Suni’s Bazaar to release with eight non-Kannada films during Makara Sankranti
The other releases next week include Rajinikanth’s Petta, Ajith-starrer Viswasam in Tamil and Ram Charan’s Vinaya Vidheya Rama in Telugu
With his Bazaar releasing during Makara Sankranti week, director Suni is up for a challenge as he competes with big non-Kannada films. His film is coming along with eight others, including Rajinikanth’s Petta, Ajith-starrer Viswasam in Tamil and Ram Charan’s Vinaya Vidheya Rama in Telugu.
"With almost all films of other languages releasing in Karnataka, a Kannada film will get fewer number of screens,” says Suni, adding, “Despite having a blockbuster hit like KGF and positive reviews for the recently-released Ananthu v/s Nusrath, it is always a struggle to get theatres for our own language, and ours become the last priority.”
Suni says he is not in a capacity to block a film’s release, but is confident about his content. “Being a fan of Rajinikanth, even we fear to release a film along with his. However, knowing that Kannadigas look for content-based movies, I am sure Bazaar falls in that category,” says Suni.
Bazaar marks the debut of Dhanveer Gowda along with Aditi Prabhudeva, and is said to be ‘a reversible love story’. “Usually, a boy falls in love with a girl and tries to impress her, but in the case of Bazaar, the lead hero is hell-bent on experiencing love failures. Whether he gets successful at it is the theme of the film. The film explores pigeon racing, and will also be my first mass film," says Suni.
