Looks like there is no shortfall for Tulu films as many films are getting completed. Now the big question is when will these films get released, with shortage of theatre. Adding to the list if films completed is Tulu film ‘Dagalbaajilu’, produced by Santhosh Shetty Kumble. The team has completed the shooting of the film.
The film which has been directed by A S Prashanth was shot around Moodbidri. Kannada film “Uggram” fame stunt director Ultimate Shivu choreographed a few action scenes on Narahari mountain, which is said to be one of the main highlight of the film. As we all know, “Ugramm” is one of the best ever action films to have come out in Sandalwood and Ultimate Shivu is said to be one of the reason for that. We can expect the same in “Dagalbaajilu” as well.
Suresh Anchan has written the story, screenplay, dialogues and lyrics. The film is a comic entertainer, with many light heated scenes. But it will also have emotional connect with audience. Well-known music director R D Varman and Sandesh Babu will compose music for the film. There will be five songs sung by Vijay Prakash, Anuradha Bhat, Rajesh Krishnan, and Patla Sathish Shetty.
Naveen D Padil and Deepak Rai will play pivotal roles in the film. Vignesh and Rashmika will play the lead pair along with Priya Hegde and Neema Ray. Aravind Bolar, Bhojaraj Vamajoor, Sathish Bandale, Umesh Mijar, Chethan Rai Mani, Sunil Nelligudde and others will also be seen in the film.
The film has created some hype. But the problem is if the film can create impact on box office. We have seen several high profile Tulu films failing in box office. Therefore it will be very difficult for Tulu films to succeed without good marketing campaign. Makers of “Dagalbaajilu” have to concentrate on marketing the film, if they have to succeed. Only a good marketing film, with good content can succeed in box office.
