  • 10 Years Without Rajkumar

    It is exactly 10 years ago that Karnataka lost one of its most popular personalities who strode like a colossus in the minds of its people. Even today, a decade later, the memory and influence of the personality is still there. Dr Rajkumar may not be physically present among us today, but the legacy he left behind, the cultural impact he had on the Kannadigas and the influence of his character can be experienced even today and there is no doubt in the coming many years.

    On the other hand, Dr Rajkumar's absence is felt severely by the film industry. His leadership was unassuming but effective. He was not an elected leader of the film industry but everyone would accept his wisdom and he was the last resort for any big problem. One word from him and everyone would follow it like a command. That is the kind of respect he had. But today, the film industry finds itself like a lost kid. Be it any issue or any other demand it has from the government or anyone else, it has to plead. So everyone says, "If only Rajkumar was alive," because if he had asked for anything to be done, it would be done.

    When people still talk about Rajkumar, it is not the statistics that matter. No doubt they are impressive; an active film career of 50 years, over 200 films as an actor, hundreds of songs as a singer, dozens of titles, scores of national, state and important awards... All these only give only a small glimpse of the real personality. Why people adore him and call him Annavru with affection is because of the divinity he exuded. When he played a god in films, people worshipped him as a real god. When he made a statement in a film, people actually followed it. The best examples are how city people took to farming after the film Bangarada Manushya and gave up drinking after watching Jeevana Chaitra. 

    Rajkumar's simplicity is another virtue that Kannadigas are proud of. They are also proud of the fact that he did not utilise his popularity to become a politician. Even years after his death, he remains their favourite King. Long live Rajkumar.

  • ಜೀವನ ಚೈತ್ರ ಶುರುವಾಗಿದ್ದೇ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿ ದೇವರುಗಳ ಹೋರಾಟದಿಂದ..

    jeevana chaitra was made on fans insistence

    ಇಂದು ಏಪ್ರಿಲ್ 24. ಡಾ.ರಾಜ್ ಜನುಮದಿನ. ಬದುಕಿದ್ದರೆ, ಅವರಿಗೆ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ 90 ವರ್ಷವಾಗಿರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಜೀವನದುದ್ದಕ್ಕೂ ಮೌಲ್ಯಗಳನ್ನೇ ನಂಬಿ ಬದುಕಿದ, ಮಗುವಿನಂತೆಯೇ ಇದ್ದು ಹೋದ ಅಪರೂಪದ ಕಲಾವಿದನ ಅದ್ಭುತ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಲ್ಲೊಂದು ಜೀವನ ಚೈತ್ರ. ಅದು ರಾಜ್ಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಮದ್ಯಪಾನದ ವಿರುದ್ಧ, ಮದ್ಯದಂಗಡಿಗಳ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಮಹಿಳೆಯರು ಹೋರಾಡುವಂತೆ ಪ್ರೇರೇಪಿಸಿದ ಚಿತ್ರ. ಹೀಗೆ ಹೋರಾಟಕ್ಕೆ ದಾರಿ ದೀಪವಾದ ಆ ಚಿತ್ರ ಶುರುವಾಗಿದ್ದರ ಹಿಂದೆಯೂ ಒಂದು ಹೋರಾಟದ ಕಥೆ ಇದೆ. ಅಭಿಮಾನಿ ದೇವರುಗಳಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಇದ್ದರೆ, ಜೀವನ ಚೈತ್ರ ನನಸಾಗುತ್ತಲೇ ಇರಲಿಲ್ಲ.

    ಪರಶುರಾಮ್ ಚಿತ್ರದ ನಂತರ ಡಾ.ರಾಜ್ ಸುಮಾರು 3 ವರ್ಷ ಸೈಲೆಂಟ್ ಆಗಿದ್ದರು. ಯಾವುದೇ ಕಥೆ ಕೇಳಿದರೂ ಒಪ್ಪುತ್ತಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳೂ ನೋಡಿದರು.. ನೋಡಿದರೂ.. ಕಾದರು.. ಡಾ.ರಾಜ್ ಹೊಸ ಸಿನಿಮಾದ ಸುಳಿವೇ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಆಗ ಶುರುವಾಯ್ತು ನೋಡಿ ಹೋರಾಟ.

    ಡಾ.ರಾಜ್ ಮನೆ ಮುಂದೆ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿ ದೇವರುಗಳು ಪ್ರತ್ಯಕ್ಷರಾಗುತ್ತಿದ್ದರು. ನಾಡಿನ ಹಲವು ರಾಜ್ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿ ಸಂಘಗಳ ಸದಸ್ಯರು ರಾಜ್ ಮನೆಯೆದರು ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಮಾಡುವಂತೆ ಧರಣಿ ಕೂರಲು ಶುರು ಮಾಡಿದರು. ಅಷ್ಟೆಲ್ಲ ಯಾಕೆ, ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಗವಿಗಂಗಾಧರೇಶ್ವರ ದೇವಸ್ಥಾನಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋಗಿದ್ದ ಚಿ.ಉದಯಶಂಕರ್, ರಾಜ್ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳ ಸಿಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಗುರಿಯಾಗಬೇಕಾಯ್ತು. ಜೊತೆಗಿದ್ದ ಪಾರ್ವತಮ್ಮನವರಿಗೂ ಇದು ಅರ್ಥವಾಗಿ ಇನ್ನಷ್ಟು ಸೀರಿಯಸ್ ಆಗಿ ಕಥೆ ಹುಡುಕೋಕೆ ಶುರು ಮಾಡಿದರು. ಆಗ ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಬಿದ್ದಿದ್ದೇ ವಿಶಾಲಾಕ್ಷಿ ದಕ್ಷಿಣಾ ಮೂರ್ತಿಯವರ ವ್ಯಾಪ್ತಿ ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತಿ ಕಾದಂಬರಿ.

    ವಿಚಿತ್ರವೆಂದರೆ, ಆ ಕಾದಂಬರಿಯ ಹಕ್ಕನ್ನು ಕೆ.ವಿ.ಜಯರಾಂ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದರಂತೆ. ರಾಜ್ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಾರೆ ಎಂಬ ಕಾರಣಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾದಂಬರಿಯ ಹಕ್ಕನ್ನು ಉಡುಗೊರೆಯಾಗಿ ನೀಡಿದರು ಕೆ.ವಿ.ಜಯರಾಂ. ಮುಂದಿನದ್ದು ಈಗ ಇತಿಹಾಸ.

    ಅಂದಹಾಗೆ, ಕಲಾವಿದನೊಬ್ಬ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಮಾಡಲೇಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳೇ ಪ್ರತಿಭಟನೆ ನಡೆಸಿ ಗೆದ್ದ ಉದಾಹರಣೆ ಇರುವುದೂ ಕೂಡಾ ಡಾ.ರಾಜ್ ಒಬ್ಬರಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾತ್ರವೇ.
