  • Film Resembling DK Ravi Starts - Exclusive

    Sarkari Kelasa Devara Kelasa image

    Shooting for the film Sarkari Kelasa Devara Kelasa, starts April 2. The film's story is said to have an uncanny resemblence to the life of IAS officer DK Ravi who died on Monday. The film marks the return of Ashwini Ramprasad as producer. Currently the team is in Shiradi doing pooja for the script. The film's director is Ravindra who had directed Pareekshe earlier. Ravindra had taught Kannada to Ragini Dwivedi during her first film Holi. Matha Guruprasad has written the dialogues. The film stars Ravishankar (Silly Lalli), Sudha Belawadi, Raju Talikote among others.

    What is surprising is the coincidence of the film story to that of the honest government officer. The title is what we see on top of the Vidhana Soudha. It is also written in English as "Government work is God's work." In the film, a honest government officer realises that what he believed to be honest work is not really so. He is shocked by the system. However the film makers say that it is only a coincidence aa they were working on the script for months now. 

    Meanwhile many Sandalwood producers are trying to make a film on DK Ravi's life.

  • Sarkari Kelasa Devara Kelasa Movie Review

    sarkari kelasa devara kelasa

    It is not easy to make a comedy film on a serious subject. But producer Ashwini Ramprasad and director Ravindra have managed to do just that. Using a satirical story about corruption and how a farmer manages to bring about a change to the situation with an unique solution. The solution and the plot itself are special. This story has been turned into a film for the first time and Sarkari Kelasa Devara Kelasa turns out to be a good satire comedy.

    Ravi Gowda (Ravishankar) is a farmer who does not want to give bribe to get job done. This gets him into trouble. His mother has paid a large sum of money to get him a government job but is cheated. She is even beaten up by the government officer who has taken the bribe. Ravi realises that it is not just one person on whom he should take revenge. If he has to take revenge it has to be on the entire system.

    He however takes up the job of his late father and decides to dig a well and sell the water in his agricultural land. However he has to give bribes for this too. He decides to give the bribe so that he can get away from government officials for ever. But something else is brewing. At the interval comes the strange twist. This is surprising and witty. How Ravi manages to get his revenge on the corrupt government officials forms the rest of the story.

    Ravishankar and Samyukta Hornad give a good performance. There are a large number of side actors in the film. Ashish Vidyarthi gets to sing a song for the first time in his Kannada career. Sihi Kahi Chandru, Rangayana Raghu, Raju Talikote are among the other prominent actors. Even for small roles, big actors have been taken like Suchendra Prasad and Mukyamantri Chandru. 

    There are a few good songs including the popular belulli song. There is some good photography and crisp editing. The film is only two hours long but the editor has packed all the necessary details in this short period. It is a welcome film that should join the list of new wave films in Kannada. It is both entertaining and hard hitting.

    Chitraloka Rating 3/5
