  • Rustum review: Chitraloka Rating 4/ 5*

    rustum movie review

    Renowned stunt choreographer Dr. Ravi Verma who has turned director with Rustum, delivers one of the finest action packed entertainers in recent times which comes along with his trademark punches. What makes it even more special is that it comes straight from none other than Karunada Chakravarthy Dr. Shivarajakumar.

    With a perfect tale which fits the commercial potboiler, the director has blended the right kinds of emotions in a well-balanced manner without any dull moment in the two plus hours of its duration.

    Returning in the avatar as the honest cop, who believes in encountering anti-social elements than allowing them to be reformed, Shivanna is undoubtedly in his prime phase who simply keep raising the bar of excellence in his every attempt to give his best to the audience. His fans would simply love him in this one.

    On the outset, it is about dealing with the evils with an iron hand and the rest of it is pure action drama. Drawing his expertise for having worked as a stunt choreographer for several years, Ravi Verma has worked hard on every element to keep the audience engaged right till the end. 

    The making meets the standards along with perfectly placed numbers by composer Anoop Seelin. The baby song is the highlight of it all long with crisp editing. There are hardly any minuses when considered it as the 'commercial masala' aimed to satisfy the fans and similar audience. 

    Insofar as the rest of the cast, Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi, who has dubbed in his voice is another highlight while Shraddha shines in a short and hot role. However, it is Mayuri along with the child artiste who put up an impressive act. Go watch Shivanna in complete action with full marks to Ravi Verma.

    Even as the entire country is opening up its mind to the terrorist attack in Uri and India's response to it, the people in Sandalwood who had the remote connection to Pakistan and its people are tight-lipped. From Salman Khan to Zee's Subhash Chandra the question of Pakistani artistes in films and television has become a heated topic.

    Pakistani actress Veena Malik acted in the Kannada film Silk. No Sandalwood personality who worked in this film, from director Trishul, producer RV Venkatappa, actors Akshay, Sadhu Kokila, music composer Jessie Gift or anyone else have even made a public statement whether they would work with a Pakistani actor in the current situation. Veena Mallik came to Bengaluru and issued movie Tickets to the fans who were thrilled! 


    Another Kannada film Matte Mungaru was about an Indian who is held in a Pakistani prison for several years. The film starred Srinagar Kitty and was directed by Dwarki. It was produced by E Krishnappa who is a MLC. But none of the film team has spoken a word about the Pakistani created terrorism that is affecting India now.


    Ex Minister and MLA CP Yogeshwar produced and acted in the film Sainika. The film was directed by Mahesh Sukhadhare and was about a soldier's life during and after a war with Pakistan. Neither Yogeshwar or Sukhadhare have made a statement about Pakistani terrorism.


    Sarvabhouma movie starring Shivarajkumar, Mayuri is also on Indo - Pak subject which was directed by Mahesh Sukhdhare.

    It is not compulsory for everyone to make a statement about every issue.

    But film personalities who have made use of the Pakistani issues in their commercial films could at least make a statement condemning terrorism in such a time.

  • Shivalinga Movie Review

    shivalinga image

    Shivalinga is a complete entertainer. It is basically a murder mystery. But there are loads of comedy, suspense and horror packed in the 151 minutes. P Vasu packages the film as an entertainment bonanza. An engrossing storyline combined with great acting and edge-of-the seat suspense makes Shivalinga a must watch.

    The film starts with a murder on a train. The man is a Muslim and he is engaged to be married to a Hindu girl. The case is closed as a suicide but the girl forces it to be reinvestigated. Shiva, a CID officer steps in. Everyone becomes a suspect in the case. Strangely, Shiva's new wife also gets involved in the case. But what does she have to do with it? The ghost of the dead man also comes back seeking to know who killed him and why. It is a great mix of fun, horror and suspense from then on. How Shiva manages to find the real culprit and save his wife from the ghost forms the rest of the story.

    Apart from the gripping story and narration what the film promises and delivers is excellent acting by the actors including Shivanna, Vedhika, Sadhu Kokila, Shakti P Vasu, Urvashi, Vinaya Prasad, Avinash and others. PKH Das has done some superb photography and manages to give the film a fantastic look. Music by Harikrishna is also pleasing and is a perfect foil to the rest of the film which is full of suspense. 

    This film also showcases Shivanna's talent to the fullest extent. It is not only in commercial elements like fighting and dancing but also in showing his performance, the film has become a showcase for him. He makes it look so real. Vedhika as the terrified wife and also as the terrifying possessed woman is awesome. This film is for everyone to enjoy. Great show by director P Vasu.

    Chitraloka Rating - 3.5/5
