sarkaar, Chef Mantra, Alludu Garu, and Christmas Thatha, to name a few. Telugu Indian Idol, the first-ever Indian Idol in South India, hosted by Sreerama Chandra, will be streaming on the platform soon. aha’s talk show, Unstoppable, hosted by Nandamuri Balakrishna, has been rated the no. 1 talk show on IMDB.
