Mohan, a teacher, is stuck at a crossroad in his life, where he has to not just deal with a relationship that has taken an ambiguous turn but also discipline a set of cricketers, both young and old, while dealing with the ghosts of his past.
Debutant director Suneel Raghavendra's Puta Tirugisi Nodi has finally hit the screens after a fair bit of rounds in the festival circuit. The film is a slice-of-life tale that mixes relationships, introspection, personal triumphs and, everyone's favourite, cricket.
One of the best bits of the film is the narrative style. The director employs the Woody Allen-esque live chat that the characters indulge in with the audience that also helps take the story forward. The film has a lively feel-good factor about it, and the colloquial conversation style ensures it appeals to the city multiplex cinegoer.
The performances are the highlight. There are no over-the-top heroics instead this film evokes laughs and empathy because the scenes are such that many can relate to. Lead actors Kailash TV and Adithi Kalkunte ably lead the ensemble cast. The other highlight of the film is the soundtrack by Dheerendra Doss, which is a mix of new age sounds and vintage, a breath of fresh air when compared to the run-of-the-mill albums in films.
Go for this if you're the sort who likes to watch non-formulaic films, for this film doesn't preach but just entertains in rather everyday style.
