Death of IAS office DK Ravi in 2015 drawn many conspiracy theories. Chambal movie which was in underplay till yesterday, the trailer which has been released yesterday raised many doubts among the viewers as this movie inspired by DK Ravi's life?
Chambal movie directed by Jacob Varghese. Satish Ninasam plays the IAS role in this film. From the release of latest stills, one can confirm that filmmaker trying the replicate the popular event from DK Ravi's life very similar to that of the stills released.
However, Satish Ninasam says that this film is about the honest IAS officer. I can't reveal much about the film at present. Teaser which has been released a couple of months back had no clues but the trailer clearly hints that the team is narrating the story of the IAS office DK Ravi.
When asked about the director, Varghese plays very cleverly and safe. I will not confirm that this is somebody's story. For instance, a child learns to draw bus or tree by watching a tree or bus. You cannot confirm it is the same bus or tree the child drew. He signs off diplomatically.
A random Video streaming site approached Chambal team with a proposal that they will play 10crores and the film will exclusively stream online without having the theatrical release. However, Varghese and Satish did not accept the proposal.
Varghese in the past made films with IAS officer as the main lead. Prithvi film which releases in 2010 wherein hero as deputy commissioner who battles against the illegal iron mafia in Bellary. Puneeth who starred in this film received praise for its realistic take on Iron Mafia.
Coming to DK Ravi's death he was found hanged in his apartment in 2015. There were many conspiracy theories surrounding the same. There many rumors that many noted politicians and big companies have their share in this death controversy. Some also said the love affair. However in 2016 CBI in its verdict stated that DK Ravi committed suicide.
