Thangam, known as Mini Veerappan in Kolar, has been cornered by an encounter specialist. He narrates his life story, on how he took to crime and also about the two important women in his life.
Kolara is the biopic of Thangam — one of the most notorious names from Kolar till date. The film tries to trace his journey into the world of crime, albeit with a very humane approach when unveiling details about his life. While Thangam's character is brought alive with a career best performance by Yogi, the writers seem to have missed fleshing it out in the right manner, for one does not get to see the fear or awe that his name evoked, and he seems more like a love sick puppy at most times.
The other flaw in the narrative is how none of Thangam's brothers have a character map and are reduced to just aside commentaries once the film is nearing an end. While the film begins on a promising note, it meanders slowly and the duration is pretty long. There are quite a few scenes with gory bloodshed (which justifies the film's A certificate).
If you're the sort who likes following real life inspired crime capers, Kolara might interest you. Though, be prepared for a long session at the cinema hall as the film unfolds on its own sweet, little pace.
