Looking at the cinematic trends in Sandalwood, there is no sidelining the fact that even without A-listers, films are guaranteeing an audience if there is crisp content. And, a film like Kendasampige: : Part II Ginimari Case which will release this week, seems to have a good chance. Director Suri is confident with the timing and is sure that the current trend will see it through.
“Time is unpredictable and in a way it makes every filmmaker to worry whether his film is releasing at the right time. This film was made 11 months ago when commercial flicks were ruling. Thankfully, Kendasampige... is coming at a time when films like Rangitaranga and Aatagara are already doing well in the market. Today the movie watching is different than in my Duniya days, which is of course, a good sign,” he says.
According to Suri, the film, which has newcomers Manvitha and Vicky, is more like a small celebration when compared to a big budget film like his Jackie, Anna Bond, Kaddipudi and Doddamane Huduga which is now in the making. “Kendasampige is sure to give equal joy irrespective of it being is on a smaller canvas with a new cast,” he says and adds that he brought in the newcomers because he needed fresh characters. “I am lucky to have the two new faces. They understood the concept and acted accordingly. While Manvitha’s Kannada is good because of her RJ experience, Vicky knows different aspects of the filmmaking,” he says. On the time taken over the completion of his film, Suri asserts that his film is completely based on the screenplay and one cut would have messed up the whole film. “We had to go the extra mile to ensure that there was nothing out of place for the Censors to point out. Luckily, the Censors approved every bit of my movie,” he says.
While any Suri release comes with huge expectations, he states that he has worked on different concepts in terms of screenplay in Kendasampige. “I am quite satisfied with the result. And, I am releasing it with the confidence that the film will be liked by the audience,” he says.
