The title of the film might have changed, but the enthusiasm of the unit remains at its peak. This was clearly evident in the audio release function of the film Kempa produced by Anekal Balaraj and directed by Jagadish. Along with the film's director Jagadish there were other technicians and artists of the film who were seen moving here and there organising every thing and even inviting the guests.
It is official, now the film will be titled as Kempa. The movie had earlier carried the title as Golla, but the name change became inevitable after some minor protest voices were heard by the Yadava organisations in the state. And then after a long search for an alternative title, Balaraj decided on this title.
The audio album and cassettes of the film was released jointly by Actress Jayamala, the new President of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, Actor and Producer Dwarakish, Sa.Ra. Govindoo, leading producer and present treasurer of the KFCC. All the three leading lights wished big success for the film. Vijay Kumar, Secretary from the distribution sector of KFCC and Mars Suresh, Vice President KFCC were also present. Four songs of the film were shown to the invitees who included the media men. Lyric writer Kaviraj compared the function quite well.
Dwarakish congratulated Jayamala for assuming office of the President of the KFCC and hoped that her leadership will try to solve many problems facing the Kannada film industry. He also said that two songs of the film had impressed him. One was a solo song rendered by Lakshmi who was also present in the function.
Music director Guru Kiran who was present in the meeting said that there were five songs in the film which were well shot. He said that the film's director Jagadish had shown lot of enthusiasm during the composition work and after doing the re-recording work, he was sure that ample efforts have gone into the making of the film. He wished the film's artists and technicians a big future in the Kannada film industry.
