Chilling cold weather is always considered as a big threat to the films, but big producers in the Kannada film industry seem to have different perceptions. See the way how they are planning the releases in what can be described as a frightening period for any film industry. Besides the biting cold the heightened interest on cricket which may pave way for a huge viewer ship for the cricket series in Australia may not bode well for film collections. And what can be predicted when too many films are released during such risky periods.
Starting from 14th December when a big budget films like Lava Kusha starring Hatrick Hero Shivaraj Kumar and Upendra are releasing, many number of big and hugely expected films are ready for release. In the coming seven weeks from now there will be a big stake for the Kannada film industry as the fate of around Rs 50 crores spent on the Kannada films which will be released in the next few weeks would be put to test.
Big stars films which are ready are Preethi Eke Bhoomi Melidhe starring Prem, E Bandana starring Dr Vishnuvardhan, Jayapradha, Dharshan, Jennifer, Nanu Neenu Jodi starring Vijayaraghavendra, Gaja starring Dharshan, Gaalipata starring Ganesh, Diganth Manasu by E Krishnappa and many other movies.
Many big stars may well have to lose their sleep in this tough winter competition. And the stakes are very high and will be immediately felt on many top artists and technicians of the industry. For stars like Dr Vishnuvardhan, Darshan, Sudeep and Upendra who are desperately in need of a big hit, the stakes are even larger.
