Chiranjeevi Sarja, Nikki Galrani
While remake movies are increasingly becoming a trend in Sandalwood, the Kannada audience are off late developing a not-so-good feeling about watching refurbished stories. Ajith is one of such stories that does lack the efficiency of the creativity. The combo of romance and action which has been escorted by Ajith falls flat in impressing the audience. Though a remake, the director could have managed to amend the original and could have brought in the air of creativeness, but no!! Every single detail has been replicated and the original songs composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja serve an aura of goodness.
It is love at first sight for Ajith, who just wanders around with his friends who try to fetch him a good job. It seems like a synchronized meet between the desi lad and the uber cool chic, Nikki Galrani when they meet at a railway station and Ajith is mistaken as a driver. Taking advantage of the mistaken identity, Ajith tries to woo the pretty lass throughout the road journey which is not as smooth as expected. The duo is chased by few goons and also encounters few fight sequences. Where the journey ends and if Ajith will ever be successful in revealing his love to the girl forms the climax.
Chiranjeevi Sarja?s run of the mill performance is clearly visible and nothing exciting. Debutante Nikki Galrani needs to polish her acting skills before she tries her hands on the next project. Though the story is not new, director Mahesh Babu could have made it interesting, only if he had added certain attention-grabbing elements. Music by Yuvan Shanka Raja is undoubtedly the best for the reason that it has the same tunes as that of the original. Remakes cannot always be a safe bet is what one has to understand through Ajith.
