The eminent poet and writer Subraya Chakkodi feels lonely when he comes to a city like Bangalore leaving his home town that is 350 kilometers away from Bangalore. My village is everything for me in life said the poet who attended the first audio release function of his life on Thursday noon at GM Rejoyz of ‘Samagama’ Kannada film produced by Andani Gowda Halahalli and directed by Kasturi Jagannath. ‘Samagama’ audio is brought to the market by Lahari Recording Company.
In the past literary giant late Poornachandra Thejaswi had told coming to Bangalore is a big pain. People and vehicles move like ants he described in one of the functions.
One of the old numbers of Subraya Chakkodi Manasu Tharave….composed by C.Ashwath (C.Ashwath is Thikla according to Subraya Chakkodi) is retained in the film is sung by Ajay Warior and other love song O Nanna Preethiya Geleya….sung by Chitra is composed by youngster Kiran among four other songs for the film ‘Samagama’.
I had written one song but withdrawn it for not satisfying me. Again I wrote another song for the film to the tune. For me writing a poem needs Ekantha but film lyrics writing is written in Lokantha said learned writer Chokkadi. I had written for jut la la laaa laaalla…. For Thikkalu Manushya C.Ashwath. When tune and situation is given subject will be ready but singer and listeners are totally different. Moortha and Amoortha difference I find between my original poems and film poems.
Producer Adnani Gowda became emotional when he remembered his paternal uncle Channa. He said silence is better when quality of work is done. Later recouping from emotions Gowda remembered going to N Kumar and he in turn advising him for one hour not to come to cinema did not work out. ‘thale Illadhavarige helodhu Kashtya, thale sari illadavarige thale sari madabahudhu’ N Kumar must have been feeling said Gowda. We have completed the film now and two songs shooting were not up to the mark and they were re done again. For the success of completion of this project there are many behind me said Gowda.
