Maryadhe in Kannada means respect. To get the respect of the audience the film should be a hilarious one from comedy king Komalkumar the younger brother of famous comedy hero Jaggesh.
The turnout till interval is not enjoyable and entertaining for the audience and expectation of 'Respect' dilutes. Komalkumar should have maintained the histrionics and dialogue delivery to take the attention till interval. This is not what happened in 'Maryade Ramanna' a remake of SS Rajamouli Telugu film 'Maryadhe Ramanna' released in the last year.
It is a frame to frame remake by director PVS Guruprasad. As a director he has not understood the trump card of Komalkumar. Why is this taken for granted attitude from Komalkumar - whatever he does will be taken by the audience only when there is stuff throughout the film?
Ramu has ancestor property and feud. In converting his ancestral property he comes to the place he has old rivalry. It is two and half decades old rivalry. Ramu is not aware of this aspect. He comes to the house where everyone is waiting to kill him. That is Desai house. Desai son was killed by Ramu father twenty five years ago. Ramu knows this and he is caught in the wrong place. The policy of Desai is that he should not be put down inside the house but only after stepping out.
How Ramu uses his brain to stay in the Desai house to save his life is of course interesting developments in the house. He does not have 'Maryadhe' (Respect) in the house but yet forced to stay here.
Komalkumar is good in the second half. Why his fans should wait till second half to get what he can give easily? Nisha Shah has nothing to score. Rajesh is brilliant as doctor. Mukeshi Rishi is another Bolly 'Wood' actor in this film.
MM Keeravani two songs are passable. The train song cinematography with night effect by R Giri is admirable.
A remake should be rewritten to suit the actors image in Kannada is the advice for this film maker Kumaresh Thammayya.
Score - 4/10
