Vijay, Shuba Punj, Satyajith, Sanketh Kashi
Vijay, the Black Cheetah of Kannada cinema has worked hard and used his muscle power and showed his acting skill in a casual manner. Dialogue writer turned director MS Ramesh has given a precise commercial film and apt dialogues for the image of Vijay. There is good amount of sentiment, comedy, chilling action scenes and for the family audience this is a treat.
Basya (Vijay) was abandoned when he was a child, is brought up by a bus conductor and driver. Basya works as a cleaner and he is a good hearted innocent youth. He helps everyone who is in awful condition. Basya is strong andand that is his asli ?Thakkath? (strength).
To showcase his strength, there is very good scope as the village chieftain daughter Bagya (Shuba Punj) falls in love with him. The village chieftain and his brother mistakes Basya and they have an equal fight with Basya. All this time Basya an innocent in love challenges the village chieftain that he will start loving Bagya seriously. The post interval is how the clash engulfs to the peak.
Vijay leaves a strong impression that he is another Tiger Prabhakar of Kannada cinema. The casual style of acting and well written dialogues for him is what earns him good score. Shuba Punj looks pretty and has also done an impressive work. Shobaraj and Rangayana Raghu combination is very good. Satyajith, Sanketh Kashi and Mandya Ramesh are very supportive.
Two songs scored by Gurukiran Kannambadi?.Bara Bara Jokumara?..are foot tapping. Dasari Seenu has done a very good work in his camera because he has placed the camera in the running bus most of the time.
A film strictly for Vijay fans!
Verdict ? Average
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
