This time he is inspired from a Malayalam film released in September 2015 Adi Kapyare Kootamani that is ‘Abbabba’ in Kannada. Ann Augstine a popular actor in Malayalam films and Vivek Thomas ad film maker in a joint venture under Miramar produced the film. Ann Augstine recalled Miramar was developed in 2017 and it is the first Kannada film in the banner.
KM Chaitanya agrees that the concept is taken from the original but various elements are added into it in Kannada making. The freedom and responsibility I enjoyed doing this film and this is my 9th Kannada film. This is a young team and we had fun shooting for the film. The boys keep up the reputation of the Hostel at the centenary is the crux of the film.
For the lyrics of popular actor Dolly Dhananjay, Vasishta N Simha, another popular actor, rendered the song. At the Covid time this story came. At home I have a 17 years daughter and two years of SSLC and PUC. She could not go to college and had to remain at home. I knew the boredom and so I thought I should invite the audience to post covid and make them laugh. This is ‘Abbabba’ for fun loving audiences set in the hostel background. In Bengaluru and Tumakur the shoot was held and it is a student’s slapstick comedy, says KMC.
Amrtha Iyengar, the most happening heroine with quite a few films on hand, says she is the one who enters the Boys College Hostel and how she comes out is the funny part of the film. Just because of director KMC she agreed to act in this film.
Likit of Sankashta Kara Ganapathi fame is the lead actor with a few close pals in the film. KL Rajashekhar wrote dialogues, Manohar Joshi is cinematographer; Sharat Lohitashva is Warden who is up to 100 years of the hostel. He is in KMC films right from Aa Dinagalu. It is something opposite to his character roles in this film.
Deepak Alexander and All OK Alok did the music and the fun filled song lyrical video was made available to the media.
