One Kannada film that is receiving uniform appreciation for its songs and promos is Love Guru. The film directed by debutant Prashanth, who worked as an assistant director in Hindi films like Raaz, stars young Tarun and Radhika Pandit in the lead.

Dileep Raj and Yagna Shetty play the other leads. Comedy actor Sharan and Harish Raj also play important roles in the film.

Love Guru is essentially a city based romantic film with techies as lead characters.

Prashanth hails from Bangalore but his passion for films took him to Mumbai where he made corporate ad films. Love Guru produced by his brother Naveen, is his first directorial venture.

Music by Joshua Sridhar of Tamil film Kaadal fame, has already become a huge hit. This is Joshua Sridhar's second Kannada film. His first film Arrasu featuring Puneet Raj Kumar, Meera Jasmine and Ramya was also a musical hit.

Prashanth is confident that the Kannada audience will love Love Guru. "I have not targeted any specific audience. I am sure audience cutting across all age barriers will fall in love with the different type of story telling I have adopted in this film. Music and visuals will be a major highpoint in this film. The songs of the film have been shot in Bangkok and Pattaaya. Jnana Murthy who won lot of appreciation for his camera work in films like Mani and Payana is the cameraman. Award winning Suresh Urs is the editor. I have also delivered a subtle message in the film that romance lives on in the technological era also," says Prashanth.

Prashanth says that the humorous incidents involving Tarun and Radhika will be sweetest moments of the film. "I selected Tarun for the role because I wanted to have a hero who has the corporate look -- the cool dude type. I think both Tarun and Radhika Pandit would be the darlings of the young crowd after the release of the film," says Prashanth.

Tarun feels, "Love Guru is a different type of film for me. I have not played a character like this in my career so far. The songs have already become a rage. The picturisation of the songs is superb. I am really thankful to Prashanth for giving me a new look. Many of my friends tell me that I look stunning in my new looks," chuckled Tarun.

Radhika Pandit also looks stunning in the songs. "I am looking forward to good reaction from the audience. More than the emotional quotient, it will be the comical interludes which would be the major highlight of the film," she adds.
