    Plot

    The film features seven simple yet touching stories, which are fairly different from each other. However, the emotions associated with them have a universal appeal. While some give fans food for thought, the others are heartwarming.

    Sathya Katha Prasanga too makes a strong impact, and this likely to connect with the older generation. Girgitle is a surprising attempt at storytelling and bears testimony to the director's creative abilities. The other stories too have their high points and click to some extent. However, as they are not too long,the audience might not be able to process the finer details.

    Performances

    Katha Sangama features several top-notch performers and this works in its favour. Actors such as Kishore, Prakash Belawadi and Raj B Shetty do justice to their parts, proving their mettle.
