yogaraj bhat,

  • 29-12-2006... ಆ ದಿನ ಆ ಚಿತ್ರವೂ ಹುಟ್ತು.. ಆ ಸ್ಟಾರ್‍ಗಳೂ ಹುಟ್ಟಿಕೊಂಡ್ರು..!

    same day that year mungaru male gave birth to many stars

    ಈಗ ಥಿಯೇಟರಿನಲ್ಲಿ, ದೇಶದಾದ್ಯಂತ ಕೆಜಿಎಫ್‍ನದ್ದೇ ಸದ್ದು. 100 ಕೋಟಿ ದಾಟಿ ಮುನ್ನುಗ್ಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ಕೆಜಿಎಫ್, ದಾಖಲೆಗಳನ್ನು ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸುತ್ತಾ ಸಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಇಂತಹ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲೇ ನೆನಪಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ. ಈ ದಿನ ಅಂದ್ರೆ ಡಿಸೆಂಬರ್ 29, ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಆದ ದಿನ. 2006ರಲ್ಲಿ ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಆಗಿದ್ದ ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ, ದಾಖಲೆಗಳ ಸುನಾಮಿಯನ್ನೇ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸಿತ್ತು. ಆ ಚಿತ್ರದಿಂದ ಕೆಲವರು ರಾತ್ರೋರಾತ್ರಿ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ಆಗಿಬಿಟ್ಟರು. ಊಹೂಂ.. ರಾತ್ರೋರಾತ್ರಿ ಅನ್ನುವುದು ತಪ್ಪಾಗಬಹುದು. ಆ ಚಿತ್ರದಿಂದ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ಆದ ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಬ್ಬರೂ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಕಾಲ ಬೆವರು ಸುರಿಸಿದ್ದರು. ತಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರತಿಭೆಗೆ ಸಾಣೆ ಹಿಡಿದಿದ್ದರು.

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ನಂ. 1 : ಯೋಗರಾಜ್ ಭಟ್

    ಆ ಚಿತ್ರದಿಂದ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ಆದವರು ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕ ಯೋಗರಾಜ ಭಟ್. ಅದು ಭಟ್ಟರ ನಿರ್ದೇಶನದ 3ನೇ ಸಿನಿಮಾ. ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ, ಮೊದಲ ಸಕ್ಸಸ್. ತಡೆದ ಮಳೆ ಜಡಿದು ಬಡಿದಿತ್ತು. ಅದಾದ ಮೇಲೆ ಭಟ್ಟರು ಹಲವು ಹಿಟ್ ಕೊಟ್ಟಿರಬಹುದು. ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆಯೇ ಬೇರೆ.

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ನಂ. 2 : ಗಣೇಶ್

    ಹುಡುಗಾಟ, ಚೆಲ್ಲಾಟದಿಂದ ಸಕ್ಸಸ್ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ್ದರೂ, ಗಣೇಶ್‍ರನ್ನು ಗೋಲ್ಡನ್ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ಆಗಿಸಿದ್ದು ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ. ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳು ಹೃದಯವನ್ನು ಪರ ಪರ ಅಂತ ಕೆರೆದುಕೊಂಡು, ಆ ಗಾಯವನ್ನು ವಾಸಿ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳೋಕೆ ಗಣೇಶ್ ಅನ್ನೋ ಮುಲಾಮು ಹಚ್ಚಿಕೊಂಡ್ರು.

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ನಂ. 3 : ಪೂಜಾ ಗಾಂಧಿ/ಸಂಜನಾ ಗಾಂಧಿ

    ಇಂದಿಗೂ ಪೂಜಾ ಗಾಂಧಿಯನ್ನು ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರು ಮಳೆ ಹುಡುಗಿ ಅಂಥಾ ಗುರುತಿಸ್ತಾರೆ. ಪೂಜಾ ಆ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಮೂಲಕ ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ನೆಲೆ ನಿಂತರು. ಕನ್ನಡತಿಯೇ ಆಗಿ ಹೋದರು. ಆ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಟೈಟಲ್ ಕಾರ್ಡ್‍ನಲ್ಲಿ ಪೂಜಾ ಗಾಂಧಿಯ ಹೆಸರು ಸಂಜನಾ ಗಾಂಧಿ ಎಂದೇ ಇತ್ತು. ನಂತರ ಅವರು ಹೆಸರು ಬದಲಿಸಿಕೊಂಡರು.

