  • Badmash Movie Review

    badmash movie image

    Badmash is an unusual experience with an unusual story. The main plot of the film revolves around a big red diamond from ancient Indian history. Though it is fictitious an elaborate story has been woven around it and it becomes central to the plot. The film starts with the story of the diamond called Vijaya Vaidhurya and how it has shaped history being a powerful omen. Then the film moves to the current time.

    There are two plots running simultaneously. In one, a politician called King (Achuyth) is making a bid to become the chief minister. He is a cunning politician and as the home minister manages to use the media to his advantage. On the other hand there is Badmash, the hero who is working for a liquor baron who owns a cricket team. King is using money generated in the cricket betting for politics. He comes in clash with the liquor baron. King does all his work on the behest of an astrologer. 

    As the story unfolds, all the plots clash and the various suspense elements are revealed one by one. There is not one but quite a few twists and turns. This makes for an engrossing watch. 

    There is also a lovely romantic plot with Dhananjayand Sanchita Shetty. How these two are related to the sinister plot of King and how they become pawns but manage to come out triumph due to Dhananjay's 'Games' forms the unusual subject. 

    The film also has some good songs that are peppered throughout the film. The film also has some amazing camera work. The making is top class and the new director shows immense promise. Dhananjay makes a big mark with this film and his screen presence is seen to be believed. His dialogue delivery and stunt scenes take him to the top league. 

    Badmash has all the necessary elements needed for a mass masala entertainer. It is one more good film by newcomers and not to be missed. 

    Chitraloka Rating 3/5

  • Book My Show Continues Its Tyrant Against Kannada Movies

    book my show continues its tyrant against kananda movies

    Adding more woes to Kannada movies, the online booking platform Book My Show is yet again in news, and this time for another blunder it has committed. In an glaring mistake, BMS has uploaded the photo of Ms. Asha Rani, wife of Action King Arjun Sarja with the caption Nivedita, who is the actual leading actress in the movie Popcorn Monkey Tiger. 

    That's not all, the website has yesteryear actress Rekha's photo in the place of actress Sparsha Rekha in the star cast slot for the Popcorn Monkey Tiger Kannada movie. After facing flak for its blunder, BMS has rectified its mistake by replacing the actual photos of the actresses who are casted in the Popcorn Monkey Tiger Kannada movie.

    The BMS has been in the eye of storm with regard to Kannada movies in the recent past after a series of Kannada filmmakers accusing it of undermining Kannada movies. Several Kannada producers have openly complained against BMS for their deliberate act against their movies despite being rated high by the critics and the audience.

    Some of them accuse that the online platform has been functioning at its own whims and fancies favoring only a few based on monetary purpose.

    "Unfortunately several Kannada producers are hiring online promoters from Hyderabad, Chennai and Mumbai even for promotions within Karnataka, who lack passion or knowledge about Kannada film industry. All they do is copy paste data entry jobs in many instances," the experts say.

    They add that the time has come for Kannada filmmakers to introspect on whether they are really benefiting from hiring online promoters from outside Karnataka.

    After Dia and Gentleman, the sad state of affairs continues with Sagutha Doora Doora on BMS as the filmmaker raising strong objections too while asking the film body to intervene formulating a mechanism against such oppressive factors acting against the growth of Kannada movies.
