Puneet Raj Kumar starrer Milana directed by Prakash is all set to be released on September 14th. For Puneet, who has a huge action image which attracts a large number of young audiences, this mature love story will be a different type of film. Parvathi from Kerala, who has worked in three big Malayalam films (Notebook, Out of Syllabus and Vinodyathra), is the heroine. Pooja Gandhi, the leading lady of the block buster Mungaru Male, appears in a very important role.
Though Puneet and director Prakash are wary of giving more information about the film, we learn that Milana has a soft look with melodious music by Mano Murthy hitting the top of the music album sales. Three songs of the film have been shot in Switzerland on Puneet - two songs with Parvathi and one with Pooja Gandhi.
Milana is the first film that Puneet Rajkumar launched after Dr. Rajkumar's death on April 12th, 2006. Major portions of the film have been shot in outdoor spots of Bangalore and a village mansion near Hebbal.
This is the first time that Puneet and talented director Prakash have come together. Prakash has earlier directed films like Kushi, Rishi and Sree. Prakash has also worked with Shivaraj Kumar, elder brother of Puneet Rajkumar in Rishi. Vijaya Raghavendra has acted in all three films directed by Prakash.
Mano Murthy, who has the successes of Mungaru Male and Cheluvina Chiththaara behind him, is the music director. Prakash says that he chose Mano Murthy as music director because he wanted all the songs to be melodious. 'My story needed a different type of music. I know Puneet's fans like trendy and peppy music. But the melodious music has merged very well with the story and I am sure Puneet's fans will definitely like the film,' says Prakash.
Dushyanth of Jai Matha films, who had earlier produced films like Monalisa and Sree, is the producer.
