Samyukta Hornad: I enjoy being on sets that are chaotic

Samyukta talks about her upcoming release, Arishadvarga, a film directed by Arvind Kamath that will be out in theatres on November 27

Published: 22nd November 2020

The title Arishadvarga sounds complex, and so is the movie, says Samyukta Hornad who plays one of the lead roles in Arvind Kamath’s upcoming directorial.

The film is set for a November 27 release, and the trailer has received a lot of appreciation. “Arishadvarga means ‘Your inner demons’. This is a murder mystery, but it has not been treated like one. It also has mysteries between relationships. There are five-six main characters, and you get to see their different sides and how they go about solving the mystery. There is drama as well. That’s how this film becomes quite complicated and interesting, like the title,” says Samyukta, who plays the role of Sakshi, a greedy aspiring actor. 

Scroll through this actor’s profile, and it is apparent that she enjoys playing complicated roles. Samyukta admits that characters with darker shades interest her a lot. “I like being part of the chaos,” she says, and adds, “I enjoy being on sets that are more like wedding functions — so many things happening and a lot of confusion — I love that kind of atmosphere. I don’t like to just wear makeup and act, and am more interested in what work everyone is putting in. When Arvind approached me and gave me the script, I asked for two days before I said yes. The reason I agreed to do it was that when I went through the story, the director had also talked about certain camera shots that he had planned, which explained his dedication towards the project.”

Talking about the complexity of conveying such a subject to the audience, Samyukta points out, “The problem is that we always underestimate the intelligence of the audience, especially Kannadigas. The best part about the film is that even though the director has come up with a complicated story, he makes it very simple for the viewers. That’s the beauty of cinema. It is a subject that every household will connect with and enjoy.”

Also starring Avinash, Mahesh Bunda, Sripathi Manjanabailu, Aravind Kuplikar, Nanda Gopal, and Gopalkrishna Deshpande, Arishadvarga has music by Harithas and cinematography by Balaji Manohar.
