This is director Nagashekar’s first film with the actor duo, which is set to release on October 15.
Since the success of his directorial debut early last year, Darling Krishna has truly become Kannada cinema’s darling, notching up quite a few new titles to his filmography. One of these, is his first collaboration with filmmaker Nagashekar, called email@example.com, which opens in theatres on October 15. Although the film is getting an auspicious festival release, it hits theatres along with two big-ticket movies, Salaga and Kotigobba 3.
A series of firsts for Krishna
firstname.lastname@example.org is Krishna’s first film with director Nagashekar and heroine Bhavana and is his first release since the pandemic. Krishna and Nagashekar, though, have another connection, with the latter having directed the Telugu remake of the former’s Love Mocktail.
All about the film
Nagashekar has been very tightlipped about the content of the film, dropping only subtle hints that it is a love story revolving around a steward, played by Krishna, and a lawyer, played by Bhavana. In the run-up to the film’s release, though, Krishna had elaborated, saying that the story is about his relationship with a single mother and her child. The film has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Sathya Hegde.
Who all are on the cast of the film?
email@example.com is led by Darling Krishna as a 5-star hotel employee, his colleague played by Dattanna, Bhavana as a single mother and lawyer and Rishab Shetty as a police officer.
When is firstname.lastname@example.org releasing?
The film is releasing in theatres on October 15. Despite Darling Krishna’s immense popularity, on the eve of the film’s release, social media was abuzz about the fact that very few screens had been allotted to him, with exhibitors citing Salaga and Kotigobba 3 (which is getting a delayed start on October 15) as the reason. Nagashekar had earlier said that the film would be released as a Kannada-Malayalam bilingual, taking into account Bhavana’s popularity back home in Kerala. However, with theatres in the state set to open (at 50% capacity) only by the end of the month, it remains to be seen if that release plan will work.
