  • Box Office Collection For Mukunda Murari And Santhu Straight Forward - Exclusive

    box office collection of mukunda murari and santhu straight forward

    Last week's releases: Sudeep, Upendra starrer Mukunda Murari and Yash starrer Santhu Straight Forward had created lot of curiosity not only in the film industry circles but also with the audience.

    There was lot of expectations for both the movies and both movies are doing very good collections at the box office. According to Gandhinagar trade pundits Mukunda Murari will collect around 10 crores share to the producers and Santhu Straight Forward will collect around Rs 12 crores to producer in the first week. They said releasing both the star movies on the same day was both an advantage and also a disadvantage. The advantage is that almost all screens in Karnataka are screening Kannada films. The disadvantage is that with the clash of the big producers each producer may lose around Rs 2-3 crores in the first week. Each of these films would have collected an additional Rs 2 crore each if released solo.

    Speaking to Chitraloka Santhu producer K Manju said he is very happy with the response for the movie. "Distributor Jayanna said this movie may not do the collections what we had got from Masterpiece in the first week, but definitely it will cross more than Rs 10 crores in the first week," he said.

    Mukunda Murari BKT distributor Jack Manju told Mukunda is doing very well. The reports coming is very good. It will pick up in the second week since family audience are turning towards the theaters.

    buguri image, uppi 2 image

    Everyone in Sandalwood is surprised that Ganesh's new film Buguri is clashing with Upendra's Uppi2 which is one of the most anticipated films of the year in Kannada. Both films have announed to be released on August 14. But sourcses say the Buguri team did not expect Uppi2 to be released in August and was in the hope that Upendra would release the film on his birthday in September. But it came as a surprise to them when the film was even censored a few days ago. The August 14 release became official.

    But by then Burugui's release plan had also been finalised. However now the team is facing a crunch of theatres. Most single screens have been booked for Uppi2 and Buguri is not finding enough theatres. If the release plans go ahead it would be one of the rare clashes between to stars in Sandalwood.

     

  • Complaint Against Puneeth, Upendra And Darshan In Tamil Nadu

    darshan, puneeth, upendra image

    An advocate from Tamil Nadu has filed a complaint in the magistrate court in Coimbatore urging the court to direct filing of a case against Kannada actors Puneeth Rajkumar, Upendra and Darshan. It has been alleged that these three actors provoked Kannada people to riot in the Kaveri water dispute last week by their speeches. The lawyer has requested the court to impose sedition charges against the Kannada actors. Sedition charges under Indian Penal Code is a controversial topic in India.

    The complaint was filed before the court by P Elangovan, president of Tamil Desiya Peravai. He has claimed that the Kannada actors provoked Kannadigas to riot and cause harm to Tamilians in Karnataka.

    IPC Section 124 (A) says: "Sedition — Whoever, by words, either spoken or written, or by signs, or by visible representation, or otherwise, brings or attempts to bring into hatred or contempt, or excites or attempts to excite disaffection towards, the Government established by law in India, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, to which fine may be added, or with imprisonment which may extend to three years, to which fine may be added, or with fine."

  • Hollywood Movie Review

    hollywood image

    The eagerly expected Kannada film ‘Hollywood’ an opulently made film with a budget of Rs.7 crore is not as expected. There are exotic locations – a real feast to the eyes. There is Melkote Seenu (a Monkey) and three Upendras plus Ananthnag. The redeeming features of this film are very little. Director Dinesh Baboo easily takes the viewers for granted. He has not answered a few questions he puts on the big screen. What happened to the safety locker 164 that contained the chip? How did robot Upendra managed to function after just throwing the chip?

    It is a lavishly made film no doubt. The presence of an expensive producer the brilliant Upendra and stylish cum thinker Dinesh Baboo could have given something more than what is done in ‘Hollywood’.

