Kannada film industry is going through a much-needed transition phase from past few years. Several new faces are getting a firm hold in the industry with their fine craft. Recent blockbuster Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shale Kasaragodu is a clear example for that. Fate of the same film would have been totally different if it had been released 5 years ago. But with changing perceptions and benchmarks, films being made in Kannada have become more realistic and rooted. Theater director/ actor Champa Shetty’s debut film Ammachi Yemba Nenapu is clearly showing all the signs of yet another master film making in Kannada. The movie is based on three short stories [ Akku, Puttamatte mattu Mommagalu and Ammachi Yemba Nenapu] by critically acclaimed Kannada writer Vaidehi. Trailer of the film has been released recently.
Trailer which starts with a beautiful conversation between two girls with modest expectations and dreams regarding life and marriage mildly sheds light on the life of lead character Akku. Subsequent frames depict the struggle of freedom in a conservative and male dominated society. Fine cinematography and the heart-warming background score are clearly the major highlights of this film.Thanks to the picturesque locations and fine craftsmanship of cinematographer, every frame in the trailer looks like a beautiful painting. Director has clearly succeeded in capturing the time and space in which the story has been taken place. The movie has a strong cast including the talented Raj B Shetty who stole everyone’s heart with his acting and directorial debut “Ondu Motteya Kathe” released in 2017.
Principal star cast of the film includes Raj B Shetty, Vyjayanti Adiga, Dr. Radhakrishna Ural, Diya Palakka etc Ammachi Yemba Nenapu is set for a state-wide release on November 1,2018.
