Parapancha had created a huge hype due to its commendable casting and the support of a quality filmmaker as Yogaraj Bhat; it is a Yogaraj Movies productions. But ironically, the movie, though, had raised the bars high, didn’t live up to the standards.


Parapancha is a restaurant cum bar, and different individuals with varying problems get into the bar and go back calmed after getting solutions. Diganth is a waiter who helps the people in coming out of their problems. 

Star Performances

Diganth is his cool self while Ananth Nag does a convincing job. Ragini Dwivedi looks lovely in her role as a bar dancer. Rangayanana Raghu has the most of the dialogues, and they are sometimes annoying.


Krish Joshi, the director of Parapancha (who is known for Gandhi Smiles), has helmed direction after a gap of three years. This is his second endeavor as a director. The director seemed to have good intent but ultimately the movie falters. Krish Joshi has also penned the story of the movie. The movie was also in the news since a portion of the title song was sung by Huccha Venkat. Yogaraj Bhatt has made a special appearance in the movie.

What’s there?

The premise is refreshing, and the title is fitting since different people with varying worldly problems enter the bar. 

What’s not there?

  • Some of the characters are not crafted properly. 
  • The movie is brimming with dialogues, which is quite taxing. The dialogues are also preachy. 
  • The movie is in a dearth of clarity. 
  • There is a lack of intensity in the movie. 
  • The movie is supposed to be happening in a bar, but surprisingly none of the characters eat anything. 


If you expect the movie Parapancha to be a consummate entertainer, then this is not the right one for you.
