Imran promises a full scale entertainer with Uppu Huli Khara
The director who admits he did not pay enough attention to commercial elements such as dance and action in his first venture Endendigu, promises his follow up will deliver on all fronts
Imran Sardhariya is set for yet another interesting directorial chapter with his second project, Uppu Huli Khara that is slated for a grand release this week.
Imran marked his directing debut with Endendigu. Since then, it has taken him a little longer to come up with his next film. The filmmaker says he is very excited about Uppu Huli Khara, which according to him “has flavours of life that people will taste and surely like.” He further tells CE, “The underlying theme of my film is how various characters face difficult situations and how well they handle them.”
He says his latest can be classified as a dark humour. “In society or life we see various types of people, some become silent spectators to incidents, others resign to fate, and then there are those who revolt and voice their concerns. Such characters are shown in the film.”
A choreographer-turned-director, Imran says, “As a choreographer, I handle just a four-minute segment, but as a director, the same craft has to be shown from scratch till the release of a movie.”
In the process of directing, he says he has realised the difference between being a choreographer and a director. “My songs, my choreography fetched me more work, and elevated me as a director. Since, I always brought in colour and something new with my dance sequence, the audience expect the same from my direction too. I admit I missed this in Endendigu, as I prioritised the content and forgot about the commercial elements such as dance, action and overall entertainment.”
Uppu Huli Khara has Malashree in a pivotal role, with actors such as Anushree, Sharath, Jayashree, Dhananjay, and Shashi Devaraj also part of the cast. The film has music by Juday Sandy, Prajwal Pai and Kishore Aksa, while Niranjan Babu is the cinematographer.
