Story Line –
Saavira Mettilu (1000 Steps) may enter the Guinness Book of Records for many reasons. Jayanthi, then 20, was the heroine. She’s 58 now, and she’s still the heroine in the movie. There’s been no film in which any heroine’s acted her age, both in the young and old roles.
The story? It revolves around Jayanthi, a young girl who lives in the hills, and walks a 1000 steps down to her college, and a 1000 up, back home. She meets Kalyan Kumar, a rich young man, when his car’s punctured in the hills, his hand trapped under the car. Jayanthi helps him by lifting the car, and love blossoms. The parents fix the wedding date.
Puttanna Kanagal had directed the film up to this point, in black and white. Recently, Basave Gowda, the co-director, actor and story writer of the film, decided to complete the film. But many who’d acted in the film, were dead.
Those appeared in the unfinished project of ‘Saavira Mettilu’ not living today are Kalyankumar, Pandari Bai, Vajramuni, music director Vijayabhasker, cameraman D.V.Rajaram, Nanjaraj Urs, Kanagal Prabhakara Shastry and others.
The famous flute player Pravin Godkindi has given the final touches to the music direction of Vijayabhasker.
