ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಮಾಯೆ ಹುಶಾರು,No, I am not the author. It is a song from the kannada movie "Duniya" (kannada:ದುನಿಯ). The movie is so good that I decided to write about it here.
ಕಣ್ಣೀರ್ ಮಾರೊ ಬಜಾರು!
ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಶರಣಾದ್ರೆ ಪ್ರೀತೀಗೇ,
ಕತ್ತು ಕೊಟ್ಟಹಂಗೆ ಕತ್ತೀಗೆ!
Duniya is a movie which has completed 100 days in many theaters, and was the only reason we went to watch it. Duniya is a movie which Jogi* attempted to be and failed miserably.
Duniya successfully captures the emotions of a illiterate laborer "Shivlingu", who attempts to earn enough money to build a memorial around his mother's grave. Along with Shivlingu is Poornima, who is an orphan trying to pass 2nd PUC and settle in life.
I love the movie particularly for the way it is pictureised and the director Suri has successfully portrayed love, innocence, helplessness and other emotions in an almost flawless script. One logical flaw which I could not overlook was the innocence levels of Poornima. She is in 2nd PUC for god sake and cannot differentiate between good and bad. Although she has been showed opposing Shivlingu's friendship with "bad" people, I cannot accept that a girl studying in Bangalore can be as ignorant as she has been shown.
but all in all, a movie definitely worth watching. Dont miss it!
4 starts on 5!
My favourite song:" Preethi maye hushaaru"
For those of you who can understand, I won!! horray!!
*Jogi is a much hyped kannada movie which sucks to unbelievable extents. It is one of the very few kannada movies which I have ever regretted watching. Prem, the director of the movie jogi needs social rehab. His direction is marred by extremely bad usage of kannada, utter disrespect to women and is filled hypocritical content. His dialogs lack class and he is taking lead in destroying the beautiful kannada language. If there is one director whose movies you will want to avoid at any cost, it should be that of Prem. Do not attempt to watch them even if it is hyped out of this galaxy or even if you are given a free ticket and a ride back and forth to the theater.
