Starcast - Jaggesh, Komal, Gurlin Chopra and others
Jaggesh and Komal are brilliant actors no doubt. They can set screen on fire individually, but what happens when both these artists are working in a film that too in special roles. To get an answer to this question kindly watch the film Manmatha in which both these two artists are working together. For once, Jaggesh has shown that he can be accommodative to any other equally talented artist in Manmatha. He has allowed Komal to go overboard in some sequences and enjoys it.
Manmatha has Jaggesh in two roles one as an extremely passionate lover and other as a physically challenged hunch back person. Komal acts in the role of a marriage broker who tries to get a suitable girl for hunchback Jaggesh.
Director Rajesh Fernandes has tried to be faithful to the Malayalam original film, but in the Kannada remake version Jaggesh has retained some of his trade mark mannerisms. His performance in both the roles is a real treat. And Komal matches his brother in talents and proves that he needs more encouragement by the film industry. Gurlin Chopra has also done her best. But for the music of the film, the technical department has also ably supported the director.
Manmatha is a good film for the entire family.
