Movie Title




Star Cast

Srinagar Kitty, Sharmila Mandre, Diganth, Rangayana Raghu, Umesh

At the outset, the movie gives an impression that it is the remake of Hindi film Mujhse Shaadi Karogi? But it is not. Director Anantharaju might have drawn inspiration from the Hindi film as there are plenty of twists and turns film with localization of story and the plot for Swayamwara.

An out-and-out comedy, Swayamwara is definitely not for serious film watchers. A laugh riot from the start till the end, you can be rest assured that it is an absolute paisa vasool.

The movie is about two teenagers ? Ajay (Srinagar Kitty) and Vijay (Diganth) ? who are in the race to win over the glamorous and fashionable neighbour Anusha (Sharmila Mandre). Ajay happens to be the genuine lover boy but hot-headed. He is always on the wrong side in his approach, courtesy Vijay, the playboy. In the process, Ajay seems to be the loser against Vijay. Anusha swings between Ajay and Vijay and the climax takes an amazing turn.

The story narration is neat and keeps the audience guessing. Add rib-tickling comedy to the plot with the best comedians of Kannada film industry ? Rangayana Raghu, Umesh, Tennis Krishna, Lakshmi Devi ? who has audience laughing all through the film. Umesh, in particular, has successful carried forward his Seethapathi character from the decade-old Golmaal series. The remaining trio of comedians is equally best in their roles.

Every artiste is at his / her natural best. Srinagar Kitty and Diganth have done a neat job justifying their comical roles. Sharmila Mandre sizzles in the role of a fashion designer. The role is tailor-made for the style icon of Kannada films. Other actors Ramesh Bhat and Sudha Belawadi have complemented the star cast of Swayamwara.

Fortunately, the movie is devoid of cheap comedy making it a family entertainer. The only drawback of the film is the music. Manikanth Kadri might have found it difficult to score music for a comedy film. Only the opening track has recall value. Otherwise, Swayamwara is a neat entertainer.

Verdict: Entertaining
