Director

Ricky

Ricky

Ricky, a 2016 Kannada romantic thriller film was my first movie as a director. The story of the movie was written by me and the movie was produced by S. V. Babu. It stars Rakshit Shetty and Haripriya in the lead roles and Achyuth Kumar and Ravi Kale in supporting roles. The film deals with the prevalence of naxalism in South Canara, with a love story in the backdrop. I had conceived this story in 2009 inspired from an incident that occurred in Kundapur near my hometown Kerady in Karnataka which was a Naxal-affected area. I used to hear several stories from people around me, which formed the backdrop of the story. Arjun Janya composed the film's music and Venkatesh Anguraj was the Cinematographer. The movie recieved a lot critical acclaim and was a commercial success running for more than 50 days.
