A little while ago, the trailer of filmmaker Santhosh G’s Shubhamangala was released. The film, which has Siddhaartha Maadhyamika, Meghana Gaonkar and Hitha Chandrashekar in the lead, along with an eclectic ensemble cast including Rakesh Maiya, Deepthi Nagendra, Aditi Ram, Gopalkrishna Deshpande, Bindu Raxidi, Aruna Balraj, Babu Hiranyya, Ila Veeramalla, Sumukha R Bharadwaj, Hari Samashti, Anirudh Acharya, Vijay Chendoor, Ram Manjjonaath,Trupti Kulkarni, Srinivas Prabhu, Vidhya Murthy, Prashanth Natana and Keerthi Venkatesh, has just announced its date with audiences.
Much like the teaser that came out in May, the trailer also explains what the film is all about. In earlier interactions with the media, prior to the screening of Shubhamangala at Biffes, Santhosh had said that his film revolves around the high-drama action that takes place in a span of 12 hours at a wedding venue and explores marriage in Indian society. The film is also a compilation of five short stories about love, lust, children and the elderly, which form the sub-plots of this tale. The trailer captures all these aspects as the characters played by Siddhaartha and Hitha prepare to get married.
Shubhamanagala is the first post-pandemic release for Meghana, who was last seen in Kalidasa Kannada Meshtru, while Hitha had a brief role in Suneel Raoh’s comeback film Thurthu Nirgamana earlier this year. Named after a 1975 Puttana Kanagal classic, Shubhamangala, which has music by Judah Sandhy, will be in theatres on October 14. At the moment, it is only the second Kannada film to have announced October 14 as its release date, beside Sachin Dhanpal’s debut flick, Champion. While September 30 has a couple of big-ticket releases, the first week of October, bang in the middle of the Dasara festiviti4s, is still up for grabs. Thereafter it gets busy. As of now, four films, including Shubhamangala, Champion, Head Bush and Gandhada Gudi are the October Kannada releases.
