Sharwanand is turning producer with the movie Ko Antey Koti, which has hit the marquee today. Directed by Anish Kuruvilla, the film has an interesting storyline and wonderful performances by the lead actors. But it might fail to impress you due to its slow and vague narration.
Ko Antey Koti is a romantic action movie and Sri Hari and Sharwanand's wonderful performances are its main attractions. Shakti Kanth's music, Erukulla Rakesh and Naveen Yadav's cinematography and interesting script are some of its other highlights. But the director's failure in executing the concept on screens is the main drawback of the film.
The movie revolves around a mega robbery and the twists and suspense elements are good to watch. But the director has complicated the things in the first half with unclear and dragging narration. The film continues with this lack of clarity in the second half without providing any thrill and excitement to the viewers. But the climax clears the air.
Maya Master (Sri Hari) is a small time robber and he teams up with Vamsi (Sharwnand) and two others for his last and ambitious heist, before he retires from the trade. With his team, he proves successful in his attempt, but a member back stabs the rest. What happens next will form the crux of the story.
As a robber, Sri Hari has done brilliant job. He is perfect star for the role, which has different shades. Sharwanand's role has also got equal scope and as usual, he has delivered a mature performance. His chemistry with Priya Anand is also a highlight of the movie. Others have also done justice to their respective roles.
Shakti Kanth's music is the main highlight in technical front. Erukulla Rakesh and Naveen Yadav have tried to bring realistic feeling for the film with their cinematography. The action and dance sequences have been well choreographed. The dialogues and editing works are also commendable.
Overall, Ko Antey Koti is an average fare, which boasts of wonderful acting by Sri Hari and Sharwanand. If you are a fan of any of these actors, don't miss to watch them in action.
