Watched the Kannada movie ‘Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu’ today, which has opened to critical acclaim. Debut director Hemanth Rao has given a film that speaks about the inconsiderate nature of most of today’s youngsters who does not care much about their aged and sick parents, but not in a preachy or propaganda style.
‘Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu’ is a film that tries to entertain and experiment in its own form. It has its share of heart-warming and heart-wrenching scenes, humour reliefs wherever needed with a well-etched writing and a great casting which makes you call it a ‘special film’ when you leave the cinema hall. It is a film that you cannot miss for its performances, unforgettable characters and for its style of capturing the miniscule feelings and happenings that we across in our life every day. Every other actor in this film has done a splendid job – Anant Nag as the 66 years old Venkob Rao who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, Rakshit Shetty as his son Shiva, Sruthi Hariharan as the worried doctor Sahana, Achyuth Kumar as Kumar and Vasishta Simha as the contract killer Ranga. The scene where Anant Nag shares his love story is enough to tell how brilliant his acting was! Rakshith and Shruthi has delivered a flawless performance, especially in the second half.
It is so delightful to see Kannada Cinema rising high with such attempts like LUCIA, THITHI, ULIDAVARU KANDANTHE, U-TURN and GODHI BANNA SADHARANA MYKATTU which tries to be pure, perfect and uncompromising!!
