True love stands on truth. But is it harmless to build a relationship on an untruth and carry on a bond based on lies? Have an opinion, swing this way or sway the other way. When the High Court gives its verdict in the film, you will be flabberghasted.
The climax first. The High Court is hearing a public interest litigation on a programme titled `Love with lie' (whatever that means!) being telecast on television. The programme tries to challenge people to stick to the truth in a relationship. If they lie, they run the risk of being exposed as their telephone will give out a beep sound. For such a technology to work, the participants have to register themselves with the show.
The show takes its toll. Couples in love separate as their lies get exposed. Relationships break because the truth is revealed.
An advocate Vishwanath (Suman) does not take kindly to this show being hosted by Satya (Satya Krishna). There are protests everywhere - for and against the programme. Vishwanath argues in the court against the programme vociferously. His argument is that it is okay to tell lies to sustain a relationship. He sees no harm in speaking untruth if the situation demands between lovers and married couples.
The court gives its verdict. The host of the programme is reprimanded and it is directed that the programme be taken off air!
It is baffling as to how the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) could allow the judiciary to be shown in such poor light standing by the argument of the lawyer that it is okay to tell lies.
In the story preceding are shown some lovers in relationships that are built on selfish motives. A girl ditches her lover telling him she intends to marry a wealthy man. The shocked lover promises to take up a job and keep her happy. Poking fun at him, she asks if he wants to become a collector or a conductor. Bus conductors do have their honour, don't they?
Krishna Bhagavan plays the role of a junior artiste in films and gets poked by his wife all the time for being a junior artiste and not a hero. It's like taking a dig at junior artistes in general and is not in good taste. In any case, Krishna Bhagavan's role was irrelevant. If it was intended to generate some humour in the otherwise nauseating proceedings, no one laughed. That is because there was hardly anyone in the theatre.
M N Narayana portrays the role of a `love guru' who walks around in parks with a laptop dishing out solutions to lovers in problems. You wish you could wish him away.
Note: The movie started at 11.30 am and ended at 1.30 pm. You will have to put up with the ridiculous for all of those six hours. You know what I mean.
