 Dhananjay and Sruthi Hariharan are playing the lead roles in the movie. Raate is the love story of two lovers Raja(Dhananjay) and Rani(Sruthi Hariharan). Raate(Rhatee) in colloquial language means ‘pulley’. There is an supreme power which plays an important role in everyone’s life . Likewise, AP Arjun has written a good story which revolves around the importance of a ‘pulley’. Read the review below.. Story: Raate(Rhaatee) is a love story two unconditional lovers Raja(Dhananjay)and Rani(Sruthi Hariharan). Raja plays a cable operator, and Rani plays a girl next door in the movie. But, why did the director give the title for a love story as Raate? Because it is not just a love story. The story gets a new twist when Raja and Rani come to Bengaluru to do their wedding shopping and also to watch Darshan’s movie, Sangolli Rayanna. Sruthi Hariharan plays a die-hard fan of Challenging star Darshan in Raate. What happens after Raja and Rani reach Bengaluru? What is the twist in the movie? To know the twists in the tale, watch Raate today. Cast Performance: Firstly, nativity of the characters in the movie is fantabulous. The viewers will be occupied throughout the movie. Secondly, Dhananjay and Sruthi are best at their performances. Though they have paired up for the first time in Raate, they portray a very sweet-cute couple in the movie and both steal the show. Bullet Prakash definitely needs an appreciation for depicting such a good emotional character in Raate. Suchendra Prasad plays a Police Officer in the movie and he has given full justice for his character. Jayammanna Maga fame Uday Raghav rocks playing an antagonist in the movie. Music V Harikrishna’s songs composition and BGM is yet another supportive element in Raate. Songs Raja Rani, title song Raate and Sudeep’s Jod Haaki will be the super-hit songs of 2015. Technical Aspects: Cinematography and screenplay goes hand in hand. Raate(Rhaatee) will definitely be a hatrick hit movie in AP Arjun’s direction. Overall: Raate(Rhaatee) a perfect treat to Ugadi. Dhananjay and Sruthi Hariharan steals the show.

Krishna Leela Kannada box Office

In KANNADA on March 23, 2015 at 5:38 am


Krishna-Leela shows what team effort can do. And this team is exceptional and Shashank has led them well. One of those rare films where almost everything falls in place and the audience can’t have enough. We may have loved to have more dramatic end, but the journey over two-and-a-half hours is such a joy that you would have long made up your mind to watch it again.

Lovable characters (not just the lead pair), taut screenplay and an utterly believable story make Krishna-Leela a riveting affair.
Ajai has become synonymous with the characters named ‘Krishna’ which incidentally started with Shashank’s Krishnan Love Story. With Krishna-Leela, Ajai is confident enough to become a producer. Krishna-Leela has some of the best characters we have seen in Kannada films for a while. Shashank has proved his mettle before in this aspect of filmmaking. Remember the amazing characters of the doctor and the police officer in his Bachchan? If that was made for great characters in a commercial potboiler, in Krishna-Leela, he creates some of the most realistic characters from the middle and lower-middle-class families.

The characters played by Achyuth Kumar, Shobraj, Rangayana Raghu and others are seen to be believed. Every role/character in the film stands out for its uniqueness and individuality.

Ajay plays a cab driver who has the family responsibility on his shoulders. He manages it like a typical responsible son would. A college girl (of course with her own specimens of a family) tries a prank on an unknown person who turns out to be our hero. Their invisible friendship that develops while chatting on the phone takes a dramatic turn halfway through the film. What you watch turns out to be an endearing romantic story that never strays away from reality.

Full credit to Shashank for the way he styled the film. Ajai has one of the best roles of his career. Among the supporting cast, Achyuth should be vying for awards next year. A good film has much homework behind it and it shows. The technical department has done a brilliant job, giving the film that extra zing.

Rudra Tandava Kannada box Office

“Rudra Tandava” – Exclusive Movie Review (Kannada)
Remake of Tamil Film “Pandiya”

Ratings – 3.5 Stars
Box Office – Good Start

Basking in the success of Raja Huli, director Guru Deshpande has become successful in bringing another tough subject of Tamil cinema to Kannada. Rudra Tandava, the remake of Tamil hit Pandiya Nadu features Yuva Samrat Chiranjeevi Sarja and Sizzling beauty Radhika Kumarswamy in the lead roles. Though the storyline is predictable, the movie is worth watching once. Guru Deshpande has made the necessary changes in the screenplay to suit the requirements of native audience.

Rudra Tandava deals with the story of a common man (Chiranjeevi Sarja), who falls in love with a school teacher (Radhika Kumarswamy). Chiru’s brother (Kumar Govind), a honest government employee ruffles feathers with mafia don Narasimha (Ravishankar), who rules Kolar with the iron fist. The murder of Kumar Govind will make Chiru’s father (Girish Karnad) and Chiru to take revenge on Narasimha separately. What happens next? How will the father-son take revenge on Narasimha? Forms the rest of the story.

