Rocky is a triangular love story with good action, music and excellent acting from the lead pair. This is the second film of director Nagendra Urs and Yash, whose earlier film was Moggina Manasu which was female oriented with four heroines.
Rocky (Yash) is the unspoilt and studious son of busy parents, the top rank holder in college. But there is one thing that he is not able to achieve even after trying many times: the love of his college mate Usha (Biyaanka). Bowled over by her beauty, Rocky repeatedly tries to impress her but fails every time. To his horror, he realizes that Usha is attracted to Vishwas, a guitarist. But Vishwas is unaware of Usha's love for him. So Rocky devises a plan to make Usha realize that Vishwas does not love her. He brings Usha and Vishwas together, but the situation goes out of hand when Vishwas really starts loving her.
The rest of the film tells how Rocky devises new plans to reclaim Usha and the twists and turns in the story makes it interesting to watch.
Sandalwood has earned another handsome hero in Yash. He can emote, dance and fight well, proving he can very well carry a film on his shoulders. Beautiful Biyaanka Desai has done full justice to her role. Jai Jagdish, Padmaja Rao, M.N. Lakshmi Devi, Sanketh Kashi and Sharat Lohitashva have rendered good support to the lead pair.
Director Nagendra Urs has handled the story well and does not disappoint. Music director duo Venkat-Narayan have scored some racy and melodious tunes and debutant cinematographer Sudhakar has displayed his competance.
A campus love story, Rocky targets young audiences and has the right elements to entertain them.
