Supporting stars who have graced the kannada silver screen...

Character artistes have always been a very integral part of movies. Be it the hero/heroine's father, mother, evil uncle or aunt, mentor, teacher etc, many artists have made a deep impact on the cinegoer's mind with their incredible performances. Here are a few such roles and the actor/actress who have immortalised them.

Chamayya meshtru in Nagarahaavu: S Ashwath rendered one of his career best performances in this cult movie. Based on Ta Ra Su’s novel of the same name, this movie is also known for introducing actors Vishnuvardhan and Ambarish. Ramachari is a stubborn young man who has very high regards for his ‘’meshtru’’. Chamayya meshtru has a very deep rooted affection and admiration for ramachari and rues that the world fails to understand this incredibly capable young man. He also exercises great influence on Ramachari and the general belief held is that Ramachari never goes against his teacher. The climax proves this when ramachari along with his love plunges to his death when he accidentally causes the demise of his beloved meshtru.

Balakrishna in Bangarada Manushya (I have a bit of confusion about the character’s name – rajutappanavare??): Balakrishna provided ample support to Rajkumar’s character of Rajeeva in this all time classic. Rajeevappa returns from the city to find his sister's family in chaos following the untimely death of his brother in law. After being deserted by his elder brother, Rajeevappa decides to stay back and pull the family out of despair. Balakrishna will be instrumental in providing the loan for him to start farming on 25acres of barren land. Balakrishna's character was like a foil to Rajkumar's character. Both the characters engaged in witty repertoire loaded with deep rooted philosophy. This role has gone down as one of the most memorable in the annals of kannada cinema.

B R Panthulu in Shri Krishnadevaraya as mahamanthri thimmarasu -
Sri Krishnadevaraya can be rated as one of the all time classics of Rajkumar’s mythological movies. The dignity with which rajkumar carried of krishnadeva raya’s role is spell bounding. However cinegoers would also definitely rank B R Panthulu’s acting as one the pivotal reasons for the movie’s phenomenal success. As mahamantri thimmarasu, panthulu portrayed the minister’s shrewdness, patriotism and unflinching loyalty to the king in the direst of circumstances. Being instrumental in the upbringing of the young prince right till the crowning, thimmarasu was a very prominent figure in krishnadevaraya’s life. Our hearts broke when krishnadevaraya orders his most trusted minister to be blinded, suspecting thimmarasu’s involvement in his son’s death by poisoning.

Leelavathi in Naa ninna mareyalaare - Dr Rajkumar garnered tremendous fan following after this blockbuster movie. The main attraction, it can be said, of this movie was the scintillating exchange of dialogues between rajkumar and leelavathi. Leelavathi, who was one of the yesteryear leading heroines for Rajkumar (eg: Veerakesari) played his nemesis in this movie by being instrumental in separating Lakshmi from Rajkumar. Her haughtiness and arrogance lent an extraordinary credibility to this character and viewers couldn't wait to see more of the two onscreen albeit without being paired opposite one another.

Rajanand in Ranganayaki - Rajanand essayed one of the most poignant roles to have ever come on kannada screen in the movie ranganayaki. Being the owner of a theatre group, the passion which propels you to continue amidst all the struggles and failure and ultimately the realisation that what you see onscreen is temporary was portrayed beautifully by him. One scene which is etched in my memory is when Rajanand considers Ashok's proposal to Aarthi. He shows Ashok behind the stage and tells him that ultimately it is just cardboard and props. He warns Ashok that what seemed so magnificent onstage is nothing but a well played illusion and that behind the scenes is the stark reality.

I have outlined only a few of the innumerable character artists and the roles they have made so popular. A supporting character artists' list is never complete without the quintessential mother of kannada screen - Pandaribaayi :-). In the recent times, Ananth Nag and Vishnuvardhan have successfully transitioned from leading roles to supporting characters. The most memorable of them is Ananth Nag in mungaru maLe, Vishnuvardhan in aapthamitra, sirivantha, Ambarish in Gowdru amongst others.

