Another interesting title ‘Kulfi’ from ten long years assistant director Manju Haasan turning independent director from this film got right promotion from two his mentors Nagaraj Kote and Mohan actor cum director.
Kulfi is not the mouth watering you consume. There is something else in this film. It shocks, surprises, creates fear and twists are in abundance. When I saw Kulfi at RR stage in two places got shocks. ‘Neevu Hedarthira, Bedarthira and Shabash heli Chappali Hodithira – this is what senior Mohan described on his long time assistant Manju Haasan. He was like right hand to me on my film sets. He never used to let me worry for anything. There are people who talk but not make good film, some who never talk but make a good cinema. Manju Haasan belongs to second category stated Mohan.
Nagaraj Kote another senior in the cinema industry, TV and theatre is the one who brought Manju Haasan to Bengaluru from Chamarajanagara after dodging him for eight months. He had seen the commitment in him from the day he brought him to Bengaluru. He made a forecast that Manju would be director one day. That day has come a little late stated Kote.
Respect woman. If you don’t do that you will be in trouble is the caution of this film from Manju Haasan. It was on whats app message he got hold of a story. The three youths in drunken state of mind make a family to commit suicide. Rest is revenge part and a message in the end says Manju Haasan.
Siloni Syed from Tulu and Konkani cinema is making debut. She has different shades in the film to perform. The innocence, fear and rudeness all roll in to one in her character.
Girish Gowda, Dilip and Lawrence are three youths in this film. Abhishekh Raghunath grandson of veteran of Kannada cinema industry HK Yoganarasimha has composed music for two songs = one is a solo song from Shwetha Chandrasekhar and the other one is a group song.
Producer Muniswamy brother of KD Venkatesh is investing on this film with Chowdappa and Prasanna Kumar. Corporation councilor AC Hariprasad was present to wish the team of ‘Kulfi’ Kannada cinema.
