  • Hollywood Movie Review

    hollywood image

    The eagerly expected Kannada film ‘Hollywood’ an opulently made film with a budget of Rs.7 crore is not as expected. There are exotic locations – a real feast to the eyes. There is Melkote Seenu (a Monkey) and three Upendras plus Ananthnag. The redeeming features of this film are very little. Director Dinesh Baboo easily takes the viewers for granted. He has not answered a few questions he puts on the big screen. What happened to the safety locker 164 that contained the chip? How did robot Upendra managed to function after just throwing the chip?

    It is a lavishly made film no doubt. The presence of an expensive producer the brilliant Upendra and stylish cum thinker Dinesh Baboo could have given something more than what is done in ‘Hollywood’.

    The script done by Upendra has got no earthshaking element in it. One Upendra is timid. He wants to win his lover. Another Upendra is fire in his attitude. He wants to produce a film in ‘Hollywood’ and get an Oscar. The heroine is behind this director Upendra. The timid Upendra in order to win the heart of his lover ask for the help of his boss. The boss immediately makes a robot Upendra. And the confusion starts. By the time everything is sorted with heroine Felicity the robot Upendra fights against goons and go in to pieces on earth when he comes in to contact with electricity. In between there is a monkey that is studying all the developments and the voice over for it (done by Ramesh Bhat) is only laughing element in the film.

    There are all faces of Upendra. How does he look like in various mental make -up? Felicity is a mismatch. The photography is a classic part of this film. Ananthnag looks very funny. Pass marks to Melkote Seenu alias Lakshmi a monkey hired from Chennai. Remaining marks to actor Ramesh Bhat for matching the voice to monkey.

    Mr Ramu the proud producer of Kannada filmdom – you have given a lavish film without working on the script and scintillating elements.

  • Is Upendra too late?

    is upendra too late

    The Assembly elections in Karnataka have already stated so to say. Yesterday BJP president Amit Shah was in Bengaluru giving lessons to Karnataka BJP leaders. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi was in Raichur addressing a rally. Upendra announced his political party which may be named Prajakarana. Upendra has announced that his party will contest all 224 Assembly constituencies. He has asked for feedback from people. In comparison the JDS has already finalized the candidates for all seats. So is Upendra late for 2018? On the first look it seems so. 

    Will Upendra and his party identify the problems he wants to solve. Will he find the political stand on issues he wants to address? Will he find candidates for the constituencies? Will he even come up with a manifesto? There are no answers as yet for some of the basic things like a party name. It is so far an one man show. No big personality from any field, not even Sandalwood has come forward in his support. It is only his hardcore fans who are supporting him online now. Will they out when he calls them is the question. As of now there are more questions than answers. Hope Upendra has answers and some aces up his sleeves.

  • Jaggesh Kicks up a Storm in Twitter Cup

    jaggesh, upendra image

    Uppi 2 has encountered its second controversy in two weeks. The most ambitious film of Upendra in 15 years was first alleged for copying someone's story. But after legal action was contemplated the allegations stopped. But the new controversy is about a song written and sung by Upendra.

    The album was launched on Friday evening. On Sunday morning Jaggesh commented about a particular song without naming the film or Upendra. But fans online were quick to make the connection. While some supported Jaggesh's comments, others were not amused. Though their association is old and started with Upendra turning director with Tarle Nan Maga, the relationship has not always been cordial.

    As of now there is a storm brewing online about Jaggesh's comment. Even outside fans of few other actors are not very happy. The lines in the song are being seen as pointing fingers at Shivarajkumar, Yash and others.

    Ironically the song is about leg pulling! It was meant to be that. As of now no other actor has taken exception and things May cool down. An unwanted controversy is the last thing Sandalwood needs.

    Uppi's latest is the sequel to his earlier horror-comedy Kalpana. This is also the remake of the Tamil film Kanchana 2. Upendra has already been seen in this kind of film and this film takes the entertainment value two steps ahead. With Arjun Janya's brilliant music, a story that has so many twists and turns, mind blowing acting by Upendra, Priyamani and Avantika Shetty, the film is a treat for fans and a happy outing for the family to theatres. But it has been given an A certificate by the Censor Board so viewer discretion is advised. Young children may have to avoid it.
