Sandalwood is buzzing with the thrilling news that has every cinephile’s heart skip a beat – Premaloka, the classic that etched V Ravichandran’s directorial genius into the annals of Kannada cinema 36 years ago, is poised for a sequel. The Crazy Star himself spilled the beans on Premaloka 2 during the Qatar Kannada Samman-2023, igniting a wave of nostalgia and excitement.
Crafting a saga that continues to resonate with melodious memories, Ravichandran has been weaving the sequel’s script for over a year, promising a tale as endearing as the original. The revelation has sent ripples through the industry, with fans eagerly anticipating another timeless love story.
The original Premaloka, which marked Juhi Chawla’s foray into the southern silver screen, was a labor of love by N Veeraswamy, co-produced by Ravichandran under the banner of Sri Eswari Productions. Its melodies, composed by the legendary Hamsalekha, continue to serenade the hearts of many.
With the sequel, Ravichandran aims to bridge generations, roping in his sons, Vikram and Manoranjan, to add fresh vigor to the storied franchise. As Premaloka 2’s script reaches its final notes, Sandalwood stands on the cusp of welcoming another classic that promises to blend the old-world charm with the new age narrative.
