Before we can proceed ahead for the review, I have just one question, "Why do you watch a movie?" Give it a thought and let me know.
I am sure you have your answer. This is that type of movie which may leave you inspired, emotional and enthralled.
The movie is originally a Kannada production with it being released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu & Malayalam languages.
The beginning of the movie takes you back in time to tell a story of a young boy. A young boy who wants the world.
The plot of the movie is simple and short. Its the visualization of it on the big screen takes it on a whole new different level. If you thought Bhaubali was epic in the Indian film industry, then this one is going to blow your mind.
Its a visual treat to watch and is an out and out action movie. It keeps you engrossed from the start that you wont move your eyes off it. It captures the journey of the young man whose mother makes him take a promise that he will be a rich man when he dies. From being a shoe shiner he ends up becoming the most dangerous guy.
It has its moments. From the way the story is told, the mother-son bonding, the young man's desire to become rich & powerful, the play at hand... Depends which one gets your attention.
Its the direction and the screenplay of the movie which plays a pivotal role. Prashanth Neel does a great job at it. There however is a flaw in the movie which can be overlooked which would be the love angle. It could have been shown in a better way especially the connect.
The movie protagonist Raja Krishnappa Bairya alias Rocky played by Yash does his job to the core. The intensity of the eyes especially when his face is covered with his hair & beard.
Archana Jois as the mother, Anmol Vijay as young Rocky have also done a splendid work. Srinidhi Shetty had a small role. Anant Nag & Malavika Avinash were good. So was the character who plays the house keeping role and the old Muslim guy who plays as a confidante of Rocky. I am not commenting on the grey role played by others as very small role given except for Ramachandra Raju as Garuda who killed it with his ferocity.
Overall, the movie will leave you in awe. You get the same kind of feeling that one might have felt during Bhaubhali, only bigger this time.
Its a must watch movie and on the big screens. Go for it!!
