Full marks to Gadda Viji for the brilliant way of handling stories of prisoners who land in jail for various reasons. In his first movie, Viji has tried experimenting with a different colour. He has excellently captured the innocence of criminals who land in jail for reasons not known to them and become victims of circumstances. Each criminal has his own story that touches your heart.
There is drama in every criminal's life. Take the example of Jaggu (Nataranga Rajesh). His wife hangs in his shop for a petty reason and Jaggu is jailed for no fault of his. Similarly, we have Chinkara (Neenasam Satheesh) who is set to marry a film actress Chaya (Sonia Gowda), but she is in a relationship with a minister. The old jail barrack collapses due to heavy rain and many prisoners escape. We have a home minister (Mico Nagaraj) who orders killing of all the escaped prisoners thinking it would keep society peaceful. The sharp shooter is police officer Savanth (Sathya). As he begins executing the minister's order, many escaped criminals feel jail is the safest place for them. The movie opens with many interesting turns of events as many criminals find Dyavru (god) in jailer Bhimsen (Yograj Bhat). But he too is jailed for the escape of criminals as well as the murder of minister and actress Chaya. The entire story is recorded by TV journalist Shruthi Kalappa (Sonu Gowda). A feature of the movie is brilliant background music by Veera Samarth. The idea of using lyrical bits to explain sequences is a brilliant idea.
Yograj Bhat has done a good job as an actor too, but he should realize that direction is his forte. Neenasam Satheesh walks away with all honours for his brilliant performance with good expression and body language. Sonu Gowda as TV reporter is impressive. Sonia Gowda too has done well as an actress. Guruprashant P Rai has done an excellent work with his camera.
