  • Chitraloka Now At 19

    Chitraloka Veeresh Image

    Chitraloka.Com enters its last teenage year on June 26. A year less than two decades ago, Chitraloka became the first dedicated website for Kannada films. This was even before some newspapers had their own websites. The oldest portal for Kannada films is still young at 19, its last teenager year. There is also something special this birthday. 

    The election to the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce is also scheduled on June 26. It is a coincidence that not only is Chitraloka celebrating its birthday on the same day, its editor KM Veeresh is contesting for the post of Treasurer in KFCC. Chitraloka has grown from being just a provider of news about Kannada films to a publisher of books about Kannada films and Kannada film personalities and a production house making Kannada films. The Chitraloka family has grown to encompass many aspects of Kannada film industry. 

    Chitraloka.Com was launched on June 26, 2000. It opened the world of Internet to the Kannada film industry and the Kannada film industry to the world. For the first time there was 'breaking news' about Kannada films. For the first time there was instant updates about Sandalwood which people from around the world could access immediately. This was long before smartphones, Apps and social media. Chitraloka became a pioneer and grew along with Sandalwood in the last two decades. 

    Chitraloka gained many credits along the way. It became the highest ranked website from Karnataka pretty early. It became the biggest repository of Kannada film photographs. Several exhibitons of the photographs have been held and twice this entered the Limca Book of Records. There were many personality specific photo exhibitions also. 

    The success of Chitraloka would not have been possible without the support of the Kannada film fans, our readers, advertisers and well wishers. Chitraloka thanks them wholeheartedly.

  • Chitraloka Now Sweet 16

    chitraloka image

    It seems just yesterday, but it has been a long and fulfilling journey of 15 years. The first Kannada film  portal, Chitraloka.com, has completed 15 years and is now 16! Along the way Chitraloka has become an indivisible part of the Kannada film industry. When we started the journey, not just websites, but Internet itself was still alien to many people even in the film industry. In the age of instant messaging and social media, it is hard to think of the time when 

    We had to take big leap of faith and launch a first-of-its kind website totally dedicated to just Kannada films. It was a time when even film news in newspapers was in black and white. Fans had to wait for some periodical to publish a colour photo of their favourite star to preserve it. Chitraloka was one of the first to recognise the rapid change in technology and the benefits it brought. It was the first in the field of films to adopt it. Today lakhs of Kannada film fans from not only Karnataka but across the globe access Chitraloka for instant and fastest news about Kannada films, its stars and its technicians. 

    During this journey, Chitraloka also managed to create two new records. It holds the Limca Book records for displaying the largest number of Kannada film stills and the stills of all Kannada films ever made. The portal is also the largest repository of Kannada film news and photos in the world. It is also home to the largest number of dedicated micro websites of individual films. Chitraloka is now available on most social media platfroms like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Linkden  and others. 

    15 years is a small part of the over 80 years of Kannada talkie films and 100 years of films being made in Karnataka. But these arguably were the most exiting 15 years and Chitraloka is proud to be part of it. In the recent years Chitraloka has ventured into promotion of Kannada films overseas and providing online solutions for film marketing. 

    16 is the age to turn more colourful and more vibrant. As Kannada films break new grounds and march boldly forward, Chitraloka is committed to present every aspect of our industry to the fans in all its glory. We at Chitraloka thank all our readers, film personalities and advertisers for their support in making this the numero uno in the field of Kannada film news and publicity.

  • CHITRALOKA – 20 IN 20 – Completes 20 years in 2020

    chitraloka 20 in 20, completes 20 years in 2020

    During early 80’s and 90’s, everyone was accustomed with the habit of reading newspaper in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea. We were so much relying on newspapers to read the content.

    Those who had interest in movies, FRIDAY was a special day. Newspapers used to carry an extra edition exclusive to movies. Friday newspapers used to sell as fast as by 8 am. The excitement of reading those pages cannot be expressed but you need to feel it. I am sure that, today’s generation will miss it. As technology advanced in late 90’s, early 2000’s, those with access to internet were looking to find information online about Kannada movies. Being a computer engineer, I was no exception to this. This was an era where lots of folks were trying to come up with their own website dedicated to Kannada movies.

    After moving to USA in 2000, I was looking for a website that would exclusively carry out the news from KFI. Search engine took me to CHITRALOKA. The name was attractive and so was the content that was up to date. I always wanted to stay update about the news in Kannada Industry.

    I met Mr. Veeresh during the making of Joke Falls in 2003. He had passion towards building something new for our Industry. Veeresh always thought of presenting new ideas. One of the biggest accomplishments, I can remember is the Kannada Film photo exhibition. Veeresh displayed stills of Kannada films from 1932 to 2006. This was first of its kind and entered Limca book of records.

    Veeresh has the credit of doing the first Kannada Film International Photo Exhibition in 2018 at California, USA. Veeresh is a photographer, film producer, journalist and has held prominent positions in Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce. He is recipient of Karnataka state award and National award for producing Kannada films.

    In December 2009, I read an article about the demise of Dr. Vishnuvardhan. I was searching on internet to get more information. I was calling everyone to get more information. Within a span of 12 hours, Veeresh had updated around dozen articles, photos, and videos. I called Veeresh to thank him for updating round the clock. Veeresh replied to me, it is his duty to update the content and no need to thank him for that.

    The thought of website is fancier and more attractive but the costs to run and maintain the website is very challenging in the back-end. Anybody can publish articles but to maintain the repository of it is the biggest challenge. The content needs to be stored and preserved and must be online at any point of time. Server storage, migration and costs are very high. You need to have your own team of reporters, photographers and be able to maintain the servers and keep all the repository for 2 decades is not an easy task.

