We have heard 5G omnipresent Ganesha – Panchamukhi Ganesha! On the Ganesha festival day ‘5G’ – the fifth generation from Mahatma Gandhi time is releasing with three times re-censor for the film. Finally it is four cuts and four mute for the film.
Gurunandan Shetty has put in great effort for this film to connect to the audience. He has used Gandhi photo bearing currency note for this film. The Gandhi role is played by Shikaripura Krishnamurthy who was in Girish Kasaravalli’s ‘Koormavathara’ as a man with Gandhian principles. Director Gurunandan Shetty spent nearly three months on this addition and subtraction for the film. The film also travel with four pillars of Indian constitution.
The concept of this film was almost set for a short film by Venkatesh. Gurunandan Shetty reworked on this for a feature film. The happiest news is that GK Bharavi watching this film has asked for remake rights to all other south Indian languages. That is the first major win for debut director.
Praveen playing the lead says he has very different character to play. For a fantasy and imagination performing naturally was bit difficult he said. Co producer Ishwar Rao Pawar was of the opinion that Praveen reminds Dr Vishnuvardhana in his performance. That was a good compliment for ‘Simple Ag Innond Love Story’ hero Praveen before the release of his second film.
Sridhar Sambram has done music for three songs but only two are screen. Dr V Nagendra Prasad song on currency note has become hugely popular. It is a song for generations to come. I have written the song before demonetization he says. Vijaya Prakash has delivered this song. The social concern is depicted in it.
