Yeddelu Manjunatha !
Yeddelu Manjunatha ! is a comedy movie made by the director of the critically acclaimed Mata movie. It is already making waves here !!!
There was a very popular devotional song by PB Srinivas of the same name "YeddeLu Manjunatha". I remember during the Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations, there is a temple (near our old house) where this song was played loudly. As soon as the song was played, one of our neighbors (named Manjunatha) used to wake up and walk to the temple (he was one of the key volunteers of the temple)!!!!!
So it was a kind of signalling system or a wakeup call to him. The lyrics went "Devathegalu ninna darushanake kaadiharu" ... and those "devathegaLu" were the temple authorities who were waiting for this guy.
Oh, by the way, in the movie "Yeddelu Manjunatha !", in one of the songs, the lyrics goes :-
"This is a Manjunatha
You can see him anywhere
Manege Obba Manjunatha
Made in India"
Manjunatha is a very common name and the lyric ascertians my belief....I want to see this movie ;-)
