About Krack Movie:

On 26 October 2019, Ravi Teja announced his 66th film as an actor with the tentative title RT 66, which would be directed by Gopichand Malineni, marking the third collaboration between Teja and Malineni after their previous films Don Seenu (2010) and Balupu (2013).

Prior to the commencement of the shoot, Gopichand Malieni claimed the film was neither inspired by nor a remake of any film. He described it as “an original story based on several true incidents that happened in the Telugu states.”[

On 14 November 2019, the makers announced the title of the film as Krack.

Shruti Haasan was chosen as the lead actress alongside Ravi Teja, making it their second collaboration after Balupu. Originally, she took a break from acting in Telugu films, after Pawan Kalyan’s Katamarayudu (2017), made her comeback in the Telugu film industry with this film.

The film was launched on 14 November 2019 at the Film Nagar Temple. Producer Allu Aravind attended as the chief guest and did the honours.

The principal photography commenced on 21 November 2019 in Ramoji Film City. Around late November, the makers filmed a Jatara episode featuring Ravi Teja and hundreds of supporting actors.

During the shoot in early January 2020, director A. R. Murugadoss visited the film’s sets in Hyderabad. The film’s shoot was further interrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in India.

On 7 October 2020, Ravi Teja announced that he had resumed the shooting of the film at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, after lockdown, adhering to the safety guidelines imposed by the government in order to curb the coronavirus pandemic.

On 15 October, the makers filmed a song shoot, featuring Anketa Maharana and Teja and the song being choreographed by Jani Master. Varalakshmi Sarathkumar completed her portions in late October.

On 2 December, Ravi Teja tweeted about the final schedule of the film held in Goa, which features a song shoot choreographed by Raju Sundaram. Filming wrapped up on 5 December 2020.

Krack was scheduled to release theatrically on 8 May 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The director Gopichand Malineni clarified that the film will be scheduled for a theatrical release after rumours regarding the film’s release on OTT platforms surfaced. On 26 October 2020, the makers announced that the film will release theatrically during the occasion of Sankranthi.

Krack was released theatrically on 9 January 2021 and opened to positive reviews from critics. The film was a Blockbuster, grossing ₹70.6 crore at the box office. and went on to become the highest-grossing film in Teja’s career until it was surpassed by Dhamaka (2022).

The film was released on OTT platform Aha on 6 February 2021. The satellite rights of the film were acquired by Star Maa, premiered on 14 March 2021, and registered an average TRP rating of 11.7. The Hindi version premiered first on Miniplex TV channel on 4 June 2021 and then on Zee Cinema on 27 June 2021. However, the dubbing of the Hindi dub premiered on Miniplex was panned by the viewers, especially that of Ravi Teja’s. The second Hindi dub with Amar Babaria’s voice for Ravi Teja was premiered on Zee Cinema. The Tamil version of the film was telecast through Zee Tamil on 1 August 2021.

Despite no copyright issues, the song “Balega Tagilyave Bangaram” composed by Thaman, was criticized for allegedly copying the tunes from a Latin song “Selva”.

Another allegation was raised stating that the “Mass Biryani” song has similar tunes to the song “Kajal Chellivaa” of the 2013 Telugu film Balupu, which was composed by himself starring same trio, Ravi Teja, Shruti Haasan, and Gopichand Malineni.
