Vishal became popular with the Telugu audience after his Tamil films were dubbed into Telugu and ran successfully in the theatres. Pandem Kodi, Pogaru and Bhayya were hits at the box office.
Salute is a bilingual film made in Telugu and Tamil simultaneously. In one way it may considered as the first straight Telugu film for Vishal.
The story of Salute deals with an upright Police Officer Sathyam(Vishal), who always goes by the rule book and never spares any criminal. In the line of his duty, he rubs someone(Upendra) on the wrong side, which causes enmity between the two. This rupture between Sathyam and his antagonist creates lots of hurdles for him and he faces them with courage.
Professionally, Sathyam meets a TV journalist Divya(Nayanatara), who helps him through her own journalistic investigations. Both of them develop an affectionate intimacy between themselves.
The rest of the story deals with Sathyam bringing to book the antagonist and uniting with his lady love.
The film also stars Upendra, Ravi Kale, Brahmanandam, Ali, Tanikella Bharani, Hema, Apoorva and others.
Salute is said to be a high budget film and the fight sequences and songs are said to have been picturised in a highly stylized manner.
The cast, crew and the makers of the film along with trade circles and the audience have high expectations about Salute.
Salute hits the marquee on August 14.
