Director Rajashekhar had done his first movie Amrutha Vani with a love story. When the subject did not yield expected amount of success, the director seems to have taken a diversion from the subject in his second directorial venture Parole, which had headlines for all wrong reason.
Rajashekhar has chosen a thriller and suspense story for the movie Parole. He has even included a couple of real life incident in the film. The script has no loose ends and the suspense is kept till the very end, which is superb. With gripping narration, meaningful dialogues and perfect plot, he has tried to make it a good watch. He seems to have given a new dimension to commercial films.
The movie Parole revolves around how father Shantha Murthy avenges the murder of his son Rahul by killing his four friends. The first half is an out-and-out suspense thriller and deals the reason for murders and the investigation. The second half is even more interesting with emotions and suspense.
Shantha Murthy (B Suresh) is the father of Rahul (Sooraj) and he struggles to educate his son, who is studying medicine. Rahul is in love with Nikitha (Supreetha), who too loves him equally. Rahul's close friend Jaani (Sharath) is also madly in love with Nikitha. Along with his three friends Gopi (Likith Shetty), Sharath (Vishwas) and Raj (Pradeep), Jaani kills Rahul in drunken state of mind. But using their influence and money power, they come out of jail on parole and plan to kill Rahul's father Shantha Murthy, who avenges his son"s death by killing them.
As CCB cop, Kishore has delivered a classic performance in the film. B Suresh has also shown lot of energy in his role as Rahul"s father, but his performance seems to have fallen flat due to his theatrical acting. Newcomers Sooraj, Vishwas, Likith have shown lot potentials in their acting. Pradeep and Supreetha need to improve to prove their mettle. Nagaraja Murthy and Suchendra Prasad are also good in their respective roles.
Balaji K Mithran"s music is a perfect harmony to the narration of the events. All his songs are perfectly placed and subtle. Songs 'Jaadhu Adhe Manasali…"and 'Preethi Heegena… are his lovely tunes in the movie. Debutant cameraman Gudulpet Suresh has also done a commendable job in the film.
However, the inconsistent narration and a few age-old sequences mar the beauty of the film, but they won"t disturb the viewers enjoying the movie Parole, which is a must watch film.
