Ethumai Methumai sinhala film by Nishantha Weerasingha

Deshamanya Dr. Upul Jayasinghe. This name sounds familiar for many reasons. In 2000 he was adjudged the most popular cassette producer (Nilwala) at the Rasa Music Awards. Ten years later he walks away with the Sumathi and Raigam awards for the most popular tele drama ‘Ithin Eeta Passe’.

And his ultimate dream is to become the most popular film producer in the coming years.

As the Chairman of Nilwala Group which is involved in various production aspects including printing, Dr. Upul Jayasinghe is a true all-rounder who always did whatever he was passionate about – and ultimately they brought him success.

Today he is not only a popular tele drama and film producer but also the Basnayake Nilame of the historic Sri Nagadeepa Viharaya in the North.

Talking of popularity his latest tele serials ‘Sihina Piyapath’ is being telecast on ITN at 8.30 pm on weekdays while ‘Adaraneeya Chanchala’ is being telecast at 9 pm on weekdays on Rupavahini. Interestingly both these teles which are enjoying top ratings, are directed by Sandun Rajakaruna.

He also produced the most popular tele drama ‘Bonda Meedum’ which ended recently.

The latest mission of Upul is ‘Ethumai Methumai’ – the newest comedy venture which has just been completed with top stars playing main roles in it. Among them are Rodney Warnakula, Priyantha Seneviratne, Anarkalli Aakarssha, Duleeka Marapana, Ananda Wickremage, Anton Jude, Mahinda Pathirage, Susila Kottage, Ronnie Leitch, Hemantha Eriyagama, Shehara Hewaduwa, Ruwan Wasantha and Chalani Balasuriya. Ethumai Methumai is directed by Nishantha Werasinghe.

“We all learn through experience and so do I. Five years ago, I did my first film Nilambare which won Ranjan Ramanayake his very first best actor award while Kanchana Kodituwakku won the best supporting actor award. Economy-wise it was a loss but the lesson I learnt was worth the risk. I continued to produce tele dramas which favoured me financially. I had been in the cassette business for 25 years and I know the real formula now. It took me about four or five years to really realize the formula of tele dramas too. And now with the newest movie ‘Ethumai Methumai’ I am making a renewed effort with wide-open eyes,” said Upul announcing that this film is a series of ten films he is planning to produce and screen before 2012.

“I had dreams and this is one such dream The ingredients of my films would also have parts of my dreams that had been welling up in me over the years. Normally films are about 25% filled with humour, but ‘Ethumai Methumai’ is a 100% comedy film which I believe is the biggest hilarious hit since ‘Allapu Gedara’ in the sixties. My ten-film project will include four comedies because I always like to see people living happily. It will include children’s films too. I know the formula to make quality films with not-so-high budgets. Ethumai Methumai will mark the entry of some newcomers including two playback singers. One is a typical Jothi-type voice which can rock the screens. This will come as heartening news to Jothi fans. I am also introducing a new music director called George Senanayake. I request film fans to expect the biggest comedy movie by November this year

Here’s a producer who has acted in school dramas and won even the best actor award. He must be coaxed persistently if you want to make him sing. That’s Upul Jayasinghe.

On the religious front, he was closely linked to the temple from his childhood and was involved in social work in his youth. In 2009 the Three Sanghanayakes conferred him with the Deshamanya Honorary Doctorate. The following year he was awarded the ‘Sri Jana Ranjana’ award. After being appointed as the Basnayake Nilame of the Tissa Rajamaha Viharaya’s Vishnu Dewale and the Seruwawila Rajamaha Viharaya, last year he was appointed as the Basnayake Nilame of the historic Nagadeepa Viharaya in the North. This was the first appointment of a Basnayake Nilame since Lord Buddha’s visit to the temple.

The popular all-rounder said he was so thankful to his wife Sandhya and son Kavindu for being the biggest strength behind his success.
