Jedara Kannappa (JK) falls in love with Nandini. While JK suffers from night blindness, Nandini has nyctophobia. Nandini wants her (k)night in shining armour to protect her from darkness. JK is in a fix. A comedy of error ensues.
Lyricist-turned-director Ghouse Peer has chosen an entertaining subject for his debut. The film sees Diganth in an action avatar, though the director has cleverly woven a generous dose of comedy to ensure there's an entertaining subject. The film is similar to some of the entertainers from the stables of makers like Rohit Shetty where masala scores over meaning.
The film is an awkward romance between a hero with night blindness and a heroine with nyctophobia. Our hero JK tries hard to hide his medical condition and even woos the heroine by taking her out to Chamundi Hills on a bike in the night and a dinner date too. Amidst this game, JK is mistaken for a sharpshooter who killed an underworld don.
What follows from that moment is absolute mayhem. There are two plots for revenge and also JK's mother who only wants him to be married and live happily ever after. The film has many funny moments, like the introduction scene, where we realize JK's name is a compromise between his parents, who are die-hard Rajkumar fans, and Jedara Kannappa is a mix of Jedara Bale and Bedara Kannappa. The other scenes that stand out include Diganth revealing his night blindness to roommate Chikkanna.
The film has some flaws too. While comedian Mithra, as a speech-impaired person and Diganth's arch rival, has a unique role that sees him in many looks and his presence is pivotal to a twist in the plot, his character does get on one's nerves.
Diganth and Sangeita Chauhaan make a good looking pair. Diganth has a good role and does justice to it. While Sangeita, who made a good debut with Luv U Alia, proves that she's a talent to watch out for, giving another nice performance. The ensemble cast, including Chikkanna, Sudharani, Achyut Kumar and Lakshmi provide enough laughs. The songs and visuals are a treat. The much-hyped special number by Aindrita Ray is a bonus for the front-benchers.
This film is meant for those who love their dose of entertainment and are ready to forgive the lack of logic for an ample dose of masala.
