The story, on paper, seems like a winner, with the right mix of fantasy, action and romance, and punch dialogues. Alas, the story didn't turn into great screenplay and the direction falls short

Prajwal, a happy-go-lucky college-goer, accidentally lands into a forbidden land, along with two unexpected partners, a drunkard and an insurance agent. The story then turns into a quasi-fantasy tale, mixing action, romance, comedy and all other possible genres.

This film could have been Prajwal Devaraj's own Magadheera, Bhajarangi or Gajakessari. The story, on paper, seems like a winner, with the right mix of fantasy, action and romance, added to which is a generous dose of punch dialogues. Alas, the story didn't turn into great screenplay and the direction, hence, falls short.

The story begins with a premise of a mystical land, which is now cursed due to a lost temple. Then, there's the cursed tribe, who are paranoid to let anyone enter their world. Our hero stumbles into this land, with two unlikely companions. He finds love, enemies, friends and adventure in this land. Of course, this comes with many WTF moments, where you're wondering how three people, who've supposedly met with an accident and been taken hostage have enough clothes to last through the story. Similarly, why didn't the drunkard's glass bottles (taped to his jacket inside) break, when they fall into a ravine and have injuries. And these are just some surface-level questions.

Prajwal has a tailor-made role, but the narration and script fails him. He's evolving as an actor, but he needs to pick makers who will show that in the right films. Newbie Manasa has a role that's got nothing much to offer. Pannaga Bharana impresses in his comic role. Tabla Nani's drunkard stereotype is too loud, as is Sadhu Kokila's funny cameo. Ananth Nag and Avinash have limited roles and do justice to what's offered to them. What is commendable in the film, though, is the cinematography. The locations look grand. But, that's where the praise ends.
