Director Suni is known for introducing several new faces in Sandalwood and he is all set to do it again. The ace director will be wielding the megaphone for the movie titled Bazaar, which will feature debutant Dhanveer Gowda as the male lead.
Moving away from his trademark films that dealt with romance predominantly, the director has chosen to make a film on pigeon races with gambling as its backdrop. However, the film will have its share of romance. Gambling in pigeon races do happen in Bengaluru and Mysuru regions and the director will be touching upon the subject. Malayalam film Paravaa was also based on pigeon racing.
It may be mentioned here that Dhanush made a film on similar lines a few years ago under the title Aadukalam. The film, directed by Vettrimaran, went on to win six national awards including the Best Actor award for Dhanush and Best Director Award for Vettrimaran. It dealt with rooster fighting.
According to sources close to the Bazaar team, the film will revolve around pigeon fighting and gambling till the end and will be completely different from Aadukalam. While the core subject may appear to be somewhat similar, Bazaar is a completely different movie, we hear. Scoring the music for this flick will be Ravi Basrur and Santhosh Rai Pathaje will be cranking the camera.
The shooting of Bazaar will commence from Sankaranthi onwards and this is expected to be announced officially soon. Suni made his debut as director with the 2013 release Simple Agi Ondh Love Story. He then went on to direct Bahuparak and Operation Alamelamma. Having a string of successes under his belt, movie buffs are waiting eagerly for more info on his next.
