Three movies featuring lesser known stars will release this week across Karnataka. Ane Pataki and Pagade are scheduled to release this Friday alongside with the third movie Kumbha Rashi. The three movies are being released just a week after super star Darshan’s movie Bul Bul opened to a tremendous response.
Ane Pataki is supposed to be a full length comedy movie featuring Srujan Lokesh, Parvathy Nirbhag, Sadhu Kokila, Rangayana Raghu, Bullet Prakash, Tabala Nani, and Bhaskar. Chandrashekar Bandiiyappa, who has written the story and screenplay, has also directed the movie while Rajendra Karanth has penned the dialogues. The movie is produced by the banner Ananya & Aishwarya Productions while Dharmavish has composed the music.
The second movie to release this week is Pagade, which is directed by B A Purushottam. The movie has Vishwas Bharadwaj (popular on the small screen) and model-turned-actress Gamya as the lead pair. The star cast includes Tennis Krishna, Achyuth Kumar, Dharma, Honnavalli Krishna and Srinivasa Prabhu. The movie is produced by H V Annappa while Sagar Nagabhushan has composed the music.
The third release of the week is Kumbha Rashi featuring Chetan Chandra and Roopika in the lead roles.
This is for the first time in two months, that three movies, all small budget movies, are being released simultaneously. Darshan’s movie is already running to packed houses and all the three movies face the threat of eviction in case the audiences give a negative review.
