  • 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.

    majestic movie image

    February 16 may be Darshan's birthday which his fans are eagerly awaiting. But one week before that is the biggest day of Darshan's career. February 8 marks the 16th anniversary of the release of Majestic, the film that launched the career of Darshan in a big way. It was the first film in which Darshan played the lead role. Movie was produced by MG Ramamurthy and directed by PN Sathya.

    majestic_launch2.jpgIn 16 years, Darshan has now reached his 50th film Kurukshetra which is releasing shortly. Majestic was produced by MG Ramamurthy and directed by PN Sathya. The film was launched in the end of 2001 and the Ambareesh couple had come to wish Darshan. Muniratna held the clap for the first shot of the film and now he is the producer of Darshan's 50th film. 

    Majestic was launched on August 20, 2001. From the muharat to the release, it took 172 days of filming, post production, promotion and release. Today after 16 years later, the epic date is 835 weeks past or 

    1,40,280 hours old. Every week and every hour since then has seen Darshan emerge bigger and more popular. 


    When the film released on February 8, 2002, it heralded the arrival of a new star in Sandalwood. The film had five songs all written by Dr V Nagendra Prasad. Music was scored by Sadhu Kokila. Along with the film the songs were also a big hit. Darshan's lead debut also had Rekha, Jai Jagadish, Vanitha Vasu and others in the cast. Harish Roy got highlighted as villian from this movie. Darshan hit a century in his very first film. The film was a box office success and also ran for a 100 days establishing him as a bankable star in Sandalwood. 

    The impact was such that Darshan's three more films in the lead role, Dhruva, Ninagoskara and Kitty released the same year. The next year, 2003, saw nine films of Darshan release. There was no looking back after that. The brand of Darshan was firmly established in his very first film itself. Fans took the tall new actor who was good for action as well as romantic roles.

    ಎರಡು ತಿಂಗಳೇ ಆಗುತ್ತಾ ಬಂತು, ‘ಉಮಾ ಕಾಲಂ’ ಯಾಕೆ ಬರುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ? ಕಾಲಂ ಬರೆಯುವುದನ್ನು ನಿಲ್ಲಿಸಿಯೇ ಬಿಟ್ಟಿರಾ ಎಂದು ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರು ಮತ್ತು ಅಭಿಮಾನಿ ದೇವತೆಗಳು ಆಗಾಗ ಕೇಳುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಒಂದಿಷ್ಟು ಈಮೇಲ್ ಗಳೂ ಬಂದಿವೆ. ಸಹೃದಯಿಗಳ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಮತ್ತು ಕಾಳಜಿಗೆ ನಾನು ಕೃತಜ್ಞನಾಗಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಕಾಲಂ ಯಾಕೆ ಬರುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದರೆ ನನಗೆ ಬರೆಯುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಸಾಧ್ಯವಾಗುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಬಲಭುಜದಲ್ಲಿ ಇದ್ದಕ್ಕಿದ್ದ ಹಾಗೆ ವಿಪರೀತ ನೋವು ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ಕೀಲಿಮಣೆ ಕುಟ್ಟುವ ಕ್ರಿಯೆ ಬಹಳ ತ್ರಾಸದಾಯಕವಾಗಿದೆ. ಕೆಲವು ದಿನ ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರ್ ಮುಟ್ಟಲೇಬೇಡಿ ಎಂದು ನನ್ನ ಫಿಸಿಯೋಥೆರಪಿಸ್ಟ್ ಅಪ್ಪಣೆ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಒಬ್ಬ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತ ತನ್ನ ಕೈಯನ್ನು ನಂಬಿ ಬದುಕುತ್ತಾನೆ, ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ನಂಬಿದ ಕೈಯೇ ಕೈಕೊಟ್ಟರೆ ಆಯ್ಕೊಂಡು ತಿನ್ನೋ ಕೋಳಿಯ ಕಾಲುಮುರಿದ ಹಾಗಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ನನ್ನ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿ ಹಾಗಾಗಿದೆ. ಆದರೆ ಇತ್ತೀಚೆಗೆ ಖಳನಟನಿಗೆ ರಾಜ್ಯಸರ್ಕಾರ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಘೋಷಿಸಿರುವ ಸುದ್ದಿ ಒಂದು ವಿವಾದವಾಗಿ ಬೆಳೆಯುತ್ತಿರುವ ಹಿನ್ನೆಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನ ಜರ್ಜರಿತ ಕೈ ಕೂಡಾ ಕಡಿಯುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಒಂದು ಟಿಪ್ಪಣಿ ಬರೆಯಲೇಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ, ನನ್ನ ವೈದ್ಯರ ಕ್ಷಮೆ ಕೋರಿ.

    ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕ ಪಿ. ಶೇಷಾದ್ರಿ ಅವರು ಖಳನಟನಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ನೀಡುವ ಅಗತ್ಯವಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಸರ್ಕಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಪತ್ರ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಅನ್ನುವುದೇ ವಿವಾದಕ್ಕೆ ಮೂಲ. ಅದಕ್ಕೂ ಮುಂಚೆ ಈ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಘೋಷಣೆಯಾದ ಸಂದರ್ಭವನ್ನು ನೀವು ನೋಡಬೇಕು. ಅದು ರಾಜ್ಯ ಚಲನಚಿತ್ರ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಪ್ರದಾನ ಸಮಾರಂಭ. ಈ ಅವಕಾಶವನ್ನೇ ಬಳಸಿಕೊಂಡು ದರ್ಶನ್ ವೇದಿಕೆಯ ಮೇಲೆ ಖಳನಟರಿಗೂ ಒಂದು ಪ್ರತ್ಯೇಕ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ನೀಡಿ ಎಂದು ಸರ್ಕಾರವನ್ನು ಕೋರಿದರು. ತಕ್ಷಣ ಹಿಂದುಮುಂದು ಯೋಚಿಸದೇ ಸಚಿವ ರೋಶನ್ ಬೇಗ್ ತಥಾಸ್ತು ಅಂದರು. ದರ್ಶನ್ ಕೇಳಿದ್ದು ತಪ್ಪಲ್ಲ, ಯಾಕೆಂದರೆ ಅವರ ತಂದೆಯವರು ಒಂದು ಕಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಖಳನಟನಾಗಿದ್ದವರು. ಖಳನಟರಿಗೆ ಅನ್ಯಾಯವಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ ಎಂದು ದರ್ಶನ್ ಅವರಿಗೆ ಬಹಳ ವರ್ಷಗಳಿಂದ ಅನಿಸುತ್ತಲೇ ಇತ್ತು. ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ಕನ್ನಡ ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗಕ್ಕೆ 75 ವರ್ಷ ತುಂಬಿದ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಫಿಲಂ ಚೇಂಬರ್ ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗಕ್ಕೆ ಸೇವೆ ಸಲ್ಲಿಸಿದ ಮಹನೀಯರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳನ್ನು ಹೊರತಂದಾಗ ಅದರಲ್ಲಿ ತೂಗುದೀಪ ಶ್ರೀನಿವಾಸ್ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಪುಸ್ತಕವಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂಬ ಕಾರಣಕ್ಕೆ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಅವರು ಜಯಮಾಲಾ ಅವರನ್ನೇ ತರಾಟೆಗೆ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದರು. 


