Kallarali Hoovaagi produced by Madhu Bangarappa and directed by award winning director T.S.Nagabharana is an outstanding effort by a team of dedicated, talented and committed artists and technicians to make a land mark film.
This film has set its own standard as a competent film which will be thoroughly discussed for many days to come. The film shows evidence of a deep commitment to the cause of good cinema, an intense hard work and superb craftsmanship of highly talented technicians like Hamsalekha and Cameraman Venu. Totally you will feel proud of the quality of the people associated with this film.
Kallarali Hoovaagi is based on a historical fiction story written by B.L. Venu who has also provided the dialogues for the film. With this raw material on his hand, director Nagabharana has created a wonderful and blemishes free script with good commercial ingredients which do not go beyond the logic and authenticity of the story.
Lyric writer and music composer Hamsalekha has added some more strength to the film with his innovative and folklore based writing and compositions which are of a very high standard.
Then the innovative camera angles and source lighting crisp shots of Venu has added some colour to the whole film. The authentic ambience of the film is due to the efforts of designing and art work done by Ms. Nagini Bharana and her team.
Overall Nagabharana's handling of a very sensitive and live wire subject that has to be commended as he has concentrated on the love element without giving undue prominence to other factors. And the element of loyalty and patriotic fervor that is in the film is also inspiring.
Kallarali Hoovaagi is a well performed film. Vijaya Raghavendra once again proves that he is the best of the lot among our younger actors. He will certainly prove that he will be an actor and not a star. Umashankari has delivered an outstanding performance in her last film. It is sad to hear that this talented actress has announced her retirement from films. It is better to say that even veteran actors like Ambareesh, Anant Nag, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, Devaraj have just played their characters without any pressures of their screen image.
The caption of Kallarali Hoovaagi says that it is a visual poetry of the native folk talents. It is certainly not an empty boast. Madhu Bangarappa, Nagabharana and Hamsalekha have to be thanked profusely for this real classic.