    Chitraloka has sustained the dotcom crash, recessions and the more recent corona pandemic that has hit every industry in the world. Veeresh and his team have overcome all the hurdles for past 20 years successfully and worked hard to be the Number 1 portal for Kannada film news.

    There were several websites in those days, today you can only find handful. Chitraloka is completing 20 years this June 26, 2020. I wish Mr. Veeresh to achieve the next milestone of 25. In our movie terms, we call it as Silver Jubilee Year.

    Looking forward for the 25 in 2025. Congratulations to the entire team of

    CHITRALOKA.

  • Chitraloka's 17th Birthday Today

    chitraloka 17 years birthday

    Today, Chitraloka.Com, the first web portal completely dedicated to Kannada film news celebrates its 17th birthday. It has been a wonderful journey showcasing Kannada films, the stars of the industry, the technicians who shaped it and the way these films impacted the Kannada life and culture.

    Chitraloka started its journey when there was very little awareness of the Internet and how it would affect and shape the information delivery and publicity of films. There was no Facebook or Twitter either! Some websites would carry a few news about Kannada films but that was it. Chitraloka revolutionised this scenario by becoming the first portal for Kannada films.

    chitraloka_launch.jpg

    During the course of these 17 years, there have been many changes to Chitraloka. The largest repository of Kannada film news and Kannada film photographs are with Chitraloka. To give Kannada audience a real insight into the film industry and its personalities, Chitraloka has strived to present its unbiased news, views and reports.

    Today you can see a new layout of the portal which gives much more easy access to information and our large database. On July 3, Chitraloka will launch its mobile apps, further strengthning the bond between the film industry and its audience.

    Chitraloka is a Friend of The Industry - Dr Jayamala

    Last year, Chitraloka also ventured into producing Kannada films and produced the film 'Actor' starring Naveen Krishna. This will be a continued effort and Chitraloka will be producing one or two Kannada films every year henceforth.

    On this occasion when Chitraloka celebrates its birthday, a sincere thanks to all writers, photographers, sources and especially our web-design team and a special thanks to Me Somu, who maintains the site.

  • Chitraloka.Com 17th Birthday Celebrated

    chitraloka 17 years birthday image

    The 17th birthday of Sandalwood’s most trusted website Chitraloka.com’s 17th birthday was celebrated at KSCA on Sunday night in grand style. Ravi Hegade group editor of Udayavani, Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce president Sa Ra Govindu, past presidents H D Gangaraju, K V Chandrashekha, Thomas D’Souza, B Vijayakumar and others were present at the occasion.

    Ravi Hegade recalled the launch of Chitraloka.com and said that Chitraloka.com is not only a leading website of Kannada cinema, but also highly updated in terms of technology also. ‘Chitraloka.com has been consistently updating in terms of technology. The website has been delivering exclusive as well as breaking news from the beginning and I remember it was Chitraloka which blasted the news of Dr Rajakumar’s kidnap. Veeresh rang me in the early morning and it was he who gave me the news of Dr Rajakumar’s kidnap. Apart from that also, Chitraloka has been giving many exclusive news which even won't get. Moreover chitraloka is a industry friendly and never goes behind the controversies said Ravi Hegade.

    KFCC president Sa Ra Govindu lauded Veeresh’s effort in building the website and reaching Kannada film industry’s news to international audience. Producer Ganesh anchored the programme while, many producers including Dinesh Gandhi, Umesh Banakar, M G Ramamurthy, Ba Ma Harish, Karisubbu, Bharath Jain, Ramesh Kashyap, Ajay Kumar and others were present at the occasion.

  • Chitraloka.com Completes 20 Years, Enters 21st Year

    chitraloka.com completes 20 years

    Milestones are not new for Chitraloka.com. At the turn of the millennium on June 26, 2000, Chitraloka became the first dedicated portal for Kannada films. It was the beginning of many firsts as it notched up one milestone after another, growing together with the film industry, providing Kannada film fans with authentic first-source news and supporting Kannada films with promotions and constructive criticism. 

    In 2000, the dot com bubble burst was all around and the Y2K problem affecting the the entire world. Kannada film audience had moved to computers and the Internet in their work but the film industry was yet to adopt this medium. Chitraloka filled this gap and for years was the only link. We are proud to be the pioneers in this field. 

    Chitraloka accomplished landmark feats. Early on it became the top film website in the world. It became the repository of the largest number of Kannada film photographs. During this time, it twice entered the Limca Book of Records. 

    Twenty years is a long long time in the online world to become redundant. Chitraloka has however maintained its premier position in online Kannada films by constantly innovating. Starting with providing breaking news for Kannada films the first time to satisfying the audience's need for more information about movies, stars, their lives and lifestyles, film reviews and more, Chitraloka has always stayed ahead of the rest. We began to additionally start providing news on social media platforms apart from the main Website. The motto has always been to be available for audience anywhere they wanted information. 

    On every occasion that the film industry needed us, we were there. Be it the Amrutha Mahotsava or our personal tribute to Ambareesh with the Ambi Bimba photo exhibition, Chitraloka was at the forefront.  

    At this momentous moment where we complete a satisfying 20 years and turn 21, we at Chitraloka thank all our esteemed readers, patrons, members of the Kannada film industry, the various organisations of the industry including KFCC, KFPC, Kanfida, Workers Federation, advertisers, friends and admirers from the bottom of our hearts.
