At one point of shooting for this film well known writer and director Prof Baraguru Ramachandrappa whispered to his colleagues on the sets ‘Amruthamathi’ should have been like this lady ‘Haripriya’ – she has remained so perfect to the role made Prof Baraguru to come to this conclusion.
This is a big praise for Haripriya who is in the 13th century queen role who goes behind the sexual happiness giving up the opulence of her family. She goes behind the caretaker of horses Ashtavanka who is also a singer. In the original it was ‘Elephant’ but Prof Baraguru Ramchandrappa made it is ‘Horse’ yard because horse signifies the power of sex. It is a clash between ‘Kama and Sukha’ in the film. Kishor is giving ‘Sukha’ – opulence to his wife while Tilak is attracted by Amruthamathi for filling sexual hunger. Yet ‘Amruthamathi’ is in ‘Ithi and Mithi’ of Prof Baraguru Ramachandrappa.
