JUST DO GOOD ... DON'T WAIT FOR ANY OCCASION
T
his is what pannagha barana has to tell from his cleanly weaved directorial debut.

The film is about 5 different class of people

1. Rj daany - played by Dhananjay who is the voice of the city , everybody likes him... But his lady love Shruthi Hariharan struggles from a rare lung disorder and is hospitalised throughout the film, Dhananjay puts all the financial peices together for the much expected betterment of his lady love.

2.A rich car showroom manager - played by saikumar and his house taken care by loving and onion hating sudharaani , even with so much clean love at home saikumar always craves for modern girl's love.

3. Constable police vehicle driver - played by Vijay Raghavendra and his house maintained by Sonu Gowda, struggling to give time to his small kid and beautiful wife, Vinay Raghavendra is always imagined tangle between his strict senior inspector and family love.

4. Carefree guy, doesn't believe in signs and amazements thinks everything is just a coincidence - played by diganth and his love interest debutant producer's daughter shrushti Patil who is right opposite to him. Their love track is completely set up on Malaysia

5. Then comes the most important and the vine back of its sorts - KAURAVA himself BC PATIL..a local rowdy who doesn't like anybody being happy and clean... To clean his thoughts comes in Russian talent margret .

All the characters in the film think about one think... What to do and how to celebrate and welcome the NEW YEAR 2017.
With all the ups and downs the characters make sure they don't lose out on the massive star cast.
It's pannagha barana's screenplay that doesn't confuse us between all the 5 stories
Shreesha's camerawork supports pannagha very well.
One character which concludes the whole concept of HAPPY NEW YEAR is Rajshri ponnappa's character...

Overall a good clean watch , cud have been better if the first half would have been little faster and cripsier ...a few sprinklers of masala elements wud have made it a real new year treat ..

But the concept of Just do good.... Don't wait for any occasion touches one and all.

HAPPY NEW YEAR’ AUDIO RELEASED
S
udeep released the audio of upcoming Kannada film ‘Happy New Year’ at a function in Bengaluru. The film is being produced by B C Patil and his wife Vanaja Patil. The film is directed by Pannaga Bharana and it is a multi-starrer. The film has music by Raghu Dixit.

 Speaking on the occasion, Sudeep said he had used Raghu Dixit for Just Maath Maathalli about seven years back but mentioned that the music composer had not changed his style. He urged Dixit to change himself as commercial cinema is changing just as much he had himself changed. He said music used to be released on CDs but now the team of Happy New Year has released the film’s music on a pen drive that is placed in a box. He wished that for all the heroines the box should turn into a jewel box.

Sudeep said Pannaga Bharana hails from a good film family and believed that he has done the film well. He hoped and expressed confidence that the songs of the movie will infuse life into the film.

B C Patil said Hamsalekha was primarily responsible for all the respect and honour that he gained after Kaurava. He said he has produced a film after six years and added that the director had not shown him the movie as yet. He announced that he intends to release the movie for Ugadi.

Nagabharana said Raghu Dixit’s music has the rawness and rustic touch of rural life.   

Sonu Gowda said all of them do not have songs for themselves. She said artists appear in montage songs and added that it was like working in a family.

Hamsalekha said Raghu’s smile and Nagabharana’s child are causes for the film. He said Nagabharana had not got excited nor exited from cinema. Hamsalekha described Raghu Dixit’s company RDX as a music bomb.

Jayanth Kaikini said the old generation and the new generation had come together for this film. He said the director is born out of theatre and cinema and described himself as a old person lost in the past.

Song clippings from the movie were shown. Singers Kapil, Raghu Dixit, Avinash, Vasuki Vybhav also sang on the occasion.

Dhananjaya, Sruthi Hariharan, Srishti Patil and Rajshri Ponnappa were also present on the occasion.

PARTY ANTHEM SONG FOR ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR
A
special party song which is also a promo song is being picturised at Kanteerava Studio for Kannada film ‘Happy New Year’. The film which is in its last leg of production is being produced by Vanaja Patil and B C Patil. The film is directed by Pannaga Bharana and Raghu Dixit has scored the music.

Producer B C Patil who is also dancing to the song told reporters that the song will welcome the New Year 2017 and the promotional song for the movie was being picturised in the studio. He said all the artistes are participating in the song sequence. He said there is a national anthem and there is a state anthem besides many birthday songs but there is no party song in Kannada that will ring in the New Year. The Happy New Year song has been composed by Raghu Dixit.

Patil said the shoot for the film has been completed and that the film will see a release in February. He said the promotional party song for the New Year will be released on Dec. 31 on Youtube in time to ring the New Year celebrations.

Raghu Dixit said the song which is about three-and-a-half minutes in length has been penned by Narasimha and Bharat. The rap section of the song has been rendered by Rahul Ditto.

