Pruthvi Ambaar has a number of exciting projects in his kitty and one among them is the period film Dooradarshana. The actor plays a 'simple village lad' in the film which is centred on the impact of a television set on a small village. Set in the 1980s, the retro drama is written and directed by Sukesh Shetty who has previously directed a number of short films and worked on the Kannada feature film Trunk. Pruthvi Ambaar took social media very recently to announce that he has completed dubbing for Dooradarshana.
The 'Dia' actor shared a small video glimpse of the dubbing process which included all the various artists of the film. The comedy-drama also stars Ayaana, Ugramm Manju, Veena Sundar, Huli Karthik, Harini Srikanth, Deepak Rai Panaje, and many others who will be seen donning interesting retro avatars in the slice-of-life drama. Rajesh Bhat produces the film under his VS Enterprises banner with Vasuki Vaibhav scoring the music, Arun Suresh handling cinematography, and Pradeep Rao coming in as the editor.
Speaking about the film and his role in Dooradarshana in a recent press meet, Pruthvi Ambaar shares: "I was able to connect to the film mainly because of the setting. The film is set in the 1980s and I was born in the year 1988 which means that I have seen both the pre and post-technology phases. Alongside, I grew up in a small town or village which serves as the backdrop of our film and I have personally witnessed the impact that television has on this demographic. Be it the fact that one had to go to a neighbour's house to watch a show, that people would go in large groups to watch a show at someone's house, or that my own household got a colour TV first which became such a rage - I was able to connect so deeply with all these elements. And I must thank Ugramm Manju sir for being a strong pillar of support to get this film on floors because it isn't easy to recreate a period setting with a small budget".
For Ayaana, who was previously seen in Girish Kasaravalli's Illiralaare Alli Hogalaare, Dooradarshana comes as her maiden commercial outing so to speak. "I play the role of Mythri in the film who is paired opposite Pruthvi's Manu. Mythri might be a girl from a small village but she is educated, has been trained in tailoring, and the narrative involves a love track between her and Manu, along with her experiences with the hysteria around the television set," said Ayaana at the recent press meet.
