    Last Friday the horror film Chandrika released and is doing good business. This Friday another horror film Tammisra is releasing. But this is only the beginning. There are some 15 to 20 horror films that are in various stages of production in Sandalwood. Even big stars are getting into horror with Upendra's next said to be Kalpana 2, the sequel to the horror film Kalpana. 

    Other horror films coming up include Alone, Naani, Danger Zone, Dhigbhayam, Jwalantam, Shiradi Ghat, Kanchana and Last Bus. 

    Meanwhile the horror film that is leading this pack is doing good at the box office. Chandrika collected Rs 1.15 lakh in Abhinay theatre on its opening day Friday. Many people who did not want to release Kannada films released in that theatre were surprised. There were no shows on Saturday due to the Karnataka bandh. On Sunday the film collected Rs 1.5 lakh from Abhinaya. The film is also maintaining good collections in the rest of the theatres in Bengaluru and Karnataka. This could prove helpful to other horror films that are coming up for release.

  • Chandrika Movie Review

    Chandrika movie image

    Chandrika staring Karthik Jayaram, Srimukhi, Kamna Jethmalani, Girish Karnad and others is an entertaining film in the horror genre. But it is not only about horror, the film also has family drama and lots of entertainment. 

    Director Yogesh combines good aspects of story and narration. JK plays a painter. He buys the house of his teacher. He and his wife go to live there. But there is something sinister lurking inside. Srimukhi is possessed and JK seems to know of a past that even he cannot fully comprehend.

    The film is also a musical with Gunwanth coming up with some melodious tunes.

    JK gives a wonderful performance but it is  Srimukhi who steals the show with her performance. She is glamorous when it is needed and scary when required. Girish Karnad has one of the best roles.

    Chandrika reminds of Apthamitra and follows a similar trajectory in screenplay. The film can be watched by the entire family as it has  UA certificate. Go enjoy and get scared and entertained.

    Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5

  • Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli Movie Review

    Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli image

    The current trend in Sandalwood is of horror films and many horror films have been released off late. This week's release 'Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli' comes as a fresh air with lot of entertainment ingredients tucked in it.

    'Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli' tells the story of two youths Jayasurya (Vikram Arya) and Indra (Chikkanna) who plans to commit suicide unable to face their personal problems. Somehow they are saved and given a job of Loan Recovery agents of a bank. They are given an assignment to recover a big loan from an underworld don. What all does the duo do to recover the loan from the don must be seen in theaters near you.

    The title suggests that it is a comic film. However, 'TBPH' cannot be termed as a comedy film alone. The first half of the film is comic and the second half turns to be a serious with loads of sentiments. While the first half makes the people laugh, the second half surely turns the audience sentimental.

    Vikram Arya makes his debut through this film and he has done a commendable job in his first film itself. Arya's acting and dancing skill are quite promising. Chikkanna does a good job. However, it is Shobharaj who does a wonderful job in acting. Bullet Prakash is wasted. Nikitha and Aman Grewal has nothing much to do. Vijayabharathi's songs are wonderfully picturised by cameraman Manu.

    Chitraloka Rating - 3/5


    'TBPH' is a good watch. Don't miss this one.
