Rambo is Sharan's 100th movie and it is also his first movie as a hero. Taking inspiration from the success of Komal's Govindaya Namaha, the comedian came forward to produce the movie and has almost succeeded in his attempt, as the movie is nothing but a fun affair.
Rambo is a comedy-thriller and a good entertainer. With a bunch of matured performers, the actor has tried his best to keep the fun element all through the film. However, the combination of Sharan-Tabla Nani and oneliners are the only aspects that make you sit till the end.
Krishna Murthy alias Kitty (Sharan), a car broker, has a cunning way of sealing the deal with the help of his uncle-friend Belt Kumar aka Prem Kumar. They sell any car for a price offered by the customer. A pig plays a major role in accomplishing their goals. How? It is better to watch it on-screen.
Kitty's mother, played by Umashri, is fed up of finding a good alliance for him as he spoils the party every time they are at bride's place. His strange way of trying to know the true colour of girls whom he meet at their house, puts him in trouble.
However, his life changes after Revathi (Madhuri) comes to his life; and when he decides to bid goodbye to his profession for her, the story takes a twist. Sharan discovers a dead body in his car and cracking the mystery forms the remaining part of the story.
The story of Rambo is entertaining but boring in parts. The movie has an likeable beginning and has good one-liners. However, the momentum goes for a toss in the later part of the first half. In the second half, the story picks up well with comedy and thrill all over it.
Sharan has done a remarkable job. The actor is no different comparatively with his 99 films, but the length of his role makes the difference to the film. He is backed by his co-star Tabala Nani, whose body language and dialogue delivery win the applause of the audience. Rangayana Raghu is good in limited role and others like Sadhu Kokila, Umashri are okay in their limited role.
Technically, Arjun Janya's songs had always created sensation before the release, Krishna's cinematography is good. Last but not least, Ganesh has done a voice over as a narrator.
Verdict: Rambo is entertaining.
