You want to proudly flaunt Kannada films to your non-Kannadiga friends, don’t you? You want Kannada film industry to come out of the routine stuff and stand tall like a soldier decorated with experimental films. Don’t you? We know you do. That is exactly why a film like Rangitaranga or Kendasapige has to win. They have to win big. They have to win “Entire Gandhi Nagara sits and takes notice” big !! Any industry can grow beyond its perceived limitations only if movies that cater to all kinds of viewers are made. We grow only when we watch good movies that push the boundaries. And we watch such movies only when we have grown!! It is our duty to make sure that something like Kendasampige is not let down.
Suri is the type of director who makes ‘impossible’ seem like a Rajnikanth joke. He is someone who to our pleasure thinks like a painter(You can not possibly go wrong when Sathya Hegde wields the brush!!). Sadly, a film like this is losing theaters. You kill a film like this and you kill 10 such experimental films that are sprouting. If One experimental film fails that will be reason enough for Gandhi Nagara to turn down 10 such scripts.We definitely don’t want that to happen. Our dreams for the Kannada industry are larger than life. The least we can do is to make sure that a film like Kendasampige wins. What are you waiting for ? Go watch it. Send your friends to the movie! Recommend the film to your non- kannadiga friends. We have the responsibility of making good films win at the box office and this is your chance. Go grab the chance!!
