Yogaraj Bhat is blessed with a quality of understanding the pulse of youth. If we look at his films since Mungaaru Male, which made him a star director, most of his films have dealt with modern-day relationship laced with humour. Despite being criticised for weak stories, the filmmaker has managed to attract audience with his own style of films.
What is Drama all about?
Life is a puppet show and we are actors. I am telling this from the modern-day youth's point of view.
How different is Drama from your earlier films?
Be it its content or characterisation, audience will see the difference. And the music has also been different when compared to my earlier flicks. In one word, Drama is a 'strange' film.
Your movies are often criticised for weak stories. Will this perception be changed in Drama?
My stories have always remained weak. I don't know whether I can change the things around this time. Even for Mungaaru Male, I was criticised for the same but people loved it. After all, we make films for public and they should decide whether the film has story or not.
Your movie Drama is clashing with Edegarike. Do you think two big movies releasing simultaneously will eat each other's business?
May be or may not be. I am not sure about it. Pre-talks are good for Yedegarike too and it will be good for the industry if both the films does well.
