Ace director Suri, one of the successful directors of Kannada films, is back with Kaddi Pudi. For the first time, he has worked with Hattrick Hero Shivaraj Kumar. Like his earlier movies, the latest flick too is an action film. But according to the director, it is different from his earlier films.
In an interview with Oneindia, the director opened up on the film. Here are the excerpts:
Tell us about the film.
Kaddi Pudi does not come under the category of hero-worshipping films. In this film, neither hero bashes 50 members at once nor will it show him as the messiah of masses. It is a screenplay-based film and demands best performance from the actors. I can say that it is an experimental film, which stands different from all my other films.
Considering Shivaraj Kumar's dancing abilities, filmmakers have often used his skills to impress his fans. But there have been no choreographers used for any of the five songs in Kaddi Pudi.
The speciality of the film is that even the caption of the film is unusual. Here, the script has not demanded it. Hence, I decided not to rope in choreographers to shoot the songs. It could have been filmy if we opted someone to direct the songs. I wanted to give it a natural feel and appeal and the three-minute songs would not have done any good to my story.
Firstly, we played the song, observed how actors could move their legs for the track and recorded it on a video camera. Later, we utilised it while shooting the songs. 'Soundarya samara...' is a Kathak themed track. So, we took an expert's help to shoot a few moves. Apart from it, audience will only see natural movements.
So, we can't expect good dance steps in Kaddi Pudi...
There are good dancing steps in the film. But you don't see 15-20 members dancing behind the lead stars in Kaddi Pudi. It is the story of a rowdy and there is no need for us to show him like a dancer. Just because Shivanna is good at dance, we can't use it in his every film. Isn't?
