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

God Father kannada movie review

‘God Father’ is the remake of original Tamil movie entitled Varalaaru. In this movie, viewers will find Upendra to play triple roles in this Kannada remake version. In Varalaaru, Ajith was responsible to perform triple roles to make movie more interesting.

The whole movie suffers from emotional fixations.  In this remake version, Shiva has been entrusted to play the protagonist character of God Father. He is a supremo to operate the city. He has twin sons who are obedient to their parents. God Father has an interesting background. Actually he performed as a dancer to entertain people. God Father has a feminine character. He behaves like a female. It is very surprising and interesting to watch him. When he danced in a show in the rural place, he met Sujatha who watched a recorded video of his dance program. She started loving him.

On wedding ceremony, Sujatha entered straight into the marriage hall to declare her love affair. God Father couldn’t control himself and raped her in his private room. This type of forceful seduction produced two sons who are identical. These twin children are named Vijay and Ajay. Here, another surprise is waiting. Vijay played by Upendra has the fixation for his dad. God Father also pampers Vijay for his deep veneration and love for God Father. On the other hand, Ajay is on the opposite pole. He loves his mother. He never accepts Vijay. He tries to terminate Vijay for good. When situation is out of control, God Father appears just like mythological god Shiva to burn everything alive through his third eye. God Father’s role is peculiar but full of adventure and thrills. Movie lovers will enjoy watching God Father.

The suspense is still hovering in the movie. God Father left for heaven after being shot by a revolver. There is nothing clear about the reason of knocking him down on the ground. Ajay is a victim to situation. He suffers from illness due to frustration and failure. He has confessed that he has ill intention to kill God Father. The whole movie is ridden with thrills, adventure, romance, betray and bloodshed melee.

S Sriram is the director who has proved his proficiency in directing movie using his innovative technical craftsmanship. Though he is a director, he is very much experienced to operate the camera for catching wonderful pictures. So he is a good cinematographer. Upendra is always famous for his razor sharp acting. He has played triple roles whereas
Catherine performed the character of mother to Vijay in God Father. Those who have not watched the original Tamil movie can’t understand the hidden secret in this movie. Upendra is the God Father Shiva. He is also Vijay and Ajay. So, how difficult it is to perform different roles in the same movie. However, Upendra has proved that he is a versatile actor. He has learnt classic dances like Bharathanatyam.

Soundaraya Shreyasi’s presence is magnificent in this movie. Her mind blowing smiles and rhythmic walking styles are superb. However, the cameraman, choreographer and other associates have done good jobs. They have put 100 percent effort to make the movie successful. As a supporting character, the role of Ramesh Bhat is to the point and remarkable. His contribution must be honored.

Verdict: God Father will be a favorite movie for those who love their parents. This movie has given a space for young actors and actresses to show their caliber. Sweet songs will attract music lovers to watch this movie. AR Rahman has well taken care of the music composition.

Gowri Puthra Kannada movie review

Gowri Puthra’ has been directed by the famous director named Manju Maskal Matti. His directional expertise should deserve rewards and appreciation. When you watch Gowri Puthra, you can remember those famous celebrities like Ananthnag, Vishnuvardhana and Shashikumar who were very popular during 1980 and 90.

Ganesha played by Akshay is the protagonist in the movie. He is a simple guy with honest ambition. However, Ganesha has been turned down by Ranjitha acted by Nikitha. She didn’t accept his marriage proposal. At the same time Ganesha is also unhappy because of the sad news of elopement of his would-be wife named Vidya. She fled on the day of wedding ceremony. In-between, this guy has met Sheka Nag who tries to reshape his life on hearing the caustic flashback. Ganesha tries to forget everything which seems to be painful to him.

On the other hand, father of Vidya has owned up the responsibility to find the suitable bride for Ganesha. The tragedy continues. When Ganesha has reached Hiriyur to find the lady for wedding, he is surprised to know that that lady has a love affair with an auto driver. He is totally upset. He decides to lead the rest of his life as a bachelor without facing the mishap. Ganesha is an unlucky guy who has lost a number of chances to love someone special. Every time his romantic venture has ended in frustration. The director has applied his imaginative power and artistic sensibility to portray the character of Ganesha.

