It's Ranga S.S.L.C. now!


`MOVE OVER Munnabhai, here comes Ranga'. Shortly, a month from now, hoardings all over Karnataka may scream with the slogan. Director Yogesh Bhat says that he had registered the title, Ranga (S.S.L.C.) much before the release of the Hindi film, Munnabhai M.B.B.S. and has not borrowed the idea. "Don't get confused with the titles. It has no resemblance to the Hindi film," says Bhat, adding that Ranga... is 80 per cent comedy and 20 per cent sentiment. Sudeep is doing one more rustic role after that critically acclaimed performance in Swatimuthu (remade from Swatimuthyam) with Ramya and Desi Bopanna in the female lead.

A city-based subject, Ranga has his S.S.L.C. in the brackets because he couldn't complete his schooling. That love can change everything in one's life is the basic theme. Sudeep had this ambition to act in Bhat's film ever since he saw the director's Mani and when Bhat approached him along with producer K.C.N. Kumar, he immediately agreed to act as Ranga, so goes behind-the-screen story. We have to wait till May to see whether Ranga (S.S.L.C.) would also walk the Munnabhai way.

M.L.N.
