Finally at end of the year, here comes a Kannada movie for the people those who are fed up with the same love stories, rowdyism movies and remakes. Journalist-turned-screenplay writer Agni Shridhar, who has earlier written stories for two films based on real life rowdy elements, has now taken a diversion from the general trend and penned a brand new story for the film Kallara Santhe (Kallara Sante).
The movie Kallara Santhe is a love story with the backdrop story of Vidhana Soudha. It is a sharp satire on corruption in public life. The highlighters of the movie are Yash's performance, Agni Shridhar's story and dialogues, V Manohar's music. The movie has comic scenes too.
Director Sumana Kittur has given a comical twist to the political satire. The movie highlights the truth about the existing politics and police. She has used the hero as a sharp tool (narrator) to criticise lots of things that are happening in present world. She has blended the serious subject with humour that makes the movie an entertaining watch.
Yash has played a gold medalist, who goes through at least six different professions before destiny decides to take him in a totally new direction. The first half of the movie deals with the romance of youth Somu and his struggle for existence. The second half exposes the nexus between politicians and their chamchas, which seems little bit dragging.
Somu (Yash) is a disciplined youth with a post graduation in Kannada. He falls in love with Roopa (Haripriya). To lead an honest life, he works as a lecturer, reporter, auto driver, canteen owner. And finally he becomes a thief. When he is caught by the police, he threatens to jump from the building and end his life. He puts six demands before CM (Rangayan Raghu) to get down from the building. What are his demands? And will CM fulfill them? These things will form the climax of the movie.
As a determined youth Somu, Yash has delivered excellent performance. He suits his role very much. Even Haripriya acted well as his lover. Moreover, their on-screen chemistry is really good. As usual, Rangayan Raghu, Kishor, Shobharaj, Sudha Belavadi have done justice to their respective roles.
V Manohar's music is another highlight of the movie. Especially, his background score is very refreshing. A couple of songs impress the audiences. Agni Shridhar's dialogues rock the viewers. Sundarnath Suvarna's camera work is also good.
Director Sumana Kittur's movie Kallara Santhe is a good experimental show with a few loop wholes. Please do not miss the show.
