The intent of the makers is noble, but the way they have tried to pay a tribute to the writer seems a little outdated.

Shivanna is the ideal citizen, who resides in the birthplace of poet-writer Dr Doddarange Gowda. He considers the writer his idol and also sings all his famous songs at concerts. His dream is to bring his idol to their village and celebrate his greatness.

This film by MR Kapil lies in the murky zone between fiction and an adulatory docu-drama. It tries to tell a tale using the writings and preachings of Dr Doddarange Gowda as the foundation. But the story doesn't come across as a total work of fiction, with the cameo by the writer, as it was intended. Instead, it ends up being an in-your-face preachy story with rather poor production values. One would rather have had a biopic of the writer or a slick film that paid tribute to his work, but without placing him on a higher pedestal.

The intent of the makers is noble, but the way they have tried to pay a tribute to the writer seems a little outdated. One gets to see contemporary cinema that also make allusions to pop and cultural icons, so Halli Sogadu too could have had a better treatment. Though, one could watch the film if one wants to see the writer in a cameo and some of his best songs re-created.

I cant forget the great films produced in Kannada like Belli moda, Shara Panjara, Kasthuri Nivasa, Nagarahavu, Hamsa Geethe, Samskara, Bhoothayyana Maga Ayyu etc. There are great novels and stories in Kannada literature .Yet the producers and directors keep faith in masala films
what kinds of movie is it?
