Movie Title

Baaji

Director

Srinivas Shidlaghatta

Star Cast

? Alok, Raani, Ananthnag, Kishore, Rangayana Raghu

Quite an impressive story line is marred by an unimpressive screenplay. Quite an impressive story line is marred by an unimpressive screenplay. Veteran actor Kashinath?s son Alok is the mainstay with some good support from the cinematography, music and character artists. ?Baaji? meaning bets could have been a good entertainer had the television director Srinivas Shidlaghatta applied scissors to inconsequential scenes.

Baaji (Alok) has taken a betting with his friend that he would runaway with his friend fianc? and leave her at the marriage hall. Baaji is surprised to know that the girl he had kidnapped is someone else who has already eloped from her house. That is Priya (Raani) daughter of a trouble monger Kittappa who is famous for betting. Priya seeks a place to live with Baaji and she is brought to his house where Baaji father confuses as she is the lover of his son. That is not true because Priya is the ill fated girl as her father Kittappa had lost her in the betting with Abdul Khan the don from Mumbai. The foreign returned Priya in fact is in love with another boy Abhi (Santosh).

So the confusions, misconceptions take the story to a difficult spot. Priya is forced to marry Abdul Khan because Abhi has sketched a plan who is none other than younger brother of Abdul Khan. What happens in the marriage hall is interesting portion in the end.

Alok has the height and looks are OK but he has to improve in dialogue delivery and be more comfortable on the screen. However he ispromising. Kishore as Abdul Khan takes the cream of applaud. Rangayana Raghu for his comic stay gives some relief needed for the film. Ananthnag is as usual gem on the screen for his cool and composed performance.

Cinematography by Sundarnath Suvarna is another plus point of this film while Sundar C Babu has been able to give two lovely tunes.

On the whole it is an average film.