    ದರ್ಶನ್ ಬೇಡಿಕೆ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ನನ್ನ ತಕರಾರಿಲ್ಲ, ಅದು ಅವರ ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಅನಿಸಿಕೆ. ಅದನ್ನು ಅವರು ಹೇಳಿಕೊಂಡರು. ಆದರೆ ವಾರ್ತಾ ಸಚಿವರು ಅದನ್ನು ಸ್ಥಳದಲ್ಲೇ ಮಂಜೂರು ಮಾಡಿದ ಕ್ರಮ ಸರಿಯಿಲ್ಲ. ಯಾಕೆಂದರೆ ರಾಜ್ಯ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯೆಂದ ಮೇಲೆ ಅದಕ್ಕೊಂದು ರೀತಿನೀತಿ ನಿಯಮವಾಳಿಗಳಿರುತ್ತವೆ. ಕಲಾವಿದರ ಸಂಘಕ್ಕೆ ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಒಂದು ಮನವಿ ಪತ್ರ ಬರೆಯುವಂತೆ ಬೇಗ್ ಸೂಚಿಸಬಹುದಾಗಿತ್ತು. ಅನಂತರ ಅದರ ಅಗತ್ಯವಿದೆಯೇ ಅನ್ನುವ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗದ ಹಿರಿಯರ ಜೊತೆ ಸಮಾಲೋಚನೆ ನಡೆಸಿ ನಿರ್ಧಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಬರಬಹುದಾಗಿತ್ತು. ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಇಂಥ ಅಹವಾಲುಗಳು ಬಂದಾಗ ಆಯಾ ವರ್ಷದ ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಸಮಿತಿ ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಚರ್ಚೆ ನಡೆಸಿ, ಸರ್ಕಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಶಿಫಾರಸ್ಸು ಸಲ್ಲಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ಇದೇ ಮಾದರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲವು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಪಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಹೊಸದಾಗಿ ಸೇರ್ಪಡೆಯಾಗಿದ್ದವು.  ಆದರೆ ಖಳನಟನಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಘೋಷಿಸುವ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಇಂಥಾ ಯಾವುದೇ ನಿಯಮಗಳನ್ನು ಪಾಲಿಸಲಾಗಿಲ್ಲ. ಇದು ಕೆಟ್ಟ ಸಂದೇಶವನ್ನು ರವಾನಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ನಾಳೆ ಇನ್ನೊಬ್ಬ ನಟ ಅಥವಾ ನಟಿ ಖಳನಾಯಕಿಗೊಂದು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಕೊಡಿ ಅನ್ನಬಹುದು, ಐಟಂ ಡ್ಯಾನ್ಸರಿಗೂ ಕೊಡಿ ಅನ್ನಬಹುದು. ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಆಗ ಏನು ಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ? ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಭಾಗ್ಯ ಎಂಬ ಇನ್ನೊಂದು ಯೋಜನೆಯನ್ನು ಜಾರಿಗೆ ತಂದು ಅತೃಪ್ತರೆಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳನ್ನು ಹಂಚುತ್ತಾ ಹೋಗುತ್ತದೆಯೇ?

