Director Shashank had done magic with his second movie Moggina Manasu, which has won five filmfare awards. Now, the director is back with his third venture Krishnan Love Story, which is much better than it and is a good fusion of rich technical values, interesting script and wonderful performance. The director has once again proved that he is one among the successful directors of Sandalwood.
Krishnan Love Story is a beautiful romantic story. The highlights of the film are Ajay-Radhika"s performance, Shashank"s script and narration, V Shridhar"s music, S Chandru"s picturisation, Mohan Kere"s art, Prasanna"s dialogues and Prakash"s editing. The rich production values of the film make it a good watch.
Krishnan Love Story is a pristine love story. The movie is based on real love story of Shashank"s friend Harsha and it deals with yearning and intensity of true love. There is nothing exceptional in the first half, but after Narendra"s accidental death, the story takes a new twist in the second half, which is very sentimental and touches the emotional chord of viewers" heart. With amazing script and fast paced narration, Shashank has made it very interesting.
Geetha (Radhika Pandit) is a practical-minded middle-class girl. She meets Krishna (Ajay Rao), who falls in love with her at first sight. Although she truly loves him, her poverty suppresses her ambitions and forces her to elope with Narendra (Pradeep), who is a rich hotelier. But things take adverse effect on life when he dies in an accident. What happens next will form the brilliant climax of the film.
Compared to his previous movies, Ajay Rao has given a reasonable performance in the film. But Radhika Pandit outshines him in acting. She has improved a lot when compared to her acting in Moggina Manasu. Her dialogue delivery, expressions and body language appear far better than Ajay. However, their performance in the second half impresses the viewers. Harsha, Pradeep, Sharan, Achyuth Kumar, Chandru and Umashri have also done a wonderful job.
V Shirdhar"s music has surely added to the beauty of the film. He has composed six good numbers for the film and songs like 'Hrudayave Bayasidhe Ninnane…", 'Mosa Maadalendu Bandeya…" and 'Thumbaa Aaraamaagidhe...' are very melodious. S Chandru"s camera work has definitely done the magic in bringing the essential feeling for the film. Meanwhile, it should not be forgotten to say that Prasanna"s dialogue and Prakash"s editing are also plus points of the film.
Although the story is concentrated on Radhika Pandit"s role, the director has given more scope to Ajay"s role and the reason behind this seems that he has studied story according to his friend Harsha"s point of view. But this does not stop him to make Krishnan Love Story interesting. It is quite fresh and engaging and would definitely impress the audience especially youths. Don't miss it.
