    The inevitable is happening and is giving headaches to many Sandalwood film makers. The large number of releases awaiting  release has led to serious problems with regards to theatres. This week, four Kannada films were to release including the re-release of Om. Om released and as also Kumar Govind's Mastermind and Raincoat. But release of another film, Q, was cancelled at the last minute as enough theatres could not be mustered.

    The problem will only get bigger and messier in coming weeks as big films will face similar problems and clashes for theatres. 


    On March 20, Ambari Arjun's Raate starring Dhananjay and produced by composer V Harilrishna will be up against the hit combination of director Shashank and Ajai Rao who are ready with their Krishna-Leela. Inexplicably there are no films scheduled for the week following that.

    The biggest clash as of now seems set for April 2. Just two days ago, the team of Vaastu Prakara announced the release of the film on April 2. After months of delay, the Yograj Bhat directed, Jaggesh-Rakshit Shetty starrer finally had a release date. But the shocker for the film came all the way from Switzerland. On Friday, Sudeep who is shooting for a song for his latest film Ranna, tweeted that the film should be ready for release on April 2. This has sent the Vaastu Prakara team into a tizzy. Rakshit Shetty was seen pleading with Sudeep not to release the film on April 2. There has been no response from the Ranna team so far. But this is only the beginning. In the coming weeks, more and more big films are set for a clash at the box office.

  • The Cult Classic 'OM' Turns 25 Years Today

    the cult classic om turns 25 years today

    In a many firsts for Kannada film industry, the year 1995 was very special for several reasons with the release of its cult classic 'Om' produced under prestigious banner Poornima Enterprises starring Hat-trick hero Shivarajkumar in an entirely new avatar, a truly daring character created by Upendra based on the real underworld subject.

    It was the first movie to showcase underworld on the big screen in Kannada with equally brilliant performance by Shivanna with utmost musical brilliance from Nadabrahma Hamsalekha. 

    After his two directorial ventures, Upendra created the masterpiece which remains to this date as one of the finest despite record-breaking re-releases. For the story he penned in the 80s, Upendra casted real life gangsters in the movie, a highlight of the movie which became a sensation at national level.

    Speaking to Chitraloka, Real Star Upendra while recollecting the making of Om said that it 'just happened and that he was fortunate that the prestigious banner, a great actor like Shivanna and especially a few who recommended my work to the makers which made it possible.

    "I had made it like any other film but it is the collective effort of the entire team and the Kannada audience which made it a 'cult classic', which is why it is still loved the same way, it was first released 25 years ago," Upendra said.

    After breaking multiple records at the box, it went on to win several awards for Shivanna, Prema, Upendra and others. It was even remade in Telugu too. But, all of the most, the movie was re-released the most for any movie in the Indian film industry.

    For the first time since it released 20 years ago, the iconic film Om will be telecast on television today. It is one of the most popular films in Kannada and is expected to break small screen TRP ratings also. But the biggest danger it is posing is not to other programmes in TV but Upendra's latest film.

    OM was directed by Upendra and starred Shivarajkumar. Now Uppi's new film Uppi2 released only yesterday. The collection of the first weekend is very crucial. But it looks like Saturday's collections for the evening and night shows will be hurt by Upendra's own film Om. The television premier will extend for up to five harvesting into both the first show and second show on Saturday.
