Rediff Review

Review: Kalpana is an enjoyable horror film

Kannada film Kalpana makes for a good watch, writes Srikanth Srinivasa

Kannada film Kalpana starring Upendra and directed by veteran Ramnarayan is the remake of the Tamil horror comedy Kanchana.

Raghava (Upendra) is a fun-loving youngster who enjoys playing cricket with his friends. But at night he is afraid of ghosts and is always confined to his home under the care of his mother (Umashri) with whom he sleeps. She also accompanies him to the toilet. His brother (Achyuth Rao), sister-in-law (Shruthi) and their children live together in the same house.

When Raghava and his friends go in search of another ground to play cricket, they find an abandoned field, which, it turns out, is haunted.

At home, his mother and sister-in-law witness some strange happenings. With the help of a temple priest, they confirm the presence of a ghostly spirit haunting their home.

Raghava begins to act funny and shows effeminate behaviour which is when the presence of the ghost is identified.

The film goes on to unravel the mystery of the ghostly Kalpana and her relationship with Raghava.

Upendra takes some time to warm up but soon gets under the skin of the character and acts well as a possessed man. The last scenes in the movie show his prowess and are impressive.

Shruthi as the sister-in-law is superb. Umashri is good in some portions but tends to overact. Achyuth Rao is good. Lakshmi Rai has limited scope. Saikumar, who enacts the part of a transgender, surprises with his superb body language and dialogue delivery.

The music by Harikrishna is adequate.

If you like horror films you may like this.

IndiaGlitz Review

Kalpana - 'KALPANA' a Stunner!

A remake of Tamil film of Lawerence 'Kanchana' in Kannada as 'Kalpana' by one of the senior most directors of South India Ramnarayan in his 125th film direction lends state of the art technology and stunning moments to the horror lovers of cinema.

The film 'Kalpana' has many intriguing moments in the second half. The first half could have been pruned to reduce the length of the film. However for the Kannada audience so much of harsh response of characters is over fed.

It is giving back after death by eunuch. The gory is more in Upendra character. So much of blood and rugged feel could have been reduced. It is not enough hard effort is delivered. It should be soft and appealing. A few of the Kannada films in a clash between Devil and Divine have given a controlled fodder to the audiences.

Raghava (Upendra) a timid youngster is afraid of 'Ghost'. He sleeps with his mother in the night times because he believes Ghost comes in night times. Such a timid youngster is afflicted by ghost of Kalpana (Saikumar a eunuch). That is because he has applied the cricket stumps exactly at the place where Kalpana was buried.

The ghost of Kalpana on Raghav has some target to finish. That is taking revenge on its mentor Akbar and his son. When the power of ghost is locked and thrown in to a sea. The battle is not yet finished. On the gang of Shobaraj ghost of Kalpana takes revenge one by one. When Shobaraj comes to Sri Narasimha Swamy temple for rescue he feels he is saved. It is not so as the divine power turns supreme.

Upendra is fabulous in his performance. He has so many shades to perform in this film. Navarasas of acting is found in him in 'Kalpana'. The whirring eyes of Upendra a natural style of him is another boon to his role.

Achuth Kumar, Umasri, Shruthi have emoted very well. Shobaraj as villain has usual role. Saikumar as eunuch is quite OK. Lakshmi Rai repeating the same performance dances in one song and not got a lengthy role to perform.

V Harikrishna has no scope to give melody in this film. There is lot of sound from instruments and even from lyrics of the songs he has scored.

Selvaraj in his camera is splendid. The effect of dark and light he has captured in the camera deserves appreciation for him. The graphical presentation is also in high standards. Ramnarayan is known for this kind of films - God and Ghost battle with human beings. He continues in the same speed and zeal in 'Kalpana'.

The second half is worth watching!

Upendra: My role in Kalpana will scare people

The year 2012 has been a busy year for Kannada superstar Upendra with Kalpana being his fourth release.

Although not all his films have done well, Upendra has nevertheless won acclaim for his performance in Godfather though it had an average run at the box-office.

The much-hyped 3D flick Katari Veera Sura Sundaraangi also had an average run much to the chagrin of its producer Munirathna Naidu.

The Kannada film Kalpana, which is releasing across Karnataka on Friday, September 28, is a remake of the Tamil hit Kanchana that was released last year.

Kalpana is directed by veteran Ramnarayan and produced under his own banner, Sri Thenaandaal Films.

The film is based on Lawrence Raghava's story and it stars Upendra, Saikumar, Lakshmi Rai, Shruthi and Umashri among others.

In this interview with Srikanth Srinivasa, Upendra talks about his role in Kalpana.

Why is the film titled Kalpana? Is it a tribute to the actress of yesteryears, Kalpana, who was known for her intense roles?

As the original film in Tamil was titled Kanchana, I think the director thought it apt to go with this title.