ಚಲನಚಿತ್ರ: ಮೊಗ್ಗಿನ ಮನಸ್ಸು
ಹಾಡಿದವರು: ಶ್ರೇಯ ಘೋಶಾಲ್
ನಟಿಸಿರುವವರು: ರಾಧಿಕ ಪಂಡಿತ್, ಯಶ್ ಮತ್ತು ಇತರರು

ಮಳೆ ಬರುವ ಹಾಗಿದೆ ಮನವೀಗ ಹಾಡಿದೆ
ಹೃದಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೂತು ನೀನು ನನ್ನ ಕೇಳಬೇಕಿದೆ
ಸವಿಗನಸು ಕಾಡಿದೆ ನಸುನಗುವು ಮೂಡಿದೆ
ಕಾಣದಂತೆ ನಿಂತು ನೀನು ನನ್ನ ನೋಡಬೇಕಿದೆ

ನಿನ್ನ ನಗುವಿನಲ್ಲೇ ನನ್ನ ನಸುಕು
ನಿನ್ನ ರೂಪಧರಿಸಿ ಬಂದು ನಲಿದಾಡಿದೆ ಬೆಳಕು
ಗೆಳೆಯ ನೀನು ಬಳಿಯೇ ಅನುಕ್ಷಣವು ಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ
ದಿನಕೆ ನೂರು ಬಾರಿ ನೀನು ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಹೇಳಬೇಕಿದೆ

ಎದೆಯ ಬಾಗಿಲಲ್ಲೇ ನಿನ್ನ ಸುಳಿವು
ಸಣ್ಣ ಆಸೆಯಲ್ಲೇ ನಮ್ಮ ಸಹವಾಸದ ನಲಿವು
ಇನಿಯ ನಮ್ಮ ಒಲವು ಮೆರವಣಿಗೆ ಹೊರಟಾಗಿದೆ
ಮರೆತ ಹಾಗೆ ಚೂರು ನಟಿಸಿ ನಿನ್ನ ಕಾಡಬೇಕಿದೆ.......

Jayanth Kaikini - the man who gave a new lease of life to kannada music

Jayanth Kaikini's name is synonymous with lyrics which pierce your soul and keep you hooked . The man revolutionised kannada lyrical scene and brought back the glory of the golden 70s (chi. udayshankar's magic). I couldn't help myself from being enthralled with the intricate play of words and his ethereal imagination.

When I heard sonu crooning ''suriyuva soneyu sooside ninnade parimaLa'' to the lilting tunes of Mano murthy sir, I was just swept away. When Ganesh despairingly asks ''haNeyali bareyada ninna hesara hrudayadi naane korediruve, ninagunte idara kalpane?", I could feel his helplessness, the impending inevitable pain of separation. In turn when pooja tells ''baaLa haadiyali bereyaadaru chandira baruvanu namma jothe, kaaNuvenu avanali ninnane'', my heart sighed......

But, nothing can compare to the boltening of sensation when I heard ''minchagi neenu baralu'' from gaaLipata. I thought, 'wow, hats off to his imagination'. I could never have thought of ''naa ninna kanasige, chandadaaranu.....chanda baaki neeDalu bande baruvenu''. Harikrishna's amazing tune has given this song a cult status in my collection. I never fail to be mesmerized by this tune any time I hear it. It feels as though I am listening to it for the very first time. Simply magical. When Ganesh asks, ''ninna manada kavithe saala paDeda naanu saalagaara, kaNNa toredu dochikonDa nenapugaLige paaludaara'', how can people resist the wonderful vivid imagination of the lyricist?

After these movies, I actively started looking out for the lyricist's name and would immediately download songs which were penned by Kaikini. I am glad to say that I was never disappointed with any of the songs I have heard so far. Be it, ''lahari moha lahari'' from Madesha or ''maatinalli heLalaarenu'' from bombaat. After listening to the lines ''nageyallide aa bageyallide, bagehariyada aa avaloka...naDeyallide aa nuDiyallide talekeDisuva aa aamantraNa'' from the latter, woooooosh, I felt MY brain scramble (I am sure guys would identify with this, since the herione is Ramya ;-)).

