| A well shot hostage drama
Sunil Kumar Desai(SKD) directed "Nishkarsha" was a well shot hostage drama. SKD is known to be one of the few directors in Kannada Cinema who has dared to experiment with creative approaches to narrate a story. "Nishkarsha" unfolds the story of a bank robbery that takes place in broad daylight in an otherwise peaceful Manipal Center in Bangalore City. The bank employees and the customers in the bank at that moment are trapped in a lethal trap with nowhere to run. Anant Nag is the Commissioner of Police who tries various ways to get into the bank but without much luck. B.C.Patil, the kingpin behind the robbery project, threatens to start throwing people down one by one if his demands are not met. Without a choice, Anant summons a special commando force led by Vishnuvardhan who aids in the rescue operation.

A tightly scripted screenplay and good editing keeps this story from falling apart. Performances worth mentioning include Suman Nagarkar, who gets violated in the process of trying to help but gets her revenge towards the end. Anant Nag and Vishnu are at their best with years of professional experience backing them up. B.C.Patil plays the wooden faced villain who threatens to bring the entire state to a halt with this shocking take over.

"Nishkarsha" was a unique experiment for SKD and it worked very well. I always enjoy watching it despite knowing how it ends because the scenes keep you engrossed and makes the goings on interesting. With no songs and other needless distractions, SKD manages to hold the attention of the viewer till the very end.

A must watch for Kannada fans worldwide.
