The full video of the second song from For Regn was released today. The film is set to be in theatres on February 23
In 2020, when two love stories – Love Mocktail and Dia – released in theatres in close proximity and the former did much better at the box office, while the latter picked up after its OTT outing, there were a bunch of memes about a possible future casting. Milana Nagaraj’s whose character Nidhi passes away in Love Mocktail and Pruthvi Ambaar’s Aadi from Dia, who has a similar fate, spawned memes about how it’d be if they met in heaven.
Perhaps inspired by this, the makers of the Kannada film For Regn, director Naveen Dwarakanath and producer Naveen Rao, got the two together for a romantic drama that they’ve been quite tight-lipped about.
Ahead of the February 23 release of the film, the team dropped the second single, a song called Kaddu Kaddu, choreographed by Imran Sardhariya, who used the fact that Milana used to be a national-level swimmer to great effect. Almost half of the song has been picturized underwater, which Milana, of course, has aced, while Pruthvi also made sure he looked super comfy and romantic.
For Regn, is generally a term associated with the sale and purchase of vehicles or other immovable property (land, house, etc.), but according to the team, in the film it is about how the relationship between two people, Ashu (Pruthvi) and Anvi (Milana), gets registered. That’s about all that the team has let slip so far, but going by the making video they’ve released, there’s not just a lot of lovey-dovey stuff between the protagonists, but a fair share of conflict too.
For Pruthvi, For Regn will be his third release for the month. He’s got Juni on February 9, also a love story, albeit one with a twist as it touches upon the subject of dissociative identity disorder, and Matsyagandha, his first as a rough-and-tough cop in a tale about the fisherfolk of Uttara Kannada.
Matsyagandha, incidentally, will release on the same day as For Regn on February 23, a situation that Pruthvi is not too gung-ho about and desperately trying to rectify, but as of now, both films are still firmly holding on to the same date.
