Janardhan, a Kannada lecturer, is told by his family priest that he needs to get married within a year to escape a lifetime of bachelorhood. The catch is that Janardhan is bald and he isn't a big hit with women.
There are very few times that one gets to laugh, cry and experience all the emotions as a tale unfolds onscreen. Debutant actor-filmmaker Raj B Shetty has achieved that in this bittersweet comedy that deals with the life of a bald man. The film is much like the realistic tales narrated by Iranian filmmakers and their ilk. The people are real and the settings aren't manicured. This film, instead, ensures one feels with the characters.
The film is about a bald man who faces prejudices and stereotyping by the society, which looks and approves everything at surface level. There is a very sensitive handling of this hypocrisy and body shaming in a tale that tries to reinforce the age-old tenet 'Beauty is skin deep'.
The indie film has been shot beautiful are and has a terrific background score to supplement the tale. The film is probably the best tribute to Dr Rajkumar made on Kannada screen till date and the subtle references to the late matinee idol and his films are a delight to any film buff. And the cast, toplined by director Raj as the protagonist, ensures this film never seems made up.
There are very few films that are made that have their souls firmly in place. Ondu Motteya Kathe is definitely one of those and one must commend makers Suhan Prasad and Pawan Kumar for ensuring Raj's heartwarming tale has hit the screens. Watch it and support one such film.
Excellent casting<br/>Meaningful dialogs <br/>No cheap jokes at all<br/>Reality<br/>Something showed to the great directors ... In this way too we can do movies to give Gud messages to the society...
very good movie entertainer with good message
Superb and humorous movie which is unique in the way it's screened on an ordinary person who is bald during his about to get married age and the pain he undergoes to overcome the society's treatment for him. It's very natural and don't feel that you are watching movie. The characters were selected very suitably. One should not miss it. It's one of the best kannada movie. Don't feel bored anywhere. For non kannada people than the sub title the action conveys the message more.
