Chenna is the son of a sewage cleaner and is aspiring for a good life by being an ideal student in his college. His mentor, a social reformer, gets him to look beyond his space and fight for the basic rights. Chenna's tryst with this revolution forms the backdrop of this narrative.
Giriraj BM is someone who has touched upon interesting subjects in his film till date. And Amaravathi is no different as it exposes the underbelly of cosmopolitan Bengaluru, focusing on the lives of pourakarmikas, people who are often neglected in the busy metropolitan hubs.
This film definitely isn't the usual candy floss entertainment. Instead, it throws some light on some ugly truths and topics that are far removed from being spoken about, leave alone be the subject of a mainstream film. Ironic is the facy that we see the BBMP board being blurred in some scenes by the makers, which shows the state of affairs of these people and how one cannot even talk about it on celluloid.
The film has some fine performances by the lead actors. Achyut Kumar leads the pack, and shows how he can surprise the audience with such stellar performances with each outing to the big screen. The cinematography and OST are the other highlights. This film is not the usual dose of mindless masala. Instead it is worth a visit to the cinema halls as it gives a reality check of the dark side of the metropolitan cities. An added bonus is that it has good subtitles too.
