Edegaarike kannada movie review

Edegaarike is a movie based on another movie of the same name that came out in the 90’s. Directed by Sumana Kitthur, the story casts Adhitya, Akanksha, Atul Kulkarni and many others. The music has been given by Sadhu Kokila and it has been produced by MS Ravindra and Syed Aman Bachchan. Rakesh B has done the camera of the movie.

The story tells us about the life and days of Agni Shridhar who was an editor and writer of a particular tabloid. The story of the film has proven the fact that how much of the people are seriously interested to know about a Don’s life. It is interesting to know that people who watch film as a source of entertainment will not prefer to watch this film in the theatres. The entire film has a somber serious look, which becomes difficult to bear towards the end. The film has tried to portray that in spite of being a don, a man can be innocent in media’s eyes.

The film has no modes of providing entertainment to the audience and this has led to very few viewers of the film. The director has mixed up the values of love and crime on the screen and this does not create a very good effect here. The film would be more suitable as a short film, because it lacks most elements that would have made it a commercial film.

On the point of view of performance, Atul Kulkarni has done extremely well as the protagonist. Adhitya has however been quite rigid throughout the movie and has created a negative response from the audience. Other actors have scored an average with their respective performance.

The camera work is worth praising, and so is the music.

Verdict: Just an Average movie

Rating: 2.25/5

Olavina Ole kannada movie review

The movie Olavina Ole that came out recently sees Santosh as the lead with Neha patil, Rekha, Shanker Ashwant and many more playing various roles in the movie. This movie has been directed by Teshi Venkatesh. The camera has been done by Mahantesh Maski and the music has been composed by Yashovardhana. It was produced by Mamatha Venkatesh.

The story revolves around a simple story based on a true incident. Death due to killing if not married within the same caste forms the basic point of the movie.

If we go on to analyze the movie minutely, we would find that the film should have been released about twenty years before. There is too much of feelings inflicted upon by the caste system of the society. This is not seen in reality. The film brings upon too much of contradiction. The director of the film has made a strong impact upon the audience by various aspects of the film. The film does not portray too much action. However, the reaction is brought about by the scenes. There elements of surprises throughout the film. Nobody would have ever imagined such an action from any grandfather.

Although the film has certain monotonous figures like an innocent hero, short tempered heroine and a loveable mother, the caste system of the society has cast a formidable shadow on their lives. Some parts of the movie seem unnecessary and too long. These were not expected by the director. All in all there was more scope for exploitation.

Shanker Ashwath has been seen as the best actor in the movie. His delivery of dialogues and his looks has made a fearsome effect on the people. The others have done pretty well. When analyzed technically, we do not find too great elements in it. It is what might be called watchable.

Verdict: Below Average

Rating: 2.5/5

Krishnam Vande Jagadgurm telugu movie review

The movie Krishnam Vande Jagadgurm is a movie which has been directed by Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi. The star cast of the film includes Sameera Reddy, Rana Daggubati, Milind Gunaji, Nayanthara and many others. Music has been provided by Mani Sharma and Gnanasekhar has done the cinematography of the film. It has been producedby Y Rajiv Reddy and Saibabu Jagarlamudi.

This movie has gained popularity in the film industry owing to its excellent narrative and great direction techniques. Daggubati’s previous venture Naa Ishtam Rana did not score very well and hence he made up in this movie. There are two heroes who are seen in this movie. The first is the actor Rana and the second is played by the excellent script of the movie, which has won many praises. Rana has performed extremely well and he has chosen the best script of all times. This has put him high in the status of a commercial hero. The movie has many action scenes and might be taken for an action movie. However, Rana’s excellent acting skills have taken the movie to an entire new level.

The story of the film goes this way. Subrahmanyam is a legendary actor of the theaters and is a part of the popular Surabhi Group. Rana happens to be his grandson and plays in asome of the plays on the stage. However, his heart is not into acting as he wants to go to the United States and pursue his career and fulfill his dreams. However, due to several requests by Subramanyam, he agrees to perform in one last drama, which is named as Krishnam Vande Jagadrum. In the meantime he pays a visit to Bellary where a theater festival is taking place. He is then exposed to the brutal realities of life, where the Mafia rules over the poor helpless people, exploits them and spreads his tyrannical rule. The rest of the story shows how he plunges forward, devotes himself completely to save the helpless people and eradicates the Mafia rule.

