Mahi V Raghav’s ‘Yatra 2’, the sequel to the 2019 film, is set to hit theatres on February 8th. Unlike typical entertainers, this film is rich in political references and agendas, depicting the journey of AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy following his father’s demise, YS Rajasekhara Reddy.
The narrative spotlights Jaganmohan Reddy’s Padayatra, despite opposition from Congress’s high command. With elections on the horizon in AP later this year, supporters of the YSRCP hold high hopes for the film. Boasting a substantial budget of 50 Cr, a considerable portion has been allocated to actors remunerations, featuring Mammooty, Jeeva, and Mahesh Manjrekar, among others, alongside the production crew. While the prospects of recouping the investment appear challenging, the venture is seen as a strategic move benefiting the YSRCP indirectly, with the party expected to oversee all facets of the film. ‘Yatra 2’ isn’t solely driven by financial gains; its goal is to reach a wide audience.
The storyline revolves around Jaganmohan Reddy’s rise to power after his father’s tragic demise and the obstacles he encounters from adversaries. Rooted in real events, this Telugu drama unfolds over a runtime of 2 hours, 10 minutes, and 8 seconds featuring brief depictions of police actions.
