  • Adhyaksha In America Movie Review: Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5

    adhyaksha in america movie review

    The 'president' of comedy - Sharaan is back with another rib tickling entertainer. But this time the action is set mostly in America where he is joined with Sadhu Kokila, Rangayana Raghu and others. The sizzling Ragini Dwivedi makes the two-and-a-half hour fun ride look beautiful on the screen along with Sharaan, who is at his usual best with his trademark act.

    Unlike the five year old Adyaksha wherein Sharaan was paired with Chikkanna, here, he is with Comedy Khiladigalu winner Shivaraj K R Pete. That apart, everything remains the same such as humour and all the fun elements which the brand Sharaan usually guarantees his audience.

    The escapades of this American version of Adyaksha kick-starts when Ullas, the protagonist is seen abandoned on the streets of Seattle in the U.S., before he is rescued by the character played by Sadhu Kokila. Soon, the tale goes backwards which fills up the first part of the movie.

    It's a plain, simple and carefree comedy which Yoganandh Muddhan has delivered in Sharaan's style. Ragini is a pleasant surprise as Nandini, wherein she plays the role of an alcohol addict who comes down to India to marry Ullas, who is coincidentally a childhood friend of hers. 

    While Ullas has his eyes set on becoming rich by marrying an American girl after ditching another girl in his hometown, but fate lands him a tricky situation. The rollercoaster of fun and mischiefs continues when Ullas really falls in love with Nandini. When everything goes smoothly, Ullas faces divorce from Nandini after his initial rich plans is revealed. Will he lose Nandini, is what keeps the humour going until the end.

    Along with comedy, it has a good and a meaningful message mixed in love and alcohol! Amused over the strange combination, then find it out by yourself at a theatre near you as the fun-filled president is back with a bang from America.

  • Anjaniputra Review; Chitraloka Rating 4/5

    anjaniputra review

    What the fans asked for has been delivered by director Harsha and producer NM Kumar in Anjaniputra. The film starring Puneeth Rajkumar is one of the best films released this year in Sandalwood.  The film is a perfect mix of action, comedy, family sentiments and romance. It has everything fans ordered. 

    The film starts with Puneeth playing a moneylender in a market area of the city. It is a surprisingly different role for him. A girl who he meets accidentally in a mall becomes his love. But she hurts him with her words. But soon she realities that the man she is in love with is worth more than she thought. He is not only a nice person but also from a very rich family. Flashback reveals that due to some problem of misunderstanding he has to leave his family. 

    Ramya Krishnan plays Puneeth's mother. He has a big family. A villain is also in the surrounding who kills anyone for money. He is also the same person who is troubling the hero's family in the village. This pits Puneeth (Raj) against the villain. During this time Raj also saves the life of a top police officer and his wife from the hands of the villain. From this point onwards the villain and his men are trying to find Raj and kill him. When they realise that he is from the same family in the village they try to harm everyone. How does Raj save his family, his girlfriend and her family and himself? That is the story. 

    The film moves from one action packed adventure to another. There is also so much of comedy and family drama. Rightly Puneeth is cast as the 'family man'. He is the perfect actor for this role. He carries off the role of a family person, lover and action hero with perfection. Rashmika Mandanna has bagged another good role. There is also a very good performance from her. 

    Apart from Puneeth the other highlights of the film are the comedy scenes involving Chikkanna, Sadhu Kokila and others. The music by Ravi Basrur is top class. His BGM is also stunning. The cinematography is another high point of the film. Be it the locations in India or foreign locations, it is captured brilliantly. Everything is perfectly done in Anjaniputra. Among the actors, Ramya Krishna, Mukesh Tiwari and Vijaya Kashi make a positive impression. 

    Anjaniputra is all set to become a big hit going by the way it has perfectly blended everything. Director Harsha keeps the momentum of the film going strong and never lets it slip for even a second. It is like watching a T20 match. 

    Chitraloka Rating - 4/5 

  • Striker Kannada Movie Review: Chitraloka Rating 3.5* /4

    striker movie review

    After an impressive Churikatte, Praveen Tej is back with yet another intelligently made crime thriller. What strikes the most in 'Striker’, is the manner in which the director Pavan Trivikram has given a new spin to the crime thriller, for an edge of the seat experience.

    Despite revolving around a murder and the suspense over whodunnit, the twist in the tale is a neatly webbed confusion over dream and reality take on it.

    The protagonist, portrayed by Praveen suffers from a mental disorder due to which he cannot differentiate between dream and reality, and in such circumstances he gets embroiled in a murder. Is the murder real or is it a figment of imagination of the protagonist, is the surprise element which keeps the audience hooked onto right till the end.

    Apart from the decent performances, Striker scores good with music. Sourav Loki, who has been making noise for his villainous avatars, delivers his best as a cop along with Dharamanna Kadur who gives the thriller the much needed humour. Shilpa Manjunath too shines bright in a pretty role. Striker is a good watch in the end which comes with an innovative touch to the set crime thriller.