The amazing picturisation contributed a lot to the overall effect of ''ee sanje yakagide'' from geLeya. However, jayanth's lyrics contributed equally too. But it was the female version which captured and held my attention. Especially the second para, ''kai hidiyutha munnaDeside savinenapina sammohini, mai managaLa aavariside ninnolavina sanjeevini...ee binnaha talupillave? novillade olavillave?''. I could imagine the actress's deep rooted faith which was slowly beginning to erode. Unfortunately the song was not picturised in the movie which probably in a way is good, since I am free to give it my own interpretation :-)

Just when I thought, he couldnt possibly get any better, I heard ''maLe ninthu hoda mele'' from milana. ''Male ninthu hoda mele, haniyondu mooDide''...wow...the poetry is so graphic that I could actually clearly visualise the droplets! apart from the symbolism. Jayanth uses a lot of imagery in his lyrics to give that feel which inturn helps the director to capture the essence of the song effectively on screen (which they are successful in doing so, most of the time atleast). The metaphor in ''edeya dooravaaNiya kareya ringaNa'' is amazing. When I think about rain, another song which immediately pops up is ''maLe baruva haagide'' from moggina manassu. I was speechless after hearing ''ninna naguvinalle nanna nasuku'' ಅಂಡ್ ''iniya namma olavu meravaNige horataagide''. It transported me to a different level altogether.

Jayanth has penned a diverse category of songs. From the simple to the flamboyant. Be it the metaphorically rich ''madhuvana karedare'' from inti ninna preetiya or the simple but soothing ''nanagu ninagu kaNNalle parichaya'' (especially note the play of words in this song). His repertoire is stunning in its range. I will conclude with this soulful tune from haage summane. ''Odi bandenu''....especially the lines ''nenapinda chaapisiruva ee manada sanchike, mukhaputavanu nee noDade mareyaade etake?" brought a tear to my eye. I could totally identify with the heroine's despair, longing and hope all brought to the fore by this moving, metaphorically rich lyrics.

pain of separation

here i am sitting at my office, shell shocked, after hearing that one of my friends is getting separated from her husband....she recently had a little boy and it came as a complete shock....the breaking of any marriage is extremely painful but probably more so if it is a love marriage....

the understanding which propells u to date, and even decide to get married and spend the rest of your lives together either with/without ur parent's consent.....what happened to that? won't u know the differences, won't u think about the potential pitfalls? wouldn't you get into it being aware of the strengths and shortcomings? and if u are aware, then u know that it is a problem which u foresaw and so why wouldnt you work on it?? or if it is irreconcilable then why get married in the first place???

when i was discussing this with my friend, this is what he felt....u need to be far sighted when it comes to a life long commitment..u need to weigh a lot of factors, think far, look at compatibility, the compromises u'd need to make if any, and how far u cud deal with that......a lot of such factors. We just cant be blind in love and get married considering the past......the rosy days u've spent with each other. When it comes to marriage, past doesnt play a role (isn't that ironical??)......gotta be calculative and think abt the future.

how well can you really know a person? each one of us have different barriers and we let a few barriers down for a few people but rarely do we completely reveal ourselves to anyone....so there is no way that u can know 100% of a person......no matter how long you have dated....the maximum we can know is a person's habit and general mode of behaviour and way of thinking (if we are inituitive, that is)...the one reason which probably leads to failed marriages could be a lack of willingness to compromise....maybe that is why arranged marriages have a higher rate of success than love marriages, though looking at it from a logical point of view it should be the other way since we would have gotten an opportunity to know our partners before hand in love marriages. Ironical, that it is the opposite!!

well come what may, life goes on.....and here is an ode to life!!!

ಹುಚ್ಚು ಹುಡುಗ ನೀನು ಬಿಚ್ಚಿ ಹೇಳಲೇನು
ಜೀವಕೆ ರೆಕ್ಕೆ ತಂದವನೆ ಬಾನಿಗೇರಿ ಹಾರುವ ಬಾರ ಒಲವೆ ವಿಸ್ಮಯ.........

