Director N Omprakash Rao has done a good job of a story that helps you understand the lifestyle of politicians, how they indulge in goondaism, sex and luring voters with gifts, including money. With a good script and narration, Rao sustains the viewer's interest till the end with some brilliant action sequences created by Palani.
The story focuses on election commissioner Indira (Malashree) who takes on politicians and tries to hold peaceful elections in Karnataka. We have notorious netas like Narasimha (Pradeep Rawat), Ramaswamy (Suchendra Prasad), Gangadhara (Hanumanthegowda), Deviprasad (Devgill), and a honest politician Vishwanath (Lohithashwa). All are in the fray. The commissioner removes roadblocks set up by the campaigners, cancels a political meeting held after 10pm, halts distribution of saris and TV sets, digs out rings hidden in laddus and cash in betel leaves. In short, she becomes Enemy No 1 of politicians.
The candidates try their best to unnerve her by indulging in violence. But in vain. Ultimately, honest politician Vishwanath wins. How? The only question that comes to mind here is whether an election commissioner can fight on the streets with politicians, arrest them and file FIRs. Only the director can answer this.
Malashree shines in her role, both in action and sentimental sequences. Pradeep Rawat excels as Narasimha. Srivathsa has some catchy dialogues for you. Rajesh Katta has done good work as cinematographer. Music by Hamsalekha has nothing much, though.
This movie is for those who want to know the life of underworld dons. Gripping narration and excellent screenplay with a touch of romance make the story quite interesting. Except for a few gunshots, there is not much violence in the story that keeps you on the edge of your seat till the end. The director has woven a romantic track brilliantly which ultimately shows its strength in the climax.
