  • Milana Prakash's Film With Darshan Titled Tarak

    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

    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.

  • Tarak Movie Review

    tarak review

    Tarak is a special film for Darshan. Many of his fans want to see him in action films with lots of fights and punch dialogues. Tarak is however another kind of film. It is a family film which upholds family values and there are not many fights (there are some good ones but not many). There are good songs and romance too. There is different kinds of dialogues and a different kind of acting that is required for a film like this. Darshan has excelled in it. He shows us that he is not just a very good action, mass image actor but also a subtle actor who can express a wide variety of emotions. Apart from action and romance, the emphasis in this film is about emotions. In some scenes Darshan makes you cry with his acting. That is the power of his abilities as an actor. 

    Director Prakash has given Darshan an image that is very very different from the usual films Darshan is seen in. Tarak will rank among one of the most surprisngly different films of Darshan in his career.

    The film is about Tarak a NRI who lives in Europe. His grandfather lives in Bengaluru. Tarak who is named after his grandfather avoids meeting him for 22 years. In Europe a girl falls madly in love with him. Tarak finally falls for her love. The girl however changes track and wants to cut the relationship. She imposes a condition that he should live away from her for 60 days. Tarak has no option but to go to Bengaluru. He has to confront the past there and try to adjust to a joint family. Does he succeed? Why does the girl send him away? Tarak meets a new girl in Bengaluru and a complicated relationship begins. How does he manage to survive everything forms the family drama. 

    Darshan has given a commendable performance. Devaraj gets a superb role and he manages to fulfill that dream character as an old man to perfection. He is brilliant. Shanvi Srivatsa and Sruthi Hariharan play the love interests of Darshan in the film. They have contrasting characters to play. Shanvi shines in her character that goes from innocent to mature. Sruthi's character carries the weight of emotions on it. 

    The cinematography captures the beauty of Europe and the classy indoors. The dialogues and screenplay are good. Music by Arjun Janya captures the mood correctly. Tarak is a film for the family that you cannot miss.
