  • Puta 109 Movie Review, Chitraloka rating 3.5/5

    puta 109 review

    Dayal and his team is back after the sensational Aa Karala Ratri. The new film Puta 109 is an edge of the seat thriller with two main protagonists. The entertaining screenplay is a jugalbandi between a novelist and a police officer. 

    A police officer arrives at the home of a novelist to clarify some points in the investigation of the death of the latter's wife. You are left in no doubt that the novelist is also a suspect and that is why the police officer has come searching for him. But as they talk you get to know many more layers to the story. 

    There is not one but multiple suspects. During the course of this interview the police officer discards the suspicion one by one. But try as he may he is unable to pin the crime on the novelist. Who wins the duel forms the rest of this suspenseful investigative story. 

    Dayal is clinching in his narrative while the dialogues by Naveen Krishna adds a good dimension to this story telling. In fact the entire narrative is driven by dialogues. Naveen Krishna's abilities as a dialogue write is in full swing. 

    JK Karthik Jayaram and Naveen Krishna are the two main actors. Most of the film takes place inside a house. The cinematographer has put an extra effort to capture the minute moods of the characters. The background score with its strategic silence and genuine understanding of the requirement elevated the film by a few notches. 

    Overall Puta 109 is both an entertaining film and an experimental achievement. A film that deserves to be appreciated for its commitment to experiments in Sandalwood.

  • Satya Harischandra Movie Review

    satya harishchandra review

    Satya Harischandra which brings director Dayal Padmanabhan and actor Sharan together for the first time together is an action comedy film that is full of entertainment. The film also stars Sanchita Padukone, Bhavana, Chikkanna, Sadhu Kokila and others. So you can imagine the comedy quotient it brings to the table. The film is about Satya Harischandra, who is named such because his father wants him to be a very honest person. But after seeing his father die due to a wrong reason, he decides to lie always. When he grows up he becomes a headache to the entire village because of his lies. The village headman (played by Sharat Lohitashva) decides to throw him out of the village. But he is given a last chance and if there is a new complaint against him within 30 days he will be thrown out. 

    Can Satya Harischandra survive without telling a lie for one full month? It is not possible. But he comes up with various ideas to stop the village headman from taking action against him. But this time the lies he tells comes to haunt him. He has to to impossible things to survive one lie. The one lie he tells become a hundred lies and all of them come to haunt him. How Sharan's character manages to overcome all these difficulties and rises to the occassion forms the rest of the story. 

    In the village the main characters are Sharan, Seeta, Sharat Lohitashva and Chikkanna. He is forced to go to Germany where the main characters are Sanchita, Bhavana Rao and Sadhu Kokila. When he returns to India, there is a twist. Trouble comes with him. There are dozens of twists and turns in the film. The comedy film also has action and adventure. There are killers on the loose. There is scheming relatives and unknown friends. It is a puzzle that Sharan has to solve to survive and help his friends and family. 

    There is good music by Arjun Janya. He gives some melodious music. The old song Kuladalli Melyavudo has been remixed and it is a big hit in the film. The other songs are soothing. There is also very good camera work which is impressive. The climax shooting on a hill fort is awesome. The locations in Germany is also beautifully captured. Though much of the film takes place in the Virupakshi village, other places like Melukote and other countryside locations are also shown. 

    There is very good acting by Sharan who carries the film on his shoulders. Sanchita as the girl under attack and Bhavana as the girl who is cheated are perfect in their roles. Chikkanna is impressive as ever. His timing is perfect and each of his dialogues brings laughter. Though Sadhu Kokila is missing for most of the second half, his character leaves a good mark on the film. 

    Overall Satya Harischandra is an entertainer for the entire family that spreads laughter. It is the perfect film for Deepavali and a present you should give to your family. 

    Chitraloka Rating - 3.5/5

  • The Misleading Trumpet! - Article by Dayal Padmanabhan

    care of footpath 2 image

    Kannada noted film director Dayal Padmanabhan has written an article on the so called Oscar Lateral Entry Care of Footpath 2 directed by Kishan. Following is the letter sent to chitraloka.

    “I would rather be known in life as an honest sinner, than a lying hypocrite” This quote is my life’s mantra and the soul reason which drives me to constantly stand my grounds on any issue. 

