It is not ‘Rathna Manjari’ of Master Hirannaiah’s ‘Devadasi’ but just a ‘Manjari’ alias Manjari Phadnis for S Narayan ‘Munjane’ who was found decked in beautiful saree at ‘Mussanje’ on the rainy evening at Tagore estate near Nityananda Ashrama near Bidadi.
Third film with S Narayan and Ganesh combination ‘Munjane’ was a quick announcement for the story S Narayan prepared during the ‘Cheluvina Chittara’ time.
Golden star showing his ‘Guru Bhakthi’ after hearing the script pushed aside five films for this film – S Narayan deserves such respect because is a maker with discipline and dedication!
‘Munjane’ is on human relationships and zeal in the family with feel good factor sacrificing without expressing it. When Narayan started writing dialogues fifteen days ago to this film he could not come out from the hangover of ‘Shyloo’ which he worked with Ganesh, Bhama, Rangayana Raghu, Suchendra Prasad and others for K Manju production.
Not revealing much about the film director Narayan promised there will be a ‘Hitavadha Anubhava’ for the audience who come to the theatres.
Golden star Ganesh quickly on another one after ‘Shyloo’ described that it is easy to work with director like Narayan because they will not be having any confusion. I have immensely liked the content part and it has not come in the last 18 films of mine. The sacrifice at different stages of life is what focused touched all class of people says Ganesh.
Manjari Phadnis who is in acting division from her college days mentioned that she has been advised not to express anything on the contents of this film. Rok Sako To Rok Lo, Jaane Tu…Yaa Jaane, Faltu, Mumbai Salsa are her Hindi films ‘Siddu from Srikakulam’, ‘Inkosaari’ and ‘Shubapradham’ in Telugu followed by Tamil film ‘Muthirai’ are other films of this sweet looking actress Manjari.
Rajagopala Joshi of Horanadu a popular television actor was picked after he was watched in ‘Pritiyinda’ by S Narayan. He thanked the selection made by senior director Narayan. Malavika Avinash is for the first time acting in S Narayan film. She plays mother to Golden star Ganesh in ‘Munjane’.
Jagadish Wali continues his affiliation to S Narayan films. He has worked in quite a few films of S Narayan. This ‘Munjane’ is contrast to ‘Shyloo’ he disclosed for a question.