    ರಾಜ್ಯ ಚಲನಚಿತ್ರ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳ ಪಟ್ಟಿ ಈಗಾಗಲೇ ನಾನಾ ರೀತಿಯ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳ ಭಾರದಿಂದ ತತ್ತರಿಸುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಒಂದಲ್ಲ, ಎರಡಲ್ಲ ಇಪ್ಪತ್ತೆಂಟು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಪಟ್ಟಿಯಲ್ಲಿವೆ. ಒಂದು ಕಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ರಾಜ್ಯಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ವಿಜೇತ ನಟ ಅಥವಾ ತಂತ್ರಜ್ಞನ ಹೆಸರನ್ನು ಜನರು ಬಹಳ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಕಾಲ ನೆನಪಲ್ಲಿಟ್ಟುಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಿದ್ದರು. ಈಗ ಹೇಗಾಗಿದೆ ಅಂದರೆ ಆ ನಟನೇ ತನಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಊರೆಲ್ಲಾ ಹೇಳಿಕೊಂಡು ಓಡಾಡಬೇಕಾದ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿಯಿದೆ. ಹಳೆಯ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳನ್ನು ಮರೆತುಬಿಡಿ, ಈ ವರ್ಷ ಯಾರ್ಯಾರಿಗೆ ಯಾವ್ಯಾವ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಎಂದು ನೀವೊಮ್ಮೆ ಹೇಳಿ ನೋಡೋಣ. ರಾಜ್ಯ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಈ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳನ್ನು ರೂಪಿಸಿದ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಬಹುಶಃ ಹದಿನೆಂಟು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳಿದ್ದಿರಬೇಕು. ಕಾಲಕಾಲಕ್ಕೆ ಹೊಸ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಸೇರುತ್ತಾ ಹೋಗಿ ಈಗ ರಾಜ್ಯೋತ್ಸವ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಿರುವ ಮೌಲ್ಯವೇ ಚಲನಚಿತ್ರ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳಿಗೂ ದಕ್ಕಿವೆ. ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳ ಸಂಖ್ಯೆ ಜಾಸ್ತಿಯಾದಷ್ಟೂ ಅದರ ಮೌಲ್ಯ ಕಡಿಮೆಯಾಗುತ್ತಾ ಹೋಗುತ್ತದೆ. ‘ಸರ್ಕಾರವೇ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ನೀಡುತ್ತೇನೆ ಎಂದು ದೊಡ್ಡ ಮನಸ್ಸು ಮಾಡಿರುವಾಗ ಅದನ್ನು ಬೇಡ ಎಂದು ಪತ್ರ ಬರೆಯುವುದು ಶೇಷಾದ್ರಿಯವರ ಸಣ್ಣ ಮನಸ್ಸನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸುತ್ತದೆ’ ಎಂದು ಒಬ್ಬರು ಫೇಸ್ ಬುಕ್ಕಲ್ಲಿ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದರು. ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಅಂದರೆ ದೇವರ ಥರ, ಏನು ವರವನ್ನು ಬೇಕಾದರೂ ಕೊಡುತ್ತದೆ. ಆದರೆ ಸಮಾಜಕ್ಕೆ ಅದರ ಅಗತ್ಯವಿದೆಯೇ ಅನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ಯೋಚಿಸಬೇಕಾದವರು ನಾವು.

    ಖಳನಟನಿಗೂ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ನೀಡಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ಹಠ ಹಿಡಿಯುವವರು ಒಂದು ಸಾರಿ ರಾಜ್ಯ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಯಾಕಾಗಿ ಸ್ಥಾಪನೆಯಾದವು ಅನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ನೋಡಬೇಕು. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಯನ್ನು ಎತ್ತಿಹಿಡಿಯುವ, ಸದಭಿರುಚಿಯ ಮತ್ತು ಪ್ರಯೋಗಾತ್ಮಕ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳ ನಿರ್ಮಾಣಕ್ಕೆ ಪ್ರೋತ್ಸಾಹ ನೀಡುವುದೇ ಈ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳ ಹಿಂದಿನ ಉದ್ದೇಶ (ಖಳನಟ ಅನ್ನುವ ಪದದ ವ್ಯಾಪ್ತಿಯೊಳಗೆ  ಈ ಮೂರೂ ಅಂಶಗಳೂ ಬರುವುದಿಲ್ಲ).  ಈ ಕಾರಣಕ್ಕೇ ಸೆಕ್ಸು ಚಿತ್ರಗಳು, ಹಿಂಸಾತ್ಮಕ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ರೀಮೇಕು ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗೆ ಪರಿಗಣಿಸಲಾಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ಹಾಡು ಕುಣಿತ ಹೊಡೆದಾಟಗಳ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರಿ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಿಗೂ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಪಡೆಯುವ ಅವಕಾಶವಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೆ ಕೆಲವು ವರ್ಷದ ಹಿಂದೆ ಎಂಎಸ್. ಸತ್ಯು ಅವರು ಅಧ್ಯಕ್ಷರಾಗಿದ್ದ ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಸಮಿತಿ ಮೊದಲಬಾರಿಗೆ ಕಮರ್ಷಿಯಲ್ ಚಿತ್ರವೊಂದನ್ನು ಮೂರನೇ ಅತ್ಯುತ್ತಮ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಾಗಿ ಪರಿಗಣಿಸಿತು. ಅನಂತರ ಅದುವೇ ಸಂಪ್ರದಾಯವಾಯಿತು. ಮೂರು ವರ್ಷದ ಹಿಂದೆ ವಾರ್ತಾ ಇಲಾಖೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ಒಂದು ಹೆಜ್ಜೆ ಮುಂದಿಟ್ಟು ಮನರಂಜನಾತ್ಮಕ ಚಿತ್ರಕ್ಕಾಗಿಯೇ ವಿಶೇಷ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯೊಂದನ್ನು ರೂಪಿಸಿತು. ಎಂಬಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ರಾಜ್ಯ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯ ಮೂಲ ಉದ್ದೇಶ ಯಶಸ್ವಿಯಾಗಿ ಸಮಾಧಿಯಾಯಿತು.

