Moves


If you are a chess player, you will know the thrill in WINning a game through SACRIFICEs!

I mean BOTH ON the BOARD...

Though my chess-life didn't last more than 5 years... it had lot of thrills and sacrifices, many of them off the board! But that span was sufficient to learn the game on the life-board...

And to sustain that passion for that time, one person indirectly influenced me through his 'genius-moves'. If you can read chess-moves, you can take a glimpse at The Game of the Century.

He is none other than Bobby Fischer, the greatest chess player of all time who refused to defend his world title in 1975 and known to walk out of matches and tournaments for bad lighting and air-conditioning!

Last week he was checkmated by another brilliant player who is also my inspiration for my current game!

Next Mungaru Male


What happens if you go back 1.5 years in time and ask Yogaraj Bhat to make a different movie than Mungaru Male by giving 3 times more budget, a star, lot-of-expectation?

He makes Mungaru Male and names it 'Gaalipata'!

ಮಿಂಚಾಗಿ ಈಪಟ ಬರಲು,
ಮಾತಲ್ಲೆ ಮುಳುಗಿದೆ ಸಿನಿಮಾ...

ತಣ್ಣಗೆ ನೋಡುತಲಿರಲು,
ಹಳೆಯದೆ ಹರಿಕಥೆ ಗಾನ...

ಭಟ್ಟರ ಭೇಟೆ ಕಂಡು...
ಮನಸಲಿ ನಾ ಮಲಗಿದೆ ಇಂದು...
ಇನ್ನೆಲ್ಲಿ ಮುಗಿಲ ಹಾರಾಟ...

A Flashback...

As a Kannada Movie Lover... I recommend you to watch this movie as a decent entertainer. It will always be better than other 'meetru' movies that we often see :-)

But as a 'virtual' filmmaker...

Is Gaalipata, the next Mungaaru Male?

YES
I say YES...
I repeat YES...

Not in terms of its 'future' success... money making or in creating a star...

It is ANOTHER Mungaaru Male... in terms of...
~ same RAIN
~ same atmosphere
~ same HERO, similar type PROTAGONIST, same CHARACTERISATION
~ similar DIALOGUES
~ similar STORY/SCRIPT/EDITING mistakes

ನನೈ ನನನೈ
ನನೈ ನನನೈ
ನನೈ ನನನೈ ನೈ
ನನೈ ನನನೈ...

ಧೂಳಿಪಟ...
