When it comes to titles of films, few directors are exceptional in Indian film industry. Title is like an invitation card, which makes audience curious of the film. In Kannada, Suri is known for unique titles in his film. His films like “Anna Bond”, “Kenda Sampige” and “Tagaru” have got good response for their titles.
In Coatsalwood, if there is one director who can match Suri in this matter is none other than Sooraj Shetty. The numero uno director of Coastalwood is ready with his next. Few months back, in an exclusive interview with SeeandSay.in, Sooraj had revealed that he will be directing a new film after he completes “Ammer Polisa”. And now the details of his next are out.
He will be working on a comedy film, which has been titled as “Non Veg”. Prajwal Pandeshwar will reportedly play the male lead. The female lead is yet to be finalised. The film will have fresh faces. The film will be an unique attempt, as the film will be jointly produced by technicians and members of the crew.
There are two reasons for Sooraj to do this. First he wants to decrease the budget of the film. Secondly he wants his team members to earn from the film. Normally Sooraj’s films are sure shot blockbusters at box office.
“Non Veg” will also be a comic caper with a good message. Sooraj wants to do something unique with this film and will reveal more details about this soon. Meanwhile it looks like “English”, which he had announced has been shelved. Sooraj Shetty had announced that his third film will be “English”, which was reportedly to star Mayur Rai in lead. The film was expected to be crowd funded. But it looks like the film has been shelved at moments. Sooraj would be better person to answer this.
On the other hand, Sooraj’s third film as director, “Ammer Polisa” is ready. The film, which is in post production phase is aiming to release in March. The shooting of the film was completed in a 24-day schedule. The film is said to have a story which deals with a day’s events. Roopesh Shetty and Pooja Shetty will be seen in the lead role. Aravind Bolar, Sathish Bandale, Prasanna Shetty, Vismay Vinayak, Mime Ramdas, Deepak Rai and others will also be seen in the film. Arjun Lewis has written the lyrics and Sandeep Ballal has composed the music. Sachin S Shetty has handled cinematography. Rajesh B Shetty has produced the film.
Sooraj Shetty is the only director along with Devdas Kapikad to have hundred percent record. He has given two blockbusters to Coastalwood with “Ekka Sakka” and “Pilibail Yamunakka”. He is known for making message oriented film in a comedy way. He is currently the only director in Coastalwood, wherein people do not care much about cast and come forward to watch the film.
Even though he has been offered to direct many Kannada films, Sooraj is taking his own time. He wants to concentrate on Tulu films as of now and is working towards improving the market of Tulu films in other parts of country.
