DARSHAN UPSET OVER POOR TURNOUT AT SUCCESS MEET
C
hallenging Star Darshan on Wednesday night expressed his disappointment over the poor turnout of artistes and media personnel at the success meet of Jaggu Dada.

He said producers often complain that the artistes do not turn up for their film's promotional activities but producers actually do not invite the artistes in an appropriate manner. “Their managers call us and inform us about the meet,” he said, adding that “it is inevitable for me to promote my films myself.”

Darshan said the success meet of Jaggu Dada was scheduled about a week ago. He said the film’s audio launch function was jam packed but today it is empty.

Producer, director and editor Raghavendra Hegde reacted to Darshan saying that he was unwell a week ago and hence the success meet could not be organized earlier.

Referring to the success of Jaggu Dada, Darshan said it has been proven that if good films are made audiences will ensure that it runs successfully. He said of the 45 films that he has acted in his career so far he had done very few comical roles. He said Jaggu Dada was one such film that did not have build up or too many dialogues. He said his next film Chakravarthi will be different and that he plans to promote it differently.

Earlier, producer-director Hegde said the film Jaggu Dada got released in 303 theatres and it is now running in 202 theatres. He said collections in Mumbai and Pune were good for the movie.

Choreographer Kalai said he was happy with the success of the movie and thanked the producer-director for giving him an opportunity to work.

Music director V Harikrishna also spoke about the movie’s success.

ನಟ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಕೂಡ ಕಾಮಿಡಿ ಹೀರೋನಾ?
`ಜಗ್ಗು ದಾದಾ'ನ ದರ್ಶನ ಪಡೆದು ಹೊರಬಂದ ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕನಿಗೆ ಕಾಡುವ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆ ಇದು. ಯಾಕೆಂದರೆ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಅಂದ್ರೆ ಮಾಸ್ ಹೀರೋ. ಆ್ಯಕ್ಷನ್ ಕಿಂಗ್. ಆದರೆ ಆ ಇಮೇಜ್ ಅನ್ನು ದಾಟಿ ಕಾಮಿಡಿ ರೌಡಿಯಾಗಿಯೂ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳನ್ನು ರಂಜಿಸಬಲ್ಲರು ಎನ್ನುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಸಾಕ್ಷಿ `ಜಗ್ಗುದಾದಾ'. ಚಿತ್ರತಂಡವು ಮೊದಲೇ ಹೇಳಿದಂತೆ ಇದೊಂದು ಪಕ್ಕಾ ಕೌಟುಂಬಿಕ ಮನರಂಜನಾತ್ಮಕ ಚಿತ್ರ ಎನ್ನುವುದರಲ್ಲಿ ಅನುಮಾನವೇ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೆ, ಇಡೀ ಚಿತ್ರ ಶೀರ್ಷಿಕೆಯ ಜಪ್ತಿಗೂ ಸಿಗದೆ ಕಾಮಿಡಿಯನ್ನೇ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಆವರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದೆ. ಆದರೂ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳಿಗಾಗಿಯೇ `ಜಗ್ಗುದಾದಾ' ಹೆಸರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾಡಿರುವ ರುಚಿಕಟ್ಟಾದ ಮಿಕ್ಸ್ ಮಸಾಲ ಚಿತ್ರ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ವಿಶೇಷ.

ಶಂಕರ್ ದಾದಾ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿಗೇ ದೊಡ್ಡ ಡಾನ್. ಆತನ ಮಗ ಕೂಡ ಅಷ್ಟೇ ಕುಖ್ಯಾತಿ. ಅಜ್ಜ, ಅಪ್ಪನ ಹಾಗೆ ಮೂರನೇ ತಲೆಮಾರು `ಜಗ್ಗುದಾದಾ'ನದ್ದು ಅದೇ ಹಾದಿ. ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಅಂಡರ್‍ವಲ್ರ್ಡ್‍ನಲ್ಲಿ ಆತನದ್ದೂ ದೊಡ್ಡ ಹೆಸರು. ಆದರೆ, ತನ್ನಂತೆಯೇ ಮೊಮ್ಮಗ ಜಗ್ಗು, ರೌಡಿ ಆಗುವುದು ಶಂಕರ್ ದಾದಾನಿಗೆ ಇಷ್ಟ ಆಗೋದಿಲ್ಲ. ರೌಡಿ ಎನ್ನುವವನಿಗೆ ಗೌರವ `Àಯದಿಂದ ಸಿಗುತ್ತದೆಯೇ ಹೊರತು, ಮೌಲ್ಯಗಳಿಂದಲ್ಲ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಆತನಿಗೆ ಎದುರಾದ ನೋವು. ಆ ಕಾರಣಕ್ಕೆ ಜಗ್ಗುನ ದಾದಾಗಿರಿಗೆ ತಾತನz್ದÉೀ ಅಡ್ಡಿ. ಜಗ್ಗುಗೆ ಸಂಪ್ರದಾಯಸ್ಥ ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಹೆಣ್ಣನ್ನು ತಂದು ಮದುವೆ ಮಾಡಿಸಿದರೆ ಆತ ರೌಡಿ ಪಟ್ಟದಿಂದ ದೂರವಾಗುತ್ತಾನೆ ಎನ್ನುವ ಆಸೆ. ಅದಕ್ಕಂತಲೇ ಜಗ್ಗುವಿನಿಂದ ಆಣೆ ಪ್ರಮಾಣ ಪಡೆಯುತ್ತಾನೆ. ತಾತನಿಗೆ ಕೊಟ್ಟ ಮಾತು ಪೂರೈಸಲು ಸಂಪ್ರದಾಯಸ್ಥ ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಹುಡುಗಿಯನ್ನು ಹುಡುಕುತ್ತಾ ಹೋಗುವ ಜಗ್ಗು ಏನೆಲ್ಲ ಸವಾಲುಗಳನ್ನು ಎದುರಿಸುತ್ತಾನೆ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಈ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಕತೆ.

