The much expected second combination of Power star Puneeth Rajakumar and director Pawan Wodeyar, the third production of Rockline Venkatesh with Puneeth Rajakumar has many valuable elements to boast.
In the days of judiciary giving clean chit to culprits for lack of evidence, the protagonist Gagan has chalked out a brilliant step in taking revenge and finishing the wrong elements.
In the narration and change of attitude of the protagonist derived by director Pawan Wodeyar keeps the film at top range. Director Pawan Wodeyar brings in the concept of ghost and Split personality ailment in the protagonist character to meet the ends. This is what in fact the masses also like because they are always at punishing the culprits without any doubt.
Gagan (Puneeth Rajakumar) comes from West Bengal to Bengaluru to The News Media House that is headed by Avinash as editor. The powerful writings in novel style of Gagan are what his boss in the office like. But the purpose of Gagan coming to Bengaluru is on different task. To know what the task is, we have to wait for the flashback.
Shruthi is on a top class assignment to give justice to the physically handicap in the society for whom the union government spends Rs.950 crores every year in the budget. For that the article of Gagan in the newspaper is responsible.
Shruthi (Anupama Parameshwaran) bespectacled beautiful lady seeks the support of Gagan in her task. This is what irks the Union Health Minister (ravishanker) and he joins the famous criminal lawyer (Prabhakar of Bahubali fame) in killing Shruthi in Bengaluru.
Gagan comes and stays in the house where his lover Shruthi was killed and hanged. This house is declared as filled with ghost power. This is advantage for Gagan and he goes on hunt for the two top personalities.
In his search for the right address he seeks support of Saakshi (Rachita Ram) and as a matter of policy she declines to give the identity.
The second half is ‘Bharjari’ with lot of developments – action to the treat of mass audience is well composed. There was chance for director to trim 156 minutes film by twenty minutes in the first half.
Power in dance, action and acting is once again on top from power star Puneeth Rajakumar. Puneeth Rajakunce dance is itself ‘Paisa Vasool’ and other stock in him is bonus.
Anupama Parameshwaran strikes coming at the last half an hour of the film. The smile in her is something you would admire. Rachita Ram the top actress with series of hit films has not much of scope in acting.
The procession of veterans is simply marvelous. Dr BSaroja Devi, Ravishanker, Achyuth Kumar, Avinash, Srinivasamurthy, Srinivasaprabhu and Prakash belawadi are right choice for respective roles.
Chikkanna and Sadhu Kokila comedy is also a fun riot. There are three lovely songs from D Imman – the dance with Appu…..open the bottle….a melody Yaaru Neenu….Taaja Samachaara….are good scorings and well brought in the camera by Vaidhi.
We get to see some of the glimpses of Calcutta in this film. Dialogues are well written, the costumes, production values are superb.
This is a film for ‘Abhimani Devarugalu’ of power star Puneeth Raajakumar. Well supported by rest of the team members of `Natasaarvabhowma`.
Rating:4.5 /5 ****