    ಜನ ನೋಡುವ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಸಿಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ, ಜನ ನೋಡದೇ ಇರುವ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳೇ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಗಳಿಸುತ್ತವೆ ಎಂದು ಮೂಗು ಮುರಿಯುವವರು ಮೇಲೆ ಹೇಳಲಾದ ಸಂಗತಿಗಳನ್ನು ಗಮನಿಸಬೇಕು. ಜನಪ್ರಿಯ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ನೀಡುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಫಿಲಂಫೇರ್ ನಂಥಾ ಅವಾರ್ಡುಗಳಿವೆ. ಸರ್ಕಾರ ನೀಡುವ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಜನಪರವಾಗಿರಬೇಕೇ ಹೊರತಾಗಿ ಜನಪ್ರಿಯತೆಯನ್ನು ಆಧರಿಸಿರಬಾರದು. ಹದಿನಾರು ಹೆಣಗಳನ್ನು ಉರುಳಿಸುವ, ಎರಡು ಐಟಂ ಸಾಂಗ್ ಹೊಂದಿರುವ, ಮೂರು ರೇಪುಗಳನ್ನು ವಿವರವಾಗಿ ತೋರಿಸುವ ಚಿತ್ರವೊಂದು ಯಶಸ್ವಿಯಾದ ಮಾತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ಅದನ್ನು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಚಿತ್ರ ಎಂದು ಪರಿಗಣಿಸಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆಯೇ?

     ಹೇಗೆ ಹೇಳುವ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯ ಮೇಲೆಯೇ ಕಣ್ಣಿಟ್ಟು ಸೋ ಕಾಲ್ಡ್ ಆರ್ಟ್ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ತಯಾರಿಸುವ ಜನರೂ ಇಲ್ಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಅನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ನಾವು ಮರೆಯುವಂತಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೆ ಬುಟ್ಟಿಯಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಒಂದೆರಡು ಟೊಮೆಟೋಗಳು ಕೊಳೆತುಹೋದ ಮಾತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ಇಡೀ ಟೊಮೇಟೋ ಸಂತತಿಯನ್ನೇ ಹಳಿಯುವುದು ಸರಿಯಲ್ಲ. ಕನ್ನಡ ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗವನ್ನು ಅಂತಾರಾಷ್ಟ್ರೀಯ ಮಟ್ಟಕ್ಕೆ ಕೊಂಡೊಯ್ದ ಗಿರೀಶ್ ಕಾಸರವಳ್ಳಿಯಂಥವರು ನಮ್ಮಲ್ಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ವಾಸ್ತವ ಏನೆಂದರೆ ಕಮರ್ಷಿಯಲ್ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ಆಸ್ವಾದಿಸುವ ಬಹುಸಂಖ್ಯಾತ ಜನರು ಆ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಬಂದಿದೆಯೇ ಎಂದು ತಲೆಕೆಡಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ಕೇವಲ ರಂಜನೆಗೋಸ್ಕರ ಅಂಥಾ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ ಒಂದು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಚಿತ್ರದ ವ್ಯಾಖ್ಯಾನ ರಂಜನೆಗಷ್ಟೇ ಸೀಮಿತವಾಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ, ಅದನ್ನೇ ಈಸ್ತೆಟಿಕ್ ಸೆನ್ಸ್ ಎಂದು ಕರೆಯುತ್ತೇವೆ. ಅದನ್ನು ನೋಡುವವರ ಸಂಖ್ಯೆ ಕಡಿಮೆಯಾದರೂ ಒಟ್ಟಾರೆ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅವರಿಗೂ ಒಂದು ಪಾಲಿದೆ, ತಮಗೆ ಬೇಕಾದ್ದನ್ನು ನೋಡುವ ಹಕ್ಕೂ ಇದೆ.

