MR MOMMAGA PICKS UP MOMENTUM AT BOX-OFFICE
M
r Mommaga has picked up momentum at the box-office from Monday, according to the film’s distributor Navarasan.

He told reporters that collections for the movie were poor during the first three days of release. But, collections improved on Monday in a turnaround and the movie has since been collecting about Rs 1 lakh a day especially in the rural areas. He said the film is likely to become a hit if the trends are anything to go by.

Producer and hero Ravi Gowda said thanks to positive media reviews people are coming to watch the movie in the theatres. He said Rangayana Raghu’s acting is the highlight of the movie and added that the film’s director N Ragavan will visit Bengaluru soon and will meet the media next time.

Bullet Prakash said he was happy to be part of the team that is beaming with joy. However, he complained that dialogue writer Malavalli Saikrishna had not written his name when he had mentioned all the artistes names for whom he had come up with specific dialogues.

Malavalli Saikrishna said the producer and director had worked united and that is the reason the movie seems to be doing well.

Producer Raghu Gowda said the film turned out to be a big budget movie even though it was planned to be a small budget movie. However, he said he is not unhappy as people are appreciating the movie and collections are improving at the box-office.

MR MOMMAGA TO RELEASE IN SANTOSH, 200 OTHER THEATRES
M
r Mommaga, a remake of Tamil hit Manjapai will now release on May 27 in about 200 theatres all over Karnataka with Santosh being the main theatre. Navarasan will be distributing the film in the state. The film is produced by twin brothers Ravi Gowda and Raghu Gowda and is directed by Ragavan who directed the Tamil version. The film marks the debut of Ravi Gowda as an actor and it also stars Oviya who had acted as the female lead in Kirataka, Rangayana Raghu, Avinash and Sadhu Kokila among others.


Ravi Gowda told reporters that he wanted to do a family-oriented film. He said his dream of making a film fructified after six years. He said Navarasan suggested this Tamil film to be remade into Kannada. He said the director of the Tamil film Ragavan expressed his desire to direct the Kannada version as well. Ravi Gowda said he never felt that he was acting after a while as he got into the character.

Ravi Gowda said the film was made possible only because of Rangayana Raghu’s support and dedication. He said he has no father or grandfather in real life but Rangayana Raghu gave him that feeling. He thanked his brother Raghu Gowda for supporting him in producing the film together. He said director had laid emphasis on nativity. He said Rangayana Raghu is a big fan of Dr Rajkumar in the film and so is he and added Annavru’s blessings made it possible for them to complete the film.

Raghu Gowda said they had invested Rs 5 crore on making of the film and added that the Kannada version is better than the Tamil version.

Navarasan said he was doubtful whether Raghu would come on board but Rangayana Raghu easily accepted the offer made to him. He said Raghu has sported a beard and walked barefoot in the shoot. He also announced that he intends to remake Rathavara in Tamil and was waiting for Vishal’s nod to start the film.

Rangayana Raghu said the Tamil film is intense while thanking the original team for making a good film. However, he said the Kannada team should make original films henceforth. He said he did not watch the original after he started working in the film as he wanted to bring his originality.

He said today’s society is losing out on pleasure of having grandparents. Urbanisation has affected all of us, he said as people are leading hi-tech lives. He said even old age homes have become hi-tech and added that the audiences appreciation means a lot to him.

Rajashekar Naidu said Mr Mommaga is a good film with a good subject. It is worth watching for people who do not have grandparents or those who have lost them or even to understand how grandparents are if someone missed them in their lives.

Malavalli Saikrishna has written the dialogues. Raghunandan has scored the music. Rasamathi is the cinematographer. The film has got a U certificate from the censors.
