What happens when one acquires all the knowledge available in books, but lacks common sense? What happens when one is obsessed with attaining the first rank and doesn’t care about what is happening around the world and him? What happens when he loses a loved one because he cannot decipher what true love is, since it is not written in books? This is the complete essence of First Rank Raju, the teaser of which was released today.
Meet Raju, a guy brought up with a belief that books provide all the knowledge in the world. His childhood is spent with the very same belief, making him one of the most brilliant students, when it comes to bookish knowledge. However, when it comes to common sense, he is an absolute failure.
First Rank Raju, originally a Kannada flick, came out in 2015. Now, this project is being remade into Telugu with the same title. Written and directed by Naresh Kumar H.N., a noted director, First Rank Raju is one of a kind story. Chetan Maddineni, Kashish Vohra, Prakash Raj, Priyadarshi, Dr. Bramhanandam and Rao Ramesh are playing key roles in this upcoming project.
While Naresh Kumar H.N., the director of the Kannada version, penned the script of First Rank Raju, V.K. Manjunath is producing it, under the banner of Dolphin Entertainment. Kiran Ravindranath is composing the music for First Rank Raju, while Giri Mahesh is the editor.
