Mayuri is now Meera

Mayuri is now all set to act in Vismaya Pranaya, her first Kannada film after Dhimaku

Mayuri is now Meera


Explains Mayuri, “This role has scope to perform and offers a challenge as Meera’s character slowly transforms. I am confident about this script,” she says. She should be, as director Mohan Mallapalli outlined the entire story in chaste Kannada.  According to him, Meera and her sister Arpita (newcomer Madhusmitha) are raised by their mother (Hema Choudhary). Meera hates men, after their father abandons them.

Arpita though falls in love with a businessman, who becomes the ghar-jamai of their household. Clashes between sister and brother-in-law ensue, only to see Meera falling for the guy. “There’s also the element of split personality in Meera’s character,” offers Mallapalli.

Interestingly, Mallapalli is the director of Mouna Sangrama, that was made seventeen years ago. At that time, the Malayalee director was questioned about making a Kannada film without knowing a word of the language. Soon, Mallapalli, a smart thinker, joined Bimba, learnt Kannada and is now fluent in both the languages.

Hema Choudhary, the Mother Superior last seen in Male Barali Manju Irali still struggles to adjust dates for her different films. Intrigued by the script of Vismaya Pranaya, she has readily given dates. Her only regret is that she cannot do Meera’s role as she is just 20 years too late!

Apart from these three ladies, the film has producer Raj Kishore, an 18-year veteran in the industry, playing the businessman. Raj Kishore, knowing the full-filmi politics, has roped in his friend to direct the film. He has also brought in another friend Prashanth, to play the second hero. Prashanth, who hails from Udupi, is active in theatre.

Music director K Vishwanath, (a veteran of 40 Malayalam films) has sung a few lines of his compositions. In the film, SPB, Rajesh, Chitra, Nanditha and Chaitra have lent their voices. Cinematographer Mathew Rajan will be shooting most of the film in Bangalore.

Advice for young teenagers
10th Class A Sec, one of those ‘school love stories’ is offering a 50 per cent discount on tickets for 10th standard students. This was announced by the film’s producer Prakash at a recent press meet.

His wife and co-producer Radha Prakash offered her take on the film: “Love can wait, but not time. One should pursue studies with single-minded devotion.

Still, if one falls in love, parental guidance should be sought in such matters.” Some ‘food for thought’ to parents and love-sick teenagers out there!

Heroine Priyanka spoke of the difficulties in essaying three types of roles – school girl, college girl and a parent. “It was tough doing those roles. But now, I’m relieved and looking forward to how the audience will receive the film.”

 Indeed, the entire team is waiting to find out if the entire class has passed or flunked. However, an error in evaluation has already occurred: the film’s release has been postponed.

Dedicated to police force
No remakes for me.” This was A M R Ramesh at a press meet of his film Police Quarters, the shooting for which has been completed. “This is a challenging film for cameramen. The process will take several days and the release will be delayed further. But the wait will be worthwhile,” he promised.
all smiles A M R Ramesh, Indumathi Ramesh with Sonu and Anish.
While applauding the crew, Ramesh was also appreciative of his wife and producer, Indumathi for ensuring smooth fund flow. The next round of applause belonged to the Police department. Was it because the families of the policemen grew close to the unit and even fed them well consistently? To avoid any controversies, Ramesh gave the script to the cops before anybody could say a word of misuse of the department.

“Police Quarters is dedicated to the entire police force. I have shot the entire film in their residential quarters with their co-operation. This is a real story with shades of 1968, 1992 and 2009. I have included the Babri Masjid incident in the film,” Ramesh said.

Lead pair Anish and Sonu were beaming, but for different reasons. Anish was happy about the climax while Sonu was elated by the equal treatment (and footage) given to her role. Ramesh though continued singing paeans to the police department. A last word. Ramesh, in all likelihood, may direct a biopic on Vellupillai Pirabakaran or V Prabhakaran, the late LTTE chief for a Tamil producer soon. The film’s focus will be only on the quarter-century ‘armed struggle’, as Ramesh put it.