Abruptly, while staying in that village, he has met Vidya who is in fact in pitiable condition. She conceives and at last she has been taken to local hospital for delivering baby.

When Ganesha takes Vidya to hospital for proper treatment, he finds Ranjitha who is working in the same hospital. The wheel of his luck seems to turn in his favor. In the mean time, the entry of Jayanthi (Manasi) as a police inspector has changed the course of the movie. However, in the long run Ranjitha has surfaced her own faults. She decides to start dating with Ganesha. The story is good. The director has tried his best to punch more romantic flavor in the movie to attract young lovers.

In this movie, Matti has used dubbing methods. Akshay is the famous actor but in this movie he has lost something to smile in a carefree nature. He should learn more by watching few movies of Ananthnag. He must be more jovial in temperament. Nikitha Tukral is fitted to this movie. Her emotional outbursts are matched with the stream of the movie. Ramesh Bhat has done a good job. However, Mansi has failed to perform her job as a police officer. Nagashekhar and Nivedhitha have shown acting talent by performing excellently.

Sowmyasri is the renowned producer and he has financed this movie for completion. He has the full confidence regarding the positive outcome of the upcoming movie.

Music is the powerhouse of this movie. Milind Dharmasena is considered to be one of talented musicians, and composers. He has gifted few marvelous songs and sweet tunes to entertain his admirers.

PL Ravi is the cameraman. He is a trained cinematographer. He operates the camera competently. However, few snapshots are irrelevant to the context. He should have been more careful and attentive clicking shutters of the camera.

Title music is up to the mark. Famous singers have lent voice perfectly to soothe ears of audiophiles. Viewers will be able to get some melodious musical tunes and songs. People will be happy to watch this movie.

Verdict: ‘Gowri Puthra’ is a standard movie. It will win favors of teens. This movie will bring more international accolades to the director for his excellent performance.

Rating :3.25/5

Modhala Minchu kannada movie review

Modhala Minchu is the movie which has been directed by Wesley Brown. For Heaven’s shake! Please stop giving false presentation and fake identification. You can start in this way blaming the director. Wesley is a guy who has taken care of several portfolio as story writer, producer, dialogue creator, cameraman, cinematographer and screenplay writer. However, ultimately, this gentleman is not well acquainted with the move directing. The final outcome of this movie is very pathetic.

In the story, two lovers have to face lot of hardships and troubles due to their abrupt decision and whimsical mindsets to plunge into darkness unknowingly. The story begins at a snail’s pace. In a rural area, a servant played by Doddanna lives. His name is Ravi. He looks innocent and harmless. He has married Mala who lives in the same village. Now, the breakthrough takes place with the coming of Divya played by Supritha. She is a student in medicine. She has a prior engagement with Rakesh who is a businessman. However, a problem starts when she dreams of Ravi. She has met him. On the other hand, Rakesh’s attitude is not preferred by Divya. He is arrogant and boastful. Ravi likes her. Both have fallen in love. Now Rakesh tries to take revenge. In this way, the movie ends up.

This movie will not bring success due to artistic lackluster, poor cinematography, substandard presentation of dialogues, and to top it all abrupt switchover in distorting the flow of the movie. Supritha is beautiful and sexy. However she is not much more to make the movie more presentable. Wesley should learn how to move camera before shooting the movie. Abhi is the debutant in this movie but he has a lack of skill and experience.

Verdict: The overall performance of the director is very bad. The pitiable condition of total team is prominent. Technical portion is not high water mark. This movie will not be popular after hitting the box office.

