Title - Manasology, Producer, Director - Deepak Aras, Music - Anoop, Cinematography - Sugnaan, Cast - Amoolya, Rakesh, Achyuth Kumar, Sadhu Kokila and others.
In the debut director Deepak Aras has not made a worthwhile attempt that can stay for a long. He has not showed any signs of promise as the proceedings are routine and easily understandable from the point of view of audience.
The gripping things are less when the film is heroine oriented. Either it should have stunning performance or give room for guessing moments for the audience. Both the things have not happened in 'Manasology'. Deepak Aras has a long way to go. Deepak Aras directed his sister Amoolya who has a pretty good status in the Kannada cinema industry and not given enough chance for her to emote.
Sihi (Amoolya) very close to her father Achu (Achuythkumar) is a violin teacher in an institute. She is in love with a stranger whom she had not seen but spoken over telephone. The conversation over a period of time develops into a love. Sihi and Manas have not seen each other. The shock is for Sihi father Achu as the news of Manas death in the road accident. Achu keeps the demise of Manas to himself. Sihi not getting telephone calls from Manas is in depression. Knowing this depression another young guy tries to fill the loss pretending as Manas.
Now Sihi's father is not ready to accept this newcomer Manas. Manas (Rakesh) admit his fault but Sihi getting duped initially from him learns the fact from her father.
Amoolya looks plum and her charm is not visible on screen. Amoolya of 'Cheluvina Chittara' is not found here in this film of her own banner. Rakesh has to refine himself in acting.
Character artist Achuyuth Kumar is the saving grace and so is music director Anoop Seelin and cameraman Sugnaan.
Anoop has given three lovely tunes and film to film he is showing that he is a promising music director. In his earlier film 'I am sorry....Anoop done a fantastic job.
Sugnaan has second release in one week gap. His work was good in 'Lifu Ishtene' and he continues his profound knowledge in cinematography in this film 'Manasology' too.
Verdict - 5/10
