People drop dead, things go out of control and the southpaw, the central character played by Diganth Manchale, is in the thick of it all in 'Edagaiye Apaghatakke Karana'.
That being left-handed brings about bad luck is a common superstition among several cultures worldwide, and the same is the subject of Diganth Manchale's next film.
Titled 'Edagaiye Apaghatakke Karana' (which translates to "left hand is the root of misfortune/accidents") the new film comes as a black comedy-mystery that traces the many escapades of one such "left-hander". People drop dead, things go out of control and the southpaw, the central character played by Diganth, is in the thick of it all. What does his left-handedness have to do with it? Well, the answer lies in the full-length film which is set to release in early 2024.
Here's the teaser of the film:
Diganth Manchale is joined by Dhanu Harsha, Nidhi Subbaiah, Radhika Narayan, Krishna Hebbale, Sourav Lokesh and others as part of the cast. The maiden teaser, which was launched earlier today by Kiccha Sudeep, also suggests that each of the characters has shades of grey to boast about, which makes things all the more intriguing.
Samarth Kadkol, the debutant, writes and directs the film and has also co-produced it along with Gurudatha Ganiga. Abhimanyu Sadanandan ('Aachar & Co', 'Thimayya & Thimayya', 'Mundina Nildana') serves as the film's cinematographer with Praveen Shivanna and Praddyottan handling editing and music, respectively. Pragathi Rishab Shetty is the film's costume designer.
'Edagaiye Apaghathakke Karana' is set to release in February 2024, potentially becoming the second release of the year for Diganth Manchale. The actor has Abhijit Mahesh and Paramvah Studios' 'Bachelor Party' up for release on January 26 and that film, too, includes an enterprising central idea, an eclectic cast and more to pull audiences to theatres.
