`Mungaru Malae` much needed rain for Kannada industry! March 27, 2007

Posted by nsworld in Theatre/Films.

mungaru_male_21.jpgIs it too late to write about `Mungaru Malae`, that too when the media is overflowing with the stories of its making, success and its after effects? I don`t know .

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.

Heard a lot about the movie from all the people i know and recommendation from overseas too…but have had many aborted attempts to watch the movie myself…but have been watching one or the other video of the songs everyday from the day the movie is released. The songs have been pened very well, my personal fav being the tounge twister ” mungaru maleyee”. The one thing about this release is it seems it has attracted all types of crowd, some of my friends who never watch kannada movie(being a kannadiga)has seen it…As you say Prasad, the songs which has appealled long after Amruthavarshini and America America…

I agree that the songs are very nice in this movie, but the disappointing factor not only in this movie but kannada movies in general is we need hindi playback singers to make these songs sound good. Dont we have good singers out here?? i know music doesn’t have any boundaries but motivate the local talent at the same time. One question i have to ask is how many of south indian singers have made it to bollywood??

If you listen to few of the songs sung by sonu nigam in kannada movies, the pronounciation is very pathetic for example Anisutide from Mungaru male where he forgets the “aum kara” everytime.

mungaru male is a nice film…but not that good.its a tragidy….rather it could be a happy ending love story…no doubt the story is very realistic but still its a movie…so it should be like a movie…not a real thing
