Karthik, a National Security Guard, and his mother the defence secretary Anupama Rao are both taken off their jobs through false allegations. What ensues is a journey for revenge.

When one thinks of veteran Kannada filmmaker SV Rajendra Singh Babu, his illustrious filmography with examples like Muttina Hara, Antha and Bandana precede him. Unfortunately, Rebel disappoints. The film, which is meant to be a tailor-made commercial vehicle to propel his son Adityaa's career, ends up being a sorry mix of the 80s jingoism and the yuppy attitude seen in today's generation.

The plot, if we are to call it that, is like a jigsaw puzzle made of dough. Malleable, it twists and turns according to the whims of the makers, in order to accomodate every little character in every other frame. For instance, the so-called villain Shawar Ali seems like a henchman to the minister, until we learn much, much later that he is his son, just to add another twist to the tale.

The film's seriousness is best summed up in a scene where Adityaa, an escaped convict, tells his mother Suhasini not to worry and that he will be back soon (escaping, we are to presume), when cops come to arrest him.

Most of the actors, including veterans like Ramakrishna and Sudharani, seem to have done insignificant cameos only because of the good will Rajendra Singh Babu commands. Sanjjanaa has a role that requires her to prep up and look pretty, while Preetika makes a forgettable debut in a miniscule role, smaller than Sanjjanaa's costumes. Go for this film only if you're a fan of the filmmaker's work and want to see old dialogues being loosely thrown around for whistles.
