A journalism student ends up in the hamlets of Malnad due to her inquisitive nature. She stumbles on the story of Hombanna — a local botanist — and how he ends up facing the heat of forest land encroachment. What happens to him and his people?
There are very few films made on topics such as conservation and forest preservation, despite several problems looming large. In that sense, the makers of this film must be lauded. Though, they falter quite a few times in the narrative, which is often jagged and unfolds quite sluggishly. The film has been shot in lush green locales and the visuals are a treat. But some rather amateur acting along with rushed screenplay that keeps going all over the place don't match up to the visuals. The music, which seems forced at times, is melodious and the compositions grow on one.
The film begins on a very promising note, but it falters quite a bit only to regain its hold towards the end of the film. Should you watch this film? If you don't mind supporting a novel attempt that addresses a topic that needs attention, then it could interest you. Although, if you want a racy story to unfold on screen for you, then this might not be your cup of tea.
Movie is really good. Toilet of India stop degrading good kannada movies. Both OMK and Hombanna is good. It's not the first time that this tissue paper of India is doing this. Paid media stop this non sense.
