ONTHARA BANNAGALU MOVIE REVIEW - CINELOKA

Film: Onthara Bannagalu

Director: Sunil Bhima Rao

Cast: Kiran Srinivas, Pratap Narayan, Praveen Jain, Hita Chandrasekhar, Sonu Gowda, Dattanna, Lohitasva, Sharath Lohitasva, Tennis Krishna, Sadhu Kokila, Suchendra Prasad, Asha Latha and others.

.

Debutante director Sunil Bhima Rao has selected a feel good realistic narration pattern for his debut film “Onthara Bannagalu”. The director, without straying from the concept, has narrated the different lifestyles and ambitions and concepts of different people.

.

It is about Jai (Kiran Srinivas), Sri (Pratap Narayan) and Ram (Praveen Jain) who want to get some relief from their mundane life. Inspired and motivated by a senior citizen (Dattanna), the trio embarks on a three-day tour. They decided to visit Badami, Hubballi and Mangaluru. Janaki (Sonu Gowda) from Hubballi and Hita (Hita Chandrasekhar) also join them. Their concepts and lifestyles and flashback unfold during the journey. The flashback consists with love, hate, emotion and sentiment that will cater to the needs of the audiences who want to spend their leisure and valuable time by spending their hard-earned money.

.

The film has many scenes that have the potential to relate to the audiences. For example, Pratap Narayan’s performance deserves appreciation. He represents the people, especially youth, who have missed their grandparents. Praveen Jain represents those who are cautious before taking a decision. Kiran Srinivas represents those with broken hearts.

.

Songs, especially the particular songs ‘Olavina Aaseyu Shuru’ and ‘Enanno Hudukuthaa’ are very good. Music by B J Bharath deserves a pat on his back. Cinematographer Manohar Joshi has done a commendable job behind the camera in capturing beautiful locations of Hubballi and Badami.

.

As far as the performance of the artistes is concerned, Kiran Srinivas, Pratap Narayan and Praveen Jain have acted well. Hita Chandrasekhar is convincing. Sonu Gowda, as a girl from Hubballi, has acted well. Dattanna, Lohitasva, Sadhu Kokila provided good support.

.

If the director had added few more entertaining elements, the film would have been much more appealing and commercially viable.

If you are a fan of slow narrative feel good entertainers, Onthara Bannagalu is a perfect pick for this weekend.
