Pawan Kumar, who is popular for dabbing in more than one genre and working his magic into it has come up this time with a mystery, with the current movie, U-Turn.
After making rounds in many film festivals and bagging the prestigious National Award for Best Film, Thithi is released for public viewers yesterday. The movie with all its aura of art film could be misleading, since the film is weaved with humour largely, with certain values of life and its resolute nature.
Loosely based on the Tamil movie Ivan Veremathiri (He is Different) by the same director, Chakravyuha is an out and out Puneeth Rajkumar movie with not much left to your imagination. The Ambareesh movie of the same name of the yesteryears has nothing to do with this action flick.
When Pavan Wadayar takes the helm of a movie, people sit up and pay attention because they are quite sure that the movie will be something special, either in its storyline or treatment.
An adaptation of the celebrated writer Poornahandra Tejaswi’s novella of the same name, Kiragoorina Gayyalingalu could have reduced into a clichéd movie, if it were handled by a lesser director than D Suman Kittur. Instead of just shifting the medium from print to visuals, Kittu has done the job with more creativity and awareness of the medium he is equipped with, without losing the essence and core of Tejaswi’s words and theme.
Tyson, the Kannada movie which promised to be a non-stop action packed film, delivered what it promised with inconsequential fight scenes and deliberate action sequences thrown it just for the effect. The continuous dishum dishum gets under your nerve at times, and you wonder what the point of all this is.
When you are instinctively a good director, even a hiatus of 10 years will not tarnish your talent, and Sunil Kumar Desai proves this point vehemently with his latest outing ‘Re’.
A small budget movie in Telugu took Tollywood by storm with its innovative presentation of a regular story, and the impressive acting skills of all the actors in the movie. Uyyala Jumpala is the inspiration of the Kannada movie Krishna Rukku, which falls in the genre of romantic comedy, with stress on the word comedy.
An entertainer all the way till the end on a big canvas, Sivalinga is not anything out of the customary movie with all the ingredients in place. And the big names help it in a big way as well. Wonder whether the film makers are mistaking the audience’s taste for such old wine, so that they don’t look around for new wine.
When there are no claims, you have no qualms over the quality of a movie, its clichéd storyline or the herogiri shown the umpteenth time. Viraat is one of those, which is not outstanding by any standard, at any criteria. But if you are a Darshan fan, who loves to watch his style quotient and action statements, you will love this movie as well.
There are love stories, and then there are love stories. The ones we forget because of its sheer clichéd take are dime a dozen and we don’t really bother about it. But then, there are another kind, which lingers in your mind for a long time and ponder over the details for a longer time.
You have to appreciate the nerve of a young and debutant director when he decides to take up a very touchy and socially distasteful theme for his first film, and sticks to it with much diligence and following the story with honesty and integrity.
