    Last Friday's release Godhi  Banna Saadarana Maikattu is turning out to be a sensation. After winning ample praise from critics,  the film is now attracting audience in large number who seem to have been smitten by it.

    Almost everyone who has seen the film is vouching for a state or national award for Anant  Nag. The acting apart the film's sentiments seem to have endeared itself to the audience. The film directed by Hemanth Rao is seeing increase in shows since Friday.

    On Saturday and Sunday there are more shows for the film than they were on Friday. The collection at box office were more on Saturday  and by the bookings,  it seems like Sunday will be much better.

  • March 22 Movie Review; Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5

    march 22

    Kodlu Ramakrishna is one director who has a great knack for doing commercial films as well as issue based films. His first film 'Udbhava' was a fine example to that and his latest film 'March 22' is one more added feather to his cap.

    As the title itself suggests, the film tells the story about the importance of water. 'March 22' is celebrated as the International Water Day and the film not only tells about the water crisis, but also suggests about the conservation of water.

    The film tells the story of the people of a village, which lives in harmony. The village faces a drought continuously for five years and the people invites a geologist to search for water in the village. After much search, the geologist finds water in a masjid. If the water has to be taken out, the masjid has to be torn down for which the people objects. What happens next forms the crux of the film.

    Kodlu has been talking about the subject for many years and has released the film in the right time. The film not only talks about the conservation of water, but also about communal harmony. The film talks about life is bigger than any religion and caste and the film celebrates life. Indeed a fine and timely attempt by Kodlu and his entire team.

    The film has a huge star cast and it is Sharath Lohitashwa, Vinaya Prasad, Jaijagadish and others who walks away with all honours with their performances. Ananthnag has a small role, but makes a great impact on the audience with his performance. Mohan's camerawork is great and Manikanth Kadri's and Ravishekar songs are a treat to the audience.

    A film worth watch. Don't miss the film.

    ಗೌರವ ಡಾಕ್ಟರೇಟ್ ಸ್ವೀಕರಿಸಿ ಮಾತನಾಡಿದ ಅನಂತ್ ನಾಗ್ ನನಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಆಸೆಯಿಲ್ಲ. ನನ್ನ ಮಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಹೆಂಡತಿ ಒತ್ತಾಯ ಮಾಡಿದರು. ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ಈ ಪದವಿಯನ್ನು ಒಪ್ಪಿಕೊಂಡೆ. ಇಂಥದ್ದೊಂದು ಗೌರವ ಸಿಗುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾರಣ ಕನ್ನಡ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ರಂಗ. ಇಂತಹ ರಂಗವನ್ನು ಬೆಳೆಸಿದವರು ಡಾ.ರಾಜ್ ಕುಮಾರ್ ಎಂದು ನೆನಪಿಸಿಕೊಂಡರು.

    8ನೇ ತರಗತಿವರೆಗೂ ಕನ್ನಡ ಮಾಧ್ಯಮದಲ್ಲೇ ಓದಿದವನು. ಆನಂತರ ಮುಂಬೈಗೆ ಹೋಗಿ ಆಂಗ್ಲ ಮಾಧ್ಯಮ ಸೇರಿಕೊಂಡೆ. ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಕಾರಣಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಓದಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಹಿಂದೆ ಬಿದ್ದೆ. ಹೊನ್ನಾವರದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದುವಾಗ ನನ್ನದು ಕನ್ನಡ ಮಾಧ್ಯಮವಾಗಿತ್ತು ಎಂದು ನೆನಪಿಸಿಕೊಂಡರು. ಮುಂಬೈ ದಿನಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ತಾವು ಕಂಡಂತಹ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ರಂಗ ಹಾಗೂ ಒಡನಾಡಿದ ದಿಗ್ಗಜರ ಬಗ್ಗೆಯೂ ಮಾತನಾಡಿದರು.
