Sharan, Asmita Sood, Tabala Nani, Ramesh Bhat
When comedy actor Sharan came up with a hit movie, Rambo last year, thereby promoting himself to the hero status after acting in 99 movies, it was widely believed that his success might be a ?flash in the pan?. But with Victory, Sharan has proved that he is here to stay as a comedy hero for some time at least.
Victory has the right mix of comedy, humour-laced dialogues, racy storyline, and songs that complement the script, including an item song, making the movie a clean entertainer. Not that the movie is perfect in every aspect, but makes it a delectable affair.
Sharan meets his life partner (Asmita Sood) and ends up marrying her in a much hurried manner. Even before the marriage is consummated, she walks out of his home suspecting him to be a prisoner. A dejected Sharan attempts suicide only to end in a comedy scene. In the process, he also made a few enemies. After his attempts to end his life become a routine affair, he hires a notorious don to eliminate him. In a twist to the tale, Sharan meets Asmita and they patch up their differences. Sharan abandons his plans to end his life, but not the people he hired earlier. The remaining part of the story is how the couple save themselves.
At times, Sharan appears to have overdone a bit in the acting department, but it is masked by the performance of other comedy stars in the movie, particularly Sadhu Kokila. Asmita is convincing, as she lends perfect support.
Music by Arjun Janya may not be top class, but one song Khaali Quarter (lyrics penned by Yograj Bhat) has become a chartbuster. Ragini Dwivedi has performed an item number in the movie and it fails to live up to the expectations. This movie is definitely for those who want a change in their routine life by laughing for a couple of hours.