    ಖಳನಟನಿಗೂ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಬೇಕು ಎಂಬ ಒತ್ತಾಯದ ಹಿನ್ನೆಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಮೇಲಿನ ಸಂಗತಿಗಳನ್ನು ಪ್ರಸ್ತಾಪಿಸಬೇಕಾಯಿತು. ಪೋಷಕ ನಟನಿಗೇ ಒಂದು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಮೀಸಲಾಗಿರುವಾಗ ಖಳನಟನಿಗೆ ಅಂತ ಮತ್ತೊಂದು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯ ಅಗತ್ಯವೇನಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಶೇಷಾದ್ರಿ ಕೇಳಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಹಾಗೆ ಬಗೆಯುತ್ತಾ ಹೋದರೆ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ನಟ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯ ವ್ಯಾಖ್ಯಾನವೇನು ಅನ್ನುವುದನ್ನೇ ಪ್ರಶ್ನಿಸಬೇಕಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ತೀರ್ಪುಗಾರೂ ಸೇರಿದಂತೆ ಬಹಳಷ್ಟು ಜನ ಅದನ್ನು ಅತ್ಯುತ್ತಮ ನಾಯಕ ನಟ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಎಂದೇ ಅಂದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ ಮತ್ತೊಮ್ಮೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಪಟ್ಟಿಯನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ. ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಬಳಸಿರುವುದು ಬೆಸ್ಟ್ ಆಕ್ಟರ್ ಎಂಬ ಪದ, ಅಂದರೆ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ನಟ. ಚಿತ್ರವೊಂದರ ಕಥಾವಸ್ತು ಮತ್ತು ಚಿತ್ರಕತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ನೀಡಿರುವ ಟ್ರೀಟ್ ಮೆಂಟ್ ಆಧಾರದ ಮೇಲೆ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ನಟ ಯಾರು ಎಂದು ನಿರ್ಧಾರವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಅಂದರೆ ಆತ ಬಾಲಕನೇ ಆಗಿರಬಹುದು, ಮುದುಕನೂ ಆಗಿರಬಹುದು. ಒಟ್ಟಾರೆಯಾಗಿ ಆತ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಕೇಂದ್ರಪಾತ್ರವಾಗಿರಬೇಕು ಅಷ್ಟೆ. ಉದಾಹರಣೆಗೆ ತಬರನ ಕತೆ ಸಿನಿಮಾದಲ್ಲಿ ತಬರನೇ ನಾಯಕ. ಯಾಕೆಂದರೆ ಇಡೀ ಕತೆ ಆತನ ಸುತ್ತವೇ ಸುತ್ತುತ್ತದೆ. ಕೇಂದ್ರಸರ್ಕಾರ ನೀಡುವ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಈ ಅಂಶವನ್ನು ಪರಿಗಣಿಸಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ, ದುರದೃಷ್ಟವಶಾತ್ ರಾಜ್ಯ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಪಟ್ಟಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ನಟ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಹೀರೋಗೆ ಮೀಸಲಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ.

