Critique of ‘Srikanth’

The Hindustan Times critique commended the movie for presenting a raw depiction of the societal indifference faced by those with disabilities and their daily challenges. The film shines a spotlight on the systemic prejudices in educational and occupational opportunities for individuals with disabilities. This issue is epitomized in a pivotal scene where Srikanth seeks investors and one firm, hesitating to invest, instead proposes he assist with creating Diwali candles—a conventional expectation of the visually impaired.

The Story of ‘Srikanth’

Rajkummar Rao stars as the visionary industrialist Srikanth Bolla in ‘Srikanth’. He portrays the incredible journey of Srikanth, who, despite being visually impaired, establishes the successful Bollant Industries. The film’s cast also includes the talents of Jyotika, Alaya F, and Sharad Kelkar as key characters.

Rajkummar’s Preparation for the Role

In an interview with ANI, Rajkummar detailed his preparation process for his portrayal of Srikanth. He shared, “I had to do a considerable amount of preparation as I have never before played a person with a visual impairment. My experience began with visits to a blind school, where I interacted closely with many visually impaired individuals. I observed and recorded a number of discussions to gain insights into their worldview and everyday dealings. I also dedicated time to learn from Srikanth himself, since his life story is the foundation of the film. That knowledge greatly influenced my performance.”
