With Kaddi Pudi, a movie directed by Duniya Soori, receiving critical acclaim and positive response from the audiences, it is not the lead star cast comprising Shivarajkumar and Radhika Pandith that has benefited the most. In fact, it is the glamorous Aindrita Ray, who has walked with the honours for her cameo and special song in the movie.
Aindritha plays the role of an innocent girl, who falls into the wrong hands and ends up as a call girl. The movie’s protagonist plays a pivotal role in changing her perception towards life. Her screen presence is less but Aindrita’s performance has received tremendous appreciation, particularly for the montage song, which captures her various moods.
In fact, the track Amalugannige was not formally choreographed. Duniya Soori himself directed the song and it has become the major attraction of the movie. Though Aindrita does not appear in special numbers in Sandalwood, it looks like she cannot say no to Soori, who give her the biggest break through Junglee early in her career.
The song, Hale Paatre, shot on Aindrita is one of the all-time hits of Sandalwood.
In Amalugannige, Aindrita has performed Kathak and the way the song has been shot is impressive. The use of lights and camera work is much better than any other portion of the movie. Soori has acknowledged the role of Aindrita in the movie’s success. But it is to be seen if the actress will accept similar roles going forward.
At present, she is busy shooting for Bajarangi, her first film opposite Shivarajkumar.