ಶಂಕರ್ ದಾದಾ, ಆ ನಂತರ ಆತನ ಮಗ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಅಂಡರ್‍ವಲ್ರ್ಡ್‍ನಲ್ಲಿ ದೊಡ್ಡ ರೌಡಿಗಳಾದಾಗ ಅವರ ಕುಟುಂಬಕ್ಕಿರುವ ಘನತೆಯೇ ಬೇರೆ. ಆ ನಂತರ ಜಗ್ಗು ದಾದಾ. ಇಡೀ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನ ಅಂಡರ್‍ವಲ್ರ್ಡ್‍ಗೆ ತಾನೇ ಡಾನ್ ಆಗಬೇಕು, ಕೋಟ್ಯಂತರ ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಹಪ್ತಾ ಅನಾಮತ್ತಾಗಿ ಕೈ ಸೇರಬೇಕು ಎನ್ನುವ ಹಂಬಲದಲ್ಲಿರುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಒಮ್ಮೆ ತನ್ನ ತಂದೆಗೆ ವಿರೋಧಿಗಳು ಅಡ್ಡಿಯಾದಾಗ, ಜಗ್ಗು ಎಂಟ್ರಿ ಪಡೆಯುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಅದೊಂದು ಹೊಡೆದಾಟ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಆ್ಯಕ್ಷನ್ ಹೀರೋ ಎನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ಮತ್ತೊಮ್ಮೆ ಸಾಭೀತು ಪಡಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳ ಶಿಳ್ಳೆ ಕೇಕೆಗಳು ಮುಗಿಲು ಮುಟ್ಟುತ್ತವೆ. ಅಲ್ಲಿಂದಾಚೆಗೆ ಜಗ್ಗು ದಾದಾ ಕಾಮಿಡಿ ರೌಡಿಯಾಗಿ ಪರಿವರ್ತನೆ ಹೊಂದುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಈ ಕಾಮಿಡಿ ಪ್ರದರ್ಶನ ಕ್ಲೆ`ಮ್ಯಾಕ್ಸ್ ತನಕ ಸಾಗಿ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ. ಕಾಮಿಡಿ ಕಿಕ್ ಒಮ್ಮೊಮ್ಮೆ ಅಧಿಕವೂ ಆಗುವುದರಿಂದ ಎಲ್ಲಿಂದ ನಗಬೇಕೆನ್ನುವುದೇ ಗೊತ್ತಾಗೋದಿಲ್ಲ.

