Like his earlier films, the qualities that you see in his heroes
- like care-free attitude with the ability to mouth wonderful
one-liners, will be seen in this film too. Bhatru, this time, has
used the Mandya dialect and Yash has done complete justice to his
Venkatesha (Yash) and Sathisha (Neenasam Sathish) are pranksters
and poor in studies. The former accompanied by the latter leaves
Mandya in order to win the heart of Nandini (Radhika
Pandit), who studies in a college in Hassan. Prior to that a
puppeteer and wanderer played by Ambareesh foresees their future
and tells them that their lives will change once and for
However, Yash's leading girl is the daughter of underworld don
and there is a dispute to be settled between her father and his

The first 45 minutes in Drama is full of fun but the
next 10-12 minutes is bit boring. Yogaraj Bhat takes too much of

enjoyable one-liners are guaranteed. We can see

interval. The second half is full of twists and turns.
Yash has come out with his best performance till date. Hats off
to him for living the character. He speaks the Mandya dialect with

He is backed with Neenasam Sathish, who has come out with flying

character of psychic principal stands out of all. The frustration
of a man without his wife has been brilliantly enacted by him.
Ambareesh, in the role of sutradar, leaves good impression.
Yogaraj Bhat's technical team comprising of music director V
Harikrishna and cinematographer Krishna have lived up to his
expectations. However, the drawback of the film is the screenplay,
as it loses grip in parts. However, his one-liners make up for
Verdict: You get what you expect from Yogaraj Bhat films. Hilarious one-liners, romantic songs and a little bit of philosophy. Last but not least, there is a message in the film.
