Producer E Krishnappa's first Kannada movie Mungaru Male (Matte Mungaaru) was a super-duper hit at the Box Office. His second venture Moggina Manasu was also successful at the Box Office besides winning five National awards. Now, his third movie Matte Mungaru is out and it is also a wonderful movie ever made in the history of Indian Cinema and it comes as an Independence Day treat. The script is the hero of the movie and with its excellent production values, the movie rocks the audience.
Although Matte Mungaru is postered as a sensitive love story, it has very less to talk about the lovers. The highlights of the movie are Srinagar Kitty's performance, Dwarki Raghava's script and dialogues, X Paul Raj's music, excellent cinematography. Another plus point of the film that it holds the attention of viewers without having any commercial ingredients.
Matte Mungaru is based on a real life love story of Narayan Mandagadde of Thirthahalli, Shimoga district. The story goes back to 1983 when Narayan meets with a boat accident in Arabian sea and reaches the Pakistan sea limits. He is caught by the Pakistan army and kept in Black hole jail in Karachi for 21 years. The kind of ill treatments he undergoes in the Pakistan jail will form the story.
