Real Star Upendra Returns In BRAHMA, Expect The Unexpected

J Hurtado, Contributing Writer
You've probably never heard of Real Star Upendra. This man is one of the most popular film stars in Karnataka, India, and puts out some of the most insane and outlandish features in mainstream Indian cinema, the latest being the upcoming "historical romance action" film, Brahma. We've only mentioned him once on these pages, in reference to Kalpana, his remake of Tamil hit horror film Kanchana, but seeing that clip (linked below) is enough to make me a believer.

Following up after Kalpana, Upendra made Topiwala. Topiwala was a modest hit at the box office, but left an amazing music video for the song Shangri La in its wake, as a reminder that Upendra is an amazing presence on screen, even in a Fat Elvis style jumpsuit (also linked below).

Unfortunately for me, I can't say that I've seen any Upendra films from beginning to end, as they are never shown subtitled in theaters and finding Kannada DVDs with English subs can be a challenge. However, I've dropped into enough Upendra related YouTube wormholes to know that the guys knows how to deliver on the crazy, so I'm hoping that Brahma makes the grade. The trailer below is nothing too out of the ordinary, but still damned entertaining. Maybe I'll even get to see it.

In the meantime, enjoy a little bit of Real Star Upendra!
