KVN Productions Venkat Narayan and Nisha Venkat Narayan came up with a bang in the debut Kannada film ‘Sakkath’ starring golden star Ganesh in simple Suni direction.
It is a full pack for the family - a family pack has various emotions that makes you sit and enjoy. The entertainment value in the first half is a Paisa Vasool and the second half is an additional bonus for the ticket price of the audiences.
Simple Sunil after ‘Chamak’ with golden star Ganesh has made an interesting screenplay. It is not inspired from either Andha Dhun or Kavacha. Simple Suni background voice explains the fun loaded in this film.
The right tribute has come to power star Puneeth Rajakumar as throughout the title card the photos of Puneeth Rajakumar placed is another method of keeping the legacy alive.
Here is Balu in the family who loves music and because of the beauty of Mayoori (Surabhi) he joins ‘A and Anthyakshari’ reality show that becomes a platform for him to come close. Balu goes to this reality show as a blind and his ability earns laurels. Mayoori calls him ‘Darling’. He mistakes this for friendliness. When Mayoori introduces her boyfriend, Balu is shocked.
Balu pretending as blind now comes as music teacher to Drushti School. The owner of this blind school (Ramakrishna) killed in a road accident for ‘I Witness’ is Balu. The statement given to police by blind Balu enters the courtroom.
The courtroom drama has interesting discussions. How can a blind Balu eye witness the demise on the road? There are some more interesting twists and turns. Balu after hesitation accepts the offer of blind Nishwika in the Drishti Blind School.
Simple Suni has tried his best to keep the audience`s funny bones titillating. He succeeds to a maximum extent. He got some fine support from technicians like Santosh Rai Pathaje cinematography and Judah Sandey music.
Ganesh is at ease once again. He is kool ‘Sakkat’ Maga! He has been given good lines and his comedy timing with punches continues in this film.
Beautiful Surabhi and Serene looking Nishwika Naidu are extremely good. The comedy from Giri, Sadhu Kokila, Kuri Pratap, Rangayana Raghu and others is no doubt a treat. Malavika Avinash`s presence as a judge is good. Ramakrishna, Shobaraj give able support to ‘Sakkath’.
Don`t miss this one to watch.