Adhuri Movie Review – A High Flavorful Romantic Movie to Boost up Young Hearts

Adhuri will entice teenage sweethearts for sweet quips, speedy dialogues and superb presentation of both Radhika in the leading role of Poorna and Sarja acting as Arjun. His affection towards Radhika is strongly felt in every episode. At the same time, the charismatic glow of sweet Radhika will surely win million hearts of young dudes. They are quite impressive in Adhuri.

The director AP has confirmed the introduction of new faces to his fans who will have passion for watching the brilliant actors performing excellently in Adhuri. In this movie, you will find the touch of ultra-light romantic luster. It brings two hearts together for forming an everlasting friendship. The strong romantic flavor has been punched into Adhuri to make it more glamorous and eye-catching.

The story begins in this way. Arjun and Poorna are young and energetic persons who like to swim in the frothy soap suds of dreamy enchantment. Love is so sweet. You need to look back to feel someone whispering just behind your image. Poorna has expressed her gentle love for Arjun. They are agreed to get married prior to the strong decision taken by their parents to drive a wedge between them. However, the wheel of fortune doesn’t always run smoothly on the texture. Arjun didn’t appear in the pre-fixed time to sign the marriage bond paper at the registration office. Poorna waited to see her caustic downfall. In that case, the director has applied her innovative ideas and powerful imagination to showcase the painful separation and hallucination. Poorna decided to marry Tarun who is a software engineer. Romance knows no limitation. It always glows and shines. In spite of marriage, Poorna and Arjun have become bosom friends. Now, viewers will have to make a proper evaluation.

Radhika is always cute. Her attractive smile and razor sharp façade are assets the director has used her talent properly. Sarja is also dashing. However, to some extent, his large nose can be problematic for Poorna to strike him with hot kisses. Let the matter drop alone. They are friends now and their appearance is quite appreciable in this high voltage romantic movie Adhuri.

The screenplay is ok. Though sometimes it seems that there is a slight vacuum in the love scenes, the overall outcome is excellent due to the delivery of meaningful dialogues and unforgettable exchange of smiles to soothe mind of young lovers.

Rating: 9/10

Verdict: Adhuri has the speed, dynamism and smooth flow of friendship. It will give some beautiful moments to young hearts for enjoying the romantic venture.

Crazy Loka kannada movie Review

The movie Crazy Loka reveals the story of a persons ambition for education and society.The story is that Basavaraja Kattimani (V Ravichandran) is awarded a doctorate for doing welfare services to the society by a University. At the day of his award his rival Sadashiva (Srinivasa Prabhu) teases him and will ask him to obtain atleast first year PUC certificate and his rival challenges him. Taking the challenge in mind Basavaraja Kattimani joins the college. The thrill is that his son Abhay (Soorya) is also studying at the same college .More than learning for a PUC certificate Basu tries to teach the humanity of life and non academic things to his younger students.The later lead of the movie is Basu falls in love with Sarala (Daisy Boppana) . The later sessions can be enjoyed by you at theaters near you.
Its of a great shock to the bigscreen viewers, why such a subject was selected by the senior director Kavitha Lankesh. V ravichandra the love master of Kannada cinema has failed in selecting such a movie to reach the audience. In simple sense we can easily say the movie will surely affect the romantic image of V Ravichandra. The screen play of the movie seemed to be lagging .
While telling about the performance of v Ravichandra it was just ok. Daisy Boppana has an average role in this film. Avinash and Bharathi Vishnuvardhana are lively. Harshika and Soorya as young pair are tolerable.
The technical side of the movie includes a good cameraman and music director (AC Mahendran, Manikanth Khadri).