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ನಂ. 4 : ಮನೋ ಮೂರ್ತಿ

     

    ಮನೋಮೂರ್ತಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಸಕ್ಸಸ್ ಹೊಸದಾಗಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಈ ಹಿಂದೆಯೂ ಗೆದ್ದಿದದವರೇ. ಆದರೆ, ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆಯ ಗೆಲುವು, ಸಂಗೀತದ ಯಶಸ್ಸು ಕೊಟ್ಟ ಕಿರೀಟವೇ ಬೇರೆ.

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ನಂ. 5 : ಸೋನು ನಿಗಮ್

     

    ಅನಿಸುತಿದೆ ಯಾಕೋ ಇಂದು.. ಈ ಹಾಡನ್ನು ಸೋನು ನಿಗಮ್ ಅನಿಸುತಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಹಾಡಿದರೋ.. ಹನಿಸುತಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಹಾಡಿದರೋ.. ಇಂದಿಗೂ ಗೊಂದಲಗಳಿವೆ. ಅದಕ್ಕೂ ಮೊದಲು ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಸೋನು ನಿಗಮ್ ಹಾಡಿದ್ದವರೇ. ಆದರೆ, ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ, ಸೋನು ನಿಗಮ್ ಅವರಿಗೆ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರ ಹೃದಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಸ್ಥಾನ ಕೊಡಿಸಿತು.

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ನಂ. 6 - ಜಯಂತ ಕಾಯ್ಕಿಣಿ

     

    ಅಫ್‍ಕೋರ್ಸ್, ಕಾಯ್ಕಿಣಿಯವರು ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಹೊಸಬರಾಗಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಅಷ್ಟು ಹೊತ್ತಿಗಾಗಲೇ ಕಾಯ್ಕಿಣಿ, ಕನ್ನಡ ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ ಲೋಕದ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ಆಗಿದ್ದವರು. ಕೆಲವು ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಿಗೂ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದರು. ಆದರೆ, ಕಾಯ್ಕಿಣಿ ಅನ್ನೋ ಹೆಸರು ಮನೆ ಮನೆಗೂ ತಲುಪಿದ್ದು ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಮೂಲಕ.

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾ ನಂ. 7 - ಎಸ್. ಕೃಷ್ಣ

     

    ಆ ಚಿತ್ರದಿಂದ ಹುಟ್ಟಿದ್ದ ಇಬ್ಬರು ಸ್ಟಾರ್‍ಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಜೋಗದ ಜಲಪಾತ. ಮತ್ತೊಂದು ಆ ಜಲಪಾತವನ್ನು ವಿಭಿನ್ನವಾಗಿ ತೋರಿಸಿದ ಕೃಷ್ಣ. ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಛಾಯಾಗ್ರಹಕ ಕೃಷ್ಣ, ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆಯ ಅತಿ ದೊಡ್ಡ ಸ್ಟಾರ್.

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾ ನಂ. 8 - ಪ್ರೀತಂ ಗುಬ್ಬಿ

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಕಥೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಭಟ್ಟರ ಜೊತೆಗಿದ್ದವರು ಪ್ರೀತಂ ಗುಬ್ಬಿ. ಚಿತ್ರದ ನಾಯಕನ ಹೆಸರೂ ಪ್ರೀತಮ್. ಅದಾದ ಮೇಲೆ ಪ್ರೀತಮ್ ಗುಬ್ಬಿ, ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕರಾಗಿಯೂ ಗೆದ್ದರು. ಮೊದಲ ಹೆಜ್ಜೆ ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ.

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾ ನಂ. 9 - ಜಯಣ್ಣ, ಭೋಗೇಂದ್ರ

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಚಿತ್ರವನ್ನು ರಾಜ್ಯಾದ್ಯಂತ ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದು ಜಯಣ್ಣ ಮತ್ತು ಭೋಗೇಂದ್ರ ಜೋಡಿ. ಅವರಿಬ್ಬರೂ ಆಗ ತಾನೇ ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗದಲ್ಲಿ ವಿತರಕರಾಗಿ ಬೆಳೆಯುತ್ತಿದ್ದವರು. ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಚಿತ್ರ, ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಜನುಮದ ಜೋಡಿಯನ್ನು ಅದ್ಭುತವಾಗಿ ನೆಲೆ ನಿಲ್ಲುವಂತೆ ಮಾಡಿತು.

