S Narayan's brother director S Govind had directed challenging star Darshan starrer movie Bhopati earlier. He had tried to show him with a new image, but the movie turned out to be an utter plop. Now he has been tried his luck with Ravichandran's brother Balaji, who is known for his Aham Brahmasmi. Ballaji has already failed to create a hero image for himself in his two movies.
Rajkumari is a triangle love story. The movie is a family entertainer, which seems to be a remake of Ajith-Meena starrer Tamil movie Ananda Poongaatre. The director has made an honest effort to copy it in Kannada. Almost all main events are mere copy of Tamil movie.
Kumari (Kanika) stays in a vathara with her son. Her neighbours mistake her to be a widow. Raj (Balaji) is in love with her for four years. Meanwhile Babli (Nikitha) falls in love with him. Later it is revealed that Kumari is single daughter of a village leader. Who marries Balaji will form the rest of the story.
Director S Govind has not shown his creativity at least he could have tried to maintain interest that is in the original movie. Second thing that hurts the audiences about the movie is Balaji's artificial and emotionless acting. If Balaji, who has already failed to open an account at the Box Office, wants to sustain in the field and create an audience community, he needs to change a lot. He needs to improve his acting skills.
Ravichandran has played a pivotal role as a music teacher. Although the audiences whistle as he appears on the screen, he fails to retain the same interest and craze through out.
The movie has three heroines and the major role is played by Kanika, who has performed well as village leader's daughter. Nikitha has nothing much to do and she fills only glamour slot. Rumanithu Chowdhary, who appears in a song sequence, has played music teacher's wife.
Though the comedy slot filled by Rangayana Raghu, Bullet Prakash seems interesting, but they exceed the limit. Other two Srinivasa Murthy, Avinash have done their best. Even poplar musician Harikrishna's music has failed to impress the audience.
However it can be said that the movie is an average and can be watched once and enjoyed.
