APF is completely original – Hari Yelleti
Director Hari Yelleti said, “I always believed in originality and the script and scenes of APF are completely original. All the dialogues in the film came from the bottom of my heart. Though I was a qualified hardware engineer doing computer chips in USA, I am a creative artist at the heart. I worked for organizations like NASA. I am basically a writer and I attended the film school in USA. I did a couple of short films that went to film festivals. I felt that with my qualifications I could easily get a film chance after coming to film industry and I was proven to be wrong. I penned a few articles in idlebrain.com. The producers approached me after reading the articles by understanding how passionate I am about films. The Ankith character in this film is more like me. An opinioned fellow. Nikhil got selected even before Happy Days was released. I selected him because he resembles the character a lot. There is so much of honest in Megha Burman. I feel that getting this cast and crew is god’s design for me. Vinu Thomas is fabulous as a music director. This film deals with what happiness is all about.”
Sridhar Reddy (Madhura entertainment) said, “Vinu Thomas has done amazing job. Listening to this music is like drinking coconut water in hot summer. We priced the CD at 20 rupees so that everybody could buy and listen to this wonderful music.”
Vinu Thomas said that APF is his first film and APF is a lovely movie.
