Bangalore Naatkal, a multi-starrer featuring Arya, Sri Divya and Bobby Simha in the lead, has hit the big screen all over the world. How different is the film from its original version titled Bangalore Days? Has Bangalore Naatkal done justice to the Malayalam version? Continue reading our movie review to know.
Bangalore Naatkal Plot:
This film has a pretty simple plot. Three cousins (played by Arya, Sri Divya and Bobby Simha) end up in Bangalore for various reasons and are in love with the city.
But they do not have it easy in Bangalore, for each of them face a difficult situation at some point of time in their respective lives.
How do these happy-go-lucky cousins, who love to lead cheerful lives, overcome their sticky situations by making full use of their positive attitudes forms the rest of the story.
Stand out performances come from Sri Divya and Parvathy. These two women steal the show with their credible performances.
While Parvathy, who plays an RJ, has delivered a powerful act, Sri Divya's expressions are something to watch out for.
Among men, Arya is an absolute treat to watch. Though Rana Daggubati and Bobby Simha have come up with decent performances, a question mark continues to loom over the portrayal of their respective characters till the very end.
While Samantha's appearance is equivalent to a whiff of fresh air, other supporting actors and actresses like Prakash Raj and Saranya Ponvannan add stability to the film.
While the first half is filled with fun elements, which keeps us entertained, the latter half gets tiring at places. Also, the overall running time of the film could've been reduced.
Editor Marthand K Venkatesh should've used his pair of scissors more in the second half, which could've helped the film's pace and crispness.
Among the positives, KV Guhan's cinematography is top-notch, for the cameraman has managed to capture Bangalore in the most exquisite way possible. His angles too, are refreshing.
Background score by Gopi Sunder is decent enough and suits the mood of Bangalore Naatkal.
Though director Bommarillu Bhaskar has made an honest attempt to recreate the magic of Bangalore Days, it's more the spirit of this story that makes Bangalore Naatkal bearable.