Director Pannaga Bharana said all the characters in the movie will meet in the song and it is a party song for the new year. He said a party anthem was wanted for the youths to celebrate the ushering in of the new year. However, he refused to disclose where the song will be placed in the movie.

Diganth said he had shot for a song in Hong Kong with Srusti Patil. Vijay Raghavendra said the shoot has been completed with a lot of enthusiasm and praised the director for visually executing it well.

Srushti Patil said she was excited to get to act with everyone and added that there was more fun than seriousness at work. She said she plays a girl who is someone who doesn’t depend on anyone and takes life as it comes.

Dhananjaya said the song is a fresh thought for the new year. Sruthi Hariharan said Raghu Dixit has given the song a new flavour and added that it will change the party scene all over.

Rashri Ponnappa said the party song is the first of its kind and there is no other better way to end the year 2016. Saikumar said he is excited to be part of the film in a different role. He said he has been paired opposite Sudha Rani who is his first heroine in Kannada.

Director Pannaga said Prajwal Devaraj, Krishi, Yogi and Manvitha will be among the guests appearing in the song.

RJ Siri who hosts the popular show Rewind Raaga on Radio Mirchi said she is in front of the camera for the first time which is totally a new experience for her. She said the whole offer of this role came as a surprise to her.

Imran Sardaria is choreographing the song.

B C PATIL TO BEGIN SHOOT FOR ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR’ NEXT WEEK
T
he shoot for Happy New Year, a new multi-starrer Kannada film being produced by B C Patil and Vanaja Patil under the direction of Pannaga Bharana will commence next week. The film stars B C Patil, Dhananjaya, Vijaya Raghavendra, Diganth, Saikumar, Sruthi Hariharan, Sonu Gowda, Sudha Rani, Srushti Patil, Malavika, Rockline Venkatesh, Chandru, Tabala Nani, Rajashri Ponnappa, Margarita and Raju Talikote among others.

B C Patil told reporters that Happy New Year is his 15th film as a producer and said he had directed five films. He said he plays a rowdy in the film which he himself chose. He said Raghu Dixit will be scoring the music and added that the music composer himself had bought the music rights of the film.

Patil said he is back on the big screen six years after he did Salute. He said people were anxious to know when he was doing a film more than his role as a politician. He said the film will be shot in Hirekerur for 10 days and for 40 days in Bengaluru. He said songs will be shot in Malaysia.

Patil said director Pannaga has moulded the story and promised that the audiences will get to see five cinemas in one cinema. He said director who has finished his directorial course from New York has given a copy of the script to costume designer and even the make-up man with all the description.

Vanaja Patil said she liked one of the five stories that were narrated by director Pannaga.

Vijaya  Raghavendra said it is a happy title as much as the story. He said it was a privilege for him to be acting in his mentor Nagabharana son’s maiden directorial venture.

Sruthi Hariharan said she was happy to be part of a big star cast. She said there is a justification for every character in the movie despite the movie being a multi-starrer. Sruthi said the movie is about why different people experience moments differently. She said she was happy to be paired opposite Dhananjaya again.

Dhananjaya said Happy New Year is a new concept that will release in the new year.

Srusthi Patil, daughter of B C Patil who is being introduced in the movie said she had taken a break for a year after completing an acting course which she did pursue after her MBA. She said she liked the character that Pannaga had conceptualized that has a lot of weightage. She said she is excited to act after having done small roles as a child artiste in two or three films with her father. She also clarified that she is not doing the film because it is produced by her parents but because she liked the character.

Rajashri Ponnappa said she plays a fun loving girl much like her real life persona. The movie is a celebration of life, she said.

Diganth said he was happy that B C Patil is back as a producer after a long gap. He said Happy New Year is one of the best romantic stories that he had heard.

Margarita also spoke.

Director Pannaga Bharana, son of T S Nagabharana said he is realizing his dream of directing a film. He said he was lucky to have a team of five writers for the film. He said all the things fell in place especially in respect of the actors and characters that he had thought of. The film is exciting, entertaining with a lot of mixed emotions he said without specifying other details. He said the film could be called a rom-com, an action thriller, emotional drama and a comedy as it has all the elements. He said its tricky to bring all the characters together. The film has four songs and added that the narration will be linear with interlinking of characters.

Happy New Year is about a constant journey called life. All the human beings are characters wearing a mask and are removing it again and again.  

Srisha is the cameraman. Simple Suni, Pratibha Nandakumar, Satyaprakash, Adi Shankar and Avinash Balekkala are the dialogue writers. Madan and Harini are the choreographers and Thriller Manju is the stunt director. Dinesh is the make-up man and Ismail is the art director.
