The trailer of Vijay Deverakonda’s upcoming release Dear Comrade (2019) was unveiled on Thursday, 11 July, and it has garnered terrific response from the star’s fans but one can’t shake off heavy Arjun Reddy (2017) hangover from the visuals.

The trailer hints at another story of love, destruction and self-discovery and Deverakonda plays Bobby Krishnan, who is introduced as someone reeling from heartbreak and we see him on a solo road trip. He looks like he’s been on this journey for a while as he sports thick beard and unkempt hair.  

Going by the trailer, Deverakonda plays a student leader and one who can’t control his anger. However, this time his anger appears to be fuelled by politics.

Rashmika Mandanna plays a cricketer and going by her scenes with Deverakonda, it can be assumed that the film will be intense and emotional.

When the film was launched last year, many speculated that Deverakonda plays a Communist leader. However, in an interview, Kamma had said: “A lot of people have been asking me if this story touches upon Communism, and I’d like to clarify it doesn’t. However, Vijay plays a student leader and he follows the philosophies of Communism in his actions. He hails from a Communist family. Comrade also means companion and that’s the context of the title.”

The film, produced by Mythri Movie Makers and Big Ben Cinema, is the directorial debut of Bharat Kamma, an erstwhile assistant of Chandrasekhar Yeleti.

Dear Comrade, which will also be released in Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada, will hit the screens on 26 July.
