`Mungaru Malae` much needed rain for Kannada industry! March 27, 2007Posted by nsworld in Theatre/Films.
But it is true , I decided to have a look at it only when there was a overflow of appreciation for it both in media and friends` circle. Even today I am surprised, that Ravi Belagere decided to devote his weekly`s front page to shower praises on Yogaraj Bhat (Director).
`Mungaru Male` in a nutshell, simple story, tight narration, slightly unexpected ending, good music, excellent cinemotography, great lyrics by Jayant and Yogaraj Bhat himself. Music and lyrics comparable to the standards set by `Amruthavarshini` (another great kannada hit).
Kannada audience wanted a break from the `machhu and katti ` stuff and were bored of the same faces, in that sense it was also a good timing by Yogaraj Bhat and team. Excellent performance by supporting cast and good show by Ganesh (glimpses of Rajesh Khanna here and there) and Sanjana Gandhi.
Thanks to Nagatihalli Chandrashekar for introducing a software engineer turned music director (Mano murthy) to kannada industry with his `America America`.
Coming to Economics, film has already made six times the money invested i.e. Return on capital is 6. And the audio sales has also brought in decent amount of money. Hope we will watch the Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam version of this movie soon.
