This film marks the directorial debut of veteran cinematographer PKH Doss. The film is a traditional entertainer, what with a grand heroic entry, a introduction song and even fights galore. Though, this classic style of cinema telling is welcome, the film also has ample comedy tracks that could have been done away with, making the film at least half an hour lesser in duration.
The film's main plot in all its effectiveness is something that begins only midway through. The interval block too is the most absurd one. The second half seems to have things progressing but a lot of commercial film staples - like an item song and a steamy rain dance - are introduced that put it off track for a while. The climax comes calling too soon and one is left befuddled as the film ends.
Vijay Raghavendra does an earnest job, but one needs a strong plot along with that. The comedians could have been done away with. The heroines have bare minimum to do. But one must hand it to the dog in the film, for his cute face evokes sympathy for being placed in the most inappropriate scenes.
If the 80s and 90s style commercial dramas are your favourite then you could go for this. Though, you could always choose a DVD from that era instead too.
