Through Kabzaa, R. Chandru has dared to attempt the undoable and cast not one but three reigning superstars of the Kannada Film Industry. Although the length or duration of each superstar, in terms of screentime, varies, the casting coup comes at a time when multistarrers are a vanishing breed in Kannada cinema. And even when these events do occur in their own sporadic manner, one has got to see a combination of two superstars at once (The Villain, Mukunda Murari, Mufti, Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana etc. being a few examples) and the idea of bringing three of them together has somehow grown to become elusive over the last few years.
Kabzaa, which is all set to release worldwide on March 17th, stars Real Star Upendra in the lead role with Kiccha Sudeep playing the key role of Bhargava Bakshi. Shiva Rajkumar, the Century Star, will be seen making a special cameo appearance and his role in the film, so far, has been kept under wraps.
But will R. Chandru deliver fully on the promise of this triple treat? In other words, do we get to see Upendra, Shiva Rajkumar and Kiccha Sudeep in one single frame or participating in a single scene? In his recent conversation with a media outlet, Shiva Rajkumar spoke of the rare opportunity of being part of a film along with two of his closest associates. "When Chandru approached me for a cameo, I found it very interesting. Sudeep, Upendra and I are coming together but you will have to watch the film to see what unfolds," he said in his carefully worded answer.
Will this coming together be as epic as fans are hoping it to be? Well, luckily, we do know that the answer would be revealed in due time as we near the release date of Kabzaa.
We at OTTplay also observed that Shiva Rajkumar's character in the film could be a challenger to the supposed throne that the character played by Upendra seeks. And with Kabzaa most certainly divided into two parts, there is a great chance that Shivanna will have a bigger role in the second instalment. More updates to follow.
