Mangalore: 'Telikeda Bolli' Devdas Kapikad Enters Kannada Filmdom

November 17, 2008

Devadas Kapikad is a household name in Dakshina Kannada district. His name spells magic and brings smile on the lips of the theatre'savvy citizens of the district. . He is a dramatist, actor and director par excellence and therefore, an institution unto himself.. The ease with which he becomes one with the role he dons, his acting prowess and the sense of timing in delivering punch lines., have earned him the title 'Dialogue King' from his fans.  Because of him, those who were never interested in Tulu dramas, started thronging the theatre. If Kapikad is there in the play, the audience are sure of getting more than their money's worth.

'Bale Chaa Parka,' the first play he authored and acted in, is making waves even now, after so many years since it was first staged.  With him, Tulu theatre has grown and matured.  Kapikad is on the threshold of adding another feather to his cap, that of acting in a Kannada movie. When asked as to why it took him so many years to act in films, Devadas smilingly says, that he received several offers from the movie makers  in the past, but was too busy with plays to accept any such offers.

He did not want to set aside several days at a stretch for shooting, out of his busy schedule in the Tulu theatre. On one occasion, Kapikad recollects, that he was offered a huge sum of money with a request to make a film, but had politely turned down the offer. "Some day, I will make a film for that man, who returned unhappy after I rejected the officer. I feel guilty about it," he confesses.

Even though Devadas Kapikad  belongs to a family which is originally  from Kapikad in Bejai Mangalore, he was born and brought up in a village near Bantwal.  Like any other kid, he too was attracted by the plays he saw as a young boy and wanted to be a part of this performing art. Unlike others, he sustained his interest and succeeded in realising his dream.

Kapikad recollects, that he was very naughty when young and used to cut jokes in classes  and made his class mates laugh. "There were instances in which my class mates were thrown out of the class because they were laughing, but I never got caught," Kapikad admits now, albeit candidly.  His nature to see vagaries of  life and day-to-day happenings in lighter perspective, have  helped him enormously in facing challenges the life threw at him later in life.

Devadas had written a play  when he was a college student and had presented it. It drew lot of acclaim.  He later shot to fame with 'Bale Chaa Parka,' a landmark in Tulu theatre. His later plays that made a mark  include 'Gantetand,' 'Eer Doora?', 'Pudar Deetiji,' 'Nikulu Materla Ullaratta,' 'Dever Nadappuver,' 'Dever Deelekkapund,' 'Yaan Ori Baroliya,', 'Bolli,', 'Babu,' 'Telipandinaklu Telipule,' etc., All the 40 plays he authored basically were aimed at making people happy. Kapikad has made people forget their worries and laugh heartily  and taught them to laugh at themselves, in addition to taking life lightly.

"I strongly believe, that those involved with the theatre should be able to earn enough through their art, to lead a decent  and honourable life. Many people take acting or writing as a hobby, besides their regular employment. But, for those who dedicate their lives for the sake of theatre, their hard work shouldl never go unrewarded," Devadas Kapikad feels strongly. He proudly points out, that all the 28 people involved with his 'Bale Chaa Parka' have become financially stable and a few of them have also built houses of their own.

Kapikad does not forget to add that his wife Sharmila has been a pillar of strength and inspiration for his endeavours. She knows his strengths and is confident that one day, he will produce a film of his own and act in a leading role.

Asked about his foray into Kannada cinema, Kapikad says he was very much attracted by the cinema, in fact even before he was mesmerised by the theatre. Speaking about the role he has now accepted after carefully scrutinizing the script, Kapikad explains, that he will be in the role of a police constable in the movie,' Venkata in Sankata', while Ramesh, director of the film,  will be his superior. Ramesh wants to get promotions and works towards it. But, whatever he does goes astray  and the constable gets promotions. Kapikad expects the movie to be popular because of  its pure entertainment value and smooth story line.

Devadas is  very appreciate of director Ramesh, who he says, is always in good mood, respects his colleagues and inspires others to give their best. Asked about his experience in front of the camera, Kapikad says that he did not feel any nervousness as he had enough experience of acting in front of the audience.

"I will never desert the theatre, it is my first love," declares Devadas Kapikad.  He also says, that he will accept future roles if there are good offers. "Maintaining a balance between the two fields is a challenge and I love challenges," he says. About his prospects of writing scripts for movies, he reveals, that efforts are currently on to make a movie out of one of his plays. "I want to settle down as an actor first, before taking up other activities in the cine world," he emphasizes.

The audience of the district have enjoyed Devadas Kapikad's scripts, dialogue delivery and acting. There is no doubt that they will love him as a cine actor. They would be sincerely wishing, that the actor-dramatist-director who made them laugh, will continue to succeed in whatever he does  and will do.

    Ln. Devdas, you have made it and it was my dream to see you in silver screen when Star Ramesh Arvind my friend asked me to introduce you to him by just listening to your 'Babu' drama in my car stereo whilst we were driving from Abu Dhabi to Dubai few years back. Later I remember I made you speak to him when I visited your house in Mangalore and insisted you to join Kannada Filmland. Today I am very proud and happy that you have done it. I am sure your fans will surely bless you and reach you to great heights. I want you to be a Super Star and all Mangaloreans are with you, ofcourse Ramesh Arvind is a very very nice and simple man I have ever seen being a Star by himself. Best of Luck 'Telikeda Bolli' 'Toulava Chakravarthi'.

    This is a great news from Kapikads prospective but if he settles in kannada film industry then it will be great loss to tulu drama lovers as we will sure to miss his style of drama and comedy which we have been enjoying for the past 20yrs. However I wish him all the best and hope he will continue to work in tulu dramas.

    Kapikad is really a gem to Tulu with loads of Talent using the drama mode, contributed a lot to Tulu and now it is knocking the door to enter in the 8th form of constitution to be with the national fame …. Very well done Devidas … good luck for your new avtar…. If you started little early you had a very good chance of getting hero role… compare to all lallu panjus in Kannada Industry you have the heroic look, Going back to my personal life a dacade ago … it was becose of Devidas Kapikad’s drama Pudar deethiG (was played in Gandi maidan Karkala) while leading towards Miyar, (now NH 13 )10.30 in the night in my 4s Champion bike with friend, met with very bad accident which made me do be on bed for couple of weeks…. I was driving with fully charged with his and entire team’s acting with action which lead to kiss truck ….. that much impact his dramas had…. Starting from Oriyardori Asal , maamu, dever de lekka aapund, puder deethiji, Ka sol deepar, Akka….. all with mixed flavors’ like, Laugh, Cry, emotion, Sentiment … still I can recall the story even after a decade away from home Again wish Devi…….. all the best and thank you Daiji for wonderful, detail article

    What a great person, this Devdas Kapikad! Imagine someone rejecting a huge offer of money for a film, for the sake of his dramas. How many of us would have done that? Congratulations for all your achievements and best wishes for your future!