`ಶಂಕರ್ ದಾದಾ ಎಂಬಿಬಿಎಸ್', ಅಥವಾ `ಮುನ್ನಾ ಬಾಯಿ ಎಂಬಿಬಿ ಎಸ್' ಚಿತ್ರ ನೋಡಿದವರಿಗೆ ಇದೇನು ಹೊಸದಲ್ಲ. ದೊಡ್ಡ ದಾದಾ, ಕಾಮಿಡಿಗೆ ಸಿಲುಕಿದಾಗ ಇದೆಲ್ಲವೂ ಮಾಮೂಲು. ಆದರೆ, ನಟ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಇದೇ ಮೊದಲ ಬಾರಿಗೆ ಕಾಮಿಡಿ ರೌಡಿಯ ಪಾತ್ರದೊಳಗೆ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದರಿಂದ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಇಷ್ಟವಾಗುವುದು ಈ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಪ್ಲಸ್ ಪಾಯಿಂಟ್. ಇದು ಚಿತ್ರ ಕತೆಯ ವಿಚಾರ. ಇನ್ನು ತಾಂತ್ರಿಕ ಕೆಲಸಗಳತ್ತ ಬಂದರೆ, ಈ ಚಿತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕ ಕಂ ನಿರ್ಮಾಪಕರೂ ಆಗಿರುವ ರಾಘವೇಂದ್ರ ಎರಡನ್ನು ಕತ್ತಿಯ ಅಲುಗಿನ ಮೇಲೆ ನಿಂತು ನಿ`Áಯಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕರಾಗಿ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳಿಗೆ ತಕ್ಕಂತೆ ಕತೆಯನ್ನು ಹೊಸದೊಂದು `Áಟಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ತೋರಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಮತ್ತೊಂದೆಡೆ ಕತೆಗೆ ತಕ್ಕಂತೆ ಅದ್ದೂರಿ ವೆಚ್ಚದಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಚಿತ್ರ ನಿರ್ಮಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಇವೆರಡು ಅವರಿಗೆ ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕೈ ಹಿಡಿದಿವೆ.
ಅದ್ಧೂರಿಯಾಗಿಯೂ ಚಿತ್ರವನ್ನು ತೆರೆಗೆ ತಂದಿರುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಣುವ ಲೋಕೇಷನ್‍ಗಳು ಕೂಡ ಸಾಕ್ಷಿ ನೀಡುತ್ತವೆ. ಆದರೂ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಇದ್ದು ಮುಂಬೈ ತೋರಿಸಿದ್ದು ನೋಡುಗನ ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ರಾಚುತ್ತದೆ. ವೇಣು ಅವರ ಕ್ಯಾಮೆರಾ ಕೆಲಸ ಗಮನ ಸೆಳೆಯುತ್ತದೆ. ಸಂಗೀತದಲ್ಲಿ ಹರಿಕೃಷ್ಣ ಇಷ್ಟವಾಗುತ್ತಾರೆ. `ತಲೆ ಕೆಡುತೆ ಹುಡುಗಿ' ಎನ್ನುವ ಮೆಲೋಡಿ ಸಾಂಗ್ ಕೇಳುಗರಿಗೆ ಆಪ್ತವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಉಳಿದಂತೆ ಅವರ ಕೆಲಸದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಹೇಳುವುದಕ್ಕೇನು ಇಲ್ಲ. ಆರಂ`Àದಲ್ಲಿ ಎದುರಾಗುವ ಒಂದು ಆ್ಯಕ್ಷನ್ ಸನ್ನಿವೇಶದಿಂದಲೇ ರಾಮ್ ಲಕ್ಷ್ಣಣ್ ಅವರು ಖದರ್ ಗೊತ್ತಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಗ್ರಾಫಿಕ್ಸ್ ತುಸು ಹೆಚ್ಚೇ ಆಗಿದೆ. ಯೂನಸ್ ಚಿತ್ರಕತೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಪಂಕಜ್ ಶರ್ಮಾ ಅವರ ಸಂಕಲನ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಓಟಕ್ಕೆ ಸಾಥ್ ನೀಡಿವೆ.

ಇದು ಬಹು ತಾರಾಗಣದ ಚಿತ್ರವೂ ಹೌದು. ದರ್ಶನ್, ದೀಕ್ಷಾ ಸೇಠ್, ಅನಂತ್ ನಾಗ್, ಸೃಜನ್ ಲೋಕೇಶ್, ಗಾಯತ್ರಿ ಐಯ್ಯರ್, ಊರ್ವಶಿ, ಶರತ್ ಲೋಹಿತಾಶ್ವ, ರವಿಶಂಕರ್, ಬುಲೆಟ್ ಪ್ರಕಾಶ್ ಸೇರಿದಂತೆ ಬಹಳಷ್ಟು ಕಲಾವಿದರು ಈ ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಆರಂ`Àದಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಹೇಳಿದಂತೆ ನಟ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಇದುವರೆಗಿನ ತಮ್ಮ ಇಮೇಜ್ ದಾಟಿ ಕಾಲಕ್ಕೆ ತಕ್ಕಂತೆ ಕಾಮಿಡಿ ರೌಡಿಯಾಗಿಯೂ ರಂಜಿಸಬಲ್ಲರು ಎನ್ನುವುದನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಅವರ ನಟನೆ, ಸಾಹಸ, ನೃತ್ಯ ಎಲ್ಲವೂ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಮೆಚ್ಚುಗೆ. ನಾಯಕಿ ದೀಕ್ಷಾ ಅಭಿನಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಪೇಲವ. ಸಂ`Áಷಣೆ ಸಂದ`ರ್Àದಲ್ಲಿ ಮುಖದಲ್ಲಿ ಹಾವ`Áವಗಳೇ ಕಾಣೋದಿಲ್ಲ. ಶಂಕರ್ ದಾದಾ ಆಗಿ ನಟ ರವಿಶಂಕರ್ ಅವರ ನಟನೆ ಕ್ಲೆ`ಮ್ಯಾಕ್ಸ್ ತನಕವೂ ಕಿಕ್ ಕೊಡುತ್ತದೆ. ಶರತ್ ಲೋಹಿತಾಶ್ವ, ಊರ್ವಶಿ, ಗಾಯತ್ರಿ ಐಯ್ಯರ್, ಅನಂತ್ ನಾಗ್ ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ತಮ್ಮ ಪಾತ್ರಗಳಿಗೆ ನ್ಯಾಯ ಒದಗಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಅತಿಥಿ ಪಾತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ರಚಿತಾ ರಾಮ್ ಹಾಗೆ ಬಂದು ಹೀಗೆ ಮರೆಯಾಗುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಸಾ`Éೂೀಕೋಕಿಲ ಕೂಡ ಅಷ್ಟೇ. ಒಟ್ಟಾರೆ ಈ ಚಿತ್ರ ದರ್ಶನ್ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳಿಗಾಗಿಯೇ ಬಂದಂತಿದೆ.