    ಜಾಗತಿಕ ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಅತ್ಯುನ್ನತ ಪುರಸ್ಕಾರ ಎಂದೇ ನಂಬಲಾಗಿರುವ ಆಸ್ಕರ್ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಪಟ್ಟಿಯಲ್ಲೂ ನಟರಿಗೆ ಎಂದು ಮೀಸಲಾಗಿರುವುದು ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ನಟ-ನಟಿ ಮತ್ತು ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ಪೋಷಕ ನಟ-ನಟಿ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಮಾತ್ರ. ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಒಂದರ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ  ಅದರ ಇತರೇ ವಿಭಾಗಗಳೇ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಸೃಜನಶೀಲವಾಗಿರುತ್ತವೆ ಎಂದು ಆಸ್ಕರ್ ತೀರ್ಪುಗಾರರು ನಂಬಿದ್ದಾರೆ.  ಚಿತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ಪಾತ್ರವರ್ಗವನ್ನು ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಮಾಡಿದವರಿಗೂ ಅಲ್ಲೊಂದು ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯಿದೆ. ಇಂಥಾ ಪಾತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ಈತನೇ ಸೂಕ್ತ ಎಂದು ನಿರ್ಧರಿಸುವುದು ಕೂಡಾ ಸೃಜನಶೀಲತೆಯ ಚೌಕಟ್ಟಿನೊಳಗೆ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ ಅನ್ನುವುದು ಅವರ ಅನಿಸಿಕೆ. ನಮಗೆ ಆಸ್ಕರ್ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿ ಮಾದರಿಯಾಗಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ನಾನು ಹೇಳುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೆ ನಟರನ್ನು ವಿಪರೀತ ಮುದ್ದು ಮಾಡುವ ಚಟದಿಂದ ನಾವು ಕೊಂಚ ದೂರ ಉಳಿಯುವುದು ಹಿತ ಎಂದಷ್ಟೇ ಹೇಳುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ. 

    ಖಳನಟ ಅನ್ನುವ ಪದ ಚಾಲ್ತಿಯಲ್ಲಿರುವುದು ವ್ಯಾಪಾರಿ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ. ಅಂದರೆ ಅತಿ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯವನು ಹೀರೋ, ಅತಿ ಕೆಟ್ಟವನು ವಿಲನ್. ಇತ್ತೀಚಿನ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹೀರೋ ಪಾತ್ರದೊಳಗೂ ಆಗಾಗ ಖಳ ಪರಕಾಯ ಪ್ರವೇಶ ಮಾಡುವುದುಂಟು. ಪಡ್ಡೆ ಹುಡುಗರು ಅದನ್ನು ಇಷ್ಟಪಡುವುದೂ ಉಂಟು. ಅಂದಮೇಲೆ ಅದರಲ್ಲಿ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠತೆಯ ಮಾತೆಲ್ಲಿಂದ ಬರಬೇಕು ಅನ್ನುವುದು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆಯಾಗಬಹುದೇನೋ. ಹಾಗೆ ನೋಡಿದರೆ ಭಕ್ತಪ್ರಹ್ಲಾದ ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ರಾಜ್ ಕುಮಾರ್ ಪಾತ್ರವೇ ಅತ್ಯುತ್ತಮ ನಟ, ಪೋಷಕ ನಟ ಮತ್ತು ಖಳನಟ ಕೂಡಾ. ಇಂಥಾ ಉದಾಹರಣೆಗಳು ಸಿಗುವುದು ಬಹಳ ವಿರಳ. ಇದೆಲ್ಲದರ ಹೊರತಾಗಿ ಮಾತಾಡುವುದಾದರೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಯಾವತ್ತೂ ಪಾಸಿಟಿವ್ ಆಗಿರಬೇಕು. ಇದು ನನ್ನ ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಅನಿಸಿಕೆ. ಖಳನಟ ಅನ್ನುವ ಪದ ನಿಮ್ಮಲ್ಲಿ ಬಿತ್ತುವ ಭಾವನೆಗಳಾದರೂ ಏನು?  ಅದನ್ನು ಕೇವಲ ಪಾತ್ರವಾಗಿ ನೋಡಿ, ಆ ಪಾತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ನಟ ಎಂಥಾ ಪರಿ ವಿಜೃಂಭಿಸಿದ್ದಾನೆ ಅನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ ಎಂದು ನೀವು ವಾದಿಸಬಹುದು. ಆದರೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಗಳು ಸಲ್ಲುವುದು ನೈಜ ಅಭಿನಯಕ್ಕೆ, ಖಳನಾಯಕನಾಗಿ ಆತನ ನೈಜನಟನೆ ಬುದ್ದಿಬಲಿಯದ ಪಡ್ಡೆಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ಯಾವ ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಭಾವ ಬೀರಬಹುದು ಅನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ಒಂದು ಸಾರಿ ಯೋಚಿಸಿ.

