Edegarike is based on the book from the same name
written by journalist and writer Agni Shreedhar. The story is not
something new and we have seen similar kind of stories every now
and then. But the characters in the movie make audience to watch
the film, as they look realistic and not filmy.
The film tells the story of serial killer Sona (Aditya), who is working
under Dubai don Bhai. The former is a sharp shooter and Thukaram
Shetty (Achyuth Kumar) is his instructor. He falls in love with
Rashmi (Akansha) and as expected, he wants to quit the underworld
to lead a peaceful life with his girlfriend.
Now, his boss is unhappy with Sona and gives contract to
Muthappa Rai (Dharma) to kill Sona. Rai assigns this job to
Sreedhar (Atul Kulkarni). However, Sreedhar and
Sona are in good terms and and they discuss their past lives. But
the former has no option than getting rid of Sona. Will he kill
him? Watch the movie to know the entire story.
The story of the film is interesting and gives an insight to the
lives of many people, who were involved in underworld activities.
Sumana Kittur's narration is brilliant and she puts her sincere
effort to bring realistic appeal through her characters. However,
the film is boring at parts. Unlike Aadinagalu, the
screenplay loses its grip at parts.
Aditya, like in Deadly Soma, has done an excellent job.
He gives life to the character of Sona. Atul Kulkarni justifies his
role with ease and Akansha's acting is good. Others like Achyuth
Kumar, Srujan Lokesh, Dharma, Sharat Lohitashva, Guru Dutt, and
others have done a clean job.
Sadhu Kokila's background score is amazing and the track is also
brilliant. Rest other departments are okay.
Verdict: Edegarike entertains all sections of audience.
