Thandel also marks the second collaboration between Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi after their 2021 film Love Story. The makers have now unveiled a sneak peek into the film titled “Essence of Thandel,” offering a glimpse into the world of the movie.

The First Glimpse

The 2-minute 11-second video opens with Naga Chaitanya’s character heading out into the sea, setting the stage for what unfolds. Transitioning to a prison in Karachi, the character faces challenges from police officers, yet boldly expresses patriotism for India. The video concludes by introducing Sai Pallavi’s character, strolling on the beach.

Unveiling True Events: Thandel’s Background

Thandel is grounded in true events related to the fisherfolk in Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh, in 2018. Naga Chaitanya’s character is portrayed as a fisherman from this community. To prepare for the film, director Chandoo Mondeti and Naga Chaitanya visited K. Matchilesam village in Srikakulam, immersing themselves in the local culture and lifestyle of the fisherfolk.
