What is Kamana Billu about?
Kaamana Billu is a memorable classic about Love, friendship & sacrifice. Though it is a Love triangle, it is an experimental movie, innovative in its treatment, & not a regular commercial potboiler. The direction by chi dattaraj is superb. All the songs are fine, with " Negila Yogi " rendered by the late C.Aswath being the best. It's one of the rare Movies where S.P.Balasubramanyam has sung in a Dr Rajkumar Movie. But the song, rendered by SPB & Picturised on Anant Nag, is not there in the film. As usual, Dr Rajkumar is awesome, & his performance is mind blowing. He infuses life into a multi dimensional role. Really, we miss him today. There is no one who can come anywhere near him today. The other Hero of the Film, Anant Nag, comes up with a scintillating performance , & matches Dr Raj frame by frame. Perhaps, he is the only Kannada Actor who was not over shadowed by the presence of Dr Raj. Anant Nag is one of the finest actors we have in India today. The scenes that depict the friendship between Dr Raj & Anant are fantastic. Saritha excels, as always. Balakrishna, Ashwath, Thoogudeepa Srinivas render adequate support. The film has a message for the public, to give life to physically challenged girls, as Dr Raj does in the last scene. Truly, a master piece, one of Dr Raj's finest films. Made all the more memorable by the rare combination of Dr Rajkumar & Anant Nag, truly an awesome combination. If you have not seen it, see it today. We Kannadigas are privileged to have artistes of the caliber of Rajkumar & Anant Nag amidst us.
