Melkote Manja is a comedy film written, directed and enacted by the Eddelu Manjunatha star, Jaggesh. Pairing opposite him is the sizzling Aindrita Ray, who has performed brilliantly as well. The movie is a rollercoaster of comedy, drama and slight action. While the contributions of the rest of the cast were commendable, Jaggesh’s quirky comedy kept us hooked.
Watch Melkote Manja here if you want to lighten your mood today:
There are many hilarious scenes in the film, but these five scenes and their dialogues will make you burst out laughing.
1. When you are asked about having a bank account and you proudly state all your other accounts except that!
2. Trying to impress chicks? Well, this ain’t it!
3. Your moneylenders always have EYES ON YOU!
4. Did you know that only the right documents aren’t enough to apply for a loan?
5. Your face when the moneylender sees through your lies!
Despite the seriousness that the character Bhairava brings out in the film, Jaggesh’s humour overpowers all other emotions. Since we know that comedy is his forte, you should expect nothing less than a laughter riot while watching Melkote Manja.
On asking about his motive for making such a film, after starring in what can be called its prequels; Eddelu Manjunatha and Manjunatha Ba Llb, Jaggesh told a leading daily, ” Yes, the movie has taken shape well. The movie is about the hide-and-seek between a person who gives loans and one who takes it. My main intention from my very first movie is to entertain audiences through laughter. I am glad that people are confident that when they watch my movies, they will laugh and relax for two hours“.