     

    ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಸ್ಟಾ ನಂ. 10 - ಇ. ಕೃಷ್ಣಪ್ಪ

     

    ಆ ಚಿತ್ರದಿಂದ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ಆದವರು ನಿರ್ಮಾಪಕ ಇ. ಕೃಷ್ಣಪ್ಪ. ಮುಂಗಾರು ಮಳೆ ಮಾಡುವ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ ಭಟ್ಟರಾಗಲೀ, ಗಣೇಶ್ ಆಗಲೀ ದೊಡ್ಡ ಸ್ಟಾರ್‍ಗಳಲ್ಲ. ಈಗ ಬಿಡಿ.. ಇಬ್ಬರಿಗೂ ತಮ್ಮ ಹೆಸರಿನಿಂದಲೇ ಚಿತ್ರವನ್ನು ಥಿಯೇಟರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಲ್ಲಿಸುವ ಶಕ್ತಿಯಿದೆ. ಆದರೆ.. 12 ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಹಿಂದೆ ಹೀಗಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಇವತ್ತಿನ ಈ ಅಷ್ಟೂ ಸ್ಟಾರ್‍ಗಳ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಕರ್ತ ಇ. ಕೃಷ್ಣಪ್ಪ ಎಂದರೆ ತಪ್ಪಾಗಲಿಕ್ಕಿಲ್ಲ.

  • Bhatt Likely To Remake 'Panchatantra' In Telugu

    bhatt likely to remkae panchatantra in telugu

    Yogaraj Bhatt's 'Panchatantra' which was released on Friday across Karnataka is getting good response all over. Meanwhile, Bhatt has said that the film might not only be remade in Telugu, but he himself may direct the Telugu version of 'Panchatantra' in the coming days.

    'Panchatantra' is getting dubbing and remake inquiries from other languages and there is a proposal from a Telugu producer to remake the film in Telugu. The producer is also planning to rope in Yogaraj Bhatt to direct the film in Telugu. Bhatt has also fixed the title of the film and has named the film as 'Andhra versus Telangana'. While Andhra represents the elders in the film, Telangana represents youngsters.

    More details about the film is yet awaited.

  • Dana Kayonu Songs on April 10th

    dana kayonuu image

    The post production of Vijay starrer 'Dana Kayonu' which is directed by Yogaraj Bhatt is almost complete and the team is all set to release the songs of the film on the 10th of April. V Harikrishna has composed the songs of the film.

    'Dana Kayonu' is produced by Kanakapura Srinivas under the R S Productions banner. Yogaraj Bhatt himself has written the story, screenplay and dialogues apart from directing the film. Sugnan is the cameraman.

  • Dana Kayonu Songs Released

    dana kayonu image

    The songs of Vijay starrer 'Dana Kayonu' was released amidst much fan fare in Kanakapura on Friday night. Actress Rachita Ram, distributor Basha released the songs of the film. If everything had gone right, then Power Minister D K Shivakumar was supposed to release the audio of the film. However, D K Shivakumar and his brother D K Suresh were absent for the audio release.

    Even Vijay and Priyamani were not present during the occasion. In their absence, Rachita Ram released the audio. Director Yogaraj Bhatt and Kanakapura Srinivas were present.

  • Danakayonu Vs Bharjari

    danakayonu vs bharjari

    Director Yograj Bhat has written to concerned authorities that the producer of Danakayonu Kanakapura Srinivas has withheld the payment pending to him and other persons who have worked for the film. This was promised to be paid before the release of the film Bharjari but it has not been done. This complaint has put a question mark on the release of the new film Bharjari next week. Yograj Bhat has alleged that the tax free certificate of the film has not been signed by the concerned authorities but even then the producer's share of the box office collection has been withdrawn from theatres by the producers. He has said that he does not know if it is legal and proper but the authorities should look into it. He has said that the producer owes him Rs 24.5 lakh in arrears. 

