Shankar is a singer and mehendi artist in Bijapur. He falls in love with Priya, the sister of one of the biggest zamindars in his city, when he visits her house on work during a wedding. But it isn't a bed of roses for them as caste and money divides their love...
Debutant director Shivu Jamkhandi's musical love story is his attempt to ensure there is something for the cinema audience in North Karnataka to relate to, especially given the film has dialogues in their native dialect.
While it does stay true to the way they speak and is shot in picturesque locations like Gol Gumbaz and Jamkhandi Fort.
The story is an old-school love story, with a city-bred daughter of a wealthy family falling in love with a local artiste when she visits home for her sister's wedding. Their near-perfect love story sees a hurdle when they realize the disparity in their backgrounds would mean the society cannot accept them living together. Do they manage to win everyone over?
The film follows the conventional, old-school romance pattern and the filmmaker has ensured the visuals and music play to the senses. The comedy and the dialect are interesting, but the pace of the film is rather sluggish, with the romantic track making it seem slow at regular intervals. One wishes the songs in the film were also in the same dialect as the dialogues, to lend more authenticity.
Vijay Raghavendra has a nice role, which allows him to show a gamut of expressions from romance to pathos to action, and gives his earnest best. Nidhi Subbaiah looks good and her dubbing, especially, is rather commendable. Tilak Shekar as the old-school villain has done a good job.
Watch this film if you're from North Karnataka, for there's something to cheer about with the ambience the film brings to the cinema hall.

The film is set in the background of the caste cauldron the movie establishes how deeply the caste sentiments run even within our law enforcement systems, through a police station scene, where someone is let free owing to his community. It is also one of those young-love-against-the-system films, but the focus is not solely on the couple''''s attempts to brave the institutions, but a lot more.
Very nice direction. Prosenjit, he acted like God. Amazing acting. He has gone to a new level. No one dares to touch him or move him from where he''''''''s standing now. Great music by Anupam Roy. Must watch movie.
