Getting a meaty role in the debut film itself is quite an achievement. And Anup, the son of renowned producer Sa Ra Govindu has achieved this feat.

Plot: Anup, a middle-class lad is attracted towards a girl, whose father is a well-to-do and powerful lawyer. Though their relationship was bad initially it bears fruits later. But a twist should be there for the film right? Anup, who is very innocuous, is charged in the case of a killing. It is unbelievable by his loved ones,but Anup is in a predicament. And added to this, there is also a parallel plot. 

Anup has really worked well for this film and he is at ease with acting and dancing. He indeed shows promise as a talented actor of Kannada cinema. Aditi Rao could have done better. Avinash and Sharath Lohitashava have essayed their characters nicely. The performance of Rakesh Adiaga and Madalasa Sharma deserve special mention. The movie has touched a real life event which had happened some time ago and this presentation on silver screen is indeed, a commendable attempt. The movie has the right ingredients of romance, humor and action. This movie will surely strike the right chord with the Kannada audience. Arjun Janya’s music is a solace to your ears. The editing work is outstanding. The movie doesn’t exaggerate Anup’s debut and that is something commendable. 

The narrative of Santhu will keep you hooked to the seats, since he has told it in a crisp manner. But sometimes you wonder whether it focuses on love or crime. Also, certain scenes deal with ganja smoking, which are not endurable. The film is indeed a great launch pad for Anup. There are distinct moments in the film, which should be appreciated. Also, Alemari Santhu has brought forth novel elements in this flick. 

Verdict: Watch the film to feel its freshness.
