New-age Telugu film 'Pressure Cooker' featuring Sai Ronak and Preethi Asrani, is helmed by Sujoi & Sushil and set to the hit the screens on February 21.
"It is a story of a youngster whose US dreams get shattered when his Visa is rejected and the pressure he undergoes thereafter," said the director duo, who claim that it is a collection of various real-life experiences and a bit of fiction too.
"We have taken a few cinematic liberties to make an entertainer," they add. They also wanted to expose the mindset of middle-class families as well. "A middle class family takes pride in boasting that there son is in Chicago, irrespective of what he doing is doing there. We intend to burst such bubbles," they inform.
Instead of resorting to preaching, they preferred to adopt satirical humour to convey their point. "We can't tolerate preaching ourselves," quips the duo. "Besides evoking laughter, we are relying on strong family bonding in the movie and it holds second half well," they add.
Justifying the fancy title, "People who are in stress tend to say that their life is like living in a pressure cooker. Later, we saw such reference in Hindi film '3 Idiots," they point out.
The duo claim that families believe that sending their son or daughter to US has become more of a prestige issue these days.
"More than academic advancement or job elevation, families' fascination for US is more to do with pride and prestige. "
