Mangaluru, Feb 25: Film director Ranjith Suvarna who entered Coastalwood as a full time director in 'Dombarata' is preparing for his second film 'Umil'. Its script and graphics work is in progress. It is a new form of story for Tulu cinema. Producing a tulu film using graphics for the first time is part of the uniqueness. Ranjith hopes to have a song sung by the 'Pearl of Tulunadu' Arvind Bolar.
'Umil', which means a mosquito, is the main character in the film. Umesh Mijar (Chotu) who made the people float in the sea of laughter in 'Bale Thelipale' can be seen in the lead role for the first time. Dombarata fame Pooja Shetty is cast opposite him.
"There is no similarity between the film and mosquitoes though. Although, the film has its own comedy-filled story and will give a new taste of cinema to Tuluvas," said director Suvarna.
The director says that there are three songs in the film which will convey an excellent message to the society. Shooting will be held in Udupi and Mangaluru in May this year. Navin D Padil, Bhajaraj Vamanjoor and Arvind Bolar can be seen in special parts. Ranjith says that more veterans will be given a chance in the future
The film is being produced by Karunaker Shetty and Prajnesh Shetty.