    ಅಂದಹಾಗೆ ಢರ್ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಶರೂಖ್, ಪ್ರೀತ್ಸೇ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಉಪೇಂದ್ರ, ಓಂ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಶಿವರಾಜ್ ಕುಮಾರ್, ದಾಸ ಚಿತ್ರದ ದರ್ಶನ್, ಈಗ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಸುದೀಪ್ -  ಇವರೆಲ್ಲಾ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ನಾಯಕ ನಟರೋ ಅಥವಾ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ಖಳನಟರೋ ?

  • Viraat Vs Ricky on Jan 22

    Despite Darshan not wanting to hurt any Kannada producer's prospect, his film Viraat is likely to release on the same day as Rakshit Shetty's Ricky on January 22. The near completion of the much delayed Viraat and its imminent release had forced the rescheduling of many releases. Most film makers did not want to clash with his film. But the producer of Viraat suddenly announced the film to release on Darshan. But Darshan's wish was to release the film on or after January 28 so that other films which had announced their releases were not affected.

    Rishab Shetty directed Ricky had announced weeks ago of its release on Jan 22. It is one of the most anticipated films this year. If Viraat is released the same day it may take away many theatres. This is what Darshan did not want to happen as his films will get theatres whenever it is released. It is to be seen if the producer of Viraat heeds to Darshan's advice.

  • Yajamana Movie Review: Chitraloka Rating 4/ 5*

    yajamana movie review

    In one word, it's a 'treat’, for all those die-hard fans of challenging star Darshan, who had to wait for more than a year to witness him in action on the big screen. The 25th combination of dasa and his favourite composer Harikrishna who along with P.Kumar have extracted a perfect action thriller for this pre-summer season.

    Just like the character of Shivanandi, which according to mythology is the vehicle of Lord Shiva, Darshan pulls forward this action packed saga which is set around a simple tale but a well-oiled commercial entertainer.

    Since ages, oil has been one of the most important essential commodity for the mankind. Here, in Yajamana the makers have oiled this action thriller around cooking oil business, based on traditional methods. It also throws light on the plight of farmers, and how the middlemen make the profit as the growers suffer at their hands.

    Shivanandi takes on a business tycoon played by Anup Thakur, who throws series of challenges at him. Will Shivanandi emerges victorious in the end, is the story of Yajamana.

    Though on the outlook, it is all about Darshan and his star power which propels this venture with proportionate mix of romance, comedy, action and drama, it is also comes with a subtle message on why some traditional methods of agriculture and its business is still the most effective means for farmers even in this modern world.

    Melodious composer and singer Harikrishna who along with the assistance of Kumar, have scored a perfect tune even behind the camera. Insofar as performances are concerned, it is Darshan who leads the pack with Rashmika in a pretty role and Tanya Hope making a beautiful debut. 

    Devaraj plays yet another dynamic role, and Sadhu Kokila joins the bandwagon of popular comedians from television for a rib tickling sequences. Dali Dhananjay, Anup Thakur and Ravishankar as villains challenges Shivanandi, and in the end Yajamana turns out to be a fan-tastic experience for over two-and-half hours.
