Plot[edit]

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Director Udaya Prakash renamed himself Vijay Kampali before beginning this venture. He approached director-actor Prem to star in this satirical comedy. The film was earlier said to be based on the real life of Karnataka politician D. K Shivakumar.[5] However the makers refuted the statement and claimed the story was original, not inspired by any person or any other film. Prem had to lose weight in preparation for the role. Chaitra Chandranath, who had a difficult beginning to her career, as her debut film Viraat was shelved, was cast in the lead female role.[6][7] Filming took place extensively in Mysore.[8]

Music[edit]

Anand Audio bought the music rights of the film for about 25Lakhs.[9] Music composer Arjun Janya worked on songs for the film. The folk song "Seshamma Seshamma" features the actress Sunny Leone in a special appearance[10]. Another song titled "India Pakistan Ondagoythu" which featured the names of Modi, Sonia, M. Karunanidhi and J. Jayalalithaa and their relationships was turned down by four playback singers due to the controversial lines, until finally singer Hemanth Kumar recorded the song.[11]
