Rakshit Shetty : Al Pacino of KFI! Brilliant movie!
Chapter 1: As the title says, its "Ulidavaru Kandante". This crime comedy thriller depends on how you see and understand the movie. It's always difficult to direct a movie with non-linear storyline and intertwined plots. But, Rakshit Shetty has done a stunning job with his first venture as a Director! I can sense the influence of Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie and Christopher Nolan on him. It's a really good thing that Rakshit is influenced by such great directors. Chapter 2: Film connects by intersecting story lines(perspectives) of different characters. So, be very attentive in the cinema hall else you'll miss a part of it and you might miss something which has a connection to a different scene.The CGI use in few scenes reminded me of Sin City. Little reference of pop culture is well captured and it plays an important role in the movie. Actually, it was quite brilliant. The best part of the movie is its regional flavour(Mangaluru and TuLu). Chapter 3: Songs and Background score by Ajaneesh Loknath is amazing! Background score is as important as the dialogues in the movie because it sets the mood to the movie. It can give nice contrast to the movie and it is absolutely mind-blowing in this movie. BG score has a strong impact on few characters and it's incredible. Using TuLu words in few dialogues and songs is a really good thing since it exposes the regional aura to the rest of Karnataka. Few directors and music directors in KFI should learn a bit from this movie. Chapter 4: Rakshit is all over the movie and his character is really diabolical(li'l harsh but yes he is). He's the "Al Pacino" of Kannada Film Industry now! Shetre, super neevu! Achyuta Kumar, Sheetal, Kishore, Tara and the entire cast has done a great job. The kid "Democracy" is just fantastic and his dialogue delivery was spectacular! I think that kid has a great future. Final Chapter: To everyone who think the movie is slow, that is because the movie grows with every single scene and that is how it should be. It is definitely not slow. I think the movie meets all the expectations which a good movie should have. People should definitely watch this movie in theaters instead of crying that there are no good movies made in Kannada. Yes, I'm talking about you haters! Specially, few people(kannadigas in my friends list) who'll watch all other language movies in theaters except Kannada movies which they'll download from the internet after the digital print is released. Get your lazy arse up and watch the movie in the theater when its still running! Personally, I feel this movie should appear in the top 250 IMDb movies list. And, its a perfect ten(10/10)! #UlidavaruKandante
