Balaraj back!

Tuesday, May 19, 2009 • Kannada Comments

The close relative of Dr. Rajakumar family actor Balaraj now finding a cake walk in television serials is returning back to big screen after ‘Olu Saar Olu’ made four years ago.

Balaraj as village educated youngster who focuses on cultivation and live on par with any technocrat in ‘Mannina Madilu’ has great confidence on the success of this film because of the message tucked in it. As a wayward youth not getting the right job Balaraj gives a right thinking (like how Dr. Rajakumar does in ‘Bangaradha Manushya) and forges ahead with top crops from his agricultural fields. With good reach from television serials it would be easy to find the audience to the theatres for this film ‘Mannina Madilu’ says Balaraj.

Sangeetha an II PUC student from Seshadripuram College Bangalore is playing village belle. She is the daughter of village chieftain. The role is very interesting and my acquaintance with cultural activities (learning dance from Ms Vandhya Srinath) has helped me a lot says sweet looking Sangeetha. Sangeetha’s mother plays a small role in yesteryears ‘Muruvara Vajragalu’ of Dr. Rajakumar.

Munesh a businessman heading Poorva Concrete Blocks came in touch through a common friend Rajath to take up this village and value based cinema.

Sangam the assistant in the camp of Mudduraj and Maheshkumar is independently taken up this film and completed in 15 days two call sheets a day. He has shot for this film in Mandya, Mysore surroundings. The parents hope for better future of children. As they grow lose track brings in lot of disappointment for them. Besides this the hero not opting for government job and remaining in his village to carve a good future is main focus in the film says Sangam.

Kabir a drummer by profession is scoring music for five songs. Chandrakanth is doing the re-recording for this film. BL Babu is the cameraman of ‘Mannina Madilu’.
