Analysis: An outright family drama. It is a commercial venture made to appease a wide lot. It stresses on the significance of a family. It is quite engrossing and the comic-timing, dialogues screenplay makes it a blockbuster. It seems that more time and money was spent on the upscale sets and properties to give the movie a posh look. The film does not have unnecessary stunt scenes, forced dialogues or interposed scenes. An uncomplicated story with the perfect amount of masalacombined in style is bound to mesmerize the audience. The clean transition of the story from sentimental to comedy to seriousness, keeps the viewers glued to the screen. The successful completion of the mission is the kernel. Sudhakar S raj makes it a visual treat with some remarkable visuals.
Star performance: It seemed that it was just made for Sudeep. He gives a touch of his own. He is the one-man-army for the show. His character represents myriad shades of humour,arrogance, emotion, all at the same time. This is quite tough, but he makes it appear effortless. Madhoo makes a great comeback with a role which offers her plenty to deliver. Rachita has another performance to add to her bag. Haripriya is good in her role too. The others- Prakash Raj, Sharath, Devaraj, Avinash, all of them add elegance to the show.
1) A lightweight movie which sets your mood right.
2) The action-packed sequences were directed to the point, with its share of dialogues that ensure whistlers.
3) Babbar Sher makes sure his song is the best pick of the movie.
4) The cinematography calls for appreciation.
What’s not there?
1) It is the remake of the Telegu Attarintiki Daredi, and the Director doesn’t deviate much from the original script.
2) The second half is protracted and adventitious scenes hits the stride of the movie.
Verdict: All the Sudeep fans out there do not miss it!! For others, a good movie for the weekend. Sudeep presents a delightful treat for his fans.
