  • Chitraloka Now At 19

    Chitraloka.Com enters its last teenage year on June 26. A year less than two decades ago, Chitraloka became the first dedicated website for Kannada films. This was even before some newspapers had their own websites. The oldest portal for Kannada films is still young at 19, its last teenager year. There is also something special this birthday. 

    The election to the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce is also scheduled on June 26. It is a coincidence that not only is Chitraloka celebrating its birthday on the same day, its editor KM Veeresh is contesting for the post of Treasurer in KFCC. Chitraloka has grown from being just a provider of news about Kannada films to a publisher of books about Kannada films and Kannada film personalities and a production house making Kannada films. The Chitraloka family has grown to encompass many aspects of Kannada film industry. 

    Chitraloka.Com was launched on June 26, 2000. It opened the world of Internet to the Kannada film industry and the Kannada film industry to the world. For the first time there was 'breaking news' about Kannada films. For the first time there was instant updates about Sandalwood which people from around the world could access immediately. This was long before smartphones, Apps and social media. Chitraloka became a pioneer and grew along with Sandalwood in the last two decades. 

    Chitraloka gained many credits along the way. It became the highest ranked website from Karnataka pretty early. It became the biggest repository of Kannada film photographs. Several exhibitons of the photographs have been held and twice this entered the Limca Book of Records. There were many personality specific photo exhibitions also. 

    The success of Chitraloka would not have been possible without the support of the Kannada film fans, our readers, advertisers and well wishers. Chitraloka thanks them wholeheartedly.

  • Chitraloka Now Sweet 16

    chitraloka image

    It seems just yesterday, but it has been a long and fulfilling journey of 15 years. The first Kannada film  portal, Chitraloka.com, has completed 15 years and is now 16! Along the way Chitraloka has become an indivisible part of the Kannada film industry. When we started the journey, not just websites, but Internet itself was still alien to many people even in the film industry. In the age of instant messaging and social media, it is hard to think of the time when 

    We had to take big leap of faith and launch a first-of-its kind website totally dedicated to just Kannada films. It was a time when even film news in newspapers was in black and white. Fans had to wait for some periodical to publish a colour photo of their favourite star to preserve it. Chitraloka was one of the first to recognise the rapid change in technology and the benefits it brought. It was the first in the field of films to adopt it. Today lakhs of Kannada film fans from not only Karnataka but across the globe access Chitraloka for instant and fastest news about Kannada films, its stars and its technicians. 

    During this journey, Chitraloka also managed to create two new records. It holds the Limca Book records for displaying the largest number of Kannada film stills and the stills of all Kannada films ever made. The portal is also the largest repository of Kannada film news and photos in the world. It is also home to the largest number of dedicated micro websites of individual films. Chitraloka is now available on most social media platfroms like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Linkden  and others. 

    15 years is a small part of the over 80 years of Kannada talkie films and 100 years of films being made in Karnataka. But these arguably were the most exiting 15 years and Chitraloka is proud to be part of it. In the recent years Chitraloka has ventured into promotion of Kannada films overseas and providing online solutions for film marketing. 

    16 is the age to turn more colourful and more vibrant. As Kannada films break new grounds and march boldly forward, Chitraloka is committed to present every aspect of our industry to the fans in all its glory. We at Chitraloka thank all our readers, film personalities and advertisers for their support in making this the numero uno in the field of Kannada film news and publicity.

  • Chitraloka's 17th Birthday Today

    chitraloka 17 years birthday

    Today, Chitraloka.Com, the first web portal completely dedicated to Kannada film news celebrates its 17th birthday. It has been a wonderful journey showcasing Kannada films, the stars of the industry, the technicians who shaped it and the way these films impacted the Kannada life and culture.

    Chitraloka started its journey when there was very little awareness of the Internet and how it would affect and shape the information delivery and publicity of films. There was no Facebook or Twitter either! Some websites would carry a few news about Kannada films but that was it. Chitraloka revolutionised this scenario by becoming the first portal for Kannada films.

    During the course of these 17 years, there have been many changes to Chitraloka. The largest repository of Kannada film news and Kannada film photographs are with Chitraloka. To give Kannada audience a real insight into the film industry and its personalities, Chitraloka has strived to present its unbiased news, views and reports.

    Today you can see a new layout of the portal which gives much more easy access to information and our large database. On July 3, Chitraloka will launch its mobile apps, further strengthning the bond between the film industry and its audience.

    Last year, Chitraloka also ventured into producing Kannada films and produced the film 'Actor' starring Naveen Krishna. This will be a continued effort and Chitraloka will be producing one or two Kannada films every year henceforth.

    On this occasion when Chitraloka celebrates its birthday, a sincere thanks to all writers, photographers, sources and especially our web-design team and a special thanks to Me Somu, who maintains the site.
