One of Poornachandra Tejwasi's most celebrated short story - Kiragoorina Gayyaligalu, can now also be felt and enjoyed visually. The amazing characters etched by the writer is relived in every frame and captured to perfection under the able direction of Suman Kittur.
Set in the backdrop of a village, it talks about petty politics, police system, casteism, gender inequality, superstition, and most of all women empowerment. All of this in the most simplest and lightest manner. Every character has a well defined parameter, and comes with the natural performances led by Shwetha as Danamma, Kishore as Kale Gowda, and the beauty is that every other character takes the limelight irrespective of its prominence on the screen.
For ages Kiragooru lived in harmony but once it is disturbed, the ill effects spread everywhere until the strong-hearted women lose their cool. Apart from few dialogues, which are erased (mute) for obvious reasons, it is a feast to actually hear the actual Kannada of our forefathers, who lived in such villages.
In the words of Kalegowda, there is hardly any 'misteek' in this one. So watch this masterpiece! It may also break your vertebrae laughing at the escapades of beautiful rowdies, the victims and the onlookers!
