Veerabhadra is the village do-gooder and the prodigal son to his parents. He's practical and hardworking. This ambitious youngster has everything going right until he stumbles upon love, when he meets Geetha...

This film by Manju Mitra is set in rural Kannada. In its heart, it is a sweet love story and has a script in place. The director has a reasonably good cast too, who are backed by sound technicians. But, what could have been the underdog champion of the year ends up just short of the finish line, courtesy the director falling prey to commercial elements that he deemed mandatory.

The story is simple. Veeru is the village sweetheart and is the apple of his mother's eye. He has a drunkard father and is the backbone to his mother's dream of ensuring their family has a home and business to support them. He unknowingly ends up meeting Geetha, the daughter of a bangle seller. The two end up being classmates. Veeru, the affable do-gooder, ends up helping Geetha and her mother, whose bangle store on the street is razed down due to road widening and ensures they have a proper store. This Geetha Bangle Stores ends up being a big bone of contention thereafter.

Had the director stuck to his love story, with a peppering of a few other themes, the film would have been fine. Unfortunately, there are a few unnecessary subplots and the jokes, more often than not, end up being crass. There is particularly one instance, a comic scene that hints on homosexuality, which is both insensitive and politically incorrect. Wonder how the Censor Board allows such scenes... The songs too are too out of place, especially with the heroine, who is otherwise the proverbial Gowramma, wearing short western outfits.

As far as the acting goes, youngster Pramod has a charming voice. He should concentrate on using that to his advantage rather than getting sold to being the commercial action hero. Sushmita has potential. Giriraj is rather scary as the psycho villain, while the veterans Bhavya, Vinaya Prasad and Achyuth Kumar prove why they are such reliable performers.

This film can be viewed once, since it has a reasonably good story, only if you can endure a film that is nearly three hours long.

On paper, the idea may seem great — making a film on how a man with a motive pretends to be an IPS officer but manages to reform the system. However, the thought is far from reality. While films do offer creative liberty to storytellers, stretching it too far can backfire. Similar is the case with AP Arjun's latest venture
