The Kannada film industry has lately been buzzing with innovation, with new directors sculpting captivating content-driven stories. A shining example from this week is “Kadda Chitra,” intriguingly tagged as a ‘stolen image’. Having premiered on September 8th, the film has already amassed significant attention with its unique title and captivating story.
Directed by the passionate Suhas, with Vijay Raghavendra in the lead, “Kadda Chitra” dives into a ‘borrowed’ narrative. This storyline vividly portrays a writer’s life, beautifully intertwined with a gripping crime element. The positive reactions post-premiere and the warm reception of the film’s songs and trailer have left the crew and cast on cloud nine.
Vijay Raghavendra, the film’s heart, shared insights about his character. Although initially hesitant, the director’s evident passion and commitment to the film won him over. Raghavendra, in this film, oscillates between calm introspection and raw, fiery anger. Highlighting the depth of his character, Raghavendra mentioned venturing out of his usual domain, evidenced by his on-screen smoking. Additionally, Spandana, his wife, has shown unwavering faith in the film’s potential.
Helmed by K. Sandeep H under the banners of ‘Shanvi Talkies’ and ‘Dwaraka Productions,’ “Kadda Chitra” also spotlights talents like Namrata Surendranath, Baby Aaradhya, Raghu Shivamogga, among others. The musical beats are the brainchild of Krishnaraj, Gautham Manu ensures enchanting visuals, and Sri Crazyminds ties it all together with crisp editing.
