Documentarian and wild-life conservationist J.S. Amoghvarsha endeared all Puneeth Rajkumar's fans through Gandhada Gudi. The docu. picture, aside from being a glorious expedition that traversed Karnataka's rich natural heritage, captured the Powerstar's creative zest for exploration and trying some new. Amoghavarsha and Puneeth would buddy up for a riveting journey across the state and their one-of-a-kind experience was captured beautifully by a sound technical crew.
The film opened in theatres on October 28th, 2022 to great reception and with audiences thronging cinema halls to catch one final glimpse of the Powerstar, it fetched equally good box office results. Amazon Prime Video managed to acquire the digital rights and the OTT platform recently announced that its patrons will be able to stream the film from March 17th.
But, for those who wish to catch Gandhada Gudi one final time on the big screen, here's a great chance. The film has been selected to be a part of the upcoming 14th Bengaluru International Film Festival (BIFFes), which will be held from March 23rd to 30th. Gandhada Gudi will be accompanied by many other Kannada films of the popular genre in the special 'A Session of Kannada Popular Cinema' category. The exact schedule of the film festival is expected to be announced at the earliest.
Some of the other films that are part of the 'Kannada Popular Cinema' category are KGF: Chapter 2, Kantara, 777 Charlie, Vikrant Rona and Gaalipata 2. With 2022 being a watershed phase for Kannada cinema during which one saw a number of films rise to prominence as part of the 'pan-India' phenomenon, the upcoming category at the BIFFes attempts to shine a light on some of the most successful attempts.
Other categories of the 14th BIFFes include Kannada classics like Bangarada Manushya, Kasturi Nivasa, Sri Krishnadevaraya, Bhootayyana Maga Ayyu, Jamumada Jodi and America! America!! as part of the 'Revisiting Classics of Indian Cinema' section.
