VIRAAT FILM REVIEW


download
Viraat is as commercial as a film can get. Our hero throws his shades at an advancing adversary, the guy falls over when it hits him. Darshan trows his tie at another and the guy goes flying for 10 feet. For a hardcore Darshan fan, this is how his films should be.

It is not Viraat, the character, but Darshan who is central to the film.

Though there are songs and fights at the drop of a hat, the plot is more like the TV reality show The Bachelor. Darshan is the most eligible bachelor in town, with a Rs 6,500 crore wealth, heart of gold and hands of steel. Three girls from different backgrounds fall in love with him. All three express their love in the same scene a little before the interval. Darshan takes time till the climax to tell us which one of the three he loves.

Three girls won’t produce 10 fight scenes, so there is our villain, Ravishankar, as a business rival, trying to outdo our hero and secure a thermal-power project from the government. Ravishankar has no chance. Each one of the hitmen he sends all through the film barely manage a crease on Darshan’s clothes. Yet, he tries and tries till he dies.

The film tries to entertain at all cost. There is double bonus in everything. Apart from the three leading ladies, there are also three comedy characters played by Sahdu Kokila, Bullet Prakash and Chidanand. Sadhu and Bullet get a song for themselves too. For every statement Ravishankar makes, Darshan gives him back three. But unless you are a fan wishing to see Darshan glorified in every scene, you may find the proceedings too tardy. The film has so much packed into it that it is an overdose.

The music is good and the Safety Pin song is the pick of the lot (though not featuring either Darshan or the three girls). The film has its moments but the film isn’t exactly a must-watch, except for the hero’s fans.

Last bus Review


xclusive Movie Review: “LAST BUS” Kannada.

Ratings – 4 Stars
Box Office – Average Start

ILLUSION!! This term has evoked filmmakers allover the world time and again. Human behavior at different conditions, activities in the mind, human psychology are always remained the hot topics for the progressive people in any film industry. While most of the reality shows are literally based on the same factors again. In that context, LAST BUS is a psychological thriller horror movie featuring a reality show.

The film will make you recall the memories of watching 2009 Kannada release Shishira & 2013 Hollywood film Oculus, but you will understand the necessity of such similarities with the films in this genre. The thrilling journey actually begins only when you get down from the bus, until then enjoy the beauty of Western Ghats.

Your eyes won’t believe that the picturesque nature you see on the screen is actually located in Karnataka, yes never seen before, you start cravings to see those locations in person. Cinematographer’s efforts in showing the nature as it is, cannot be undermined, he is brilliant even in the indoor arena.

Last Bus is a kind of film which takes time to settle to its genre, but when its done, the journey is more thrilling than you expect. Screenplay, art direction, VFX are outstanding, apart from the awesome work by cinematographer. Although each of the six actors that portray the role of victims have done their job, Narasimharaju duo & Meghashree are the winners. Picturization of the only song is very good.

Despite some minor errors, the film has displayed Director S D Aravind’s passion for cinema and his abilities to come up with good films. He is able to keep you engaged throughout. Mr. Aravind is also a winner as Music Composer.

Kannada Cinema’s experimental journey for 2016 begins. NOT TO BE MISSED.

But LAST BUS got effected by many Tamil Telugu movies & could not get proper screens and also only 2 evening shows in main theater that too only for 1 week as Airlift releasing in Abhinay next Friday.

KANNADA BOX OFFICE year 2015


The year 2015 was one of transformation and revelation for Sandalwood. Moving away from the conventional, there were movies, which succeeded not because the audience could get through them, but rather the films got through to the audience. Pathbreaking scripts, never-before-seen styles of filmmaking, simple but bold subjects, and crisp narratives overshadowed the usual success formula of star value.

Among the 131 films that released this year, one director who turned heads across the globe was Anup Bhandari with his debut Rangitaranga. The film elevated Sandalwood to a much higher pedestal with excellent support from Suri, Shashank, K M Chaitanya’s and B M Giriraj creative themes, Kendasampige, Krishna Leela, Aatagara and Mythri respectively. Director Naresh Kumar was welcomed with open arms for his comedy 1st Rank Raju. Sandalwood had another feather in the cap with Sanchari Vijay winning the National award for his role in Nanu Avanala Avalu. The film was directed by B S Lingadevaru. Ganapa, directed by Prabhu Srinivas, and Bombay Mittai did not have any expectations but had their rewards.

However, the series of box office collection did prove that star value is still not outrightly rejected. What started with Puneeth Rajkumar’s Rana Vikrama, Upendra’s Uppi2, Sudeep’s Ranna, Darshan’s Airavatha, Sriimurali’s Rathaavara and the recent Masterpiece starring Yash, the year ended on a positive note for the actors, their fans and even the producers.

Films with moderate success were Kushi Kushiyagi, Ramleela, Siddharata, Dove among others. While a few films did create some major controversies before its release but were also biggest let downs of the year. They were Upendra starrer Shivam directed by Srinivas Raju, Buguri starring Ganesh and directed by MD Sridhar, Yogaraj Bhat’s Vaastu Prakakara, PC Shekar’s Arjuna, Satish Pradhan’s Abhinetri, Priya Beliappa’s Ring Road Suma, Raate and Rocket among many others.

The year also brought in some new faces — Nirup Bhandari did create a craze with his debut Rangitaranga. Vinay Rajkumar made his entry into tinsel town with Siddhartha and joining him is another young talent Gurunandan with his debut 1st Rank Raju. We also had Anushree and Mayuri making a transistion from the small screen to the silver screen.

