The month of November is a jam-packed one for Kannada cinema with more than 15 film scheduled to release in theatres.
The month of November just keeps giving as three new releases get added to the roster. Joining the party are the Kushee Ravi-starrer horror drama Spooky College, Pawan Wadeyar's musical romance Raymo, and Golden Star Ganesh's on-screen return film Trible Riding: all three films are now scheduled to release on November 25, 2022.
This takes the November 25 tally of releases to five with the multistarrer Dharani Mandala Madhyadolage and crime drama Saddu Vicharane Nadeyuttide already slated to release on the day.
With each of the five films belonging to a different genre altogether, it would be interesting to see how they all fare at the box office. Ganesh, whose most recent release Gaalipata 2 went on to be a major commercial success, would hope to retain his comeback form while Pawan Wadeyar's Raymo of a young and vibrant star cast in the form of Ishan and Ashoka Ranganath. Raymo's, being a one-of-a-kind musical love story promises a chartbuster soundtrack which has been composed by Arjun Janya.
On the other hand, the November 25 weekend offers not but three thrillers of a varied kind. Kushee Ravi of Dia fame dabbles with the horror genre for the very first time in her career with Spooky College which also stars Vivek Simha. Debutant Bharath G directs the film but the highlight of the film is that it comes from the same team that has previously delivered RangiTaranga and Avane Srimannarayana (H.K. Prakash being the producer).
Dharani Mandala Madhyadolage is a multi-narrative film starring 'Gultoo' Naveen Shankar, Aishani Shetty, Yash Shetty, and many others. The crime thriller has been directed by Sridhar Shikaripura.
Saddu Vicharane Nadeyuttide, starring Achyuth Kumar, Madhu Sudan, and Pavana Gowda, is a police procedural about a missing couple and the related media uproar. Bhaskar R. has written and directed the film.
With the first week of the month already issuing 3-4 new films and 5 important releases slated for November 11, the month is jam-packed and one only hopes that the audiences across the state respond well to this influx. November 18 will see four films releasing in theatres, including Prajwal Devaraj's Abbara, which brings the combined November count to 18 films. One has already seen a bottleneck issue harm the Kannada Film Industry in more ways than one so it would be vital that at least a few of the upcoming releases manage to attract crowds to cinema halls.
