What happens after his arrival? Did the junior get back his divorce idea? Watch the film in theaters.

Star Performance

Upendra has done a dual role and he has shown his acting prowess once again. Uppi’s dialogue delivery is neat and stylish, as ever. Prema’s reentry is surprising and she has done her best, as usual. Sruthi has no big role to do, but she does a satisfying job.


Arun Loknath has remade the Telugu super hit film Soggade Chinni Nayana with some alterations that suit the Kannada sensibilities. However, the film is just a ditto of the Telugu film but with Uppi’s style.

What’s There?

  • Uppi and Prema’s combination; their chemistry is still fresh
  • The film has all the fascinating elements including comedy, action, sentiment and romance
  • Arun Loknath’s execution is appreciable

What’s Not There?

  • The film is not at the right pace
  • Logic is missing


If you want to watch an entertainer just to pass your time, this movie will entertain you. If you are a person, who wants some social message with a logical theme, then this won’t match your requirements. However, Upendra Matte Baa is worth watching, once!
