The film pairs Krishna with Bhavana, while Rishab Shetty, Dattanna, Chandan Kumar and Achyuth Kumar play pivotal roles.
Filmmaker Nagshekar’s latest work in Kannada is email@example.com, which pairs Sandalwood’s current flavour of the season, Darling Krishna, with Bhavana for the first time. The film is slated for a festive release in Kannada and Malayalam during Dasara on October 15, in the run-up to which, Nagshekar released the trailer of the film.
Calling the film a bouquet of emotions, the trailer introduces audiences to Darling Krishna as a waiter in a five-star hotel, along with his flamboyant colleague and friend Dattanna, actor-filmmaker Rishab Shetty as a shrewd police officer, Bhavana as an accomplished lawyer. There are also shots of Sadhu Kokila, Achyuth Kumar and Chandan Kumar, with a promise that an adventure is set to unfurl on screen. There are also glimpses of action and tear-jerking moments in what is set to be an intense story. firstname.lastname@example.org has music by composer Arjun Janya, with one song, Kudi Notada, already making waves on the charts. In fact, the song, sung by Sanjith Hegde plays hauntingly at pivotal moments in the trailer.
Since the film was announced, Nagshekar has revealed very few details about the film, hinting that it revolves around the relationship dynamic of the lead couple. But going by the trailer, it is not sure which couple he has referred to, given that it does not establish Krishna and Bhavana as the pair. While she is shown to have a little child, the shot of her running to her dad does not have a reveal, so we will have to wait for the film to open in movie halls to figure out what’s really going on.
email@example.com’s theatrical release coincides with that of two other much-awaited Kannada films, Kotigobba 3 and Salaga, now that movie halls in Karnataka are operational at full capacity again.
Meanwhile, while this is Nagshekar’s first directorial with Krishna, the duo has another cinema connect. Nagshekar has also helmed the Telugu remake of Krishna’s debut directorial Love Mocktail, called Gurthunda Seethakalam, with Satyadev, Tamannaah and Kavya Shetty in lead roles and Megha Akash in a cameo.