ಇರುಳಲ್ಲಿ ನೀನೆಲ್ಲೋ ಮೈ ಮುರಿದರೆ ನನಗಿಲ್ಲಿ ನವಿರಾದ ಹೂ ಕಂಪನ
ಕಣ್ಣಲ್ಲಿ ನೀ ಕಣ್ಣಿಟ್ಟು ಬರಸೆಳೆದರೆ ಮಾತಿಲ್ಲ ಕತೆಯಿಲ್ಲ ಬರಿ ರೋಮಾಂಚನ
ನಿನ್ನ ಕಣ್ಣ ತುಂಬಾ ಇರಲಿ ನನ್ನ ಬಿಂಬ 
ಹೂವಿಗ ಬಣ್ಣ ತಂದವನೆ ಪರಿಮಳದಲ್ಲಿ ಅರಳುವ ಬಾರೊ ಒಲವೆ ವಿಸ್ಮಯ.......

ಒಲವೆ ನೀನೊಲಿದ ಕ್ಷಣದಿಂದಲೆ ಈ ಭೂಮಿ ಈ ಬಾನು ಹೊಸದಾಗಿದೆ
ಖುಷಿಯಿಂದ ಈ ಮನವೆಲ್ಲ ಹೂವಾಗಿರೆ ಬೇರೇನು  ಬೇಕಿಲ್ಲ ನೀನಲ್ಲದೆ
ಕುಣಿದು ಕುಣಿದು ಬಾರೆ  ಒಲಿದು ಒಲಿದು ಬಾರೆ
ಕುಣಿವ ನಿನ್ನ ಮೇಲೆ ಮಳೆಯ ಹನಿಯ ಮಾಲೆ ..............

a rough translation of the above song:

where are u, o lover, who pleads me to love u...
where are u, o lover, who pleads me to love u and only u...
is this your piercing gaze??
or is this love's game??
whatever it is, how and what do i search u as?

u stepped the first time,
inside the city of my heart, and
strolled in my mind's street
now who are u???
for our first meet,
at the time u have told,
where do i come?
you were the one who roamed behind me, for my one glance
now i do want to see u, so please come soon....

even after listening to your call,
how do i keep quiet,
in futility do i search...who are u?
i peek stealthily,
at every passing guy
but in vain do i search...who are u?
why didnt u come even when i was waiting for u...
is there any future for me without u?

this is a very rough translation...the song is way more poetic than i have described :-))

summane summane

i love this song for its breezy nature and of course jayashri's voice :-D

back with a bang??? - aaha entha aa kshaNa!!

helllooooo world!!!!

here i am, once again...but this time after a long hiatus....hmm....i have a weakness, which is probably shared by millions around the world....when there is no specific direction, i drift apart which is what happened with my blog too....i had the enthusiasm in the beginning which gradually faded :-D...but now i am here with a purpose....i am going to encourage people to send me their requests for kannada songs lyrics.....i have a good grasp of the language and hence will be able to give accurate lyrics....if possible with a translation included...when i was browsing thru for the lyrics, i found very few websites dedicated solely to kannada lyrics....well here is my humble attempt.....

and here is the very first song.....one of my favourites from the movie akash starring puneeth rajkumar and the lovely ramya!!!!

Movie: Akash
Singer: Shreya Goshal/Chitra (there are two versions)
Actors: Puneeth, Ramya

aaha entha aa kshaNa, nenedare tallaNa
tannantaane edeyali, preetiya narthana
idu yavaga hegaaithu yaake antha gotte aagalilla
ee preethili enintha maayamanthra ondu tiLiyalilla

kaNgaLa maatige tuTigaLu mounavu
hrudayavu beretare uLidavu gouNavu
nenneyavaregu naa hego idde, naa bere nee bere antidde
nepamaathrake eraDu deha ide, adaroLagiro praaNavu onde
ee praaNane ninagaagi meesaliDuve baaro nanna geLeya
ninna preetige eLeLu janmadallu muDipu nanna hrudaya........

nadigaLu oDive kaDalanu seralu
chaithrava kaadive hoogaLu araLalu
sangeetha saahitya ondaadanthe haalalli beretiruva jenanthe
soojiya hindiruva daaradanthe naa baruve jotheyaagi neraLanthe
ee preetiyu ee namma baaLinalli endu heege irali
ninna preetine nannedeya jyotiyaagi endu beLagutirali.....
