This is a tolerable remake film and above the mediocre level because of the tight narration and guessing moments. The protagonist Prajwal, dynamic prince of Kannada cinema has got a good scope to exhibit his skill. He should select this kind of screenplay oriented films in his career to keep going like his father Dynamic hero Devaraj, who is almost three decades old in Kannada filmdom. What was seen by Telugu audience in 2006, Kannada audiences are seeing in 2011, August 12 in Karnataka - Telugu Ranam of Gopichand is Kannada 'Bhadra' starring Prajwal Devaraj.
Director Mahesh Rao has not only played it up with interesting and intriguing screenplay but also with Shanker Billamane dialogues the film turns out be interesting. The usage of 'Mandya' the land from where Ambarish hails and the power of people from such people are effectively used.
Prajwal Devaraj many shades, Sampath stunning looks, Daisy Shah the major bottleneck of the film, 'Bhadra' is also good for the family audience.
Bhadra (Prajwal Devaraj) is a happy go lucky youngster. His intelligence fools the inspector of his native place. That also becomes very costly for Bhadra. His father asks him to move to city for studies. Joining college Bhadra is strong enough to protect him. He becomes the darling of his college campus soon. When he turns as approver for one of the killings in the streets and falls in love with Kavya (Daisy Shan) sister of cruel don of city - the problems prevail on his head.
Bhadra is asked to leave city after a furious attack on him by Naga brother of Kavya. Bhadra takes it as an insult and like any other hero on Indian screen he with stand the opposition. In the climax Bhadra asks Naga to put him down. Naga is given sharp edge weapon by Bhadra. The three chances Naga fail to make use. Bhadra indicate that love and affection is important and not rowdy activity.
Prajwal struggled hard in the action scenes but his naughty nature on screen and romantic moments are attractive. He is good in dialogue delivery too. Daisy Shah is not a match for Prajwal. She looks older than Prajwal on screen. Mico Nagaraj, Sampath give a good support.
Sri Guru is a promising music director. Whether he has copied the original tunes from 'Ranam' Telugu remake or not is not known. Yet three are peppy tunes. The choreography is pleasant. The cinematography Jai Anand is high in standards. It is only at one place there is jerk but it is a competent job from the young cameraman.
Producer MN Kumar coming back to production after six years has picked the right one to entertain the film buffs.
