Devanahalli is another movie to be added in the list of scandalous movies in Kannada. The movie has a ridiculous song, which mocks at former Prime Minister HD Devegowda, his son and former Chief Minister of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy and actress Radhika. However, movie Devanahalli deals with an issue of occupying land near the Bangalore International Airport.
Surprisingly, the movie Devanhalli has been presented by Reddy Brothers - G Karunakarreddy, Somashekharreddy and Janardhan Reddy, with Health Minister Shriramulu. The movie, which ridicules HD Devegowda, HD Kumaraswamy and Radhika, has become the latest movie to face controversy.
The controversial song is 'Londonnalli Magu Ayatu Maha Mantrige, Nammavva Radhavvage.... As song continues it also includes 'Karnatakadalli Devegowdru Huttabardittu..." The movie is criticism on the alleged relationship between HDK and Radhika and Devegowda's statement - "I should not have born in Karnataka."
The song has been penned by Dasayya in folk style and Jenny a.k.a Janardhan has sung it. The movie is produced by Pallakki Radhakrishna and Ravindra Reddy. Pallakki Radhakrishna has written the story and directed the movie Devanahalli. The movie is all about the formers, who are forced to sell their land for Bangalore International Airport for Rs. 4-5 lakh per acre and about the corruption. The movie revolves around the politicians, who are involved in the land issue.
However, Ravi Belagere's movie Mukyamantri I Love You is facing a legal battle at the court for bringing Devegowda family on screen. Another movie Kambalahalli, which revolves around the triangular story of Ramakrishna Hegde, Devegowda and SR Bommai, is also battling in the court.
