Screenplay at parts
Danish Sait is a known figure at a national level for his witty mocks and humorous pranks. When he decided to extend it to a non-stop duration of 2:30 hours in the form of Nograj and Manjunath, it has and indeed is, fun all the way.
Vijay Chendoor is too good and his combination scenes and chemistry with Danish Sait pulls in a lot of attention towards them. It is actually the duo's combination which works more than the dialogues and humour.
The rest of the star cast support the lead actor and the overall movie in sailing at its pre-determined pace.
Dialogues are important and is the key aspect of the movie as it holds the entire flick together. The Kanglish writing, puns and the wordplay are very new for Kannada audience, and though, it tends to go overboard at times, they seem to be negligible.
Editing could have been better as the scenes seem to be jagged allowing little time for the audience to enjoy certain dialogues at their own time. Music has been rendered by a group of musicians and has been on the positive side.
There are quite a few scenes which will etch an impact in the minds of audience who would carry them back for discussion.
Humble Politician Nograj is a fine entertainer for the weekend and is also the first of its kind genre for Kannada audience.