    The script done by Upendra has got no earthshaking element in it. One Upendra is timid. He wants to win his lover. Another Upendra is fire in his attitude. He wants to produce a film in ‘Hollywood’ and get an Oscar. The heroine is behind this director Upendra. The timid Upendra in order to win the heart of his lover ask for the help of his boss. The boss immediately makes a robot Upendra. And the confusion starts. By the time everything is sorted with heroine Felicity the robot Upendra fights against goons and go in to pieces on earth when he comes in to contact with electricity. In between there is a monkey that is studying all the developments and the voice over for it (done by Ramesh Bhat) is only laughing element in the film.

    There are all faces of Upendra. How does he look like in various mental make -up? Felicity is a mismatch. The photography is a classic part of this film. Ananthnag looks very funny. Pass marks to Melkote Seenu alias Lakshmi a monkey hired from Chennai. Remaining marks to actor Ramesh Bhat for matching the voice to monkey.

    Mr Ramu the proud producer of Kannada filmdom – you have given a lavish film without working on the script and scintillating elements.

  • Jaggesh Kicks up a Storm in Twitter Cup

    jaggesh, upendra image

    Uppi 2 has encountered its second controversy in two weeks. The most ambitious film of Upendra in 15 years was first alleged for copying someone's story. But after legal action was contemplated the allegations stopped. But the new controversy is about a song written and sung by Upendra.

    The album was launched on Friday evening. On Sunday morning Jaggesh commented about a particular song without naming the film or Upendra. But fans online were quick to make the connection. While some supported Jaggesh's comments, others were not amused. Though their association is old and started with Upendra turning director with Tarle Nan Maga, the relationship has not always been cordial.

    As of now there is a storm brewing online about Jaggesh's comment. Even outside fans of few other actors are not very happy. The lines in the song are being seen as pointing fingers at Shivarajkumar, Yash and others.

    Ironically the song is about leg pulling! It was meant to be that. As of now no other actor has taken exception and things May cool down. An unwanted controversy is the last thing Sandalwood needs.

    Uppi's latest is the sequel to his earlier horror-comedy Kalpana. This is also the remake of the Tamil film Kanchana 2. Upendra has already been seen in this kind of film and this film takes the entertainment value two steps ahead. With Arjun Janya's brilliant music, a story that has so many twists and turns, mind blowing acting by Upendra, Priyamani and Avantika Shetty, the film is a treat for fans and a happy outing for the family to theatres. But it has been given an A certificate by the Censor Board so viewer discretion is advised. Young children may have to avoid it.

  • Mukunda Murari Review

    mukunda murmari movie image

    The much awaited multistarrer Mukunda Murari is here and the film turns out to be not just entertaining and fun as promised but also has a deep and profound message for the society. Though it is a serious subject in the undercurrent the story itself has a fun element told in an impassioned but fun style.

    The film is about an atheist who files a case against Gods because the insurance company is not paying him insurance because his shop was destroyed in an earthquake. Since the earthquake is not man made but made by God, he cannot get insurance. This impossible case is the crux of the story and Mukunda faces lots of trouble from priests of all religions for his case. Another impossible thing happens as God himself comes to the rescue of Mukunda. 

    This plot has lots of fun. Be it situations, incidents or dialogues, there is fun in everything. Apart from that there is a critique of the organised religions and how they have forsaken humanism for the sake of ritualistic religious practices.  But it does not hurt anybody's religious sentiments but only strengthens realistic attitude and love for every human being. Unlike many films which become philosophical and make no sense to the common man, Mukunda Murari is seriously funny while tackling a serious subject. 

    It is a role tailor-made for Upendra. And his mannerisms and dialogue delivery makes it so believable. It reminds of Upendra from A,  Upendra and Rakta Kanneru. It is a brilliant performance from him. 

    Sudeep is in an extended guest role as Krishna Murari. He looks the part always wearing a smile. This is a role that may well be among those remembered in his entire career as a landmark. Together Upendra and Sudeep make for a deadly combination. 

    On the technical front the camera work is awesome. There aren't many songs but those that are are very apt. Thankfully there are no duets or item songs.

    Mukunda Murari is one of the best films of the year and a very good story which has a message for the society. It is one of those rare films that will be entertaining for all age groups. Don't dare to miss it.

    Chitraloka Rating - 3.5/5