I think it is a kind of tribute to Kalpana who was a good performer and I think the director must have thought of naming the film in memory of the great actress.

ಕೈಕೊಟ್ಟ ಪ್ರಾಜೆಕ್ಟರ್,ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕರ ದಾಂಧಲೆ

ಚಿತ್ರ ಮುಗಿಯಲು ಇನ್ನೇನು ಹತ್ತು ನಿಮಿಷ ಇದೆ ಅನ್ನುವಷ್ಟರಲ್ಲೇ ಪ್ರಾಜೆಕ್ಟರ್ ಕೈಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದರಿಂದ ರೊಚ್ಚಿಗೆದ್ದ ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕರು ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರ ಮತ್ತು ಅದರ ಕ್ಯಾಂಟೀನ್ ಗ್ಲಾಸ್ ಗಳನ್ನು ಪುಡಿಪುಡಿ ಮಾಡಿದ ಘಟನೆ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆದಿದೆ.

ಜಿಪಿನಗರದ ಸಿದ್ದಲಿಂಗೇಶ್ವರ ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರದಲ್ಲಿ ಉಪೇಂದ್ರ ಅಭಿನಯದ ಕಲ್ಪನ ಚಿತ್ರ ನೋಡಲು ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕರು ಕಿಕ್ಕಿರಿದು ತುಂಬಿದ್ದರು. ಚಿತ್ರ ಕ್ಲೈಮ್ಯಾಕ್ಸ್ ಹತ್ತಿರ ಬರುತ್ತಿದ್ದಂತೆಯೇ ಪ್ರಾಜೆಕ್ಟರ್ ಕೈಕೊಟ್ಟಿತ್ತು. ಸಹನೆ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳು ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರದ ಗ್ಲಾಸ್, ಕುರ್ಚಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಹಾನಿ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರದ ಆಡಳಿತ ಮಂಡಳಿ ಪರಿ ಪರಿಯಾಗಿ ವಿನಂತಿಸಿದ ನಂತರ ಪ್ರಾಜೆಕ್ಟರ್ ನಲ್ಲಾದ ತಾಂತ್ರಿಕ ತೊಂದರೆ ಸರಿಪಡಿಸಿ ಕೊನೆಯ ಹತ್ತು ನಿಮಿಷವನ್ನು ಮತ್ತೆ ಪ್ರಸಾರ ಮಾಡುವಷ್ಟರಲ್ಲಿ ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರದ ಸಿಬ್ಬಂದಿಗಳು ಹೈರಾಣವಾಗಿ ಹೋಗಿದ್ದರು.

ಶನಿವಾರ (ಸೆ 29) ರಾತ್ರಿಯ ಪ್ರದರ್ಶನದ ವೇಳೆ ಈ ಘಟನೆ ನಡೆದಿದೆ.

ಈ ಮಧ್ಯೆ, ಮಾಧ್ಯಮಗಳ ಮಿಶ್ರ ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ರಿಯೆಯ ನಡುವೆ ಕಲ್ಪನ ಚಿತ್ರ ರಾಜ್ಯಾದ್ಯಂತ ಉತ್ತಮ ಪ್ರದರ್ಶನ ಕಾಣುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಎಂದಿನ ಉಪೇಂದ್ರ ಚಿತ್ರದಂತೆ ಈ ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲೂ ಅವರ ಸಂಭಾಷಣೆಗೆ ಜನ ಮನಸೋತಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕ ರಾಮ್ ನಾರಾಯಣ್ ಚಿತ್ರಕಥೆ, ನಿರ್ದೇಶನದ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಚಿತ್ರದ ನಿರ್ಮಾಪಕರೂ ಆಗಿರುವುದು ವಿಶೇಷ. ಮೂಲ ಕಥೆಯನ್ನು ಕೆಡಿಸದೇ ರಿಮೇಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ರಾಮ್ ನಾರಾಯಣ್ ತೆರೆಗೆ ತಂದಿದ್ದಾರೆ

Upendra's Kalpana rocks at Box Office

Upendra's Kalpana has got a flying start at the Box Office. The movie, which was released on September 28, has raked in around Rs 2.50 crore in the first weekend.

Trade reports say that Kalpana has got an average of 65-70% occupancy in the opening weekend. It is said that the movie has collected around Rs 2.50 crore (nett) and the Mysore region is in the top of the collection list. The film has been getting good response from both single screens and multiplex audience.

On the release day, Kalpana was overwhelmingly welcomed by single screen audience and it received decent response from multiplex viewers. In the next two days, it got wonderful response from both mass and class audience.

However, Kalpana, which is a remake of Telugu movie Kanchana (Muni in Tamil), stars Upendra, Sai Kumar and Lakshmi Rai in the leads. It is produced and directed by Rama Narayanan.
