Shankar, who grows in an orphanage, reunites with his parents after 18 years. He then moves to their house, where he finds a loving family, romance and even adventure.
Himayath Khan's Just Akasmika is a tale that has a bit of action, romance, comedy, sentiments and an underlying thriller element. While this is usually a winning formula, this mishmash proves to be the film's Achilles heel eventually.
The film is a tale of a happy go lucky Shankar Nag fan, who moves to his parents' after reuniting with them after two decades. Here he falls in love with Aarohi, his neighbour who lives in a PG. He also makes the acquaintance of Sachin, a world renowned painter, his other neighbour. But, Sachin and Shankar do not like each other, the reason forms the crux of this story.
The film could have been an edgy thriller, which could have been welcomed by the ever evolving Sandalwood audience. But it falls into the trappings of the formulaic commercial cinema, which is where it becomes just another average run of the mill story. Newbie Vinod Patil is earnest, but you have unnecessary fights and build-ups, which could have been avoided. Sanjjanaa has done a sincere job and looks good. Tilak shines in a character that seems half fleshed out. One wishes there was more justification to his character's actions than the quick two minute tie-up in the end.
The songs are decent but are far too many. The film also seems to make you question logic at times, with the hero's character easily recognizing his childhood sweetheart after two decades but failing to recognize his own parents. But these cinematic liberties aside, the film can make a one-time watch for those who want their balanced dose of filmi entertainment.
