Boothayyana Maga Ayyu
This is a classic based on Gorur Ramaswamy Ayyangar’s Short Story. This was produced by four producers; one of them was Kannada stalwart Rajkumar’s younger Brother Varadaraj. He was a instrumental person in Rajkumar’s ascend to stardom, by carefully selecting stories, dialogues which helped him to have a permanent lease of the heart of kannadigas for a lifetime.
This is the first kannada cinema shot 100% in outdoor location, without using studios sets. About 95% of this film had been picturised in Kalasapura.
This movie is a classic in its own respect. Starring the emerging hero Vishnu as Gulla, The taylor made artist for Village background character Lokesh in Sambayya alias Ayyu, The terrorizing M P Shankar as Boothayya, Balanna as modern day Shakuni, Laugh riot character “Pickle” Lokanath and so many.
The scene which moves your tears from the eye ball to cheeks are the one where Vishnu, working in Lokesh’s house to pay back the courtesy extended to him, finds his friends looting Lokesh’s farm yields, promptly fights with his friends, and chase them away. Vishnu’s friends scold him saying that, Lokesh humiliated you in front of the villagers, and he is responsible for Vishnu’s father suicide, but still you are helping him by protecting his property. Vishnu coolly says, am in his mercy now, till the debt taken by him is cleared am his son, once it is cleared am the son of my father.
This eventually proves, if a person is good to us, even whether he or she is bad or good, if that person has enough trust on you, never betray him or her. This can be tweaked to adopt in our professional life as follows.
- Work for your selves. This can lead you to the next milestone
- Work for your manager, this may yield a better monetary gains for a short time.
- Work for the one who trust you, this will surely take your career to next stage, coz this not only helps your career graph, but also proves that you are invaluable and trustworthy confidence oozes in you.
Vishnu character in this movie follows the third option, which ultimately eliminates the rivalry between him and Lokesh, and both are happy at the end along with the villagers, which is a great message to be lived on.
Second one is one of the beautifully carved scene from the monolith rock of kannada cinenma. How can we make best of use of the resource in our hands. Four village dwellers returning to the village with a two rupees note in their hands, with empty stomach, and empty packet, decides to try their lynching hungry stomach, and enters an hotel. The rest of the story is a great epoch in the comedy arena. Watch it for yourself.
It shows, we should never get cornered by the problems, instead make sure problems should see the corner with grit and creativity.
