First of all the movie Gokula has interesting storyline and Prakash"s effective narration engages the mind of audience till the very end of the movie. The other plus points of the movie are Sreenivasa Murthy, Sumithra, Vijayaraghavendra, Pooja Gandhi and Yash"s excellent performances, Prakash's stylish presentation, good technical work, Mano Murthy"s music and Sathya Hegde"s cinematography.
Gokula revolves around four orphans (Raja) Vijayaraghavendra, (Kannappa) Yash, (Shankar) Raghuraj and (Guru) Pawan. These friends lead their life by stealing and cheating people. Once they decide to cheat an old couple (Sreenivasa Murthy, Sumithra). But the couple shows them love and affection, which transforms them into human being. What happens next will form the climax.
After the IPC Section 300, Vijayaraghavendra once again rocks the show. Sreenivasa Murthy, Sumithra"s excellent performance makes the audiences tighten their seat belt. Moggina Manasu fame Yash has again proved his elementary guts. Raghuraj, Pawan, Pooja Gandhi as Leela, Kote Prabhakar as landlord, Nakshatra as his daughter Mahalakshmi and Ravi Kale as don Kale have done justice to their roles.
Mano Murthy's music is another highlight of the movie. The songs like 'Araamaagi Idhdhe Naanu...', 'Neene Helu...' and 'Majaa Maadokke...' will haunt the minds of audience even after they are out of the theatre. Sathya Hegde's camera work is added complement to it. Even dialogues and editing works are also good.
Director Prakash has proved once again that he is a classic technician by taking the film to a great emotional heights without sacrificing the commercial elements. The movie Gokula should be watched at least once.
