When it rained.....

When it rained.....

The story Mungaru Male began and ended with the rain. Matthe Mungaaru has nothing to do with Mungaru Male. The two stories aren’t even vaguely related but here the rain is central to the story. It traces the life of a boy who lived and grew up in a Theerthahalli, a tiny village for most of his life. Like any other ambitious young man, he boards a train to the City, in search of a job. He lands up in Mumbai joins the fishermen as a boat mechanic.
   The role of the young man is played by Srinagara Kitty. He regularly goes to the seas. In the midst of all this he falls in love with a girl (played by Rachana Malhotra) who is instrumental is helping him settle down.

   He goes out into the sea and he’s soon caught in a massive boat tragedy. The crew is lost and Srinagara Kitty returns after 21 years, “I have 18 different looks in the movie. I wear a clean shaven look as a young man and when I return after 21 years I have a beard, unkempt hair and I am all dirty. I also have to play out different emotions.  It’s a powerful character. What seemed like impossible in the beginning has turned out to be a real hit,” Srinagara told City Herald.      He returns and desperately searches for his love and his family. Does he find love and will he succeed in tracing his family? That’s the crux of the story.
    Talking more about the film its director Dwarki Raghav observes that the movie is no routine script.

“It begins and ends with rain. For a change, the normal commercial masala hasn’t been included and what you’ll see is a totally new twist to Kannada cinema,” says Dwarki and adds, “we have also roped in a couple of theatre artists in the film.”
   The film will hit the theatres on August 6.
