BEAUTIFUL MANASUGALU 25, EYES OVERSEAS RELEASE
K
annada film Beautiful Manasugalu has completed 25 days of successful run at the box-office. The film is produced by Prasanna and directed by Jaithirtha. The movie stars Neenasam Satish, Sruthi Hariharan and Sandeep among others in lead roles.

Director Jaithirtha told reporters on Monday night that thanks to media support the movie has completed 25 days of successful run. He said the film will now released overseas with the help of V7 Seven Hills which will be an eye-opener for the Kannada film industry.

Satish said all the people are responsible for the film’s success. He said the film’s collections dropped on Wednesday, a prior to Republic Day holiday when all the chips were down and all hopes dashed. But, the film’s collections took off on the long holiday weekend that turned the film’s fortunes.

Sruthi Hariharan said women say her character Nandini that she played in the film was close to their hearts and many of them said the film was so much like their lives. She also thanked Satish for the support given to her.

Sandeep said he was happy to be seen in a sentimental role in a film that has been shot differently from the regular pattern.

Vijayendra who represented V7 Seven Hills there is a smaller market for Kannada films in the US. But, he said he is from outside the industry and would like to break the convention. He said he plans to release Beautiful Manasugalu in 96 centres and exhibit in the US from February 23 to 26 with almost 1000 shows and then move on to Canada. The film will be screened in Singapore on March 11 and 12 and subsequently move to Malaysia and Dubai. He said shows and theatres were not fixed for UK, Australia and other centres. He said his company is investing Rs 30 lakh on the exercise.

Producer Prasanna said the film faced initial hiccups but recovered due to media support. He said Vijayendra will be sharing 40 percent of his returns with him on the overseas collections. He said he hoped both the parties will benefit from the release. He thanked the director for taking interest in promoting the film even after the film had released.

ಬೆನ್ನುಬಿದ್ದು ಒಲಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು, ಕಣ್ಣಲ್ಲಿ ಕಣ್ಣಿಟ್ಟು ನೋಡುತ್ತಾ, ಕೈಕೈ ಹಿಡಿದು ಓಡಾಡಿಬಿಟ್ಟರೆ ಅದು ಪ್ರೀತೀನಾ? ಕಷ್ಟಸುಖ ಅಂತಾ ಬಂದಾಗ, ಇಲ್ಲದ ಆಪಾದನೆಗಳು ಸುತ್ತಿಕೊಂಡಾಗ, ಜಗತ್ತೇ ತಿರುಗಿಬಿದ್ದು ದೂಷಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾಗ ನೆಚ್ಚಿಕೊಂಡ ಜೀವಾ ಕೂಡಾ ಅದನ್ನೇ ಮಾಡಿಬಿಟ್ಟರೆ ಅದು ಪ್ರೀತಿಯಾಗಿ ಉಳಿಯುತ್ತಾ?

ಜಯತೀರ್ಥ ನಿರ್ದೇಶನದ, ನೀನಾಸಂ ಸತೀಶ ಮತ್ತು ಶೃತಿ ಹರಿಹರನ್ ನಟಿಸಿರುವ ಬ್ಯೂಟಿಫುಲ್ ಮನಸುಗಳು ಚಿತ್ರ ಇಂಥ ಅನೇಕ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಉತ್ತರವಾಗಿ ನಿಂತಿದೆ.
ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಅಂದರೆ, ಮಾರಾಮಾರಿ ಫೈಟು, ಯದ್ವಾತದ್ವಾ ಕುಣಿಯುವ ಐಟಂ ಸಾಂಗು, ತಲೆ ಸಿಡಿಸುವ ಸೌಂಡು, ಫಾರಿನ್ ಲೊಕೇಷನ್ನು, ಪಂಚಿಂಗ್ ಡೈಲಾಗುಗಳು, ಭಯಾನಕ ಬಿಲ್ಡಪ್ಪುಗಳು, ಸಿಕ್ಕಾಪಟ್ಟೆ ಬಜೆಟ್ಟು,... ಇವೆಲ್ಲಾ ಇರಲೇಬೇಕೆಂದೇನೂ ಇಲ್ಲ. ನೋಡುವ ಮನಸುಗಳನ್ನು ಕಥೆ, ಸುಂದರವೆನಿಸುವ ನಿರೂಪಣೆ, ಸಂದರ್ಭಕ್ಕೆ ಬೇಕಾದಷ್ಟೇ ಮಾತುಗಳು, ಸಹಜವಾದ ಚಿತ್ರೀಕರಣಗಳಷ್ಟೇ ಇದ್ದು, ಬ್ಯೂಟಿಫುಲ್ ಎನಿಸುವ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಮಾಡಿ ಜನರನ್ನು ಮೆಚ್ಚಿಸಬಹುದು ಎನ್ನುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಸ್ಪಷ್ಟ ಉದಾಹರಣೆ ಬ್ಯೂಟಿಫುಲ್ ಮನಸುಗಳು.