Compared to his any other previous movies, Chiranjeevi Sarja has given his best for the role. By default Radhika Kumarswamy is an eye candy to see on screen. Beside these two leads, Ravishankar steals the show with his terrific performance in the role of mafia don. His acting in the movie deserves appreciation. Girish Karnad, Kumar Govind, Chikanna, Krishna and others are commendable in the supporting roles of the movie.

Sensational music director V Harikrishna has scored catchy album and thrilling background score.

Guru Deshpande is the winner with the good Direction once again. The tuned screenplay and changes has made the movie to provide a different experience.

Final Verdict: A movie to be watched for the weekend.

“Mythri” – Kannada box office

In KANNADA on February 28, 2015 at 11:34 am


“Mythri” – Exclusive Movie Review (Kannada)

Ratings – 4 Stars
Box Office – Slow Start will Pick up Big From Today 2nd day because of Positive Reviews & Excellent WOM from Audience.

ACTORS: Puneeth Rajkumar, Mohanlal, Jagadish, Atul Kulkarni,
DURATION : 2 Hours & 17 Minutes.

The release of the Kannada film Mythri today is special for director Giriraj, who is elated at having worked on a realistic movie. He tells us just why the film, which stars Aditya, Mohanlal, Puneeth Rajkumar, Atul Kulkarni and Archana in the lead, is a must-watch. l Puneeth plays himself in the film and has an hour of screen time. Yet, this is not a typical Puneeth film and will not have him spout punch dialogues, break into song and dance or fight thugs.

l The story has been woven together from real-life incidents that Giriraj came across — most notably that of youngsters serving life imprisonment. “Mythri transpires through the point of view of a youngster, his lost childhood and the characters that he comes across in his life,” he says. l A stellar star cast, comprising Mohanlal, Puneeth and Atul share screen space for the first time. Add to that music by maestro Ilaiyaraaja, and you have a heady combination. l The treatment of the film and the story itself is very realistic. “We believe in what we are showing onscreen,” says the filmmaker, adding that there is a social message that will be difficult for parents and elders to ignore.

What a bounce back by director Giriraj! After the engrossing Jatta, he made the forgettable Advaitha. But, Mythri is, without doubt, one of the most sensible films Sandalwood has churned out in recent years. There is no item girl doing a navel show, there are no fantasy songs where the lead pair strut their impossible fashion, there are no fights where the hero kicks cars and villains out to the stratosphere. And yet Mythri is not an art film that was made for awards.

It is silver screen magic in its truest sense that does not treat audience as dumb people who seem to be in need for superlative stimulants.

All along during the making of the film, the only talking point was whether Puneeth has enough screen space to please his fans.Malayalam superstar Mohanlal was projected as the protagonist. But in reality, Puneeth is on screen throughout the movie while Mohanlal is in an extended guest role. But the real hero of the film is the young Aditya. Along with another youngster Jagadish, he steals the show and once the film builds itself up, you are not wondering whether it is Puneeth or Mohanlal on the screen.
That’s what enchanting scripts can do.

Giriraj narrates the story of a juvenile delinquent who makes a reluctant bid to bring himself out of misery. The screenplay gives every character a meaningful presence and through them the story is propelled forward. A rough edge there and an unpolished shot here do not divert attention from the engrossing watch Mythri provides. At the interval, you suspect that the film may turn out to be a Slumdog Millionaire clone. No, the director knows where it’s clearly headed.

When Mohanlal enters the screen well into the second half, an obvious question is answered, but with an unexpected twist. It is too good a film to have its story revealed in a review, but you can rest assured that Mythri will leave you satisfied.

Giriraj chooses his subjects and characters well. Unlike regular commercial film-makers, he shows reality in human form. There are no black-and-white characters. Of interest in this film is the fact that even the two superstars Puneeth and Mohanlal have shades of grey.

Puneeth plays himself and without making it obvious, his image is given a subtle boost. Mohanlal as a scientist thirsting for revenge puts the stamp of his presence in the film.

Bhavana and Archana are little more than guest roles. Ravi Kale cannot be faulted and it is hard to think of another actor who could have bettered Atul Kulkarni. Again it is Aditya and Jagadish who are the real stars. Jagadish particularly has an effortless attitude that is perfect.

Ilaiyaraaja’s tunes let you hear and understand the lyrics which are powerful.

And as is with the veteran, he knows when not to make the music intrusive. The film is not made on a shoe-string budget but neither does it have a ‘star budget.’ However, it hardly matters as you can immerse yourself and be part of the film that grows on you. Giriraj deserves all the applause for his conviction and narrative style. This one is a total delight.
