Karunada Chakravarthy, century star, hat trick hero Dr Shivarajakumar is in title role of `Shivappa`– his 123rd film that went on the floors at Doddaganapathi Temple on November 19, 2020 Thursday. Smt Geetha Shivarajakumar sounded the clap board for this film. Krishna Sarthak is producer of this lavish budget cinema, Vijay Milton cameraman of Kannada films ‘Pogaru’ and previously ‘Attahasa’ with a few interesting films like ‘Kadugu’ as director in Tamil heads the team as director of this film.
‘Nanu Malagiro Huli, silent and rugged’ in nature! Before the mistake happens one should realize in life. To get to that level in life is the most interesting part of life, says this film. The first film after eight months of Corona Pandemic Dr Shivarajakumar attended.
This film is an entertainer with variety. I wish to call it a Vijay Milton cinema. My friend Anoop Seelin, music composer of this film too, was telling about the Vijay Milton concept at the ‘Tagaru’ shooting time. After hearing the one line I was convinced that it would be a good film, explained Dr Shiv. Shashikuamar is playing a special role. The film is set in the backdrop of a rural atmosphere. Committing mistakes is wrong and thinking of doing it is also basically wrong. This film gives a neat narration towards this concept. The stage of avoiding committing mistakes is most wanted in this world, observes Dr Shiv. Of course my role is like ‘Ring Master’ connects to all characters of the film. This film is in no way connected to the Tagaru concept. This is not a multi star cast film. You would get the unexpected on the silver screen from ‘Shivappa’ opines Shivanna. The shoot would be over by January end 2021 according to Shiv.
Vijay Milton, very humble in his address stated that he is blessed with Dr Shivarajakumar accepting to act. In this film Dolly Dhananjay is not a villain. I have seen many films of Shivanna and you would feel entirely different from his previous films, assures Vijay Milton. You would see ‘New Avataar’ via Shivanna, he further says. He is using three cameras for the shooting so that the shots on the screen look very natural and it is not going to bother actors. You would get fine results say the cameraman by profession Vijay Milton. He is bringing in seven action portions for the film.
Producer Krishna Sarthak is taking up the film soon and he is on the verge of getting married in life but waiting for Corona Pandemic to recede. He is not keeping any budget limit for the film.
At the media meet the popular actor in Dakshin Kannada Prithvi Ambar was present. He is in full nervousness to appear with Dr Shivarajakumar. When I was in degree I watched Shivanna ‘Om’ several times and today I am acting with him is a pride moment in life, says Prithvi Ambar of ‘Diya’ fame.
Ace composer Anoop Seelin is preparing four tunes for this film and he is finishing all the songs very soon.
`Shivappa`…is a Kayo Thande! The famous song ‘Shivappa Kayo Thande….Mooru Loka Swami Deva’….reminds as we climbed the stairs after the media briefing.
