Two pairs, one consumed by lust and the other by innocent love, cross paths through ill fate and become part of a tussle between CCB police officers and a dreaded KGF underworld gang. Who manages to escape unhurt?
In hyperlink cinema, parallel tracks inevitably cross paths. Dove belongs to this category, with clever writing and some decent performances. Taking inspiration from one of the most publicized crimes in Bengaluru in the last decade, filmmaker Santhu has come up with his own story, which makes for an almost engaging watch.
The film has two sets of lovers — there's puppy love between students Anoop and Aditi and lust between Kumar, a bar helper and Sona, a rich brat. While the first couple manages to grab a fair share of screen space the latter stands taller because of the bolder track they are part of. The third track shows a CCB officer and his team on the tail of a dreaded criminal gang. Telling more would be spoiling the plot, for Santhu has woven the three tracks quite convincingly.
The limitations in the script lie in the fact that the director has tried to give in to commercial prerequisites like songs. While, by themselves, they are good, they slow down the plot of an otherwise gripping tale. So do some action scenes, though they justify the A certificate the film has been given.
While the four lead characters are impressive, the film really belongs to Sharath Lohithashwa and Daniel Balaji. The latter is quite scary as the tenacious baddie from the KGF gang and makes a solid entry into Sandalwood.
If you like your films with an extra dose of action and violence, this one's for you. A good script is an added bonus.