Verdict :The movie review in one sentence is not recommended for watching

Rating : 2/5

Rana Kannada movie review

A movie packed and loaded with action which conveys a message to youth “how their life become worst when we practice a criminal offense .The story is that FOUR YOUTH (Soori, Manja, Madha and Siddha ) from a village comes to the city and enter in to a brutal act of murdering a strong rowdy Dhum kumar.Thus they earns a good name and start loving four different girls.The later lead of the movie is fully covered with romance and thrills.The remaining part of the story reveals how that brutal act which they had done earlier affect their future life and how they face all this troubles .The rest you can enjoy at the big screen.
While analyzing the movie, from the beginning itself we will feel that the story holds a repeated theme of many movies the big screen had projected in its past days.Mr. Srinivasamurthy who is new to the industry as a director had gone wrong in his selection about the script of his very first movie . It is of no doubt that the movie will drain the image of the director and Pankaj Narayan who is the hero of the movie.
In a film with full of action how best the actors chase, fight and use their tricks only matters. The action sequences of the movie is substandard. Pankaj Narayan performance was ok but his choice of choosing this movie was a bad decision. The performance of the heroines seemed average. Sonia Gowda as blind heroine, Supritha as mad girl, Spoorthi as disenchanted wife are tolerable. The performances of Shobaraj and Ambarish comes under an ok category
Only one song in the movie seemed to be ok but the others are not up to the mark and there is nothing good to say about the editing of the movie.
Rating :2/5

Verdict :Below Average

Bhagirathi kannada movie Review

Movie Bhagrathi reveals historic past and superstitious beliefs that existed in the past. Director Dr Baraguru Ramachandrappa tries to give his audience a story of sacrifice through Bhagrathi.The story is that Bhagirathi (Bhavana) and Mahadevaraya (Kishore) starts loving each other and marry after a few years.The story rise with the issue of a lake which has no water . Mahadevaraya is a soldier in the army of a king and on his absence the priest of the village tells that a daughter in law from the village head family should sacrifice her life inorder to make the lake productive .By hearing this words from the mouth of the village priest the two daughter in laws of the village head family will get upset .The role of two daughter in laws are played by Bhagirathi (Bhavana) and Mallavva (Thara) .At the time for the ceremony of sacrifice the village priest announces the name of Bhagirathi (Bhavana) and she happily sacrifice her life for the village and after a few moments her husband Mahadevaraya (Kishore) also dies at the same place in memory of his ever loving wife.
This story could have been effective if it was in a TV serial but such type of story in todays bigscreen will not withstand because such type of superstitious stories can’t satisfy the present audience even childrens.The director of the movie had worked for the movie very well. This can be understood easily from the screenplay itself.The three well written song by the director also makes the movie a little bit interesting but he failed in selecting a story according to the current trend.
The charecters seemed to be unfit for Kishore and Bhavana .They tried to perform better but their looks faded their performance.The music by Manohar is also good.The review of the movie in one scentence is that one can watch the movie if he has some interest in historic past.

Rating :1.75/5

Verdict : Disappointing . Not a commercial one..

Jaanu kannada movie review

Jaanu,the immense love of one to the other as the name suggest the movie jaanu is all about the love bond between a father,his daughter and her love.The story starts like this Rukmini (Deepa Sannidhi) just for a joy comes to mysore to see mysore dasara without informing her parents who lives at Belgaum .But after coming to mysore she realizes that it was not the season for mysore dasra and she will lose all her money at mysore.The real story begins at a restaurant owned by Siddarth and Ramaiah (Yash and Rangayana Raghu).Rukmini because of her hunger eats food for Rs 800/ and tells the bearer that she don’t have money to pay Siddarth become baffled when Rukmini ask him to give place to stay for the night.

The movie comes under a category of watchable even though the movie repeats the same dilemma like other movies which had become so popular earlier .The journey of the hero and heroine seemed to create a lag in the movie in between .The only thing that is different in the movie is that the climax part which seemed to be very interesting and this portion of the movie gives the viewers a fresh experience.Ed iting of the movie only comes to an average level because at the middle part of the movie there comes continuous fights and songs which made the viewers bored. The over all view about the movie is that Director Preetham Gubbi failed to give a different experience to the viewers .
The performances of the hero and heroine seemed to be pretty good in their actions,expressions and looks.The camera work by Krishna added up a cooling experience to the viewers .The other works like choreography,cinematography,music all seemed to be of an average category.

Rating :2.75

Verdict:- Watchable , Good for one time watch
