When Kannada film industry suffers from remakes and the movies about rowdyism and glamour that are misguiding the society especially youths, director Shivamani has come out with an original movie with a clear cut message to new generation. Shivamani’s movie Josh, which was titled as Jolly Hudugru, is purely a youth oriented movie.
Although Shivamani’s previous movies were very rich in technical aspects, they had failed to rock the Box Office due to the weak script. Knowing the fact, Shivamani cancelled Kulashekhar's story, which was selected earlier and he himself has written the story and screenplay for the movie Josh.
The specialty of the movie is that all the six new artistes Rakesh, Amit, Vishnuprasanna, Akshay, Alok and Jagannath were selected after an elaborate talent hunt that took nearly eight months time and a thorough training was given to them for few months and prepared them for the movie.
