Ninasam Manju’s Kanneri which has been spoken about for its unique and real content, has once again grabbed eyeballs. This time because for the fact that none other than actor Tara released the trailer of the film. “I’m so excited by what I saw. The trailer has raised curiosity in me and according to what Ninasam Manju says the film highlights the travails of tribals and their loss of a home in the forests.
It has happened in Coorg and this makes me curious to watch the film. I’m sure audiences will be eager to watch this movie too,” says Tara. Kanneri is Ninasam Manju’s pet project and is a woman-centric film that highlights the condition of tribals who lose their home in the forests owing to deforestation. It deals with the Diddalli incident that sees a section of tribals who lived in the lap of nature and envisioned a beautiful life for themselves but get evicted and go through a major upheaval in their life, especially the women.
The story also has a thread from the novel Ksheera Sagara’s Jenu Akashada Aramane that has also influenced the film. Archana Madhusudan plays the protagonist and is joined by Anita Bhat, Arun Sagar, Karisubbu and MK Math in the cast.
Kanneri has been shot rather realistically and captured in places like Bangalore, HD Kote and Kolar. Ganesh Hegde has captured the movie brilliantly through his camera and Sachin Nayak has lent his ace skills as editor. The film has been produced by Buddhideepa Cinema House Banner by PP Hebbar and Chandrashekhar Hebbar.
