Swathi Mutthina Male Haniye, which is Kannada actress Ramya’s debut venture as producer, under her AppleBox Studios, has been ready and waiting for its date with audiences for a year. Written and directed by Raj B Shetty, who is playing the protagonist Aniketh, the film, according to him, was meant for OTT audiences, but in the current market dynamic, where platforms are picking content only after a theatrical release, and preferably a good one at that, the makers were forced to take the theatre route. The film, as such, is coming to theatres on November 24. It will be in competition with Abishek Ambareesh’s Bad Manners and Darling Krishna’s Sugar Factory.


To be released by KRG Studios in Karnataka, Swathi Mutthina Male Haniye was recently censored and was certified clean U. The film has a sub two hour run-time, clocking 1 hour and 41 minutes run-time only. Also starring Siri Ravikumar in the lead, Swathi Mutthina Male Haniye unfolds at a hospice for the terminally ill, where she is a therapist called Prerana, whose job it is to prepare those in their end stages to come to terms with their prognosis and make the transition as easy as possible. When she then encounters a new patient, Aniketh, who chooses against having counselling in his last days, she makes it a point to change his views on that. The impact that Aniketh and Prerana have on each other and the beautiful albeit short-lived relationship that blossoms forms the crux of the film

Swathi Mutthina Male Haniye was initially meant to be Ramya’s comeback film, but she later chose against playing the character of Prerana, as she felt that it was a role that was better suited for a relatively newer face. The film also stars Gopalkrishna Deshpande and Sandhya Arekere, both of who were in Raj’s last film, Toby, as well. Midhun Mukundan fills in as music director, his fourth project with Raj, while Pravin Shriyan is credited as cinematographer.
