Truth be said, I’ve seen more Korean films than Kannada movies!
The Kannada film industry makes the trashy Kollywood, Tollywood and Bollywood look like they produce nothing but masterpieces.
Kannada films had their heyday in the 1970s and 1980s.
Since then, it’s been in precipitous decline.
I present below one of my favorite Kannada songs Namoora Santeli from the Kannada film Gaali Maathu (1981). Dorai-Bhagavan directed the film and Rajan-Nagendra were responsible for the music.
No, I have not seen Gaali Maathu.
From my Internet research, I know the film starred Kokila Mohan, Lakshmi, Jai Jagadish, Hema Choudhary, K S Ashwath, Sampath, Shanimahadevappa, Mysore Lokesh, Bhavana, Leelavathi, Lalithamma and Srirekha.
Enjoy the lovely fast-paced, Namoora Santelli rustic song by clicking on the above YouTube video!
Kokila Mohan, not the best of actors, does a fine job in the Namoora Santeli song.
