'Ingale Marga' to be made in five languages

 Aimed at promoting liberation among the deprived sections, particularly the Dalits, ‘Ingale Marga,’ an award winning Kannada movie is in the process of being dubbed into five languages, says specially-abled Belagavi-based activist Ghanashyam T Bhandage, the producer of this periodic film.

“I am not looking for profit, but this movie should reach more people with a strong message of liberation of backward communities and trigger a change of mindset,” Bhandage told the packed audience.

 He was speaking during the screening of the film, which was organised by the Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy under its 'Belli Cinema – Belli Mathu' programme here at the Chamundeshwari Studio on Millers Road in the City.

The movie portrays Devaraya Ingale, a Dalit teacher, being inspired by the ideals of Dr B R Ambedkar, as a trendsetter. In one of the scenes, he calls upon other Dalits to change their surnames, doing away with upper caste surnames.

As the story unfolds, the educated Dalit makes use of drama as a tool to educate the Dalit community to improve their lifestyle and get rid of social evils. The revolutionary song ‘Kattutheva Navu Kattutheva’ is  also featured in the film.

Based on ‘Devaraya Ingale’

Based on a novel, ‘Devaraya Ingale’ written by Dr Sarjoo  Katkar, the movie revolves around the life of the Dalit community of Chikkodi. It was first released in over 66 theatres across the State in 2014. Even as it is running successfully in Bagalkot at present, the producer is planning to take the film to places where there are no theatres.
“We will screen the movie in schools and also hold screenings across the State,” Bhandage told Deccan Herald.
