  • Bombay Mitai Movie Review

    bombay mitai image

    Many films leave you with mixed emotions. Bombay Mitai tries to leave behind only sweet memories. Debutant director Chandramohan tries and is successful to a large extent. Though the suggestion of threes title is towards the girl in the lead role, the film has a good message about friendship. The biggest advantage of the film is its taut screenplay which restricts the film to just two hours. In a regular director's hands two fights and two more songs would have been added and the film pushed to its limits.

    Bombay Mitai is a travel film in which much of the narrative is in movement. Good locations are chosen which makes it visually appealing.

    Three friend are going for another friend's birthday and they take along a girl who wants to explore Karnataka. All three immediately fall in love with her leading to hilarious situations. But the film takes a serious turn at the interval and all the bonds of friendships are tested to the limits. Even then the film continues to have a undercurrent of humour in it.

    Even though three are a limited number of characters in the film all off them are utilised to the maximum potential. The main characters are those of Chikkanna, Disha, Niranjan and Vikram. All four are given very good roles and they execute them perfectly. Except for the actor doing the role of the inspector all others give a professional performance. Bombay Mitai is one of the best new age movies in Kannada.

  • Raj Vishnu Movie Review, Chitraloka Rating 4/5

    raj vishnu review

    Raj Vishnu starring Sharan, Chikkanna and a host of comedy stars of Sandlwood is a film for the entire family. The film has laughs every minute and every scene. It is not an unusual film but a good comedy entertainer all along. All the events in the film are made for comedy and you will get to laugh even in the action scenes. That is the way the film has been conceived. 

    The film is about a young man strangely named Raj Vishnu on two of the late popular actors of Kannada. It is because his father is a Vishnuvardhan and his future father-in-law is a fan of Rajkumar. His father and his friend part ways and when Raj Vishnu grows up he has to woo his childhood girl all over again. But without good education, he does not have a good chance.

    His grandfather comes to his rescue and decides to fund his business but that requires bringing together the family members who are spread across the world. Meantime there is a local bad man who wants to take over the property of the grandfather. How Raj Vishnu saves the family property and wins the girl forms the rest of the story. 

    Sharan has given a superb performance. Chikkanna as Shankar Nag follows him like a shadow. The comedy between them and in trio with Sadhu Kokila in four roles is a laugh riot. Other actors who add comedy to the film include Suchendra Prasad, Srinivas Murthy and others. Newcomer Vaibhavi Shandilya makes an impressive debut and is a treat to watch. 

    There is some good music by Arjun Janya and technically the film is excellent with good cinematography, background sound and editing. Go watch Raj Vishnu for excellent comedy and wholesome entertaining fun. It is a film for the whole family without any vulgur meaning dialogues or jokes. It is decent and clicks for everyone. Sharan has one more success to his name as also director Madesh.

    Chitraloka Rating - 4/5

    Vikram Arya starrer 'Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli' is all set to be released in the month of April. Jayanna Films is distributing the film and the film will be censored soon. 'Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli' is the debut film of hero Vikram Arya and he himself is producing the film in his original name Namdev Bhattar. A Venugopal who has directed a couple of films has directed the film apart from scripting it. Vijay Bharathi who died recently has composed the music for the film.

  • Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli Movie Review

    Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli image

    The current trend in Sandalwood is of horror films and many horror films have been released off late. This week's release 'Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli' comes as a fresh air with lot of entertainment ingredients tucked in it.

    'Tale Bachkolli Powder Hachkolli' tells the story of two youths Jayasurya (Vikram Arya) and Indra (Chikkanna) who plans to commit suicide unable to face their personal problems. Somehow they are saved and given a job of Loan Recovery agents of a bank. They are given an assignment to recover a big loan from an underworld don. What all does the duo do to recover the loan from the don must be seen in theaters near you.

    The title suggests that it is a comic film. However, 'TBPH' cannot be termed as a comedy film alone. The first half of the film is comic and the second half turns to be a serious with loads of sentiments. While the first half makes the people laugh, the second half surely turns the audience sentimental.

    Vikram Arya makes his debut through this film and he has done a commendable job in his first film itself. Arya's acting and dancing skill are quite promising. Chikkanna does a good job. However, it is Shobharaj who does a wonderful job in acting. Bullet Prakash is wasted. Nikitha and Aman Grewal has nothing much to do. Vijayabharathi's songs are wonderfully picturised by cameraman Manu.

    Chitraloka Rating - 3/5


    'TBPH' is a good watch. Don't miss this one.
