What is the definition of beauty? Which is important to life? Is it internal beauty or the external beauty?
These are the questions that would come up when Soundarya directed by Channagangappa would be released, says Music director Hamsalekha who was all in praise of the director for making a superb film with all the necessary ingredients without compromising on the artistic values of the film.
"Why I am referring this matter is to underline that the Heroine of the film may look good and may be beautifully, but she did show her ugly face and her internal 'beauty' during the shooting of this film' Hamsalekha jokingly said in a press conference organised after the completion of the shooting of Soundarya. Ramachandra, one of the producers of the film, Actor Ramesh Arvind, Child Artist Shreya and Director Channagangappa were present at the press conference.
Channagangappa said that he had obtained lot of support from Music and lyric writer Hamsalekha during the making of the film. "My association with him started when both of us worked on a subject titled as "Agochara'. The film should have started earlier, but we did get perfect locations, the weather conditions were not conducive to make this film in the interiors of Malnad area. Then suddenly this idea of making this film came to me. I was working in the Home department in 1997-98 when I use to get files which told some horror stories which were really threatening. I was able to see many tragic incidents which related stories of how some unconnected elements would spoil a happy family life. I scripted a family story which did have some thrilling elements with the background of crime. The story shaped up well and when I got a positive response when I discussed the story with Hamsalekha and Ramesh. I started shooting of the film on May 3 and now the film is almost finished with only a day's patch work pending. Baby Shreya is participating in the remaining shooting. I have shot the film for 42 days' said Channagangappa. He also said that the story board concept has been used for the first time in the Kannada film industry through this film.
Ramachandra and Hamsalekha appreciated the efforts of Channagangappa in making the film which is certain to please all sections of the audience. Ramachandra said that the song "Hrudaya Haadu Kelu' is bound to become a chart buster.
"Channagangappa has lots of commitment. Hamsalekha sir has recorded five fantastic songs of the film. He has taken nearly 21 days for the re-recording work, but none of us are complaining, because it is exceptional.
The sound design of this film will be something special, and Mr. Bharani, an expert in the sound department is involved in this work. Channagangappa has taken maximum interest in creating a different type of film. I am fully satisfied with the work I have done in this film. I am sure every other artist and technician will say the same thing' says Ramesh Arvind.
