Director Sreedhar's Kannada movie Karanji is a music oriented film, which is meant for the youths. He has scripted the film on a thin story line. He has chosen five newcomers along with actor Vijayaraghavendra. Karanji is produced by Suresh NM.
Karanji deals with the journey of a Kannada music band. Although the movie has predictable storyline, it engages the audience. The narration and dialogues are very simple. The film appeals to the youth audience in a big way. But lack of comedy and action sequences make it a weak one for other categories of audience.
Vijayaraghavendra's performance, Veera Samarth's music and Guruprashanth Rai's cinematography are the main attractions of the movie Karanji. It's slow pace and weak characterisations are the biggest drawbacks of the film. There are many inadequate sequences, which do not convey anything and hinder the movement of the story.
