Mohanlal, Puneeth Rajkumar, Archana, Bhavana Menon
The era of experimental movies has just begun in Sandalwood and Mythri is another value addition to this list. The movie, which deals around the real life stories of youngsters serving life imprisonment, has been neatly woven to keep the audience engaged till the climax.
Basically, the movie revolves around a youngster and how he recollects his childhood. Various characters including Puneeth, Mohan Lal, Atul Kulkarni, Ravi Kaale enters his life and how they inspire him in taking his life further.
Puneeth has bounced back like a phoenix! No punch dialogues, no unnecessary fights and running around the trees and such filmy things as he plays himself in the film. Puneeth, who was once known for uniqueness in choosing scripts, was however overshadowed with his mass roles of late. He comes out as himself with Mythri, which was much-needed to him, at this point of his career.
Mohan Lal enters the scene in the second half of the film, which is sure to take one on a different journey. His dialogue delivery, screen presence, acting is simply brilliant.
In fact, Archana has more screen space in the film compared to lead actress Bhavana. The duo however is on screen only for a while and has done their jobs neatly. Ilaiyaraaja's music is a big plus for the film; songs 'Hudugatave Hudukatavo..', 'Idu Yaava Lokavo...', 'Aakasha Meluntu...' take audience down the memory lane.
Giriraj has proved himself again and is sure to walk away with awards this year. More the number of actors more will be the expectation about the film and Mythri definitely stands up to the expectation of the audience.
Mythri is one of the most sensible films made of late and a classy touch is given for the film. Mythri is a clean film with not much of glitches.
