Director K R Jagadish has given a different kind of a movie for the Sandalwood. There is freshness in the script and narration as the director has tried to tell two different stories on parallel tracks. While one story is about a medical student landing in jail for a faux pas in his research, the other is a story narrates how people bet on death. They stand in a circle and shoot at each other. The one who survives gets a lot of money.
The main story is focused on Rajiv (Tilak Shekhar), a medical student. He believes his research has invented cure for all types of viruses. He tries his formula on two human beings. But they fail to survive. Rajiv is arrested and imprisoned. He narrates the story to a television journalist Pallavi (Parvathy Nair). Seeing his enthusiasm, Pallavi agrees to undergo his experiment. What happens next?
The second story is a real thriller about people who bet on death. The betting takes place in a remote village and the process is beautifully narrated by the director. The particpants stand in a circle with a gun loaded with a bullet held on the temple of persons standing in front of them. The person who survives gets a lot of money. Here we have our hero Veera (Prathap Narayan), unknowingly caught in the web of the game, winning a huge amount of money. But later he is found murdered in a bus and the money missing. There is a dramatic twist to the story.
Tilak has done a neat job as medical researcher. While Neha Patil and Parvathi Nair have little to do, Prathap Narayan shines. Sathish Kumar has done an outstanding camera work. Music by Vasu Dixit is average.
