Lyricist-turned-director Kaviraj is right on track with his first film Maduveya Mamatheya Kareyole produced under the banner of Thoogudeepa. He recently finished shooting a song with the lead pair on the streets of Bengaluru. “It goes, ‘Hudugi kiyaa etu yaake eshtu sweetu...hodakondu hogle bitlu edda onde heartu,’ and comes at a point when the heroine slaps the hero and he retorts, with love. The song was choreographed by Murali master and was shot at Acharya College, Orion Mall, JP Park, Zen Park and I Park with colourful costumes,” Kaviraj says.
Amulya wears a tomboyish look in the song, while Suraj Gowda sports stylish,sleeveless T-shirts. “The uniqueness of this song lies with the background dancers. A group of 12 boys and girls were divided into four groups and each group had different costumes. You get to see a lot of hues in the background and it looks very different from the regular backdrop,” he says.
Up next, Kaviraj will shoot two more songs in Malaysia in September.With that, the project will be completed. “After much thought, we decided on Malaysia because it has urban locales as well as beaches in one place,” he says.
Before heading to Malaysia, Kaviraj will shoot a few portions in Chikkamagaluru, where Amulya is currently shooting for Krishna - Rukku. “We have kept only four songs and three will run on full tracks, while the other will play along with the scenes,” he further says.
The team hopes to release Maduveya Mamatheya Kareyole in December and so far, they’ve stuck to the schedule. “Everything has gone as per our plan and we will complete the talky portions and the songs by the first week of October. Meanwhile, I have also been busy editing and hope to complete the dubbing quicly. We are hoping for a smooth release,” he says.