    For people who have managed to follow me on my social forum, are to be sure about my attitude towards placing on record, my humble opinion about anything that concerns our much treasured industry of cinema. Few days back, my statements regarding few people gloating the ‘submission’ of their film as ‘entry’ to Oscar is one such instance.


    To my fortune, I came across this article which clearly deciphers my opinion in a scientific manner. The link to the article is - http://www.huffingtonpost.in/2015/09/28/oscar-lateral-entry_n_8206512.html

    The motion poster of Care of Footpath-2 uploaded in YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDtRtiba9pI) attempts at laying down few statistics, but sadly they have messed up the meaning of two distinctive terms ‘submission’ and ‘entry’. As far as the prestigious Oscar award is concerned, even the submission through the Film Federation of India (FFI) which is the authorized body of our country to recommend films to the academy, is laudable. As the struggle is hard! On an average Indian film industry produces 2000 films* per year. Maximum of only 2.5% ** (approx.. 50) of total films made are submitted to the FFI for consideration to Oscar submission in the category of FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM AWARD and the FFI submits only one feature for the same. 

    While ace filmmakers of our land are on a walking race to this award, a legal backdoor entry termed as ‘Lateral Entry’ by just taking a flight to reach the United States must not be treasured like the latter. Even concerned filmmakers must ethically understand these hardships faced by other filmmakers while giving their backdoor entry a similar stature. Think before starting to blow your trumpets!

    Gems like MS Sathyu, Mira Nair, Mehaboob Khan, Mani Ratnam, Kamal Haasan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aamir Khan, Ashutosh Gowariker and many other’s efforts and genuineness shown by taking the FFI route to the academy awards is brought to a minuscule through this immature act. 

    Unfortunately, one of the biggest and popular names in the play, Hema Malini, Member of Rajya Sabha, irresponsibly tweeted about the same as this film features her daughter Eesha Deol in a lead role, without gaining knowledge on the ground reality and facts. 

    Do not mislead the film patrons and let the truth conquer!

  • Toss Movie Review - Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5

    toss image

    As love triangles in films go, Toss is an unusual film. Love triangles are very common as plots in romantaic films. Director Dayal Padmanabhan gives it an unusual twist and a different narrative in Toss. The film has Vijaya Raghavendra, newcomer Sandeep and Ramya Barna in the lead roles. 

    The two leading men play childhood friends. Nothing can come between them until they both fall in love with the same girl. They realise it but cannot sacrifice. So they go for a toss to decide who will try to woo her. But will they be true to their words. What all can go wrong in such a scenario? Will the love for the girl test their friendship and will it sustain? These things are answered in an innovative manner by Dayal. 

    In the acting department Vijaya Raghavendra is classy. He is one of the best actors in the Kannada film industry and he makes best use of the good role that has come his way. Newcomer Sandeep is also impressive and does his best despite being new before the camera. Ramya Barna, who was recently in the news for her surprise wedding is bubbly as usual and comes up with a eye-candy performance.

    There are some good peppy dialogues and lyrics in the film which keeps the story teeming with life. There is a tight script which helps the plot moving forward and surprise elements that keep popping up one after the other. The supporting cast of Sunethra Pandit, Suchendra Prasad, Sihi Kahi Chandru and Sihi Kahi Geetha also get meaty roles.

    Among the technical crew the work of editor Sri and music composer Gowtham Shrivatsa stands out. The film is two and a half hours long like the traditional format which is long for a modern film in Kannada where the film length is closing towards the two hour mark.

  • Trayamabakam review: Chitraloka Rating 3.5 / 5*

    trayambakam mpvie review

    The sensible director Dayal Padmanabhan returns delivering his third venture in less than nine month's time after Aa Karala Ratri and Puta 109. Pegged around a centuries old unique Shivalinga made out of navapashana dating back to Vijayanagara dynasty which has greater medicinal qualities, Thrayambakam revolves around a father's emotional struggle between reality and illustration.

    The father's role portrayed by Raghavendra Rajkumar depicts the plight of an ailing person who is in a constant state of confusion over the death of his daughter. The brilliant writing along with the natural act of Raghavendra Rajkumar keeps the tale interesting as the confusion over series of real illusion gets murkier as it heads to the second part.