    Yograj Bhat has pleaded with the authorities and the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce to force the producer to pay the dues to him and the other technicians including cinematographer Sugnan. Danakayonu released in October last year and had a decent run at the box office. The problems between the producer on the one side and the director and other technicians had not come out in the open till now. 

    After Yograj Bhat's complaint the Information Department has replied that the producer has not applied for the 100 per cent tax exemption certificate. Now it is surprising if the producer has indeed managed to take his share of the box office collection without the certificate in hand. If he has managed to as Bhat alleges it would be a major wrong and the producer will be in trouble. 

     

  • Diganth Runs In Fancy In Yogaraj Bhatt Film

    actor diganth

    A publicity photo released by Yogaraj Movies shows actor Diganth, in what appears to be, completely nude. The actor is running on a road and his private parts are blacked out. This is the first look of the film Parapancha directed by Krish Joshi and under the Yograj Bhat banner.

    This is not the first time Diganth has found himself in such a photograph. In Dev S/o Mudde Gowda, the film's title covered his private parts while his pants were shown down. This had created huge controversy and had to be later withdrawn. But the photo from Parapancha goes a step further and looks like a fully nude scene by an actor in Kannada for the first time.

  • Film Critic Shyam Prasad Acting Debut

    Journalists turning film producers, directors, script writers is not new to any film industry. Here is the latest addition but as an actor! S Shyam Prasad is a legal reporter in a Bengaluru newspaper and also a film journalist who writes about Kannada films. He is also a film critic reviewing Kannada films. A surprise on Saturday evening at the launch of Yograj Bhat produced and Krish Joshi directed Parapancha was Shyam's photo in the trailer.

    Film sources said Bhat asked him to essay the small character in the film. Shyam has also written dialogues for Garshane and C/oFootpath2 earlier. Journalists who have acted and made a mark as actors in recent years are RG Vijayasarathi and Yethiraj.

    Chitraloka editor KM Veeresh is also a Kannada film producer and distributor.

  • I Love You To Clash With Panchatantra

    i love you to clash with panchatantantra movie

    Two of the big upcoming films, I Love You starring Upendra and directed by R Chandru and Panchatantra directed by Yogaraj Bhat will clash at the box office. Both films will release on February 14. The release date of I Love You was announced last week.

    The audio launch of the film is this week. Meanwhile Panchatantra has finalised on the release date now. The clash of expected films is inevitable in the next few months as there are a huge number of big films lined up for release. This is the first high profile clash of 2019. But audience can expect more such offerings in the weeks to come.

  • I watched Panchatantra and was bowled - KM Veeresh

    i watched panchatantra and was bowled

    The post production work on Panchatantra is underway. The shooting was completed sometime ago and the editing has also been locked. Some graphic work, background  score and other works are underway. 

    At this juncture, I got the opportunity to watch some portions of the film. It is stunning to say the least. This is the first film of Yograj Bhat that is not completely a romantic film. Most of his films have romance as the basic subject. In Panchatantra  the subject is sports and action though there is a romantic angle also. The action portions I watched were some of the best I have seen in Kannada films. 

    These are not the regular fights between hero and the villains. The action is more on the dirt tracks. Race car zoom across in a thrilling encounter which is to be seen to be believed. The pulse-racing adventure has been brilliantly captured and choreographed. It is a thriller and adrenaline pumping feast. 

    When I interacted with Yograj Bhat after watching the film's scenes, I was wonder struck by how passionate he still is about every aspect of the film making process. Most fans are addicted to the lyrics he writes for his own films and those of other films. He has made 14 films in 14 years. It is just one film per year. That means, fans have to wait a long time for every new offering. That is because he invests so much time and effort in each film he makes. 

    For Panchatantra he took the story from his team. He usually writes the story for his own films but has given a break to that this time. Panchatantra, from what I have seen so far, is quite unlike any film of Yograj Bhat or for that matter most films in Sandalwood. 

    For starters it is one of the rare films on sports in Kannada. We have so many films on sports coming in Hindi in recent years. Stories of real sportspersons are being adapted to films frequently. That is missing in other language films in India. Though Panchantra is not about a real sports person it is about a sport that is not often featured in films. 

