Corruption is a hot topic in the country now. When Anna Hazare came forward with his anti-corruption campaign, the country stood by him and the movement gave voice to the youth. Now, a group of young movie makers have come together to make a short film based on corruption. Their aim is to expose the world to the fight
Stop Corruption is a 15-minute film directed by new comer Jagadish Rao H. The film focuses on a poor family’s day-to-day life and how the harsh reality of corruption touches every stage of their life. “The film was shot over five days in Bangalore. We had a cast of fresh and veteran actors,” said the director. Since the anti-corruption theme touched a chord with the artistes, the cast and crew members agreed to do the film for free.
The producer of the film, Karthik V, said, “We have celebrities like Puneeth Rajkumar, Sreeshanth and Sayed Kirmani and fashion guru Prasad Biddappa supporting the cause by making guest appearances in the film.”
Popular theatre artist Vishwanath Rangashilpi, who plays the male protagonist in the film, said, “The film has an agenda: To be beneficial to people in someway.” It intends to motivate people to voice strongly against corruption.
“We have used strong realistic elements and situations in the film that the common man can relate to,” said Sowmya, the female lead. It is not always necessary to make a two-hour long movie to get a message across, they say.
The film is produced by Avighna Productions
