Actor Harish Raj has proved his mettle by acting in many teleserials and in Girish Kasaravalli award winning movies like Dweepa and Thaayi Saheba. Besides playing full length actor's role, Harish has now taken another challenge of directing the movie Kalakar. He has penned dialogues for the movie.
Debut director Harish seems to be another Ramesh Aravind in selecting technical team in acting, songs and choreography. Although the movie has small lope wholes here and there, Harish seems to have managed well everything in an interesting way. The first half of the movie has a very slow pace and bores the audience, but the second half makes the audience sit tightly with its interesting twists and turns.
The movie seems to be an inspiration of Bollywood movie Fashion. Like Fashion, Kalakar also deals with a youngster, who sets out to become an actor and faces many troubles on his way to his goal. The movie Kalakar gives an authentic picture of the ecstasy and frustrations of the film industry also.
