Bengaluru: Ninasam Manju’s Kanneri has been getting a lot of attention for its unique and real content. And this time it’s for the melodious lyrical video titled Nela Irada Kaalu and it has been getting rave reviews from audiences. Released by Sunil Puranik, the head of Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy, Nele Irada Kaalu, is a soulful number penned by V Raghu Shastry and has been wonderfully rendered by Vani Harikrishna. The same warm reception was previously also accorded to the track Betta Kanivegala that was loved by fans.
Meanwhile, Kanneri is a women-centric movie that is based on a moving tale that unfolded in Coorg three years ago. 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 got evicted, thus going 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. Kanneri has been produced under the banner of Buddideepa Cinema House and PP Hebbar and is slated for release shortly.
