Although director Nagachandra has claimed that film Muniya has a fresh story, it is nothing but old wine in a new bottle. The movie has got all sentiments, action and comedy, but Kannada audiences have seen many such movies earlier.
Movie Muniya is an action-cum-love story. Fight sequences are the highlights of the movie. It is all about an innocent village youth, who enters underworld in order to save his lady love. It is nothing but another Duniya with reformations.
The first half of the movie deals with item song, fightings and little bit of comedy, which is a test for the audience's patience. Songs seem to start unnecessarily. The second half shows the hero's flash back and his love story. Nagachandra shows his lack of imagination in this part.
Muniya, an innocent youth, is an orphan. He works with a rich village landlord. Landlord's daughter Gowri falls in love with him, but he does not mind her and behaves like an honest servant. She forces him to take her to the city. The rest of the story is formed by the incidents that occur in city.
Director Nagachandra should understand that audiences will not like only sentiments, action and comedy; they expect much more than those things. Moreover, It seems that he has ignored many sequences, which he could have improved even better to beautify the move.
Mayur Patel, who is struggling for a break, has put lot of labour to deliver excellent performance. Especially, his involvement in the fight sequences is really amazing. But village youth's getup will not suit him. Time and again, he is making the same mistake. He should select a role which is suitable to his personality.
Although actress Sahithya impresses audience in her debut movie, she is not suitable for the role of a village girl. Actress Sheetal has very little scope to perform, she fills the glamour slot. Rangayana Raghu has delivered his usual performance.
Abhiman Roy's music is good. The song 'Dasi Madiko Enna..' rocks the audiences.
Action lovers, don't miss Mayur Patel's fight sequences!
