Ravi, an orphan, has been raised lovingly by his grandfather. Now, in the city, he is a successful software engineer, aspiring to go onsite for a UK project and calls his granddad to spend time with him before he leaves. But, the innocent villager has a series of misadventures coping up with city life.
Raghavan's Tamil film Manjapai was a successful outing at the box office. He tries to recreate the same with newbie Ravi Gowda in the lead in Kannada. This dramedy gets a little face-lift in Sandalwood, with gloss.
The story is about an orphan Ravi, who loves his grandfather dearly. The village boy has been lovingly raised to be a software engineer in Bengaluru. He's living the perfect life, with his dream of going to UK nearly coming true and also having a successful love life. Things go awry when his villager grandfather comes to live with him. The grandfather's misadventures add both comedy and tension to his work and love life, to the extent of costing him his job. How does he cope with this?
The film is entertaining and engaging in the first half, but drags through the second half a little bit. The songs aren't too great to write home about, adding to the film seeming a little longer than it lasts. But, the comedy is what ensures you still sit through.
The biggest reason to watch this film is Rangayana Raghu, who entertains as the grandfather and literally carries the film on his shoulders. Ravi Gowda is inconsistent in his performance, but shows some promise. Oviya looks pretty and does her part.
This comic film is worth a watch, if you like a hearty dose of comedy with some little bit of weeps too.
