    mgr, darshan

    MG Ramamurthy the producer of Majestic that launched Darshan as the lead actor has revealed about how the actor was chosen. In the ongoing controversy about Darshan challenging Sudeep's version of who suggested him for the film, Ramamurthy has cleard the air.

    Speaking to Chitraloka Ramamurthy said that Sudeep did not suggest the name of Darshan for the film. Our film director PN Sathya had contacted sudeep and had told him the story which sudeep did not do it. We were searching of a suitable hero for the subject. 

    The name of Darshan for the lead role in the film was suggested by Anaji Nagaraj who was then a cinematographer and also by Suresh Gowdru. We have done so many preaameets during Majestic movie. If it was true we would have told that there itself. We don't know why these type of news comes now after 15 years. This is no healthy for our industry. I will continue to make films with Darshan. It was my first film and Darshan was the best actor for Majestic. 

    I am clear that Sudeep did not suggest Darshan's name for the film. It was Anaji Nagaraj," he said.

    milana prakash;s new movie titled tarak

    'Milana' Prakash's new film with 'Challenging Star' Darshan is all set to start from the 01st of March and the film has been titled as 'Tarak'.

    'Tarak' was launched few days back. However, the film was not only titled and the shooting had not started because Darshan was busy with 'Chakravarthy'. Now that 'Chakravarthy' is in the post-production stage and Darshan is almost free except for a couple of days dubbing, Darshan's work is concluded. So, 'Milana' Prakash plans to start the film from the 01st of March.

    'Tarak' is being produced by Dushyanth who earlier produced 'Monalisa', 'Sri' and 'Milana'. Shruthi Hariharan and Rashmika will be playing the female leads opposite Darshan. A V Krishnakumar is the cinematographer, while Arjun Janya is the music composer of this film.

  • Mr Airavatha Album is Trendy

    mr airavatha image

    Currently V Harikrishna may be the biggest and most popular composer in Sandalwood. But just a few years ago, he was known as the composer for Darshan's films. And not surprisingly their combination never failed. There would be  at least two or three good songs in every album. 

    Their latest film together Mr Airavatha has for songs in the jukebox. The first is the title song written by director AP Arjun. It is a typical hero worshipping song where Darshan's on screen image is praised as his personal achievements. This is the typical hero introduction song we find in commercial masala movies. It is for the fans of Darshan and will no doubt please them. Ranjith, Santhosh Venky, Chintan Vikas and Shashank Sheshagiri have sung this song.


    The second song There Was A Ajji is a boy-teasing-girl song. No prizes for guessing Yogaraj Bhat as the lyricist. It is once again very typical of Bhat to come up with very different kinds of expressions while writing about very normal incidents. Hemanth has sung this song which should please youngsters.

    Ka Talakattu is a peppy number and Indu Nagaraj shines. In an imaginative way Yograj Bhat has made the kaagunita as lyrics. Harikrishna too gives his voice for this song. The song looks like it will top the charts sooner or later.

    The last song is written by Arm in and sung by Shashank Seshagiri and S Sunitha. This song is also experimental with its lyrics. Much of it is in reported speech as if in a conversation. Harikrishna has given it a very good musical touch.

    Overall this album is typical of what you expect from a Darshan film. It should please his fans and nothing looks out of place. The songs are set to boost the film.
