The much-expected Kicha Sudeep starrer movie Mr. Theertha (Mr. Teertha) has finally hit the screens. Director Sadhu Kokila has made the audience wait for long, but it is worth that he has done an enjoyable cocktail film.
Mr. Theertha is a remake of Mohanlal and Thilakan starrer Malayalam movie Spadikam and Sadhu Kokila has best adapted it to Kannada. He has changed few aspects from the original to suit the taste of the local audience. For example Malayalam film revolves around Christian family story, whereas Kannada deals with a disciplined Brahmin family and comedy scenes were not there in original, but Sadhu has include comedy as a sub plot here.
The film is an action-packed film, but the director has managed to mix it with commercial elements like comedy, sentiment and love to make it good watch. It deals with the strained relationship between a father and his son. The highlights of the movie are Sudeep and Ananth Nag’s performance, Sadhu Kokila’s crispy narration, Gurukiran’s music and confrontation scenes between Theertha and his father. The movie has a good message to all fathers too.
