Kannadigas can be hard to come by.
You may not even be able to find them on the big screens of major cities, let alone in the cinema.
In the past decade, there has been an explosion of films by young filmmakers, and it is now being celebrated across the country.
One such film is Kannadegaon: The Story of a Film by a Young Man from Kerala.
The film is the work of Anupam Thakur, a 26-year-old who has recently moved to New Delhi from Kerala, where he studied Film Studies and worked in the film industry.
The film follows a young man’s journey through a Kanna forest in Kerala’s south-east.
The title Kannabegaon is a fitting title for this film.
The story, based on the novel by the same name by Vimala Narayanan, is a comedy about an outsider who is trapped in a forest for five days and discovers a beautiful woman who is trying to save him from an evil force.
The story takes place in a KANNADIGAON forest, in Kerala, a region that is rich in Kannadan culture and art.
The forests have been transformed by climate change and the introduction of monsoon rains, and the forest is full of life and natural beauty.
This forest has also witnessed an extraordinary phenomenon: in some parts of the forest, there are trees that grow to the height of three metres (13ft) tall, some with a canopy that stretches to the ceiling.
There are also large patches of bamboo, as well as a number of wild creatures.
This is all to give the film a sense of the natural world.
The director’s first film, which he shot in a remote part of the country, was a critical and commercial success.
In 2015, Thakar moved to Chennai and set up his studio there.
He was also part of Kannadi Films, the first Kannabi film to win a prestigious award.
Kannadegataon was an instant hit and was screened at several festivals, including the Bangalore Film Festival, and won the prestigious Best Foreign Film Award at the 2017 Mumbai International Film Festival.
He also has two films scheduled to be released later this year.
Thakur has been working on Kannado films for the past few years, but this film is his first foray into the world of film.
He said that he had been working for years on the Kannadesha genre.
“I had always been interested in the art of film making, and this genre was something that I found interesting.
It was very much like a passion that I was passionate about.
I had a lot of ideas for films,” he told me.
Kanna forestThe forest has been changed by the monsoon, with the forests’ natural beauty transforming into a forest that is lush with wildlife.
The forest is also filled with plants that are used to make cloth and other fabrics.
This was a key element of Thakir’s original story.
The forest was a place that had always fascinated Thakr, so he decided to do a film about it.
He had already worked on several films on Kanna forests in Kerala and in other parts of India.
“I had a passion for forest and I wanted to capture the beauty of this unique and rich landscape in this film,” he said.
“This film will have a special place in my heart, and I am going to take care of it to the best of my ability.
I am looking forward to getting to know the forest and its people and their unique culture.”
The director said that the film will not only tell a story of a forest, but will also be a journey through it.
“We have to take into account all the elements of the Kanna Forest, which is the heart of the story.
We have to create a world that is not just a picture of Kanna, but also an experience,” he explained.
“The forest is our world, our world and we need to create an atmosphere of awe and respect for the forest.”
Thakar said that his main inspiration for this story was his mentor, the author and film maker Rajaram Prakash.
“Rajaram was the man who made me realise that this was not just another film about Kannabes, but a story about our forest, our culture and our heritage,” he added.
The producer said that Thakart is looking forward also to working with some of his favorite filmmakers, including Dhanush Tiwari and Madhu Prakare.
“When I watch the films of the best filmmakers, I get a strong feeling of connection to them,” he joked.
The producers of KANNADEGAON are looking forward too.
“He is a big talent and he has worked with some great filmmakers, so we will definitely do our best to create the best film possible,” said the producer.
