Film on Umesh Reddy

IndiaGlitz [Wednesday, February 20, 2013]

A film on psychopath, serial killer and rapist Umesh Reddy is now all set to go on the floors in Kannada cinema with the same name 'Umesh Reddy'. The culprit behind the bars for his 20 and odd rape and killing of women is not the right thought the media shot back when the film team invited for a briefing.

What good things a director can show other than rape and killing of women? On this issue the media protested and it is not right thought to keep the title 'Umesh Reddy'. Not expecting such a hit back the debut director Malavalli Saikrishna and producer Aditya Ramesh were shell shocked. Senior comedy actor, director and music director Sadhu Kokila present at the media briefing advised the producer and director to take a look at media observations and make changes.

After the success of film 'Dhandupalya' (a gang of killers) there is mood with some of the directors and producers to pick subjects on the similar lines. Umesh Reddy is one such subject.

The Supreme Court upheld the death sentence of former police constable Umesh Reddy, alias B A Umesh, who was convicted of the gruesome rape and murder of a widow in Bangalore 12 years ago. It said the manner of committing the offence brings it within the category of "rarest of rare" cases.

Malavalli Saikrishna and team is sure to bring some changes in the title and concept after heated debate with the media. The film is going on the floor on March 4. Ravikaale is playing title role. Roopika, Sadhi kokila, Bullet Prakash are in the cast.
