Sumanth Shailendra Babu’s comeback in Kannada films after a five-year gap was the remake of the Telugu film Brochevaruvarura, called Govinda Govinda, which released in theatres on November 26. The film was gearing up for release early last year when the pandemic struck and stopped everything in its tracks. Since then, although the team got offers to give the film a direct-to-OTT release, they resisted and brought it to theatres. Interestingly, even though it released along with Sakath, Govinda Govinda opened to good reviews back then.

A month on, the film is now ready for its OTT outing and is coming to SunNXT this week. Govinda Govinda will start streaming on the platform from December 26. The film, which also stars Roopesh Shetty, Kavitha Gowda, Achyuth Kumar, Vijay Chendoor and Bhavana, among others, is a comedy crime thriller, a genre that Sumanth says is an interesting to watch. “Govinda Govinda is based on a story by Ravi Garani, directed by Thilak, who used to work for the small screen earlier. I have always worked with newcomer filmmakers and varying genres and that continues with this film. This is a comedy crime thriller, which focuses on a bunch of young, immature friends, who, like most people in that age group, think that they know best. What happens when they get into a sticky situation and how they try to get out of it forms the crux of the story. Along the way, they also realise that they are not mature or worldly wise to handle certain situations,” Sumanth had told us prior to the film’s theatrical release.

He added, “The narrative begins in Bijapur, with most of the dialogues in the dialect of the region and moves to Bengaluru. The film also explores relationships between parents and children, and how the younger lot often disregards the wisdom passed down to them. In fact, there are two parallel stories in this film – one about an aspiring filmmaker approaching a heroine for dates, and another about a college student, whose passion is dance, but is forbidden by her folks from pursuing it. “
