5 Shots in Puneeth Rajkumar’s Gandhada Gudi Trailer That Made Us All Teary-eyed

Earlier today, the trailer of Gandhada Gudi was released on YouTube. Releasing in the theatres on October 28th, this film marks the last appearance of Karnataka Ratna Dr Puneeth Rajkumar on the silver screen.

Exploring the rich natural resources of Karnataka, Gandhada Gudi is more of a documentary. The film is directed by Amoghavarsha while PRK Productions has bankrolled it. Being the last outing of the Power Star, a few shots in the trailer welled up the eyes of many. We take a look at some of them below:


1) The legendary Father-Son duo

One unexpected shot in the trailer was when a snap out of one of Dr Rajkumar’s films. In this shot, a young Puneeth Rajkumar playfully rests on his father’s chest while his father is wholeheartedly laughing. This brought multiple memories of the duo and their contribution to our state and its culture.

2) The parting shot

Everyone was curious to see how the trailer would end and when the final shot landed, it really tugged the strings of our hearts. Dr Puneeth Rajkumar folding his hands in a namaste symbolically was the tribute of the makers and the citizens to the icon of the state.

3) Do you also dance?

One of the best dancers that the country has seen, Dr Puneeth Rajkumar has a short dialogue about dance. We may have seen the last of his trademark steps but the fans are still hopeful of a miracle in Gandhada Gudi.


4) That smile!

Dr Puneeth Rajkumar is known for his smile which has illuminated many. Yet again, in this trailer, we saw that smile, of which we may not see many in the future. The realization of this was a massive blow.

5) Dr Rajkumar’s childhood home

The shot where Dr Puneeth Rajkumar visits his father’s childhood home was not expected. This sequence would be keenly awaited in the movie. The shot that followed this further heightened the emotions of this frame.
