Hyderabad: Zee Telugu brings the World Television Premiere of one of 2021’s critically acclaimed films, ‘Vakeel Saab’ on 18th July at 6:00 PM.
Produced by Boney Kapoor and Dil Raju, the film features Prakash Raj, Nivetha Thomas, Anjali and Ananya Nagalla in the lead roles.
Vakeel Saab is a powerful statement on the existing feudal mindset of the majority of India, where men and women are judged by different yardsticks. And if the man happens to be from a powerful family, then the fight for justice is even more skewed. As it happens here, Pallavi (Nivetha Thomas), Zareena (Anjali), and Divya (Ananya) are roommates in Hyderabad. One night, while coming back from a party, they are left stranded in the outskirts of the city when their cab breaks down. Pallavi’s childhood friend, who is on his way to the resort along with his friends, gives them a lift, however, they end up going to a resort. Moments later, Pallavi, Zareena and Anaya run out of the resort and Vamsi (Vamsi Krishna), an MP’s son, is hospitalized with a severe injury. The rest of the film is about how the life of the three women changes after this incident, and how a lawyer, Konidela Satyadev (Pawan Kalyan) comes to their rescue.
The three women stand as a voice of countless women as they are seen in the predicament of emotional and physical abuses that a common girl perhaps would go through in reality. With a strong motive of voicing out the opinion with a ‘No means No’ slogan whether a woman is a wife, slave, or a sex-worker, if she says ‘NO’ to being touched, then no man has the right to force himself on her or outrage her modesty.
Watch the World Television Premiere of ‘Vakeel Saab’ on 18th July at 6:00 PM only on Zee Telugu and Zee Telugu HD.
