Too Much Of Twists
Seems like Rakshith Shetty is influenced from Superstar Upendra, which is clearly seen in his movie making style. Lot of twists and confusions will continues till the end.
This has also been told in many parts of the movie. Understanding Ulidavaru Kandanthe is mainly dependent on one's individual perspective.
Still It Is Not Concluded
Though the movie completes its running time, nothing will be concluded in the end. The decision is given to the audience.
Rakshith Shetty, who plays the role of a local goon and a gangster as Richard Antony aka Richi, is impressive. He is rocking in his style of dialogue delivery and Mangalore Kannada accent.
Debutant Rishab Shetty, who plays Richi's childhood friend role as Raghu, has done wonderful job.
Kishore is an actor, who gets into the skin of the character. His role as Munna aka Pranayaraja and Mandya Kannada accent amidst Mangalore Kannada is impressive.
Though Sheetal Shetty is a news reader by profession, she seems to be influenced by our Sandalwood Queen Ramya in acting. Her style, body language and facial expressions will surely reminds us of Ramya.
Yesteryear actress Tara is an artist, who just rocks in every role she gets. Her role as Raghu's mother is heart touching.
Surprisingly, Yagna Shetty's role as Sharada is given least importance in the script. She plays love interest for Munna in the movie.
Dinesh Mangalore, Achyuth Kumar and others are seen in the supporting roles of the film, who are commendable in their roles.
Music by Ajaneesh Loknath has beefed up in Ulidavaru Kandanthe's excellent presentation. As people have already enjoyed the songs, there is still the thrilling background score in the film, which will be humming in your mind.
Karam Chawla's work in the cinematography should be appreciated. Ulidavaru Kandanthe will take you to a completely different world, where the credit goes to Chawla.
Sandalwood has got another promising director. Rakshith Shetty, who was already successful as an actor, is the winner as a director with Ulidavaru Kandanthe.
Usage of Mangalore Kannada in the script could be the main drawback for the film as it will not be appealing to the Urban audience. Too much twists in the story is little confusing which also distracts audience from the movie.
Ulidavaru Kandanthe (as seen by others) will depends on how we see the movie (subjective opinion), but it is not just one time watchable. The suspense and confusions will continues till the end. The movie is biggest feast for Kannada audience for Ugadi festival.
