Five youngsters come to Bengaluru from small towns and become friends. Their aim is to make quick bucks for various reasons. Though, they take the wrong route. How do their million rupee dreams take off?
Shashank Raj has taken a very interesting topic, that of youngsters taking to wrong means to make that quick buck. While his story idea is in the right place, his execution seems half an hour and over a couple of dozens of extra emotions, especially with a climax that outstretches its exit.
The film is about five boys who find a quick way of making money by becoming henchmen in an underworld don's team. Two well-written strong women's characters, one of a self-sufficient middle-class Brahmin girl and the other a club dancer, get them to rethink their choices and choose the righteous path. But, does the life of a criminal have a U-turn at all?
The film in totality seems nice. Though, the director seems to have been carried away by having too many character artistes in a film, who exit without a proper goodbye. And only one of the five protagonist seems to have a proper rounded character.
While Pawan Surya, Tejaswini and Mamatha Rahuth leave a lasting impression, the rest have roles that have little or more to do. The music isn't that great either and the songs seem to make the film longer. Rangayana Raghu, as the hero Pachchi's father, has misplaced role and the length of the film make his emotional scenes have a lesser impact.
This film is for those who like their dose of masala films, for it has the staple action, romance, comedy and item number. For the rest, you could skip it.
This is only for those who love sentimental stories celebrating the bond between mothers and sons. Director Prakash has given the script a comical touch with M S Ramesh penning some brilliant dialogues which keep you in splits. While the first half is lively, the second half has an overdose of boring sentimental sequences.