    The film required a great deal of help for professionals of motorsport. You cannot just bring a sports car driven on dirt tracks and put an actor into it and start shooting. I could only imagine the effort gone into making these portions of the film. Speaking to Bhat, I realised that the effort was much more than I imagined. There are very interesting stories about the making of the film which I will reveal regularly on Chitraloka.com.

  • Kendasampige Trailer Released

  • MuguluNage Movie Review - Chitraloka Rating 4/5

    mugulunage image

    Since the last 10 years when Mungaru Male was made, hundreds of directors actors and technicians have tried to make the next Mungaru Male. There was also an attempt to make Mungaru Male part 2, but none of these films reached the peak in excellence or the box office collection of the original film. Finally there is a film that matches the intensity and emotional touch of Mungaru Male. It is none other than Mugulu Nage. Not surprisingly it is director Yograj Bhat and actor Ganesh who are together again in this film.

    Mughal Nage should rank among one of the best movies in the careers of Yograj Bhat and Ganesh. The film is not only an emotional journey but an entertaining feast for the audience. The film chronicles the journey of a young man in the ups and downs of his journey in his relationship with four different girls.

    The film takes the audience through various moods even as the various shooting locations pass through the screen like Mysore-Bangalore, Pondicherry and coastal Karnataka. Each of the four heroines in the film brings out various personality traits of the lead actor in this film. Ganesh plays the role of Pulkeshi an engineer. He has a strange problem. He has been unable to crying since he was born. As his relationship with the various girls he comes in contact with takes a turn for the worse is it possible for him to remain like this throughout his life? That is the philosophical question Yograj Bhat answers in this mesmerizing film.

    It would be a mistake to reveal the story of the film. It would be best enjoyed watching it on the screen. There is not one but four different stories that combined together to bring about the idea Yogaraj Bhat wants to convey.

    The characters created by the director are enchanting and will stay in the minds of the audience for a very long time. As usual the dialogues written by him are peppy and interesting. Ganesh gets a role of a lifetime it is one of the best roles has done since Mungaru Male.

    Apart from a good story, good cinematography and good dialogues the film also has beautiful music. The song have been composed by Hari Krishna and the lyrics are by Yograj Bhat and Jayanth Kaikini. The cinematography is a big plus point for the film. Sugnaan has come out with beautiful camera work.

    Apart from Ganesh the four leading ladies have done a wonderful job in the acting department. The supporting cast is also very good.

    Chitraloka Rating - 4/5

  • Panchatantra review: Chitraloka Rating 4/ 5

    panchatantra movie review

    Director Yogaraj Bhat is back with yet another masterpiece, and this time he dwells upon the mindsets of two different generations - one which is full of youth but lacks maturity and other comprising the gang of senior citizens who are mischievous by nature. The value addition to it comes in the form of a care race due to which Panchatantra wins the entertaining game in the end.

    This one is filled with every typical element, which the Yogaraj Bhat fans can ask for. From his typical dialogues, songs to humour and emotional content, the director has spared none to make it a complete family entertainer. Plus the adventurous race in the second half makes it a must watch film.

    On the outset, it is a simple tale which is inspired from the Hare and the Tortoise story from Aesop's fable, which emphasises the value of being slow and steady in achieving one's goal. Pegged around it, Bhat's Panchatantra has two rival gangs fighting it out for supremacy. The younger lot is headed by Karthik played by Vihan Gowda and and the elderly gang headed by Raganna played by Rangayana Raghu.

    With a property dispute as the epicenter, the two gang fight it out to claim the ownership of it. The escapades during the process of pulling each other's leg gives Panchatantra the much needed punch for a joyful ride. In between there is a love story of Karthik and Sahitya, the daughter of Raganna. 

    When Raganna finds about his daughter's love affair, the furious clash leads to an unusual challenge. The two gang then legally agree on a car race. The one who wins the race gets the property and Karthik gets his girl too. Vihaan, Akshara, Sonal and the gang puts up a formidable performance and the Rangayana Raghu, Kari Subbu and their experienced gang are at their usual best.

    V. Harikrishna scores a couple of soothing romantic song along with the unusual ones penned by the director himself.

    After all the laughter ride, the second half is about the car race and how the director smartly webs the age old value and its moral lessons is the essence of it. Watch it without fail to know who wins the race in the end.
