Diganth Manchale, Kriti Kharbanda, Ramesh Bhat

The biggest plus point of the film is the lead pair. With Diganth and Kriti Kharbanda, arguably two of the best looking faces in Sandalwood, the director couldn't have got it better.

A scientist leaves behind his wealth, including a time machine to an engineering student. Through this machine, he ends up conversing with a student living in 1999 and falls in love with her. Will he manage to trace her and have a happily ever after story?

This film by Randeep Santaram Mahadik is interesting and novel to the average movie-goer. But, if one looks closely, the director has cleverly chosen the plot of the cult Korean film Il Mare. The theme of the Korean film was two people living in the same house by a lake, who end up writing letters to each other, even though they live across different time periods. This film has no house by the lake, but there is a makeshift bar by the lake, which is reminiscent of the setting of the original film. Instead of staying in the same house, the two lovers are students in the same college, only studying 15 years apart. And instead of letters, the lovers converse through a walkie-talkie in 1999 and a time machine in 2015.

The film takes off to a rickety start, but soon thereafter, it stabilizes to become a sweet love story. The fact that films with time travel are rare in Kannada make this film interesting and, despite the fact that it is inspired from a cult Korean film, the maker has changed it quite a bit to give the Kannada audience their dose of masala, including a fight sequence where Diganth exclaims, "Ee face matra class, body full mass" (Only my face is class, my body is full mass).

The biggest plus point of the film is the lead pair. With Diganth and Kriti Kharbanda, arguably two of the best looking faces in Sandalwood, the director couldn't have got it better. Dilip Raj, a seasoned performer, is entertaining as the hero's best friend. The songs by V Harikrishna are nice, but don't leave an impression that you'd expect in a love story like this. But for this, the love story actually has novelty for the Kannada audience and is a welcome break from the usual underworld and massy films with an action overload. Go watch this with your special someone.

Yuva is a young rebel, who aims to be the boss of everyone. Street-smart and intelligent, he does not want to be the Good Samaritan like Bhagat Singh that his mother wants him to be. His dreams and aspirations make him take some 'wrong' choices. But, his journey makes him understand what's good and what's not.<br/>Mass entertainers come with a lot of terms and conditions. Their basic premise is to entertain the crowds across different sections, which means, more often than not, people forsaking logic at times. Quite often, when there is a big star at helm, one gets carried away with his presence on screen and also gives up on the story. Luckily, Manju Mandavya's debut endeavour as a director proves to overcome these obstacles and delivers a film that entertains, has a message and also gives the hero ample scope to perform his antics.<br/>What is Masterpiece about? Well, it is a film about ambitions, torn between a mother's dreams to see her son as a social reformer and a son's gluttony for power. The 'mother sentiment' has always been a trump card for mass filmmakers in south India and Manju Mandavya gives this age-old idea an interesting makeover. Yash's character traits make him that loveable rebel who is instantly likeable. His 'good-natured' mother, who dreams of seeing her son do extremely well in life, comes across as more annoying than loving. This works for the film, because, with the plot's progression, you tend to have a shift of emotions, siding the mother and wondering why the son doesn't see the mother's logic.
