PARIS — With the Cannes Film Festival announcing its lineup on Thursday, there are only a few days left for forecasters, pundits and early-bird Oscar bloggers to speculate on what could appear in the coveted Official Selection. While legendary fest president Gilles Jacob will finally be stepping down after 36 years on the Croisette, general delegate Thierry Fremaux will continue programming the world’s premium art house event, which runs in its 67th edition from May 14 to May 25. And although there’s no telling what movie will turn out to be this year’s The Artist or Blue is the Warmest Color, there are by now a few clues about who will be vying for the Golden Palm.

Ulidavaru Kandanthe and story of blind men and an elephant

In KANNADA on April 9, 2014 at 4:26 am


Ulidavaru kandanthe will not make you confuse but it inspire you to think about the story in different dimensions.

The beauty of the film is how viewer point of views will change differently based on individual capacity on the incident (here in the film) and every time you watch the film the story, prospective, logic and possibilities go’s on changing each time .

When you watch Ulidavaru Kandanthe first time it is visual treat for the eyes, splendid musical journey to the ears, artistic presentation for heart and confused one lined story for the mind.

But you enter the theater second time to watch it make it sure it is whole new world from other planet come to your feet and tempting you to enter into that planet and live there forever. Ulidavar u Kandanthe keep amused you through out for its presentation

Rakshit shetty has woven the screen play in such a detailed way that each and every scene give the opportunity to think and you keep on thinking whether I am analyzing the scenes through my prospective or through the prospective of the characters.

It is not only the story telling technique which uses view point of different people about one incident but it is also story of blind men and an elephant

In various versions of the tale, a group of blind men (or men in the dark) touch an elephant to learn what it is like. Each one feels a different part, but only one part, such as the side or the tusk. They then compare notes and learn that they are in complete disagreement.

The stories differ primarily in how the elephant’s body parts are described, how violent the conflict becomes and how (or if) the conflict among the men and their perspectives is resolved.

In some versions, they stop talking, start listening and collaborate to “see” the full elephant. When a sighted man walks by and sees the entire elephant all at once, they also learn they are blind. While one’s subjective experience is true, it may not be the totality of truth. If the sighted man was deaf, he would not hear the elephant bellow.

Then one intelligent person tell to blind men that “All of you are right. The reason every one of you is telling it differently is because each one of you touched the different part of the elephant. So, actually the elephant has all the features you mentioned.”

Ulidavaru Kandanthe (2014) Movie Review: Simple Authentic Affair

In KANNADA on April 4, 2014 at 9:59 am

Language : Kannada | Runtime : 155 Minutes | Director : Rakshit Shetty

What is truth but a perspective that’s spoken more clearly than another? When the journalist Regina( Sheetal ) tells that she intends to write a series about an incident considering all perspectives, we realise that Rakshit Shetty ‘s debut feature as director, “Ulidavuru Kandanthe” , is going to tackle Rashomon effect , Ever since Akira Kurosawa gave the world the stellar masterpiece, Rashomon , there has been numerous attempts to reuse the effect and tell a story. Rakshit Shetty joins that crowd of filmmakers with his Ulidavaru Kandanthe and unlike most, he actually manages to deliver a good instance of the Rashomon effect.

Richi alias Antonio Montana alias Vijay Deenanath Chauhan

In KANNADA on April 4, 2014 at 7:37 am


Rakshit Shetty’s “Richi” A peculiar character in Ulidavaru Kandanthe , is extremely colorful, with a “flawed personality that stands out and highly charming. Richi is Violent from childhood; he grows up to be an insecure, ruthless adult with a penchant for film dialogues and style. He desperately wants to project his image at every instant.

He tells incredible stories such as Cuban Kid and Mumbai kid and talks about the confusion in the mind of a person who was attacked without a cause, or for some reason which he does not understand

He wears garlands and gun belts. His violence is unleashed with such childlike glee, we easily forget the cruelty. When he so savagely beats up a guy’s face without much of a provocation,

He has his own story where he combines Scarface’s Antonio Montana and Agneepath’s Vijay Deenanath Chauhan he goes about carrying orders of Shankar Poojary, an influential local businessman who wants the idol. He kills his childhood friend just because he deserted him as a kid when he committed the murder.
