Director Shashikanth has finally come out with his debut directorial venture IPC Section 300, which features Devraj, Vijayaraghavendra and Priyanka in the leads. It could have been a wonderful thriller in Kannada, if he had chopped off unwanted songs and comic sequences.
The director himself has written story, screenplay and dialogues for the movie IPC Section 300. His choice of the subject is unique and fresh, which was lacking in Kannada film for quite some time. The narration of the story is fast paced and the Shashi has got good grip over it. But several sequences related to Vijay"s love interest bore the audiences.
Mallikarjun (Devraj), who is an architect, shoots his wife Sheela in broad day light after he comes to know about her alleged relationship with a police officer (Srujan Lokesh). Then he surrenders to the police. But he refuses to take the help of a defense lawyer. How prosecutor Vijay, (Vijay Raghavendra) unravels murder mystery will form the rest of the story.
Devaraj has delivered brilliant performance. Vijayaraghavendra, who has shed lot of weight for the movie, looks wonderful in advocate's get up. Priyanka does not have much scope except adding spice to songs and comedy in the film. Bullet Prakash's comedy is good but its unnecessary use spoils the beauty of the movie. Suman Ranganath, Srujan and Yethiraj have done justice to their roles.
Krupakar's background music is another highlight of the movie and it helps the movie to touch the emotional chord.
Although a few songs and comic sequences drive away the interest of the audiences, IPC Section 300 has got enough number of enjoyable moment. Don't miss the movie.
