A crude bomb goes off in a college in coastal Karnataka. Immediately, political bigwigs are pointing fingers at different religious groups. There's an honest cop on duty, but does he manage to nab the actual suspect behind this blast?
Coastal Karnataka is far different from its capital city of Bengaluru. This film, which is based on a news clipping seen in Times Of India by B Suresha, shows how this politically volatile region has vultures from different groups just waiting for a suitable opportunity.
One of the few political thrillers in Sandalwood after long, this story has the ample use of different languages and dialects spoken in the region to lend authenticity. There's a sweet love story that forms the epicentre of this tale, which snowballs into political conspiracy theory.
What is praiseworthy is the way the filmmaker has shown everything without any bias, be it caste or religion politics, the Naxal movement, the SEZ zone threat in the area or the lopsided priorities of news channels in the state whose aim is to sensationalize.
The casting is near perfect. The makers have chosen performers over actors, lending authenticity to each of the character and the scenes. There are some interesting symbols and motifs used too, which makes one question which Devara nadu (Lord's land) are the characters fighting for.
This film is meant for all those who crib about the lack of any intelligent and original scripts in Sandalwood. Go test your intelligence and be entertained too.
