Bangaarada Jinke

Bangaarada Jinke.
This 1980 released Nagabharana directed movie, starred Vishnuvardhan and Bharati and had reincarnation as the main theme. As usual, there is very little information available on the Internet about the movie.

How I wish someone started a Kannada film web site similar to IMDB!

Hardwork & Patience

ದುಡಿಮೆಯೇ ದೇವರು

ಶರೀರವೇ ತೋಟ ಮನಸ್ಸೇ ತೋಟಗಾರ
ಚಟುವಟಿಕೆಯೇ ಗೊಬ್ಬರ ಸೋಮಾರಿತನವೇ ಬಂಜರು

ಎಲ್ಲವು ವಿಫಲವಾದಾಗ ತಾಳ್ಮೆಯು ಸಫಲವಾಗುವುದು
