The must awaited audio and teaser of first ever Tulu graphical movie Umil was released by power star Puneeth Raj Kumar. The film is directed by Ranjith Suvarna and produced by Karunakar Shetty and Prajnesh. The VFX work of the film was completed in Canada.
The movie Umesh Mijar playing the lead role for the first time in his career.. Pooja Shetty is the female lead in the film. Naveen D Padil, Aravind Bolar, Bhojaraj Vamanjoor, Chethan Rai Mani, Sathish Bandale and Deepak Rai will be seen in prominent roles.
Power star Puneeth Rajkumar has rendered his voice for a Tulu song. Puneeth, who is known for singing many Kannada songs has sung the title song of the film, which is ‘Ravond Bathnd Umil’. The lyrics of the song are written by Keerthan Bhandary and the music is provided by Ravi Basrur.
Actors Aravind Bolar and Arjun Kapikad have sung two songs written by Keerthan Bhandary. Umesh Mijar too has sung a song written by Prashanth C K. The teaser of the film has met with good response. The graphics in the film were only revealed in teaser and it looks very interesting. With Aravind Bolar’s voice in teaser, audience can expect a comic flavour in this graphical film.
The audio as well as teaser of the film has been released in PRK Audio. The audio company is owned by Puneeth Rajkumar and has many popular films like Tagaru and Anjaniputra in it’s profile. Umil has become the first Tulu film to be acquired by PRK Audio, which is a very good sign for Coastalwood.
The main reason for Puneeth to be associated with Umil is said to be Ravi Basrur. The popular Kannada music director has associated with Puneeth twice. Ravi basrur had got Puneeth to sing a somng in his Kunda Kannada film Bilinder few years back. Last year, he had composed music for Puneeth’s film Anjaniputra. This was the first film of PRK Audio as well. The songs of the film were big hit especially Chanda Chanda, which became a rage online.
It looks like Umil team has got a lucky charm in form of Puneeth. Due to Puneeth’s support fans in other parts of Karnataka are also interested in the film. Just look at the comments section in Youtube, you will be surprised.
This trend of big Kannada superstar supporting Tulu film is a welcome move. We hope Puneeth Rajkumar supports more Tulu films. He not only has audio company, but also a production house and we hope he produces more Tulu films in near future.
Meanwhile teaser of Umil is big hit. The teaser is getting good response everywhere. Ranjith Suvarna has won the first battle. He will be releasing the film in October. Let us wait and watch how the film is received by audience.
