Devadas started his career as a music arranger in Kannada film industry. After serving for many years, he took up composing music. Now he is turning director through the movie Bandhe Barthale. Besides direction, he has also taken responsibility of writing the story, lyrics, dialogues and composing music.
Movie Bandhe Barthale deals with one of the legal cases. It aims to pass the message to the society regarding the mistakes of teenager. This movie has some social relevance. The 14 to 17 age group oscillation of mind is shown in this film with a thorough study. The legal remedy is dealt in a touching way in the movie.
Bandhe Barthale features debutant actor Soorya and Ambari fame Supritha. Director Devadas has chosen a shallow storyline, which has already been brought out on-screen many times before. The story of the movie is too predictive. The characterization seems to be weird. The director, who hints a message throughout the movie, has failed to bring it clearly in the climax scene. The message seems to be very contradictory.
Ganesh is slum dweller and he falls in love a rich girl called Rekha. When Rekha's rich father Lakshmipathy knows about the affair, they try to elope and get married, but they are caught by the police. What happens in the court and how Ganesh gets back his love will form the core of the movie.
Director Devadas, who has taken too many responsibility, has ignored the importance of visual medium. He has composed six songs, which seem to be mediocre songs. He seems to have lifted the tunes from Hindi and Telugu. He has also failed to tap out good performance from many artists in the movie.
Debutant actor Soorya appears superb in the graphically supported fight sequences. Ambari fame actress Supritha appears dull in many sequences and she needs to improve a lot to prove her mettle. Santhosh, Shobha Raj, Padmavasanthi and Killer Venkatesh have done justice to their roles.
Bandhe Barthaale can be ignored!
