Purmy, a vegetable auctioneer, who is engaged to be married to school teacher, is picked up by the police. He has been rounded in as the prime suspect in the kidnap case of a school kid. How does Purmy wriggle out of this mess?
When one watches a Suni film, what one is assured is innovative dialogues, filled with quirks and laughs, and an offbeat take on something we see daily. Operation Alamelamma also delivers the same. The film, which rides high on its writing and dialogues, is mostly a fun ride for the viewers, where they are often found laughing at the simple, but funny dialogues.
This story, which at heart is a thriller, is also a romcom with some heartwarming scenes. While the film begins in the middle of a kidnap drama, it soon takes a comical twist as we are introduced to the lead pair — Purmy and Ananya. Both of them are street smart and have their own dreams and aspirations. A breezy romcom is what unfolds until we come back to the kidnap drama and its prime suspect Purmy. From there, we see a mix of action, a whodunnit mystery and even sentimental drama.
The film has a first half that engages and entertains with lots of light moments. The second half, which has a lot of drama unfolding, ends up being a tad slow towards the end, which can get one fidgeting. The film scores high on technical values. Cinematographer Abhishek G Kasargod promises to be an asset to the Kannada film industry, given his work here. Judah Sandhy's songs and background score adds to the narrative.
When it comes to acting, Rishi makes his mark, and how! He has a tailormade role to create an impression, and he uses it and charms the viewer. His screen presence is hard to miss. Shraddha Srinath delivers with a well-etched character and proves why people are tipping her to be the next big thing in Sandalwood. Rajesh Nataranga is good, albeit his role is akin to the one in Kendasampige.
This film is for those who want to be entertained and also like clever writing. Suni's brand of cinema is well-known and this is another such, go ahead and get your weekend laughs.
