There is pretty good screenplay and dialogues from BA Madhu is well measured and timely. S.V. Babu has taken up the most essential film for the present genre.
Rakesh in his first film steals the show. In three stages he has shown improvisation and he is sure to be the potential hero of tomorrow. Poorna who played the role of Meena is a combination Genelia D'Souza and Tamil actress Meena. The fresh boys selected from talent search have given convincing performance. Thulasi Shivamani, Achyuth Rao and Srinivasa Prabhu and Sudha Belawadi pair given a touching performance. Sharan's comedy is an additional boon.
There is a boneless wonder in this film - Robo Ganesh. His skipping style closing two hands is a thrilling moment. The cinematography by Santosh Rai Pathaje is outstanding and it is surely going to be in contest for awards. The songs of Vardhan are well tuned. Namaskara Sir.... Hey Maga..... Than Thane Thane.....are written well, scored well and sung well.
Kannada film industry can proudly say that this is the best cinema for the constructive society.
Scoring - 9/10
