Cinematographer Rammy aka Ramesh Kumar is in the midst of shooting one of the most stimulating projects in his profession. The movie in question is superb director Ram Gopal Varma’s Killing Veerappan, a documentary and drama page-turner, based on Operation Cocoon that led to the assassination of forest gangster Veerappan. It is being remade in Hindi and Kannada with the Kannada Celebrity Shivaraj Kumar in the key role. It is dissimilar from the film Ramesh’s Vana Yuddham. Unlike Vana Yuddham, which also orbited around his life? It has been attempted to wrap every aspect of the process, including the mass media reports and articles told by the police department. It depicted in 80 percent of the flick, says the cameraman, who was in the city lately for a studio at Dr. GR Damodaran College of Science. Rammy tells that filming for the film was a demanding task and was one of the most thought-provoking experiences.

They had to record under tremendously challenging weather circumstances of Yellapur, Hubli, that too within a projected time.Since it was a thick forest, lights would be inadequate inside the forest even in the day. It would be so shady even at 10.30 A.M. in the dawn. And when it rained there, it just decants. So, if the crew had shot a specific act in the rain at a time, they would have to pause for similar situations to be able to shoot the next shot for steadiness. But the inadequate time didn’t give the filmmakers that lavishness. They had to film fast, that too in a narrow time frame. When interrogated if Rammy was concentrating on Bollywood since he did not sign any Tamil flick after his original scheme, pat comes the answer.

After Yaamirukka Bayamey, he got busy with offers in the horror entertainment genre. But he didn’t want to get stereotyped. Now he is associated with talks for an additional movie in Tamil. But before he makes up his mind on doing a scheme, he wants to end all his unfinished projects. Fascinatingly Rammy had grouped up RGV for one more movie called Secret. It’s a psychosomatic thriller and a multilingual in Telugu (MogaiPuvvu) and Hindi (Secret). The picture leads Sachiin Joshi, Meera Chopra, and Kainaat Arora. The flick is anticipated to hit screens just after two months’ time. When asked how the continued relationship with RGV occurred, Rammy answers, RGVs associate and he had operated together, and it was him who said that the world-class director was searching for a cameraman.