ಹುಡುಗಿಯನ್ನು ನೋಡಿದ ಮೊದಲ ಕ್ಷಣಕ್ಕೆ ಆಕೆಯತ್ತ ಆಕರ್ಷಿತನಾಗಿ ಆಕೆಯ ಬೆನ್ನು ಬಿದ್ದು ಥರಹೇವಾರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಲವ್ ಪ್ರಪೋಸ್ ಮಾಡುವ ಹುಡುಗ. ಈತನ ಸುತ್ತಾಟವನ್ನು ಕಂಡು ಕಡೆಗೊಂದು ದಿನ ಆತನೊಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಮಾತಾಡಿ, ಪ್ರೀತಿಗೆ ಒಪ್ಪಿಗೆ ನೀಡುವ ಹುಡುಗಿ ತನಗೆ ಎಂಥಾ ಗಂಡ ಬೇಕು ಅನ್ನೋದನ್ನು ನಿವೇದಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾಳೆ. ಮಧ್ಯಮವರ್ಗದ ಈ ಜೋಡಿ ಒಂದಾಗಿ, ಒಂದು ರೌಂಡು ತಿರುಗಾಡುವಷ್ಟರಲ್ಲಿ ಯಾರೂ ಊಹಿಸದಂಥದ್ದೊಂದು ಘಟನೆಯೊಂದು ನಡೆದುಹೋಗುತ್ತದೆ.

ಕನಸು ಮನಸಿನಲ್ಲೂ ಎಣಿಸದಂಥ ಆಪಾದನೆಯೊಂದು ನಾಯಕಿಯ ಹೆಗಲೇರುತ್ತದೆ. ಆ ನಂತರ ಏನೆಲ್ಲಾ ತಿರುವುಗಳಾಗುತ್ತವೆ? ಸಣ್ಣದೊಂದು ದುಡುಕು, ಅನುಮಾನಗಳು ಪ್ರೀತಿಸಿದ ಮನಸ್ಸುಗಳನ್ನು ಹೇಗೆ ದೂರಾಗುವಂತೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ? ಕಳೆದುಹೋದ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಮತ್ತೆ ದಕ್ಕಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಏನೆಲ್ಲಾ ಪಡಿಪಾಟಲು ಪಡಬೇಕು... ಅಷ್ಟೆಲ್ಲಾ ಯಾತನೆಗಳನ್ನು ಪಟ್ಟಮೇಲೂ ಕೈಬಿಟ್ಟುಹೋದ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಮರಳಿ ಸಿಗುತ್ತದಾ? ಅನ್ನೋದು `ಬ್ಯೂಟಿಫುಲ್ ಮನಸು'ಗಳ ಎಳೆ. ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಬರೀ ಬ್ಯೂಟಿಫುಲ್ಲಾದ ಮನಸುಗಳಷ್ಟೇ ಇಲ್ಲ, ಲಂಚಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಬಾಯ್ತೆರೆದು ಕೂತ ಭ್ರಷ್ಟ ಪೊಲೀಸರು. ತಮ್ಮ ಲಾಭಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಯಾರ ಬದುಕನ್ನು ಬೇಕಾದರೂ ಹರಾಜಿಗಿಡುವ ಟೀವಿ ಮೀಡಿಯಾದ ಅಮಾನವೀಯ ಮನಸ್ಸುಗಳೂ ಅನಾವರಣಗೊಂಡಿವೆ. ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಬದುಕು ಹಾಳಾಗಿಹೋಗುತ್ತೋ ಅಂತಾ ತತ್ತರಿಸುವ ಒಬ್ಬ ಅಣ್ಣ. ತನ್ನ ತಂದೆಯ ದೂರ್ತತನದ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಸಿಡಿದುನಿಲ್ಲುವ ಭ್ರಷ್ಟನೊಬ್ಬನ ನಿಷ್ಕಲ್ಮಷ ಮಗಳು, ವೇದಾಂತಿಯಂತಾ ಸ್ನೇಹಿತ... ಒಟ್ಟಾರೆ ಇದು ನಮ್ಮ ಸುತ್ತಲಿನ ಪಾತ್ರಗಳಂತೆ ರೂಪುಗೊಂಡಿವೆ.

