Youngsters enjoyed the presentation and dialogues in the trailer and it is through them, the video-clip spread on cell phones and social networking sites. After creating so much of hype, Simple Aagi Ondh Love Story finally hit the screens today (March 8). The film directed by Suni was planned with a budget of Rs 30 lakhs but ended up with the film made of Rs 1.50 crore! However, let us see whether it has lived up to the expectations of the audience.
The story of Simple Aagi Ondh Love Story is all about a boy Sukesh (Rakshith Shetty), who meets an unknown girl and falls for her. Their meeting turns a platform for them to open up on their past love stories. But the difference in the story is that their present characters become a part of their flashbacks and they will be shown as a couple.
In between, the story takes us to the present and their growing friendship. As expected, they start liking each other but when the moment comes for Sukesh to express his love, the story takes a twist and we are told that the girl is who is suffering from short-term memory loss. In the climax, there are a few turns, which cannot be missed. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
The movie is packed with brilliant one-liners and the audience enjoy every bit of it. Director Suni himself has penned the dialogues, which was the highlight in the trailer too. The narration of the film is fresh and interesting. However, as the story progresses, the screenplay appears to be lost and the only face saver of the movie is dialogues!
The story is not engaging after some time and people will soon realises that there is nothing other than dialogues. However, the surprises in the climax are praise worthy. Performance wise, Rakshith Shetty and Shweta Srivatsava have done brilliant job. The director has extracted best out from the lead stars.
Technically, BJ Bharath's music is good and two songs are excellent. Cinematography by Manohar Joshi could not have been better as he has done a great job. Last but not least, newcomer Suni's fresh attempt has to be praised. Had he worked more on the story, the product could have been a lot better.
Verdict: Watch it for dialogues and performances of the lead stars.
