'I don't want to win any battle by fluke. I have strong belief in myself and my work. I know I have worked hard for this film Savi Savi Nenapu which is my second attempt in film direction. There is certainly a certain fragrance and feel in this film. This would be a different film in narration as well as in its technical presentation' says Santhosh Rai Paathaaje who is certainly one of the promising young film directors of Kannada cinema.
Paathaaje started his creative career working in advertising world and then moved on to making films. He had earned good name for his craft as a ad photographer. Santosh Rai Paathaaje debut directorial venture was 7 O'clock. Though the film was an average grosser, he was able to present a good script to Babu who was very happy to do the film. 'This is a visually different film with a distinct exposure in lighting, color and framing. I am really happy when I talk of this film' says Paathaaje who has written the script of the film. Santosh says that producer Babu has understood his needs and provided everything to support him. "Babu has a good taste. And he knows that colors and mood of the film is important. I have also taken care to select artists who suit the roles perfectly. I am sure Prem will be known as an actor of great talents after the film's release' says Santhosh.
Santhosh says that he has targeted the teen aged youth as much as the family audience for the film. He explains the story board concept used in the film.
'This is called Frame Force 3-D software for story board brought from US. Since I had the locations in my mind I have been able to work in this new concept with selection of artistes. Before the shoot the color print out of the shot was ready with me. The story board concept has worked out wonderfully' says Santhosh.