ಈ ರೀತಿಯ ರಿಯಲಿಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ಕಥೆಯನ್ನು ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಮಾಡುವಾಗ ಚಿತ್ರಕತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದಷ್ಟು ಜೀವಗಳನ್ನು ಕೊಲ್ಲುವಮ, ಅನವಶ್ಯಕವಾಗಿ ಅಪರಾಧ ಕೃತ್ಯಗಳನ್ನೆಸಗಿಸುವ, ಸುಖಾಸುಮ್ಮನೆ ಗೋಳಾಡಿಸುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಗಳೂ ಸಾಕಷ್ಟಿದ್ದರೂ, ಅಂಥಾ ಮಾಮೂಲಿ ಫಾರ್ಮುಲಾಗಳನ್ನು ಜಯತೀರ್ಥ ಬಳಸಲು ಹೋಗಿಲ್ಲ. ಬದಲಾಗಿ ಬೇರೆ ತೀರಿಯೂ ಚಿಂತಿಸಿ, ಪಾಸಿಟೀವ್ ದಾರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕೊಂಡೊಯ್ಯಬಹುದು ಎನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ಜಯತೀರ್ಥ ಸಾಬೀತುಮಾಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಸಹಜವಾಗೇ ನಟಿಸುವ ನೀನಾಸಂ ಸತೀಶ್ ನಟನೆ ಸೂಪರ್ಬ್. ನಾಯಕಿ ಶೃತಿ ಹರಿಹರನ್ ಪಾತ್ರವೇ ತಾವಾಗಿ ಅಭಿನಯಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಅಚ್ಯುತ್ ನಟನೆ ಅತ್ಯದ್ಭುತ. ಹಾಗೆಯೇ ತಬಲಾ ನಾಣಿ, ಪ್ರಶಾಂತ್ ಸಿದ್ಧಿ ಮತ್ತು ಸಂದೀಪ್ ಕೂಡಾ ಎಷ್ಟು ಸಾಧ್ಯವೋ ಅಷ್ಟೂ ಅಚ್ಚುಕಟ್ಟಾಗಿ ತಮ್ಮ ಪಾತ್ರವನ್ನು ನಿಭಾಯಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಕಿರಣ್ ಹಂಪಾಪುರ ಅವರ ಕ್ಯಾಮೆರಾ ಅತಿಸುಂದರ ದೃಶ್ಯಗಳನ್ನು ಕಟ್ಟಿಕೊಟ್ಟಿದೆ.

ಕೆಳಮಧ್ಯಮವರ್ಗದ ಕುಟುಂಬಗಳು, ಅವರ ತಲ್ಲಣಗಳು, ಅನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿತವಾಗಿ ಎದುರಾಗುವ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳ ನಡುವೆ ಕಾಡುವ ಒಂಟಿತನ ಎಲ್ಲವೂ ಬ್ಯೂಟಿಫುಲ್ ಮನಸುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಮನಮುಟ್ಟುವಂತೆ ಚಿತ್ರಿತವಾಗಿದೆ; ಆ ಮೂಲಕ ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಬ್ಬರೂ ನೋಡಬೇಕಾದ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಇದಾಗಿದೆ.

K
annada film ‘Beautiful Manasugalu’ is getting ready for a theatrical release on Jan. 20 all over Karnataka. The film is directed by Jaithirtha and produced by Prasanna. The film stars Neenasam Satish and Sruthi Hariharan in lead roles. Kiran Hampapura has handled the camera.

Director Jaithirtha told reporters on Thursday evening that the film had reminded him of many incidents and episodes in his life at the scripting stage which he has used. He said the film is a love story and its like watching their own lives on the screen. He said Sruthi Hariharan had not come out of her character even after the shoot is over. He said the film is based on a real incident.

Neenasam Satish said he is tensed about the film’s prospects like ever before in his 16-year old journey as an actor from his theatre days. He said irrespective of whether the film does well or not he didn’t sign the film. He said he cried when Jaithirtha narrated the story to him and instantly came on board. He said he has acted with Sruthi after Lucia in three years who has given him good company. The actor said K V Subbanna’s verses had been composed by Bharath which is good and the plus point of the film. He said the film has been made by beautiful minds.

Music composer Bharath said he never knew that the director had clarity about the background music as much as the songs that he wanted. He said it was tough to compose background music for comic scenes but still he said he managed to give it a different treatment.

Journalist Madan who has penned the lyrics for the songs said he was initially approached to write a song but ended up writing more than one song. He said it will be good if the film will be liked by the audiences as much as the film’s audio.

Sruthi Hariharan said she plays Nandini who comes out of an emotional upheaval. She said she represents the women who are affected in today’s life and especially in the light of the recent incidents that happened in Bengaluru.

Sandeep said he has done a beautiful character which is an emotional and sentimental one which is the first for him in his career. He said the director used to express the emotions himself and even cried which made it challenging for him.

Producer Prasanna said people will connect with the emotional connect of the film and added that his family liked the movie.
