The corporate world in making its own space in the Kannada film production space is not a big news now. There has been many examples of films being backed by corporate groups. One more such venture was launched in Bangalore. The film Accident is now being produced by a group of Corporate executive chiefs and directed by Ramesh Arvind. The film is touted to be a seat edge thriller. The film is made under the banner of Vishishta productions with Raghunath being the chief of the production group.
Ramesh started off the shooting immediately on the day of launch and shot a sequence featuring a few artists including himself facing the camera. The surprise element is that director Dinesh Babu is playing one of the important roles in the film as a police inspector. Other artistes include Tilak, Mohan, Radio Jockey Balaji Manohar, writer Rajendra Karanth, well known model Rohan and Pati Iyer who, has worked in English theatre. Ramesh is also introducing a new music director Nicky in this film. And veteran cinematographer Bhaskar will be wielding the camera for this film. Rajendra Karanth has written the dialogues for the film for which Deepak and Harsha now working in the corporate world have assisted Ramesh in the story development.
“I have selected the star cast base on the requirement of the roles. I have scouted them from the theatre and the modeling world. The film will be a different type of experience for me as much for the artistes and technicians working in this film. I want to entertain people with a slice of comedy and thrills. The narration will have a split second pace and background score will be a major factor of the film" said Ramesh. He also showed a one minute video capsule of the film to the media men to demonstrate the way the film"s narration has been planned.
Rekha and Pooja Gandhi are the two heroines of this film. “Both these heroines have equal opportunities in their roles. Rekha plays the role of a strong woman who fights any sort of injustice" said Ramesh Arvind.