    Based on the historical findings over 'navapashana’, its relevance since ancient times and similarly made idols which are found in couple of temples in Tamilnadu, director has attempted a new kind of storytelling attached with thrilling moments.

    While the curiosity is held effectively over navapashana and its connection with the dreams and illusions foreseen by the father's character, the significance of it, is revealed in later stages. It is undoubtedly Raghanna's show all the way as a disturbed father and his concern over the safety of his daughter. That apart, Anupama Gowda puts up an impressive act through her lively and energetic performance, one as a journalist and another as an archeological officer!

    Naveen Krishna, who played the lead role in Actor, directed by Dayal and produced by K M Veeresh, has written dialogues to this one. He deserves appreciation for conveying the struggling mind of a disturbed father through crispy and meaningful words.

    Whereas Rockstar Rohith as a detective and a lover plays a vital role. Director turned actor Shivamani makes a special appearance in a short but an effective role. Overall,

    Thrayambakam is a good infotainment loaded with history, emotion, thriller and an interesting tale to watch out for. Do not miss this one from Dayal, as he leaves you all pleasantly surprised in the end.

    ಆ ಕರಾಳ ರಾತ್ರಿ. ಮುಂದಿನ ವಾರ ತೆರೆಗೆ ಬರುತ್ತಿರುವ ಸಿನಿಮಾ. ಚಿತ್ರದ ನಾಯಕಿ ಅನುಪಮಾ ಗೌಡ. ಅಕ್ಕ ಸೀರಿಯಲ್ ಖ್ಯಾತಿಯಿಂದ ಬಿಗ್‍ಬಾಸ್ ಮನೆ ಸೇರಿದ್ದ ಅನುಪಮಾ ಗೌಡಗೆ, ಬಿಗ್‍ಬಾಸ್ ಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಈ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಆಫರ್ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿತ್ತು. ಆಗ ಬಿಗ್‍ಬಾಸ್ ಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಇದ್ದ ದಯಾಳ್, ಅಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಕಥೆ ಹೇಳಿ ಅನುಪಮಾ ಗೌಡ ಹಾಗೂ ಜೆಕೆ ಅವರನ್ನು ಕಮಿಟ್ ಮಾಡಿಸಿದ್ದರು. ಅದರಂತೆಯೇ ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ಬಿಗ್‍ಬಾಸ್ ಮನೆಯಿಂದ ಹೊರಬಂದ ಮೇಲೆ ಶುರುವಾದ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಆ ಕರಾಳ ರಾತ್ರಿ.

    ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನದು ಸಿಕ್ಕಾಪಟ್ಟೆ ಬೋಲ್ಡ್ ಕ್ಯಾರೆಕ್ಟರ್. ಪಾತ್ರದ ಸಂಭಾಷಣೆಯೂ ಸಿಕ್ಕಾಪಟ್ಟೆ ಖಡಕ್. ಡೈರೆಕ್ಟ್ ಹಿಟ್. ಸಿನಿಮಾದ ನಟನೆಯನ್ನೇ ಬಿಡಬೇಕು ಎಂದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದವಳಿಗೆ `ಆ ಕರಾಳ ರಾತ್ರಿ'ಯ ಸ್ಕ್ರಿಪ್ಟ್ ತುಂಬಾ ಹಿಡಿಸಿತು. ಮುಂದೆ ನನಗೆ ಇಂಥಾ ಪಾತ್ರ ಸಿಗುವುದೋ ಇಲ್ಲವೋ ಗೊತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಹೇಳಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ಧಾರೆ ಅನುಪಮಾ ಗೌಡ.

    ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿರುವುದು ನಾಲ್ಕೇ ಪಾತ್ರ. ಆದರೆ, ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕ ಆ ಪಾತ್ರಗಳ ಜೊತೆಯಲ್ಲೇ ತಾನೂ ಸಾಗುತ್ತಾನೆ. ದಯಾಳ್ ಆ ರೀತಿ ಕಥೆ ಹೇಳಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಅನ್ನೋದು ಅನುಪಮಾ ಅವರು ದಯಾಳ್ ಅವರಿಗೆ ಕೊಡೋ ಸರ್ಟಿಫಿಕೇಟ್.
