'The Censors have appreciated it, the lab reports are astounding and the issues that we have taken in the film is contemporary and serious. I am sure that my film will create history' says producer K. Manju about his new film Maathaad Maathaad Mallige which has recently been censored. The film's audio has been released in the market to a fantastic response, says Manju.
Dr. Vishnuvardhan-Suhasini starrer Mathad Mathad Mallige directed by Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar is to be released on August 24. Producer K. Manju has organised a press meet on friendship day which fell on 6th August at the G.M.Rejoice. The five songs of the film were shown to media men and also some guests who were specially invited to the function. The artists and singers who have lent their voice for the film were called and felicitated. Noted environmentalist Devendra Sharma who has provided many statistical details for the film was also present.
Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar had presented a ten minute introductory capsule CD of the film in the Cannes International Film Festival which had become a highly discussed point in the industry. This capsule was played for the media persons and guest during the press meet.
Devendra Sharma who was impressed with the presentation of the CD said that Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar has raised the issues for which people like him and other well known environmentalists are fighting for. 'In the name of development and globalisation, lacs of people are being displaced from their own lands worldwide and have not been given due compensation. I think a film like Maathaad Maathaad Mallige will raise the awareness regarding the dangers of excessive development and priority to globalisation and economic reforms. We are ignoring the interests of common people and poor peasants' said Devendra Sharma.
Sharma paid special compliments to Dr. Vishnuvardhan who had the courage to accept a different role of a rebel fighting for the cause of farmers.
