Krishik Creation's "Maya Bazaar"
is the first venture of Director Umakanth as a producer. He has also composed music for
the film. The director had made name for himself with some of his earlier films like
"Anuraaga Samgam" and "Rangenahalliyaage Rangada Range Gowda", but
somehow missed out there after. But in "Maya Bazaar" he promises a treat to the
viewers. "The film is interesting from the first reel itself" -the director says
Prema plays two roles in the film and according to rumours, one is a negative role. Kumar
Govind and Diwakar are in the roles of two wayward street urchins, who cheat others to
make some money for their living. The two sisters played by Prema are inheritors of a big
property. Some mysterious things take place in the house of Sudarshan, the grandfather of
both the Premas, and attempts are made to kill one of them. The two wayward youths meets
one of the two sisters and assures her of help and security. The climax shows how the
mystery is solved.
Incidentally, it is the first time that Director Umakanth has ventured as a Music Director
and the Songs that are shown in the promos on the Satellite Channel are quite catchy. The
studio reports of the film indicate that actress Prema has given one of her best
performances in the film, and it is bound to appeal to the Kannada film viewers who are
looking ahead to a totally different film. The film has been shot in beatiful locales of
Sakaleshpur, Somwarpet and Forest Areas of Kodagu.