Ram Gopal Varma’s Killing Veerappan


download

Ever since the night of October 18, 2004, when forest brigand Veerappan was killed, there have been many unsubstantiated rumours, or let’s say theories about what actually took place that night. Veerappan was killed, yes. But, how did the Special Task Force manage to lure him out of his inviolable forest?

Did Veerappan venture out for an eye operation or to meet Prabhakaran from the LTTE? Ram Gopal Varma’s Killing Veerappan, starring Shivarajkumar,picks up one such theory and presents a stylised, RGV-ised version of events.

“This is the truth as I know it,” says RGV as the film opens.

The film begins directly with the planning of Operation Cocoon. In reality, this was a mission headed by the Commander of the Tamil Nadu Special Task Force, K. Vijay Kumar, who masterminded the final assault on Veerappan.

Shivarajkumar plays the Superintendent of Police in Vijay Kumar’s team. Discernibly, his character is modelled on SP Senthamarai Kannan, who is believed to have actually planned the entire mission. In RGV’s version, Kannan is a non-conformist, one who would willingly flout rules as long as Veerappan is captured.

The plot tracks the team’s attempts to corner the bandit. Shreya (Parul Yadav) is hired to befriend Muthulakshmi (Yagna Shetty) so that the STF can get closer to her husband.

The goal is clear: Veerappan has to be lured out of the forest. How the team manages this forms the rest of the plot.

There is little doubt that Killing Veerappan looks slick and is full of engaging camera work. The casting of Sandeep Bharadwaj as Veerappan too is pretty spot on.

Where the film fumbles, however, is in the delineation of its characters. The story, the protagonists and the outcome is already known. What the audience is really interested in is the ‘how’ of it all, even if it is a theory. But, RGV relies on us to know who Veerappan was and why Operation Cocoon was important. The narration jumps back and forth to include a few brief flashback sequences. What RGV does is present a simplified good versus bad guy plot. But that we already know!

Of course, he tells us that the good guy is not entirely virtuous, just that he happens to be batting for the morally right side.We needed to know Veerappan, his gang, his idols and his relationship with Tamil extremists better in order to understand why he left the forest that night.

Shreya and Muthulakshmi are the characters that are least developed. We have no idea who Shreya is and why she agrees to be an informer. And, Muthulakshmi’s rather complex relationship with the bandit is barely touched upon. And this is a tragedy, for Yagna is a good performer.

The film, of course, will be a treat for the fans of Shivarajkumar because Killing Veerappan is as much about the star that he is. The personal story of his father, Rajkumar’s kidnap, intersects with that of Kannan’s passion for killing the bandit and at times it feels like it is Shivarajkumar and not Kannan settling scores, albeit cinematically. Killing Veerappan is sensational, thrilling even, but not convincing enough for it is more about Shivarajkumar than about Veerappan.

Masterpiece” minted 16.6 crores


“Masterpiece” has made a business of Rs 16.6 crore in its opening weekend in Karnataka. The movie had earned Rs 6 crore on the first day. Due to the early morning shows and the increase in the screen counts in the multiplexes, the Kannada movie made huge business on the release day.

The response remained the same on the second and the third days as “Masterpiece” minted Rs 3.6 and Rs 3 crore respectively to take its three-day box office collection to Rs 12.6 crore. On Sunday, the Kannada movie added Rs 4 crore to end its first weekend at Rs 16.6 crore in Karnataka.

Producer Jayanna confirmed the same to IBTimes and said, “We are happy that a Kannada movie is doing so well. The response has been earth-shattering and “Masterpiece” seems like have broken several records.”

On reminding “Masterpiece” dominating biggies like “Dilwale”, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, and “Bajirao Mastani”, starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, he added, “Nobody had imagined that our ‘Mr and Mrs Ramachari’ would survive in theatres when it was released against Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’ last year. This time, ‘Masterpiece’ has overpowered biggies from other languages in the state.”

In the Bengaluru-Kolar-Tumkur region, “Masterpiece” has clearly beaten “Dilwale”, “Bajirao Mastani” and some other big films.

On Saturday and Sunday, “Masterpiece” went houseful in almost all the shows that was screened in Bengaluru. The Kannada movie had a total of 280+ shows, “Bajirao Mastani” had its half the shows and “Dilwale” was reduced to 140+ shows in two days.

However, trade reports said that Yash becomes another Ajith in Sandalwood.

Masterpiece first day at the box office


Yash-starrer “Masterpiece” has done a smashing business on the download. The Kannada movie was reportedly released in about 240+ screens in Karnataka and approximately 30 screens outside the state.

Speaking to IBTimes India, producer Jayanna said: “‘Masterpiece’ has got an extraordinary opening in Karnataka. The film was planned to released in 240 screens in the state but due to the unprecedented demand for tickets in some places outside Bengaluru, we have released in additional 30 screens.”

Jayanna also claimed: “I have not received the complete reports yet. But as per our estimation, “Masterpiece” might have earned around Rs 6 crore, which will be a new record in Sandalwood for the opening-day collection.”

A theatre-owner who had screened “Vedalam” in Bengaluru said “Masterpiece” has become the “Vedalam” of Sandalwood: “What the Ajith-starrer did for Tamil box office, ‘Masterpiece’ has done for Kannada films on the release day!”

“Vedalam” had turned out to become the highest grosser of Kollywood of all time, raking Rs 15.5 crore on the opening day. It broke all the existing records, including that of Rajinikanth’s “Lingaa”, which raked in Rs 12.8 crore, and Vijay’s “Kaththi”, which earned Rs 12.5 crore, on the first day at Tamil box office.

Meanwhile, Jayanna, who is obviously stunned by the response his latest movie has received, hopes the film improves its performance on Friday, the Christmas holiday.
