Srinagara Kitty, Girish Karnad, Karan Rao, Shruthi Hariharan
Director Jacob Verghese who has given hit movies like Savaari and Prithvi, is all set for a hat trick success with Savari 2. With this, Jacob Verghese has presented a different style of movie making in Sandalwood.
If Savari was about journey of two youth?s passion for biking, Savari 2 has a completely different story line. The story revolves around Sreenivas aka Seenu's (Srinagara Kitty) obsession towards money making. In the course he meets Girish Karnad who plays the role of a journalist and Karan Rao who plays a cop.
Seenu, a small time thief, has an ultimate aim to get married to a rich girl and to get settled in life. His girlfriend (Sruthi Hariharan) is the daughter of Home Minister of the state. Kitty manages to marry marries minister?s daughter but his father-in-law turns out to be a tough nut who wants Kitty to be his own man.
Seenu, who will be obsessed towards money making without any hard work will plan to hunt forest brigand Veerappan's money in the jungle. The huge sum is still one of the biggest mysteries in Karnataka. So Seenu begins his journey in search of that money. In the course he meets Girish Karnad and Karan Rao. Karnad, a journalist, who has fallen on bad times and needs the Home Minister's help who is vary of helping him out. So he takes on board Kitty to convert Veerappan's hidden black money to white. Karan Rao who plays a cop, also has a very important role to play in the movie.
Will Seenu?s life change? Will he be successful in finding the lump-sum amount? Well you will have to watch the movie in theatre to find it out! And definitely the movie is worth a watch!
Savari had given all time hit song Marali mareyagi. Savari 2 too has impressive songs. Music by Manikanth Khadri has done wonders in the movie. Gopalkrishna Adiga's famous lines Iruvudellava Bittu (leaving what all you have) has been kept as the main theme in the film, which will be humming in our minds forever.
Besides this trio, the movie also stars Mukyamantri Chandru, Sihi Kahi Chandru, Abbas, Jeeva who does leave a memorable mark even with limited scenes. Lucia actress Shruti Hariharan and Madhurima are the lead actresses for Kitty and Karan respectively. Both the actresses have a very limited scope in the movie. They are in the movie only for few songs and a couple of scenes which is one of the major drawbacks of the movie.
Comedians Sadhu Kokila, Chikanna and Om Prakash Rao are also there in the movie to tickle your funny bones. Excellent shots, Good music and an ocean of actors and definitely a good story line makes 'Savari 2' worth watching!
Verdict: Worth Watching.
