    This is the first Tulu play i watched and realised what i have been missing all these years. it was too good. I remember having the same effect after watching Mungaru Male & then on i watched a string of good kannada movies like Mussanje Maathu, Milana etc. "Yelle yaan kaasdaye" kept the audience enthralled continously for 2&1/2 hours without any boring moment. Superb performance. These talented artistes can easily be film personalities if given an ooportunity. I am looking forward to the next tulu drama to be staged in dubai.
