Two movies are scheduled for release this week – Victory (featuring comedy star-turned-hero Sharan) and Nanda Gokula (featuring struggling stars Rakesh & Tejaswini).
The movie is directed by Nandakishore and produced by Anand Audio, a music label, which is returning to film production after a long gap. The movie has set very high expectations, as Sharan’s debut movie as a full-time hero, Rambo, released last year, was a hit.
Asmita Sood is the female lead of the movie while the support star cast includes Tabala Nani, Ramesh Bhat, Sadhu Kokila, and Avinash. Jayanth Kaikini and Kaviraj have penned the lyrics for the songs. Two of the songs were shot in Bangkok by choreographer Imran Sardhariya.
Arjun Janya has composed the music for all the five songs in the movie. One particular track Khaali Quarter has reached the top 5 of the chartbusters for the month.
Meanwhile, Rakesh and Tejaswini will test their luck through Nanda Gokula, which is produced and directed by M N Simha Joshi under the banner of B N Joshi Cine Creations. He has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues. Mahabalesh is the cinematographer of the movie while Madan Mohan has composed the songs. Rajiv Deva has choreographed the songs.
The star cast of the movie includes Manjesh, Bank Janardhan, Ramesh Bhat, Padma Vasanthi and Lakshmi Devamma. The movie is said to be based on family sentiments. Both Rakesh and Tejaswini are struggling for a foothold in Sandalwood and it is to be seen if the movie works in their favour.
