News about Veera Pandiya Kattabomman Movie


July 26, 2010

Shri. Boodgur Ramakrishnaiah Panthulu, born on July 26th 1910, has produced and directed 57 films in all South Indian languages under the banner Padmini Pictures and is one of the pioneers of the Indian film industry. Many of his films have won National and State Awards. His portfolio includes legendary films like Veera Pandiya Kattabomman, which won the Afro-Asian Film Festival award, Kappalotiya Thamizhan, and Karnan. A futuristic thinker of his times, he has made the first ever Techni Color film in India in Tamil (Veera Pandiya Kattabomman) and the first Color Film in Kannada, Shri Krishna Deva Rayalu.

Shri. B.R. Panthalu was closely associated with veterans such as N.T. Ramarao, Nageshwara Rao through his Telugu Films; Shri Sivaji Ganesan through Veera Pandiya Kattabomman, Kappalotiya Thamizhan, Karnan, Sabash Meena and the likes and with Shri MGR in Aayirathil Oruvan, Ragasiya Police 115, and Madurai Meetiya Sundara Pandian to name a few.

Shri B.R. Panthulu has introduced Ms.Jayalalitha to the silver screen first in the Kannada film Chinnada Gombe and later introduced the MGR-Jayalalitha duo in Aayirathil Oruvan. He has also introduced other artistes like Bharathi, given the opportunity to his assistant Puttana Kannagal to direct his first film School Master. Many of his films were remade in all languages including Hindi.

Even after the demise of Shri B.R. Panthulu on Oct 8th, 1974, Srimathi Indira Gandhi previewed the film "Kappalotiya Thamizhan" and was so deeply moved that she granted Entertainment Tax Exemption for the film, forever...

Karnataka is celebrating the entire year starting with a function tomorrow and screening two films in each district every single week and documenting Shri. B.R. Panthulu's biography at the end of the year.
