30 JANATHA THEATRES IN FIRST PHASE
T
he government of Karnataka has initiated the process for construction of 30 Janatha theatres in the first phase that is meant to exclusively screen Kannada films. This was indicated by S V Rajendra Singh Babu, chairman of Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy.

He said the government had earmarked funds for construction of 100 Janatha theatres in its budget. He hoped that the government releases funds on time. Rajendra Singh Babu said there is a need to protest unitedly against multiplexes in the state if Kannada cinema has to survive.

Kannada director Nagathihalli Chandrashekar lamented that Kannada films could not find theatres in Karnataka itself and thus good films were not reaching the rural masses.

He said creative directors may win the hearts of Kannadigas but he said it was not easy to win over the industry pundits and mandarins in Gandhinagar. He said it is necessary to check the growth of these middlemen and only then can Kannada films prosper.

Ramesh Aravind said after a long time the Kannada film industry had found five creative directors in Pavan Kumar, Raam Reddy, Hemanth Rao, Navaneeth and S D Arvinda.

Thithi, U-Turn, Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu, Last Bus and Karvva had attracted non-Kannadigas that these films were doing well in multiplexes and it has become difficult to get tickets for these movies, he said.

Filmmakers, actors and other artists from the industry debated the critical and commercial success of recent films that challenged conventional paradigms. The young directors found themselves showered with plaudits by veterans from the industry.

All the speakers stressed the need to nurture young talent to ensure growth of the industry.
