After the recent first-ever Kannada original web series Humble Politiciann Nograj, Voot Select now presents the World Digital Premiere of the Kannada super-hit Badava Rascal on January 26.

Badava Rascal has already received tremendous love from viewers and critics alike. The hit film directed by Shankar Guru is a romantic drama with Daali Dhanajay, Amrutha Iyengar and Rangayana Raghu in key roles. The film also stars Tara, Sparsha Rekha, Nagabhushan, Poornachandra and Maasthi Manju.

Badava Rascal is a reality-based love story of a small-town boy Shankar (Dhananjay) who falls in love with rich politician’s daughter Sangeetha (Amrutha). Despite the hardships, son of an auto-rickshaw driver Shankar manages to crack the MBA degree and has greater ambitions. A tragic incident separates him from his love interest and life takes a drastic turn.

The film peppered with love, emotions, comedy and drama displays the raw yet hard-hitting image of the middle-class segment. Will Shankar and Sangeetha reunite and be able to live happily ever after? Of course they will, but to know how, the film will have to be watched!

Commenting on the film, Daali Dhananjay said, “Badava Rascal will always stay close to my heart for two reasons, one being that it is my home production, and the second is the terrific team I got. It is a story of love and survival, which also highlights sensitive issues like poverty faced by the nation. A character like Shankar changed my perspective towards life. His ambitions were limitless, despite the adversities in his life. His willingness and grit to chase his dreams without giving up on love is inspiring. This film has a strong message for all the youngsters out there: “Do not quit’’ even if the paths get difficult. As Badava Rascal was a lockdown release, we experienced a slight drop in the audience as people were cautious to step in the theatres. With Voot on board, the viewership will proliferate.”

Amrutha Iyengar adds, “Playing Sangeetha, the girl who hails from a rich elite politician family, was a different experience altogether. She was narrow-minded and traditional. I had to develop that mindset to step into her shoes. To convincingly play such a character requires a deep understanding of the script. Our director made the film in a mind-blowing way. It made the entire process easy.”

Director Rangayana Raghu states, “This film has a deep learning and morals for everyone. This is a story that traces friendship, emotions and life with the perfect combination of humor and melodious music. I thoroughly enjoyed filming for it. Each character has a subtle flavor, I am sure families will have a delightful time watching it.”

Topping the IMDB with a rating of 9.4, Badava Rascal is a family entertainer.
