In the print and visual media G Krishna of Belthangadi and Yathiraj print media colleague also an actor in big and small screen are together in the film ‘Bannada Kode’ obviously raised expectations.


Off late journalists turning to creative job on big screen is increasing. Last few months ago we had senior journalist SAdashiva Shenoy taking up ‘Prarthane’, Raghuram directed ‘Cheluveye Ninne Nodalu’, VCN Manju announced his direction, Sharan Hullur of ‘Chittara’ film magazine has taken up direction of television serial, KM Veeresh is in to his third film after Kada Beladingalu and Mandhahasa with hat trick hero Shivarajakumar in a bond movie as producer and Yathiraj himself preparing a good script is waiting for the right producer to become a director.


Wishing all the best to our colleagues and those who have been missed out in this column R Manohar would like to give good coverage of all colleagues’ films in this popular website on Kannada cinema.


Coming to Bannada Kode it is a good script of G Krishna the aspiration of child to get a colorful umbrella after fascination towards it. The mother is making a few bucks as maid servant and father is a drunkard. How the child achieves the dream of umbrella is the crux of the matter told in the rich and poor class disparity.


Debutant director of Bannada Kode G Krishna promises a neat film through not much of dialogues but with expressions. Krishna has wide experience in visual media in the last 16 years.


Yathiraj always bubbling with energy and acerbic tongue to lash at wrong doings plays the drunkard father. He is growing beard for this role and very confident of doing the role without consuming liquor. The role in ‘Akka Thangi’ what Yathiraj had played has in fact attracted director Krishna to select him for this role. The drunkard role later transform to good.
