The Suni directorial is slated for a November 26 release in theatres.
Golden Star Ganesh’s second collaboration with filmmaker Suni, after their earlier Chamak, is all set to release on November 26. There is a lot of expectation riding on this combination, given that Chamak had been a laugh riot and the teaser of Sakath too indicates that the film is high on comedy value.
Suni and Ganesh had earlier spoken about the film being the tale of a visually-challenged musician, who becomes a participant on a music reality show. In the run-up to the release, Suni and team had first released the video song, Premakke Kannila, featuring the lead pair, Ganesh and Nishvika, which, however, gave the impression that Ganesh, as Balu, was only pretending to be visually-challenged. This was only further affirmed in the teaser about his character that was released shortly after, wherein Balu is seen watching films with characters that had issues with vision for reference, among others. While that’s been cleared, it remains to be seen just why he pulls this charade.
While audiences count down to the release of the film, over the weekend, the team released the video of the title track, which not only has Ganesh busting a few signature moves, but is quite different for him, given that rapper S.I.D is credited along with Suni for the lyrics and has contributed vocals too. Composed by Judah Sandhy, the title track of Sakath features the voices of S.I.D Rapper, Judah Sandhy and Pancham Jeeva and has been choreographed by B Dhananjaya.
Sakath is the first collaboration for Ganesh and Nishvika, who also then worked together in Gaalipata 2. The actress also plays a visually-challenged character in the film, which will bring Surbhi Puranik to Kannada cinema. Santhosh Rai Pathaje fills in as cinematographer for this tale, which hits theatres on November 26. The film was earlier slated for a November 12 release, but was pushed ahead, as Ganesh was still recovering from the loss of his friend, Puneeth Rajkumar, who passed away on October 29.
