  • Aa Karala Ratri Review, Chitraloka Rating 4/5

    aa karala ratri review

    The movie stars Karthik Jayaram, Anupama Gowda, Rangayana Raghu, Veena Sundar and a host of other prominent actors playing small yet important roles. 

    For everyone that complains about the usual “masala” in movies, this is definitely a different genre and a brilliant one at that. 

    If you’ve always thought movies come with a certain template or formula, this will definitely break that and give you a new perspective, and it’s very refreshing to see an engaging plot and interesting screenplay.

    The movie starts off with some brilliant camera work by PKH Das, excellent cinematography. Most of the movie is shot at night, so the DOP has had a tough and critical role to play, but the state award winner has done an extraordinary job in the movie. 

    Brilliant performances by Anupama Gowda, Rangayana Raghu and Veena Sundar. Such captivating performances are rare in today’s cinema. 

    JK has done a very good job and him accepting such an interesting character itself is a testimony to his love for interesting scripts. Definitely hope he continues to choose roles that will bring out his skills. 

    Anupama for a small screen actress has done such a wonderful job and play a very critical role in the movie, she has given a huge competition to stalwarts like Mr. Raghu and Mrs. Veena Sundar. Her timing, her sarcasm and her natural action were a treat to watch. Naveen Krishna’s dialogues specifically for Anupama were pure gold. 

    The Music Director has done an extraordinary job. The Re-recording was wonderful. The music all through the movie had the thrilling and racy feel. The songs are great. The background score will keep ringing in your head. 

    One would think that the editor must have had a task when such performances, editing such wonderful performances is quite a challenge but not for CrazyMindzz Sri. His long time association with Dayal itself is a proof of his excellent work. 

    Coming to the Producer and Director Dayal Padmanabhan. His way of looking at a play and turning that into a feature film is commendable. He has done a wonderful job in terms of star cast, screen play, and Naveen Krishna’s dialogues are very colloquial yet quirky. His performance in a such role was so brilliant, excellent dialogue delivert.

    A movie to be kept always in your library.

    Chitraloka Rating 4/5

  • Dayal Doubts Regional Kannada Jury Members Recommendations - Exclusive

    haggada kone image

    First of all I am glad to share with you that the Kannada feature film Harivu has won the best regional film award in 62 nd national film Awards.Apart from Harivu, I am also happy for actor Sanchari Vijay and the Makeup men Nagaraju and Raju who also won the awards for the film Naanu avanalla..Avalu..!

    My film Haggada kone missed the award though I Feel confidently that it deserves to win few awards.

    I went through the list of Award winners/films and felt strongly that there were many Kannada films including my film Haggada Kone  had better choice than the award announced as I have seen most of the films that have won the awards.In specific I would like to mention Kannada films including Haggada kone deserve to win Best supporting actor,Back ground score,best Adopted screenplay,Dialogue.

    I am deeply concerned over the recommendations on various category of awards made by Regional Jury members representing Kannada films for final round of selection by central jury members.

    In this regard,I have Filed a RTI petition with I & B Ministry by demanding the List of Kannada films submitted for awards and final List of Kannada films Recommended for various Awards by Kannada Regional Jury Members to Central Jury members.

    I have my Doubts on the recommendations made by Our regional Kannada Jury Members.

    In fact, the same lapse took place when the Kannada films Recommended for Indian panorma at IFFI 2014. Except the film December 1,no other films were recommended. In fact, Harivu had been also submitted for IFFI 2014.

    This is the high time, this matter has to be dealt to posses the Deserved Awards/statuses in National Level for Kannada films.

    Also every time It clearly reflects that who ever heads the central Jury,he/she bags maximum awards for his/her film Industry as it happens this time for Tamil film Industry as the Jury Members Head was Shri.Bharathi Raja.Also well known film Maker Shri. Bhagya Raj was there in the central Committee.
