The one releasing for the end of the year 2012 'Nandeesha' lifted from Malayalam comedy flick made in 2003 'Thilakkam' is another mediocre film.
For the comedy hero image of Komal Kumar this is not befitting. Either comedy in bizarre of scenes or funny dialogues - trump cards of Komal Kumar previous hits is somehow not found in 'Nandeesha'. What is expected from comedy heroes should be rolled inside the camera for cash registers ringing. Like the usual run of the mill hero picks the roles does not suit Komal Kumar. Coming after 10 years this is such a usual flick.
The content remains the same from the original cinema 'Thilakkam' written by Rafi Macartin. Racy numbers from Hamsalekha and good cinematography from Selvam lifts the film. The performances are quite OK but instead of serious comedy the series of rib tickling scenes were required.
Believed as Nandeesha (Komal Kumar) has got a tragic past. His father kept him in the orphan house and when the affectionate teacher Nanjundaswamy (Srinivasamurthy) was found as the right man the partially mentally retarded Nandeesha reaches the village with some ulterior motive of his father.
In the village everyone believes that Nandeesha is found and the mental stress in Nandeesha makes him to behave awkwardly. In fact an artist makes the sketch from boy Nandeesha photo to the grown up Nandeesha photo that strengthen the bondage. As the turn of incidents lead to an accident Nandeesha recovers from mental stress. In the past life he is Vishnu owner of OK Television channel in Ooty. Vishnu and Sonia (Parul Yadav) progress the channel but the obstacle comes when Sonia makes an investigative story for a series of deaths happening. This irks the KP Pharmaceuticals to the helm. A plot is arranged to finish off Vishnu and Sonia. In the attack only Sonia dies from a steep fall but Vishnu receives a blow to his head. Vishnu father to save his son from further danger ward him off to a village.
Komal Kumar has not failed in delivering dialogues and giving good performance. His improvement from this film is good dance. As a producer he has given good production values, locations and artists for the film.
Parul Yadav from Pyaar Ge Agbuttaithe....in 'Govindayanamaha' with Komal Kumar is an actress with potentiality. She appears in the second half but looks very sweet. Malavika as the village belle is quite OK. Ramesh Bhat, Vijayalakshmi and Srinivasamurthy rendered able support.
Balu Bandre Batalli Hodi....Hrudaya yes andre Kisssali Hodi....is a racy and peppy number from Hamsalekha. There are two others impressive tunes from the talented senior music director.
Selvam camera angles are a treat to watch. Gokak Falls looks as good as Jog Falls show in 'Mungaru Male'.
This is a film with sentiments, action, mixed with comedy. Worth a free time watch!
