After almost two years wait, director Gurudut's Kannada movie Kichcha Huchcha has finally hit the screens across the state. It is a remake of Naren-Bhavana starrer Tamil movie Chithiram Pesuthadi. Although it is the frame to frame copy of the original, the director has made it suit the taste of local audience. The film is engaging and entertaining with its essential twists.
Kiccha Huccha is a commercial entertainer, which has action, love, punch dialogues and sentiments. The on-screen chemistry of Sudeep and Ramya is the main highlight of the film. Kichcha Huchcha is a lover story of a gangster. The film has a quite simple storyline, but the director"s treatment of the story stands out. It is all about jobless youth turning a gangster to look after his family and later how he changes himself after he falls in love with a girl. The first half narration is in a slow pace, but the second half makes the audience tighten their seat belts.
Kichcha alias Krishna Murthy (Sudeep) is a jobless youth. In a bid to look after his mother and sister, he joins a local rowdy's (Suresh Chandra) gang. One day, he meets Aishu alias Aishwarya (Ramya), who is interested in social service activities. He develops a soft corner for her. In order to impress her, he tries to transform himself by being a normal guy. He quits rowdyism and takes up a job of selling toys on the street. This works out well and Aishu decides to marry him. But their romance soon runs into some roadblocks after Kichcha is arrested by the police in a brothel. How Kichcha manages to get her back facing against all odds forms the rest of the story.
All the characters are well etched and given the right backing. As angry young man, Sudeep impresses the audience and he has acted with ease in all fight, song and sentimental sequences. Besides him Ramya has also delivered wonderful performance. Like their previous movies, the on-screen chemistry between Sudeep and Ramya is a visual treat. Other actors like Srinath, Suresh Chandra, Giri, Narayanaswamy and Chandru have done justice to their respective roles.
V Harikrishna's music for the film is another highlight of the film. Especially, two of the songs 'He Preethiye Suchane Nidodilla…' and 'Udisale Sarigama Padanisa…' are good to listen. Even Bianca Desai's item song is a treat to watch on screen for pranksters. Srivenkat's camerawork is another plus point of the film. Dialogues and editing works are also commendable.
If Gurudatt could have done little more homework on Sudeep's character and comedy element, the movie would have been even more impressive. However, it is good time pass for this weekend.