As already mentioned Rana Duggabati has been seen playing the lead role in the film, Krishnam Vande Jagadrum. His performance has been considered as one of the best in the contemporary film scene. The amazing fighting scene that he takes part in and the splendid delivery of his dialogues is worth remembering. Nayanthara is the lead actress in the movie who plays the role of a reporter. The good looks of the heroine and the excellent chemistry that has been build up between her and the actor are some of essential treats that engages the audience throughout the movie. There are hardly any drawbacks that have been sighted in this movie. Venkatesh in his special role has added to the freshness of the film. He and Samira Reddy have led to an increasein the tempo of the movie by their special performance in the hilarious Song Sequence. Other actors have also performed to their best and this has helped a lot in bringing out the true essence of the film. One can however feel a bit bored in the beginning of the film owing to the drama that has been incorporated in the film. In all, this movie can be given the title of a good entertainer.

Technically analyzing the film has been given a script which is fast paced and great narrative. Full appreciation goes to Krish for bringing out such a great story and showing it in this way. He has truly developed this movie as a form of art and brought it out as an action movie.

Verdict: Entertaining, Worth for watching

Rating 3.5/5

REVIEW

After a series of flop movies Mega star Mamooty is back again to reload his draining image with the Movie “Face to Face” directed by “V.M vinu”. Face to Face is a malayalam mystery thriller film starring Mamooty,Roma Asrani ,Ragini Dewedi etc..
The movie is conveying the story of a police officer C.I Balachandran(Mamooty) who has several blackmark in his track record because of his high temper and harshness.The main theme of the movie is an investigation to find the culprit who murdered a strong political leader’s son and the central role C.I Balachandran will get accused for the same.The charge of encounter will be given to SP Ramdas (Siddique) and at the end Ramdas comes with a conclusion that Balachandran is the culprit .The later part of the movie deals with how Balachandran is proving his innocence and how he trap the real murderers .Till the interval everything is really thrilling and the scene just before the interval is set to make the audience charged ,Thus the first half ends with full of thrills and confusions.
But the Second half of the movie seemed to be a disappointing one because the director included some family stuffs in to the script in order to get attraction from family audience.The second half depicts many family and social issues the world is facing today but the fact is that because of all those stuffs audience may have a feel that whether the director had forgotten the main core of the movie. The same spoiled the rating earned by the first half. The only merit of second half is that it communicates several social issues that the younger generation faces today and about the climax ,it was just an average one.
While observing the movie from start to end it is just an average one which doesn’t have any new plot.The script by the new comer Manoj Payyanoor seemed to be promising in the first half but failed in the second half.Looking in to other parts of the movie like music,cinematography etc…everything except the music seemed to be fine especially the cinematography by Ajayan.
Coming to the performance side mamooty and siddique played their role very brilliantly and the four new comers Gautham, Rishikesh, Rohit and Binoy were decent but the charecters of Roma Asrani ,Ragini Dewedi doesn’t hand nothing much to do and the others were just ok.

Rating : 2.5/5

Verdict : Just an Average movie , Recommended for one time watch

It is interesting to note that Ann as well as Jomon is not ready to comment about anything on this topic. Both are extremely busy in their work as they have various projects lined up for them. Though Mr. Augustine has promptly announced that it is a’ proper arranged marriage’ we can solve the equations ourselves. Incidentally, the two, Ann and Jomon had come across each other on the sets of V.K Prakash’s film, Poppins. Jomon was working as the Director of Photography in it. Another co-incidence is that both of them have completed their respective education in Bangalore.

The cinematographer had started his career with the film, Traffic by Shyju Khalid. He has since then contributed a lot in the cinematographic field with a lot of works like Beautiful, Ayaalum Njanuum Thammil and many more. His recent work is ABCD which is still on shooting sets.

Ann meanwhile is extremely busy with her projects and her recent film coming up this December.
