  • 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

  • My Opinion on the Biopic on Veera Madhakari - Sudeep

    Sudeep image from Vishnuvardhana movie

    Kichcha Sudeep has announced that he will make a film on Veera Madakari. This comes on the back of the announcement by Rockline Venkatesh that he is making a film with Darshan on the subject. Sudeep has said that he respects Rockline for choosing this subject but it would not stop him from making a film on the same as his team has been working on it for a year and half. Extending his support to the film by Rockline he sought support from fans for his film too. This will be the first time two films on the same personality will be made in Kannada simultaneously. 

    Here is what Sudeep has written

    It’s true that my team and I, along with a few good writers have been working on a script inspired by the life of Madhakari for about a year and half. The team has done a good amount of research and have been planning to doing this film for long. 

    The idea of wanting to make a film on Madhakari struck years back.  It took a bit for us to start work on the script,,,also inspiring me, wanting to direct again. 

    Recently it came as a surprise when another film on the same idea was announced. Obviously a vacuum prevailed before a light struck pouring some clarity that “what’s wrong in it,,,nothing” .  Anyone is eligible and anyone can make a film on history. How many times has there not been two teams,unknowingly making a film on similar story and on certain occasions  both have been successful too. 

    I don’t become the only one entitled to doing this role. Anyone is eligible to do this and I respect their team for wanting to do this film on our great Karnataka warrior. 

    It’s an incredible team lead by Rockline sir. I know his passion towards cinema and well supported by the amazing experience of Rajendra Singh sir . I for sure know they will create magic on screen. 

    This need not stop my team and me from doing what we set out for. It’s a dream too that we all want to achieve. I do not want to kill those dreams n hearts,,for, I’m not the only one who has been working for this day&night. I rather do and fail than stop now. After all I’m a Madhakari too :) .

    My best wishes and appreciations to Rockline Sir and his team and I respect them for having chosen this wonderful subject. 

    Hope my decision is respected too.

Those who watched them instead of watching the film in theatre would have resulted in a loss of at least Rs 5 crore to the film makers.

  • Politicians Fight Over Sudeep

    politicians fight over sudeep

    A fight is brewing over Sudeep's participation in election canvassing. It was reported that Sudeep will be canvassing for chief minister Siddaramaiah (Congress) in Mysuru on May 9 and also for his friend Raju Gowda (BJP). Sudeep was to canvass for them on a personal basis and not idealogically for any party. But there is too much demand for him from everyone it seems. The CM is also contesting from Badami where he is locked in a fight with BJP's Sriramulu. 

    Reacting to Sudeep's proposed canvassing in Mysuru for Siddaramaiah, he has said that Sudeep is from his community and therefore should support him instead. Sriramulu is also contesting from Molakalmuru in Chitradurga. Reacting to Sriramulu's request to Sudeep to canvass for him the incumbent Molakalmuru MLA Tippeswamy has hit back at Sriramulu. Following the controversy it is to be seen if Sudeep indeed goes for canvassing. 

    Chitraloka sources said Sudeep was supposed to go for campaign to Siddaramaiah at Mysore and not at Badami. But after this incident he may not go there. Sudeep will however be going to campaign for his friend Raju Gowda.
