They are nice, fun-loving and very cooperative.  I like Mangalore a lot and feel at home here."

I stay with my family after the shoot," he said.  He also said, "The shooting will continue in Malpe and then we will go back to Bangalore and decide the next spot for the shooting," he added. wishes 'Sakkare' sweet success and wishes the entire crew a happy stint of shooting in Mangalore.

I watched Shikari and it put me to sleep. The lead actor looked like he was carved out of stone. We hardly get to see good movies these days and i believe the reason for this is, the intellectuals and the powerful have taken over the domain of art which once rightfully belonged to the artist. The recent release Ellellu Neene Nanallu Neene is a disaster. Remember, you can,t fool the ordinary folk with hype anymore for these people haven't learn t their lessons of life in plushy classrooms tutored by pseudo intellectuals. My fear is that we may not get to see another 'Ghatasradda' considered as among top 100 movies of all time, 'America America' which showcased the simplicity of love, 'Duniya' the only Kannada movie in my opinion that deserved an Oscar. Mungaru Male was simply magical and if you want to know what acting is all about watch Kurudavva in Nagamandala. Today's Movers and Shakers don't know what life means, leave alone the meaning of freedom the two fundamental ingredients of cinema.
