Actor-cum-director Sudeep's latest Kannada movie Kempe Gowda is one among the much-expected movies that are slated to hit the screens in 2011. Now, the much-hyped film is releasing tomorrow (10th March). It will be screened in 100 theatres including 15 multiplexes across the state.
Another interesting fact about the film is that it is releasing in Santosh Theatre, which was in news after Gun director Harish Raj tried to commit suicide by jumping from its roof to protest against theatre owner's decision to remove his movie and screen Kempe Gowda. Besides this, the movie bosses have also booked Prasan, Uma, Kaveri, Govardhan, Navarang and many other important theatres in Bangalore.
Movie Kempe Gowda is remake of Tamil movie Singam. It revolves around smuggling activities, which are taking place in the city. Sudeep appears as a cop, which was played by Surya in the original. The film is the right mixture of action, sentiments and comedy. Its producers are hoping that this Kannada film be a big hit like the Tamil film.
Kempe Gowda has been directed by Sudeep and produced by Shankare Gowda. Actress Ragini Dwivedi is starring alongside Sudeep in the film. Industrialist Ashok Kheny is appearing in an important role and Anchal Sabarwal and Ravishankar P are in other star cast. The specialty of the film is that Crazy Star Ravichandran has directed and shot a song sequence for it.
However, Sudeep has now made a big name in both South and Bollywood, but his movies are not crossing the mark that he had set at the beginning of his career. So he has planned to make it big with Kempe Gowda. He has really done lot of hard work for it. Now, he is pinning lots of hopes on the film.
