Necessity is the mother of all invention. Director Shashank Soghal and his team were halfway through their dream project when the pandemic struck in 2020. The software engineer-turned-filmmaker was anxious about his debut venture as he hadn’t even announced the project. Thus was born a unique marketing campaign for the crowd-funded Daredevil Musthafa, the Kannada film which is making waves since its release on May 19. The film, set in the 70s, is an entertaining college drama that offers a message of unity amidst the backdrop of communal conflict.
