Readers Write In #474: The deceptive world of Gargi

August 9, 2022

14

By Shyam VS Gargi is cinematic craft at its best. But that’s not all. For starters, Gargi is a creative crafting. Everything in the movie, from acting, music to sound design was realistic, thanks to the live-recorded sound of the film, which plays a huge role in passing on the movie’s emotions to the audience. […]

Anup Bhandari’s visually stunning ‘Vikrant Rona’, starring Kichcha Sudeepa, is underwhelming due to the unfocused writing

July 28, 2022

5

Spoilers ahead… What’s toned up is the swag quotient, which is at complete odds with the mood and tonality and atmosphere the main story needs.. Anup Bhandari’s Vikrant Rona contains a few elements we found in the writer-director’s first film, RangiTaranga. Supernatural happenings in a place named Kamarottu. A tragedy involving a well. References to […]

Islahuddin’s ‘Nodi Swamy Ivanu Irode Heege’, on Zee5 and starring Rishi, is a tedious try at non-stop quirkiness

July 22, 2022

1

Spoilers ahead… The film wants to be a black comedy about a heartbroken man who is clinically depressed, but it never finds the right tone.  What right do we have to end our life? This question appears at the beginning of Nodi Swamy Ivanu Irode Heege, written and directed by Islahuddin NS. And the person […]

Sai Pallavi and Kaali Venkat are in top form in Gautham Ramachandran’s ‘Gargi’, a beautifully made drama about a woman’s fight for justice

July 14, 2022

11

Spoilers ahead… This is creative teamwork of the finest kind – not just because it’s such a well-crafted film, but because it’s such an old and familiar story that WHAT is being told has to be supplemented with HOW it is being told. In Gautham Ramachandran’s Gargi, Sai Pallavi plays a teacher. In her first […]

Rakshit Shetty and the labrador are terrific in Kiranraj K’s ‘777 Charlie’, but the film’s ambition is not matched by the execution

June 10, 2022

2

Spoilers ahead… Each episode should lead organically to the next one, but we get the feel of standalone scenes, some of which could be cut with no harm to this overlong movie. The premise of Kiranraj K’s 777 Charlie is summed up in the first lines we hear: If you are lucky, a dog will […]

Rahul PK’s ‘Sakutumba Sametha’ plays like an easy-breezy rom-com, but it’s more: a beautifully written choreography of conflict

May 20, 2022

1

Spoilers ahead… The film is not just about the relationship between the boy and the girl. The film is about relationships in general. At first, I thought I was watching an easy-breezy rom-com. A boy from Bengaluru has met a girl on an online matrimony portal. They are days away from the marriage, when she […]

In ‘KGF: Chapter Two’, director Prashant Neel and his star Yash deliver a superior, epic sequel

April 14, 2022

7

Spoilers ahead… The film works at two levels. One, we get a huge action spectacle with inventive set pieces. And two, we get a style-filled masala movie, filled with whistle-worthy moments. Prashanth Neel returns as writer-director in KGF: Chapter 2, starring Yash as the gold-hearted gangster named Rocky. But first, a recap. The first chapter […]
