    Waw..yippeee....Great news. New comers showed the so called stalwarts how a movie should be. I started watching sandalwood cinema after a decade because of the reviews of this movie. Fantastic movie from all aspects. A note to all the crew, stay united and give similar cinema in future. I told so much about this movie in the office, that my colleagues, local emirates went and watched and clapped for this movie. Kudos to the crew Rangitaranga.

    Very very proud moment. Only very very few movies get shortlisted for Oscars every year from all over the world. Out of this if a movie from our Country, our State, and original script based on 'GUDDADDA BHOOTHA' that is from our district, Mangalore(Kudla), then it is a moment to really to rejoice & say hearty congratulations to 'RANGITARNGA TEAM'.
