We have seen decades old Narayana in the captivity of Pakistani camp coming to Shimoga and uniting with his mother - that was the subject for ‘Mathe Mungaru’. Now we have friends of America Chandra Sindogi, Arun Thumati, Ramakrishna Bhat, MC Gowda plus Divija K, Mogan Babu and Nityanand N finding their friend Sudhir Attavar after 18 years producing a film in his direction – of course the debut of Sudhir Attavar the famous lyricist of Kannada cinema. What is interesting is all producers and executive producers plus Sudhir Attavar were students of BDT Engineering College in Davanagere. Even the story writer is also from the same engineering college.
Known for the song in Savaari ‘Marali Mareyaagi….the friends without forgetting came to home town to take up a new film indeed.
‘Pari’ is based on the Sampanna Muthalik novel ‘Bharadwaja’ that won the best novel at the 2006 AKKA Sammelana. It deals with distilleries and illegal arrack manufacturing. The same subject was brought to the main stream cinema by director Sudhir Atthavar.
The film ‘Pari’ title is inspired from Mallige Poet KS Narasimha Swamy song Ninna Premada Pariye…..went on the floors Sunday morning at KSLTA.
Veteran Dadasaheb Phalke award winner VK Murthy, MS Sathyu and Nimay Ghosh the still photographer for Satyajith Ray films, gentleman hero Ramesh Aravind were present on the dais at the formal launch of the film. Atop near the dais the songs of Lambani culture and others were performed was another interesting aspect of the muhuruth of ‘Pari’.
Sudhir Atthavar has worked with me since 10 years and he has the knowledge in cinema. Let his film give a new dimension in Kannada cinema stated the veteran Garam Hava maker MS Sathyu.
The engineer’s brain is not ordinary. They think practical, look for safety and cost effective is given a thought. Let them look for budget friendly cinema advised Ramesh Aravind who is an Engineer came to cinema liking the sound of clap instead of sound of machines.
