    Critics Review

    • Bellary minelords had recently created a new wave in socio-political system of Karnataka by opposing the CM with their money power. Although several forms of media had tried to throw the light on their corruption, it was not up to the mark. Now director Jacob Verghese has best depicted it onscreen through his movie Prithvi. Hats off to Puneet Rajkumar to joining his hands with director in bringing on such a serious issue on screen.

      Besides the direction, Jacob Verghese has also penned story and screenplay for the movie Prithvi. It action-cum-romantic story, which is the second hero of the movie. Even though it deals with serious subject, the director has included almost all the commercial elements. The highlights of the movie are Puneet Rajkumar's energetic performance, Manikanth Kadri's music, Manju Mandovi's dialogues, stunts and wonderful narration.

      The story revolves around a DC's attempt to stop the corruption in Bellary district and provide infrastructure to the people. The director has managed to bring out a clear picture of corruption of minelords in Bellary without referring to any real person or event. The movie also brings out the Andhra-Karnataka border issue. With a strong storyline, director deals with satirical picture of social, political and bureaucratic system in this area. The movie starts with a flash back story and the first half is all about Prithvi getting married to Priya and joining the civil service. The second half depictes how he takes action against the mine lords.
