What is this RR on BB? Rangayana Raghu the pride of character roles today in Kannada cinema hailing from theatres has learnt to overcome boredom botheration in theatres and he is applying same principles in cinema.
When theatre is the base there we get to experiment and look at the reactions. When one of the plays 'Mid Summer Night' was staged my mentor BV Karanth advised to slowly change from one format to another. In the dialogues, histrionics and physical movements the change should be given when an actor is feeling bore and monotonous. The same thing Rangayana Raghu has tried in giving modulations in dialogues and pitch of dialogues. It worked out and he was able to study the best received by the audience.
In the cinema field also Rangayana Raghu has done variety of roles and he is a real winner in dialogue delivery. Monotony is botheration in cinema he agrees. For that he has the medicine of changing on the spot for better and convincing the director. When it is newcomers the convincing is easy but in other cases we are told to do what is said. In such cases I keep quiet he quips.
Rangayana Raghu remembers the days of learning with a mentor like BV Karanth. I was interested in acting and he asked me to learn harmonium. I was worrying a lot because I may have to settle in Harmonium instrument. After sometime when I thought of moving out to acting the same mentor recognized me and pushed to go to further level.
A good analyst on various topics Rangayana Raghu has observed that films of today in Kannada is related to only youths. We are not doing films for 30 to 70 age groups. There is room for it and contents are also available he feels.
The blind belief of following success is still happening. For this the song of Prof Nissar Ahmed 'Kurigalu Saar Kurigalu...strikes the mind of Rangayana Raghu.
