Vijay-Jyothika starrer Khushi was a hit movie in Tamil and director SJ Suraiah remade it in Telugu, which was a blockbuster film. Later, it was remade in Hindi, but it was flop at the Box Office. Now, Mussanje Maathu fame director Mahesh has remade it as Eno Onthara (Yeno Onthara) in Kannada. He has completely stayed loyal to the original. And almost ten years have passed after these three movies, the director has not done single update to his script in Kannada.
Eno Onthara is a romantic-cum-sentimental film, which has all the commercial elements. Golden star Ganesh's performance is the main highlight of the movie. V Harikrishna's music, Sharan's comedy and PKH Doss' cinematography are the other highlights. Lack of freshness in the script and lengthy narration are two main weaknesses of the film.
The movie is a regular love story, where the hero and heroine separate over ego clashes and find themselves unable to express their hearts to each other. The movie is a right mixture of love, sentiment, comedy and confusion. The first half of the film is quite interesting, but lengthy climax in the second half tests the patience of the audience. But Ganesh and Priyamani have managed to make it watchable with their brilliant acting.
